What Sets Us Apart

Come Check Out Our Practice!

  • We do quality work! We take pride in the personal attention and thorough patient education we provide to our patients and their families.
  • We take pride in our amazing office setting, cleanliness, chic décor, and outstanding customer service.
  • We use state-of-the-art digital X-rays to minimize X-ray exposure and to achieve the highest quality images.
  • With cutting-edge technology, like the iTero Scanner, we decrease the need for uncomfortable impressions and provide exact digital replicas of your teeth. The iTero Scanner is an intraoral orthodontic camera that digitally captures the structure of your teeth, gums, and overall bite.
  • All patient records are digitally stored using secure and extremely reliable practice management systems running on Apple computers. Electronic patient records, and tools like the iTero scanner, allow seamless integration with patients, dentists, labs, and any other oral health team members.
  • We are committed to a team approach involving Dr. Murthy, our staff, our patients, their family, and our patients’ family dentist. Dr. Murthy constantly communicates with our patients’ dentists with letters, photos, and X-rays to keep the dentist updated on each patient’s treatment progress.
  • We believe that good communication and understanding are the keys to an excellent working relationship with our patients. Our staff is prepared to answer your questions and to provide you with any information necessary throughout active treatment and into retention.
  • Our treatment fee includes everything – your visits, records, orthodontic appliances, one set of retainers, and two years of post-orthodontic treatment visits for retention checks. There are no surprises.
  • Patient video testimonials are available for viewing. In addition, select patients have volunteered to serve as references regarding our caring customer service and their orthodontic experience with us.
  • Our staff and Dr. Murthy work as a well-balanced team so that together we can achieve your orthodontic goals. Each member of our staff is friendly, outgoing, caring, skillful, and knowledgeable. We are here to work with you and transform your smile!
