Dr. Talbot is dedicated to providing personalized care in order to ensure that you and/or your child receive the best possible care.

Dr. Talbot will personally see every patient at every appointment. In addition, our flexible schedule allows us to accommodate our patients’ and parents’ busy lives.
Conservative Treatment Philosophy
Dr. Talbot has a conservative approach to orthodontics. He likes to create space rather than extract teeth whenever possible. Early intervention is only performed when it is clearly beneficial. His philosophy is to treat every patient as if he or she were the doctor’s own child.
Modern Treatment Methods
Dr. Talbot uses the most modern methods and appliances available. In many cases, he uses appliances that take patient compliance out of the picture: appliances that are cemented in the mouth and require no effort on the part of the patient to remember to wear them. This means faster and more effective treatment as well as happier patients and parents.

Dr. Talbot’s warm and professional staff make our patients feel at home, which makes it easier for our patients to relax and enjoy their visits. Patient photographs and digital images are analyzed with state-of-the-art computer software. This helps Dr. Talbot develop the best treatment plan for each patient.
