What Sets Austin Heights Orthodontics Apart?

From the your first consultation until your treatment is complete, Dr. Couto's goal is to make you feel welcome and comfortable during each of your orthodontic appointments.

Our team will give you peace of mind.

Dr. Couto is a board certified orthodontic specialist. From diagnoses until your treatment is complete Dr. Couto will work with you to ensure you achieve the best possible treatment results. Her team of licensed registered dental assistants are here to help you achieve a straighter and healthier smile. 

We realize your time is valuable, so you can keep the rest of your life on schedule.

Our office uses the Doctor Time Scheduling system, to make sure we stay punctual and reduce wait times. We provide online access to your information, and appointment reminders via telephone, e-mail and text message. 

We are active in your community, because we live here, too!

Our team is actively involved in community service. Because of our proximity with many schools in our area, our team has a history of proven success in educating students about the importance of oral health. 

Our technology helps us to provide you with comfortable and effective treatment.

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.

The orthodontic appliances we use are always new.

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.

We are certified in Invisalign 'clear braces' technology, giving you a clear orthodontic option.

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.

Our convenient location and free parking makes it easy to get to your appointments.

We are centrally located in the heart of Coquitlam, on Austin Avenue, with ample free parking. 

We are committed to quality patient care.

For our younger patients, we provide contests and rewards to add to the enjoyment of orthodontic treatment. We send regular progress records of your treatment to help your dentists further customize your dental care.

We are friendly... and our office is comfortable.

From the very first visit to our office, it is evident that Dr. Couto and her staff strive to provide 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. 

Your preliminary consultation focuses completely on your personal situation and needs.

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. 

And your treatment plan is customized for you, and you only.

“Braces are braces! ... Right? ... Wrong!” Every patient's orthodontic treatment is based on an individualized treatment plan developed by our team. Our practice's patient management system concentrates on smart technology (including low-radiation, e-mail capable digital X-rays) and patient-centered aesthetics. Our success in achieving desired 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.
