Starting Your New Smile

At Gardner Orthodontics, in Orange Park, we believe that your first orthodontic visit is the most important one.

Don’t hesitate to reach out to us with any questions you may have about our accepted health insurance providers and our payment options. Our expert team is knowledgeable and would love to help you!

Easy and Painless

The first visit to a doctor’s office can sometimes seem intimidating, especially for kids. But, your first visit to Gardner Orthodontics will be completely painless.

At your first free consultation, you’ll be welcomed by our team, introduced to expert orthodontist Dr. Thomas Gardner, and shown around our office.

Our highly-trained, orthodontic treatment coordinator will then take some digital photographs of your teeth. These images are the best way for us to see your teeth, jaws, and facial soft tissue.

Your Custom Treatment Plan

Here at Gardner Orthodontics, we specialize in personalized care. Our services in orthodontics aim to help you achieve the straight and beautiful smile you are looking for, from tooth whitening to metal braces and clear aligners.

After reviewing your records, Dr. Gardner will join you in a private consultation room to discuss your individualized and unique treatment plan.

Dr. Gardner will point out specific areas of concern and show you what kind of corrections you can expect by showing photos and videos of similar cases.

Dr. Gardner will take as much time as you need to answer your questions and work with you to develop a treatment plan that works best for you and your needs. Dr. Gardner and his assistant will then walk you through the process.

They’ll explain everything—from scheduling to expected discomfort levels, to finances and payment options.

Start Your Treatment the Same Day

The orthodontic treatment process involves a series of orthodontic visits. We value the relationship that we’ll build with you and your family throughout that process and want you to be confident that you’re receiving the best orthodontic care possible.

Once you feel like we've answered all of your questions and concerns, you can start your treatment that same day. We value your time, and we know you want to make the most of your visit.
