Delivering awesome smiles in less time

When Dr. Tom Kadar was a kid, he underwent orthodontic treatment. He visited his orthodontist for an initial evaluation, returned multiple times to have impressions taken, spacers inserted, bands attached and then finally the wires added. From his initial visit to actually starting his treatment was more than 6 weeks. Once the braces were in place, monthly visits were required to adjust and tighten the wires. The entire process took more than two years.

When Dr. Kadar started practicing orthodontics almost 30 years ago, the cutting-edge technology utilized cemented brackets and wires. It still took several weeks of work before a patient could begin their treatment and more than 24 months to complete the process. Not much had changed since he was a kid.

In the late 90’s, the process of straightening teeth radically changed when clear aligners came onto the market. Kadar Orthodontics was one of the first practices in the Delaware Valley to offer clear aligners. Adults and teens love them because you can barely see them and they are easily removable for presentations, sporting or social events.

Fast forward to today. The technology used to manufacture removable aligners has evolved significantly. At Kadar Orthodontics, it no longer takes weeks to get started straightening your teeth — it’s all done in a single day with their Same Day Start Program.

“This program allows us to use virtual technology to perform a remote consultation before a patient visits the office for the first time,” says Dr. Tom Kadar. “We can then create a treatment plan for each patient ahead of time, before their first in-person visit. This enables us to deliver a Same Day Start for traditional braces, appliances and removable aligners.”

When the treatment plan calls for removable aligners, Kadar’s in-house lab manufactures them on-demand during the patient’s first visit. The team at Kadar uses advanced 3D scanners and printers to create the custom aligners. Their expert, licensed clinicians fit the aligners and provide wear and care instructions on Day 1 … not weeks later. Plus, in-house production of aligners gives Kadar’s orthodontists the flexibility to make adjustments to aligners when needed to ensure treatment stays on track without logistical delays.

“For more complex cases such as crowding and airway abnormalities, we use advanced appliances or braces in conjunction with removable aligners to achieve ideal results,” explains Dr. Kadar. “This hybrid approach provides our patients with the latest treatment methods to minimize pain, tooth extractions and treatment times.”

Regardless of the type of braces or appliances utilized, the team of professionals at Kadar Orthodontics monitors and adjusts each patient’s treatment plan based on growth, development and tooth movement through both in-office visits and contactless follow-up appointments. “Our virtual visits give our patients a way to check in from home,” says Dr. Tom Kadar. “Innovations in orthodontic technology reduced the number of appointments required to complete a treatment plan. Now, our virtual appointments give us a new way to save time for our patients.”

By combining proven processes with the latest in virtual technology, Dr. Kadar has enabled his patients to start their journey to straight teeth during their first visit. Patients leave the office on their way to a beautiful smile, quicker than ever!


The journey to an awesome smile starts with three easy steps


STEP 1: SCAN. Using a digital scanner, a virtual model of the patient’s teeth is generated in about 5 minutes.


STEP 2: CREATE. The orthodontists at Kadar Orthodontics review the scan, x-rays and medical history and create a treatment plan to straighten and correct any bite issues. Then the Ksmile aligners are fabricated using their in-house 3D printer system.



STEP 3: FIT. The expert clinicians verify the fit of the Ksmile aligners and show each patient how to wear and care for them.
