NJ TOP DENTISTS 2016 GENERAL DENTISTRY
What is the most common misconception among your patients regarding dental care? Most people believe that orthodontics is a service for children and young adults. Here at Cuozzo Orthodontics, we see people of all ages who are interested in orthodontic care. Whether we are correcting a cross bite or our patients are looking to obtain a perfect smile, orthodontic treatment is for all ages and can be completely life changing! How do you ensure specialized care to your patients? Cuozzo Orthodontics takes a conservative approach to treatment. We have one main goal in mind, which is to have our patients in treatment for the least amount of time possible. We do not want to compromise an excellent orthodontic result for any of our patients. Please highlight any unique services that your practice offers its patients. Both of our offices, in Lincroft and Sea Girt, are equipped with state-of-the-art technology, which allows our patients the convenience of fewer appointments and a decrease in discomfort. We have a system in place for our patients to receive email or text message appointment reminders to help with their busy schedules. Parents can also access their children’s files through an online portal. Are you using any new technology in your office? We are one of the few orthodontists in the area to utilize the innovative 3D dental x-ray system. This technology allows the doctor to obtain a more precise, high-clarity image which in turn allows an extraordinarily accurate diagnosis.
What’s in store for you and your practice? Cuozzo Orthodontics hopes to continue to be on the cutting-edge of orthodontics by implementing scientifically proven stateof-the-art procedures such as the newest computer/3D technology. My staff and I are committed to training and team building seminars centered on customer service and efficiency to continue to provide the best possible care to our patients. What are the most important qualities that a patient should look for when choosing an orthodontist? In my opinion, it is most imporant to choose a licensed orthodontist who meets the criteria and has completed advanced training. If they have the necessary training, you know that they will provide safe and effective services. Look for orthodontic board certifications and orthodontic association memberships. A great place to start your search is www. braces.org. Even further, it is important to always meet with the doctor and staff to ensure that you feel it will be a good fit for you. You want to ensure they can provide you with all aspects of your treatment. Describe the patient-doctor relationship at your practice. Our patients are most important to us. Our goal is to exceed all of our patients’ expectations in treatments as well as in customer service. From the initial call to our office, our friendly staff members treat everyone like the important individual they are. We understand that orthodontics is a long-term commitment. Due to this fact, we look to establish long-lasting relationships with all of our patients and their family members.
