What’s New at 21st Century Dental?

Invisalign® is the invisible new way to straighten teeth without braces. Invisalign® uses a series of clear, removable aligners to gradually straighten teeth, without metal or wires.

Invisalign® uses 3-D computer imaging technology to depict the complete treatment plan from the initial position to the final desired position from which a series of custom-made "Aligners" are produced. Each "Aligner" moves teeth incrementally and is worn for about two weeks, then replaced by the next in the series until the final position is achieved.

As an incentive, we have been provided with some new digital cameras to give away with each new case started. Even if you already have a digital camera, the Olympus D-580 4MP Digital Camera with 3x Optical Zoom would make a very nice second camera to play around with.

If you have any questions about this exciting new technology, just contact us for a free consultation (or send your friends who have some orthodontic needs). If you want questions answered prior to coming in, feel free to e-mail us at Invisalign@21stCenturyDental.com.

Crowning Achievements

Kristin Wallerstedt - Hygienist –The voice of reason and true (to the core) health nut of the bunch, Kristin enjoys cycling, sailing, rollerblading, hiking, backpacking, skiing, scuba diving, and traveling.  She may even have at least one scar for each interest.  Her most recent accomplishment involved miles of pavement and concrete, a lake called White Rock, and an enormous amount of sustained, low-grade pain.

We’re proud to say, and it was no surprise to us, that Kristin conquered the White Rock Marathon in December 2004.  We haven’t heard what the next race or challenge will be, but stay tuned; it’s a new year for her so the next running or cycling challenge is surely looming.  Kristin is all about setting goals and then mowing them down, annually.

In or out of the office, Kristin exemplifies leadership, discipline and commitment, which translate magnificently to a busy, growing dental practice.  The 21st Century Dental family is blessed and thankful to have an experienced leader of her caliber on our team.  A jovial spirit on the clinic floor, we all look to her for her guidance and she is a recurring hit with so many of you, our loyal clients.

The love of her life and a man of equal caliber on all levels is Dr. Ken White.  A handsome face that many of you have met for root canal appointments, they share each other’s heart, a relentless passion for the great outdoors, and the next big challenge.  We are so proud of Kristin and hope you’ve enjoyed taking a deeper look inside the very special person behind the dental mask.

And now for a chance to win
