Traditional Braces

Traditional braces tackle tooth troubles using metal brackets, bands, and archwire to straighten teeth. Cost-effective and comfortable, today’s metal braces have lighter wires and brackets for an experience that’s way more awesome (and way less awkward). Plus, you can keep it low-profile or be a trendsetter with tons of band options!

Clear Braces

Want a less noticeable look? Clear ceramic braces are perfect for you. Made with clear materials and tooth-colored ceramic, adults and teens can get all the benefits of braces while blending in! With the same treatment time as traditional braces, these braces provide great comfort while letting you smile with confidence from start to finish.

Dr Patel is both a colleague and was my orthodontist. As a fellow dentist, who has worked with him for many years, I can substantiate his integrity and outstanding work. As his Invisalign patient, I can say that he was very professional and a perfectionist. Even though I had braces as a child, I had to do some refinement of some crowding of my front teeth. I am a dentist after all. If you need braces, don’t waste your time anywhere else.


Seriously blown away by this place!!!! We recently moved from MN to NC and my son’s braces journey wasn’t finished by the time we moved. We started researching orthodontists months before our move so we could get an appt while we were getting settled. I’m very type A so I researched and researched and Tooth by Tooth was top of our list. I sent a few emails to our top orthodontics and the ONLY one I got an email back was from Dr. Patel. We arrived to his office, which is new and gorgeous BTW, and he was so nice. He gave us a tour, and let us know what my son still has left in his journey. It was nice to have one less thing to stress about during our crazy adjustment! I would HIGHLY recommend this place. I wouldn’t even waste your time researching others!!!!


As a prior patient, I highly recommend Dr. Patel for orthodontic treatment. Not only did he do a great job, but he was a consummate professional and treated me so well throughout the process, answering any questions or addressing issues I had in a timely manner. I've seen him interact with other patients and staff and he is consistent: he treats everyone with respect and is honest. His ability to relate with everyone, whether it's children or adults, is a quality trait that elevates him from his colleagues.


I can’t say enough about my and my sons’ orthodontic experiences with Dr. Patel. If you are looking for quality treatment by an orthodontist that listens to your concerns then you have found your place. From the beginning, Dr. Patel explained in great detail what treatment we needed and how it was going to happen. My one son and I both even finished a little earlier than we thought we would. Every visit he explained what we were going to do. He was on-time, painless, thorough, and professional. My teenage boys always had positive things to say and often came out of their appointments laughing. He made the orthodontic process fun all the way through. Seriously go see Dr. Patel you will not be disappointed!


A hidden gem that you don’t want to miss! My daughter and I had such a great experience with Dr. Patel and his team. From my first conversation with Beverly to taking my daughter in for her consultation. She went in feeling nervous about braces and walked out excited to return and start her treatment! Dr. Patel and Beverly are both extremely personable and caring. This is the kind of patient experience that sets the bar so high you can’t accept anything else.
