7&Up - Orthodontic Checkup

The American Association recommends that children get their first orthodontic check up no later than age 7.


At Fishbein Orthodontics, we provide a free early evaluation, to give your child the best opportunity for a healthy and beautiful smile.

Detecting orthodontic problems at this age does not always mean that orthodontic treatment should be initiated.  Dr. Fishbein and Dr. Howle will evaluate your child to discuss whether early intervention would be beneficial at this time. Our doctors take a very conservative approach with younger children, and will only initiate treatment if there is a clear benefit.

To schedule your child’s first orthodontic checkup, call Fishbein Orthodontics at (850)-477-1089.
