what sets us apart

Experience

Our practice has been serving the people of Medfield and surrounding towns since Dr. Starr began his work in 1971. With the addition of Dr. Glick in 2004, we are proud to provide more combined experience than most orthodontic offices in the nation. In addition, many of our team members have been with the practice for decades. We have applied all that we've learned in this time to bring excellent customer service to all of our patients.

All of Your Needs Covered

Choosing to work with a practice staffed by two highly skilled orthodontic specialists ensures that any treatment you seek can be provided. Dr. Starr and Dr. Glick are specialists in Orthodontics and Dentofacial Orthopedics.  Many years of additional education and training beyond dental school are required for this specialty.  Both doctors have received numerous awards and distinctions.  Not only do our patients enjoy the individual attention afforded by such an extensive staff, but they also benefit from two doctors who consult with each other to provide the best care possible.

Finances

We do not want finances to come between the patient and treatment. We do everything we can to design a payment plan that is gentle on your budget. There are no hidden costs. The initial exam and diagnostic records are complimentary.

Infection Control

Our sterilization and infection control procedures meet or exceed the standards set by OSHA and the National Center for Disease Control.

Emergency Care

Orthodontic needs don't always come at convenient times.  If you have a pressing orthodontic issue, you can call our emergency service line that is available 24/7.  An orthodontic technician will be available at all times. 

Non-Extraction Treatment Philosophy

We attempt non-extraction treatment, when possible.  Our goal is a fuller smile and a more pleasing facial profile.  We feel that your child is far too important to have anything less than the best we can do.  We are interested in long-term results.

Technology

Dr. Starr and Dr. Glick maintain busy continuing education calendars so that they can provide our patients with the most up to date techniques and technologies in orthodontics. This has yielded huge dividends for our patients over the years and it continues today. Invisalign® has been the greatest technological advance in orthodontics this century, and our practice has been and continues to be one of the leading providers of Invisalign and Invisalign Teen® in the country. As of 2012, our practice has treated over 1,200 patients with this technology and the results are incredible.  In 2011, we became one of the first practices to implement Invisalign’s iOC™ Scanner into our practice, which allows us to fit patients for aligners without taking impressions!  Aligners made with the iOC scanner fit better than aligners made from impressions.  As a result, teeth move more effectively and efficiently.  We are proud to offer this groundbreaking technology to our patients and we are pleased to be one of the only orthodontic practices in Massachusetts that has one.

Bean backpacks, and gift cards to a variety of everyone’s favorite stores and restaurants.
