The wonderful staff at Just Orthodontics gave me something I never thought I could have-self confidence. Never happy with the way I looked, especially with my smile, I finally decided to get braces at age 19. Although nervous and unsure at first, at age 21, I couldn’t be happier with the way I look now. I love my smile, and I am actually not afraid to be in a picture! This will be one of the best investments I will ever make on my life, and I can’t thank Dr. Just and his team enough for all they have done for me. I really will have a life full of smiles. Thank you!
I love Just Orthodontics! The staff and Dr. make me feel so welcome and are very friendly. When I first had to get braces on I was a little nervous. But when I got there they explained everything they were going to do and always are very nice. A great place to go for anyone needing braces.
Highly recommended. We went to several orthodontists for evaluations and Dr. Just was the most reasonable, progressive and patient centered. Staff is friendly and appointments are on time and my kids enjoy going there. We had four other consultations from other orthodontists before selecting this one and we definitely made the best choice.
Dr. Just feels it’s important to have every child screened by an orthodontist at the age of 7 so a baseline understanding of their teeth can established. Many growth and bite problems can be minimized or eliminated at this age making treatment as a teenager less invasive.
A Smile For Me!
How Much Do Braces Cost?
Just Orthodontics understands how important it is for you and your family members to receive the orthodontic treatment that you need, so you have our pledge that we’ll do everything possible to make braces affordable for you. Our goal is always to arrive at a monthly payment that fits your budget, so please don’t stress about the cost. We’ve got you covered!
And here’s something important to consider. Before we quote any fees, Just Orthodontics always offers an initial consultation for FREE. This allows us to evaluate your bite and discuss our findings with you without obligating you to start treatment.
While there’s no standard price for braces because cases vary in time and complexity, an average case fee here at Just Orthodontics for clear or traditional metal braces is $3,600 -$6,500.
All fees are paid out over time with a minimum down payment and affordable monthly payments. If you choose to shop around, you’ll find that other orthodontists charge much more for the exact same superior products and service that you’ll receive at Just Orthodontics. Some charge over $8,000. At Just Orthodontics, we offer the finest products available at considerably less cost.
Just Orthodontics also offers finance plans with 0% interest, or if you want to lower your payments even further, we also offer longer term financing with interest. Also, be sure to ask us about family discounts and cash-up-front savings.
If you have dental insurance, we’ll help you get the maximum benefit allowable.
“The best part of being an orthodontist is the dramatic impact we have on the self-esteem of people as we give them that smile they’ve always dreamed of.”
For Dr. Just, orthodontics was a natural career choice. He practiced with his father, Dr.Harold Just, who practiced with his father Dr. William Just, right here on the lakeshore. The Just’s have been creating beautiful smiles on the lakeshore since 1919. In 1984, Dr. Jeff Just earned his Bachelor’s degree in Economics at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. He then attended Marquette University School of Dentistry (just like his grandfather) from which he received his Dental Degree in 1988. To be an orthodontist requires a of two additional years of training, which Dr. Just completed at the Northwestern Dental School in 1990. Dr. Just is a founding board member Healthy Teeth Healthy Communities of Manitowoc County; a charter member of the Manitowoc Sunrise Rotary Club and an Eagle Scout. Professionally he is a member of the American Wisconsin Dental Association, Wisconsin Society of Orthodontists, the Midwestern Society of Orthodontists, the American Association of Orthodontists, the Progressive Orthodontist Study Club and the Northeastern Wisconsin
Orthodontic Study Group which is believed to be one of the oldest orthodontic study clubs in the country.

On a personal note: Jeff has been married to his wife Sue for over 25 years and they have three sons; Braden, Ethan and Owen who occupy most of their free time. If Jeff hadn’t became an orthodontist he probably would be a tree forester. He has planted over 90,000 trees during the past 20 years as he continually develops his forest.
