Advanced Systems. Better, Functional Smiles.

Marshall Dental Excellence provides orthodontic treatment right here in our office. Dr. Andrew is certified in the Tip Edge orthodontic system. Tip Edge completes orthodontic treatment more quickly and with less discomfort than traditional braces. They look like regular metal braces, but the brackets and forces are a little different and change your smile more quickly. 

Orthodontics is often considered a rite of passage for pre-teens and teens, but braces are for adults too. If you have aspects of your smile that aren’t as straight as you’d like or you have issues with your bite, orthodontics might be the best way to improve your concerns.

One of the biggest benefits of getting your orthodontic care at our dental office is that we provide two complimentary teeth cleanings per year in addition to your two regular cleanings while you are in braces. We take off all the wires so that we have the best access to clean around your brackets. Oral hygiene while wearing braces is important to a bright smile and healthy teeth when your treatment is finished—we love that we can help out with the resources right here in our office. 

Give us a call to set up a free consultation.

Give us a call to set up a free consultation (no referral needed) or talk to Dr. Andrew or your hygienist about orthodontics. We will start by assessing your smile and bite to determine if you are a good candidate for braces in our office. We will walk you through the whole process at that time.

Clear Correct Web

Clear Correct

Dr. Andrew uses Clear Correct in our office for patients that want to change the alignment of their teeth, but don’t want to go with metal braces. Dr. Andrew will use a series of clear trays that slowly and gently move your teeth into position. We will assess if your teeth and goals for your smile are a fit for Clear Correct treatment, then we can get you started as soon as you are ready. Just ask at your next checkup, or give us a call.

Need a Little Tweak?

Six Month Smiles

Do you just need a little tweak? Things are mostly fine, but there’s a little misalignment up front? Six-month smiles might be perfect for you. A more affordable option—six-month smiles uses brackets on just the front teeth, and you can be done with treatment in no time! 


Orthodontics are an investment that pays off for a lifetime (if you wear your retainer!). We love to work with families to figure out a financial plan to make the cost of braces doable over the course of treatment. Typically braces stay on for 18 months to 2 years, and we can spread the cost out over that period. Many patients set up an automatic payment for their convenience. We will also explore your insurance coverage for orthodontics if applicable.
