Dr. Robert Sanborn believes in building positive relationships with our patients.

Our mission at Sanborn Orthodontics is to provide you with the highest quality of orthodontic treatment possible in a fun & friendly environment.  The systematic approach we have to treating our patients makes this possible for Dr. Sanborn  to do in a seamless manner. Our dental referrals comment all the time on the beautiful smiles we create in our office on a consistent basis.  Comments like, "We can tell where our patients have been treated without even looking at their chart when they come into our office." This is because of the technology that we use in our office and the ability we have to create broad, wide smiles which are esthetically pleasing.

Our Pursuit of Excellence!

We believe that excellence is not an end point, but something one should strive for on a daily basis.  Dr. Sanborn is always on the pursuit of excellence. Continuing education classes are something that orthodontists are required to complete in order to maintain their license. Dr. Sanborn goes above and beyond this minimum, acquiring 3 TIMES the required continuing education hour minimums in order to better himself as an orthodontist.
