When it comes to choosing an orthodontics practice, there may be a few offices in town, but Forest Park Orthodontics offers four reasons to trust their office with your smile.
1. Orthodontists who are Simply the Best: Dr. Paul DiFranco was born to be an orthodontist. As a third generation dentist, Dr. Paul knew at an early age that he wanted to continue the family name in orthodontics. “I enjoyed the lasting bond that formed between my family members and their patients. This is especially the case in Orthodontics.” Dr. Ami Rakalla is one of the few female orthodontists in the near west suburbs, and like Dr. Paul, she 
knew from an early age that she wanted to work in dentistry. “I shadowed a dentist in high school, and knew then that was the field for me. While in dental school at UIC, something clicked during the orthodontics program. I loved it and went on to complete my orthodontic residency at Marquette.”
2. The Latest in Technology and Techniques: From the Damon Braces System, which provides extraordinary results in less time to Invisalign clear aligners for teenagers and adults, Dr. Paul and Dr. Ami work to choose the latest, most comfortable treatments for their patients. The doctors are also trained in surgical orthodontics, working to treat any jaw problems that may be affecting alignment.
3. Specialization in Treatment of Patients of All Ages: With complimentary observation appointments for children and adults, Forest Park Orthodontics works with families to determine the optimal start time for treatment.  According to Dr. Ami, “People are often surprised that the AAO (American Association of Orthodontists) recommends a consult around age 7, before all the baby teeth are gone. Many of our patients are children, but the AAO recognizes that one in every five orthodontic patients is over the age of twenty one, and we strive to make the experience ideal for adults as well.” The practice offers private treatment rooms for adult patients and ease of scheduling to accommodate work and commuting hours.
4. A Personal Approach: From a waiting room complete with free Wifi and a gaming area, to the modern treatment bays and soothing artwork, Forest Park Orthodontics understands the need for a comfortable setting. An on-site insurance specialist, along with easy financing and payment options, makes navigating the health care system a breeze. With a bilingual staff, electronic record keeping, and convenient weekend, and early morning and evening office hours, Forest Park Orthodontics makes it easy to fit appointments into your schedule.
October is National Orthodontic Health month, and Forest Park Orthodontics celebrates with their patients and the community. On October 18, the office will sponsor Oak Park’s Frank Lloyd Wright Races Youth Mile, continuing a tradition of giving back to the community. In the spirit of bringing healthy smiles to the community, the office is also offering $250 off treatment that begins before November 30, 2015.  Located at 1129 S. Harlem Ave. in Forest Park, Forest Park Orthodontics looks forward to welcoming you into the practice.
