We have one important mission at our Centre for Invisible Orthodontics: develop a personal relationship with each patient, and provide the most comfortable path to a better life through quality dental health and a pleasing smile from our Miami, FL location. Each patient is greeted warmly, seen quickly, and treated with the latest in dental and orthodontic technologies, including the Invisalign and Invisalign Teen system.
Meet Dr. Stephen Grussmark
Dr. Grussmark has treated thousands of patients since he entered private practice more than 30 years ago. He is a true pioneer in the use of Invisalign, which he has studied and worked with since the invisible braces product was introduced in 1999.
Dr. Grussmark is a Miami native who attended the University of Florida for his undergraduate degree and went on to dental school at University of Maryland. While there, Dr. Grussmark’s professor selected him to treat the first and only full orthodontic case in the university under the professor’s supervision. Dr. Grussmark’s interest and passion for orthodontics subsequently followed.
Serving as a captain in the Air Force and stationed in the Philippine Islands, Dr. Grussmark worked closely with the local orthodontists when children of servicemen required orthodontic intervention. After the Air Force, Dr. Grussmark returned to school to complete his orthodontic residency at Fairleigh Dickinson University in New Jersey, earning his Master of Science in Dentistry degree.
His professional affiliations include the American Association of Orthodontists, South Florida Academy of Orthodontists (past president), and the Florida Cleft Palate Association (past president), among others. In addition to his private orthodontic practice, Dr. Grussmark has taught at the University of Florida as assistant professor of clinical orthodontics for nine years.
