Achieving healthy, beautiful smiles!


When teeth are crooked, it is not pretty. Orthodontics can change all that. Achieving healthy, beautiful smiles is a team effort that involves the family dentist, the orthodontist, the patient and the parents, and in some cases other dental specialists. The American Association of Orthodontists (AAO) recommends a child be seen by an orthodontist at age seven. There are many reasons for this. Most importantly, young children can greatly benefit from early detection of bite problems. With early detection, the orthodontist can help guide tooth and jaw development as a child grows, thus preventing more serious problems later on. These problems can be caused from early or late loss of teeth, blocked out teeth, jaws that are too far forward or back, protruding teeth and thumb-sucking. Failure to correct these problems early in life can lead to a lifetime of dissatisfaction with your smile. That is why more adults are turning to orthodontic treatment to achieve the healthy beautiful smile they have always dreamed of.


Patients at any age can benefit from orthodontic care.  I invite you to come see us at Campbell Orthodontics for a complimentary orthodontic examination, and to discuss your concerns for your child, yourself or any patient regardless of age. It is never too late to improve your oral health by having the smile that you deserve.


I truly enjoy working with Dr. Dilger and his staff to obtain the highest standard of care for the healthy and beautiful smile that you deserve.

Dear Dr. Dilger:


It all started with my initial phone call to Dr. Dilger's office. I felt so comfortable from the start and after I came in for my first visit it's been all about what I want and what Dr. Dilger and his staff recommends for me. All around, it's been the best dental experience I've ever had.

Going to the dentist used to be a nightmare experience for me. That's all changed when I came to Dr. Dilger. Dr. Dilger's office staff are so warm and welcoming. Visiting them is like going home. Dr. Dilger's calm and caring manner erased all my dental anxiety and for the first time in my life I found myself relaxed in a dental chair. Dr. Dilger and his staff really took the time to get to know me and my concerns. They talked with me about my fears and helped me address my anxiety. Now I visit the dentist and I'm not afraid. I can not express the difference Dr. Dilger has made in my dental life! Thanks so much Dr. D.

I love my new smile.  It was so easy too.  Nearly pain free.  I am considering my lower teeth at a later date.
