“I wish everyone was as professional and as good with children as Dr. Paz. I can’t even count the hours shopping online for the right person for my family’s procedures. TOO MANY. I am glad I held out and decided on Dr. Paz. He’s the person at the end of every search you WISHED you’ve gotten instead of, for lack of better words, “inexperienced business owners”. Bravo Dr. Paz! I will continue doing what I should be doing anyway: recommending the best person for the job. Thank you from all of us :)”

“I took my daughter to 5 orthodontists for consultations and Dr. Paz was the 5th.  Thank goodness we picked him. He was recommended by an endodontist acquaintance.   Braces are expensive, period, but the prices at Dr. Paz’s are comparable to the other orthodontists.  My daughter has lingual braces on the top and clear ones on the bottom and you really can’t even see that she has braces.  My son has the regular metal ones.  Everyone  couldn’t be nicer.  Highly recommended.”

Hi-tech Braces in a Comfortable Atmosphere

The orthodontic systems used by our office include Lingual braces, self ligating braces and invisalign. These appliance choices offer cosmetic, life-style and financial options.

  • Lingual Braces are a customized system that utilizes 3D imagery to create precise brackets that fit the shape and contour of each tooth. Self-ligation is used for faster, frictionless, tooth movement.
  • Self Ligating Braces, The Damon System are a labial system that comes in both clear and silver and uses self-ligating mechanics. Modern self-ligation technology moves teeth faster, and with no friction, enabling us to achieve results that would not have been possible with traditional braces. Our goal is to create healthy, beautiful, broad, perfect smiles in the shortest time possible.
  • The Invisalign system is a custom-made series of clear aligners that move your teeth in a similar manner to braces. They are computer analyzed and created with exact calculations to gradually shift your teeth into place.

Most importantly, when you come to our office you know that you’re in experienced and gentle hands with Dr. Paz! Now is the time to find out how our office can help you. We look forward to meeting you and are excited to have the opportunity to create for you the smile you have dreamed of.
