During my career I have had the pleasure of working with and learning from some of the most advanced orthodontists in our profession, and I can say unequivocally that Dr. Giangreco is among the best from both a clinical skill and professional integrity perspective. The greater Rochester community is very fortunate to have an orthodontist providing this level of care, customer service, and office experience in their community.
Beautiful Smiles Inside and Out is a book that every person should read before choosing a practitioner for orthodontic treatment. Dr Giangreco’s understanding of how critical appropriate growth and development is (from infancy to adulthood) on one’s overall health puts him at the forefront in the field of orthodontics. The concepts are cutting edge, presented in an organized and succinct way that both clinicians and everyone can easily understand. This book is a must-read.
Dr. Giangreco is a leader in many areas of the orthodontic industry. I am fortunate to have known him over the last ten years as a member of the Ormco Insiders group. The Insiders is an invitation-only group of orthodontists from around the world dedicated to developing the most advanced products and technology in orthodontics. Never satisfied with the status quo, Dr. Giangreco has a contagious drive to improve the quality of treatment his patients receive.
Airway has become a hot topic in orthodontics and other fields of medicine. The understanding of how a properly or improperly functioning airway effects arch shape, jaw growth, behavior, and even overall health is of utmost importance. Being able to properly identify, diagnose, and treat airway issues is something orthodontists are uniquely positioned to do for our patients—if properly educated on this complex topic. This book will be an amazing guide for those that are interested in incorporating airway into their practice. Dr. Giangreco’s experience and expertise will ease the process for those new to the topic.

In my opinion, the greatest compliment I can give another orthodontist is to let them know they could treat my children. Dr. Giangreco fits that bill!
I have known Dr. Giangreco for over ten years via our involvement in a unique study club that provides research and development advice and product testing for one of the world’s leading orthodontic companies. During our twice-yearly meetings we have long days discussing products, treatment ideas, and new technology. Dr. Giangreco is quick to share insightful ideas on adopting technology to enhance patient care. His willingness to share enhances the quality of care I can deliver to my own patients.

Thank you, Dr. Giangreco. You are a role model to all of us as an author, orthodontist, husband, father, and friend.
I first met Dr. Giangreco upon his return to Rochester after completing his dental and orthodontic education. I knew right from the start that he was destined to do great things in our community. Sometimes you just know! Dr. Cortese had long been a preferred referral for my patients that needed or wanted orthodontic care. Dr. Giangreco’s integration into that practice ‘doubled down’ on the strength of that group.
Over the years I have been more and more pleased with the care my patients have received at Get It Straight! Dr. Giangreco is a lifelong learner and strives to be on or above the cutting edge of his chosen field. He has brought significant innovation to the field of orthodontics by integrating airway medicine into his paradigm. In fact, his influence in airways has improved the field of sleep medicine and brought solutions to troubled patients
I have often told my patients that orthodontics will not only improve their appearance (also known as ‘form’) but will enhance their ability to ‘function’ and thereby correct problems that include excessive tooth wear, phonetics, apnea, and mastication (chewing).
His latest endeavor, Beautiful Smiles Inside and Out, is another stunning example of his desire to improve his practice, assist his patients and their parents, and share his passion for improving their lives. It is a great read, not too technical, that will convey his knowledge base and explain the complimentary nature of orthodontics and ‘form and function.’ Congratulations, Terry! You truly are second to none!
As a practicing ENT surgeon for thirty years, I have used Dr. Giangreco’s innovative upper airway 3D CT measurements to help me gain a better appreciation of a child’s airway obstruction. This technology has provided objective clarity in helping parents decide when to proceed to adenotonsillectomy (removal of tonsils and adenoids) for their child. Dr. Giangreco’s ability to blend his experiences with clinical knowledge is beautifully displayed throughout this new book, Beautiful Smiles, Inside

Beautiful Smiles Inside and Out will give you a sneak peek inside the mind of Dr. Terry Giangreco and all that he has to offer for his patients. Orthodontics as a field is always progressing and requires an active pursuit of knowledge to stay abreast of all the new advancements. I had the pleasure of meeting Dr. Giangreco years ago and was immediately impressed with his willingness to push the envelope and improve treatment outcomes for his patients. This book eloquently describes the uniqueness of his practice and how it’s different from your standard orthodontic practice. As a provider treating TMD and sleep full time, I can tell you he has the tools, talents, and knowledge to help with far more than straightening teeth. Dr. Giangreco understands that if you establish proper breathing and function the form will follow. Ideal aesthetic outcomes will be the product of a holistic diagnosis, treatment plan, and execution. My only criticism of Dr. Giangreco is that his practice isn’t close enough to mine giving us more opportunities to collaborate!

Dr. Giangreco has taught me and my team the importance of early detection of airway obstruction and addressing whatever issues arise. I have witnessed positive changes through early intervention in treatment of my patients including my own children. I can attest to how life changing his approach and recommendations can be.
