- Why Simply
Simply Orthodontics was recently featured in the Hopkinton Independent as we opened our new Hopkinton office at 77 W Main St! This new location joins our busy offices in Worcester, Webster, Holliston and Milford, and features the latest technology available for patients.
Dr. Sam Alkhoury told the Independent that he “fell in love with the community,” and felt this new office could better serve the area and save patients a lot of travel time. Alkhoury went to orthodontics school in his native Damascus, Syria, before coming to the United States and graduating with degrees from Boston University and NYU. He worked as an associate orthodontist in New Hampshire before opening his first two practices in Holliston and Worcester.
The Independent highlights some of the advantages that patients have at Simply Orthodontics. Dr. Alkhoury is a proponent of the Damon system for braces, which does not require the literal pulling of teeth that is often part of traditional orthodontics. The Damon system uses a slide mechanism to hold the wires instead of elastics. This results in less friction and allows teeth to move more freely. This new technology usually eliminates the need to remove teeth or use palatal expanders to make space. Dr. Alkhoury says this new system doesn’t cost more than traditional orthodontics and can be hugely beneficial to patients.
Dr. Alkhoury also installed a state-of-the-art 3D imaging system in the Hopkinton office that can also greatly benefit patients. He used the system to do an airway analysis on his own daughter after she continued snoring despite having her tonsils and adenoids removed. The imaging system revealed that his daughter needed to expand her jaw. This was accomplished with braces, and the snoring disappeared. “Dr. House,” as he is known from the former hit television series, solved another problem using the latest technology. Simply Orthodontics does not charge patients for 3D scans and will even put copies of images on CDs that patients can take with them.
Dr. Alkhoury told the Hopkinton Independent that he likes to solve problems. Having the latest orthodontic tools at his disposal is a boon for all his patients when he determines the best course of action for each one.
Simply Orthodontics also offers the popular Invisalign® system, Propel, clear braces and Acceledent to speed up orthodontic treatment for those patients on the go, in addition to traditional metal braces.
