JU Orthodontics Dean Mark Alarbi talks treatment options on WTLV

Jacksonville University’s School of Orthodontics and its dean, Dr. Mark Alarbi, were highlighted recently during National Orthodontics Awareness Month on WTLV’s “First Coast Living” show, with Alarbi discussing ideal times for screenings, treatment options and what JU’s School of Orthodontics has to offer.

According to the Association for American Orthodontists guidelines, screenings for children could occur as early as age 7, Alarbi told the hosts — just when adult teeth start to come in and the time is ripe for intervention.

He also discussed metal braces, ceramic braces, Invisalign clear appliances and more as treatment options.

The School of Orthodontics was praised on the program for being on the cutting-edge of treatment options and patient care.
