I had done quite a bit of research for a good orthodontic office before I found Dr. Ashouri. Before I found this lovely orthodontist office, I had met several ego-maniacs, and some scary ones. I was told by several other orthodontists that I could not have Invisalign (Invisaline) clear braces because of my overbite in addition to my crooked teeth. The best offer I received from another place was the inside braces (called lingual braces) - which cost A LOT and are not even very attractive. Dr. Ashouri's office is sooooooo friendly and bright that from the moment I walked in, I was already feeling comfortable. After meeting the staff and interacting with them and Dr. Ashouri, I knew I would be very happy at their office. Many other orthodontists I had visited previously, had staff who were dealing with me as a patient. At Dr. Ashouri's office, the doctor herself took me in, checked out my teeth AND answered ALL my many questions. She even offerred me Invisalign WITH rubber bands in order to fix my overbite without any metal in my mouth! At first, I was wondering if it would really work. Dr. Ashouri assurred me that if it doesn't she will put braces on me at NO additional charge. So, I had nothing to lose and everything to gain. I did have to wear my Invisaline aligners day and night (20 or more hours per day) along with the rubber bands. Dr. Ashouri completed my entire treatment in less than 15 months. She had originally given me an estimate of 15 to 18 months. I must say that repeatedly, I have been pleasantly surprised by this office, the doctor, and their staff. When I walk into the office, the staff know me by name and greet me warmly. I am now wearing clear retainers and will soon switch to night only wear. Truly, during my treatment, nobody noticed my invisalign trays at all. Friends would only see them after I told them about it! So, they really are invisible braces! Even tough I am very picky, once I came to this office, I knew that there won't be another that would even come close to the caliber and quality of this office, and I still think so after being treated by them! I have already referred several friends to this office, and I will continue to do so for as long as they are willing to take new patients! All my friends agree with my opinion and experience, and every one of them have started braces or invisalign and are looking great. You will make friends with the staff at this office, as you are not just their patient. You will feel very important and will receive the best possible treatment. I know this from personal experience. Come on, they even fixed my overbite with Invisalign - How often have you heard of that???
