What Sets Us Apart

We know that choosing an orthodontist is a very personal decision. There are many orthodontic offices and treatment options available to you. Here are just a few details about our office that describes “What Sets Us Apart”:

  • Free initial exam. Dr. Couto does not want to set up any barriers to exploring your orthodontic options. Our initial exam is free and includes photographs and diagnostic X-ray(s). We do this because we know your time is valuable! Our goal is for you to leave your first appointment with a full appreciation of your orthodontic treatment options including fees, payment plans, and insurance considerations. Call us at any time to set up an appointment to see if orthodontic treatment is right for you.
  • Doctor Couto is an Orthodontic Specialist. While many dental professionals provide orthodontic care, Dr. Couto has obtained specialty training and limits her practice to orthodontic care. Therefore, Dr. Couto focuses 100% of her energy on staying at the leading edge of orthodontic treatment.
  • Leading Edge Technology. The vast majority of orthodontic specialists are capable of providing competent orthodontic care. Dr. Couto sets herself apart through extensive Continuing education to provide a wider variety of orthodontic options than most other practices. Dr. Couto’s leading edge orthodontic techniques can make your treatment easier, faster, more efficient, or more esthetic to meet your needs and desires.
  • Superior Customer Service. Because orthodontics is generally a process that can take from several months to several years, Dr. Couto realizes that providing a high level of customer service is extremely important. While, everyone pays lip service to customer service, you’ll quickly realize that we actually mean it! When you call our office for the first time, odds are you’ll speak to Barb. After you spend a few moments with her on the phone I am certain you’ll agree that we are committed to providing a superior customer service experience.
  • State of the Art Office. Dr. Couto has designed a state-of-the-art orthodontics office with some of the most up to date dental equipment available to provide a comfortable, yet leading edge facility to provide our patients with the highest level of care possible.
  • Meticulous Sterilization. Our patients are not just members of the community. Many of our patients are our friends, relatives, staff members, and members of our immediate family. You can be assured that we follow the strictest guidelines for sterilization techniques and will never cut any corners.
  • Enhanced WEB Services. Through our WEB services, our patients have the option to receive e-mail appointment reminders and check their appointment times on-line.  This WEB service is available 24/7, and is a convenient way for our patients to stay connected to our office from home.
  • Gum chewing. You or your teenagers will be delighted to hear that as of November 2010, we now allow our patients to chew gum! Our only restriction is that the gum have the new Xylitol sweetener. Xylitol is a special sweetener that has been shown to prevent cavities. Therefore, even though you may have an occasional loose bracket, Dr. Couto feels that the benefits of this new gum outweigh the downsides. Xylitol-flavored gum is available at most supermarkets and convenience stores today.
