Why Choose an Orthodontist:

A general dentist is similar to your family doctor – great for check-ups and filling cavities. Orthodontists like Dr. Zane are dentists who have two to three years of additional education, and are experts in the science and art of aligning the teeth and the jaws and improving the balance of the lips and the facial profile.

MISSION STATEMENT

We believe in providing exceptional, customized, and precise orthodontic care to all patients seeking our services, regardless of race, religion, ethnicity, age, sexual orientation, gender identity, socioeconomic status, physical ability, or developmental difference. All means all.

We are honest and transparent in all of our conversations and actions. We believe in community, treating our neighbors as we treat ourselves and offering open arms and open hearts to the underserved.

CORE VALUES

Access to Affordable Care: We identify with both single parents and working families who have a limited income and are on a tight budget.  We understand that you have bills and must make choices. We do not want limited finances to stand in the way of you or your child obtaining treatment, and are committed to providing affordable care at competitive rates. We welcome all insurance, and we will take care of seeking pre-authorization and approval.

Quality of Care: We strive to provide the most thorough, precise, and timely care to all of our patients, by harnessing skill, technology and evidence-based research. We believe in thorough and transparent conversations with you in order to keep you informed of treatment options and treatment progression.

Confidence: We are, without question, the best orthodontic care providers. Dr. Zane is Ivy League-trained, having graduated at the top of his class at the University of Pennsylvania School of Dental Medicine and his postdoctoral orthodontics residency at Temple Kornberg School of Dentistry.  He taught orthodontics for three years as an adjunct clinical instructor at Temple while practicing orthodontics full-time in the Philadelphia area. In August 2016 he was chosen by his colleagues and residents as the faculty member of the year and received the Kornberg School of Dentistry’s Orhan Tuncay Excellence in Teaching award.

Efficiency: We believe in greeting you as soon as you arrive at our office, offering the best hospitality you have ever received at a medical office, and creating an environment in which you look forward to returning. We strive to maintain a “no-wait” schedule. Both the administrative and clinical staff follow checklists to ensure that we maintain the highest level of service and avoid mistakes. We strive to anticipate and prevent problems before they arise.

Consistency:  Dr. Zane takes great pride in communicating effectively with patients, parents, assistants, and other dentists so that everyone is on the same page and has a clear understanding of the treatment plan. We are not a corporate or chain dental practice. Dr. Zane is the sole owner and operator. We are a practice where we call you by your first name, ask you to do the same, and are available for you to reach us 24 hours a day.

Hospitality: We believe in maintaining the highest standard of concierge service where we treat everyone who walks through the door as if they were a family member. We believe that hospitality begins with the way our staff treat each other. We hope you will find a group of positive and upbeat people who care about you and one another. We love what we do, and we believe that we’re in a position to help change people’s lives for the better.
