A Family Practice for Ohio Families
Founded by our two brother doctors, Hutta & Hutta Orthodontics has always been a family operation. We consider each patient who walks through our office doors to be a member of our smile family.
For us, commitment to kids’ dental health and care is synonymous with commitment to their overall wellbeing. That’s why we make sure our Columbus office feels like home and our orthodontists and staff feel like family. We want you and your child to look forward to coming to our office and to enjoy every moment you spend with our doctors and staff. You’re not just a patient here—you’re a member of our family.
Signs Your Child Should See an Orthodontist
Did you know that the ideal time for children to begin treatment is when they are 7 years old? And, if your child starts showing signs of problems or if your family’s pediatric dentist notices issues, we recommend visiting our office even earlier.
Signs children need to see the orthodontist include:
Losing baby teeth early or late
Overcrowded, blocked, or misaligned teeth
Jaw popping or other sounds
Gaps in teeth
Dentistry and orthodontic care are crucial aspects of your child’s health and development. We want to ensure that the treatment your child needs works for you and your family financially. To this end, our practice accepts most major credit cards and insurance plans, and we have dedicated staff members ready to assist you with filing claims and addressing any questions. We also offer affordable financing and payment plans.
Treatment Program Options at Our Office
Pediatric Dental Check-Ups
It is possible for children to get perfect smiles without any brackets or wires—without anyone ever knowing they’ve been in our office! Invisalign uses a series of invisible, removable, and comfortable aligners to get each tooth into its perfect position and to give your child a radiant smile. We are pleased to offer Teen Invisalign at our office. No need to eliminate foods, worry about prom or homecoming photos, or undergo any uncomfortable tightening.
Why invest in orthodontics for your kid?
A lifetime of smiles starts now
Your dentist will thank you for getting care early and going through our treatment program. Why? An aligned smile isn’t only a confident smile—it’s also easier to clean! In addition to giving children the boost a beautiful grin can provide, improving smiles for children also means less likelihood of cavities and other issues at the dentist as adults.
Other Benefits of Early Dental Treatment
Straightening smiles is only one of the many benefits of investing in early care. Our care for children can also address other pediatric dental issues like misaligned teeth, bites, and jaws, as well as problems with speech.
At Hutta & Hutta, dentistry is not only our occupation and your child is not simply a patient—pediatric dentistry is our passion and every young patient is part of our family.
We Look Forward to Seeing You
At Hutta & Hutta Orthodontics, you’re more than a patient—you’re a part of our family, and we can’t wait to help you achieve the healthy, beautiful smile you’ve always dreamed of. Reach out today to schedule your complimentary consultation.
