It is always our goal at Backus Orthodontics to offer our patients the very best orthodontic care in Hoover, AL and the surrounding communities.

We truly believe in furthering our education so that we can learn all we can. This not only benefits us but also helps our patients. We use this knowledge to give you the most up-to-date treatments so that you can have a smile that you are proud to show off.

We are proud to offer many different technologies so that you can get straight teeth in a way that works for you. We would be glad to go over all of your options so that together we can make the right decision for you and your mouth.

We also know how scary it can be to go to the dentist and orthodontist. Many people fear coming in, so we do everything that we can to provide a calm and comfortable environment. Our staff is great at what they do. They are here to discuss any of your concerns and put you at ease.

There is also nothing worse than feeling like you are not able to discuss your teeth with your orthodontist. We don’t want you to feel that way, so we are all here to help answer any questions you may have, no matter how silly you think they are. We can assure you that we have heard most of them already!
