Beautiful Smiles — Lasting Relationships 2

We know from the musical Annie that “you’re never fully dressed without a smile.”

Offering personalized orthodontic care for children, teens and adults, Kelly Giannetti, D.M.D. and Thais Booms, D.D.S. have been in the “smile” business in the Sacramento region for 17 years.

Their goal is to make sure the customer has a great experience. Giannetti and Booms, Board certified orthodontic specialists, believe in building good relationships with their patients and their families, and they stress how important a smile can be for a person’s well-being.

A recent survey conducted by the American Dental Association reveals that people with straight teeth are perceived as successful, healthy and happy. Booms says that “our teeth are constantly on show, so it’s important for us to be happy and confident with them. A great smile is universally attractive.”

Giannetti says that “the age of seven is the magic age” to first consult with an orthodontist. Giannetti and Booms not only offer free consultation, but no referral from a dentist is necessary. They follow up every six months and monitor the child’s growth, both physically and socially, to determine the best timing for braces, with a goal to complete treatment before the child starts high school. Giannetti and Booms strive to design a treatment that works not only for the patient, but for the family as well.

For adults who didn’t have the opportunity to get their teeth straightened earlier in life, Giannetti says “it’s never too late.” Both doctors recommend Invisalign, a great option for adults that don’t want traditional braces. Invisalign uses a custom-made series of clear plastic aligners to gradually and gently shift teeth into place. There are no metal brackets or wires to tighten.

Using innovative technology in their operation, 3D scans take the place of traditional molds. Giannetti and Booms have their own in-house lab to make appliances, which saves time and money, while maintaining control over quality.

Happy, satisfied customers are the end goal. The philosophy and business approach is to build lasting relationships with their clients and their self-described theme is “beautiful smiles — lasting relationships.”

The business’ website shares many success stories from their clients and Yelp is full of rave reviews from past patients. But the best testimony comes directly from one of their patients, Deb Kubin. She went through treatment with Invisalign and says “I love my smile again.” She recommends Giannetti and Booms for adults and children alike. Kubin says “they obviously take great pride in their work and have a lot of fun while doing it.”

April Melarkey, another satisfied patient and mother of patients, says it was the best investment her family has ever made. Melarkey says straight teeth “boost the kid’s confidence and it’s important to have a good smile.”
