Dr. Michael Grossman loves being a dentist. He particularly enjoys getting to know entire families. Dr. Grossman graduated from the University of Massachusetts with his Bachelor of Science degree in biology, then earned his Doctorate of Dental Surgery degree from the State University of New York (SUNY) at Buffalo in 2004.
Dr. Grossman has been on the forefront of Cosmetic Orthodontics for 10 years. He started his orthodontic education by getting certified by the Academy of Straight Wire and Functional Orthodontics 2 year continuum in Comprehensive (Traditional) orthodontics in order to better serve his patient families. Kids wanted to stay with Dr. Grossman for their braces so Dr Grossman catered to that. Dr. Grossman noticed MANY adults wanted straight teeth, were not candidates for Invislalign, and did NOT want TWO years of METAL braces. He went right into 6 Month Smiles training and continued with Powerprox Braces and many other advanced level courses in treating adults for their cosmetic orthodontic needs. It clearly has become his passion and niche in practice. Dr. Mike Grossman hopes to continue to be THE go to guy for any cosmetic dental or orthodontic needs his patients may present with.
In his personal life, Dr. Grossman's greatest joys are his wife, Meagan, and their children, Andrew, Lilah, Noah and Owen. Dr. Grossman's other interests include playing the guitar, skiing, and golfing.
A: The Syracuse Six Month Smiles Technique employs the latest technology and techniques in dentistry to move your teeth quickly and safely with clear adult braces. The key components of the treatment are the use of unique, clear braces and a primary focus of moving the teeth that show when you smile.
A: No! Syracuse Six Month Smiles uses clear braces that are barely visible to gently straighten your teeth.
A: Syracuse Six Month Smiles uses low force to move teeth gently. Many people think that the accelerated braces treatment means simply "tightening" regular braces to get the teeth moving, but that is not true. Syracuse Six Month Smiles utilizes standard orthodontic mechanics, but with an emphasis on the cometic appearance of your teeth rather than the position of your bite.
A: There are no more risks of root damage or other issues than those associated with traditional orthodontics. Since the forces used with Syracuse Six Month Smiles braces are lighter and teeth are seldom extracted, there are actually even fewer risks involved with Syracuse Six Month Smiles.
A: Yes, as with any teeth-straightening treatment a retainer is necessary to maintain the straighter position of your teeth. If you don't want to wear a removable retainer, you can have a bonded retainer placed. There are a variety of options that you can choose from according to your personal preference and situation.
A: Ted from 93Q's Ted and Amy show did not have Syracuse Six Month Smiles treatment, but Dr. Grossman and our fantastic team helped him to achieve his dental goals. His goals were to get back on track with his dental care and to have a "photo ready" smile in just six months. His case required Dr. Grossman and our team to do porcelain crowns on his anterior teeth, and get him back to dental health.
