Dental health is vital to not only your personal wellness, but your overall well-being. For something so important, your experience should be one you look forward to and anticipate. You deserve a practice that exists in a category apart from all the rest—a “category of one.” Dr. Balakrishnan has created a patient-centric approach to orthodontic treatment that puts you or your child first, always.
