What Sets Us Apart?

At Murray & Olson Orthodontics, we strive to treat our patients with respect, professionalism, and sensitivity toward their needs.

We understand the expectations of our patients and their families, and we do everything we can to make sure that each patient has an exceptional experience at our practice.

Board-Certified Smile Experts

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

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

The orthodontic student spends three years learning the skills needed to manage tooth movement and to guide facial development.

On top of that, our doctors are board-certified. That extra training means you're getting expert care.

You want an 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.

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.

Our doctors 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. We want you to leave our office after every appointment knowing that you got the best possible care.

Orthodontics for Teens

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.


Modern Technology

Dr. Murray and Dr. Olson stay up-to-date on the latest in orthodontic treatments and braces technology.

Murray & Olson Orthodontics is your Visalia location for modern orthodontic treatment. We offer aesthetic options like ceramic braces and Invisalign.

We also offer AcceleDent Aura, an innovative, lightweight, and hands-free appliance that serves as a complement to your orthodontic treatment to lessen your overall treatment time.

The exclusive SoftPulse Technology’s precisely calibrated micro-pulses gently accelerate the movement of your teeth as guided by your orthodontic appliance. AcceleDent is safe, gentle, and reliable.

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

Everyone loves medical offices that offer flexible appointments and flexible treatment options, but we also offer flexible payment options.

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

You can also get a discount if you pay in full on the front end.


Convenient Location

Our office was designed with our patients in mind. Conveniently located in the heart of Visalia, Murray & Olson Orthodontics is minutes away from your home, school, or work.

We’re also surrounded by a wide variety of dining and shopping options, making a visit to your orthodontist a quick and easy part of your day.

Start Your Treatment the Same Day

The orthodontic treatment process involves a series of orthodontic visits.

We value the relationship that we will build with you and your family throughout that process and want you to be confident that you are receiving the best orthodontic care possible.

Once you feel like we've answered all of your questions and concerns, you can start your treatment that same day.

We value your time, and we know you want to make the most of your visit.
