Despite the advent of Invisalign, many patients with serious malocclusions or bite imperfections struggle to find an effective solution that does not compromise their outer appearance. This is where ceramic braces come in.

"Going to the Dentist isn't something I enjoy at all. After a 2 year hiatus, due to the pandemic, I was in need of some serious teeth therapy. I was recommended (by a coworker) to Dr. Jalbout and his team. What a great experience. I was at ease, comfortable, welcomed, and nurtured from the very beginning. My anxiety level went from a 10 to a 2. Thank you to an outstanding staff! I have found a new home for my future dental needs."

- Kevin McDaniel

"Dr. Jalbout and his team are excellent. I’ve never been more comfortable with a dental team; I’ve almost fallen asleep in the chair during big procedures. They are efficient, attentive, and caring, and Dr. J works with a precision that I've never witnessed. I’ve moved further and further away from Dr. Jalbout’s office over time and still commute to the city to see him. He’s that good."

- Roland Tiangco

The administrative and dental team are both very professional and friendly. The space is clean and tidy and employees have high tech PPE.

I think Ziad Jalbout is an amazing doctor, I appreciate that he made sure I understood everything before starting, and that made me feel more comfortable. lastly the quality of dental work is superb. I recommend you come here for all your dental needs."
