Braces + Invisalign Experts in Billings & Miles City
Get in Touch With Kovacs Orthodontics
We proudly serve patients of all ages from Eastern Montana and Northern Wyoming. Our Kovacs Orthodontics team is ready to talk with you about your questions or concerns, so here’s how to contact us.
Scheduling & Appointments
We make every effort to minimize missing school, but unfortunately, the nature of orthodontic treatment will require our school-age patients to occasionally miss school.
Like all orthodontic practices, we cannot see all our patients between 3:00-5:00pm. To be fair as we can, your appointments will be scheduled alternating between school and after-school hours.
A Trusted Orthodontist in Billings & Miles City

Not only is he passionate about providing the best orthodontic treatment, he also loves giving back to the youth of the community!
Dr. Kovacs attended California State University, Northridge, and ultimately earned his Doctor of Dental Surgery degree at the University of the Pacific. From there, a post-graduate residency at the University of the Pacific allowed him to develop a greater expertise in orthodontic treatment.
Dr. Kovacs is happily married to his wife Darcy, and together they have four children- Taylor, Shay, Ben, and Jake. Dr. Kovacs’ first love is spending time outdoors with his family enjoying the great state of Montana.
Braces in Billings and Miles City are an excellent choice for correcting complex tooth issues. Since they can sometimes work faster at aligning teeth and closing gaps than other treatments might, overall treatment time may be slightly reduced. Braces don’t require some of the more complex technology or expensive equipment that newer treatments can, meaning braces with Kovacs Orthodontics are a cost-effective orthodontic option.
Traditional metal braces are one of the most efficient orthodontic tools we have. They’re made out of metal or ceramic brackets that are affixed to the teeth, then connected by wires and tiny rubber bands or elastics. These brackets, wires, and bands work together to apply the gentle pressure that will gradually move the teeth into the positions we want them to be in as long as you have regular adjustments with our doctors.
Invisalign is incredibly popular with both patients and orthodontists in Billings and Miles City and is the top alternative to traditional braces. Instead of brackets and bands, the Invisalign system uses a series of clear, removable aligners to gradually straighten your teeth.
Invisalign aligners are made of a comfortable plastic material and customized to fit snugly over your teeth. To keep your teeth moving in the direction you want them to, you’ll need to switch your invisible trays out for the next one in the series every 1-2 weeks as directed by Dr. Kovacs. The Invisalign system can only work if the recommended guidelines are followed exactly! Aligners should be worn 20-22 hours per day throughout treatment. If patients neglect to wear the aligners as directed, it can impede the results and also add time to the orthodontic process.
Invisalign is at its most efficient when correcting many of the most common orthodontic issues. For some complex cases, Invisalign may not be a good option. A free consultation with Dr. Kovacs at Kovacs Orthodontics in Billings and Miles City will allow us to determine your eligibility for Invisalign.
