Ilya Lipkin, DDS – Orthodontist

"I don't just straighten teeth. I care for your entire chewing system so that your new smile will not only look good but be highly functional, as well. So under my care, you will get more than just a great smile. You will also get a healthy, functional smile that will serve you well for the rest of your life." - Dr. Ilya Lipkin

I come from a long line of doctors, pharmacists and dentists, it is no surprise that I entered the healthcare field, as well. But why an orthodontist among all the possible healthcare professions? Simply put, after getting braces while I was in dental school, I was so appreciative of what orthodontics did for me – the confidence that it gave me – that I decided to specialize in orthodontics.

I follow the Roth/Williams’s orthodontic philosophy, which means that I view orthodontics as more than just a way to straighten teeth. The Roth / Williams philosophy is one of pursuing and achieving measurable results for a child’s entire chewing system. While it’s not part of standard orthodontic techniques, I spent two years learning this philosophy because I believe it’s essential to set treatment goals that consider the teeth, the jaw joints and the muscle surrounding the teeth. My objective is to treat for function and appearance, because every child deserves a lasting, beautiful smile that’s also healthy and functional.
