Welcome to our practice! We appreciate the trust you have placed in us. Our number-one goal is to provide the highest quality orthodontic care in a family-based, high-technology practice. Using proven state-of-the-art technology to enhance your experience, we maintain the most advanced procedures and equipment available including digital radiography, digital photography, and advanced computer graphics to ensure that you achieve a healthy and beautiful smile.

We offer a unique orthodontic experience that is fun, affordable, interactive, and effective. Combining the right mix of personal care, high technology, and continuing education, we maintain a commitment to our patients in every facet of our practice. If you have questions or concerns, please let us know.

Dr. Hicks and McMurphy have frequent team meetings with their orthodontic staff and other dental care providers to assure that you are receiving the highest level of care.

Our Patient Incentive Program provides reinforcement and rewards for children and adult patients who cooperate in the areas of hygiene, keeping appointments, appliance wear, etc.

We offer a choice of clear or silver braces as well as Invisalign® clear aligners and lingual braces. We use invisible (“clear”) retainers whenever possible and permanent bonded lower retainers.

We use a digital camera and video imaging as part of our educational system to demonstrate different treatment steps and options.

We offer flexible payment arrangements for those who qualify, as well as insurance billing services that maximize your insurance on a monthly basis.

We have a 24-hour pager service. You will always be able to reach us!

Most importantly, we believe in the “Golden Rule of Orthodontics,” which means that Drs. Hicks and McMurphy and their team will treat you as if you were part of their family. This simple concept will make your orthodontic treatment an extraordinary experience.
