FRESNO, CA (June 27, 2016) – Adults, teens and children who need braces in the Fresno area have a new choice for a quality smile. Orthodontist, Tamara N. Shamlian, DDS, MS, is opening her specialty orthodontic practice, Clarity Orthodontics, in Northwest Fresno. Dr. Shamlian is one of the few board certified orthodontists in the greater Fresno area and she offers a wide variety of orthodontic services to her patients. Dr. Shamlian is experienced in modern metal and esthetic clear braces for patients of all ages, Invisalign® clear aligners for teens and adults, Incognito™ Hidden Braces, and early treatment for children, including dentofacial growth modification and oral habit cessation. Dr. Shamlian also collaborates with oral surgeons locally and in Southern California to provide her patients with comprehensive surgical orthodontic treatment options. Her practice utilizes state-of-the-art technology with all-digital patient records, virtual “no-goop” dental models using an Itero® Element™ intraoral scanner, ultra low dose Planmeca™ 3D x-ray imaging, and a cutting-edge sterilization center and on-site laboratory, all in a beautiful and relaxing atmosphere.
Dr. Shamlian feels it is important for the public to be educated about their oral health. She offers free orthodontic exams and consultations for patients of all ages interested in orthodontic treatment. After meeting with Dr. Shamlian, patients and their families are able to better understand how braces or clear aligner treatment can correct their problems of crooked teeth, overbite, under bite, open bite, protruding teeth, teeth that grow into the wrong position, gaps between teeth, bad oral habits, jaw misalignment and TMJ issues.
Dental insurance often does not cover the cost of braces. For a limited time, Dr. Shamlian offers special savings on both modern metal braces, clear esthetic braces and Invisalign®*. For offer details and to make an appointment for a free exam and consultation, call 559-4SMILES, (559-476-4537) or visit www.ClarityOrtho.com.
The American Association of Orthodontists recommends children receive their first orthodontic consultation by age seven to spot any problems with jaw growth and developing teeth. However, orthodontics isn’t just for children and teens anymore. One in five orthodontic patients is an adult.
“My goal is to give my patients a beautiful and healthy smile,” said Dr. Shamlian. “I love seeing the confidence of my patients develop as their smiles transform. It brings me joy when they feel comfortable to share their smile with the world!”
