Spodak Dental Group Named 2021 VIP: Diamond Top 1% Nationwide Invisalign Provider

DELRAY BEACH, Fla. -- Spodak Dental Group has been named a VIP: Diamond Top 1% Provider of Invisalign® for 2021, which remains to be one of the highest distinctions in the field. VIP: Diamond Providers make up a select few of all North American Invisalign® Providers and are among some of the most experienced.

Spodak Dental Group is the only general dental office to earn the VIP: Diamond status in Palm Beach, Broward and Martin Counties. The team of dentists conveniently offers current and future new patients both Invisalign® Adult and Teen treatments, and provides virtual appointments for those patients who wish to avoid in-office appointments during the COVID-19 pandemic.

"To earn the VIP: Diamond distinction means that we have successfully improved smiles with the Invisalign treatment, helping our patients painlessly achieve their smile goals, all with minimal disruption to their daily lives," said Dr. Craig Spodak, general dentist at Spodak Dental Group. "It's an honor to be able to provide this teeth-straightening method to our family of patients."

A doctor's level reflects the number of individuals he/she has recently treated with the comprehensive Invisalign® clear aligner treatment, and the Spodak Dental Group team has successfully treated almost 2,000 patients to date. Doctors who have achieved the VIP status are Valued Invisalign Providers, and have chosen to specialize in using the Invisalign® treatment to shape their patients' smile.

Invisalign® effectively treats a wide variety of cases, including crowding, spacing, crossbite, overbite and underbite, and consists of smooth, comfortable plastic aligners instead of sharp metal, reducing irritation on your teeth and gums.

In addition to being a VIP: Diamond Provider, the Spodak Dental Group uses the iTero® Digital Scanning System to provide great quality of care and comfort for their patients. The System eliminates the need for messy putty in the patient's mouth by creating a 3-D digital impression of his/her teeth. The System offers a faster and more comfortable experience with more accurate results, which delivers a more precise fit for the Invisalign® aligners.

Spodak Dental Group is currently helping patients begin their Invisalign® treatment for $0 down and $230 per month for 24 months, interest free. Average treatment time at the Spodak Dental Group is 10 months for adults, which is significantly less than traditional metal braces, in addition to being less expensive than braces.

The Spodak Dental Group, a 2017 Inc. 5000 honoree, has evolved to become South Florida's premier, comprehensive dental facility, and comprises a world-class association of dental professionals poised to provide full-service dental care second-to-none in both scope and skill. The Spodak Dental Group team includes General and Restorative Dentists, Endodontists, Periodontists, Board Certified Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeons, Master Ceramic Artists and Anesthesiologists, as well as one of the nation's only in-office dental labs.

Marina Del Rey Orthodontist Installs Over 6,000 Sets of Braces

LOS ANGELES, Calif. -- They say first impressions are everything, and Marina Del Rey orthodontist Dr. Mario Paz celebrates that mantra with his over 6000th installation of braces.

Throughout his extensive career, Dr. Paz has improved the smiles of over 6,000+ patients ranging in age from six to 86. "I never tire of the thrill when the braces come off, and the patient's smile lights up the world," he says. "We celebrate by making popcorn right then and there."

Parents and adult patients are often surprised at the innovations that have been made in the field of orthodontics. Both metal and clear brackets are smaller and more comfortable to wear. According to the American Association of Orthodontists, by 2016 some 28 percent of patients treated with braces were over the age of 18.

"Getting the result right is both medical science, and an art. I've seen my share of what happens when the process is not medically supervised. Healthy alignment should be married to healthy jaw support. Both need each other to do the job well," says Dr. Paz.

As an involved member of the community, Dr. Mario Orthodontics has donated orthodontic treatment cases to local school annual auctions for years. The treatment is valued at $5,000. "Fifty percent of our patients are students. We hear about their schools and sports programs so naturally we want to support them and keep them healthy," says Registered Dental Assistant, Loretta Body, who has worked with Dr. Paz for over 21 years.

Stress from Fears of Coronavirus Prompts Teeth Grinding – Marina Del Rey based Orthodontist Shares Stress Reducing Tips

MARINA DEL REY, Calif. -- Throughout his 30-year career, Dr. Mario Paz is used to hearing reasons why patients grind their teeth at night, but now it's about COVID-19. "Fears of the virus are creating new anxieties causing patients to clench their jaws for sustained period. This alters their bite causing pain," he says.

According to Dr. Paz, "Stress is something we must attempt to manage, or it will manage us. Teeth grinding may lead to jaw pain and what is known as Temporomandibular Joint Dysfunction (TMD), which may require braces to correct."

Instead, Dr. Paz encourages people to focus on gratitude as a way of reducing their anxiety. "The first step is to be intentional, acknowledging stress takes a toll on the body and the mind. A powerful antidote is to cultivate an attitude of gratitude," he advises.

According to a Harvard Mental Health Letter dated June 5, 2019, "In Praise of Gratitude," expressing thanks can lead to improved health and greater happiness. The article gives six suggestions for cultivating gratitude, including writing a thank you note and jotting down three to five things you're grateful for each week. "As you write, be specific and think about the sensations you felt when something good happened to you," the article states.

Patients suffering symptoms due to excessive grinding should contact their dental professional after COVID-19 quarantines have been lifted. "Hopefully, we can all better manage stress from this virus in the days ahead," says Dr. Paz.
