Welcome to Gorton & Schmohl Orthodontics, we’re so glad you stopped by! If your child’s dentist recently recommended they see an orthodontist, or you independently have some concerns regarding your child’s smile, you’ve come to the right place. We’re committed to providing the best possible care and service to our Kentfield patients to ensure they are confident and healthy.
At Gorton and Schmohl, we specialize in pediatric orthodontics and our treatment philosophy is simple: the most natural way of treatment is often the best option for our patients. We strongly believe that keeping all the permanent teeth is important to achieve a healthy and balanced smile and facial structure in the long term and, for this reason, our approach to orthodontics is to minimize the extraction of teeth. When indicated, we work to modify a child’s growth pattern while they are still young to minimize the need for surgery or more invasive treatment later.
Our practice is unique in that our extensive experience with progressive treatment options can minimize the need for surgery, reduce exposure to allergens/radiation, and achieve excellent results in a shorter amount of time. We take pride in the health and confidence our services provide for our patients. You can find out more information about our treatment options on our website at www.marinortho.com.
