We had some minor updates over the last few weeks, but we've finally added information about our braces and appliances to the Treatment and Services section. As promised, Dr. Griffies has been working on more treatment examples. You can see those on the early and adolescent treatment pages.
Upon completion of his undergraduate education at the University of Notre Dame, Dr. Griffies went on to earn his professional education from the Baylor College of Dentistry. He received his certificate in orthodontics from the U.S. Army Orthodontic Training Program at Fort Meade and practiced dentistry and orthodontics in the Army for over 22 years. In addition, he served as the orthodontic instructor for three Army Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery training programs and the Fort Bragg General Dentistry training program. In July 2005, Dr. Griffies retired as the Orthodontic Consultant to the Army Surgeon General.
We believe that financial obstacles should never stand in the way of quality orthodontic treatment! We provide our patients with a variety of payment options to suit their unique financial needs. For your convenience we accept cash payments, Visa, MasterCard, Discover, or are happy to assist you in enrolling for OrthoBanc financing. We are a preferred provider for MetLife, Delta Dental, and United Concordia, and our courteous staff will be happy to file your insurance claims for you.
At Straighten-Up Orthodontics we are family practice and very proud of that fact. Everyone that works with us was a patient, a patient's parent or a friend of the family. For example, Dr. Griffies' wife, Janice is the office manager, his daughter, Brandy, works here as well. Then there is Bill, our lab tech. Dr. Griffies treated all three of his sons, then he came to work for us, followed by his son, and former patient, Alex, followed then by his wife, Deb. Madaline's son, Gunnar was a patient before she joined us. Kylle was a patient before he came aboard. Of course, Kylle's mom, Lisa, works with us as well. We bring on team members that have great personalities and great hearts. Of course, our team is highly trained and efficient, but really, best of all is that they are a blast. We enjoy being a little on the wacky side and hope that you will want to join us (only if you're a little wacky yourself). Please get acquainted with our most fabulous team!
