Richard Grant DDS, MS

What sets us apart

Our Philosophy

At Braces By Grant, we believe in creating smiles while developing friendships with our patients and their families. We’re a patient-focused practice, which means you and your smile are our highest priority ... always. Dr. Richard Grant and each member of our 

team will move mountains to ensure that every step of your orthodontic treatment is a positive experience — one that will leave you smiling.

Our Practice Environment

When you walk into our office, you’ll be greeted warmly and by name. Our reception area is comfortable and inviting, with current magazines for our adult patients and parents of our children and teen patients. We also offer video games, and there are TVs mounted chairside in the treatment areas. Free Wi-Fi is available throughout the office.

You’ll hear a lot of laughter and see many smiles in our office, from our patients and our staff. This is a happy place to visit, and many of our patients arrive filled with excitement to share the latest news about what’s happened in school or on the sports field. Our team is composed of people who really like what we do. That enthusiasm shows and our patients respond in kind.

Our Approach to Orthodontics

Dr. Grant believes in using the two-phase treatment approach when it comes to developing straight teeth and great oral health. With two-phase treatment, Phase 1 is implemented at a younger age, when the patient’s mouth structure is still growing, and Phase 2 begins when all permanent teeth are in place. The advantage of two-phase orthodontic treatment is that it begins to correct issues before they become major problems, and leads to a more comfortable treatment process, shorter treatment time, and more stable, natural results.
