A Legacy of Excellence
Dr. Christopher Frigo, DDS, is our lead orthodontist, bringing decades of expertise and a profound passion for his craft. With over two decades of experience, including five years of practice before founding Frigo Orthodontics, Dr. Frigo has successfully transformed the smiles of several thousand patients. He continues to travel worldwide in the pursuit of knowledge, learning from some of the most renowned orthodontic pioneers.
Today, he remains a lifelong learner, keeping up-to-date with modern orthodontic technology, all to provide the highest quality treatment at affordable rates to our community.
Our Comprehensive Services
At Frigo Orthodontics, we believe that everyone in our community deserves the opportunity for a better life, and we recognize that orthodontics is about much more than achieving a beautiful smile. Our approach to orthodontics is holistic, focusing on enhancing your overall well-being.
Here is a glimpse of the comprehensive services we offer:
- Complete Orthodontic Care: We cater to patients of all ages, with 40% of our clientele being adults. Every member of your family can benefit from our expertise.
- Pre-Orthodontic Guidance Program: We proactively guide young patients through the early stages of orthodontic care to optimize future outcomes.
- Complimentary Lifetime Retainers: Our commitment to your smile doesn’t end when your treatment does. We provide complimentary lifetime retainers (made right here in our In-House Lab) to help maintain your beautiful results.
- Non-Surgical Jaw Treatment: We offer non-invasive solutions for complex misalignments, avoiding surgical interventions.
While some orthodontic practices resort to invasive dental procedures as a first option, we take a different path. Dr. Frigo is one of the few orthodontists in the country to offer non-invasive, non-surgical treatments for complex issues. We are your trusted alternative to tooth extractions, bridges, and jaw surgeries.
At Frigo Orthodontics, we are unwavering in our commitment to providing the best possible experience for every patient who entrusts us with their orthodontic care. Our practice is not just about straightening teeth but also about transforming and enriching lives. No matter how small, every action can contribute to creating a better world.
Here are some of the ways we give back to the community:

- Veterans’ Program: As a US Air Force veteran, Dr. Frigo is proud to support fellow veterans through specialized programs, recognizing their service and providing exceptional orthodontic care.
- In-House Lab: By having a lab on-site, we can efficiently provide you with the highest quality, customized orthodontic appliances.
