What Sets Us Apart

We know that choosing an orthodontist is a very personal decision. Many orthodontic offices are in Columbia and various treatment options available to you. Here are just a few details about our office that describe what sets us apart.

Excellence in Orthodontics

We provide our patients with the highest quality of orthodontic care in a personal, professional environment. Getting to know you and meeting your individual orthodontic needs are our foremost concerns.

  • Dr. Park has been paid the highest compliment by numerous area dentists who have entrusted her to treat members of their own families.
  • Dr. Park is certified by the American Board of Orthodontics.

Innovative Technology

Our office is technologically advanced in the field of orthodontics. At Markin & Park Orthodontics, we use the most advanced self-ligating bracket systems (Damon™ and GAC) along with the most sophisticated wire technology.

We Utilize Damon™ Smile

Damon Smile is a new and exciting treatment modality in orthodontics. It is more than just a different type of braces.

In the past, orthodontists would use heavy forces to move the teeth. Damon Smile 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 Damon Smile in the following ways:

  • Often, permanent teeth do not need to be removed.
  • Treatment is much gentler because of the archwire technology coupled with low friction.
  • Appointments are typically eight to ten weeks apart, which means you miss less school and work!
  • Most appointments are easier and quicker.
  • Damon braces are more hygienic because there are no latex ligatures on the appliance, and that makes them easier to clean!

Meticulous Sterilization

Our patients can be assured that we follow all the OSHA guidelines for sterilization.

Enhanced Web Services

Through our web services, our patients have the option to receive e-mail appointment reminders, check their appointment times online, 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 and 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.
