Roger Elton, DDS MSD
“I became interested in the field of orthodontics because it allows me to give my patients smiles that best complement their facial aesthetics. This can do more than make you look good; it can make you happy, more confident, and improve your life in ways you never thought possible. I’ve worked hard to make orthodontic care a comfortable, rewarding experience for the thousands of patients whose smiles I’ve enhanced. I do this by offering the latest advances in orthodontics, along with the friendly, highly personalized care that you deserve. Not only will I treat you and your family’s smiles with skill and a soft touch, I will make sure your visits are a fun and positive experience.
“As your orthodontist, I’ve made sure that I have the educational background and up-to-date training to give you the best care possible. I maintain membership in professional organizations and have completed many hours of continuing education.” — Dr. Elton
