All About Lawrenceville, NJ
Lawrenceville was originally founded as Maidenhead in 1697 in the colony of West Jersey, named after the historic English town on the Thames River. The term originally meant “new wharf” until it acquired another meaning that made some inhabitants uncomfortable. Reverend Isaac Brown of the Presbyterian Church of Lawrenceville, founder of the Academy of Maidenhead (now Lawrenceville School) led a movement to change the town’s name.
They finally succeeded in 1816 and the village was renamed to its current name. George Washington’s troops marched through the village after multiple battles in the Revolutionary War, and British General Cornwallis stayed here overnight in John Moore’s Tavern, now a residential house on Main Street. He wasn’t a big fan of the town.
My Orthodontist Lawrenceville Location
We love serving the people of Lawrenceville and helping them achieve their properly aligned smile goals. Whether that means traditional metal braces to treat a complex orthodontic problem or low-profile clear aligners to treat something simpler, we can help. We also help patients who are in the retention phase of their treatment. Check this map if you need directions to our Lawrenceville location, or you can learn more about us on our business page.
If you aren’t sure which type of braces is best for your situation, we’re happy to help you find out at an initial consultation. We will determine what kind of treatment your smile will need. Traditional braces with metal wires and brackets are often still the best option for complex cases, but many patients are good candidates for treatment with clear ceramic braces, lingual braces, or Invisalign.
