Your New Smile Starts Here!

Our talented orthodontic team welcomes you to Sanborn Orthodontics. We strive to make your orthodontic experience as memorable and rewarding as possible by providing exceptional customer service with top-quality care in a comfortable and fun environment! 

Dr. Robert Sanborn believes in building positive relationships with our patients. He wants to get to know you and your family and takes the time to learn about the things that are most important to you. Each smile that Dr. Sanborn and his team helps to create is as unique as the person it belongs to; therefore, we customize each smile for each patient.

Dr. Sanborn also prefers a non-extraction approach to orthodontics, whenever possible, to achieve a beautiful, full smile.

Sanborn Orthodontics offers a variety of orthodontic solutions, all customized to fit your individual orthodontic needs, including Damon™ Smile, Damon™ ClearInvisalign®, and Invisalign Teen®. We use the latest in state-of-the-art orthodontic and digital equipment to offer our patients a comfortable and environmentally friendly experience.

For new patients, we are also pleased to offer a complimentary orthodontic consultation, so you can learn about which treatment option will work best for you.

Our Experience!

Our team is equipped to provide you with the best smile possible in a timely manner. We are the EXCLUSIVE provider in the area of Damon Smile Braces. This system requires a minimum of at least two years of experience with its technology in order to implement the powerful benefits the Damon Smile System provides.

Dr. Sanborn has treated hundreds of patients with this system, which is what has made us the leaders in the area with this technology. Our team is also the PREFERRED provider of Damon Clear, which means you can experience the power of Damon using clear brackets! You can rest assured that, since our office is the only Preferred Provider of the Damon Smile system in our community, you will benefit from the POWER this system will provide for you!

Dr. Sanborn is also a Platinum Provider with Invisalign Clear Aligner Technology. He has taken his art for creating beautiful smiles down the clear path with Invisalign. We specialize in adult and teen Invisalign.  


Our mission at Sanborn Orthodontics is to provide you with the highest quality of orthodontic treatment possible in a fun and friendly environment. The systematic approach we have to treating our patients makes this possible for Dr. Sanborn to do it 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 we use in our office and our ability to create broad, wide smiles that are aesthetically 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, to acquire THREE TIMES the required minimum of continuing educations in order to make himself ever better as an orthodontist.  

The Experience!

We have gone above and beyond to make sure your experience with our office is like no other! We want your time with us to be fun, relaxing, and memorable.

Best ortho around great with kids. They have activities to put the kids at ease and keep them occupied even video screens to watch movies while in the chair being examined."

Brian L.

“On vacation, my son's expander broke, and half of it came out of his mouth. We slightly panicked as we were more than two hours from home. We called Sanborn Orthodontist, they stayed open for us to get there and took care of him as if he was one of their regular patients. We were so impressed and thankful."

Maureen B.

“The staff is awesome. They made our little girl feel so comfortable. Outstanding atmosphere!"

Cathy L.

“Love Dr. Sanborn and his staff. They are very friendly and care about all their patients. He is involved in the community in promoting dental care. I went in for my consultation appointment and I was back in the next day getting my braces on. I would recommend Dr. Sanborn for anyone who is looking for a good orthodontist."
