Dr. Alan Ostertag
The orthodontic profession allows me to make a physical change in another’s dental health, which can improve their self-esteem and confidence in so many aspects of their life. The most rewarding aspect of being an orthodontist, for me, is the patients. I love seeing each person transform not only their dental health and smile, but personally as they progress in life.

Jordyn

“My family and I have had such a great experience with Dr. Newton and Dr. Ostertag. My biggest concern was making sure my children felt comfortable throughout their orthodontic experience. Not only have both doctors made sure the kids are at ease, they have gone above and beyond this expectation by including them in decision-making about their treatments. They do such a great job of explaining everything in terms I understand. When I need to make appointments, the office team works so well at fitting the appointments around our busy schedules. It is such a great experience every time we walk through their doors.”

Ross

“I was concerned about getting braces during my senior year of high school into my first year of college considering it is one of the most pivotal points in many peoples lives, including mine. But, Cedar Orthodontic Specialists made the process more enjoyable than I could have imagined. Everyone in the office is so friendly and I look forward to going to my appointments. Over the course of my treatment I feel like I made genuine connections with everyone there which is really special to me.”
