Advanced technology is our standard
We have "State-of-the-Art" technology to make your treatment as smooth and comfortable as possible, while obtaining the best results possible.

  • We use the Damon System of braces. This revolutionary system utilizes a unique passive self-ligating bracket, and very light forces to achieve results beyond previously conceived expectations. This system provides more comfort and shorter treatment times for our patients.
  • We offer clear braces.
  • We NEVER recycle our brackets!
  • A special sealant is applied to each tooth before bonding the brackets. According to a 2005 study published in the American Journal of Orthodontics and Dentofacial Orthopedics, this sealant can significantly decrease the chance of tooth enamel damage and decay while undergoing orthodontic treatment.
  • We utilize computer digital imaging which provide a cutting edge approach to diagnosis and treatment planning.
  • We offer Invisalign, which can correct minor problems without braces.
  • If needed, we offer combined treatment of orthodontics and surgery for severe jaw alignment abnormalities.
  • Every member of our staff regularly attends continuing education programs to stay up-to-date on the newest technologies available.
  • We utilize a computerized system which sends appointment reminders via your email or via a text message to your phone.
  • Through our website, you can make payments, check your balance, and look up your next appointment.

Convenient and Affordable Financial Options
We offer a variety of payment options, including:

  • Down payment and equal monthly payments with no interest charge.
  • Automatic Payments, using a credit card, debit card, or bank account.
  • Online payments.
  • Care Credit Financing. In some cases this can allow lower monthly payments.

Complimentary Evaluation: Prevention is the key
The American Association of Orthodontics recommends that children should receive their first orthodontic evaluation by age 7. Dr. Mattiacio believes in preventative or interceptive orthodontic treatment. By 7 years of age, Dr. Mattiacio can tell you if your child is expressing any unusual growth patterns. Recognizing these problems at this age can make treatment easier and simpler, in most cases preventing the need for extractions or surgery and alleviating harmful habits in the future. Most times, no early interceptive treatment is required and Dr. Mattiacio provides a complimentary service of monitoring the child’s growth and development. This provides his families with PEACE OF MIND knowing that he is carefully watching their child’s growth and development.

Clear communication and a conservative approach
We often provide second opinions for patients who are unclear about their treatment options. We welcome the opportunity to communicate in a manner that makes sense. Examinations and consultations are complimentary. We pride ourselves on creating the most beautiful smiles by using a conservative approach to treatment planning. Surgery and extractions are avoided whenever possible.

Community Involvement
Dr. Mattiacio lives and works in Farmington, NY and believes that giving back to his community is important. Dr. Mattiacio conducts Continuing Educational programs for area dentists and hygienists, teaches local second grade students about the importance of good oral health, and supports local sports teams, clubs, and charities.
