Options To Fit Everyone

When you’re ready to explore the myriad of options available in orthodontics, choosing a specialist is the first step. Choosing a specialist committed to offering the most patient-friendly options available is an important second step. That’s why so many Hampton Roads residents choose Orthodontist Dr. Curtis Dailey of Dailey Orthodontics. No matter your age, we have options that can be custom fit not only to your teeth – but to your life.

We’re also committed to making the very best treatment affordable so you never need to compromise between quality and affordability. Dailey Orthodontics has a number of flexible payment options including interest-free financing with affordable monthly payments. We will also work with you to maximize any insurance benefits you have.

treatment for kids

Early-Interceptive Treatment

We encourage parents to bring their child for an initial exam at age 7. In some cases, Dr. Dailey will recommend early, interceptive treatment. With early treatment we can take the least invasive approach to everything - from making room for adult teeth to advancing and/or expanding your child's jaw. Addressing these things early helps us avoid more invasive approaches in the future. However many children don't need early treatment. That's why we've created our Growth & Guidance program just for kids. If your child is in this program, that means they aren’t yet ready for treatment but we’re monitoring them until the time is right. These very important growth and development appointments will be scheduled every 6 to 12 months and won’t cost you a thing. But they allow us to choose the optimum time for treatment to so that treatment takes the least amount of time and is most cost effective.

Adolescent Treatment

Between the ages of 11 and 15 is the most common time for orthodontic treatment, and for good reasons. By 12, most, if not all, of the permanent teeth are in place, and crooked teeth, gaps and bad bites are highly visible. We can often take advantage of the remaining growth to make the necessary orthodontic corrections to create an exceptional smile for your child.

Since many of their friends are in braces at the same time, most adolescents LOVE being part of the braces crowd. After school visits at Dailey Orthodontics can be lots of fun when kids see their friends from school, church or sports teams!

Teen & Adult Treatment

At Dailey Orthodontics the options for teens and adults include Invisalign - for straight teeth without braces, Insignia - for customized treatment with braces, Damon braces - for treatment without tightening and, of course, both metal and clear braces. So whether you want to show the world you’re in treatment or you’d prefer to be more discreet, we have both the technology and the experience to make it happen.

Our treatment options are faster than the traditional approach still used by many orthodontists. Plus, they’re more comfortable and require less frequent visits to our office so you can enjoy your time in treatment almost as much as you’ll enjoy having your beautiful new smile.

Dr. Curtis is committed to using the latest technological advances in orthodontics to make the patient experience better. Every patient that chooses braces also receives:

  • precision bracket placement to make tooth movement more efficient
  • thermal wires that move teeth using the natural heat of your body
  • a sealant to protect the teeth from decalcification during treatment


Dailey Orthodontics

A No Headgear Zone

Unlike most other treatment tools in used in orthodontics today, the Xbow® was developed in this new millennium. In addition to the aesthetic considerations of upper and lower teeth that don't fit together correctly, a bite that does not fit together correctly can lead to abnormal wear of the teeth or risk of fracture. Without the headgear used by many orthodontists, Dr. Dailey can get a healthy bite and a beautiful smile in less time than average orthodontic treatment takes.
