Brace Bus

Creating smiles since 1972

Carter Orthodontics is also known as “the Home of the Brace Bus.” Started in 1996, the Brace Bus has been approved by Columbia, Aiken and Edgefield County school systems, as well as several independent schools (See list below). With a parent’s signed consent, the Brace Bus will pick up patients from their respective schools, escort them to their orthodontic appointment and return them to school during school hours. Carter Orthodontics implemented the brace bus to decrease the amount of school children miss for appointments, as well as to help working parents miss less work. This service is provided at no charge for Carter Orthodontic patients.
