Professional Affiliations and Activities
Orthodontic Practice PhilosophyYears and years of orthodontic practice and orthodontist specialty services provided through Dr. Leventhal's multiple practice locations formed the basis for our Non Extraction Orthodontics Philosophy.
Failure free orthdontic procedures can be assured without extracting permanent teeth, except perhaps for routine wisdom teeth removal. Dr. Leventhal and his staff firmly believe that better and faster results can be achieved when ALL permanent teeth (except third (3rd) molars are preserved.
All of our staff dentists who provide orthodontic dental care follow treatment standards established by leading professional organizations and endorse the Non Extraction Treatment philosophy that continues to grow in popularity.
Prospective patients and their families seeking more specific information about our non-extraction policies and how new treatment options can affect their particular treatment needs are invited to contact Dr. Leventhal directly with our on-line Ask The Dentist form. Dr. Leventhal will respond to you directly with the objective information you are seeking.
