Meet Your Orthodontists in Salinas

dr. Caesar headshot

Meet Dr. Darryl Caesar

Orthodontist

Dr. Darryl Caesar is a Canadian native and attended undergraduate at University of Ottawa. Dr. Caesar attended the first dental school in the world, the University of Maryland College of Dentistry. He completed two years of general practice residency (GPR) in NYC and then went on to complete his Orthodontics training at Howard University College of Dentistry.

Orthodontic treatment for Dr. Caesar as a young child seemed like a “rite of passage”, mandated by his parents at that time. However, later in life he realized how important his orthodontic journey and treatment was in establishing his self-esteem and enhancing his confidence. He believes his smile is one of his best assets and allows his personality to shine through.

One of Dr. Caesar’s strengths as an orthodontist is being able to effectively communicate and explain his expertise and knowledge in a digestible manner that makes it easy for all patients to understand. His main goal as your Orthodontist is to create a fun and non-threatening environment where patients will look forward to their appointments, be comfortable, and assured that they’re in good hands throughout the orthodontic treatment journey.

When Dr. Caesar is not at work, he enjoys traveling the world, going to art exhibits and concerts, trying new vegan restaurants and searching for the best boba tea. He does not have any animal pets, but he is a “plant Dad” to 6 plants and enjoys naturing them. Dr Caesar recently relocated from the Central Valley to Oakland and is excited to discover the Bay Area.

Meet Dr. Rael Bernstein

Orthodontist

Dr. Bernstein was born and raised in South Africa and attended the prestigious Wits Dental School, where he finished at the top of his class. He then completed his orthodontic specialty residency at the State University of New York at Buffalo.

After his residency, he accepted a university fellowship position, where he became a clinical assistant professor in the orthodontic department.

He yearned for a climate similar to South Africa and decided to relocate to Southern California, where he met his wife, Debbie, also a dental specialist.

He opened his first orthodontic practice shortly after.

Dr. Bernstein is committed to excellence in orthodontics. He has lectured nationally on self-ligation and early interceptive treatment to other orthodontists and dentists. He strives to provide the latest and greatest to all of his patients in a friendly, upbeat atmosphere.

In his spare time, Dr. Bernstein enjoys racing go-karts, working out, snowboarding in winter, and devoting himself to his wife and two daughters by going to birthday parties, ballet recitals, gymnastics classes, and more.

Salinas Braces

People everywhere know traditional braces as one of the strongest and most efficient orthodontic tools to straighten teeth and fix a smile. Metal or ceramic brackets are attached to the teeth, then connected by wires and tiny rubber bands or elastics.

Our orthodontists at WOW! Smiles™ create gentle pressure using brackets, wires, and bands that work together to slowly straighten your teeth. Salinas braces are an excellent choice for correcting several tooth issues, from simple to complex.

Because they can sometimes work faster at closing gaps and aligning teeth than other options, braces may reduce your total time in braces.

The industry has come a long way as far as orthodontic technology is concerned, and we’re excited to offer the latest and greatest self-ligating braces to our patients at WOW! Smiles.

Our Pitts 21 self-ligating braces are a revolutionary treatment option that provides greater comfort, faster results, and fewer appointments. Sounds great, right? These braces are unique because it uses light, low-friction force to move your teeth into place with greater control and better results.

Plus, traditional braces don’t require some of the more complicated technology or expensive equipment that newer treatments can, making Salinas braces an affordable option for orthodontic Salinas patients on a budget.

invisalign

Salinas Invisalign

Instead of brackets and bands, the Invisalign system uses a series of clear, removable aligners to gradually move the teeth into alignment. Many people already know about this treatment option as an alternative to traditional braces.

Invisalign aligners come in a comfortable plastic that a doctor designs to fit snugly over a patient’s teeth. The patient swaps out these see-through aligner trays every one to two weeks, with the next in the series to keep the aligning teeth.

Patients should wear clear aligners 20-22 hours each day throughout treatment.

The Invisalign system only works if patients follow these recommended guidelines, so patient compliance is critical to success. Neglecting to wear the aligners as directed can halt the results and add time to the total length of orthodontic treatment.
