Before Braces

At Lincoln Orthodontics, we believe that before braces you should schedule your first orthodontic visit, as it is the most important one.

At your first appointment, you will be welcomed by our team and introduced to our board-certified orthodontist, Dr. Emily Willett.

First Visit for Kids

Our highly-trained, orthodontic treatment coordinator will then take some digital photographs of your teeth and any other scans needed. Say Cheese!

After reviewing these records, Dr. Emily Willett will join you to discuss your individualized treatment plan and point out any specific areas of concern.

She will take as much time as needed to answer your before braces questions and decide what kind of orthodontic treatment is best for you.

Our team will make sure to explain everything from scheduling to expected discomfort levels, to finances and payment options. Our goal is to make sure that no question goes unanswered.

Testimonial Lincoln Orthodontics

Dr. Willett and her staff were extremely enjoyable and responsive to any questions or concerns. At two different points we voiced concerns about our daughter’s profile and alignment. Promptly the concerns were addressed to our complete satisfaction.

Dr Willett and her staff are so knowledgeable and friendly. I have recommended Dr Willett to multiple people. I have had a great experience at Lincoln Orthodontics for the last 18 months. I’m so happy with the results that I’ve had from invisalign.

Michelle H.

Dr. Willett did such an amazing job on these 30 year old teeth. The entire staff at Lincoln Orthodontics is so friendly and accommodating. If I had more teeth I’d bring them here to get straightened out.

Palate Expanders + Services

A very common early orthodontic problem we see at Lincoln Orthodontics are crowded teeth or crossbites. Palatal expanders are a tried and true method of correction that is custom-fabricated and designed to solve your individual and specific problem. Expanders can be used with or without braces and can dramatically improve the esthetics, function, jaw alignment, bite, and orthodontic outlook for our pediatric or adolescent patients.

Kid’s Club | JRs Program

At your first visit, we invite you to join the Lincoln Orthodontics JR’s Club, even if no treatment is needed right away! Our team knows how important your teeth are, so we offer a free, growth observation program for those who are not quite ready for full orthodontic treatment. Dr. Emily Willett and our team check your teeth and mouth regularly to determine the proper time for future orthodontic work.

We do this by watching the eruption patterns of your permanent teeth, making sure the roots of baby teeth are being resorbed, and monitoring the growth of your jaw. With early monitoring we can reduce future treatment time and complexity. It will save you time and money! This program only requires us to see you every 6-12 months and we will notify your pediatric or general dentist with any new recommendations we may have. We would love to welcome you to the Lincoln Orthodontics JR’s family. Join us now to start your perfect smile journey earlier than ever!
