Dr. Baum has been setting the standard in outstanding orthodontic care in our area since 2004, creating thousands of healthy smiles for both children and adults. Dr. Baum maintains memberships in prestigious professional organizations such as the American Dental Association and the American Association of Orthodontists. He has lectured on behalf of Invisalign and has been named “Top Orthodontist” by Connecticut Magazine every year since 2010!

Dr. Blanck

Dr. Blanck believes in providing quality, compassionate, patient-centered care by treating my patients as he would his own family. He builds relationships with his patients by working with them to create beautiful, functional smiles.

Digital X-Ray

Digital X-Ray

Digital x-rays or radiographs are precise images taken of the inside of your mouth captured using radiation. They allow us to analyze inside and between your teeth, the tooth root and the jaw bone beneath the gums.



The iTero scanner uses optical technology to create 3D scans of the teeth and the gums. The scanner itself is a small, handheld wand that is moved by the orthodontist to guide the scanning process.
