From Our Website

Life is better when you smile! It unlocks your true potential. Although your smile is the focus of our treatment, when you come to our practice, we want you to feel like family, not just a check-up or exam. We pride ourselves on that at Schantz and Moranda Orthodontics. Dr. Morgan Moranda was born and raised in Southern California. He completed his undergraduate education in Biology at the University of California Riverside. Achieving high honors and actively being involved in research that was published in the Journal of Neuroscience led to his acceptance to the dental school at the University of California, Los Angeles.


You know how important it is to brush and floss properly when you're wearing braces - but what's the best way to do that? Let's start with the basic brushing tools: Either a soft-bristle brush or a bi-level brush (one that has shorter bristles in the middle and longer bristles at the edges) can be effective. Used carefully, an electric toothbrush can work just as well. But be sure the electric brush is set to a moderate power level, and don't let its vibrations cause the back of the brush to hit the braces!
