Our Mission Statement
Pezza Orthodontics is committed to providing exceptional orthodontic care and unparalleled personalized service. Our goal is to maintain the highest standard of orthodontic treatment using advanced techniques and state-of-the-art technology, as well as delivering individualized attention to our patients and their families. Our practice continues to evolve to stay current with the accepted standard-of-care in orthodontic treatment and to meet the changing needs of our patients. Over the past 50 years we have earned the loyalty, trust and confidence of the people we serve. We want our patients to leave with a positive, lasting experience and an amazing smile for a lifetime.
We have HIGH STANDARDS. We provide comprehensive treatment planning to address the individual needs of every patient. We are an all-digital, paperless, latex-free office, and we use the latest techniques and state-of-the-art equipment to deliver optimal results.
PREVENTATIVE CARE is the foundation of a healthy smile. As a specialty practice we believe in the importance in maintaining overall dental health. Before orthodontic treatment can begin, we make sure that every patient starts with a clean healthy mouth. Further we believe that preventative care and education are the keys to optimal oral health. We strive to provide our patients oral hygiene instructions and strongly recommend that our patients continue to visit their general dentist regularly while they are in our care for orthodontics.
We use UNCOMPROMISING SAFETY to protect our patients and ourselves. Infection control in our office is very important. We strictly maintain sterilization processes using standards recommended by the American Dental Association, the Occupational Safety and Health Administration and the Centers for Disease Control. Our digital x-ray unit significantly reduces the amount of radiation that our patients are exposed to, compared to traditional x-rays. We have multiple HEPA-13 air purification units. We disinfect commonly touched surfaces daily and have a professional commerical cleaning service that comes regularly. Please see our COVID-19 page for further information about how we keep our patients and team healthy.
CONTINUOUS TRAINING is critical to staying current with our profession. As providers of your orthodontic care, we want you to be confident knowing that we are a team of highly trained and skilled clinicians. We attend regional and national orthodontic conferences and local meetings to stay informed of cutting-edge techniques, the latest products and the newest equipment. We collect many hours of continuing education credits every year. Dr. Greg is a member of the prestigious Seattle Study Club and the Providence Dental Study Club. Being members of local and national organizations helps us to stay abreast of the changing recommendations for our profession.
We want our patients to have a POSITIVE EXPERIENCE. Building a foundation of trust by treating our patients as individuals is vital to our success. A positive patient experience is our focus every day. Our doctors are available 24/7 and personally handle any after-hour questions or emergencies. We know our patients and families are very busy so our email and text message appointment reminders help keep everything organized. Our interactive smartphone app helps to connect our patients to our office 24 hours/day. Our complimentary WiFi allows parents and families to be productive while in our office. We understand how uneasy some patients can feel about their orthodontic visits. Our entire team is dedicated to providing you with excellent, personalized care to make your visits as comfortable and pleasant as possible. We know our patients by name and we are excited to welcome you to the famous Pezza Ortho family.
