Sometimes our bad habits like mouth breathing, thumb sucking, tongue thrusting and reverse swallowing, known as incorrect myofunctional habits to us folks in the dental biz, are the underlying cause of incorrectly developing jaws and teeth. Enter the Myobrace System, which is a nifty, natural way to fix those bad habits and exert light force to align the teeth and jaws into their natural position without braces.
The best part? No complex equipment and no mouth full of metal. You only need to wear a Myobrace appliance for one or two hours a day and overnight while snoozing.
Dr. Paddy and the entire office staff are helpful and communicative. Every question I've had has been thoroughly and thoughtfully answered. My 2 year old has had major oral surgery and is still happy to go to the office; it really is kid friendly.Laura
Dr. Paddy and his staff do a fantastic job of making my kids feel comfortable and at ease when we visit his office. My daughter is always asking me "when can we go see Dr. Paddy" because she has such a good time going to his office. Having my kids dentist be board certified makes me feel confident that I'm getting the best care possible for my kids.Eric
Dr. Paddy is incredibly kind and I would highly recommend him to anyone. Our daughter had such a lovely experience that she asks to visit the doctor whenever we are near his office. Truly top notch- we couldn't be happier with the care given to our daughter.Jennifer
Choosing "Kids Mile High Pediatric Dentistry" for the dental treatment of my seven years old son, is the best decision I ever made. Dr. Paddy is the kindest and most professional pediatric dentist I've seen, and I have taken my son to many dentists before, including Children's hospital.Maklau
Dr. Paddy and the Kids Mile High Staff were excellent! Dr. Paddy was so professional in relating to my kids and to me as a parent. We recently relocated to the Denver area, and my 5 and 3 year old were seen for their first check-ups. It was by far the best pediatric dental experience we've had.Whitney
Such a great place to take your child for a check up. The staff is friendly and really take care of you, and are so great with kids! It was my daughter's first dentist visit and she loved it!!! I'm happy we found the this place.Elena
