Stephen Saks, DDS, ABO
“Several of my family members are healthcare providers, and this greatly influenced my decision to become an orthodontist. I chose this specialty because I wanted to be able to help people achieve better self-esteem through an aesthetic, warm and friendly smile. In addition, being an orthodontist allows me to interact with patients on a daily basis, which is something I really enjoy. I value the time I spend with my patients and look forward to learning something unique about each person, while at the same time providing a service from which they can benefit.”
“I never forget that orthodontic treatment is new to most patients. For this reason, I like to take the time to explain everything clearly, particularly recent orthodontic advances such as the Damon® System, which uses continuous light forces, and Invisalign®, which moves teeth without traditional braces. My goal is to ensure that my patients and their families are fully informed and confident with their care, and together we can all work to get that exceptional finish for which Orthodontic Associates is known.”
