Our office is unique in that we utilize the Patient Manager System, which Dr. Bray first implemented and now presents to other orthodontists, helping them to use the system in their office. When you come to our office, you will be assigned to a patient manager. Your patient manager works with the doctor and will see you each time you come to the office for a visit. By having your own patient manager, you are able to form a relationship with the person who knows all about your treatment.
Our team keeps up-to-date on new orthodontic advances by attending continuing education classes and many seminars, conferences, and lectures every year.
We are a strong team that works together to provide the best orthodontic treatment to our favorite member of our team: YOU! We hold many staff meetings and retreats to continue to communicate the need of our patients to each other and to consistently provide treatment in the best possible manner.
Our orthodontic team of professionals has more than 125 years combined experience in providing outstanding orthodontic services to our patients.
