We call Larkspur Landing home, which is the site of the former Old Hutchison Gravel Quarry where movie classic Dirty Harry was filmed. Now the site has been converted into the popular, thriving, family-friendly open air atmosphere of the Marin Country Mart which draws people from all over the San Francisco Bay Area for its Farmer’s Market, great restaurants, exercise classes, live music and shopping. Our office is located in the professional building directly across the street from the Marin Country Mart.

The American Association of Orthodontics recommends that every child is screened by an orthodontist at age 7. For children who have significant jaw discrepancies or severe crowding, early treatment is the only way to achieve an optimal final result long term and to minimize the need for jaw surgery.
In our office, we prefer to offer early treatment to those patients who have a functional need for it, unless the family has a specific aesthetic concern they feel cannot wait. For many years, the total percentage of patients in our office undergoing early intervention has hovered at a low 20 to 30% of our total patients. While many young patients think braces are fun, they are one more thing to brush around!
