Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

Treatment can vary depending on the severity of each case and on the motivation of each patient. Because of the modern technology and advanced orthodontic systems used by Dr. Berkman, Dr. Shapiro, and Dr. Shoukri, you may be surprised to hear that treatment will not last as long as you may suspect! At your first appointment, you will be given an estimate of the length of your specific treatment.

Braces do not have to hurt! Some pressure is normal, because the teeth are slowly moving through bone to their new positions. The special miniature brackets and new “space-age” wires used by Berkman & Shapiro Orthodontics provide some of the most gentle forces available, so that soreness is minimized and you can forget you’re even wearing braces.

Costs usually vary depending on the type of treatment required. We value the benefits of a beautiful, healthy smile, and do not want financial concerns to be an obstacle to successful treatment. Therefore, we offer a variety of payment and financing options – including no interest options! As a courtesy, we also offer multiple sibling (or family member) discounts. All costs will be discussed up-front, at your consultation. Today, orthodontics is more affordable than ever!

Today, many insurance plans provide some type of orthodontic benefit. Our knowledgeable staff will work with you to maximize your benefit, so that financial concerns do not become a barrier to a healthy, lasting smile.

The American Association of Orthodontists ( recommends that your child be evaluated by age 7. An early examination allows the orthodontist to determine how and when a child’s particular problem should be treated for maximum improvement and the best result. Many times, early intervention can be invaluable to successful treatment. In these cases, early treatment can achieve results that would be unattainable once the face and jaws have completed growing.

Darker shades like royal/navy blue, purple, and even black can make the color of your teeth appear whiter. Even so, be aware that colors like dark green and brown can look like food. For more color tips click here.

Financing Options Available

Dollar for dollar, the cost of braces is one of the best investments you can make in your overall appearance and health. To help make the cost of braces more manageable, we offer a variety of low down payment and no-interest payment options.

We will work with you to find the right financing plan for you.
