Dr. Michael Arrigo Joins ARCH Orthodontics

(Issued Summer 2019) — Award-winning dental researcher and Orthodontist Dr. Michael Arrigo has joined the clinical team at ARCH Orthodontics which operates nine offices between Boston and Cape Cod. Dr. Arrigo is seeing patients at the Canton and Stoughton offices.

The announcement was made by ARCH’s Dr. Andrew Chase who said, “We are excited to welcome Dr. Arrigo whose interest in the latest techniques and treatments, along with his patient-friendly demeanor, make him a valuable addition to our team.”

Dr. Arrigo said, “I was attracted by ARCH’s excellent reputation and long history of being at the forefront when it comes to introducing the latest tools for patients of all ages, from 6 to 86.”

cum laude graduate of the University of Miami with Honors in the Integrated Math and Science Program, Dr. Arrigo earned his DMD degree from the Tufts University School of Dental Medicine, graduating summa cum laude and fourth in his class. He also earned his Certificate in Orthodontics at Tufts. He was a member of the Omicron Kappa Upsilon National Dental Honor Society and received the Honos Civicus award recognizing his exceptional commitment to civic engagement and leadership. He also earned a Tufts Merit Scholarship and the Dr. James Hanley Basic Science Award given to the dental student with the highest basic science GPA.

In the world of leading-edge Orthodontic industry research, Dr. Arrigo evaluated the accuracy of different 3D printers used in Orthodontic offices and labs and studied stress management strategies for dental students.

ARCH has a reputation for pioneering the latest Orthodontic tools and techniques. Among these are Dental Monitoring, an app that enables patients, using weekly selfies, to reduce the number of office visits while enabling the Orthodontist to better track teeth movement and treatment progress. Another high-tech accelerated treatment tool is AcceleDent® that, with 20 minutes a day of gentle electronic micropulses hastens teeth movement into positions guided by your braces.

This year marks ARCH’s 45th anniversary. ARCH offers a free initial consultation and interest-free financing. Courtesy discounts are offered to anyone serving in the military and their families and veterans, and to municipal employees and their families in towns served by the practice.

Dr. Chase, who warns against using potentially harmful Do-It-Yourself or Direct-To-Customer Orthodontic programs, strongly urges people of any age who wish to safely and professionally improve their smile, bite, and self-confidence to make an appointment at any of ARCH’s convenient offices.
