Top 10 Reasons to Choose Us

Why choose Dr. Pulver as your Houston, TX orthodontist?

Are you searching for a new orthodonist, either for yourself or your child? Dr. Pulver, recognized as one of the best orthodontists in Houston, works to give all of his patients the most effective and efficient treatment.

To learn more about Dr. Pulver, read our 10 reasons to choose our office below:

1. Dr. Pulver is a Board Certified Orthodontist.

Orthodontics is one of the nine specialties recognized by the American Dental Association. To become an orthodontist, Dr. Pulver received an additional 3 years of specialized education beyond dental school to learn to create beautiful, healthy, and lasting smiles. Dr. Pulver practices orthodontics exclusively and has completed the requirements to become a Board Certified Orthodontist by the American Board of Orthodontics (only 1 in 3 orthodontists are Board Certified). 

2. The dental community chooses us.

Who better to judge us than our peers? We proudly treat many staff members and families of dentists in and around the Houston area.

3. Patient safety is our priority.

Dr. Pulver and his friendly team follow all CDC and ADA guidelines to ensure the safety of all of their patients. Our office uses only digital x-rays, which have been shown to drastically reduce radiation exposure to patients compared to conventional x-rays.

4. The first visit is complimentary. 

We strongly believe in the positive impact that orthodontics can have on people of all ages. We believe it so much that we offer free examinations for new patients so that you and your family can get the expert advice about treatment needs, treatment options and the timing of treatment before making this important investment.

5. Dr. Pulver has a recall system for young kids. 

Children should be evaluated at approximately 7 years old to determine if early treatment is necessary. There are some things like crossbites and underbites which should be addressed early, and others which are better treated in adolescence. If treatment is prescribed for a later time, your child will be periodically evaluated in an orthodontic guidance program where we will evaluate for proper growth and tooth eruption.

6. We offer subtle solutions. 

We are aware that many people desire straight teeth, but do not want to advertise the process to the world. At Pulver Orthodontics we offer subtle solutions like clear braces and Invisalign® treatment which can straighten your teeth discreetly as well as miniature metal braces. When you entrust you or your child’s smile to us, you can expect integrity, compassion, and customized solutions designed to work for you.  

7. Pulver Orthodontics treats adults.

Orthodontics is not just for kids! In fact, about 35% of orthodontic patients at Pulver Orthodontics are adults. Many adults are finding out how a healthy and attractive smile is important to their health and the way they feel about themselves. Others choose to avoid a lifetime of crooked teeth to improve their dental health and bites. 

8. Technology has improved orthodontics.

Orthodontics isn't what it used to be. New, more efficient wires make the process quicker, more comfortable and with fewer visits. Clear braces offer a cosmetically pleasing alternative while lnvisalign® treatment offers the patient a brace-free option! And lnvisalign® now has a special treatment system just for teens.

9. We make treatment affordable.

Pulver Orthodontics can offer a number of affordable payment options. For your convenience, we accept most insurance plans and will work hard to help you receive the maximum benefit from your dental insurance. Low down payments and no-interest payment plans are available to make braces an affordable investment. 

10. Convenient hours to work with your schedule. 

With the help of our convenient scheduling system, highly trained staff, and welcoming atmosphere, we take the pressure off. We offer appointments starting at 7:00 AM and see patients as late as 6:00 PM to accommodate those wanting to come before and after school or work. We also offer appointments on Saturdays for those patients who can’t make it in during the week.
