Over the years we have been fortunate to treat friends and families of our patients.
In fact, we have treated multiple generations of families, including children, parents and grandparents!
Even though Dr. Barakat has been honored to have been selected to treat dentists, their spouses, children, hygienists and assistants during her career, her most important patient is you. [invisalign logo]
At Barakat Orthodontics, our highest compliment is your referral. On behalf of the entire Barakat Orthodontics Team, we would like to extend a big Thanks to our family of patients who have supported us over the years. We strive to continue to provide the highest level of orthodontic care.

"Honestly I'm not the biggest fan of people poking around in my mouth, but Dr. Barakat always made visits quick, easy, and as painless as possible! I had a wonderful experience with Invisalign and the orthodontist as a whole. If you are looking for a friendly environment with delightful staff while perfecting your smile, I'd definitely recommend Barakat Orthodontics! :)"

"I came in for an appointment for my son and ended up being the one that got Invisalign! At 37 years old I was not expecting to do this but had always thought about it. Dr. Barakat sat down with me and explained things and it didn't seem too bad so I went on her advice to go ahead and start treatment. What a great decision that was. You're never too old to have a nice smile and build your confidence.
The entire process was very smooth. I have no complaints what so ever. The staff was always so friendly and professional and always made me feel welcomed and important. I couldn't have asked for a nicer group of women to work with. Dr. Barakat is an awesome lady! She is so cool and down to Earth yet highly skilled in her craft. She makes it seem so easy and I never got nervous and was never in any kind of pain.
Invisalign is great but you have to be very disciplined! If you want great results you have to stick to the process. You have to wear them all the time and you have to brush a lot. You have to schedule your coffee and meals with Invisalign and you have to brush your teeth at work often. Its not for every one but it does work well because I had 37 years of crowding. I also had front braces for a few months during the process and that gave me more freedom to eat and drink when I wanted but you are worried there is food stuck in them all the time. You really can't go wrong with either and neither type hurt.
In a nutshell I would highly recommend Dr. Barakat and her team. They are awesome! You won't be disappointed."

"It all started when my teeth started to shift. I unfortunately neglected wearing my retainer. It was uncomfortable, and challenging when cleaning my teeth, since they were crowding each other. So the best possible solution was to get braces!"

"Where do I begin?? Dr. Barakat is awesome. Both of my sons had braces and my husband had Invisalign. Now it's my turn for Invisalign! Dr. Barakat and her staff are always upbeat and friendly and very knowledgeable in their field. They answer all questions and make you feel like you're special. That's important, especially when my sons were younger and had braces. They never complained about the visits, nor the work that needed to be done. Kudos to Dr. Barakat and her staff! Keep up the good work."

"After a bad experience with my eldest son,'s orthodontist, I was referred to Dr Barakat through a friend. This has been a wonderful experience with very friendly, non-judgmental staff who have been able to provide convenient appointment times and reminder calls. My son's teeth are becoming aligned very quickly and with little to no pain! I would highly recommend Dr Barakat to anyone looking for a great orthodontist!"

"We have been extremely happy with our experience at Barakat Orthodontics. At our first visit, we met with staff members who explained the whole process to us, and Dr. Barakat took a detailed look at our daughter Marissa's teeth and jaw. Her recommendations to us were quite specific and knowledgeable, which differentiated Dr. Barakat as other orthodontists we saw had more generic recommendations. Throughout our months of treatment, starting with an expander and some spacers, followed by first phase of braces for a year, all the members of the staff have been consistently wonderful. Everyone is friendly and helpful and knowledgeable, and Marissa never dreads a visit to the orthodontist. We have recommended Barakat Orthodontics to many friends and neighbors and their experiences have been positive as well. Best of all, our daughter's smile has been improved with minimal discomfort and an overall excellent experience. We look forward to working with the team at Barakat Orthodontics for Marissa's second phase and her brother's braces if needed."

"We moved to Sterling in 2006. My daughter was in the middle of her treatment with braces. We were referred to Dr. Barakat by our dentist. Our experience was fantastic, so when it came to needing braces for our son, we knew we be back with Dr. Barakat. The staff are so friendly and they work hard to accommodate our busy schedule. I can't say enough good things about Dr. Barakat, her skill as an orthodontist, and wonderful practice that she has created."

"Barakat Orthodontics should have a higher rating than just 10 stars! We are repeat patients...plenty of crooked teeth to straighten...and straighten them they have. Best staff, best care, best of everything. My children's teeth are so beautiful...and it's all because of the excellent treatment they have received at Barakat Ortho...we love them!"

"I came to Dr. Barakat as a 27 yr old bracesophobic with an over zealous baby tooth holding on for dear life. My permanent tooth was backwards and behind the baby tooth. After much thought and not a few hysterics (braces will ruin my life, gasp!), I decided on clear braces. 16 months later my teeth were the most perfect they've ever been! Dr. Barakat and her entire staff were always kind, humorous and patient. I owe them a huge debit of gratitude for helping me make the right decision and constantly see the light at the end of the tunnel. As well as for putting the rogue baby tooth in a box, apparently the tooth fairy still delivers...and follows inflation. To be continued..."

"An awesome Ortho office. I wouldn't take my kids to any other office. The team is wonderful with young kids; both my girls were 7 when they started ortho. We are now in phase 2 with my 11 year old. The kids love the Barakat bucks, and they are never nervous for their appointments. Bring your whole family; you can't go wrong."

The kids enjoy(maybe enjoy is too strong a word-don't mind:-)) coming to appointments at all-the possibility of Barakat bucks and x-box while waiting keeps them happy and entertained!"

You have made this so easy for Riyaad. Dr. Barakat's patience and care is outstanding. Everything was explained (even the details by Linda). I personally enjoy this care.and attention for Riyaad.

"When I had braces from 2002-2005, I always looked forward to my appointments with Dr. Barakat. I could really tell how enthusiastic she was about her job. One of the things that really stood out for me was Dr. Barakat's sunny disposition at every appointment. Just being around her put me in a great mood! From the variety of colors I could pick (very important to a 13 year old!), to the gentle hands of Dr. Barakat and the assistants, I always received top notch care. There was never a time when I wasn't greeted with a huge smile and genuine interest in how I was doing. Not only did I always feel welcome in the office, but Dr. Barakat and the assistants always kept my parents and I in the loop every step of the way. After getting my braces off, I looked and felt like a new person! The transformation from start to finish was astounding. I absolutely love my smile and often get complimented on how great my smile is 8 years after ending treatment. I always recommend Dr. Barakat to peers who are seeking a dazzling smile!"
