Serenity Orthodontics

For our team, the art of orthodontics is about so much more than just metal brackets and silver wires. It’s about helping each patient achieve a healthier, stronger, and more confident smile that lasts for life! We can’t wait to welcome you or your child in for a comfortable, personalized care experience that goes the extra mile.

Specially Trained in Orthodontics

I’ve been helping North Georgia smiles flourish since 2012, and families can rest easy knowing that I have the advanced education needed to tackle even complex orthodontic cases. I don’t believe in mail-order solutions or “one size fits all” care. Instead, I work closely with each patient to understand their needs and develop entirely custom treatment plans that lead to stunning results!

Why Start Braces at Age 6–7?

The number one question we get is “when should my child first visit an orthodonist?” It might surprise you to hear that age 6 or 7 is the ideal time. Most associate orthodontic treatment with teenagers, but alignment problems, such as crossbite and other orthodontic issues, can be detected earlier in children. With Phase 1 Orthodontics, Dr. Podray can intervene early on, correcting developmental issues and shaping a healthier, more balanced smile from the get-go. Only 30% of children need Phase 1 Orthodontics, and we proudly offer parents complimentary evaluations to see if early treatment is needed. Screening and treating issues early on makes ongoing treatment simpler, more predictable, and can prevent extractions and more intense treatment in the future.
