More than Just a Smile
Patient & Parent Testimonials
As soon as you set an appointment to come to our office, you will notice that the team at The Smile Patio Orthodontics is committed to meeting and exceeding your needs in orthodontic treatment.
You get to choose the orthodontic appliance for your treatment, and we'll review your current health status to treat your case with the individual attention it deserves. Make sure to review if traditional metal braces, clear ceramic braces, or Invisalign clear aligners are the best options for your case when you come to your first appointment.
We want to make sure you get the best possible experience.
Dr. Albaugh is a board-certified orthodontist who has worked as a general dentist with over 12 years of training (four years of college, four years of dental school, one year of the Lutheran Medical Center AEGD program, and three years of orthodontics residency).
When you come to us for treatment, you'll get help from a seasoned specialist who focuses on your specific needs instead.
Orthodontic Treatment That Is Comfortable
Today's orthodontic devices have evolved beyond bulky and cumbersome designs. Modern stainless steel braces are now more comfortable, streamlined, and effective.
Utilizing technology developed by NASA, our NiTi wires offer consistent, gentle pressure to guide your teeth gradually and precisely into their ideal position.
At The Smile Patio Orthodontics, we prioritize your comfort in every step of your teeth straightening journey.
Dr. Albaugh and the team are dedicated to providing cost-effective orthodontic solutions for our patients in Vista. We will carefully examine your insurance coverage and determine a monthly payment plan that eases the financial aspect of improving your smile, minimizing concerns about treatment expenses.
Additionally, we offer a discount for patients who opt to pay the full amount upfront.
Innovative Orthodontic Approaches
We rely on cutting-edge technology to deliver the best treatment options. Here you will get all the wonders of modern orthodontic tools that prioritize your comfort without sacrificing efficiency.
We use a technique called Smile Arc Protection to go beyond simply correcting your bite to create a wide, beautiful smile that preserves the natural curvature of your mouth.
Located in the center of Vista, CA, our office is conveniently located just minutes away from your home, workplace, or school, ensuring you have easy access to the finest orthodontic care available.
A Message to You
Here at The Smile Patio, we know that seeking orthodontic treatment can be daunting, and we also know that there's more to your expectations than a quick fix for crowded teeth or a case of diastema.
In truth, orthodontics is about investing in our well-being, improving self-esteem, and making oral care much more efficient.
Dr. Albaugh is committed to helping his patients achieve a smile that makes them proud without having to worry about how finances can get in the way of their dream smile, which is why we are more than happy to be flexible regarding treatment financing options.
Everyone who comes to our orthodontic office will find a team that stands with them rather than on their way. And so, we strive to develop solutions that adjust to each of our patients' unique orthodontic needs; together, we'll reach the goal of a smile you can love, one that remains with you through graduations, weddings, promotions, anniversaries, and special occasions.
We promise the process is worth it, as we'll do our best to take excellent care of you and your family.
Thank you for trusting us with your smile!
