What Sets Us Apart

Laster TeamAt Laster Orthodontics, we are passionate about creating beautiful smiles that inspire confidence for patients of all ages. Since 2004, we’ve been serving the community of Raleigh and surrounding areas with unmatched service quality and attention to detail. Our first priority has always been making sure our patients enjoy a personalized and comfortable treatment that leads them to achieve a dazzling smile. There’s nothing more exciting than seeing your brand new smile for the first time, and our team works diligently, so our patients get to have this life-changing experience. We’ve had the unique honor of treating several generations of families because of the trust we’ve built with our patients.

One of the cornerstones of Laster Orthodontics is community outreach. Dr. Laster chose to build his practice here because he loves that Raleigh has the conveniences of a big city with the relationships of a small town. Our office has become a staple in the area because we understand the culture that makes the community so great. Beyond the beauty of the nearby beaches and rolling mountains, our town truly shines because of the fun and family-centered values of our neighbors. We want to invest back into the community that has accepted Laster Orthodontics with open arms by supporting local sports teams, schools, and more.

Tailored Treatment You Deserve

The driving force behind our one-of-a-kind patient experience is our knowledgeable team. Each of our team members is highly trained to help our patients achieve the smile of their dreams. Our office has many pieces of cutting-edge technology, but only our skilled staff can operate them with the technique necessary to optimize your time in treatment. Beyond technical skills, the Laster team thrives because of their passion for providing life-changing treatment that results in gorgeous smiles. We’ll always go the extra mile to give you the tailored treatment you deserve.

Behind every amazing team is a skilled leader, and Dr. Laster has set the tone for our office in terms of quality and culture. While he has been an orthodontic expert for years, he knew early on in his education that he wanted to spend the rest of his life improving his patients’ confidence while perfecting their smiles. Dr. Laster believes the best orthodontists are those who understand there is always more to learn, and he is devoted to being a lifelong student of his field. His patients benefit from his desire to learn and attention to detail as they enjoy smoother treatments and long-lasting results.

An Authority on Orthodontics

Creating beautiful smiles is an art, and you need the right tools to make a masterpiece. Our office is committed to continuously evolving to remain the authority on orthodontics in our community. To achieve this goal, we’ve adopted several pieces of cutting-edge technology that allow us to make the most out of your time in the office. One of our featured services is the Laster Perfect Smile clear aligners. Dr. Laster crafts these budget-friendly and effective aligners in-house so you can benefit from a more customized treatment experience that will perfect your smile in no time. Another great feature of Laster Perfect Smile aligners is that you don’t need to come to our office for as many adjustments, and we can send the next set of aligners directly to your house. We understand you have a busy schedule, and the last thing you need is an extra appointment. For our patients who prefer braces treatment, we use special wires called SureSmile wires made of an alloy carefully shaped for more precise shifting. Beyond braces and clear aligners, we also offer teeth whitening services and TMJ treatment to help you achieve a more beautiful and better functioning smile.

Our dream is for everyone in our community to have access to quality orthodontic care and healthy, long-lasting smiles. While the cost of treatment varies depending on the severity of your oral health issues, our team will go through all the financials with you before treatment so you can better prepare for the costs. As a courtesy, we will be happy to complete and file the primary insurance forms related to our treatment. We work hard to ensure an easy payment plan and act as a liaison between you and your insurance company. However, our professional services are rendered to you, not your insurance company. Please remember that you are directly responsible to us for the obligation of payment for treatment. We also offer payment plans to suit different budgets, including a low down-payment option.
