“Something to Smile About”
Dr. Ken Danyluk, or Dr. D as his patients call him, is a people person. People are the reason he pursued dentistry and orthodontics in the first place.
“I love helping people, and always wanted to do something with my hands that would have a positive impact on people’s lives,” he explains.
He received specialty training in both dentistry and orthodontics at the University of Manitoba in Winnipeg, Canada. Danyluk practiced as a general dentist for over seven years before pursuing orthodontics full time. With the combination of general dentistry experience and specialty certification in lingual (hidden) braces, he is able to provide his patients with unmatched comprehensive care.
“The many years training with lingual-only specialists around the world and my experience as a cosmetic dentist made this specialization a natural fit,” Danyluk admits.
His practice, Hidden Braces Boutique, opened its doors in Scottsdale in March of this year. Since then, business has been booming. Danyluk has created a warm and open environment full of understanding and thoughtful professionals who provide excellent and individualized care. Danyluk and his team strive to ‘think around’ obstacles and adapt treatment to individual situations. They achieve this by taking their work extremely seriously…
“…but I don’t take myself too seriously,” laughs Danyluk.
Danyluk is often sought out by patients from all over the region for his expertise in lingual braces. Lingual braces are positioned behind the teeth, or lingual side of the teeth, and provide a quick and discreet way to perfect one’s smile. Lingual braces can treat any level of case complexity as well as yield the same results in the same amount of time as traditional braces — minus all the metal. With more than 2,000 successful lingual patient cases, Danyluk’s practice is the largest lingual-only practice in all of North America.
“Hidden Braces Boutique is unique in several ways. We offer lingual treatment options for every orthodontic need in an adult-focused boutique setting. Our specialty is one-on-one, personalized lingual orthodontic treatment with a focus on five-star customer service,” he continues, “Working closely with successful lingual-only practices in Paris, London, Geneva and Tokyo, we are proud to provide lingual treatment expertise and experience that is amongst the highest in North America.”
Danyluk now brings his wealth of knowledge in lingual orthodontic procedures to the Valley, where he admits that there is no better place to work and live.
“The weather, diversity of people from all parts of the world, and the combined vibe of California laid-back and Midwest work ethic makes the Valley second to none.”
At the end of the day, Danyluk and his team are devoted to giving patients something to smile about.
“I want to take good care of people, open up to them and work together. When they understand our attention to detail and level of expertise — the smiles naturally follow!”
