Because of Tori’s reluctance to smile, we decided it was time to pursue some orthodontic treatment. Her teeth were pretty bad, and definitely affected her self confidence. We were referred by some neighbors, and couldn’t have been more pleased with each visit. The staff were amazing. Her braces are now off, and we are not only happy with the results but proud that her smile is back! Thanks to you all.

I have been very satisfied with the process and particularly the efficiency of the staff and time. It has been a very positive experience for my daughter and I appreciate the care for each and every visit.
- Jolene C.
We’ve been very pleased with our daughter’s care. The staff has been very friendly and capable, and any emergencies have been quickly accommodated. Our two oldest children now have gorgeous straight smiles, and we’ll definitely be bringing our youngest to Dr. Sheffield as well.
- Sarah S.
Thank you! Everyone deserves a beautiful smile. It inspires confidence and presence before a word is spoken. Our first child looks amazing and handsome, and now our second child, too. I will spend my life adoring theses two, handsome men and their beautiful smiles!

We have completed Joseph’s second phase with Dr. Sheffield. We are thrilled with the results! Thank you to all the staff who have always been courteous, friendly & helpful. Thank you to Dr. Sheffield for the excellent care and attention to our son’s treatment.

Dr. Rob + Staff were very gentle and kind. It was such a great orthodontic experience. We are very happy with our beautiful new smile. We never felt any pressure to proceed with treatment. The kids really love all the fun prizes and the feeling of fun & family!

Our experience has been wonderful here at Dr. Sheffield’s office. All the dental assistants have been extremely wonderful. Sarah has been especially instrumental in this experience for Cecilia. She has always answered all questions, and has demonstrated professionalism and extreme patience with both Cecilia and us. Dr. Sheffield has been very nice to work with, and Cecilia loves his personality. We would like to thank you all.

Both my daughters have gone through full orthodontic treatments and both have beautiful smiles. Thanks to the office staff for your organizational skills, setting our appointments to work with school and after school activities. Also making my girls feel comfortable and answering all our questions. Great experience overall and two beautiful smiles to show off.

I had a good experience with my braces. Glad they are off. Some people don’t usually smile with their braces but I was proud and I still am.
- Haley M.
The staff here are excellent! They always put the patient first and are really sweet. Thanks so much!
- Amanda H.
My whole family has had braces, except Dad. My Mom trusts this office and so did my brother. Now I do, too. This was a great experience and has taught me what I need to do to keep my mouth healthy. Thank you Dr. Sheffield & staff!
- Tyler F.
As far as braces go, this experience was much better than my first time when I was a child. The fact that I had to have them again is an indicative of how much they didn’t know 20 years ago. I am confident that this time will be the last time!
The staff are excellent and Dr. Sheffield’s observations and treatment were spot on! I now have a great smile that I have no doubt will last forever. Thank you all!!!

Invisalign® straightens your teeth without wires and brackets, using a series of clear, customized, removable appliances called aligners. It’s virtually undetectable, which means hardly anyone will know that you’re straightening your teeth.
The Invisalign® System combines advanced 3-D computer graphics technology with 100-year-old science of orthodontics. Invisalign® aligners are designed to move your teeth in small steps to the desired final position prescribed by your orthodontist. Each aligner is precisely calibrated and manufactured to fit your mouth at each stage of the treatment plan. Your first step is to visit our office to determine if Invisalign® is right for you. After sending precise treatment instructions, Invisalign® uses advanced computer technology to translate these instructions in a sequence of finely calibrated aligners — as few as 12 or as many as 48. Each aligner is worn for about two weeks and only taken out to eat, brush and floss. As you replace each aligner with the next, your teeth will begin to move gradually — week-by-week until the final alignment prescribed is attained. Then you'll be smiling like you never have before!
If you want to learn more about Invisalign® and how it works, please visit the Invisalign® Homepage.
To ensure the best possible results, only an orthodontist who has been trained and certified by Align Technology can diagnose and treat using Invisalign®. Invisalign® is not intended for children and is not appropriate for every adult. Only an orthodontist can determine if this treatment is an effective option for you. To see if Invisalign® can help you achieve the smile you've always wanted, contact us to make an appointment.
A. You must wear your aligners for up to 22 hours daily. You may remove them for eating, drinking and regular oral hygiene.
A. No. Unlike braces, you may eat whatever you like as long as you remove the aligners before eating. Prior to placing the aligners back on, it is important to brush your teeth and the aligners after you eat.
A. Like any orthodontic treatment, there is a short adjustment period. The more you speak with the aligners on, the quicker you will adjust.
A. There will be some pressure and minor discomfort for a day or two after each initial insertion. This is a sign that your teeth are moving sequentially into their final position.
A. It is recommended that you remove your aligners prior to chewing gum as the gum will stick to the aligners.
A. We discourage smoking with aligners as the cigarette smoke will tend to discolor them.
A. Brushing them with toothpaste will keep them fresh and clean.
A. Regular office visits are every five to six weeks. This will ensure that your Invisalign® treatment is progressing as planned.
A. All orthodontic patients are instructed to wear their retainers at night indefinitely. Sleeping with your retainers in at night will ensure a healthy bite and maintain the new position of your teeth.
A. Treatment time varies depending on the severity of the misaligned teeth. Treatment time can be shorter than traditional braces, between six and 18 months.
A. Yes, if their teeth, including second molars, have grown in completely.
