These changes and new protocols may certainly cause some confusion at the beginning, so please do not hesitate to ask questions if you have concerns. These changes will be temporary. We hope to get back to our normal practice routine as soon as feasible.

We look forward to seeing you all in the near future.

Discover the Difference

At Perrin Orthodontics, we are definitely not your typical orthodontic practice. Which makes sense, because you’re not typical either. Every smile is unique and there is more to a great smile than just straight teeth. Your smile is a reflection of who you are and can impact how you feel about yourself. You might feel your teeth are a tiny bit crooked or you might feel they’re totally snaggled. No matter what, our goal is to help the real you shine through with your best smile. Let the team at Perrin Orthodontics help you achieve your smile goals. Smile, for real!!

Welcome to Perrin Orthodontics - not your typical practice

Kids smile hundreds of times a day.
Their smiles are so innocent, so hopeful, and so full of that mischievous fun they love to get into.

What's the difference between an orthodontist and a dentist?

A dentist is similar to your family doctor — great for check-ups and maintaining the general health of your teeth and mouth. An orthodontist is a specialist who has three years of additional University education focusing exclusively on orthodontic treatment. An orthodontist also has expertise in a variety of treatment techniques and can help you chose the treatment option that’s best for you.
