about our orthodontic office
It is always our goal at Amy Richter Orthodontics to offer our patients the very best orthodontic care in and the surrounding communities. We take pride in staying up-to-date with all modern orthodontic advancements, as well as continually working to further our education. Offering patients the most modern and effective solutions to their orthodontic needs is our goal.

We are proud to offer several different treatments and technologies for you to achieve a straight, flawless smile in a way that works for you. We will go over all of your options in order to help you make the best decision for you and your desired results. We also know how scary and anxiety-provoking it can be to have dental work done. Since most patients are uneasy about visiting, our staff makes sure to provide every patient with a kind and caring attitude. We are here to discuss any of your concerns, and we do our best to tailor every treatment to your needs, wants, and desired outcome.

We are here to answer any and all questions you may have, no matter how silly or simple you think they are. Orthodontia is not an easy practice to understand! For more information or to schedule an appointment, contact us today at (716) 631-9924.
