We enjoy helping patients of all ages achieve a more esthetic and healthy smile. Dr. Goodwin has had patients as young as age three and patients in their 70’s and 80’s and every age in between.
There are patients with specific problems who benefit from early treatment including those with crossbites and severe crowding. Generally, however, Dr. Goodwin prefers to wait until most of the primary teeth have been lost before initiating treatment.
It is very beneficial to see patients at younger ages (seven to nine) so that we can identify early needs and watch growth trajectories. We do not charge for examination appointments so there are no worries about being seen too early.
There are no referrals necessary so all are welcome to come in for an opinion.
