While becoming a dentist had been a lifelong dream of Dr. Irina Volkova, it wasn’t always her profession. Back in her native Ukraine, Dr. Volkova earned a master’s degree in linguistics and worked in education and personal fitness. It wasn’t until her move to the States that she hit the books again, earning a bachelor’s degree in chemistry and a Doctor of Dental Surgery degree. Now at the helm of her own practice, Dr. Volkova aims to make her patients as comfortable as possible, taking the time to answer questions, providing free WiFi, and offering tea to drink or bathe in.

Dr. K. Hyder, a second-generation dentist and member of the American Dental Association, straightens serrations with Invisalign treatments molded to each clients’ specific needs. Invisalign straightens crooked chompers with a combination of highly advanced, 3-D computer graphics and the spells of old-fashioned orthodontia. The Invisalign process eschews cumbersome braces for clear, removable aligners that are virtually invisible to the unclothed eye. An initial exam, including x-rays, photos, and impressions of your mouth terrain, paves the way for a flurry of calibrated teeth sheaths that are designed to slowly shift walnut crackers into perfect alignment. Patients return to Dr. K’s dental office for routine check-ups to ensure their mouth pearls continue to shift into their new alignment without issue. View some Invisalign FAQs here.
