  • You feel welcome from the moment you walk in the office. All of the staff are so helpful. Dr. Chmura explained to me how my daughter’s overbite could be causing her sleep problems and possibly even why she is diagnosed as ADHD. I had no idea that there was so much more involved in Orthodontics! My daughter loves to come see Dr. Chmura. He is very patient with her, as well as the staff! We drive from Jackson, but it is well worth it! I am so happy we were referred here!!!


  • Wow were do I begin, I have taken my daughter to a few orthodontist but none of them would take her case they all said her case was to severe. Being in dentistry i knew on the dental aspect something had to be done but felt like I was at a dead end. Then someone told me about Dr. Chmura. What a complete blessing that was not only did Dr Chmura feel very comfortable taken her case but he and he’s staff made me and my daughter feel above and beyond comfortable and welcomed. Yes me and my daughter both cried happy tears and those happy tears did not stop there. We are completely happy and amazed with the progress. Dr.Chmura has definitely changed my daughter’s life not only on a dental aspect but also in her confidence. We are truly grateful and highly recommend Dr.Chmura…

  • Beautiful office and friendly staff. We went for a second opinion for my son and left with braces the same day! Loved that the doctor didn’t want to remove teeth and offered a better solution for dental issues.


  • Dr Chmura’s knowledge about orthodontics is amazing but his knowledge of things we would think isn’t related to orthodontics but is, is also amazing. He is professional all the time and talks to the patient and parents in a very kind way. He has completed braces on 2 of my 3 kids and is currently working with my 3rd child to help her sleep apnea. He is an orthodontist I would truly recommend.


  • I love the girls here so much. They’re all super sweet. Dr Chmura also did an amazing job on my teeth, and I couldn’t be more happy with my smile. I got a gum reduction done at the end of my treatment, as I had extra gum covering my teeth making the appear small. I’m so happy with the results, and can’t say enough good things about them.


  • Very thankful to have Dr. Chmura located close to our home. We believe the staff is wonderful, knowledgeable, and extremely helpful. Both of our children are patients. And we couldn’t be happier. Thank you.


  • Dr. Chmura and staff are extraordinary, understanding, and wonderfully explanatory. What a wonderful experience.

Using the Best Technology to Help Patients

  • Improve Patient Experience

  • Faster Treatment Times

  • More Precise Results


    You’ve heard it said that better information equals better results. We don’t just agree. We prove it every day. With our cone beam scanner, we’re able to get far more information than with traditional x-rays and with a fraction of the exposure time of older technologies. We use the incredible detail to create more precise treatment plans that make every aspect of treatment better.


    Remember those goopy impressions of your mouth you had to suffer through as a kid? Well if you ever had one – you’d remember it. In our digital treatment environment there’s an option to bite impressions – the I-Tero Digital Scanner. With I-Tero, we create a detailed, digital map of your teeth. For us this means extra detail and the anywhere accessibility of digital data. For our patients it means no goop and the ability to replace things, like aligners and retainers, without the need to come to the office for an appointment – saving time and money. Thought you’d like that.


    SureSmile technology helps doctors to create measurably better smiles for patients. It offers faster treatment times, fewer office visits, less overall discomfort, beautiful smile line, no need for headgear, no unnecessary tooth extractions and higher quality results. More precision, better results, and a beautiful smile in less time than conventional braces.

Sleep Apnea

Sleep apnea is a condition in which your breathing stops periodically during sleep, as many as 20-30 times per hour. Each time you stop breathing in your sleep, the resulting lack of oxygen alerts your brain, which temporarily wakes you up to restart proper breathing. Since the time spent awake is so brief, most people with sleep apnea don't remember it, and many feel like they are getting a good night's sleep when, in fact, they are not. The constant wake-sleep, wake-sleep cycle prevents those with sleep apnea from achieving deep sleep, resulting in a constant drowsy feeling during the day.

Dr. Chmura’s experience and knowledge is extensive! In fact, Dr. Chmura is one of the foremost teachers of Sleep Apnea and Orthodontics. Doctors from all over the world come together to learn from him. He also suffers from severe sleep apnea himself and knows first hand the debilitating effects it can have on your life and wants to minimize that risk for as many people as possible.

  • 2. Are there any costs for x-rays or diagnostics during the initial consult?

    No, they are complimentary.

  • 3. What are your prices?

    The costs will vary based on the treatment plan you choose with the Doctor. Many patients choose our flexible payment options such as minimal down payment with monthly payments as low as $150/mo, with no hidden fees and no interest.

  • 4. Why should I see Dr. Chmura instead of someone else?

    Your smile might be made worse if you go somewhere else. You also run the risk of losing teeth and your bite might be altered for the worse! The key to great orthodontics is not just getting the teeth straightened, but keeping them that way. We are not happy until you are happy and we will not settle for less than 100%.

  • 5. What types of services do you offer?

    We specialize in orthodontic treatment and offer services such as: - Traditional Metal Braces - Clear Braces - Lingual Braces - Accelerated Orthodontics - Invisalign We also provide children with preventative orthodontic treatment (if needed) or full treatment.

  • 6. Is there a cost for an initial examination/consultation?

    No, it is complimentary.

  • 7. What are my options for insurance? Do you take insurance?

    Insurance information can change from time to time so it would be best to speak with one of our team members to ask more specific questions regarding your insurance!

  • 8. What is the difference between an orthodontist and a dentist?

    An orthodontist is a dentist, but a dentist is not an orthodontist. An orthodontist is a dentist that graduation in the top 3% of their class and was accepted into an orthodontic residency program. Both dentists and orthodontists can perform orthodontics, but orthodontists like Dr. Chmura went through an additional 2-3 years of full-time schooling just to learn how to move teeth into the most beautiful and stable positions.

  • 9. How long will my treatment take?

    This is a very difficult question to answer because it can vary depending on the complexity of the case. This would be a great question to ask at your consultation.

  • 10. Am I a good fit for orthodontics?

    If you have any of the following, you may be a candidate for orthodontic treatment:

    Overbite: Sometimes called “buck teeth,” where the upper front teeth lie too far forward (stick out) over the lower teeth. Underbite: A “bulldog” appearance, where the lower teeth are too far forward or the upper teeth too far back. Crossbite: When the upper teeth do not come down slightly in front of the lower teeth when biting together normally. Open Bite: Space between the biting surfaces of the front and/or side teeth when the back teeth bite together. Misplaced Midline: When the center of your upper front teeth does not line up with the center of your lower front teeth. Spacing: Gaps, or spaces, between the teeth as a result of missing teeth or teeth that do not “fill up” the mouth. Crowding: When there are too many teeth for the dental ridge to accommodate.
