Your First Visit

Meeting you for the first time is one of the biggest steps in finding you a brand new smile. During your first visit, you’ll meet the team and see the office before sitting down for your free consultation. During this appointment, we’ll give you a comprehensive exam before discussing your smile goals and the best options for your specific needs. We want to spend this time getting to know you and your smile while helping you feel comfortable and confident about the steps ahead! (Warning: you won’t believe how pumped we are to meet your smile!)

Affordable Treatment

We don’t let finances get in the way of straightening teeth. Our goal is to help every patient afford treatment through insurance and affordable payment options. Discover financing that’s designed to maximize your benefits and lower your costs.

Let’s Talk Budget

Financing shouldn’t get in the way of correcting teeth. Everyone’s treatment plan is a little bit different – and so is their budget. We’re here to help you start your orthodontic journey with payment plan options that fit your unique needs and treatment. We’ll talk with you about your options from day one so that you never have to worry about investing in your smile.

Insurance Coverage

We work with nearly all insurance plans to help get you covered when it comes to cost. Our office will be happy to help you with any paperwork or claims, and we’re always here to answer any questions you may have about the process. Talk with us about how to get the most out of your benefits!

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.
