Dr. Zastre has been involved with the Academy of GP Orthodontics since 2005.

In 2011 and 2014 Dr. Neil Zastre Inc. partnered with the Academy to host a 2 year Tip Edge program from our Richmond office.  Eight practicing dentists and 12 patients have just finished working their way toward better function and a more beautiful smile.

Dr. Zastre attended a program hosted by The Academy of GP Orthodontics in Seattle, Washington.

This two year program introduced him to an alternate method of orthodontic treatment - The Differential Straight-Arch® Technique (or the Tip-Edge® System).

It is a comprehensive, fixed orthodontic appliance that facilitates treatment because it is divided into three stages.

The technique has the following advantages:

  • It reduces the need for functional appliances, headgear, or any distalizing mechanics.
  • It reduces the need for orthognathic surgery.
  • Anterior deep bites can be opened without the need for bite planes.
  • Teeth can be easily moved without anchorage strain.
