Focused Orthodontics

Dr. Shinmachi is an Ivy-league trained specialist in orthodontics who limits her practice solely to orthodontic care. She is passionate about continuing education and cutting- edge technology, and enjoys filling your visits with smiles. Unlike some orthodontic offices, which have multiple doctors, several practice locations, and an assembly line of patients, we pride ourselves in having one doctor focused on individualized patient care at one central location. At every visit you will see Dr. Shinmachi, which ensures your treatment is progressing as best as possible. Our prime location gives you easy access to us whenever you need it – no searching for Dr. Shinmachi or staff across multiple offices!

Renovated, Modern Practice

Our office was recently renovated! It is clean, modern, and completely digital. The technology we use allows faster, more accurate diagnoses, and more comfortable treatment. We utilize digital photography, digital X-rays, and paperless patient charts on Apple Macs for fast and easy communication with you and your general dentist regarding your treatment. Our patients can also be assured that we follow all of the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) guidelines for bacterial control and sterilization techniques.

Personalized Diagnosis and Care

We genuinely enjoy getting to know our patients on a more personal level and look forward to watching their transformations throughout their orthodontic treatment. Our personalized care starts with understanding your individual needs, and continues even beyond finishing your treatment with removable retainers and customized bonded/fixed retainers. Our mission is to provide our patients with the highest quality orthodontic care available in a friendly, yet professional environment.

Convenient Office Hours

We know you have a busy schedule, so we offer early morning and late night appointments every week. All of our appointments are appropriately scheduled so that you will spend less time in the waiting room and more time out enjoying the things that make you smile. We have monthly in-office contests and giveaways to keep you entertained each visit, too. Visit our Scheduling page for more information.

Our Orthodontic Materials

We use high quality orthodontic products. We purchase our orthodontic brackets, wires, bands, and cement from highly-regarded orthodontic companies to ensure the highest quality and best technology. We have an in-house orthodontic laboratory for fast turn-around of our retainers and custom-fit mouth guards.

Affordable Braces

We offer several payment options for your convenience. Please visit our Financial page for more information on our flexible financial arrangements.

Orthodontic treatment is a long-term process. Knowing this, we strive to make your orthodontic treatment in our office a positive experience with great customer service.  We cannot wait to meet you!
