Experience The ARCH Difference

ARCH began as a family practice, founded by Dr. Robert Chavez and his son Dr. Andrew Chase. The practice grew over several decades, leaving a legacy of quality orthodontic care reaching generations of families throughout the greater Boston region.

With seven office locations, all staffed with orthodontists and a professional team that cares deeply about our patients, we take pride in our decades of experience spreading smiles throughout the community.

When you visit an ARCH orthodontist, we want that visit to be the best part of your day. We take that commitment seriously, so we make it a priority to ensure that our patients are at ease and informed at all phases of care. You’ll find comfortable waiting areas and treatment rooms, a knowledgeable team, and an enthusiastic attitude throughout our practice. We work with our patients and their families to navigate the entire treatment process, from the initial consultation all the way to the final appointment and unveiling of your new smile.

Core Values

Quality orthodontic treatment means more than just putting braces on a patient, although we certainly do that, too! Each person who comes to ARCH Orthodontics in search of a perfect smile receives much more than that. We want to make sure we understand your expectations and goals; using SPIRE (Support, Professionalism, Integrity, Respect, and Excellence) as our guide, we work with you to determine the proper course of treatment.

ARCH is a community built upon collaborations between doctors, staff, and the people we serve. We are committed to providing respectful and supportive environments for our team and patients alike. While excellent care and professionalism are key aspects of our practice, we also believe in nurturing genuine feelings of care, concern, and compassion for the individuals and families we treat.

Our core values are defined using the acronym SPIRE, as we believe your best care happens as we ascend to the highest levels in the following areas:

  • Support Each other, always
  • Professionalism Putting the patient first
  • Integrity Honoring our word
  • Respect Care, concern, and compassion for all whom we treat and work with
  • Excellence In everything we do

Our Mission

Being the orthodontic office of choice in the areas and communities surrounding each of our locations, serving populations who need and/or desire our services and providing a reliable source of specialists to whom local doctors can comfortably refer their patients. We will continue to learn and improve as our field grows in terms of knowledge and technology, and we will treat each and every patient with the highest level of care. Using “SPIRE” as our compass for behaviors, we are dedicated to being the best local orthodontic practice and ensuring each patient has an amazing experience with us.

Orthodontic Experts With Compassion

Orthodontists are specialists by definition. Every doctor at ARCH has completed at least an additional two years of study in the field of Orthodontics, following four required years of dental school. At ARCH, we believe in expanding upon those already high standards of expertise. We are also dedicated to ongoing education. The doctors and caregivers at ARCH keep up to date with advancements in orthodontic treatment. We follow current literature in the field and attend workshops, lectures, and hands-on training sessions. Our orthodontists also have unique training in patient evaluation, including assessment of growth patterns, familial traits, facial geometry, individual emotional development, and personal expectations. In short, we are the experts in orthodontics and even as the world changes, our level of care remains constant.

Life is full of moments about which to smile! At ARCH, we know that a healthy, beautiful smile can contribute to our patients’ confidence and happiness. A great smile helps to create a fantastic impression in both personal and professional situations. Whether we’re working with a young person facing the rigors of adolescence or an adult looking to capitalize on new opportunities, our patients’ lives are sure to be filled with smiles and success as a direct result of our combined efforts and mutual goal achievements.
