Cutting Edge Technology

Always at the forefront of orthodontic care, Farina Orthodontic Specialists was one of the first practices to pioneer some of the industry’s latest innovations in Tampa. While many other practices were still using messy, distasteful plaster molds and iffy x-rays, Farina Orthodontic Specialists was introducing the newest cutting-edge technology, from non-invasive digital scanners, radiation-free lasers and 3D imaging to the digital precision of Invisalign® and more, bringing you the most advanced diagnosis and treatment. All this high-tech means a more comfortable experience, fewer surprises and faster, more accurate results for you.

Service with a Smile, to Make You Smile

At Farina Orthodontic Specialists, we do our best to make sure your orthodontist appointments are the ones you love to keep. You’ll enjoy a genuine warmth and care from our team, who welcomes you, gets to know you, strives to serve your needs and alleviate your concerns every way possible. Valuing your time, our team works with you to make your appointments efficient and enjoyable. Innovations such as same-day braces and virtual smile consultations give you even greater convenience and flexibility. Our patients tell us they miss us after their treatments are complete, and often stop in years later to say hello.


Maximizing value and affordability for you is another core part of our smile style. Free initial consultations, a precise diagnosis and accurate treatment plans ensure you get just what you need to create your healthiest and most brilliant smiles without the wasted time or money of backtracking or re-treatment. When it’s time to begin your smile journey with us, our team will work with you to find the best, most affordable option, whether it is one of our many accepted insurance providers or flexible payment plans, to match your needs.
