What Sets Us Apart?

You and your smile are two of a kind, so you deserve an orthodontic care plan that‘s as unique as you. Dr. Nicholas Rafaill and the team at Straight Smiles Orthodontics deliver efficient, timely, and affordable care that will change your life.

Changing Lives, One Smile at a Time

Having straight teeth and a beautiful smile will transform your world. You’ll no longer be ashamed of crooked teeth, afraid to smile for fear of what others might think.

At Straight Smiles Orthodontics, we’re proud to offer treatment options to help patients of all ages look and feel their best.

Orthodontic treatment involves trust and partnership: you need to know we have your best interests at heart, and you need to be actively involved in your home care. We can’t create a new smile without you!

As a team, we promise to always:

  • Treat you with compassion and respect
  • Provide ethical treatment recommendations
  • Encourage your participation in all aspects of care
  • Answer your questions thoroughly and directly
  • Educate you about your dental health and how you can keep your smile healthy and beautiful
  • Be available when you need us

Family-Owned & Operated

The Rafaill’s believe the best orthodontic care is achieved in a personalized - non-corporate-treatment approach. With corporations, they treat patients as a number, instead of an extension of the doctor.

Straight Smiles Orthodontics has been caring for families in Shelby Township, Rochester Hills, and Novi for over 50 years, and Dr. Rafaill is continuing his father’s legacy of exceptional orthodontic care to this day.

We’re excited to have Dr. Rafaill’s son, Thomas, joining our practice as a third-generation orthodontist to keep the legacy going. With a family-centered team on your side, you can feel confident that you and your smile are in the best hands.

Honest Team & Exceptional Results

"I can't say enough about Dr. Rafaill and the staff at Straight Smiles Orthodontics. They were very straightforward with me regarding pricing and treatment time and clearly explained what my expectations should be.

However, my actual results are better than I could've imagined. I'd highly recommend them to anyone looking to improve their smile!"

Modern Tech for a Stunning Smile

As a part of our commitment to giving you and your family the latest and greatest orthodontic treatments, Dr. Nicholas Rafaill and our team use state-of-the-art technology, including:

Digital X-Rays

Digital X-rays provide several advanced imaging options designed to save time, provide clearer dental photos, and expose you to less radiation than traditional X-ray technology.

iTero Element

The iTero Element Scanner is a state-of-the-art digital scanning system that eliminates the need for unpleasant traditional alginate impressions—no more messy putty in your mouth!

The iTero Element Scanner lets us digitally capture a detailed 3D model of your teeth and gums.

Carestream CBCT Imaging

Carestream CBCT is a digital, 3D imaging system that helps us provide quick, comfortable, and effective orthodontic imaging for precise diagnosis, treatment planning, and evaluating certain conditions.

We use the data to reconstruct a 3D image of your anatomy: dental (teeth); oral and maxillofacial region (mouth, jaw, and neck); and ears, nose, and throat (ENT).
