Welcome to the office of Dr. Karen Calef !

Thank you for visiting the website of Dr. Karen Calef, where we are changing the world one smile at a time! Dr. Calef is proud to offer the highest quality, affordable orthodontic treatment for children, teens and adults in a uniquely comfortable setting. Our office is conveniently located in Mansfield, Connecticut.

We pride ourselves in making each visit to our office a pleasant and positive experience. We provide efficient scheduling, as well as a knowledgeable and dedicated team that can answer all your questions and concerns.  Private patient rooms encourage patient comfort.   Staff and doctor are experienced, sensitive and responsive to those with specific needs such as autism, sensory issues, ADD, ADHD, or dental fears.  

Advanced Braces and Technology

In addition to traditional metal braces, we offer clear ceramic braces, lingual braces, and  ClearCorrect™ aligners. Lingual braces are brackets worn on the inner surface of the teeth and  ClearCorrect aligners are custom-made, removable and virtually invisible. Either one of these means you can improve your smile without anyone knowing. We utilize the latest technology, such as digital imaging and X-rays, to ensure you receive the best care.

Early Treatment

Orthodontic treatment is available to patients of all ages. In accordance with the American Association of Orthodontists, we recommend that children have their first orthodontic evaluation by the age of 7. With early evaluation and diagnosis, children can achieve optimal orthodontic results. Early treatment provides a range of benefits and often means that a patient can avoid surgery or other serious complications. There is, of course, no age limit for orthodontic treatment as both children and adults benefit from orthodontics. As such, our office accommodates orthodontic patients of all ages.

At the office of Dr. Calef, we are dedicated to helping you achieve the healthy, beautiful smile you deserve!
