Dr. Richard Schechtman has been practicing Orthodontics for Children and Adults in Jefferson Valley since 1989. He is the longest established Board Certified Orthodontist in the Yorktown area. Dr. Schechtman takes pride in utilizing advanced technologies to optimize his patient's Orthodontic experience and results. Two such technologies are Invisalign and Suresmile.
Dr. Schechtman is a certified Premier Preferred Invisalign Provider. Invisalign is an almost invisible orthodontic treatment done without braces! Utilizing clear removable slip on aligners, almost any orthodontic problem can be corrected.
Dr. Schechtman is also the first and only provider of Suresmile Orthodontic Care in Westchester and Putnam counties. . Suresmile is a digital technology that allows the doctor to simulate exactly how your treatment with braces will finish before it begins and then reduce your time in treatment by 30%!
His desire to give back to his community has resulted in Dr. Schechtman becoming Westchester's first Smiles Change Lives Orthodontist. SCL orthodontists provide free life changing orthodontic care to children whose families couldn't otherwise afford it.
Dr. Schechtman is an avid piano player who plays in local bands and at charitable fund raising events, like Community Cares. He resides in Goldens Bridge with his two daughters and his dog, Jazzy.
