SOMETIMES, WE’RE  GUILTY OF ASSUMING TOO MUCH, RIGHT?

So we asked her a few questions to help you all get to know her...

I started working as an orthodontic assistant as a senior in high school.

What’s your favorite thing to do when you’re not at work?

Why Choose An AAO Orthodontist?

July 17th, 2018

YOU DESERVE A SMILE that reflects your best possible you, which is why you deserve an orthodontist who is a member of the American Association of Orthodontists (AAO), like Dr. Sheehan.

It takes three additional years of specialized study beyond dental school to become an orthodontist. Those extra years are what make us experts in straightening teeth and correcting bites to give our patients healthy, beautiful smiles, and only dentists who complete them are eligible to become members of the AAO.

What Is The AAO?
Founded in 1900, the American Association of Orthodontists is the world’s oldest and largest dental specialty organization. The AAO’s purpose is to help prospective patients understand the value and benefits of properly aligned teeth, as well as to provide resources to its members so that they can give patients the best care possible. Because (the head of our team) is an AAO member, you can be sure that the orthodontic treatment you receive at our practice is held to the highest standards of ethics, quality, and appearance.

It’s All For You
Our first priority is our patients’ health and ensuring good outcomes from orthodontic treatment. We’re always willing to go above and beyond to make sure we’re providing the very best care for every patient who comes through our practice!

As an AAO member, Dr. Sheehan is constantly improving his skills and looking for ways to serve you better. Any extra effort is worth it, because you deserve to have the smile of your dreams.

Thank you for choosing our practice!

See What Invisalign® Can Do For Your Smile

July 11th, 2018

IF YOU WANTED TO STRAIGHTEN your teeth back in the day, you really only had one option–traditional metal braces. Nowadays, our patients have a variety of different options when it comes to how they would like to have their teeth straightened and what is most convenient for them. At our office, we offer Invisalign®!

Invisalign Treatment Provides Many Benefits
Not everyone is a good candidate for Invisalign, but if you are, it may be a great option to achieve your dream smile!

As the name implies, Invisalign trays are nearly invisible, allowing you to go throughout your daily activities with most people being unaware that you are undergoing orthodontic treatment! The aligners are custom-made for you, ensuring a perfect, comfortable fit.

Of course one of the best perks of choosing Invisalign is being able to eat whatever you want! Because you can take your aligners off while eating and drinking, you don’t have to worry about staying away from the foods that you love. Invisalign trays also don’t affect your oral hygiene routine like traditional braces do. You can brush and floss as you normally would!

You also won’t have to worry about getting used to metal brackets that may cut into your cheeks and lips at the beginning of treatment or during sporting events. With Invisalign, you don’t have to sacrifice comfort to get the smile you’ve always wanted.

As an Invisalign patient, you’ll generally have less office visits than those with traditional braces. So if you have a busy schedule but still want to improve your smile, Invisalign might be just the thing for you!
