Dr. Jasleen Raina


A board-certified orthodontist, Dr. Raina is a specialist who caters to quality, not quantity. She recognizes that every patient has unique goals. She customizes her treatment plans according to the needs and desires of her patients, while focusing on the details and
planning for long-term success. Dr. Raina believes successful orthodontic treatment requires teamwork in its true sense; She strives to keep her patients and their families involved with the orthodontic team to attain the best possible outcome.

Dr. Raina cherishes the opportunity to get to know her patients and develop a relationship of trust. She likes to learn from her patients about their non-dental interests and hobbies 🙂 She often says – “They help me keep up with the latest and greatest outside the world of
orthodontics.” She loves her patient’s positive spirits and determination to improve their teeth and enhance their smiles. 

“Some young patients lack self-confidence and have psychosocial concerns due to teeth that are not aligned. Restoring their confidence and having them smile without hiding their teeth is the best feeling ever.” – Dr. Raina
