Miss Massachusetts 2015, Meagan Fuller, plus a host of local dignitaries will be on hand for the ribbon-cutting officially opening ARCH Orthodontics’ new state-of-the-art offices at 745 High Street in Westwood Center this Thursday, February 11 at 6 pm.
ARCH has been on High Street for many years and is moving just a few blocks away next to Comella’s and opposite Starbucks.
“The highest tribute is that so many of the town’s ‘ARCH Alumni’ refer their friends and family to us, and that so many area dentists refer their patients to us for Orthodontic work,” said Dr. Andrew Chase who sees local patients along with Dr. Roger Taylor. Dr. Chase is a Westwood resident.
ARCH Orthodontics won First Prize in the ‘Hometown Best 2015 Readers’ Favorites’ poll in its category for the second consecutive year. ARCH has also been an exhibitor and supporter of Westwood Days, and is a Member and Advantage Sponsor at the new Life Time Athletic Center at University Station and offers courtesy discounts to Life Time members. For the past five years, ARCH has been the Official Orthodontist of Miss Massachusetts.
As part of its 42nd year of service, ARCH is offering free consultations for all ages – a $500 value – and no-interest financing. The practice offers a courtesy discount to those currently serving in the military, veterans and members of their immediate families. A similar offer is available to Town of Westwood employees and their immediate families.

The post-holiday season and start of a new year is an ideal time for people of any age who wear braces to step back and consider which foods and food groups to avoid and which ones are ‘braces friendly,’” says Dr. Andrew Chase of ARCH Orthodontics.
To mark February as National Children’s Dental Health Month, Dr. Chase and his team are reminding patients — ages 4 to 84 — to watch what they eat — in order to keep their teeth protected from stain and decay; how they eat — to prevent braces from breaking; and how to care for their teeth — by following an aggressive daily cleaning regimen: ARCH Orthodontics’ Rule of 5′s + flossing.
The American Association of Orthodontists (AAO) of which the Dr. Chase is a long-time member, recommends four types of foods to avoid with braces: Hard foods, sticky foods, foods high in sugar content, and acidic foods. Foods that are considered ‘braces friendly’ include: soft fruits and breads, cooked vegetables, tender meats (off the bones), and most dairy products. “There’s a wide variety from all the food groups so it’s easy to ensure your diet remains healthy during your Orthodontic treatment,” says Dr. Chase, who estimates that ARCH Orthodontics has helped improve close to 25,000 smiles since the practice was founded by his father, Dr. Robert Chavez, 42 years ago.
Dr. Chase says by age 7 is the ideal time for children to have their initial check-up with an Orthodontist: “For some, our free and timely evaluation will lead to significant treatment benefits by starting ‘early’ but for the child’s situation at exactly the right time. For others, the principal immediate benefit is Mom and Dad’s peace of mind.”
“We emphasize to patients to watch what they eat to avoid breaking appliances, ARCH’s Rule of 5′s brushing and flossing. If they’re mindful of some simple guidelines, their treatment will go much smoother and they will be more likely get their braces off for the real sparkle smile. Faster treatment and a great smile are the rewards for following these guidelines,” says Dr. Chase. A new AcceleDent technology along with traditional or ‘invisible’ braces can speed the treatment timeline by up to 50%.
From now through March 31st, any patient who refers a new patient to ARCH is automatically entered into a drawing to win their choice of either ‘A Day of Racing’ at F1 in Braintree, or ‘A Day of Beauty’ at Makeovers Salon + Spa in Easton. To schedule a free consultation (a $500 value) at any of ARCH’s 9 offices, call 1-800-28- SMILE, email email@example.com or visit www.archorthodontics.com. No-interest financing is available. ARCH is the Official Orthodontist of Miss Massachusetts.
Multi-Million Smile Milestone Orthodontists Estimate 25,000 Patients, Tens of and Millions of Improved Smiles Since 1974
January 25th, 2016
You might call it a ‘smilestone.’™ And no practice in Massachusetts can boast this level of success!
Dr. Andrew Chase of ARCH Orthodontics estimates that the practice will pass the 25,000-patient mark this year since its founding in Stoughton by his Dad, Dr. Robert Chavez in 1974. Today the practice has seven offices south of Boston and two on Cape Cod.
Dr. Chase, who joined his father in the practice in 1989, says, “Our primary goal is always to perfect our patients’ smiles which helps to improve their health, comfort, self-image and confidence. Another goal is to make our patients’ visits to our offices the greatest part of their day. We want to be the Orthodontic office of choice in the communities we serve and to be the best Orthodontic group practice. Making the patient our primary focus is how we built the practice, maintain loyalty, and thrive.” Patients range in age from 4 to 84. In keeping with a nationwide trend over the last decade, adults now make up about 30% of Orthodontic patients.
Today’s treatment options include a variety of braces and appliances that are comfortable and almost invisible, making patients less self-conscious. In addition, treatment times may be reduced with new technology, the latest: AcceleDent.
In a patient survey, 97% of ARCH Orthodontics’ patients would recommend the practice to their family and friends. Over 94% said their appointment experience met or exceeded expectations.
ARCH works hard to attract and retain skilled staff. It sponsors regular in-service training sessions such as an American Heart Association-accredited CPR training class. For the fifth year, ARCH is the Official Orthodontist of Miss Massachusetts.
The practice offers courtesy discounts to members of the armed forces and their families, and to municipal workers and their families in the towns where ARCH has offices. ARCH Orthodontics has offices in Bridgewater, Brockton, Canton, Hyde Park, Randolph, Stoughton and Westwood, and offices on Cape Cod in Hyannis and Orleans. Arch offers complimentary initial consultation (a $500 value), and no-interest financing. For more info, call 1-800-28-SMILE, visit www.archorthodontics.com, or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
