Finding an Orthodontist that Aligns with Your Family’s Needs
I had braces for two and a half years. And while it felt like an eternity as a teen, I only have distant memories of the brackets and wires that straightened my teeth. The part I won’t forget, however, is my orthodontist: he had nicknames for all of his patients and told terrible dad jokes.
While I didn’t appreciate braces at the time, I am so grateful as an adult for my smile.
My kids often ask if they will have braces someday. My answer is always the same: “probably,” followed by “but it will be easy.” I can say this confidently because I know we will choose the right orthodontist for our family too. And while I can’t guarantee corny jokes, I know he or she will make my kids comfortable.

Voted Top Orthodontist
Dr. S. Jay Bowman at Kalamazoo Orthodontics
My son was initially nervous about his first visit to the orthodontist. The doctor and staff were exceptionally friendly, answered all of our questions, and made him feel at ease the entire time. The kids club even has him excited about future visits.

Everything about this office is welcoming, especially the staff and Dr. Kwong himself. I never leave without a smile and now my smile is twice as big as before! As a teenage girl who has been through a dental roller coaster ride at previous locations, I would definitely recommend this place to anyone.
