Dr. Kifah keeps himself abreast with the latest technologies in Orthodontics. He was the pioneer in using the Damon Clear system. Damon brackets offer patients comprehensive Orthodontics with fewer visits and less need for extractions ie. more expansive abilities. As the system is self-ligating there is no need for elastics, hence better oral hygiene.
