What Sets Us Apart

Dr. Held is a Specialist

After graduating from dental school, Dr. Held completed 30 months of advanced training at St. Louis University's Dreiling-Marshall Center for Advanced Dental Education, earning a Master of Science degree in orthodontics. Her practice is limited to orthodontics, which means that she focuses specifically on orthodontics every day that she practices.

The Doctor is the Expert

Dr. Held will personally diagnose your case, will create a treatment plan for you, and will see you at every adjustment visit until your new smile has been achieved. She also personally places all of the brackets on the teeth because ideal bracket placement is a crucial step in creating your beautiful, healthy smile!

We treat everyone with dignity, respect, and appreciation. Our purpose is not only to straighten teeth, but also to improve lives through a lifetime of beautiful smiles.

Dr. Held’s practice vision includes having a classy, safe, and fun practice. From the interior decoration, to the computer check-in, to the iPads for games, to the memory foam chairs, to the cleanliness, to the educational aids, to the bulletin board & communication board, to the website, to the privacy compliance, and to the celebratory spirit, you will experience The WingHaven® Orthodontics Difference.

5-Star Service

We are known for the incredible level of service that we provide, and for the fabulous results that we are able to achieve. We are not a high-volume practice. Dr. Held and her Team personally know each patient. When you become our patient, we consider you to be part of the family. Our goal is to offer you truly exceptional orthodontic service.

In that light, we will go the extra mile to work with your general dentist and any other dental specialists (when necessary), to provide you with the full Dental Team care.

Orthodontics is a journey, and it is more enjoyable to go on a journey with friendly people. Throughout every step of your journey with us, we will do everything possible to make your orthodontic treatment fun, efficient, effective, and safe. We hope to be the best part of your day each time that you visit us. We want you to have an incredible experience while gaining the best possible smile and function. And, we want you to feel comfortable recommending us to your friends.

Treatment Options Thoroughly Explained

Dr. Held and her Team take time at every patient consultation appointment to perform a clinical examination, to explain the treatment options and cost, and to answer all of your questions.

Individual Attention

Dr. Held sees her patients at every adjustment appointment.

Consistent Communication

Dr. Held and our Team will maintain consistent communication with you. During each visit, under the direct guidance of Dr. Held, our Team will communicate treatment progress, special instructions, and any concerns to the patient or parent.

Hygiene Education

To reinforce its importance, we review hygiene at every appointment, educate in a positive manner, and encourage excellent cleaning to prevent scarring, cavities, and gum disease.

Expertise in Orthodontic Technology

The current world of orthodontics is very exciting with new state-of-the-art technologies being developed at a rapid pace. Dr. Held and our Team endeavor to stay at the forefront of what is available and proven in orthodontics. We see patients of all ages and offer a variety of treatment options, depending upon the needs of those patients. We are highly trained in the latest orthodontic technology, including self-activating expanders, the Physiodynamic® System, and Invisalign®.

Expertise in Early Treatment

Dr. Held is an expert in Early Treatment as a means of addressing current problems early and preventing larger problems later. Please see our webpage on Two-Phase Treatment for details.

Flexible Financing

Flexible payment arrangements are available. We work with your budget and offer custom, affordable, in-house financing with no interest. To help you to maximize your insurance benefits, we will handle all of the insurance details, including billing your insurance company for you. This assistance is complimentary.

Exceptional Cleanliness

We strictly adhere to OSHA and CDC Guidelines. Our sterilization protocols are the best in the business. In fact, our office was professionally endorsed as an illustration of exemplary sterilization for an orthodontic office by an internationally recognized sterilization expert.

We have a state-of-the-art sterilization bay. We use a cassette system, with instruments residing within the cassettes and packaged to a surgical level. Additionally, we use two separate safety methods to ensure that proper sterilization of all instruments has been achieved. For your protection, all instruments used are either sterilized at a hospital grade level, or disposable. To avoid possibility of cross-contamination, our clinic carts are wiped down fully between every patient, every time.

To avoid contamination of instruments, we only unwrap cassettes once patients are seated. Additionally, we do not have any gluteraldehyde (i.e. "cold sterile solution") on the premises, as that chemical is caustic and has been shown to be not as consistently effective at sterilizing instruments as the methods that we use. Rest assured that we are doing everything possible to make sure that you are safe.

Privacy of Personal Information

Our office goes above and beyond to protect all of your sensitive information. We take HIPAA compliance extremely seriously and follow HIPAA Mandates to the highest level. You will experience an example of our care of your privacy when you check in, as our computer system will only publicly show the first 3 letters of your last name, and the first letter of your first name, for your security.

We will do everything possible to provide you with “Superior Service and Spectacular Smiles!”
