We make it easy by making your consultation free.

Your first appointment with Tardy Orthodontics is easy and FREE. Simply call our office at 817-453-8826 to schedule your complimentary consultation at our Mansfield, TX or North Richland Hills, TX office. Our North Richland Hills office is just a few blocks from the Cities of Keller and Colleyville and less than 2 miles from Southlake, TX. Once your consultation is scheduled, we will send you a welcome packet with information about orthodontics as well as a dental/medical history form. Please fill out the appropriate forms before your first visit. We know that your time is valuable and this will help us keep your first visit short and sweet.


The first step is to schedule an appointment for your complimentary smile consultation by filling out our request form or by giving us a call at 817-453-8826. We look forward to assisting you on your path to a beautiful and confident smile. 


On your first visit, our experienced team will give you a tour of the office, perform a panoramic x-ray and take a series of dental photographs. These images assist us in diagnosis and treatment recommendations, but also allows us to use them to explain our treatment solutions.  


With more than 30 years combined experience, Drs. Tardy are experts in dental alignment and bite correction. On your first visit, they will complete an oral exam, discuss with you whether or not it’s time to start orthodontic treatment and help you decide what course of action is best for you. 



We offer same day starts if you would like to begin treatment after meeting with one of our board-certified specialists. Your time is valuable and we know that rescheduling can be difficult with today’s busy families. Since Tardy Orthodontics and you have already reserved time for this important meeting, it makes sense to offer same day care if you need treatment and feel comfortable moving forward. We will help advise you on the best treatment option for your situation.
