At Orthogroup Opdebeeck & Preda Orthodontics, we work together towards achieving beautiful teeth. We'll discuss your wishes and choose a treatment plan that makes us both feel comfortable.
We are committed to offering quality & future-oriented care. Thanks to images & digital treatment plans, we can envision the result before we even start. That way, you'll know what to expect during the entire process.
In addition to the classic braces, you can contact us for treatment with 3D-printed devices. We print these devices in-house in the OSC, our digital lab.
