Modern Treatment

Why choose

The Ortho Institute concept represents a major step forward in modern orthodontic treatment. We consider that crooked teeth are not a problem, but a symptom caused by an imbalance happening in another area of ​​the face or sometimes in the body, thus the treatment we offer is holistic and integrative.

Our philosophy is based on caring for our patient, through education, prevention, customized optimal solutions, but also through innovation. We explain, we listen carefully, we constantly learn, and we stand by your side both during the treatment, as experts, and also after its conclusion, as friends.

Here for You

Prevention, prophylaxis and counseling

We strongly support preventive medicine. Early diagnosis is an essential part of the treatment process and we emphasize its importance as the facial bones are stiffened between the ages of 7 and 10 years. We recommend the first orthodontic consultation at the age of 3.

We are here to help the developing teeth to grow healthy and beautiful.

Prevention services are completed by dental hygiene, oral health and facial aesthetic counseling. Autoimmunity can be managed through nutrition, mindfulness, functional medicine and lifestyle.



We want to inspire you to transform your lifestyle. We have created special programs in order to motivate you to develop healthy behaviors, to prevent relapses and to maintain the health of your teeth, in relation to the whole body. We consider that balance is the best measure both in your life and for... your teeth.

Kid Friendly

Because we recommend the first visit to the orthodontist around the age of 3, our specialists are trained to interact with small children, in order to make them feel comfortable and to cooperate. We encourage parents to get involved in the treatment process and to pay attention to each step. Together, we help children's teeth develop harmoniously.

Education and counseling

Our relationship starts with a relaxed and exhaustive talk about your needs as a patient in our clinic, as well as on how we can work together to accomplish them. After you attend a free information seminar, we examine together your medical history and afterwards we will send you your custom case report.
