Karau Orthodontics

Improving your smile and profile

one appointment at a time

Making your smile naturally beautiful.


I offer state of the art personalized care with an emphasis on lasting functional and aesthetic correction. Special attention is devoted to achieving a balanced profile in conjunction with Temporomandibular Joint (TMJ) balance. It is especially important to formulate a unique treatment plan for each patient rather than a technician oriented approach which tends to result in an artificial rather than a natural smile and profile. To accomplish these objectives all treatment adjustments are done by the orthodontist rather than by technicians. We are in effect a boutique practice giving the orthodontist more time with the individual patient.
