Orthodontics Associates Focus On Affordable Service For The Whole Family


By Darrell Mak
No longer only for teens and adolescents, orthodontia is becoming more popular for adults these days as a variety of new technologies is starting to make traditional metal braces a thing of the past.
The professionals at Orthodontic Associates promote patient-focused orthodontics based on leading-edge treatment in a warm and friendly environment. The practice consists of five doctors, including Drs. Jeffrey Miller, Heather Abrahams, David Williams, Aaron Schaeffer and Stacy Lee, all of whom are members of the American Association of Orthodontists.
“We provide a priceless smile at an affordable price,” affirmed Miller, who founded Orthodontic Associates after merging his practice with Schaeffer in 1984.

Orthodontic Associates is dedicated to providing the very finest orthodontic treatment available and its team of doctors has been highly trained to consider all aspects that will affect your orthodontic success, including facial form, profile, oral health, and tooth shape.
Today, more and more adults are having orthodontic work done. Miller noted adult patients have grown to 35 percent of the practice. At Orthodontic Associates, all the doctors are specialists in orthodontics for adults and children. By limiting the practice exclusively to providing the very finest orthodontic care, it can focus efforts to provide optimal treatment for its patients.
All Orthodontic Associates doctors are certified Invisalign providers, a popular option for those who dislike the look and feel of traditional metal braces. Invisalign uses a series of invisible, removable, and comfortable aligners without using metal and wires. In realigning the teeth, it is important that all aspects of the face and jaw bones be considered.
“Our goal is to provide our patients with beautiful smiles that improve their overall facial esthetics,” noted Miller. “Meeting these goals, our patients will experience better oral health for a lifetime.”
Miller is a Board-Certified Orthodontist with over 20 years experience specializing in orthodontics for adults and children. He graduated summa cum laude from Towson University and received his dental degree from the University of Maryland. He completed his orthodontic training at the State University of New York at Buffalo. He stays current on orthodontic techniques including lingual (behind the teeth) braces and Invisalign certification.
Miller has been very interested in orthodontic research and is a benefactor of the American Association of Orthodontist Foundation. Miller’s well-respected opinion is frequently sought by other orthodontists facing difficult cases.
In addition to Invisalign, Orthodontic Associates offers a wide-range of other treatment options to produce the best possible smile, including traditional metal braces, ceramic braces, and lingual braces.
They also offer a free initial consultation so patients can learn more about their choices. During the initial consultation, the patient will meet with one of the highly trained orthodontists, who will provide a thorough examination. The doctor will then discuss treatment recommendations and answer any questions.
Orthodontic Associates has eight offices in Maryland, including its Severna Park office on Baltimore-Annapolis Blvd.
“You’ll leave us smiling,” assured Miller with a smile.
