Welcome to Blackwood Orthodontics
At Blackwood Orthodontics, our priority is to deliver quality care to informed patients in a comfortable and convenient setting.
When you have tooth and jaw alignment problems, you need to turn to an orthodontist who listens and responds, an experienced doctor who knows the field, a doctor that can effectively diagnose and treat your needs, and a friendly physician who counsels you on the best ways to maintain and improve your health. Our staff meets all these criteria. Plus, you benefit from a dedicated team of trained professionals who give you the individualized attention you deserve.
Blackwood Orthodontics believes that informed patients are better prepared to make decisions regarding their health and well-being. That is why we've included an extensive section on this website covering the full array of topics associated with orthodontics and orthodontic diagnoses and treatments. We encourage you to look through these pages whenever you have an interest or concern about your orthodontic needs and care.
