Early Start Orthodontics Giving your little ones the same care we'd give our own children.
Setting Your Child Up for Success
"Every child should see an orthodontist by the age of seven" - AAO
Early intervention equals the best prevention! The American Association of Orthodontists recommends that your child makes their first visit to our office for a check-up by age seven. At this time, your child’s teeth and jaw are still growing, making it easier for Dr. Jovan to identify any issues that could potentially affect your child’s jaw growth.
When your child visits our office, we immediately focus on making their appointment a fun and enjoyable time for them. We get down on their level without forgetting to educate you, as a parent, about their oral health.
No matter what your kiddo needs, you can trust our experienced team to safeguard your child’s teeth and make them smile through the process.
Dr. Jovan has become known as the leading orthodontist in Round Rock to treat children in the early stages of growth and development. Having treated thousands of children over the last decade, Dr. Jovan has seen many success stories of catching tooth crowding and jaw growth issues early on.
She has also witnessed many sad stories when patients come to see her too late in life, and they have already had irreversible damage. Dr. Jovan would prefer to do minor necessary things early in life for her children and yours to avoid unnecessary tooth loss, or worse, in the future.
