About Us

Advanced Technology

LightForce Braces

 

LightForce braces provide a superior orthodontic experience through the use of advanced 3D printing technology. Similar to clear aligner treatments, the process begins with a precise digital scan of the teeth and mouth. This scan allows advanced software to design brackets that fit each tooth perfectly and are custom-made to move each tooth into its correct position.

Unlike traditional one-size-fits-all braces, LightForce brackets are tailored to the individual’s unique dental structure. This high level of customization enables teeth to be moved more efficiently, potentially shortening treatment times and reducing the number of necessary office visits. The personalized fit of LightForce braces ensures that teeth are guided into the exact position required for optimal results.

Additionally, LightForce brackets are less noticeable, blending seamlessly with natural teeth. This makes them a discreet and aesthetically pleasing option for those seeking effective orthodontic solutions. Overall, LightForce braces represent a significant advancement in orthodontics, providing tailored, comfortable, and efficient treatment that surpasses traditional methods.

3M Clarity Aligners

 

3M Clarity Aligners offer a cutting-edge approach to orthodontic treatment, leveraging decades of expertise in plastic manufacturing. Unlike other aligner systems, 3M utilizes two proprietary plastics with different levels of rigidity, allowing for more precise and effective tooth movement. This advanced material technology enables Clarity Aligners to address a wider range of alignment issues, making them a versatile choice for patients seeking comprehensive orthodontic care.

3M Clarity Aligners are only available through certified orthodontists. This ensures that patients are treated by highly trained professionals who specialize in orthodontics. By restricting the use of their aligners to these experts, 3M ensures that patients receive top-quality care, maximizing the effectiveness of their treatment.

3M Clarity Aligners can be integrated with other orthodontic treatments, such as braces to tackle more complex alignment issues. This versatility is particularly beneficial for patients with severe misalignments, offering a comprehensive solution that other aligner systems may not accommodate.

Dental Monitoring

 

This innovative system uses AI,  propritary hardware along with your cell phone and the Dental Monitoring app to allow patients to scan their teeth and send the images to our office for review in between appointments. This technology enables us to monitor patients between appointments, creating flexibility for in-person visits and allows us to spot potential issues before they become significant problems. With photo time-lapse technology, we can visibly track treatment progress towards the desired outcome. Additionally, this system provides accountability, ensuring that treatment stays on track with fewer office visits needed helping to finish treatment on time or potentially early.

3M Victory Braces

 

We still offer tradition metal braces. 
Modern metal brackets are smaller and less noticeable than the notorious “train track” braces that many adults remember. We use 3M Victory Low Profile Brackets, which are one of the best on the market.

HAPPY PATIENTS

I can honestly say that I wouldn't have gone through this process without Dr. Dennis.  She has been un-phased by my complicated dental needs.  Her knowledge, skill and organization have been beyond valuable to me and the entire team involved.  Thank you for being an amazing point person.  My smile will remind me of your fabulous work from many years to come.

Bridget - Adult Surgery Patient

Braces are not bad at all. I loved mine, and didn’t want to get mine off. I had the regular braces, not Invisalign. I loved the rubber bands and the colors

The entire team at Dr. Dennis' office is SUPERB!  Professional, clear communications and frankly just pleasant.  I looked forward to every visit and never felt I was being "up sold" on anything and always felt like I was a top priority when I was in the office.  Plus above all - my teeth look phenomenal !!  They delivered everything they promised and more.  I would recommend to anyone need dental care!
