Early intervention

Early orthodontic consultations allow Dr Hou to catch misalignments before they arise, treat existing issues with ease, and set the stage of a healthy oral care routine for your child - one that lasts a lifetime.

We welcome patients as young as six years old

We encourage parents to schedule a free consultation for your child before they reach seven years old. They may not need any orthodontic intervention at that time, but it will allow Dr Hou to monitor the development of their teeth and jaws and schedule future visits.
