Transforming Lives by Changing Smiles

Your smile is the first thing people notice when meeting you. A beautiful smile, with healthy and straight teeth, immediately puts people at ease.

Dr. Susan Leiva and her staff at Monroe Orthodontics would love to help you develop a beautiful smile, one brimming with confidence!

Imagine your life after orthodontics: you’ll no longer feel embarrassed about your crooked teeth, ducking your head or covering your mouth when smiling. Instead, you’ll walk taller, making eye-contact and smiling readily.

Your self-esteem will grow by leaps and bounds, and you’ll be happier in your personal and public interactions.

It would be our honor to help you achieve a lifetime of incredible smiles!

Expert Training

Dr. Leiva is an orthodontist. Orthodontists are dentists first. Out of 100 dental school graduates, on average, only six go on to become orthodontists.

To practice orthodontics, Dr. Leiva spent 11 years in training (four years of college, four years of dental school, and three years of orthodontics residency).

Orthodontic students spend three years learning the skills to guide facial development and manage tooth movement.

You want an expert to give you a new smile—not from aligners you get in the mail.

Personal Service

From the moment you contact our office to your final retainer check appointment, your complete satisfaction is our goal at Monroe Orthodontics.

At your free consultation, we’ll spend a lot of time talking and asking questions. The better Dr. Leiva understands what you want, the better she can create a perfect care approach for you.

She considers your clinical situation, and your facial structure, lifestyle, and timeline; this ensures you’ll have an enjoyable treatment experience and results that have you smiling with joy.

Dr. Leiva will review your photos and X-rays to find the best way to treat your individual needs.

Then you’ll choose the type of braces you want - traditional metal, clear ceramic, or Invisalign. Our goal at Monroe Orthodontics is not just to give you the smile of your dreams.

We want you to leave our office after every appointment knowing that you got the best possible care.

We Focus on You

We’ve created an office where you’ll always feel relaxed, supported, and welcomed. You’re important to everyone in the office.

While we’re experienced professionals, we also love people. We love getting to know new patients and their families and building long-term relationships.

One of the best things about orthodontics is having the time to really learn who you are. We’ll see you about once a month, over a year or two, and those visits will be a time to catch up with a friend.

Yes, we’ll be excited to see the progress you’re making on your smile, but we’ll be just as excited to hear what’s happened since we last saw you.

You will never be a number on a patient file to any of us: we’ll know you by name and remember our last conversation. The day we take off your braces and see all you’ve accomplished, we’ll sing to you and give you a “Congratulations” goody bag!


Comfortable Treatments

Gone are the days of painful headgear, clunky bands on every tooth, and overly tight stainless steel wires. Today's orthodontic treatment is much more comfortable than it used to be. This is because of shape-memory NiTi wires.

With the same technology that NASA uses, NiTi wires exert a continuous force against the teeth to move them in the right direction. This gets rid of the need for wire tightening. This means you spend less time in braces, and the time you do spend is more comfortable.

At Monroe Orthodontics, we take pride in making the process of straightening your teeth as comfortable as possible.
