Comprehensive care in a fun environment!
LaFerla Ortho is fun for the whole family! Dr. Michael R. LaFerla and his team love to see you smile and provide the most advanced and comfortable orthodontic treatment! Since 1999, we have been proud to serve the Joplin/Pittsburg area.
What makes LaFerla Ortho special?
Our doctor utilizes the highest quality of orthodontic materials to give you a smile that will last forever. We offer Invisalign® clear aligners and Damon® Smile self-ligating braces for children and adults! We use proven methods and techniques that will give you a beautiful smile and a comfortable orthodontic experience.
We have a really fun practice! From our games and movies in the reception room to our Patient Appreciation Party and contests, we’re always having a good time with our patients and families!
We truly care about our patients and are willing to go the extra mile to make sure you feel great about your care. Our team is even available 24/7 for emergencies.
Our doctor likes to see children between the ages of seven and nine years old to assess jaw growth and development as well as eruption. Sometimes, early intervention can improve orthodontic results and may decrease treatment time.
We love our patients and are very involved in our community. Our doctor and staff sponsor many local groups, charities, and fundraisers. We even travel to local schools to talk to kids about having healthy smiles! We also provide college scholarships to current and former patients through our annual Michael R. LaFerla Ortho Team Scholarship.
Contact our Joplin orthodontic office to schedule your complimentary evaluation. We’ll perform a simple oral exam to determine which orthodontic treatment is best for you. We’ll chat with you about the process and answer any questions you or your child may have. Give us a call today!
