Over the years, orthodontic technology continually evolves, giving you more treatment options, making appliances more comfortable and shortening treatment duration. Our practice offers digital X-rays, which reduce radiation exposure by 70 percent and produces immediate image results.
For your protection and to ensure excellent results, we never use recycled braces. Plus, to ensure your safety, we use an advanced sterilization system, as recommended by the Canadian Dental Association.
The Invisalign solution straightens your teeth without the use of wires or brackets by using a series of clear, customized aligners. Our team has years of Invisalign experience, with 1,000's of happy patients.

From the very first visit to our office, it is evident that Dr. Couto and her staff strive to provide superior treatment in a pleasant, friendly atmosphere. Video games and wireless Internet access in the reception area create an environment in which kids can be kids, and adults can stay connected to their office or home.
Prior to beginning treatment, patients and parents visit the office for a consultation appointment. Your consultation will be conducted personally by Dr. Couto and will provide an opportunity for questions regarding the type and duration of treatment, as well as other important information.
“Braces are braces! ... Right? ... Wrong!” Every patient's orthodontic treatment is based on an individualized treatment plan developed by our team. Our practice's unique patient management system concentrates on smart technology (including low-radiation, e-mail capable digital X-rays) and patient-centered aesthetics. Our success in achieving excellent treatment results, with an appointment sequence that is convenient for patients, means local dentists, their staff and their families select our office for their treatment. We are appreciative of their trust and confidence in us, and committed to continually delivering this level of quality.
