HOUSTON, March 27, 2014 /CNW/ - OrthoAccel® Technologies, Inc. (OrthoAccel) announced today that orthodontic specialist, Dr. Sonia Palleck, has been named to its Key Opinion Leadership Group of world-class clinicians who present scientific and clinical evidence supporting OrthoAccel's groundbreaking medical device, AcceleDent®. Now available in over 1,000 orthodontic locations in North America, AcceleDent is the only FDA-cleared, Class II medical device that speeds up orthodontic treatment by as much as 50 percent.
Accelerating orthodontic treatment is a priority for Palleck, who differentiates her practice by striving to accomplish all orthodontic cases in 12 months or less. One of the world's premier providers of Insignia™, an Ormco-manufactured customized orthodontic appliance system, Palleck implemented the Insignia system into her practice as standard of care and integrates AcceleDent into nearly all of her patients' treatment plans to maximize clinical efficiency.
"I'm dedicated to providing patients the latest orthodontic techniques and technology. AcceleDent is a part of that strategy because I've seen it speed up treatment by as much as 30 to 40 percent, in addition to the reduction in time I've seen with Insignia alone, while also reducing patients' discomfort," said Palleck who owns Palleck Orthodontics in Woodstock and London, Ontario. "Treating people has always been a privilege that I treasure and with AcceleDent it's even more exciting because I'm giving patients the smile they've always wanted in half the time."
A member of the American Association of Orthodontists and the Canadian Association of Orthodontists, Palleck has been in private practice for over 15 years and is a graduate clinical instructor of orthodontics at the University of Western Ontario.
