Dr. Michael H. Payne

Creating Smiles that Change Lives

“When I was in college, I spent a great deal of time evaluating different careers from engineering to computer science. I returned to the original suggestion of medicine and concluded that dentistry would be the best fit for my interests and abilities. I have always enjoyed mechanics and helping people. I spent eight years as a general dentist on active duty in the United States Air Force attaining the rank of Major. During those eight years, I had the opportunity to practice within all the specialties and selected my favorite, orthodontics. This provides the most challenge and favorable interaction with patients.”


Invisalign® Clear Aligners

Straighten teeth just as effectively as traditional braces without metal wires or elastics.

Early Treatment and Intervention

The American Association of orthodontists recommends that children have their first orthodontic exam at age 7 when their first adult teeth (secondary teeth) begin to appear.

Teen Orthodontics

The field of teen orthodontics has come a long way! Dr. Payne offers the most advanced orthodontic treatment options and technology in the greater Sacramento, CA area, including Invisalign Teen®.

Adult Orthodontics

Straighten teeth without the appearance of metal braces using Invisalign, clear ceramic braces and self-ligating brackets.

TMD Treatment

Jaw pain, difficulty chewing and “popping” or clicking noises from the temporomandibular jaw joint can be corrected with the right treatment.

Orthognathic Surgery Orthodontics

Treats and corrects abnormalities of the facial bones, specifically the jaws and the teeth. Often, these abnormalities (such as overbite) cause difficulty chewing, talking and sleeping. In conjunction with orthodontic treatment, can improve the overall facial profile.
