Invisalign and Propel Night


Main Street Dentists held an open house last Friday evening to discuss Invisalign and Propel.  Propel is an exciting new accelerant to any orthodontic treatment–traditional braces or clear Invisalign aligners–that cuts treatment time in half.  For those who weren’t able to make it on Friday, be sure to ask about Propel at your next visit.

Here are some photos we took before the event started.





If you would like to receive an invitation to a future open house, please let us know at your next appointment. We are excited to share information about Propel with you!

PROPEL® Your Way to a Brand New Smile …Faster.

In our continuous commitment to provide the best orthodontic care to our patients, we are excited to offer PROPEL® technology at Main Street Dentists in our Verona office. With PROPEL®, Drs. John and Kate Schacherl can finish orthodontic treatment in less time than traditional orthodontics. This means fewer appointments and less treatment time.

What is PROPEL® Orthodontics?

PROPEL® works with your own biology by stimulating the bone surrounding your teeth and accelerating orthodontic treatment time. At Main Street Dentists, we offer PROPEL® as a partner with a variety of orthodontic treatments, including Invisalign and Damon Braces. Simply put, you’ll finish your treatment with exceptional results in less time and with fewer office visits.

Here’s the science. The PROPEL® System uses a university research-based, patented process called Alveocentesis to stimulate bone in patients undergoing orthodontic treatment. Alveocentesis works by increasing cytokine activity so that teeth move 50 percent (or more) faster.

How can PROPEL® Orthodontics help me?

A beautiful smile builds confidence. Proper tooth alignment improves dental function and can prevent dental disease. PROPEL® Orthodontics can work to expedite the orthodontic process. The PROPEL® system will help your teeth move and tissues heal faster than they ever could with traditional orthodontic treatment alone.

PROPEL® Orthodontics with Invisalign or Damon Braces

Ask us if PROPEL® Orthodontics together with Invisalign or Damon Braces will be a good match for you. We can’t wait to create your beautiful smile. Give us a call at 845-6127 to set up your no-cost orthodontic consultation.

January 14-19, 2014 Drs. John and Kate, along with Dental Assistants Brenda, Jean and Jaika, traveled to Phoenix, Arizona for the Damon Forum, an international orthodontic conference on the Damon Bracket System.  Over the multi-day conference they heard lectures from doctors from around the globe in large and small group formats.  With over 1100 doctors and team members in attendance, it was a unique learning opportunity.

Dr. John has been using the Damon System for several years and Dr. Kate will now be offering this system to her patients.  The Damon System allows for more efficient tooth movement which means shorter times in braces for all patients. Ask us about the Damon System the next time you’re in the office.

IMG_1324What’s up with the red and green tabs?

The plastic colored tabs are on while the brackets are placed to help ensure the doctors have the brackets in the perfect position.  They pop right off when the brackets are bonded on–they won’t go home with you!




A highlight was the Great Gatsby-themed dinner on Friday night.

Welcome to February…

Wow, January was a busy month!  Expect 3 blog updates in February.

First up, Dr. John spent a week in Scottsdale, AZ at the Damon Brackets annual orthodontics symposium.  Damon Brackets is a super-fast, super-cool new way to have wire braces.  The system is faster and more effective than traditional braces because of the technology placed into the brackets and wires.  If you aren’t a candidate for Invisalign, ask if Damon Brackets would work for you!

In the picture below, check out the size difference in the brackets—also, no rubber bands to draw more attention to your teeth!

Next week, read about Dr. Kate’s CEREC 1-visit crown training at the Scottsdale Center for Dentistry!  Also, we have some very exciting news from the front office regarding new upgrades to enhance your office experience.
