Complimentary Orthodontic Exams

The AAO (American Association of Orthodontists) recommends all children get an evaluation with an orthodontic specialist no later than age 7. Early treatment may prevent or intercept more serious problems from developing as well as make treatment at a later age shorter and less complicated.

At TK Orthodontics…Learn more about our orthodontics…, we’ve designed an exclusive and fun Kids Club for your little ones!

Our amazing “Smile Squad” Kids Club is our pre-orthodontic guidance program for patients ages seven and up.

This program allows us to monitor your child’s development with periodic evaluations every six to nine months.

Thanks to these complimentary evaluations, Dr. Kula is able to:

  • Intercept skeletal and dental abnormalities at an early age to guide facial growth, tooth eruptions, and positions

  • Minimize more extensive and lengthy treatment at a later age

  • Achieve results that are almost impossible once the face and jaws have finished growing

Let’s be proactive and get an early start!

Monitor. Intercept. Correct.

Dr. Kula uses early treatment to prevent problems and set your child up for a lifetime of smiles.

As your orthodontic specialist, Dr. Kula urges parents to bring children in for a check-up by age of seven. This approach is supported by the American Association of Orthodontists…Opens a new window to the AAO website….

Early treatment allows Dr. Kula…Meet Dr. Kula… to discover potential orthodontic issues before they affect your child’s growth! Using our interceptive oral appliances can mean improved speech development, better treatment outcomes, and less need for future orthodontic procedures.

Here are some conditions Dr. Kula’s excellent care can help prevent:

  • Early or late loss of baby teeth

  • Difficulty in chewing or biting

  • Mouth breathing

  • Jaws that shift or make sound

  • Biting the cheek or the roof of the mouth

  • Facial imbalance

  • Grinding or clenching of the teeth

Dr. Kula only uses the highest quality appliances so your child can benefit from modern orthodontics in the most comfortable manner possible.
