The American Association of Orthodontists recommends that your child receive his or her initial orthodontic screening at about age 7. During this screening, our orthodontists will determine if your child will need orthodontic treatments, and when those treatments should begin. Drs. Wiltshire and Brassington rarely offer treatments for children this young, instead welcoming them into our gROwing Smiles program so that we can monitor their growth and development. If treatment is necessary, we will work with you to provide effective, gentle care for your child. Call Richmond Orthodontics today at 804-740-7281 for more information on early orthodontics in Richmond, Virginia, and to make your child’s appointment at our office.
