need to see what your smile could look like after braces or Invisalign. Guess what? You can do that! Did you know we actually have a scanner in our office that gives you before and after images of your smile before you even get braces? It’s a really cool piece of technology called the iTero scanner. If you were one of the first people waiting in line when the new iPhone came out, we know how you feel. We’re always on the lookout for technology that will not only improve the work we do, but that will also make your experience at our office better. That’s why we knew we needed an iTero scanner. iTero is an intraoral scanner that can take images of your mouth before braces or Invisalign, and actually project what your results will be like after those orthodontic treatments. "You may need to see what your smile could look like after braces or Invisalign. Guess what? You can do that!" Using a wand — it looks a bit like a large toothbrush and has a camera at the end — our staff scan your teeth to take images of your smile. On a built-in screen right in front of you, you can see 360-degree images of what your teeth look like now. Then the system projects what they could look like after braces or Invisalign. Not only is iTero incredible for its powerful images, it ensures a better fit for Invisalign users. We’re able to use iTero’s digital impressions system to create molds, so you no longer have to deal with the bulky molds that make your mouth feel like it’s full of glue. With the precise wand and state-of-the-art technology, you get a better fit that can help give you better results. If you’re contemplating braces, but not quite ready to make the commitment, come check out iTero for yourself and see why we’re so excited about it. You’ll be able to see the before-and-after images from a quick scan. You might even discover a whole new smile waiting for you.

When I was in dental school in Illinois, I chose to be one of the few students to specialize in pediatric dentistry. Afterwards, I practiced for two years before going to orthodontics school. Early in my practice, I noticed two groups of people who were being underserved: children and adults who’d never had orthodontic care. I thought, “I want to help show these two groups of people the confidence orthodontic treatment can give them.” I knew it was my calling to share that with the world.

It still is, and it’s why I love this work.

Sometimes, parents ask me whether orthodontic treatment for their child is necessary. Is it a functional fix, something they need, or is it just a cosmetic fix? The answer is almost always both. I’ve shared with you the overwhelming transformations people experience when they have orthodontic treatment. You may have seen that transformation in yourself or in a loved one. But if you’re still thinking about treatment, still looking at your smile and wondering if it’s worth the investment, you might need a clearer picture. You may
