Why Choose Us

We know that you have many offices to choose from for orthodontic treatment. At Coolsmiles, we offer a complimentary new patient consultation to diagnose your case, discuss your treatment options, and help you decide the best fit for you or your child. Orthodontics is a long-term relationship that involves very personal interaction. We take pride in our helpful, cheerful, respectful communication style. Coolsmiles Orthodontics offers a very high level of clinical care and experience, and we use the most advanced technology and treatment methods available to us.

Our doctors …

It’s very simple. Dr. Amram and Dr. Ohnigian are exceptional orthodontists. They have been trained at our finest dental schools. Their ability to listen to you and/or your child is indeed a rarity in today’s health care environment. However, it is their gentleness during treatment that we hear about the most.

Our team …

Caring, warm and empathic personalities are hard to find. That’s why each member of our team is screened for those qualities from dozens of applicants. We know how important it is for you.

State of the art technology …

Our practice has always been on the forefront of all new technological advancements. We have integrated digital (impression-less) scanners at both offices. Our goal was to eliminate the gooey, drippy, messy impressions that everyone hates. We were one of the first health care practices in the country to use computerized patient charting and imaging.  Our state of the art x-ray imaging system reduces radiation exposure by over 50% compared to traditional x-ray machines. We feel strongly that using computer technology allows our team to give our undivided attention where it belongs – to our patients.

Preventive Care …

Many orthodontic problems can be prevented if treated early. Our early treatment program for children has enabled us to intercept developing problems and reduce the amount of time in future braces. Our strong philosophy of not extracting healthy permanent teeth is supported with the use of expanders and other functional appliances that work with a child’s natural growth (ages 5-10).

Adult Care …

Drs. Amram and Ohnigan are committed to helping adults achieve the smiles they have always wanted. Our doctors have achieved “Elite Provider” status with Invisalign®. In most cases, we can use clear aligners to achieve adult goals. The concept of “straight teeth – no braces” has become a reality at Coolsmiles Orthodontics.

Enhanced Communications …

E-mail, text message reminders, account information and even viewing your photos and x-rays are some of the features available to all of our patients. All are password protected and available 24/7. Our lobbies even offer free wireless access, so you can check your e-mail or check your schedule on line. Our individual coffee/tea availability at each visit also enhances our user-friendly reputation.

The personal practice of choice for many dentist/physician families …

Since opening our practice in 1978, Coolsmiles Orthodontics has been the choice of many health care professionals for their orthodontic needs. Over the years, Dr. Amram and Dr. Ohnigian have treated area physicians, dentists, their staff, and families. This is perhaps one of the finest compliments we receive.

Leaders in our field …

Dr. Amram has been certified by the American Board of Orthodontists, while Dr. Ohnigian is in the process of completing his certification through the American Board of Orthodontists. This designation is given to doctors who have passed advanced exams and is currently attained by only 25% of the orthodontists worldwide.

Contributors to the community…

Dr. Amram and Dr. Ohnigian volunteer their time to many community and civic organizations. Dr. Amram is a volunteer for the “Make-a-Wish” foundation, an organization that grants seriously ill children their most cherished wishes. After being contacted by the foundation, he recently donated his time and expertise to provide a child in need with a beautiful smile. Dr. Amram is also active with the “Learning for Life” program: a program designed to prepare young adults to successfully handle the complexities of contemporary society by reinforcing the ideal that all doors are open to them.

Dr. Amram is a participant in the SmilesChangeLives community outreach program and donate their services to children that can not afford the benefits of a healthy beautiful smile.

Throughout dental school, residency, and now as an orthodontist Dr. Ohnigian has always been involved with The Give Kids a Smile event.  This gives him the opportunity to give back to the community and provide oral health care to those who do not have the means to see a dentist.
