What Sets Us Apart?

At Murray & Olson Orthodontics, you’ll be treated with respect, professionalism, and sensitivity toward your needs.

We understand the expectations of our patients and their families and we do everything we can to make sure that you and your family enjoy an exceptional experience at our Visalia practice.

Board-Certified Smile Experts

Dr. Scott Murray and Dr. Jeff Olson are orthodontists, but orthodontists are dentists first. Out of 100 dental school graduates, on average, only six go on to become orthodontists.

To practice orthodontics, students like Dr. Murray and Dr. Olson spend 11 years in training (four years of college, four years of dental school, and three years of orthodontics residency).

On top of that, Dr. Scott Murray and Dr. Jeff Olson are board-certified. That extra training means you're getting expert care.

You want a local expert to give you a new smile—not aligners you get in the mail. At Murray & Olson Orthodontics, that’s exactly what you’ll get.

Braces Visalia

Personal Service

From the moment you contact our office to your final retainer check appointment, at Murray & Olson Orthodontics, we want you to feel comfortable, welcome and appreciated.

Dr. Murray and Dr. Olson will review your photos and X-rays to find the best way to treat your individual needs. Then you’ll choose the type of braces you want—traditional metal, clear ceramic, or Invisalign.

Our goal at Murray & Olson Orthodontics is not just to give you the smile of your dreams, but we want you to leave our office after every appointment knowing that you got the best possible care.

Comfortable Treatments

Gone are the days of painful headgear, clunky bands on every tooth, and overly tight stainless steel wires. Today's orthodontic treatment is much more comfortable than it used to be. This is because of shape-memory NiTi wires.

With the same technology that NASA uses, NiTi wires exert a continuous force against the teeth to move them in the right direction. This gets rid of the need for wire tightening. This means you spend less time in braces, and the time you do spend is more comfortable.

At Murray & Olson Orthodontics, we take pride in making the process of straightening your teeth as comfortable as possible.

Invisalign for Teens

No Goopy, Gaggy Impressions

We pride ourselves on staying up-to-date with the latest in orthodontic treatments and technology. At your initial consultation, we’ll use our iTero Element Scanner to take digital scans of your teeth, eliminating the need for goopy impressions.

The iTero process is quick and painless. We’ll use the iTero Element Scanner wand to capture images of your teeth and gum tissue. You can breathe or swallow as you normally would. You can even pause during the process if you need to sneeze or just want to ask a question.

The iTero Element scanner will give us a 3D model of your mouth that we can use with all orthodontic services, including the Invisalign Outcome Simulator, to show you what your new smile might look like.

Flexible Payments

At Murray & Olson Orthodontics you’ll enjoy flexible appointment times and flexible treatment options, and you’ll also get flexible payment options!

After we’ve determined your California insurance coverage and filed it for you, your financial coordinator will sit down and come up with a monthly payment plan that fits your family’s budget.

You can have us even check your benefits before you arrive and give you a complete financial breakdown right away.
