The tooth fairy still rewards adults who keep their teeth nice, leaving grown-up gifts, such as issues of the Economist and Pontiac Azteks, under their pillows. Grin and win with today's Groupon: for $2,999, you get a full Invisalign treatment at Westchester Smile Design in Yonkers and Mount Kisco (a $7,700 value).
With more than 50 years of combined experience, the dental staff at Westchester Smile Design straightens smiles with the latest advances in dental technology. Virtually imperceptible Invisalign treatments use a series of clear plastic trays to nudge teeth into ideal formations and archive molar wear for dental-themed time capsules. On the initial office visit, clinicians snap “before” photos of the patient’s bite line and take impressions used to create a set of custom aligners. Patients wear their trays throughout the day, rotating to a new set as recommended by the dentist and stopping into the office for refinements as needed. Much like a bake sale at a laundromat, the dental suite conveys a spa-like atmosphere with complimentary cookies and warm towels.

As a teenager, Dr. Stacie Calian worked as an assistant in several dentists’ offices, which inspired her to later work as a dental hygienist and earn two masters degrees from Columbia University. From there, she left the practice to join academia, but she couldn’t resist the siren song of the dentist’s drill; soon after, she received a doctoral degree from Georgetown University School of Dentistry and amassed more than 18 years of clinical experience. Now, at her office, Dr. Calian and her team of smile stylists use a variety of high-tech instruments—from digital x-rays to Zoom! whitening lights and lasers that penetrate teeth without the heat, vibration, and pressure of the typical tiny chainsaws. Within a spa-like atmosphere, the staff performs services including Invisalign, Lumineers, and dental implants—procedures Dr. Calian is always looking to improve by furthering her training through continuing education.
