Did you know that there is an prime time for a child to see an orthodontist? The American Association of Orthodontists suggests that the first orthodontic exam should be done at the first sign of orthodontic issues or no later than age 7. At this young age, orthodontic treatment may not be necessary, but a short examination can help pinpoint the most beneficial time to start treatment. This also helps achieve the best results with the smallest amont of time and money.
Even if a child is not ready for orthodontic treatment just yet, visiting an orthodontist is still beneficial. They will be able to watch the development of the teeth and set a time when treatment should begin.
Age 7 is the optimal age to first see an orthodontist because the first adult molars have come in. It allows the teeth to be completely evaluated at all angles for bite.
At Wellesley Dental Group, Dr. Emad Abdallah, our orthodontist, is happy to provide a free consultation to evaluate your orthodontic needs. Call us today at 781-237-9071 to schedule an appointment!

We can all agree that straight teeth are aesthetically pleasing. However, did you know that there are health benefits as well? Having straight teeth helps you maintain overall good health. Invisalign is the clear, virtually undetectable way to straighten teeth without brackets and wires. Using this system is a great way to achieve optimum oral health without anyone knowing you're straightening your teeth.
One of the main benefits is healthier teeth and gums. A cause of inflamed, red gums can be crowded or widely spaced teeth. It can also be a sign of periodontal disease. When teeth are correctly aligned, the gums fit around the teeth more snugly. This is the best defense against developing gum problems. Invisalign can easily shift your teeth into alignment, giving you the ultimate dream smile!
Braces are often times hard to clean. Food gets stuck between the brackets and wires, and without proper removal, tooth decay can develop. Invisalign uses removable aligners that are taken out to eat, brush, and floss. No more trapped food!
Straight teeth will lead to great overall health, too. Untreated gum disease and tooth decay can lead to a multitude of problems in the future. Studies conducted by the American Dental Association show that oral infections can lead to the development of serious health problems such as heart disease, stroke, and diabetes.
If you've been thinking about straightening your teeth, now is the time! Wellesley Dental Group is having an Invisalign Special Event on September 27, 2012 from 3pm-6pm. Drs. Ali and Ali will provide free consultations to see if Invisalign is right for you. You will also receive a complimentary teeth whitening worth $550 with your scheduled treatment.
Also, part of the proceeds will be donated to the Wellesley Food Pantry, a wonderful organization committed to helping others. Space is limited so call today to schedule your appointment at 781-237-9071!

We recently received the below review on Yelp. We are truly speechless and touched by our patient's kind words and comments. Thank you so very much!
"After a negative experience at another local dentist, I followed my friends' advice and took my then 2.5 year old twins to see Dr. Femina Ali at Wellesley Dental Group. Immediately, she put my children's minds at ease--even conducting my daughter's dental exam in a waiting room chair when she was too nervous to sit in the big dental chair. Dr Ali's patience and natural ability with children has had such a positive impact on my children that they actually LOOK FORWARD to their semi-annual cleanings and visits.
Once we saw firsthand their high level of service and dedication at the Pediatric level and realized that they work with adults as well, my husband and I switched for our own dental visits as well. Now we all go as a family, which I feel sets an especially good example for my kids. They see that we're making our dental care a priority, so they are as well. My husband and I have both needed fillings in the past five years, and Dr. Ejaz Ali is an absolute perfectionist (which we love)! Using cutting edge technology, he makes a mold to not only fill the tooth, but to make it a seamless match that will last a lifetime and look like it was always part of the tooth. He did such a great job that I opted to have my previous fillings taken out and replaced with his handiwork. My teeth look great and my smile is brighter and healthier than ever!
In addition to Drs. Femina and Ejaz Ali, I also have to mention their staff. They employ a team of people who are warm, engaging, and passionate about dental health. In the office and representing the practice around town, they make everyone feel welcome and take a genuine interest in each patient. They even help entertain our kids while we're having our teeth cleaned!
Over the years, we have used their Oral Surgeon Dr. Ghazi to extract numerous teeth from both children. He has the gentlest touch and always took great care to make it quick, easy, and painless for my children. My children have also seen Dr. Emad--their orthodontist--to have their teeth evaluated for future orthodonture needs. As a busy working mom, I am so grateful to have these services offered in-house, so I don't have to go elsewhere. It makes it so much easier for me, especially knowing their high standard of care.
All in all, we can't say enough about the Wellesley Dental Group. They are what every dental practice should be. After six years as patients and friends of the Wellesley Dental Group -- we wouldn't trust our teeth and smiles to anyone else!!" - Joanna
