At Embrace Orthodontics, we have one goal:

to provide the best orthodontic care in a
relaxed and friendly environment.

Our state of the art office, friendly staff, and commitment to high standards combine to give our patients
the very best care available.

Dr. Pruzansky and her team fully realize what an important health decision orthodontic care can be. With this in mind, upon arriving for your first visit, you will be met by our treatment coordinator. She will help to familiarize you with our office and its procedures and answer any initial inquiries you may have about orthodontics. Dr. Pruzansky will proceed with a complete and thorough exam and diagnosis. She will then carefully discuss your treatment choices and make sure questions are answered, and the timing of treatment is just right for you. You will find that our professional staff will provide you with the attention you deserve along with a personalized experience to meet your unique treatment needs.
