Rishi A. Kothari, DDS, doesn’t just live by the Golden Rule, he aligns his orthodontics practice by the Golden Rule—“treat patients as you would want to be treated.” That means being client-focused, friendly, genuine, honest, and approaching all of his patients with a smile. As Dr. Kothari says, “You’re only a stranger once; we’re on a first name basis after that.”
Much like Dr. Kothari, a compassionate and insightful second-generation orthodontist, 914 Orthodontics is cutting edge and high tech, yet comfortable, and unpretentious. The state-of-the-art practice is completely digital and paperless, using advanced oral scanning and 3D printing, allowing patients to spend less time in the dental office and more time enjoying their new smiles. In addition to high-level expert care, patients can expect high value that Dr. Kothari describes as “five-star service at a three-star affordable price.” His orthodontics specialty training includes Invisalign clear aligners and TMJ disorders.

· How did you start as a small business?
Started the business from scratch out of my savings. I did not work with a bank for financing, but lived like a student and saved for 3 years while working as an associate at other offices until I could afford to open my own. As the practice grew, I slowly transitioned away from my other jobs (3) to focus on my practice.
