50 Years of Service & Smiles

For half a century, people in Hamden and the surrounding communities have loved their experience with Brace-Asaurus Orthodontics For All Ages.

Expert Training

Dr. Desai is a board-certified, Harvard-educated orthodontist. Every orthodontist starts their journey as a dentist.

Only about 6% of all dental graduates continue their education to become orthodontists. Dr. Desai spent 11 years training to become an orthodontist.

First, he earned his Bachelor of Arts degree in Economics from Villanova University. From there, Dr. Desai enrolled in Harvard Dental School for his dental training.

As an orthodontic student, Dr. Desai dedicated himself for three more years to learn the skills needed to manage tooth movement and to guide facial development and he completed his orthodontic residency at Columbia University in New York City.

On top of that, Dr. Desai is board-certified in orthodontics by the American Board of Orthodontics. This extra training means you're getting expert care at Brace-Asaurus.

Personalized Service

From the moment you contact our office to your final retainer check appointment, our goal at Brace-Asaurus is your complete satisfaction. Dr. Desai will review your photos and X-rays to find the best way to treat your individual needs.

Then you’ll choose the type of treatment you want—modern Damon metal braces or clear aligners (like Invisalign).

Our goal at Brace-Asaurus is not just to give you the smile of your dreams.

We want you to leave our Hamden office after every appointment knowing that your family enjoyed the best possible care.

Comfortable Treatments

The days of painful headgear, clunky bands on every tooth, and overly tight stainless steel wires are a memory of the past. Today's orthodontic treatment at Brace-Asaurus is much more comfortable than it used to be. This is because Dr. Desai uses shape-memory NiTi wires.

With the same technology that NASA uses, NiTi wires exert a continuous force against the teeth to move them in the right direction. This means Dr. Desai doesn’t need to tighten any wires.

You’ll love to know that you’ll spend less time in braces, and Dr. Desai makes sure the time you do spend will be more comfortable. At Brace-Asaurus we take pride in making the process of straightening your teeth as comfortable as possible.
