If you’re getting ready for the holidays in Suwanee, then you know there will be many treats to tempt you during this holiday season, including the local peach cobbler. The busy pace of December makes it easy to forget that you can use the winter break to focus on your child’s oral health. We believe that every mouth with uneven or crooked teeth, crowding, or a misaligned bite can be fixed. It just starts with a thorough examination by our highly-trained orthodontist, Dr. Michael Gorlovsky. The Windermere Orthodontics team is standing by to develop a custom treatment plan for each new patient!

At Windermere Orthodontics, many of our patients participate in a variety of sports throughout the year. The fall season is a busy time for sports, with some students even participating in more than one sport.

With or without braces, dental protection is critical for contact sports. At Windermere Orthodontics, we can help make mouthguards an essential component of your safety!
