Treatment Options with a Parent’s Busy Schedule In Mind


<< More From Barakat Orthodontics




Dear Dr. Barakat,

I want to straighten my teeth, but between work and family schedules, I just can’t seem to find the time. Are there any convenient options for a busy parent like me?


Dear Concerned Parent,

Absolutely! It’s true that everyone is busier than ever, but our team can still help you get that beautiful smile you’ve always wanted.

New technology in orthodontic treatment has become more efficient and convenient. Whether you are looking to straighten your teeth with traditional braces or Invisalign, there is a perfect solution for every patient at any age.

One exciting tool we use at Barakat Orthodontics is our “Barakat on Trac system.” Our patients take a quick scan of their teeth from the comfort of their own homes using their smartphones. Our team then reviews the scan to get accurate, digital data and closely monitor progress, make treatment recommendations, consult on comfort issues, and move treatment along. This means fewer office visits for you, greater convenience, and more accurate results!

Take advantage of the latest technology in orthodontics. Don’t let your busy schedule get in the way of your beautiful smile!


Dr. Rana Barakat, a board-certified specialist in Orthodontics, has been proudly serving Northern Virginia for more than 20-years! She has built her practice on a personal touch and excellent treatment.

As a parent, she understands wanting the best for your children by giving them beautiful, confident smiles. She makes it a priority to ensure optimal results, but also believes that each patient’s experience during treatment is just as important as the clinical result. As the 2015-16 President of the Virginia Association of Orthodontists, Dr. Barakat’s dedication and expertise reflect why her peers continue to nominate her as a Top Dentist.
