At Alter & Meru Orthodontics our goal is to make a positive difference in the lives of each of the patients we treat, and individuals we associate with.

We seek out the most advanced methods of scientifically proven treatments, we artfully design beautiful smiles, we never cut corners, we treat all patients equally regardless of their age or beliefs, and we listen to our patients needs and desires in order to provide them with a smile that will light up their lives forever.

At Alter & Meru Orthodontics we seek to make the process of gaining a functional bite and aesthetically stunning smile as fun and enjoyable as possible. When an individual completes treatment with us, they may not be a patient anymore, but they will always part of our family.
