In-house lab + all digital technology

We have four iTero digital scanners to send exact computer models to start Invisalign or SureSmile braces, meaning we have eliminated gooey impressions for these cases!

We also build all of our jaw appliances and retainers in-house, so our doctors have more control over fit and timing of early intervention tools, mostly used for children.

Choose Your Smile Experience

We'll help guide your smile experience and find whether your smile would respond best with Invisalign clear aligners or braces. Or, a young child may have other early interceptive orthodontic options that we can help with during growth.

We get started with a free digital scan, which takes five minutes or less and includes a smile simulation so you can see what is possible for your own smile!

What is

Early Interceptive Orthodontics?

Around age 7, children have a mix of baby (primary) and permanent teeth. Having your first free visit as permanent teeth take the place of baby teeth, and as the face and jaws are growing, gives our doctors a lot of information.

If a problem exists, or if one is developing, our doctors are able to advise you on whether treatment is recommended, when it should begin, what form treatment will take, and estimate its length. If you’re thinking about an orthodontic check-up for your child, our consultation is free!

Emma's Story

Schoettger Orthodontics gave me my best smile!

Starting life with a severe underbite, Dr. Schoettger helped align my jaw for the first phase. I was in grade school at the time and he answered my questions, helping me to understand exactly what was happening.

For the second phase, under the care of Dr. Jared Schoettger, my adult teeth were moved to bring my bite into perfect alignment.

Both doctors have a fun sense of humor that made me look forward to seeing them each visit. I'm grateful for my beautiful smile and thank everyone at Schoettger Orthodontics for making it happen!

"Emma's treatment journey is a great example of early interceptive orthodontics!

Her first phase was important to remove functional crossbites and interferences. When she had all of her adult teeth in, we were able to align her teeth into her wonderful smile she has today."

Everyone at Schoettger Orthodontics is so welcoming! They are really personable which helps with a potentially scary situation for a kid. I completely trust the staff to take care of my daughter (and as most of us mom's know, it isn't always easy to do)! I have referred Schoettger Orthodontics to several people and will continue to do so!
