This was the view from our office last night! We overlook the CP commercial train tracks and the train goes by our office 20-30 times per day for our patients to enjoy. We love trains and we embrace a train theme for our office, with train art and decor. It’s fitting that we place “train tracks” on our patients teeth!

Victoria Park and Lawrence is the highest point of the city and we are on the top floor with tall windows boasting a panoramic view of the north-west of Toronto and what we believe is the best view of the city! We welcome you anytime to see our beautifully finished and designed office and to look out the window to admire the train, the stunning city of Toronto and even the gorgeous sunrise or sunset!

Thank you so much to Carmelin and Patricia who took the time to write these kind reviews of our orthodontic practice which bring joy to our hearts:

Carmelin:

I’m very proud to have chosen Dr. Noble as my son’s orthodontist, the best of the best. He and his staff are professional, patient, caring, and meticulous with their work. The atmosphere of the office is warm and welcoming. It is amazing to see the hard work the team had put in with my son. He was well known for keeping up the record for breaking the brackets. But Dr. Noble was very patient and mended it each time with care and smile. His consistent encouragement had helped my son to withstand difficult stages of his orthodontic treatment. The sense of confidence my son feels when he smiles – priceless. Thank you Dr. Noble for your wonderful service. I will simply recommend Dr. Noble as your orthodontist.

Patricia:

Changes can happen anytime and I am sure glad I chose Dr. Noble and his team to travel with me. My smile was kept intact from start to finish. Great work and recommendations will be forthcoming for sure. The entire team work well with one another, seamlessly. Always knowledgable and pleasant. No negativity which is a blessing in today’s environment. A huge thank you to Dr. Noble and team for fulfilling my expectations. Peggy

As extensive and premier providers of inside, lingual or hidden braces using the Harmony system (https://www.myharmonysmile.com/), Harmony and American Orthodontics flew down one of the top educators in the world on lingual orthodontics, Paula Hewitt, who came from New Mexico, USA.

Paula was at our practice all day Wednesday to provide our team with an amazing continuing education experience on the clinical use of inside/ hidden braces placed on two patients top and bottom teeth. These are invisible bonded to the inside of your teeth, a truly invisible way to have your teeth straight. It is part of our mission to provide the variety of treatment options to our patients including lingual orthodontic treatment and we are fully equipped with the skills to provide this for our patients.

A huge thanks to Paula for spending the day with us and for sharing her knowledge and wisdom and to Jordan McGrann, the Harmony system and American orthodontics for sponsoring this amazing educational opportunity for our team.

Adult orthodontic treatment contributes to significant improvements in both professional and personal lives, say respondents to a new study conducted among individuals who, as adults, had orthodontic treatment provided by orthodontists.
Seventy-five percent of adults surveyed reported improvements in career or personal relationships, which they attributed to their improved post-orthodontic treatment smile.  Citing newfound self-confidence, 92 percent of survey respondents
say they would recommend orthodontic treatment to other adults. The survey, which was conducted on behalf of the American Association of Orthodontists (AAO) for National Orthodontic Health Month in October, queried respondents on their pre-treatment concerns:  “What will others think?”  “How will I look?” “Am I too old?” Seventy-one percent had such concerns prior to treatment, but an overwhelming majority said the concerns did not continue once treatment actually began.  Respondents reported positive outcomes from treatment: “I was much more confident and self- assured once I could smile openly. Life is very stressful (on a subconscious level) when you’re always aware th
at you cannot open your mouth to smile without fear of judgment.” “With an attractive smile you can face your career and personal relationships with confidence.” “A more brilliant smile and the straightest teeth … gave me confidence to do anything.”
Younger adults report the most favorable results. Eighty-seven percent of those aged 18-34 reported increased success with personal relationships after treatment.  “I found someone who cared about me,”commented one respondent.
“This survey validates that a healthy, beautiful smile can be a critical factor when it comes to personal and professional success,” says Gayle Glenn, president of the AAO. “ Adults are seeking treatment in record numbers and we encourage anyone, at any age, to consult an orthodontist to learn if they could benefit from treatment.  It’s never too late to move healthy teeth.” The number of adult patients increased 14 percent from 2010 to 2012, to a record high of 1,225,850 patients ages 18 and older. AAO members were treating a total of 5,876,000 patients in 2012, an increase of 20 percent as compared to 2010. More men are opting for orthodontic treatment, according to a recent AAO study.
As of 2012, 44 percent of adult patients were male, a 29 percent increase as compared to 2010 survey results. Patients of all ages seek out orthodontists for their expertise in straightening teeth and aligning the bite. Orthodontists make use of the full range of treatment types avail able. Based on their education and experience, orthodontists can devise effective treatment plans that employ the full range of treatment types, from high-tech to tried and true, based on the needs of each individual patient. After dental school, orthodontists receive an additional 2-3 years of specialized education at an accredited orthodontic residency program. Only those who have successfully completed this formal education may call themselves “orthodontists,” and only orthodontists are eligible for AAO membership.

Dr. Noble spent all day Tuesday giving lectures and teaching the 24 orthodontic residents at the University of Seton Hill graduate orthodontic program in Pennsylvania orthodontic biomechanics. Here he is with program director and orthodontic legend Dr. Don Rinchuse. Here is a picture of Dr. Rinchuse sporting colours to support the Pittsburgh Pirates who won their first playoff last night. The Leafs won their season opener against the Habs so Dr. Noble was very happy (note he’s wearing blue).
