2019 has been a year of expansion for Grove Dental Group. First, it was the new location on 1286 Penn Avenue. Now, we’ve redesigned the second floor of our State Hill Road office so that it’s entirely devoted to Orthodontics! We’ve been providing orthodontic services for years now, but due to our practice’s growth we’ve decided to expand — meaning more availability and more flexibility for our patients.
The new Orthodontics Loft will include 5 more chairs that will help us get you in and out of our office with minimal wait times. Also, the state of the art equipment being added to the Loft will ensure that the care you receive is of the highest quality. We want every patient to leave the Orthodontics Loft with a smile they can be proud of, and that’s why we’re making sure to give them the space and accommodations they need in this beautiful, handicapped-accessible office.
Our Orthodontic Services
We will continue to offer traditional metal braces with our orthodontist, Dr. Kristin. Metal braces are a cost-effective option that are stronger and more durable than other orthodontic treatment options. Their versatility allows our experts to tackle the most severe cases of misaligned, spaced out and crowded teeth. Available in various designs and colors, metal braces can add fun and variety for the kids and teenagers who usually wear them. Finally, a metal brace treatment is often faster than other brace options. The treatment period typically lasts anywhere from 15-18 months, after which we’ll have your smile looking as great as ever!
In addition to traditional metal braces, we offer Invisalign for both teens and adults at Grove. We are a Diamond Plus Invisalign Provider, which signifies that we complete at least 200 Invisalign treatments every six months. Invisalign and Invisalign Teen work well because we create a series of aligners customized for your bite using the latest technology, all meant to steadily guide your teeth into the right place. We also offer Invisalign Express, which is meant for patients who’ve had previous orthodontic treatment and need some readjusting. The treatment period for Invisalign Express is around 9-12 months. Here is a video by Dr. Sara Lamichane who goes over the Invisalign treatment in more depth:
Our Orthodontics team will be happy to go over the pros and cons of each treatment and help you select the best option for your unique needs.
Meet Our Orthodontists!
Dr. Kristin Connors, DDS, MSD and Dr. Sara Lamichane, DMD will be the main doctors in charge of the Orthodontics loft, so get used to their smiling faces! Dr. Kristin was born and raised in Lancaster, PA and graduated from Pennsylvania State University with her B.A. and then went on to complete dental school at the University of Maryland. Dr. Kristin then added to her credentials by getting her master’s degree and specialty training in Orthodontics at the University of Colorado. To her, the most important part of the process is making new patients feel like part of the family at Grove Dental, and letting them go with a new, beautiful smile that they can be proud of.
Dr. Sara is a born-and-raised local as well, graduating from Manheim Township HS. She then went on to get her B.A. and D.M.D. from Bucknell and Temple University, respectively.
