What Gullick Orthodontics is doing to keep you safe from COVID-19:

During this difficult time, we have made adjustments to our office procedures according to the standards set forth by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, American Dental Association, Texas Dental Association, and Texas State Board of Dental Examiners to ensure the health and safety of our patients, our staff, and our doctors. We have implemented the following procedures:

  1. Patient and staff screening and contactless temperatures taken upon entering the office:
    • If patients have symptoms or have been exposed to COVID-19, they are asked to reschedule their appointments.
    • If staff have symptoms or have been exposed to COVID-19, they are asked to remain at home until CDC quarantine standards have been met.
  2. Even more rigorous disinfection standards between patients:
    • The dental health profession has always been at the forefront of infection control standards. We have always worked hard to disinfect all chairs and equipment and sterilize all instruments between patients. We have added additional disinfection regimens of all hard surfaces (including doorknobs, chairs, sinks, counters, etc.).
    • Patients are asked to wash hands or use hand sanitizer upon entering the office, and are asked to rinse with Listerine and peroxide at the beginning of their scheduled appointments to help reduce the bacterial load present in the oral environment.
  3. Mask requirement for patients and staff:
    • Masks are required to enter the office. Patient masks are only removed during patient examination and procedures, and patients are asked to put their masks back on prior to checking out or exiting the building.
    • Doctors and staff are wearing masks at all times, while adding additional appropriate PPE when indicated.
  4.  Limited Appointment Scheduling and Social Distancing of Patients:
    • Appointments are spaced out to allow time for thorough disinfection and cleaning between appointments, and to ensure patients are adequately socially distanced from each other while seated.
    • We have limited occupancy in the waiting room, and parents are encouraged to wait in the car to limit the amount of people in the office at one time. All parents will receive a call at the end of their child’s appointment to discuss what treatment occurred that day and to schedule their child’s next appointment.
  5. Aerosol-generating procedures are limited to certain operatories where adequate isolation standards can be maintained.
  6. Medical grade HEPA air filters, which filter 99.97% of particles, including dust, pollen, viruses, and bacteria, every 15 minutes have been installed in all operatories.

Thank you for your support and understanding during these unprecedented times. Please stay safe and healthy.

In addition to braces for children, teens, and adults, we also offer Radiance™ clear braces and Invisalign® and Invisalign Teen® clear aligners.

Come in and discover a wonderful orthodontic experience!

Types of Treatment



Invisalign from Gullick Orthodontics is a great way to get the smile you’ve always wanted without the fuss and hassle of traditional brackets and wires. Invisalign’s smooth, removable aligners let you eat and drink whatever you want, and don’t interfere with your normal brushing and flossing routine. Plus, they’re clear, so no one will even know you’re wearing them!


Radiance™ Brackets

Gullick Orthodontics offers Radiance brackets to patients of all ages, giving them a clearly comfortable alternative to traditional metal braces. Radiance brackets are cut from a single crystal of pure sapphire. Once the cutting is complete, the brackets are heat polished until they are smooth, clear, and ready to wear!


Types of Braces

Orthodontic appliances at Gullick Orthodontics are made of metal, ceramic, or plastic. Depending on your treatment needs, they may be removable clear aligners or they may be brackets bonded to the teeth. By placing a constant, gentle force in a carefully controlled direction, braces slowly move teeth to the proper position.
