About Our Practice

At the practice of Dr. Jim MacAlpine, we create healthy, beautiful smiles for everyone in the family. Our office is child-friendly and we strive to make your child’s visit stress-free. We offer an orthodontic treatment incentive program to encourage children to keep their teeth healthy and to stick to their orthodontic treatment plans. Our friendly and highly skilled orthodontist, Jim MacAlpine, D.D.S., M.S. can create a treatment and prevention plan to keep the teeth of everyone in the family healthy and beautiful.

We have a policy of non-extraction: we won’t pull teeth unless it is absolutely necessary. We often receive calls from patients who have been told by other dentists that they need a tooth pulled, and in most cases, we are able to save the tooth.

Our orthodontics program reflects our dedication to prevention. Jim MacAlpine, D.D.S., M.S. uses early orthodontics to reduce or eliminate the need for your child to have braces or surgery to correct bite problems later in life. Dr. MacAlpine believes it is never too late to improve your smile, and often creates orthodontics plans for his adult patients throughout Asheville, and surrounding communities. You’ll appreciate our variety of options in orthodontics, including clear braces, Invisalign® invisible braces, and mini retainers. Children will love our brightly colored elastics.
