A Warm passion for smiles

It has been Dr. Hicks’s goal to open an orthodontic practice where the key focus is the patient.

Born and raised in East Saint Louis, IL., Dr. Hicks graduated high school and attended Fisk University in Nashville, TN and received a BS in 1982.  Upon graduation, he attended Meharry Medical College, School of Dentistry, where he received his Doctor of Dental Surgery in 1986.  Following graduation, Dr. Hicks completed his residency program in emergency dentistry at Montefiore Hospital in Bronx, NY in 1987. Dr. Hicks decided to pursue a career in orthodontics after training in TMJ, obstructive sleep apnea and facial abnormality.  He completed his orthodontic residency program in June of 1989 and moved to Texas in 1991. Dr. Hicks is a member of the American Association of Orthodontics.

Today more and more adults realize the importance of making a first impression, and that begins with your smile. Orthodontic treatment is also now more affordable than ever, with little to no discomfort and shorter treatment times.

Once orthodontic treatment is complete, we offer teeth whitening that adds that little extra touch to give you the smile of your dreams.
Temporomandibular Joint (TMJ) Dysfunction
TMJ is a jaw condition that is extremely painful and that many suffer from on a daily basis.
Propel Orthodontics
Technological advances allow us to make corrections in half the time than it would have taken just 10 years ago with Invisalign. We can use smaller less noticeable braces and techniques like propel orthodontics.
Invisalign Teen
We recommend that every child see a dentist and orthodontist by age 7 or 8.

On Your
First Visit

We take a CT scan, which gives us a more detailed view of your dental needs. We do a complete examination of not only your teeth but also bone and soft tissue. We will give you our best advice on how to correct your problem with compassion and with your best interest in mind.

Easy financing is available because no one payment plan fits everyone. Just speak with our financial advisor and decide what works best for you.

How much do braces or Invisalign cost?

Each patient is different, but we can work out a payment plan that best fits you. Affordability is key and at New Image Orthodontics, our promise to you is to make it affordable.

How long will I be in braces?

That will depend on what your individual problem is and what it may take to fix it. The average patient is in braces for 18-24 months.

Does it hurt?

We don’t use needles, but some patients will feel a slight soreness at the beginning of treatment, but this discomfort tends to go away in a few days and with subsequent visits.
