A very natural looking smile. - Great Results! - Washington, DC

I was considered a "partial" case, meaning that I only needed 9 aligners (most take the full 18). I travel a lot and only had to check in with my dentist once during the process. I am very happy that I have straight teeth and a very natural looking smile. One has to be serious about using an at-home product vs. regular braces, because skipping a night is really noticable and your teeth will feel mis-aligned when you snap them back in. I'd recommend the product to anyone.

Has anyone been able to contact SobeMax? I would really like to get the contact information for this Dr.

I asked my dentist last week about referring people for invisalign.  He said that he's not looking to expand his invisalign business and is something that he prefers to offer to his existing patients.  It is a CAD process to make the trays that reshape the teeth using teeth molds and it is typical that a "touch up" of additional trays are needed -requiring more teeth impressions and follow up appointments. (my "express" case of 8 original trays needed 2 additional trays which required a second set of impressions).

Apparently, the profit margin on invisalign is low and the check up appointments and additional impressions eats into his regular patient schedule.  I have finished my invisalign process and LOVE my smile! My teeth are very straight and look natural (vs. dentures).  I find myself smiling a lot these days.

I have a great dentist and I'm happy to refer him if someone is looking for a new dentist that provides invisalign.

Hello - This is the reply that I received for this Dentist: But I talked to my dentist last week about giving his name out and he really isn't looking to expand his Invisalign business. He said that it really isn't particularly profitable for him and that he prefers offer it to his patients who go to him for regular dentistry needs. And also to patients who don't require extreme straightening since the alignment trays are CAD and there are usually 2-3 sets of teeth impressions required per patient. I was considered an "express" case and needed 8 sets of aligners. But my dentist had to make new impressions of my teeth after the initial 8 since my teeth were still a little crooked and had to have 3 additional aligners to make them perfectly straight. The dentist's profit is whittled away each time he has to make impressions. Dr. Donald Vafides 1122 19th Street, NW Washington, DC 202.466.3570 He's an excellent dentist and I am extremely happy with his work as well as the invisalign treatment. Good luck! -SobeMax

I was recently at my dentist and again spoke with him about Invisalign. He doesn't want Invisalign "only" patients since orthodontics isn't his primary focus. Sorry, but this service is offered to existing patients who are looking to improve the appearance of their smile. -SobeMAx

I would love to go and try your dentist. I'm due for my annual checkup and I think that will be a good opportunity to talk to him about my braces needs
