Meet Dr. Baird & Dr. Moon

Being an orthodontist is about putting individual patient’s interests at the forefront.

Rather than making decisions for patients, we walk each patient through their condition and treatment options. After thoroughly answering their questions, each of our patients has the knowledge needed to make an informed decision about their or their child's orthodontic treatment.

Our goal for each of my patients is health and function first, and a confident, beautiful smile along the way.
