Small Family Practice
Dr. Iritani and Dr. Matt do the majority of the orthodontic work. It's one of the doctors, not a staff member, who puts on your braces or discusses treatment during the new patient consultation.
You have access to the doctors’ personal cell phone numbers, and should something come up, we encourage you to reach out. Relationships matter to us.
We offer Saturday appointments so your children do not necessarily have to miss school. We also plan our office hours around all school districts’ yearly calendars. Our new office is directly across the street from Cherry Creek High School. If you are a working parent whose children go to Creek or will be going Creek, they can walk over during an off period.
We can schedule your orthodontic and pediatric dental appointments on the same day so your child misses less school. If they are not yet in treatment or have already finished treatment, we can schedule observation or retainer check appointments on days they are already coming to our office. For new pediatric patients, we can offer same-day treatment in cases of emergency, swelling, or tooth-discomfort.
Both Dr. Iritani and Dr. Matt teach in the orthodontic residency program at the University of Colorado School of Dental Medicine. Together we have 30+ years of experience and are board certified by the American Board of Orthodontics. Dr. Megan is board certified by the American Board of Pediatric Dentistry.
We take hand/wrist radiographs to evaluate adolescent growth to determine the optimal time to treat. Evaluating growth plates in your hand gives us more detailed information than other methods, so we are better able to predict when to start in order to be in treatment the least amount of time.
We also bond braces using indirect bonding to 1) save time during the bonding appointment and 2) reduce overall treatment time by placing braces more accurately.
Retainers for Life
At the end of treatment, we can 3D print a set of your digital models. If in the future you misplace your retainers or they wear out, you can bring in your 3D printed models and we can make new retainers for a small copay.
