The Benefits of Seeing an Orthodontist In Your Local Community

If you live in the Boston area, you know just what a great community we have around here. New England Orthodontic Specialists set up our practice here because we love this area and want to be a part of making this community happier and healthier through orthodontic treatment. If you’re like us, you probably understand the value of the local community, local businesses, and how important it is to have healthy, straight teeth!

That’s why we don’t recommend that people try out those generic online orthodontic retailers. They offer big promises to straighten your teeth cheaply and fast using aligners, but what are the secret costs of doing it that way? Let us share with you the many perks of choosing a local orthodontist instead of ordering your orthodontics online!

Get Early Interventions

Did you know that most orthodontists recommend bringing in your children for their first orthodontic appointments starting at around seven years old? You may think, “My kid’s teeth haven’t even finished growing in yet!” That’s actually the point! While your child is still young and developing is one of the best times to get started to shift some things around to make their mouths healthier from the very beginning. Managing serious interventions like jaw problems early is one of the best and easiest ways to care for your child’s long-term health. There’s no way that this kind of care is available online!

See a Board-Certified Orthodontist

When it comes to your health, you don’t want to mess around with imprecise interventions. Ordering retainers online means having them produced in a factory setting, where possibly no doctor or even technician is calling the shots. When you choose a local office like New England Orthodontic Specialists, you will build a relationship with Dr. Diana or Dr. Neil, and they will be consistently observing and evaluating your progress.

There’s a reason why orthodontists are required to go through all the rigors of dental school and specialization, as well as ongoing education–because that’s how important it is for you to have expert care in order for your teeth and mouth to be healthy. It’s just not worth it to risk your health for a quick fix and a pretty smile. There are better options, closer to home.

Support a Local Business

Have you ever considered how a local orthodontist’s office is a part of the fabric of your local community? We live, work, and raise our families in the same communities you do, and we are so proud to be a part of helping people here enjoy their healthiest smiles. That’s why when you choose to go to a local orthodontist, you aren’t just making a convenient choice, but a strategic one. Invest in your community by allowing us to continue our work around BeverlyTopsfieldSouth Hamilton, and Salem!

Multiple Treatment Options

Don’t short-change yourself into thinking that only one treatment online is the only one out there! The truth is that orthodontics is growing and changing all the time, and our team is growing and changing with it! We do this in order to offer our patients with treatment plans that will work best for their unique smiles and personal preferences. Here are a few treatments that we offer in our offices:

Metal Braces and Clear Braces

If you think you know it all about braces, then you are sadly mistaken! Braces are an amazing orthodontic intervention for so many people because of just how effective they are at solving oral health problems, big and small. Traditional metal braces are the most straightforward and inexpensive choice, but clear ceramic braces are also popular options for adults and teens who care about their appearance! Made from tooth-colored ceramic, clear braces are an excellent way to get the powerful effects of braces but in a much less obvious form.


We love offering Invisalign to our patients and overseeing their treatment using these amazing aligners. Invisalign is often what people expect when they order aligners online, but that’s not the case. A thorough Invisalign treatment will involve regular visits to the orthodontist to ensure that treatment is working properly and safely. Wearing your clear aligners is so convenient and nearly invisible, and they are easy to maintain as long as you take them out and keep them safe when eating and drinking!

Personalized Financing

At our offices, we have amazing office staff who are professionals at working through your finances with you. Just like your teeth need unique treatment plans, so do your finances! Every family is so different, and we are happy to offer personalized plans to make treatment affordable for you and your family. You certainly won’t experience personalized options when you order orthodontics online, as they’ll expect prompt payments upfront for less professional care!

Focus on Health and Cosmetics

The way that the field of orthodontics has grown in the last few years, everyone agrees that your cosmetic appearance and health can and should both be the priority. If your goal is to have a dazzling, straight smile, then that should be possible without sacrificing your oral health, and vice versa! Only with local board-certified orthodontists–like Dr. Neil and Dr. Diana–will you get the best of both worlds knowing that your stunning smile won’t come with compromises to your health.
