Welcome to Prevention Orthodontics in Chicago and Mt. Prospect, IL
Dr. Kevin McCoy and his team work together to provide the highest quality orthodontic services in a friendly, caring manner.
We let the patient decide if they want braces or clear aligners to straighten their teeth.
With early monitoring as your child’s permanent teeth erupt, monitoring that should start at age six, Dr. McCoy can help you prevent the development of difficult to correct orthodontic problems that dentists simply let happen.
Did you know that the longer you wait to first see an orthodontist, the longer your teenager will need to be in braces? That’s a big bummer.
We all need to think Prevention Orthodontics, because Dr. McCoy can help prevent orthodontic problems from arising AS your child’s teeth start to erupt at age six, without braces, so that when your child does need braces at around age twelve, their treatment will be shorter, and you will get more value out of their treatment just in case your teenager isn’t a good cooperator.
When you come in at age six, we take photos and you go home. That’s it.
We put you on recall to monitor the eruption of your child’s permanent teeth because Dr. McCoy knows the right time and how to prevent orthodontic problems from becoming difficult and time-consuming to correct simply because your dentist said to wait until they lost all of their baby teeth.
Nowhere, in any book, is it advised to wait until you lose all of your primary teeth to see an orthodontist.

Our goal is to provide the highest quality orthodontic treatment for all our patients with a personal touch in a supportive and caring environment. We love what we do and it shows!
