Orthodontist Closes PermanentlyIn Feb 2015, the dental profession took a step back with the surprise closing of an orthodontic practice in Brunswick, Ohio.  Many parents and patients were left without an orthodontic home for their continued specialty care.  The following is a public letter from Dr. Samuel G. Papandreas of Papandreas Orthodontics.

‘My heart goes out to those families so many of which I have already had the privilege of visiting with.  This is a travesty.  Orthodontists as a whole work very hard to earn and hold the trust of their patients, colleagues, and surrounding community.  While we all face challenges with our healthcare, your doctor disappearing in the middle of care is not one of them.  These patients must now find a new practice with much of their fee paid and insurance gone while still in braces and no defined end in sight.

I have been encouraged by the outpouring of support from my specialty colleagues.  Out there are many compassionate doctors willing to pick up on a plan they did not start, at fees resulting in a true loss to them just to help.  I ask the affected patients to do their research; be sure your new doctor is approachable, well-respected in the community, and a certified specialist to ensure your maximum result in the shortest timeline…this last time.

Your new home and spectacular smile is out there; as difficult as it may seem do not lose faith in the orthodontic community.

For my part Papandreas Orthodontics as of yesterday has added new hours in Brunswick to accommodate these patients.  My team is committed to contributing our resources, time, and effort with minimal cost to help.  Do not hesitate to call Brunswick (330) 558-9092 or North Royalton (440) 582-8585,  or email us at Smile@DrPapandreas.com for guidance.’

Papandreas Orthodontics proudly announces the launch of a new website designed to offer visitors an exceptional online experience. The website’s fully integrated, cutting edge features enable both ease of navigation and more direct information accessibility.

“Our mission is to provide the highest level of specialty orthodontics and dentofacial orthopedics for all of our patients within a caring environment. We empower each individual to explore, define and realize their unique goals for an optimum lifetime result,” says Dr. Samuel Papandreas, a Northeast Ohio native and founder of Papandreas IMG_5776Orthodontics. “We know that orthodontic care can be a big and exciting but sometimes anxious process. Our innovative new website fosters an additional level of comfort and trust in me and our team.”

Dr. Papandreas plans to use the freshly constructed website to showcase his Brunswick and North Royalton locations. Visitors will be immediately drawn to the website’s clean and welcoming format. Innovations such as Google Office View allow guests to take a tour of each office right from their own homes or phones. Dr. Papandreas himself greets visitors via video and YouTube links. Other online videos allow new patients to see and hear about the Papandreas Orthodontics treatment experience from current and finished patients. The new website also offers enhanced patient education portals, including explanations of common orthodontic terms and procedures, what to expect during office visits and an easy to navigate FAQ for visitors seeking even more information.

Dr. Papandreas and his team have given particular attention to the integration of social media into the new website design. Visitors will easily find links to online networks such as Facebook, Pinterest and Instagram. Instant access to social media platforms allows Papandreas Orthodontics to reach out to the community and better connect with patients.  Visitors can use those same online gateways to become better acquainted with and participate in the Papandreas Orthodontics experience!

Papandreas Orthodontics in N. Royalton and Brunswick OH is setting the record straight. All toothbrushes are NOT alike. Read more on Be Careful When Choosing Your Toothbrush…

Invisalign Myths N Royalton OHIt can be a scary experience when you are given a referral to see an orthodontist or considering improving your smile. Braces are grounds for embarrassment for the self-conscious teen and the up-and-coming professional. Having a mouth full of metal to clean around, eat around, and live around can be daunting.

The option that many may overlook when searching for orthodontic treatment is Invisalign, the nearly invisible alternative to braces. Some people may write this treatment option off due to price or success rate – but we’re here to bust those myths! Read more on Addressing Some Invisalign Myths…
