About the Doctors

What We Do

At Tardy Orthodontics, we believe that everyone deserves to smile confidently regardless of their age. Whether you’re young or just young at heart, we offer several options to fit your lifestyle and help you find your perfect smile.


Conditions We Treat

  • underbite
  • Overjet

    Overjet is when the upper front teeth or jaw is excessively ahead of the lower teeth. This condition may be the result of poorly aligned teeth or poor jaw alignment. This can lead to an inadequate ability to chew foods and lead to excessive tooth wear on the back teeth.

  • underbite
  • Crossbite

    Crossbite can occur when the upper and lower teeth or jaws are misaligned. It causes one or more upper teeth to bite on the inside of the lower teeth. This can cause wear of the teeth and/or asymmetrical growth.

  • underbite
  • Underbite

    Underbite can occur when the lower teeth protrude past the upper front teeth. This can prevent the normal function of the front teeth and cause excessive wear on the remaining teeth. It can also cause painful jaws and joint problems.

  • underbite
  • Crowding

    Teeth crowding occurs when there is simply a lack of room within your jaw. When left untreated, overly crowded teeth can get worse. Dental crowding can make cleaning difficult and lead to plaque accumulation and tooth decay.

Mansfield Family Orthodontist Specialist

Welcome to Tardy Orthodontics, home to leading Mansfield family orthodontist specialist Dr. Tardy. Our team works tirelessly to help our patients — which consist of adults, teens and children — meet their dental needs.

We know problems with your teeth can lead to diminished self-confidence. Tardy Orthodontics has worked with a wide range of adults and teens that have dreaded social situations because they feared someone would judge their teeth.

At Tardy Orthodontics, we effectively correct a wide range of alignment and spacing issues, in addition to many other oral health needs. For instance, as your family orthodontist specialist in Mansfield TX, we can treat:

  • Space and gaps between teeth
  • Crowding
  • Over bite
  • Under bite
  • Deep bite
  • Cross bite
  • Missing teeth
  • Impacted teeth
  • And more

Many adults and teens are hesitant to seek out treatment because they are afraid to sport braces, expanders or retainers in their mouths. At Tardy Orthodontics, we understand this concern and we offer a wide range of cutting-edge treatment methods that are effective yet discrete.

A Mansfield Invisalign specialist
As a trusted Invisalign specialist in Mansfield TX, we offer this treatment to our adult and teenaged patients. Invisalign is a lot like braces, but consists of removable, clear aligners, that are worn almost like a small mouthpiece that goes over your teeth.

These aligners slowly but surely shift your teeth to correct alignment and spacing. As a Mansfield Invisalign specialist, we can administer an examination of your teeth and let you know if you are a suitable candidate for these treatments.

A Mansfield family orthodontist specialist for braces
Tardy Orthodontics also offers traditional metal braces and invisible ceramic braces. These are not like the old, outdated braces of the past. As a cutting-edge family braces orthodontist in Mansfield TX, we utilize small braces that are constructed of durable smooth materials that effectively shift your teeth with little to no discomfort.

With these corrective measures, your Mansfield family braces orthodontist is able to eliminate alignment and spacing issues and leave you with a straight smile that will give you your confidence back.

Are you not happy with your smile? Schedule a consultation
Whether you are an adult that is unhappy with your smile or you want to make sure your child develops straight, healthy teeth as they grow, Dr. Tardy would love to meet with you.

All consultations include X-rays and a thorough examination. Dr. Tardy will show you any issues that might be hurting your smile or overall oral health and explore ways to fix those problems. Get insight from the top Mansfield family orthodontist specialist in the industry. Call to make your appointment.

I went to Dr. Tardy when I was maybe 10 years old and now as I'm older I see the wonders that she has done for me and... my smile. If you ever need braces or anything in that area, Dr. Tardy should be the first option. She cares so much about each patient that she has and goes above and beyond to give each kid a beautiful smile. The staff is so nice and even though I haven't been there in years I have nothing but good memories from when I was going regularly. Dr. Tardy's work is unmatched and she has given me so much confidence in my smile, she is the person to go to if your kid ever needs braces!read more
