Welcome to Orthodontists Associates of WNY
Our doctors and professional staff are committed to delivering the highest quality patient care. We proudly provide orthodontic services for children, adolescents, and adults, specializing in early treatment for children.
Drs. Dominic A. Colarusso, Jr., Steven J. Hietanen, and Andrew J. Dusel have equipped their offices with cutting-edge technology and computerized systems to provide excellence in diagnosis and treatment planning.
We believe that a beautiful, healthy smile is an asset to any patient. It promotes self-esteem, self-confidence and self-image. Orthodontic treatment brings the face, lips and teeth into proper proportion, as well as correcting problems with the occlusion (the way the teeth come together when the jaws close). Well-aligned teeth are easier to clean, creating better overall oral hygiene, increasing the chances that your beautiful smile will last a lifetime. Studies have shown that a healthier mouth can lead to a healthier YOU!
Early orthodontic treatment has its advantages, as well. We believe managing dental/facial growth and development leads to a nicer-looking, more individualized orthodontic result. We are also better able to identify contributing factors to poor dental/facial growth and development which, when left untreated, can contribute to relapse after treatment. We prefer to be interceptive and proactive in our approach to orthodontics, rather than taking the traditional reactive approach.
