Orthodontic Care

Creating smiles that last a lifetime...

Dr. Lepetich believes that caring for a pediatric patient is more than diagnosing and completing a procedure. Over the years, his concern for children’s oral health expanded beyond pediatric dentistry and he became particularly sensitive to the delicate emotions of children who hesitated to smile because their teeth were not as straight as they wished them to be. Dr. Lepetich developed such a strong interest in orthodontics that he completed additional instruction in the delivery of orthodontic care for his patients in addition to pediatric dentistry.
