If you’ve had the chance to check out any of our earlier blogs from 2021, you might have already heard about our groundbreaking partnership with Vivos Therapeutics, the only relationship of its kind in Madison. What drove us to be a pioneer? Because working together with them and The Institute for Craniofacial Medicine, allows us to have the Vivos experts pair with our knowledgeable, compassionate dentist, Dr. Ashley Lee and the My Rivertown Dentist team to present you with a much more personalized, comprehensive treatment plan. We often hear from our parent patients that they often don’t know where to start in terms of taking care of their little one’s oral health issues or needs. 

Now, we make it easy. Start here, with us as we guide you through the foundation of building proper oral health that carries them and their smile all the way through adulthood. With our non-invasive treatment techniques for various dental dilemmas, there’s a chance we can even eliminate the need for more costly orthodontic therapy in the future.

Get to Know the DNA Appliance

One of the ways we can help facilitate your kiddo’s proper growth and development is to get them fitted with a DNA or Vivos appliance. It might sound a little intimidating, but this cool device is custom-fitted for comfort that relies on your body’s natural ability to self correct growing issues — NO SURGERY NECESSARY!

Isn’t nice to know there’s a solution for you or someone in your family that actually works, won’t burst your budget, and doesn’t require surgery or downtime? We think so too.
