A Specialist in Orthodontics
Orthodontists require additional training of at least two continuous years beyond dental school. Only those who finish an accredited program are eligible for membership into the American Association of Orthodontists. Dr. Basile provides orthodontic services exclusively.
As a patient, you will get Dr. Basile’s personal attention at every appointment because he is the only orthodontist in the office. Seeing one doctor exclusively allows for an ongoing personalized continuity of care.
- Pediatric Dentist
Dr. Basile has also completed a two-year residency at the University of Minnesota in pediatric dentistry and has practiced as a pediatric dentist. Pediatric dentists are primary and specialty oral care providers for infants and children through adolescence, including those with special health needs.
- Board Certification
Dr. Basile is a Diplomate of the American Board of Orthodontics. Board certification is a process by which an individual orthodontist is voluntarily examined by his/her peers as to orthodontic knowledge and clinical skills. The passage of the examination process is a demonstration to the dental profession and the general public of the orthodontist's pursuit of continued proficiency and excellence in orthodontics.
The primary purpose of The American Board of Orthodontics is to elevate the level of orthodontic care for the public by encouraging excellence in clinical practice and specialty education. In its mission statement, the Board clearly defines four objectives: 1) to evaluate the knowledge and clinical skills of graduates of accredited orthodontic programs by conducting exams and conferring time-limited certificates; 2) to re-evaluate clinical knowledge and skills through administration of recertification exams throughout a Diplomate's career; 3) to support the development of quality graduate, postgraduate and continuing education programs in orthodontics; and 4) to promote and encourage certification expertise throughout the world.
- Certified Invisalign® Provider
Dr. Basile has completed all necessary training in Invisalign® therapy making him a Certified Invisalign Provider.
We offer traditional metal braces, gold braces, ceramic (clear) braces, and Invisalign®.

All Diagnostic Records Done In-House
All of your treatment is done on-site. There is no need to travel to other offices for any reason including orthodontic records (photographs, diagnostic X-rays and models).
Flexible Payment Options
We recognize that orthodontic treatment can be costly, that is why we offer affordable, customized, monthly payment plans to our patients. If payment is made in full at the onset of treatment, we offer a fee discount. If you have insurance, we will offer a discount for payment of your portion of the fee that will not be covered by your insurance benefit. For your convenience, we also accept payment by VISA or MasterCard.
We offer Springstone Patient Financing which is a service that makes it possible for our patients to finance orthodontic treatment by providing low monthly payments.
