Community Engagement

We have a long track of helping our communities get the highest quality treatment at affordable prices. We are proud to work together with local generalists and other specialists to help you develop a healthy smile, the best smile.

As an Orthodontist in Darien, we offer Carriere Correctors for Class II and Class III bites; we have the option of clear braces for young teens and adults who prefer a more discreet orthodontic procedure that ensures excellent results for the realignment of their teeth.

The removable Essix retainers are a local favorite to help maintain the well-deserved results of personalized orthodontic treatment.

Here in Connecticut, only 10% of all Dental Health professionals are certified orthodontists, and both Dr. Steve and Dr. Gary are thrilled to be your preferred Darien certified orthodontists.

We invite you to be part of a family that gives back to the community. We have active participation with Universities, like the University of Connecticut and High Schools teaching the next generation of Dental Health professionals.

We don’t forget about the outstanding charitable organizations that help those in need, such as The ALS Association and The Wounded Warrior Program.

We are aware that even though dental treatment is always a concern for our neighbors, the treatment cost is also on their minds. Westwalk Orthodontic Group continues to offer interest-free payment plans that help our patients put those concerns at rest.

As your next Darien orthodontist, we will be careful to lay out all options available to you and consult with your insurance provider. We will make sure you can always make the best well-informed decision that adjusts to your budget and preferences.

If you trust us to be your preferred orthodontist in Darien, you should know that the sooner you decide to consult with us, the better we can care for your smile. If you have children, we recommend bringing them to our offices by age eight, so we can start working on what type of treatment they will need.

We often see parents wait until all baby teeth have fallen, but this only limits the options for orthodontic treatment available to your child if they were to need it.

How to reach your Darien Orthodontists

Remember that early consultation with your Darien Orthodontist means we can spot early on any minor issues and recommend treatment that minimizes jaw development issues or dental health problems later on.

If you have questions about how appropriate it is for your young one to come into the office, you can give us a call, and we can help you determine if they should wait a little longer. You can find our number on the Contact Us page.

We are looking forward to your next visit to either of our locations. If you’re coming to the Norwalk office, you can do so by taking exit 16 on I-95 into East Ave. and then heading North. You’ll spot us on your right as you approach Eversley Ave.

FAQ

Why do you need an orthodontist?

There are many reasons why you would need a Darien orthodontist. Even if you have taken care of your teeth with good dental hygiene habits, your permanent teeth may have grown in the wrong position. Even if you never experienced severe malalignment, your teeth may have shifted positions with advancing age or trauma, and the only possible treatment is orthodontic corrective treatment.

Is orthodontic treatment necessary?

A Darien orthodontist will only recommend treatment if it’s necessary. Orthodontic corrective or preventive treatment is not just for looks. Orthodontic complications result in difficult-to-clean teeth or speech development issues. The only way to work on these is through orthodontic treatment.

What is the best age for orthodontic treatment?

An orthodontist in Darien would not expect newborn babies to come to the office. You may have heard that a child should visit the dentist by their first birthday, but when it comes to orthodontics, you may want to wait a little longer. You can bring your kid by age 7 when orthodontic problems can be diagnosed and corrected without much trouble.

What kind of work does an orthodontist do?

An orthodontist in Darien focuses on the positioning of dental structures, meaning they focus on making your teeth and jaws align properly. Orthodontists have to undergo additional studies and much more training to receive their certification in this field.

What skills do orthodontists need?

When you visit an orthodontist in Darien, you will benefit from specialized training dedicated to the correct positioning of your dental structures. All orthodontists are dentists, but not all dentists are orthodontists. Here in the US, an orthodontist only receives that certification after a two- or three-year long residency and over 4800 hours of specialized training.
