Our office strives to deliver the very best orthodontic treatment in the shortest time possible by using the most current technology available. Dr. Woehst has been in practice since 1975 and has treated thousands of patients, yet he still attends continuing education courses to make sure his patients get the best orthodontic care that the modern age has to offer. A few examples of the latest technology that we use include nickel titanium wires, small single bracket braces that provide more inter-bracket distance and faster tooth movement, and clear, non-staining, frictionless braces (Clarity™ Advanced).
Clear braces by Clarity Advanced are a very popular choice among all of our patients. They are practically invisible and unnoticeable. Treatment results are much better and shorter than results from Invisalign®. For our younger patients, we offer clear or metal braces with a broad choice of color options — everything from neon green to hot pink. You can choose the colors that you want your smile to be!
Dr. Woehst's office is a fun place to get braces. We are equipped with XBox 360s, a Nintendo GameCube, and a Playstation. We also offer the latest movies on our high-definition TV. Those in the reception room can watch Fox News while enjoying flavored coffee from our new Keurig coffee maker and freshly baked Otis Spunkmeyer cookies, such as white chocolate macadamia nut. We also have the latest magazines and inspirational books.
Patients that take good care of their braces are rewarded with "Brace Bucks" that they can turn in for fun prizes, movie passes, dinner gift certificates,or Academy gift certificates.
Every month, we celebrate with our patients who have completed their orthodontic treatment with Party Day. We schedule nothing but brace removals for the entire day and have refreshments, balloons, silly string, songs, and graduation diplomas. Each month has a different theme (e.g., Astros, football, Halloween, Christmas, American Idol, etc.).
Orthodontists receive an additional two to three years of specialized education beyond dental school to learn the proper way to align and straighten teeth. Only those with this education may call themselves orthodontists, and only orthodontists are eligible for membership in the American Association of Orthodontists.
