As the Vracar family chef, Dr. Michael enjoys celebrating Shabbat, or the Sabbath, when he cooks a large feast to bring family and friends together to celebrate the work that Jesus has done to allow us to have fun and to peacefully rest alongside our loved ones.

When he isn’t cooking feasts or training for and competing in triathlons with Dr. Taylor, Dr. Michael loves spending time with his kids and playing beach volleyball, exercising, leading Bible studies, going to church, trying new restaurants, and making “healthy” desserts.

Outside of the office

Dr. Taylor enjoys training for and competing in triathlons with Dr. Michael (although she probably enjoys the post-race food the most!). She loves to spend time with her kids, exercise and play sports, lead Bible studies, go to church, and try new restaurants.

Dr. Taylor can beat Dr. Michael in 3 things: beach volleyball, distance swimming, and air-squat competitions. She is passionate about the FamilyTeams movement, which seeks to equip and empower parents to build a multigenerational family team to further God’s kingdom here on Earth as it is in Heaven.

Care For All Ages From Your Tallahassee Family Orthodontist

At Redemption Orthodontics, we believe that everyone should be able to access quality orthodontic treatment and that everyone deserves a beautifully aligned smile. We are proud to offer a full range of orthodontic services, including braces and Invisalign, for children, teens, and adults at our office in Tallahassee.

Tallahassee Orthodontics for Children

In order to ensure that your child is as healthy as possible, it's important that their teeth and jaws are properly aligned, giving them a healthy bite. Many parents are surprised to learn that the American Association of Orthodontists recommends that children get an orthodontic check-up no later than age 7.

By that age, your child's teeth have developed enough so that small problems with jaw growth and emerging teeth can be spotted while they still have some baby teeth. A check-up may reveal that your child's bite is fine and that braces won't be necessary, or we may identify a potential problem and recommended that we monitor it. From there, we may begin treatment at a time that is appropriate for the child. In other cases, we may recommended early treatment.

Orthodontic Care for Tallahassee Teens

Early treatment allows our team to monitor the growth and development of your child's jaw, meaning we can catch and begin treating problems while they're still in the early stages. This can cut down the length of treatment considerably.

Teens often want to know, "How long will I be in braces?" There's no set answer, as each case is different, just like each smile is unique. We're always going to do everything that we can to ensure that your teen has their most beautiful, forever smile. Fortunately, today's braces are a big improvement over the ones that previous generations have experienced. They're smaller, sleeker, and far more comfortable than ever before. They also come in a variety of styles, materials and colors.

In addition, teens also have more treatment options than ever before. In addition to traditional metal braces, teens also have the option of choosing clear, ceramic braces, which work the same way traditional braces do, but are designed to blend in with your teen's teeth, giving a more subtle appearance. Also, if your teen wants a new smile with no wires, whatsoever, they might consider treatment using clear aligners, such as Invisalign. Clear aligners straighten teeth gradually using a series of clear, removable trays that fit over the teeth.

Adult Orthodontics in Tallahassee

Orthodontic treatment isn't just for children and teens. More adults than ever are seeking beautiful, forever smiles through orthodontic treatment. Today, roughly 1-in-5 orthodontic patients are adults, so it's never too late to get that stunning smile that you've always wanted.

Many adults are choosing to receive treatment later in life because they understand how important it is to maintain their oral health, they want to feel better about their overall appearance, or both. We also see many adults who have received orthodontic treatment during their early years, but are in need of a "touch up" to regain the smiles they once had.

At Redemption Orthodontics, we recognize that children, teens, and adults will all have different dental needs and need different levels of attention and care. We work diligently with each patient to ensure you receive the most appropriate treatment for you in the most inviting environment.
