What Sets Us Apart

We are committed to providing the highest quality of clinical care and personalized service in a warm and compassionate atmosphere. Our doctors and staff enjoy getting to know each patient and the family, and love creating relationships that last multiple generations.



If you have a smartphone, you can take advantage of our virtual orthodontic check-ups. Seriously! Dental Monitoring is our state-of-the-art smartphone app, which allows patients to complete their orthodontic check-ups from wherever they are. Paired with our Invisalign® treatments, this is a flexible way to make your orthodontic treatment fit your lifestyle! And best of all it leads to fewer office visits. On average we see our Dental Monitoring patients for in office appointments every 5-6 months. As the only orthodontist in the Columbus area offering Dental Monitoring, that is a significant improvement compared to non Dental Monitoring patients visiting an office every 4-8 weeks.

Invisalign top 1 % provider.

Carmen Orthodontics is recognized as a Top 1% Invisalign® provider in the U.S., the highest ranking given by Invisalign®. As a Top 1% Provider of Invisalign, Carmen Orthodontics treats more Invisalign cases than 99% of orthodontists in the country and this distinction leads Dr. Carmen to treat the most Invisalign cases in central Ohio. We understand which alignment issues will respond to Invisalign, and perform treatment with 3D imaging & AI technology. This results in fewer office visits with faster results. When you choose a Top 1% Diamond Invisalign Provider, you know you are going to someone who has experience & expertise.

Our office is proud to have one of only two orthodontic labs in all of Central Ohio. This guarantees many conveniences to our patients, including custom appliances made on site and designed perfectly for Dr. Carmen’s patients. Having retainers and appliances repaired or replaced in our office allows for a much quicker turnaround time. Dr. Carmen’s patients have their retainers placed on the same day the braces are removed.
