It is a common misconception to think that all dental offices are alike. That’s why people pick a dental office simply based on its proximity to their workplace or home. Or they may pick one charging the lowest rates.
At The Brace Place, we like to think our office is singularly unique and here’s why:
The head of our team is Dr. Lateefah Washington, who grew up in NYC. After completing her BA in Cornell University, she went on to the New Jersey Dental School where she graduated in the Top 10 of her class and was inducted into the OKU Dental Honor Society.
Dr. Washington then completed her MS and certificate in Orthodontics at the University of Minnesota, where she graduated in the top 5 of her class. She’s a member of the American Association of Orthodontists, Southwestern Association of Orthodontist, and the Texas Dental Association. She has been recognized as a Top Orthodontist by the Consumers’ Research Council of America and has been featured in Voyage Dallas magazine.
Dr. Washington has worked as an orthodontist for 10 years, making her a highly qualified and experienced orthodontist. She has treated more than a thousand orthodontic patients!
Our office is open before school and after work.
Our staff has over 30 years of combined orthodontic experience.
We are not a chain. Thus we do not have a high turnover of doctors or staff members. Our doctor is only at one location thus you do not need to travel miles out of your way if you had an emergency to see your doctor.
Our office provides orthodontic services for all ages. According to the American Association of Orthodontists, children should have their initial orthodontic evaluation before they turn 7 years old.
Our innovative techniques and state-of-the-art dental equipment ensure reduced patient discomfort, minimal anxiety and shorter treatment times. We make every effort to provide convenient appointment times that fit your busy schedule.
We offer invisible braces and behind the teeth braces to help patients feel less self-conscious about wearing braces. We also offer accelerated orthodontics that can reduce treatment time to under 6 months.
We also offer mouth guards for sports and mouth guards that keep you from grinding your teeth while you sleep.
Our goal is to make your visit an anxiety-free experience. We have Zen-like murals on the walls and comfy chairs with armrests in our lobby. Ahh…relax and enjoy!
On arrival, you’ll meet Chelsea at the front desk. Chelsea is our financial and treatment coordinator and always enjoys helping with any concerns and questions you may have.
Finally, we have a well-furnished sterilization area to make sure that all the tools we use are sterile and clean.
At Brace Place, we like to think of ourselves as more than just another dental clinic and look forward to sharing the experience with you!
