Experience With New Technology
My practice is built on creating the ideal solution for your specific orthodontic needs.
Technology, "My practice is built on creating the ideal solution for your specific orthodontic needs. Together we will develop a treatment plan that can be based on any of the orthodontic technologies that I have available. In addition to using the right technique/technology for your teeth, I want to offer you the shortest possible time in treatment on your way to your perfect smile! - Randy Kunik, DDS"
If there is a new product available for aligning teeth you want your doctor to know about it. Advances in CAD/CAM have made it possible for new technologies like Invisalign removable clear plastic aligners to make micro precision tooth movements available to the doctor without having to use metal wires and brackets. Invisalign aligners have evolved into the preferred orthodontic appliance of patients and doctors. But not all doctors are specialists. Dr. Kunik only practices orthodontics. His dedication to his craft and desire to stay at the forefront of technological advances means that his recommendations are drawing on successful practical experience.
The "Concierge" Approach
Patients Don't Wait
Dr. Kunik holds daily morning meetings and twice-monthly lunch gatherings for his staff. The goal is to make sure that they always know their role in his “concierge” system of checking patients out while they are still in the chair, which he calls “a customer service breakthrough in the dental field.
Vigorous staff training is a priority of Dr. Kunik's. In addition to the meetings, team training happens weekly and is a critical part of the practice. You might wonder why he requires so much training? According to Dr. Kunik, customers demand it, technology necessitates it, but the rigors of running a business require employees who know what they are doing at all times.
Kunik Orthodontics and Invisalign
"I started with Invisalign in 1999."
"I started with Invisalign in 1999 working on a research project with them on bicuspid extractions. I worked weekly with their engineers, all with no financial relationship. Whether it's Invisalign, standard braces, or lingual treatment, the mode of correction takes a back seat to the outcome and patient preference. The finish has got to be the same quality no matter how we start. But most of the time when patients walk into my office, I know what they want and that they don't want braces. Because of aesthetics and comfort, Invisalign opens the door for patients that normally would not seek treatment." Dr. Randy Kunik
