Questions Answered:

Q. I keep hearing about the great results that can be achieved with Damon braces. What makes Damon braces so different?

DR. SUTHERLAND: The Damon bracket system uses the latest orthodontic  technology to deliver great results.  Damon braces use a sliding door technology known as passive self-ligation, allowing the wire to slide back and forth within the bracket. In most cases, this allows for natural widening of the arch form without the need for expanders.  Also, the shape-memory wire moves teeth with fewer adjustments. Passive self-ligating braces like the Damon system work very well for adults, and allow  the orthodontist to treat most crowded cases without  extracting permanent teeth.

To find out more about the different ways to straighten your teeth, please visit us on the web at and email us for an appointment or call our office at

The Dr. In real Life

This blog is a wonderful place for us to share with you parts of our lives you do not get to see at the office.  Dr. Sutherland has five children, and the youngest was married this summer.  The day before was a rehearsal Dinner Hoe Down. Since Dr. Sutherland is originally from Montana, he was quite natural as a cowboy.

Additionally, Greg & Raelene celebrated their 34th wedding anniversary this summer.  There was plenty to celebrate in the Sutherland household, since two weeks before the wedding their 6th grandchild was born, Evelyn Francis Kortus.
