Throughout his extensive career, Dr. Paz has improved the smiles of over 6,000+ patients ranging in age from six to 86. “I never tire of the thrill when the braces come off, and the patient’s smile lights up the world,” he says. “We celebrate by making popcorn right then and there.”
Parents and adult patients are often surprised at the innovations that have been made in the field of orthodontics. Both metal and clear brackets are smaller and more comfortable to wear. According to the American Association of Orthodontists, by 2016 some 28 percent of patients treated with braces were over the age of 18.
“Getting the result right is both medical science, and an art. I’ve seen my share of what happens when the process is not medically supervised. Healthy alignment should be married to healthy jaw support. Both need each other to do the job well,” says Dr. Paz.
As an involved member of the community, Dr. Mario Orthodontics has donated orthodontic treatment cases to local school annual auctions for years. The treatment is valued at $5,000. “Fifty percent of our patients are students. We hear about their schools and sports programs so naturally we want to support them and keep them healthy,” says Registered Dental Assistant, Loretta Body, who has worked with Dr. Paz for over 21 years.
