Our Purpose

Orthodontist in Manlius, NY - Carolyn B. Dragon, DMD, MSD

Our purpose is to deliver high-quality orthodontic treatment in a caring manner, in a family-oriented atmosphere, with a special emphasis on personalized attention by Dr. Dragon.  We maintain a low volume practice which enables our patients to receive the most personalized care available. 

Dr. Dragon personally performs all active orthodontic procedures on every patient. This is unique among today's more commonly seen high volume "factory" style practices.  It is our commitment to you that you get professional treatment upon each visit to our offices in Manlius and Syracuse 

High Standards

A standard of excellence in personalized orthodontic care enables us to provide high-quality orthodontic services our patients deserve.  We utilize the most advanced diagnostic imaging technology available to diagnose and treatment plan your specific orthodontic needs, achieving your optimal dental health.  Should an orthodontic emergency occur, we make every effort to see and care for you as soon as possible.

Education & Prevention

As a practice, we are true believers that preventative care and education are the keys to optimal dental health.  We strive to provide our patients with an understanding of maintenance and care of their orthodontic appliances.  One of the most important cooperative issue during orthodontic treatment is a patient's oral hygiene.  Our staff demonstrates proper appliance care and encourage excellent oral hygiene at each visit in order to achieve the best possible result and lasting smile.  We also stress routine cleanings, flossing, sealants, and fluoride are all helpful in preventing dental disease.  We encourage you to visit your regular dentist throughout your orthodontic treatment. Not only are we focused on the beauty of your smile, we’re also concerned about your health.  A review of your medical history helps us stay informed of your overall health, any new medications, and any illnesses that may impact your dental health.

Uncompromising Safety

Infection control is a priority in our office and is very important to us.  To protect our patients and ourselves, we maintain strict sterilization and cross contamination processes using standards mandated by the American Dental Association (ADA), the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), and the Center for Disease Control (CDC).

Training & Expertise

As your dental health professionals, we want you to be confident knowing that we are a team of highly trained and skilled clinicians.  We pride ourselves in providing the care you need to keep your smile healthy.  To give you the best possible service and results, we are committed to continual education and learning.  We attend dental lectures, meetings, and dental conventions to stay informed of new techniques, the latest products.  We utilize the newest equipment in providing modern, state-of-the-art orthodontic care.  Also, being members of various professional dental associations helps us to stay abreast of the changes and recommendations for our profession.

A Positive Experience

Building a foundation of trust by treating our patients as special individuals, is vital to our success.  We understand how anxious some patients may feel about beginning their orthodontic treatment, and how we can make a difference in providing a relaxing and positive experience.  Our entire team is dedicated to providing you with excellent, personalized care and service to make your visits as comfortable and pleasant as possible.

We thank you for allowing us to treat your orthodontic needs and look forward to Brightening Your Life.
