DR. JAMES CROUSE, THE BRACE PLACE
What’s better than a perfect Invisalign smile? “Nothing!” That’s been the response by many hundreds of patients of Dr. James Crouse after he’s utilized the popular appliance to correct their dental imperfections.
Backed by his two decades of unrivaled experience with this procedure at The Brace Place in Salisbury and Easton, Dr. Crouse is in the top 1% of Invisalign providers. Roughly 70% of his patients, who range in age from 9 into their 70s, have chosen aligners for their treatment —some of whom have found The Brace Place after disappointing results with other doctors.
“It’s important to realize that all treatment with clear aligners is not the same,” Dr. Crouse said. “The aligners are a tool, and your results and experience totally depend on the doctor doing your treatment. You could have the best guitar in the world, but not everyone can play it like a virtuoso. The doctor offering to treat you with Invisalign may have only a few hours of training
in orthodontics. Or, you may see a doctor who says you aren’t a candidate for Invisalign and that you need traditional braces. In the U.S., 70% of the orthodontists only treat 20% of their patients with aligners.”
Patients aren’t simply purchasing aligners from Dr. Crouse in hopes of gaining the smile they’ve always wanted. They are getting three decades of orthodontic expertise from this Salisbury native who has made an art of putting patients at ease, from start to finish. “I understand what your objectives are, what your goals are and what you want to get out of this treatment,” Dr. Crouse said. “Then, I discuss what I would do to achieve those goals and how long it would take,” demonstrating the thorough and thoughtful approach he takes to deliver consistent, high-quality service.
“Orthodontic treatment is a big investment — not only in money, but time and changes to your lifestyle,” Dr. Crouse added. “It can pay benefits that will last a lifetime, boosting self-confidence and self-esteem.” Dr. Crouse and his staff devote themselves to making people happy. Whether you choose Invisalign or decide traditional braces are for you, at The Brace Place, they do everything possible to make the experience of getting a great smile an enjoyable one.
