When Dr. Ahmed Mansour of Sunshine Orthodontics tells his patients he understands how they feel, he speaks from personal experience. The only Premier Preferred Invisalign and Teen Invisalign Provider in Dutchess County, Dr. Mansour has first hand knowledge of this revolutionary teeth straightening process. “Invisalign has many advantages, which is why I’m using it on myself,” says Dr. Mansour. “It’s not only more aesthetically pleasing but, unlike conventional braces, it allows patients the ability and freedom to eat whatever they want, making it especially appealing to teenagers.” With no wires, metal or brackets, Invisalign also makes it easier to brush, floss and maintain healthy gums and teeth. Dr. Mansour’s office is the only office in Dutchess County that has the iTero Digital Scanner. “The advantage of this scanner is that it eliminates the need for molds and the gooey mess associated with them,” Dr. Mansour says. Trained both as an orthodontist and a prosthodontist, Dr. Mansour’s knowledge and experience allows him to work on difficult cases that need particular attention to aesthetics. His office also welcomes patients with special needs or challenges. “We work a lot with special needs patients who are turned away from other offices. We have both the experience and the sensitivity they need,” says Dr. Mansour. Sunshine Orthodontics provides many services to make the orthodontic experience easier: Treatment plans are customized and individual; most insurance plans are accepted, in-house, interest-free payment plans are available; evening and Saturday hours can be scheduled and Dr. Mansour speaks English, Spanish and Arabic. An orthodontist for 10 years, Dr. Mansour offers patients excellent treatment in a friendly, warm atmosphere coupled with the latest and most sought after techniques and technology.
