Levittown Orthodontist Teaches Invisalign at Detroit Conference

LEVITTOWN, NY--(Marketwired - February 28, 2015) - Dr. David Ostreicher, a leading Levittown orthodontist, led an Invisalign seminar for dentists and dental professionals Feb. 27 in Detroit.

Invisalign is an orthodontic treatment that uses clear aligners instead of traditional metal braces. The aligners are virtually invisible and can be removed by the patient.

Dr. Ostreicher was the instructor for a two-part program called Invisalign Fundamentals, a training program organized by Align Technology, the makers of Invisalign. The course included a live-training session and then an online training course.

Align Tech recommended that attending dentists or orthodontists bring all members of their teams, including dental hygienists and dental assistants. Those who completed the training earned eight hours in continuing education.

Dr. Ostreicher travels across the country lecturing on Invisalign for Aligntech Institute.

"I've used Invisalign in my practice for several years," Dr. Ostreicher said. "I believe in the results, so it's very fulfilling to travel the country to teach this revolutionary technique to my fellow dentists and orthodontists."

In addition to Invisalign, Dr. Ostreicher provides Acceledent for patients looking for speedy results. Dr. Ostreicher also offers Streamlign Clear, less-noticeable braces that patients are using to get straight smiles in about six months.

Dr. Ostreicher is the inventor of the Vibralign Accelerated Orthodontic System that is used to cut Invisalign treatment time in half. The simple and affordable device is shaped like a bite guard, and patients use it twice a day for 15 minutes. In addition to speeding up treatment, Vibralign reduces the discomfort that comes with tooth movement during Invisalign treatment.

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." He provides orthodontic solutions for teens and adults as well as early preventive treatment for children.

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. He currently holds memberships with the American Dental Association, American Public Health Association, Honorary Dental Society and the American Association of Orthodontics. Dr. Ostreicher also served several years as a board of director for Nassau County Dental Society.

While Dr. Ostreicher is one of the country's foremost Invisalign providers and lecturers, he is dedicated to continuing education, accumulating more than three times the required hours every year.
