Why We are Different
At Advanced Orthodontic Care, our number one priority is the health and happiness of our patients, and we strive to give them the quality care they deserve. Whether this is through having the highest sterilization standards possible, or the amount of time spent with each patient, some of the things that work at Advanced Orthodontic Care are because we do things differently.

By using state-of-the-art technology, some things from the past, such as tooth extraction or headgear, are no longer necessary for every patient. Everything, from the brackets on your teeth to the x-ray machines, use the highest technology available. Other advances in technology that we utilize include:
- Faster treatment time – By using different types of braces, treatment can be completed up to 30 percent faster than with traditional braces. Not only is treatment more efficient, but discomfort has been minimized. Our in-house lab also helps to lessen treatment time since we don’t need to send molds or measurements elsewhere. Because of this, our patients are away from work and school much less than they otherwise would be.
- Online access – Our paperless and online account access allows you to schedule appointments and financing without sacrificing valuable time on the phone or by coming into the office.
- Individual treatment – Because each patient’s needs are unique, Dr. Rudman spends time finding out what these needs are. Our younger patients may benefit the most from clear braces or Synergy R braces, while our adult patients may benefit most from Invisalign. In fact, over half of our patients are adults, and many of them are 55 or older.
- Indirect bonding – In most of the orthodontic offices in the United States, brackets are positioned one at a time on the day the braces are placed. In our office we use indirect bonding, which means we place the braces on the molds of the teeth. Each tooth is measured to the exact center of the tooth where the bracket is placed. It takes about 15 minutes to place the braces with this technique compared to 45 to 60 minutes to place the braces directly in the mouth. Also, the position of each of our braces has been measured so the finished result is more accurate.
In addition to state-of-the-art technology used in our practice, we also offer video game system with Sony Play Station 3 to keep our patients entertained while they wait, and each patient receives a backpack, water bottle, electric flosser, and more. Our patients’ younger siblings are also monitored at no charge until it is time for them to begin their own treatment. On top of all of this, we have monthly contests where you can win great prizes.
We understand that you have concerns about financing your own or you children’s orthodontic treatment. Because of this, we will work with you on payment plans, and offer a discount if you pay in full. Braces are an investment, but we want it to be one you are comfortable with.
Your health is important to us, and our practice follows the most advanced guidelines for instrument sterilization and infection control from the CDC and the ADA. We utilize state-of-the-art sterilization equipment that destroys all contaminants. Each instrument is cleaned, sterilized and used on only one patient. Disposable instruments and instruments that cannot be sterilized are discarded after one use. Our staff disinfects all surfaces and changes gloves, masks and caps between patient visits. You can be assured that our practice takes every step possible to assure your health and safety.
Dr. Rudman and the staff at Advanced Orthodontic Care are a highly trained, fun, and respected practice in the Downtown Denver and Stapleton, Colorado area.
