What Sets Us Apart

Welcome to Cedar Valley Orthodontics, where our focus is on you and your smile. Here, Dr. Christopher Holahan and each member of our team is committed to developing amazing smiles while building strong, long-term relationships with our patients.

Ours is a friendly, welcoming practice, with a lot of laughter and smiles shared between our staff and our patients. We love that our work allows us to make positive, lasting changes in the lives of people we care about, and we come to work looking forward to the day ahead.

We know we’ll get to meet some new people and begin learning about their lives, and we’ll have visits from established patients and hear updates about what’s been happening with their families and the adventures they’ve had since their last visit. These exchanges are wonderful, and we enjoy every one of them.

Make no mistake about it, though: we are consummate professionals, with years of experience creating great oral health and straight teeth for our patients. Each year, we pursue continuing education courses to stay on the leading edge of technology and treatment processes, and are constantly seeking out ways to improve the patient experience.

Respecting our patients is always emphasized at our practice. Not only do we run on time so you are not waiting, but we never overbook the schedule, so each patient and parent doesn’t feel rushed and has time to ask any questions they might have.

We also show respect in how we decide on your path of treatment. At your complimentary consultation, Dr. Holahan will perform a thorough examination, then sit down and explain the various orthodontic treatment options for correcting any issues. He encourages patients and their parents to ask questions and be involved in the decision-making process.

The parent of three children, one of whom is currently in orthodontic treatment, Dr. Holahan knows how to explain the different techniques in terms that a younger patient can easily understand. And because he went through orthodontics himself, as a teenager and as an adult, he knows some of the concerns of older patients, as well.

Many people believe that orthodontics is only for children and teens, but nothing could be further from the truth. Having a good bite and beautiful, healthy teeth can benefit anyone at any age, including adults and seniors. If you have concerns about people knowing that you’re going through treatment, Cedar Valley Orthodontics offers Invisalign® clear aligners, which means no one will be able to tell your teeth are slowly, gently being shifted into place.

For more information about orthodontics and the care we offer, and to schedule a complimentary consultation for your child or yourself, please call our Charles City, IA office today.

Everyone on our team at Cedar Valley Orthodontics looks forward to welcoming you to our family and starting you on the path to an incredibly beautiful new smile!
