Feb 03, 2016 /prREACH/ -- Pompano Beach, FL. Top Dental Pros has awarded Dr. Alan Slootsky the prestigious Five Star Achievement Award for his extraordinary success using the Invisalign system to improve patients’ smiles and boost their confidence. Dr. Slootsky is the only dentist in the Pompano Beach area to receive this recognition. Dr. Slootsky has extensive experience in restorative dentistry, and has trained with some of the world’s most prominent restorative dental specialists.
Dr. Slootsky attended Rutgers University in New Brunswick, New Jersey and graduated from the College of Medicine and Dentistry in Newark, New Jersey (now called Rutgers School of Dental Medicine). Dr. Slootsky also obtained a Fellowship from the Academy of General Dentistry (FAGD), and a Mastership of the Academy of General Dentistry (MAGD). He is a Fellow of the American College of Dentists, and a member of the American Dental Association, Florida Dental Association, Broward Dental Association, Southeastern Academy of Prosthodontics, and the Pankey Institute. He is also listed in the “Guide to America’s Top Dentists” of the Consumers’ Research Council.
Dr. Slootsky is Co-Chair of the advanced crown and bridge class at the Atlantic Coast Dental Research Clinic and has lectured to dentists, doctors and hygienists on Temporomandibular Joint Dysfunction (TMJ). He has appeared on TV and radio educating the public on current issues in dentistry.
Dr. Slootsky takes thousands of hours in dental continuing education and is committed to maintaining the highest standards of dentistry possible with the latest technology and equipment, including Invisalign.
The Invisalign system by Align Technology is a revolutionary approach to straightening teeth quickly, comfortably, and virtually invisibly through a series of clear, custom-made aligners. Each set of aligners is made of smooth, comfortable plastic worn over your teeth. Changing to new aligners approximately every two weeks throughout the treatment period allows your teeth to shift into their proper positions gradually and comfortably. The gradual shift can dramatically reduce the aching and soreness that some patients experience with regular braces.
The Invisalign system is incredibly popular with all age groups due to its capacity to eliminate the aesthetic concerns created by metal braces. Teens, especially, enjoy the Invisalign system because the aligners can be removed for special occasions. This allows the wearer to enjoy food otherwise prohibited with the use of conventional metal braces, play sports without the fear of mouth injuries, and maintain high levels of self-confidence when the patient needs to look or speak their best. Treatment time for Invisalign can vary significantly, depending on each unique patient situation, but generally runs only 9–18 months, start to finish.
In his spare time, Dr. Slootsky enjoys the outdoors with his wife: running, biking, and hiking. Dr. Slootsky successfully ascended Mt. Rainer with the group “Dentists Climb for a Cause” in an effort to raise money for the charity “Operation Smile.”
