The Raphael Center: Integrated Orthodontics in New Jersey

What KIND of orthodontics are you looking for?

If this question takes you by surprise, you're not alone. There are different ways of looking at orthodontic problems and different ways of treatment.

If we asked you to review this website, it is because we feel it is important for you to understand what those different ways are. If you've already heard about us, you can get the details about our approach here, too.

Meet Dr. Raphael, Founder


Most people equate orthodontics with braces.
But wait, there's more.

At the Raphael Center for Integrative Orthodontics in Clifton, NJ, we offer several different methods for getting a great smile.

Some ways deal with health. The other ways deal with appearance. The home run is when you can get both.

Let us help you determine what is right for you or your child.

Health-Oriented vs. Esthetics-Oriented Orthodontics

Start with the videos below and then browse the site. We made it short and easy to read, with more detail only if you want it. There are different approaches depending on the age of the patient, so look for the icon [[child teen adult]] to see what's appropriate. Finally, go to the "Choosing" page where we help you put it all together.
