A peaceful oasis of professionalism and friendliness. Pro-tip: come here if you think you may have gotten some bad advice from another orthodontist. She will tell it to you straight,and work very hard to make things right for you.
Traditional braces effectively straighten teeth using metal and wires attached to the front of teeth. Theyre a safe, reliable, cost-effective, and time-tested way to create a healthier and more beautiful smile.
Once your braces are on, you visit your orthodontist every 6-8 weeks for an adjustment that gradually shifts your teeth to the desired position. Todays traditional braces are much lighter, less visible, and more comfortable than metal braces of the past.
Clear ceramic braces are the evolution of traditional metal braces with a more discreet appearance. The front brackets utilize translucent ceramic instead of metal which blends well with your natural tooth color.
Incognito lingual braces are the most discreet option for straightening your teeth with braces. While they take extra time to get used to, they are great for anyone who wants to straighten their teeth effectively without the visible metal.
Instead of being placed on the front of teeth, these types of braces are attached to the tongue side of teeth, and we adjust them every few weeks. These virtually invisible braces work just like traditional metal braces, but nobody has to know about them except you.

A custom-fit retainer helps maintain your teeth and jaw in the correct position following your braces treatment. Well let you know how often to wear it, but its especially important to wear it full-time right after treatment and then transition into night-time wear.
At Hillcrest Orthodontics, we believe everyone deserves a healthy and beautiful smile. Our orthodontist customizes treatments based on your needs, goals, and budget. She uses clear aligners or braces treat:
Dr. Charles L. Chambliss started his Mobile, AL practice after completing the orthodontic residency program at the University of Alabama School of Dentistry. The first office was located on Monterey Street, just off of Government Street.
Orthodontist Dr. Chambliss stayed at the Monterey Street location until 1965 and built an office on Beltline Highway named Dr. Charles L. Chambliss, D.M.D. He also began a satellite practice in Brewton, AL, to offer more convenience for patients.
Dr. J. Russell Goodloe, Jr. began to practice with Dr. Chambliss, and the new practice name became Drs. Chambliss and Goodloe, DMD, PC. This same year, Dr. Goodloe began a satellite practice in Jackson, AL, expanding the teams reach.
Dr. Rosalyn Salter joined the practice, built by Dr. Chambliss and Dr. Goodloe, who practiced together from 1970 until 1991. Dr. Chambliss retired two years later, and the practice name changed to Drs. Goodloe and Salter, DMD, PC. signifying a new partnership.
The practice moved from Beltline Highway to the present location on Hillcrest Road. We renamed the practice Hillcrest Orthodontics, PC. Dr. Goodloe retired in 2008, and Dr. Salter continues the practice today as a solo orthodontist in Mobile with a satellite practice in Brewton.
Hillcrest Orthodontics continues to provide excellent orthodontic treatment for thousands of patients, many of whom are now friends and bring in their children for dental care. Were honored to positively impact so many lives in the Brewton and Mobile, AL area with orthodontics for kids and adults.
Dr. Salter has taken care of both of my children, and the results have been fantastic! Everything is explained upfront, and there are no surprises. She and her staff are very caring and professional. I highly recommend her practice if you are considering orthodontics.
