Free Initial Consultations
Many patients who are unhappy with their teeth are hesitant to schedule an orthodontic evaluation due to cost concerns.

During your complimentary consultation, Dr. Hulme can evaluate your teeth, inform you about your treatment options, and provide estimated orthodontic treatment costs.
Misaligned teeth can negatively affect your oral health and self-confidence at any age. Crooked or crowded teeth make it more difficult to brush and floss properly, increasing your risk of dental decay. Misaligned teeth can also prevent you from smiling or speaking freely in social and professional situations. Our orthodontist can help you achieve the beautiful smile you've always wanted, which can help you maintain healthy teeth and a higher sense of self-esteem.

Backed by Advanced Technology
Our practice is proud to offer some of the most advanced technology in San Antonio, TX, and throughout the state. To provide patients with the very best care, Dr. Hulme has invested in various pieces of technology, including:
- Digital X-Rays: We use digital x-rays to scan your teeth and jaws prior to orthodontic treatment. Unlike traditional x-rays, digital x-rays can be viewed immediately and do not expose patients to harmful radiation.
- iTero® Digital Impressions: Most dentists take impressions of your teeth using goopy, uncomfortable putty impressions. At our San Antonio orthodontics offices, we use the iTero Digital Impression System to gather digital impressions of your teeth with a small wand-like device.
