SureSmile in the news again!

SureSmile, the robotic technology we've discussed so much in the past couple of months, was at it again this past week, featured not only on CNN, but on NBC Tuesday night. The segment featured 13-year-old Olivia, who had traditional braces for eight months before discovering the magic of SureSmile orthodontic treatment. Thanks to SureSmile, Olivia will be out of braces in just 14 months!

With regular braces, most patients are in treatment for up to 28 months, and make about 20 visits to Orchin Orthodontics. With SureSmile, however, you can be out of braces in 14 months and only 12- to 14 office visits!

Give us a call at (202) 686-5100 and ask our team about our SureSmile offer! We hope you have a fun and relaxing Memorial Day weekend!

SureSmile works its magic on CNN! From Dr. Orchin

At Orchin Orthodontics, we love working with SureSmile, robotic wires that are revolutionizing the orthodontic industry. SureSmile, which combines digital 3-D imaging, has computer-aided treatment planning and customized archwires to straighten teeth about 40 percent faster than traditional braces.

This week, CNN's Dr. Sanjay Gupta filed a short report on SureSmile, which is becoming quite popular with our patients. In fact, our SureSmile offer – we upgrade you to SureSmile from traditional braces – is almost booked up! We only have THREE slots left for a $500 upgrade to SureSmile, before treatment prices increase.

With SureSmile, getting braces sure isn’t what it used to be. Dr. Orchin's patients get fantastic results in less time with this remarkable technology and typically spend less time in braces, need fewer office visits, experience less discomfort and ultimately greater results.

We encourage you to check out the above SureSmile video and let us know what you think! Give us a call at (202) 686-5100!

Dr. Orchin wants to know: What should we blog about?

By now, you probably know how our blog process works: Week after week, Dr. Orchin and our creative staff blog about important topics pertinent to orthodontic care and your well-being, including innovative orthodontic techniques offered at Orchin Orthodontics.

Lastly, we'd like to wish a happy upcoming Mother's Day to all the wonderful moms who come to our office day after day. You all deserve more than just a day of recognition!!
