Home   Orthodontists   Orthodontist – Dartmouth

Dr. Andrew Thompson and Dr. Kevin Knowlton are the Orthodontists at the Docbraces Dartmouth office, and with their team of experts, they provide the best orthodontic treatment to patients ranging in age from 7 to 70 and up! The office is located on Baker Drive, and all new patients receive their initial consultation for free. Call and make your appointment today!

Have you been told you might need to see an orthodontist but aren’t exactly sure what they do? Orthodontists are specially trained to identify and help solve dental problems that stem from having poorly aligned jaw relationships or irregular bites or issues from a combination of both of these. Going without treatment for these issues can have longstanding health consequences and can even harm your self-esteem.

The Docbraces offices are all fitted with the highest quality diagnostic equipment to help our orthodontists determine which issues you face and the best way to help you achieve your goals and alleviate any pain you might be having.

Dartmouth Orthodontist Treatments

In our Dartmouth, Nova Scotia office, we offer treatments such as:

  • Invisalign
  • Clear braces
  • Damon Clear braces
  • Friction-free braces
  • Express Smiles™ treatment for certain candidates.

Did you know that beyond getting rid of pain or finally getting you the smile you’ve always wanted, there are other benefits to orthodontic treatment? Better alignment of your teeth helps you to chew your food better resulting in improved absorption of nutrients, and you’ll also notice improved oral hygiene.
