Coolsmiles Orthodontics with offices in Medford and Port Jefferson, NY is among the first orthodontic practices in the country to offer new digital scanning technology to their Long Island patients.

Creating a positive patient experience and using the latest digital technology is not something new at Coolsmiles Orthodontics.  Dr. Leon Klempner and Dr. David Amram believe that innovative technology should always be a benefit to their patients.  They were also among the first to introduce paperless patient records and digital imaging, which allows doctors to view all treatment notes, photographs and x-rays right at the chair.  Dr. Amram states “this has allowed us to enhance our communication with both patients and parents as well as improve our clinical results.”  Coolsmiles now offers Itero scanners in both their locations and patients are loving it.  “Everyone hates having that gooey, drippy stuff in their mouths”, says Dr. Klempner.  Coolsmiles reports that the fastest growing segment of new patients are adults and teens.  These patients are usually treated without braces using the Invisalign system of clear aligners.  The Itero scanners are directly integrated with Invisalign.  Once patients are scanned, the scan goes directly to Invisalign resulting in faster service and better fitting aligners.  Although impressions are still occasionally used, Dr. Amram says “Coolsmiles is leading the way to straight teeth without gagging.” Coolsmiles offers complimentary new patient exams and imaging.  Visit their website: www.coolsmiles.com or call 631-289-0909.  You can learn more about this innovative orthodontic practice on their facebook page.
