“Orthodontics is a wonderful profession. It gives me unparalleled opportunities to change the lives of so many people. Patients receive a boost in their self-esteem and confidence when they see their new smile at the conclusion of orthodontic treatment. It also offers the opportunity to work alongside a great team of dedicated staff who strive to make our patients’ experience a positive one.” — Dr. Kehoe
Dr. Kehoe’s state-of-the-art facility, housed in a classic office building, is equipped with the most advanced technology available, including digital imaging and iTero® scanning that empower him to keep patients thoroughly educated about their orthodontic treatment progress. Having seen the benefits repeatedly, he is a passionate proponent of the many positive aspects of early interceptive treatment.
Dr. Kehoe is excited about the technological advances recently made in orthodontics, such as the use of TADs (temporary anchorage devices), laser procedures, imaging techniques, and iTero® scanning to improve the level of orthodontic care he delivers to his patients.
