Your Orthodontic Treatment

The journey to your perfect smile begins here…

Your Complimentary Consultation

When you arrive to our office, you’ll meet our stellar team, receive a full exam and create a customized treatment plan with our Doctor and our Treatment Coordinator.

We’ll go over costs, your insurance options and discuss our flexible and affordable financial plans.

We always reserve extra time in the schedule in case you decide to get started with treatment the same day!

After Your Consultation

You’re on the way to a confident smile!

We’ll choose a treatment plan that works for you, then we will have the opportunity to start right away or we can schedule a future appointment.

Early Treatment

Some children require additional treatment before getting their braces on, and these steps are much easier to take sooner rather than later. Come bring your child in for a consultation with one of our orthodontists to monitor and plan the best option for their orthodontic treatment.

Growth and Development

When it comes to giving your child the perfect smile, it is essential to monitor the growth of the mouth and jaw from a young age. Come and see one of our orthodontists to determine your child’s optimal treatment plan.

Teens and Tweens

Nobody uses braces more than teens and tweens! At Little Crown Orthodontics and Pediatric Dentistry, we offer a variety of treatment options so that all of our patients can find the one that works for them.

Adult Treatment Options

Everyone deserves a beautiful smile. Whether you’re looking for the traditional braces experience or want something a little more discreet like Invisalign, Little Crown Orthodontics and Pediatric Dentistry is proud to offer top-tier care and treatment for both children and adult patients.

Braces and Clear Braces

Braces are the classic option for orthodontic treatment and have never been better. This tried and true method yields great results, and clear braces are just as effective while offering reduced visibility on your teeth.


Some patients understandably prefer a more subtle treatment compared to traditional braces. Invisalign uses a series of clear aligners to slowly shift your teeth over time and offer a nearly invisible way to create a terrific smile.

Active Aligners and Retainers

Even after you’ve completed treatment, it is essential to maintain proactive habits to keep your smile looking amazing. Wearing your clear retainer aligners regularly will preserve the position of your teeth and smile.

The Latest Technology

Innovations in Orthodontic technology are moving rapidly, and Little Crown Orthodontics and Pediatric Dentistry vigilantly stay on top of new and cutting-edge tools and machines to offer the best possible treatment. Digital Radiographs and the iTero Scanner are just a couple of the amazing pieces of technology we use with our patients.

Meet Dr. Lauren Frisch

Your Orthodontist in Claremont, Sierra Madre, and South Pasadena

What we Believe

We believe that Life is about the people we meet and the happiness we share. We are passionate about people and so we accumulate relationships (not things!). We laugh often and smile more. Research even shows that smiling can make you happy. And happiness is contagious, in a good way. Life is short. Live your dream. Do what you love. For us, that just happens to be Orthodontics.


The American Association of Orthodontists recommends your little ones be screened around age 7 for developmental problems in the jaws and permanent teeth. Some problems are simply easier to correct and better for your child when treated early. Options at our Claremont Orthodontist and Sierra Madre Orthodontist locations include expanders, growth modification, and braces.


Early adolescence is the perfect time to start comprehensive orthodontic treatment. At Little Crown Orthodontics & Pediatric Dentistry, we believe in helping our patients build self-confidence. Our Claremont braces and Sierra Madre braces treatments include clear braces and metal braces. Our Claremont Invisalign Teen® and Sierra Madre Invisalign Teen® treatments help them achieve a confident smile without all the metal!


Our adults deserve an amazing smile too! Whether your teeth shifted after childhood braces or you’re ready for a full smile makeover, our team is here to help. Little Crown Orthodontics & Pediatric Dentistry’s adult Invisalign® treatment and adult braces utilizing clear braces are much more esthetic. Other Little Crown Orthodontics & Pediatric Dentistry adult patients are treated with active aligners and retainers.
