What Sets Us Apart

We understand that you have a choice in who provides your orthodontic care. We’d like to tell you about a few features of Shenango Valley Orthodontics that make us your number-one option!

  • Board Certified Diplomate of the American Board of Orthodontics: Dr. Doug Smith is  board certified by the American Board of Orthodontics, which gives him Diplomate status with the Board. To obtain this distinction,he  first earned a dentistry degree and completed an advanced post-doctoral course (accredited by the American Dental Association) of at least two academic years in the specialty of orthodontics. After becoming an orthodontist, he took the extra step of voluntarily completing an examination to become board certified. Dr. Smith passed written examinations and then presented a number of his orthodontic cases. After his evaluation, he became a Board Certified Diplomate of the American Board of Orthodontics, a status that is rarely achieved by only 25% of all American orthodontists.
  • One Centralized Location: Unlike some orthodontic practices, which have offices strewn out over several cities or even counties and states, we have one central location that we see our patients in. Our prime location gives you easy access to your orthodontic professionals whenever you need it – no hunting down doctors or staff across multiple offices!
  • Friendly, Open Atmosphere: To ensure that all our patients feel welcomed, we have created a fun office atmosphere! We provide complimentary beverages and a TV in our reception area, and patients can enjoy their treatment while reclining in our comfortable furniture. Also, our staff members like getting to know each patient, and they will listen closely to your questions and concerns!
  • Conscious of Your Time: Our staff is genuinely interested in delivering compassionate, personalized care. Likewise, they know that your time is valuable, so they keep our office running on schedule.
  • A Variety of Treatment Materials: Dr. Smith and Dr. Ribarevski offer many different types of braces to accommodate the orthodontic needs of every patient. In addition to traditional metal braces, our office can give you:
    • 3M Unitek Orthodontic Products, including Clarity™ ceramic braces that are more aesthetically pleasing than metal braces
    • custom-made 3M Unitek Incognito™ braces that are created specifically for your orthodontic needs
    • virtually undetectable, clear, removable Invisalign® aligners that straighten teeth without noticeable wires and brackets
  • Appointment Reminder E-mails: To help you keep your orthodontic treatment on track, our staff can send you an appointment reminder e-mail! So no matter if you're a busy mom or businessman, we can help you remember your scheduled office visits.
  • Online Services: We live in a digital age, which is why our practice offers lots of information at your fingertips through our helpful and entertaining website.
