Welcome to Grabow Orthodontics!

Thank you for visiting the website of James A. Grabow, D.D.S., M.S., an orthodontic specialist committed to creating beautiful, confident smiles throughout Tuolumne and Calaveras Counties. We understand how important a straight, beautiful smile is, which is why we offer the following to give you the smile of your dreams:

Orthopedic Growth Modification

Growth modification is part of the first phase of orthodontic treatment, and it is only possible while bones are still growing. We utilize growth modification appliances (for example: Twin Block and palatal expanders) to change the position, shape, length, or width of the jawbone while children are still growing.


A modern alternative to traditional metal braces, the Invisalign system straightens teeth using a series of customized, clear plastic appliances called aligners.

Orthognathic Surgery

To treat abnormalities of the facial bones, which can cause pain and difficulty eating, speaking and sleeping, we sometimes recommend orthognathic surgery, also known as corrective jaw surgery.

At Grabow Orthodontics, your smile is our top priority! We are delighted to provide you the compassionate, personalized care you deserve at each visit.




We never want costs to stand in the way of quality orthodontic treatment which is why we are dedicated to providing care that is both effective and affordable. We understand that every family has unique financial needs, and we are happy to offer savings to our patients.Learn More about SAVINGS
