We strongly believe that everyone should love their smile. Orthodontics is a great way to increase self-confidence, improve dental health and create a smile to be proud of.
At your first visit, Dr. Doulaverakis provides a consultation that includes a comprehensive clinical evaluation and diagnosis FREE of charge. If an x-ray is required to make a diagnosis, this too will be done free of charge to you. A detailed discussion of your concerns and all treatment options, duration of treatment and cost breakdown is also provided. Our flexible payment plans make orthodontics attainable for most patients and families.
Maintaining patient comfort at all times is always Dr. Doulaverakis' priority. She takes advantage of the latest technologies and research to minimize the need for extraction of permanent teeth and the use of headgear.
Dr. Doulaverakis encourages questions from both the patient and their parents (when the patient is a minor).
If treatment is called for, we can begin the treatment process by taking full diagnostic records (panoramic and cephalometric x-rays, intra-oral scan and photographs) that same day.
Every patient leaves feeling confident that their needs are being met and that they received the highest quality service available.

Be sure to hand this in to the front desk when you sign-in.
The frequency of patient visits depends on a number of factors. But in general, appointments are spaced anywhere from eight to ten weeks apart during active treatment.
There is probably no other area of health care that requires patient-doctor cooperation to the extent that orthodontics does. As such, Dr. Doulaverakis fosters a partnership with her patients and their parents.
"Obtaining a terrific smile takes teamwork, and I try to emphasize this with each patient," she says. "We get winning results when the appliances I place are cared for as instructed. If the patient keeps all their appointments and maintains good oral hygiene throughout treatment, there's nothing to stop us from obtaining our desired results on time and on budget!"
With weekday and Saturday hours, patients find it easy to fit in regular orthodontic visits into their busy schedules. Patients are asked to make every effort to keep their appointments. Missing scheduled appointments can disrupt and prolong treatment.
