We love Minera Orthodontics! We have 2 children in braces with a third to follow. The environment is clean, professional, and friendly. All three doctors are great and take the time to explain everything they are doing and put everyone at ease. When deciding whether or not to pull some permanent teeth to make room in the mouth of one of my children I wasn’t feeling very comfortable.

Dr. Minera was more than happy to call two of my brothers who are both dentists out of state to collaborate and discuss treatment options per my request so I could make the best decision with the most information. Dr. Minera was open to having another professional’s opinion which shows confidence and integrity, and they all came to the same conclusion. My kids’ teeth are looking amazing thanks to Minera Orthodontics!

We just finished our treatment at Minera Orthodontics and it was a wonderful experience! Not only are Drs. Minera and the staff were very kind and helpful, they go above and beyond for their patients!  My daughter has a beautiful smile and we have 2 more kids that will be going there soon. Thanks for the incredible experience!

Dr. Minera and her team went above and beyond for me! I had been having some issues with a new permanent retainer I received right before moving to Warrenton. I came into Dr. Minera who saw me trying to fix my retainer, and when I had further issues over the weekend, she had me come in and totally replaced and resolved all the issues I had brought from another office.

I was SO grateful to her and her staff. They eased all of my concerns and really gave me personalized care. I felt confident in their ability. They really went above and beyond for me!

Psychological and Emotional Impact of a Beautiful Smile

orthodonticsA beautiful smile is often more than just a physical attribute – it has the power to significantly impact an individual’s psychological well-being and emotional state. The psychological benefits of a beautiful smile go beyond physical appearance. Embrace your transformed smile, let it radiate positivity in your interactions.

  1. Enhanced Self-Esteem: A straight and attractive smile can lead to a boost in self-esteem. When individuals feel confident about their smiles, they tend to feel more confident about themselves in general. This newfound confidence can influence how they interact with others, participate in social activities, and even take on new challenges.
  2. Improved Social Interaction: A beautiful smile can act as a social icebreaker. People with smiles they’re proud of are often more approachable and open to forming new connections. A confident smile can make residents feel more integrated and accepted
  3. Positive Body Image: Orthodontic treatment not only aligns teeth but also contributes to a healthier and more harmonious facial appearance. This can lead to a more positive body image, as individuals begin to appreciate their overall appearance. In Warrenton, where a strong sense of community identity exists, feeling comfortable in one’s own skin can lead to a greater sense of belonging and acceptance.
  4. Professional Confidence: In a community like Warrenton, where local businesses and professional relationship-rive, confidence can be a game-changer. A beautiful smile can influence job interviews, client interactions, and networking opportunities. When individuals feel confident in their smiles, they are more likely to project confidence in their professional endeavors, leading to career advancement and success.
  5. Emotional Well-Being: A smile that individuals are proud of can contribute to overall emotional well-being. Smiling triggers the release of endorphins, which are often referred to as “feel-good” hormones. This can contribute to reduced stress levels, increased relaxation, and an overall more positive outlook on life.

Easy 5-star review! This orthodontist practice is a good one! I have known some of the staff for years before I ever stepped foot inside the office. I was in need of some liners to help straighten my teeth a bit and reached out to Brianna who I knew had been in that business for a while.

Told her my concerns and she booked me in right away! Once you get there, they are so easy to work with. Dr. Minera has been great since day one. Being able to tell someone cares about your situation is a big key to customer service. There was no question they were there to help!

Fast forward 2 years, I moved to FL and was still in the process of finishing my clear liners- I explained to the ortho that I was moving and there was no hesitation on what the next steps were. They have been able to get me in for Friday appointments when I visited home and have sent new liners throughout the process to Florida for me.

Even though I was not local they didn’t scratch me off the list- It means a lot that they are there to see me reach the finish line! If you are looking
