Expert Training

Dr. Peter Barysenka is an Orthodontist. After completing dental school and becoming a dentist first, only about six graduates of an average of 100 students of every graduating class go through a highly competitive selection process to pursue orthodontic residency.

After graduating from UCLA School of Dentistry, Dr. Barysenka spent an additional three years at UIC in Chicago to study facial growth and development while learning the skills to develop and execute the best treatment outcomes for each individual patient. Our team is committed to constant learning and improving and we attend multiple continuing education courses every year.

Affordable & Flexible Payments

Flexibility is our second name! We want to understand your needs and help fit orthodontic treatment in your life to make it easy and stress-free. After we determine the type and complexity of treatment you need, we will find the best way to maximize your insurance benefits to help cover the cost of orthodontic treatment.

We are offering in-office, no-interest financing for all out-of-pocket costs and will work with you to determine a monthly payment schedule that can fit your budget.

We offer family discounts, discounts for patients who went through growth guidance treatment at an early age with our office and are now ready for full orthodontic treatment, and we do offer discounts to patients who are willing to pay in full for their treatment at the day they start.

Get Comfortable & Efficient Treatment

At Sycamore Orthodontics & Pediatric Dentistry, we use state-of-the-art technology that accelerates treatment time and can make the overall experience more comfortable for our patients.

We utilize Shape-Memory NiTi orthodontic wires for most braces, which is the same technology developed and utilized by NASA. These wires deliver very light and continuous force for a prolonged period of time, guiding teeth in their right position. This technology reduces discomfort, increases intervals between your orthodontic adjustments and can speed up the length of treatment.

In select cases, newly developed self-ligating braces are used to reduce the friction between the bracket and wire in order to achieve results that are difficult, and sometimes impossible, to achieve with traditional braces (like expanding the arch form in teens and adults). Reduced friction, in some cases, can also help make the treatment faster and more efficient.

Modern Orthodontic Technology

Our orthodontist offers esthetic treatment options that can better suit your lifestyle and personality. We can choose between tooth-colored ceramic braces or removable clear aligner therapy, like Invisalign.

For those of you not comfortable taking impressions that orthodontics is known for, we have a 3D intraoral scanner to take your impressions, mess-free! Just let us know and you will never have to experience traditional impression taking in our office.

We offer the MyOrthodontist app for all our patients. After creating and signing into your account, you can view your photos and X-rays from your mobile device, review your previous and upcoming appointments, view financial information, and make payments.

You will also be able to fill out most treatment-related forms and questionnaires on the app. To help guide you through your treatment, our staff will be able to share oral hygiene and other treatment-related videos with you through the MyOrthodontist app.

Establishing a Dental Home

At Sycamore Orthodontics and Pediatric Dentistry, Dr. Sarah, as well as the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry (AAPD), American Dental Association (ADA), and the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) all agree that a “Dental Home” should be established for every child by their first birthday.

Kids who have a Dental Home at younger ages are more likely to receive appropriate preventive and routine oral health care, and are more likely to avoid future dental issues and diseases. They also learn early to love the dentist and are less likely to have fear and phobias with coming to see us. Set up an appointment for your child with Dr. Sarah today!
