At OrthoGrace Dental, we are pleased to offer orthodontic options for family members of all ages that comfortably and efficiently help you achieve a straighter smile. After dental school, Dr. Joe Medellin studied orthodontics for an additional three years, so you can trust that he has the skill and experience to deliver the healthy, beautiful results you desire
