Levittown Orthodontist Celebrating Orthodontic Awareness Month

LEVITTOWN, NY--(Marketwired - October 23, 2014) - Dr. David Ostreicher, an orthodontist Levittown, N.Y., residents find dependable and affordable, wants to remind patients that October is Orthodontic Awareness Month.

Dr. Ostreicher, who has been the orthodontist Long Island adults and teens have counted on for more than three decades, said his patients have had a first-hand look at how a straighter smile can increase confidence and benefit overall oral health. During the entire month of October, Dr. Ostreicher has been giving out "I Love To Smile" wristbands to his patients.

"Our whole mission is to give our patients that perfect smile," Dr. Ostreicher said. "My staff and I always strive to provide the most appropriate orthodontic treatment for every new patient we see. We benefit, too, because we get to see the patient's smile transform right before our eyes."

Part of this month's awareness plan is to educate patients about the ever-growing field of orthodontics. The discipline no longer deals exclusively with metal braces, and treatment times have reduced over the years.

Dr. Ostreicher also offers Streamlign Clear, less noticeable braces Long Island patients are using to get straight smiles in about six months, and Invisalign.

With Invisalign, patients receive a series of clear trays that gradually adjust the teeth into position. The treatment is popular for working professionals because it is virtually invisible and the trays can be taken out for eating, brushing and flossing.

"One of the great things about orthodontics is that it's always growing, and that growth is always in a direction that benefits the patient, whether that be short-term methods, costs or providing less-invasive treatments like Invisalign," Dr. Ostreicher said.

Dr. Ostreicher is as a trainer for Align Tech Institute, the education branch for Invisalign-makers Align Technology. Dr. Ostreicher regularly gives lectures on Invisalign to dentists across the country, making him one of the most experienced Invisalign providers in the world. He invented Vibralign, a program that accelerates orthodontic tooth movement, and he provides services Fastbraces and Acceledent for patients looking for speedy results.

Dr. Ostreicher has practiced orthodontics in Levittown, NY., for 35 years and has published two books on orthodontics and oral health, "Brush Your Teeth! And Other Simple Ways to Stay Young and Healthy" and "7 Reasons to Straighten Your Teeth." Dr. Ostreicher and his team provides quality and professional orthodontics Long Island patients depend on, whether they are need of short-term or long-term treatments.

Dr. Ostreicher graduated with honors from Columbia University School of Dental Medicine, where he earned a certification in orthodontics. He then earned a master's degree in public health from Columbia University Mailman School of Public Health. He is professor emeritus of public health at the University of Bridgeport and is the former president of the New York State Dental Association.
