We focus on the needs and concerns of our patients, and will explain different options for your treatment.
Dr. Bentele and his staff strives to educate their patients. We place special emphasis to oral hygiene and we follow-up at every appointment.
The word most people most often use to describe us is "comfortable". Unlike at high volume corporate dentistry clinics, Dr. Mark Bentele sees each patient at every appointment for a personal touch. He is truly an orthodontics specialist and not a general dentist who dabbles in orthodontics. His name is on the door, he is solely repsonsible for patient treatment and it is a "signature event" to celebrate when a patient completes treatment.
His orthodontic philosophies are to consider the best facial aesthetic outcomes, enhance the health of the mouth, and ultimately, provide the best bite and smile achievable for each unique patient. Our approach is conservative and patient centered but utilizes the latest technology.
Dr. Bentele has over 30 years of healthcare experience, extensive university training and highly specialized expertise to meet your needs. Please see our About page for further information.
If you have a child with a craniofacial difference or cleft lip/palate please see the Cleft Lip & Palate page for further information about the Children's Hospital Cleft Lip and Palate team and orthodontic care.
