Business Brief: Kriger Orthodontics: Creating Smiles



By Natalie Strom

Getting braces today is like a rite of passage- by the time that you are 13 years old you are either in braces, have had some sort of appliance in your mouth or are just about to get braces. Now, with clear braces and Invisalign as an option – adults are upgrading their smiles!

So when choosing an orthodontist, Kriger Orthodontics delivers an awesome experience from a clean, modern and state of the art office, video games for kids, and the  smiling friendly team and of course Dr. Kriger’s credentials deliver an experience that is way and beyond.

The only Board Certified orthodontist on Marco Island, Dr. Maryann Kriger, has been creating beautiful smiles here since 2009. Dr. Kriger and her husband Dr. Gregory Casey, DDS, MD, a maxillofacial and facial plastic surgeon, are here to stay. They have built out a gorgeous office and often work together on complex cases. They both have their own offices in Bonita Springs, where she has been “Bonita’s Best Orthodontist seven years in a row and Dr. Casey has won local recognition as well.”

“Dr. Kriger is a Premier Provider for Invisalign which is the Clear Aligner therapy,” explains Treatment Coordinator, Gail Brockett. “That means that she’s actually in the top five percent in the nation- providing an esthetic and comfortable alternative to braces- great for adults or teens.”

Kriger Orthodontics offers a free comprehensive consultation and easy affordable financing options are also available. “We pride ourselves on stability and being there for our patients,” states Dr. Kriger. “Often there are offices that offer services from transient doctors who do not live in the area, and have no established roots in the practice, or long term follow up with their patients. Caution is necessary, especially in orthodontics where treatment, on the average, takes two years.”

Dr. Kriger recommends that a child

is seen around age six, and states “We often don’t treat at this age, but it is a great age to evaluate if there is a need for early intervention treatment. Early treatment often reduces need for complex treatment in the future or treatments requiring surgical intervention.”

An asset to the community, Dr. Kriger and Dr. Casey also gives back. “They support the island and education,” states Brockett. A firm believer in education, Kriger has supported to the Marco Island Academy, the Charter Middle School and the YMCA, to name a few.

She also gives back to her patients. “We run two big contests per year, adds Brockett. “If you refer a friend or a family member, when they come in for a complimentary consultation you are both entered to win a prize” Each drawing gives the winner a choice of two fantastic prizes. For the contest held in May, the winner had the choice between an iPad 4 or four annual passes to Busch Gardens.

The last drawing was held just weeks ago, and the winner was 11-year old Megan Meyer, daughter of Paul and Mary Meyer, well-known within the community for their support of the Marco Island Parks and Rec. Department. Dr. Kriger waited until Megan’s next visit to surprise her with the announcement. Everyone was in on the secret except Megan, including her mother who was at the office. Megan was completely surprised, slightly blushing from excitement. Talk about a great smile! Her’s was ear to ear as Brockett handed her the brand new iPad 4 that she chose.

The next contest in expiring December 2013 will offer either a $500 Visa gift card or an iPad 4.
