Welcome to Explore Orthodontics!

At Explore Orthodontics, our goal is to help you achieve the smile you deserve – a natural, healthy and beautiful one! Dr. Kay D. Daniel and her experienced team will work closely with you to develop a custom treatment plan that is best suited for your orthodontic needs. We are proud to also offer snoring and sleep apnea treatment with a variety of dental appliances.

With three convenient office locations in Slidell, Mandeville and New Orleans, Louisiana, you have the flexibility to be seen at any or all, whichever is best for your busy schedule. Dr. Kay strives to make orthodontics fun and enjoyable for both her adult and younger patients. She surrounds herself with a caring staff that is eager to make your experience pleasurable. We know your time is valuable. Therefore we have tailored our schedule to accommodate our patients and keep wait times to a minimum.

Let Us Give You a Beautiful Smile

Dr. Kay recognizes that the needs of our patients are ever-changing. We offer a wide range of treatment options, including clear ceramic braces, Invisalign® clear aligners and the Damon® System. Dr. Kay is one of only a few orthodontists to utilize the Damon 3 bracket system of braces in our area. These brackets take advantage of the highest technology available, often reducing the need for extractions or additional appliances, which makes treatment more comfortable and maybe less time in braces!

Sleep Apnea Treatment

Because the overall health of our patients is our main priority, Dr. Kay has incorporated treatment for mild to moderate sleep obstructive breathing (sleep apnea/snoring). Sleep disordered breathing is a cause for serious concern! It affects as much as 20% of adults, and most go without treatment which can lead to severe health problems, such as high blood pressure, diabetes, obesity, heart disease, stroke, acid reflux, anxiety, and depression.

Dr. Kay treats sleep apnea using oral appliances that are comfortable to wear, easy to travel with and won't limit sleep positions. If you or someone you love has a snoring problem, an at-home sleep study can be ordered to evaluate the risk. We can work with most medical insurance companies so there may be minimal out-of-pocket expense.

Thank you for visiting and exploring our website! If you have any questions about our practice, please contact us. We are always eager to answer your questions during your journey to "Discover Your Smile!"
