  • We Utilize the Damon System™: The Damon System™ is a new and exciting treatment modality in orthodontics. It is more than just a different type of brace. In the past, orthodontists would use heavy forces to move the teeth. The Damon System™ utilizes light forces and low friction to move teeth faster and more gently than ever before. The results are outstanding. The patients in our office benefit from our use of the Damon System™ in the following ways:

    • Often, permanent teeth do not need to be removed
    • Treatment is much gentler because of the arch wire technology coupled with low friction
    • Appointments are typically 8 to 10 weeks apart, this means you miss less school and work!
    • Most appointments are easier and quicker
    • The Damon braces are more hygienic because there are no latex ligatures on the appliance, making them easier to clean!

  • Meticulous Sterilization: Our patients can be assured that we follow all of the OSHA guidelines for sterilization techniques.
  • Enhanced WEB Services: Through our WEB services, our patients have the option to receive e-mail appointment reminders, check their appointment times on-line, review their account information, and receive our monthly newsletter. This WEB service is available 24/7, and is a convenient way for our patients to stay connected to our office from home!
  • Retainer Designs: When the braces come off, our patients have the option to choose one of many fun designs for their retainers. Whether your retainer has polka dots or zebra stripes, or is simply your favorite color, it will show your individualism!
  • Contests & Cool Prizes: We do everything we can to make your orthodontic experience fun and exciting. At Markin & Park Orthodontics, there is always a contest to enter and a prize up for grabs! Whether it’s “Send us a vacation picture”, or “How many snowflakes can you count in our office?” we make it fun! We also give rewards for good grades in school and we offer a SAT prep course for juniors in High School.
  • Superior Customer Service:. Orthodontic treatment is a long term, on-going process. Knowing this, we strive to make your orthodontic treatment in our office a positive experience. We believe that the “patient always comes first”! Getting to know you and meeting your individual orthodontic needs are our foremost concerns.
