Dr Connell believes that when it comes to orthodontic care, often times, less is more. He provides kind and gentle care; simply applying modern and efficient treatment techniques. Dr Connell’s commitment to lifelong learning shines through in the work he does with dental students. He has served as an adjunct associate professor at Marquette University’s highly regarded Dental School for more than 20 years and is active in several study clubs.
Proper dental care with orthodontics takes only a little extra effort, but it will be well worth it. Brushing often can speed up your treatment time and will prevent plaque from making marks on your teeth. All the brackets and wires in your mouth create places for plaque to hide. Plaque is sticky and made up of food and bacteria. When plaque attaches your braces and teeth, it causes cavities, swollen gums, bad breath, and can even permanently stain your teeth around where your brackets used to be.
We expect a big smile after the braces come off, but we think you should smile every time you walk through the door, too. Here’s what to expect when you schedule your first meetings and become a patient with us.
