The Scheinfelds and Orland believe in specialization. It is one of the many things that makes us unique. Every decision we make, new person hired or new technology solution launched is aimed at expanding and deepening our differentiation. We know taking our eye off this goal would be a costly injustice to our patients. We are proud to say that our patients represent long and endearing relationships that span several generations over 30 years.
Singularly, we can’t be all things to everyone, but as a group we come close. And we strive at being all we can every day. If we can be of service to you or answer any of your questions feel free to contact us.

One of the greater realizations from being in practice for a long while, unlike our competitors who offer ‘deals’ to build their patient base, we have the ability to choose cases and families that can really benefit and appreciate our added focus and attention. We are a multi-specialty practice with the ability to treat the majority of your cosmetic, implant and general dentistry needs in-house.
When a dentist talks about your “bite,” she’s referring to your occlusion. Optimal occlusion occurs when opposing teeth come together in their ideal arrangement. When your teeth are misaligned (malocclusion) a whole host of issues can result, including headaches, jaw pain, the wearing away of tooth enamel, and even cracked or loose teeth.
The Right Smile Center helps people achieve beautiful, healthy smiles, i.e., the right smile. Optimal teeth alignment is a crucial component to the right smile.
My prosthodontic training at Emory University School of Dentistry allows me to provide smiles that look great, feel great and function properly. You can’t have a great smile if the teeth, gums, joints and muscles don’t function in harmony with each other.
During your exam, our team will look at how your top and bottom teeth come together when biting. We also assess the wear patterns on your teeth. Equilibration means restoring optimal contact between upper and lower tooth surfaces that prevents the abnormal wear and tear on your teeth, joints, and muscles. Oftentimes, a slight adjustment made to the surface of a tooth makes a huge impact on occlusion. And naturally, we are going to make recommendations that help your smile be a proud part of your expression.
So, if we can be of service please feel free to contact us for a complimentary consultation.
When a patient comes into our Sandy Springs office they are paying for a service. Your orthodontist is going to give you the result while utilizing the tools necessary to get that result. Whether we give you the result with a clear tray from company A or B, it shouldn’t matter, because both companies make trays that exert a force on the tooth to get it to the desired position.
I like the fact that Clear Correct manufactures their aligners right here in the United States, not offshore like Invisalign. Does Invisalign have more fancy bells and whistles for the provider…yes. But those bells and whistles don’t translate into a benefit can pass along to the patient.
What Invisalign and ClearCorrect Have in Common:
Both are virtually invisible, so no one has to know that you’re wearing braces. They are made of a clear plastic.
Both can easily be removed and cleaned.
Both are custom fit to a patient’s teeth.
Both are non-invasive.
Both can be used by patients who are allergic to metal.
Both must be worn nearly all day (they are removed while eating, drinking, brushing, and flossing).
Both adjust the teeth in very small increments over a specified period of time (for example, 2-4 weeks), you will move on to the next phase of treatment and receive a new aligner.
For both, the length of treatment will depend on the current position of your teeth and how far you hope to move them. We will determine the length of treatment.
Here are a few reasons why I prefer ClearCorrect:
1) charges the doctor and ultimately the patient for the final retainer at the end, which could cost the patient on average about $800 additional.
2) charges for extra steps if the patient is not completely happy at the end of treatment.
3) Prices are usually higher per case.
the retainer at the end is free.
if patient is not completely satisfied at the end, additional steps are usually free for full cases.
prices are usually less.
In my opinion, the clear aligners seem thinner and clearer than Invisalign’s. This makes them even less noticeable than Invisalign.
The brand of the plastic aligners has no bearing on how your teeth will move, and how your bite will feel and look at the end of treatment. More important, the success of treatment lies with how well we understand clear aligners and how well we can deliver your desired outcome. As always, start with our full check-up and periodontal exam and make sure your bite, gums and teeth are healthy for orthodontic treatment. Feel free to contact us for an exploratory consultation.
If you are looking for a cosmetic, implant or reconstructive dental work, you should see a prosthodontist, because prosthodontics is the only specialty recognized by the ADA that is involved with esthetic and cosmetic dental restorations and implant restorations. Dr. Novy Scheinfeld is an expert in the dynamics and esthetics of a smile, the preservation of a healthy mouth and the science of tooth replacement. Of the 170 thousand dentists in the country less than two (2%) percent are trained prosthodontists. So, when your dentist refers you to a prosthodontist you should know you are in well trained hands with Dr. Scheinfeld.
Many of those referring specialists think of the prosthodontist as the “quarterback” of a dental treatment plan, the professional in the process with the big picture in mind. She leads a team of experts to develop ideal solutions to your dental needs because ultimately she is responsible for the final restoration.
The combination of all these various disciplines rest comfortably within the purview of her training, expertise and our practice. A comprehensive approach is the best way to get your inner confidence boosted, your personality improved and most important, the right smile. If you have any questions or concerns please feel free to contact us.
Dr. Scheinfeld received her prosthodontics degree from Emory University School of Dentistry in 1988.
Educating patients about the importance of regular dental treatment is an important obligation of our dental practice. But often it’s a very difficult task because many patients have been socialized that their oral health is secondary to their global health. Unfortunately, research has proven just the opposite.
According to the Health Policy Institute of the American Dental Association, the percentage of children who have had a dental visit in the past year has risen between 2000 and 2013. While adults (age 19-64), the percentage has seen a sharp decline.
A little more than 35% of adults feel the need to visit the dentist annually. This is bad for overall oral health of the people in the US.
One survey found that Millennials (which make up much of the adult population today) are most likely to seek out dental treatment using “daily deals” sites based on cost. Another point is the fact that people who live in households that make less than $35,000 are more likely to rely on an emergency room visit for treating their teeth than consumers from higher-income households. While it makes sense logically, it’s not a good trend for any of the parties involved.
We offer affordable care and invite you to come in and see practice and its services.
Our goal is to educate patients about the importance of oral health, its advances and you how the right smile can change your life. But on a day like to day (sunny and 84), like the bumper sticker says, I’d rather be at the beach. So as I much as I love educating, you need to be outside enjoying this beautiful day. Have a great day and check back with us after you’ve experienced the beautiful sunshine. Dr. S.
