In addition to traditional appliances, we offer a wide range of braces and treatment options to meet the needs and desires of each individual patient, including:


The Invisalign system is a series of clear, removable aligners that straightens teeth, providing an alternative to traditional metal braces. Dr. Crouse is a Top 1% Provider and has treated over 1,700 people with the Invisalign appliance.  He is the first orthodontist on the Eastern Shore of Maryland, Delaware and Virginia to reach this status!

Accelerated Orthodontics

AcceleDent is a hands-free device that's worn for 20 minutes per day to accelerate tooth movement and speed up orthodontic treatment by as much as 50%. Dr. Crouse was the first AcceleDent Provider on the Eastern Shore.

Oral Sleep Appliances

Sleep appliances are custom-made mouthguard-like devices worn at night while sleeping to treat chronic snoring and mild-to-moderate obstructive sleep apnea. Sleep appliances are an effective alternative for individuals with sleep apnea that are intolerable to their CPAP machine.
