Dr. Marc Fruithandler

I’m Dr. Marc Fruithandler- you can call me Dr. Marc. I take great pride in the quality of the orthodontic treatment I provide. I have realized that good, carefully planned orthodontic treatment can do a lot more than just “line up” a person’s teeth. When done correctly by a professional who stands behind his or her work, orthodontic treatment can help people grow in confidence, increase chewing efficiency, protect the health of the gums and joints, and provide long-term stability for a healthy bite.
