Albert Family Orthodontics, Where Beautiful Smiles are Always in Style!
When your child’s permanent teeth start coming in and they aren’t lining up as they should, don’t cross your fingers and hope for the best when looking for an orthodontist. Garnering fantastic reviews from his patients, Jeremy Albert, DMD, MS is a specialist in orthodontics and dentofacial orthopedics, and has been in private practice since 2003.
With offices on Tampa Road in Palm Harbor and at Trinity Professional Place (at the corner of Trinity and Duck Slough Boulevards in Trinity), Albert Family Orthodontics is convenient to East Lake, Palm Harbor, Oldsmar, Trinity, New Port Richey and Odessa. If your child needs orthodontic care, or if you’ve reached adulthood and want to give yourself the gift of a beautiful straight smile, then you need to meet Dr. Jeremy Albert and the team at Albert Family Orthodontics.
Accepting patients of all ages and providing the most effective and current orthodontic treatments, Albert Family Orthodontics provides patients and their families with a wonderful experience every visit.
The offices are friendly and inviting with a caring staff that gives personalized attention to patients, focusing on putting them at ease and making sure the environment is positive and happy.
Both locations of Albert Family Orthodontics provide a snack bar, coffee, games and iPads for patients and their families to enjoy. But what patients love most about going to Albert Family Orthodontics is Dr. Albert himself. He is sincerely nice, with an upbeat personality, and he provides exceptional care to patients of all ages.
While it’s never too late to get the smile you want, it’s best to start early with children.
The American Association of Orthodontists recommends an initial orthodontic evaluation at the first sign of orthodontic problems or by age 7. At this early age, Dr. Albert may not recommend orthodontic treatment, but he can inform parents of the most advantageous time to begin treatment if necessary.
Trays With No Impressions, YES! Remember those uncomfortable impression trays with the yucky goo? In most cases, they are no longer necessary. One of the most recent advancements in orthodontic treatments is the use of the iTero intraoral scanner. Dr. Albert uses the iTero wand to scan a patient’s mouth instead of using trays to create impressions, which makes for a far more comfortable experience. “It is possible to go through the whole treatment without needing impressions,” says Dr. Albert. “We can digitally send the scans to the to lab instead of sending impressions through the mail, which makes the process quicker. The scans can also be used to create 3D printed Guardian retainers, which provides four total retainers for the patients.”
Patients love the option to save money by buying extra retainers up front, since most pre-teens and teens end up needing extra retainers due to losing them. Dr. Albert says it ends up costing less to purchase the 4 digital retainers than purchasing one regular replacement retainer later– and you don’t have to come back to the office for extra appointments to get them made!
Getting to Know Dr. Albert
A lifelong local, Dr. Albert graduated from East Lake High School and earned his undergraduate and postgraduate degrees from The University of Florida. He’s been honored with numerous awards and is a member of several dental associations, and not only does he strive to be a positive force within the dental community, he sets a great example for his young patients by volunteering his dental services through mission trips with his church, Cypress Meadows Community Church (CMCC) of Safety Harbor under the direction of Pastor Douglas Poole.
The children and adults that he is able to help on dental mission trips live in remote areas that would not have dental services provided without the help of dentists volunteering their time. Dr. Albert served on mission trips with CMCC to Haiti in 2014 and 2015, taking a break in 2016, and this year, just returned from a mission trip to Nakuru, Kenya where he and others provided dental and humanitarian services to the children at Springs of Hope Orphanage.
Along with a pediatric dentist and another orthodontist, the team set out to treat as many dental issues as possible during their trip in June. Hearing of his upcoming trip, many of Dr. Albert’s patients wanted to help and donated children’s clothing, while many dentists in the area donated toothbrushes and toothpaste. It was truly a community effort that made a difference in another continent.
While it’s important to Dr. Albert to make a difference globally through dental mission trips when he’s able, his patients take priority and he finds ways to make orthodontics fun for them.
When you visit Albert Family Orthodontics’ Facebook page, you’ll find “Braces Off” celebration photos with patients and you’ll find that he holds fun contests for patients.
Since orthodontic treatment is a long-term commitment for preteens and teenagers, the contests keep patients engaged during the process.
Each year, Albert Family Orthodontics’ patients get excited about the Summer of Music and Smiles Summer Concert Series.
This year, patients can enter to win tickets to some awesome concerts including Shawn Mendes’ Illuminate World Tour, as well as old-school favorites Paula Abdul, Boys II Men, and New Kids on the Block – one patient will win four tickets for each concert. Concert tickets aren’t the only things featured in contests. Multiple winners receive iTunes gift cards every month.
There are movie gift card contests, and every year Albert Family Orthodontics invites all patients to their yearly AstroSkate party.
Dr. Albert is dedicated to the community where serves and lives, and provides opportunities for his patient base to improve the lives of others through charities such as Toys for Tots. He also provides an annual babysitting certification program through Red Cross free of charge for patients.
Completion of the program includes certification in CPR and first aide, and this knowledge can help patients create their own positive impact in the community. Dr. Albert gets his young patients to think communally as well and offers them a chance to help their schools earn money by encouraging friends and family to vote for their school in his yearly “Making a Change & Helping Local Schools” campaign. The top three voted schools are put in a drawing for a first place $1,000 donation, and a second and third place donation of $250.
New Patients: What to Expect
New patient evaluations are always FREE of charge. The free 45-minute new patient evaluation visit is important and includes a thorough examination (including complimentary panoramic x-rays) and a discussion of potential treatment options.
