5 Reasons to Choose Align Ortho in Kelowna

Oct 11 / 2017

As a Kelowna resident, you’re researching the best orthodontic provider for your family.

We understand the need to double and triple check a company before giving them your money. We do the same thing!

We wanted to make it easier for you, so this blog post breaks down the reasons why you should pick Align Ortho in Kelowna for your child’s orthodontic needs (and maybe yours too down the road).

1. We’ve been doing it for a really long time


We’ve been Aligning teeth in the Okanagan for more than 35 years. Dr. Don Scramstad founded Align in Kelowna in 1981 and spent the last three decades working with Kelowna residents to create their perfect smile.

His son, James, wanted to continue the family tradition and went to the University of Alberta to obtain his Bachelor of Science and Doctor of Dental Surgery degrees.

In 1996, he started working full-time at Align and has since taken the practice over from his dad.

"I'm here to give my patients the best experience of their lives, in a warm, inviting environment." - Dr. Scramstad.

Dr. Scramstad is an active member of the Canadian Dental Association, BC College of Dental Surgeons, and Kelowna & District Dental Society.

2. Leading Providers of Invisalign


If you haven’t heard, Invisalign is a way to straighten your teeth without the use of metal braces. It consists of a series of clear, custom-fabricated aligners that are used to gradually and sequentially move teeth.

Invisalign is available for teenagers and adults.

Align Ortho has been providing Invisalign since 2007 and was recognized in 2010 as an Invisalign Premiere Provider. This means we were recognized as being among the top of the Invisalign providers in North America.

3. Our central location


Kelowna is a busy place and can seem spread out for many people. Luckily for us, we have a beautiful office on Ellis Street, which is minutes away from the hustle bustle of Bernard Ave. Our office is located on the third floor of our building and has elevator access right to our main door.

If parking is a worry for you (like it is for most of Kelowna residents), there is free parking until 9 a.m. downtown. If your appointment is later, the library Parkade is right across the street.  Don’t forget to download the PayByPhone App onto your smartphone to make parking very simple.

We are open Tuesday through Thursday from 7:15-5:00 p.m.

4. Our free consultation

Yes, you heard that right. An orthodontic provider using the word “free”.  At Align Ortho, we want to make sure you receive the right treatment for your needs. During your initial visit, we will determine the best treatment for you, we will outline the treatment plan, your estimated length of care and will provide you with a written financial quote and payment plan.

What’s not to love? You are spending zero dollars and everything is laid out on the table for you to read, review and question. Just what you wanted when you clicked on this article!

5. Our discounts

Another word you usually don’t hear an orthodontic provider use…

We offer payment plans for our clients because we don’t want money stopping you from getting the perfect smile you’ve been dreaming of.

To get Align Ortho’s exclusive offers, you have to do either of two things.

The first way to get an 8% discount is to pay for your treatment in full. Since many insurance companies don’t pay for treatment in full, this discount is primarily for people paying for treatment themselves.

The second option to get a discount is for two people in your family to receive orthodontic treatment.

Align Ortho offers a discount to the second member of the family (or more) who is undergoing treatment. This discount isn’t associated with a certain number percentage, it’s based on the family member and the cost of their treatment.
