What sets us apart?


Our doctors utilize 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.

Customer Service

We have a really fun practice! From our games and movies in the reception room to our Patient Appreciation Party and contests, we always have 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.

The doctors like 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 reduce treatment time.

Community Service

We love our patients and are very involved in our community. Our doctors and team sponsor many local groups, charities, and fundraisers. We even travel to local schools to talk to kids about having healthy smiles! We provide college scholarships to current and former patients through our annual LaFerla Wilson Ortho Team Scholarships.

Contact our Joplin orthodontic office or Pittsburg orthodontic office to schedule your complimentary evaluation. We’ll perform a thorough 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 at 417-206-7770!
