Tips For Choosing a Mission Viejo Orthodontist:

Tip #1: Choose a specialist. Don’t make the mistake of thinking that all dental providers are able to provide you with specialized dental care. In very few instances is this the case. If you’re currently seeking out a Mission Viejo orthodontist, we invite you to see why more locals rely on Family Tree Orthodontics for beautiful results.

Today’s orthodontic care is affordable- and there are numerous options available which are designed to meet the needs of patients, and their budgets. At Family Tree Orthodontics, we provide the options our patients are looking for, including braces for teens, children, and adults.

Tip #3: Don’t let misconceptions or myths get in the way of receiving treatment.

Request a free consultation at our facility to find out whether you or your loved one is a candidate for braces. After a thorough evaluation, our specialists will recommend a treatment plan that is right for your needs.

We accept most insurance plans and offer flexible payment plans that are geared toward your individual budget, so braces are affordable to you and not a burden to your finances.

Today’s options in braces include the virtually invisible Invisalign teeth straightening system that is extremely popular with the young crowd since they are almost impossible to perceive during day to day activities. We also offer lingual braces that are hidden behind the teeth. During your consultation, our staff will look at your x-rays and discuss all of the options that are available to you, pointing out their recommendations for a treatment plan they believe would best address your personal dental needs.

Since moving to Mission Viejo in 1976, Dr. Staples has been a figure in Mission Viejo both personally and professionally. With his wife, Durenda, they raised 3 children and experienced many years of community interaction and support. From Little League to club soccer, high school football and gymnastics, Dr. Staples has been an active parent in nearly all sporting organizations that are available in Mission Viejo. And now that his children are grown, Dr. Staples is committed to staying involved in the community by professionally sponsoring many local teams and schools. Dr. Staples has participated in other things such as the Elk’s Club, Charity Events, Food Drives and in-classroom dental education at many local elementary schools. Dr. Staples also spent many years as an active member of an a cappella singing group that performed at numerous churches, local civic events and social outreach programs.

Aside from his personal endeavors, Dr. Staples’ educational and professional background is substantial. A graduate of Whittier College, Loyola University School of Dentistry and the USC Orthodontic Department, Dr. Staples considers educational curiosity to be the hallmark of a professional’s life. He is a Diplomate of the American Board of Orthodontics, which is the highest level of professional achievement for diagnostic abilities and treatment skills. He is also a former clinical professor for the UCLA School of Dentistry’s Orthodontic Department and the inventor of an innovative orthodontic expansion device that is used in orthodontic offices worldwide. He reads every piece of dental and orthodontic literature that he can find, and continually takes advanced, specialized courses that involve the latest breakthroughs in the profession.

Over the years, Dr. Staples’ professional and personal involvement in Mission Viejo has brought smiles to many faces you see every day. With everything he has done, Dr. Staples has never veered from his initial dream to provide honest, exceptional orthodontic care to his community.

Since establishing himself as one of the first orthodontists in Mission Viejo, Dr. Staples has had a commitment to provide his patients with the highest quality of orthodontic treatment in a supportive, caring way. He uses the latest technology along with proven orthodontic solutions and recommends them based on his patients’ individual needs. High-tech orthodontic systems can be seen in his use of self-ligating brackets, like the Damon System, Invisalign treatment, temporary anchorage devices, digital orthodontic systems, and more.
