Are you preoccupied with the appearance of your teeth? Do you hold your hand over your mouth when you laugh or smile? Regardless of what others may think of the things that bother you, your teeth are important to your self-image. Maybe what troubles you is a gap, right in the middle of an otherwise attractive smile, or perhaps you have a tooth that juts out at an awkward and embarrassing angle. This is not uncommon and is easily corrected with braces. Even simple fixes can bring benefits that last a lifetime! With his years of experience, Dr. Jo will expertly design the right treatment to meet your needs.


Dr. Jo has over thirty years of experience. Clients who our practice treated as children are now returning to have their own children treated by Dr. Jo. Such is the level of care that our patients receive – memories of the support and encouragement received as adolescents coupled with the lasting rewards of a beautiful smile make people seek out Dr. Jo decades later! 



Dr. Jo’s staff is here to help, support, and educate you along your journey! His employees are long term, well-trained, and dedicated professionals. Unlike some dental offices, you won’t see a different person every time you come in; you will be treated by the same friendly faces each visit! In this office, we are like family, and we get to know and love our patients on a personal level.
