Your Bay City Orthodontist
Dr. Lisa Davis is honored to call herself an orthodontist and help people smile every day. She enjoys affecting a person’s image and self-esteem in such a positive way.
Regardless of their age, each one of her patients has something very important to share with her. It is always amazing to see an adolescent patient start treatment and then finish as a young adult with a beautiful smile.
She has proudly served the Great Lakes Bay region since 1996.
Orthodontics is never dull for Dr. Dale Davis. There are always new and interesting people and patients in the office to talk to and the uniqueness of each keeps it fresh. He learns a lot from them and it keeps his practice and life interesting and exciting!
Orthodontics is the culmination of everything Dr. Dale loves. He loves being around people! The adolescent patients keep him young and laughing. He also enjoys the artistic side of orthodontics and creating a beautiful, healthy smile!
Being from the small town of Peoria, Illinois, Dr. Dale found a new small-town home in the Great Lakes Bay Region in 1996.
Having the ability to not only create a beautiful, confident smile but also create lifelong relationships with individuals and families in his hometown community is something unique and special that Dr. Andrew Grillo takes great pride in.
He feels fortunate to have a role as a leader and mentor in the Great Lakes Bay region that served him so well in his youth. He grew up in Midland as the youngest of six children and graduated in 2008 from Midland High School – where he met his wife, Lindsey (Dulude), who he shares a passion for sports and the outdoors with. Lindsey is currently an elementary teacher for Midland Public Schools.
Dr. Grillo is a Board Certified Orthodontist. This is a designation held by only 30% of orthodontists.
Bay City Braces
Traditional braces are one of the most efficient orthodontic tools we have. They're made out of metal or ceramic brackets that are attached to the teeth, then connected by wires and tiny rubber bands or elastics. These brackets, wires, and bands work together to apply the gentle pressure that will gradually move the teeth into the positions we want them to be in if you have regular adjustments with our doctors.
Bay City braces are an excellent choice for correcting complex tooth issues. Because they can sometimes work faster at aligning teeth and closing gaps than other treatments might, overall treatment time may be slightly reduced. Braces don't need some of the more complex technology or expensive equipment that newer treatments can, making Bay City braces a cost-effective orthodontic option.
Bay City Invisalign
Invisalign is incredibly popular with both patients and orthodontists and is the top alternative to traditional braces. Instead of brackets and bands, the Bay City Invisalign system uses a series of clear, removable aligners to gradually straighten your teeth.
Invisalign aligners are made of a comfortable plastic material and customized to fit snugly over your teeth. In order to keep your teeth moving in the direction you want them to, you'll generally need to switch your invisible trays out every 1-2 weeks for the next in the series. The Invisalign system can only work if the recommended guidelines are followed exactly! Aligners should be worn 20-22 hours per day throughout treatment. If patients neglect to wear the aligners as directed, it can impede the results and also add time to the orthodontic process.
Invisalign is at its most efficient when correcting many of the most common orthodontic issues. For some complex cases, Invisalign may not be a good option. A free consultation with Great Lakes Bay Orthodontics will allow us to determine your Invisalign eligibility.
