At Fende Orthodontics, Dr. Stacie D. Fenderson's experience has taught her two important lessons about her patients: they don't want to spend much time in braces, and they don't want them to be seen. To that effect, Dr. Fenderson incorporates a variety of techniques to make each patient's treatment as quick, effective, and invisible as possible. Among her methods, she uses digital x-rays to make instant diagnoses, prefers functional appliances over cumbersome equipment such as headgear, and places brackets accurately to ensure a quick treatment time. To keep braces out of sight, the office depends on Damon-brand brackets or Invisalign clear aligners, both of which help treat smiles without the tell-tale "Under Construction" signs of ordinary braces. During visits, the staff keeps guests comfortable with such comforts as iPads loaded with games, a beverage bar, and free WiFi.
