Your Scottsdale Orthodontist

Dr. Barakat

Dr. Monika Barakat was born and raised in the south of Poland prior to moving to New Jersey at the age of 15. She received her Bachelor’s of Art in Biology in 1999 from Kean University and her DMD degree from Rutgers School of Dental Medicine, formerly New Jersey Dental School, in 2003. During her time in dental school, she discovered a passion for orthodontics and thus pursued further post-graduate training as part of a dual degree program at the Rutgers School of Dental Medicine. In addition to three years of specialty training in the orthodontic department, for which she was awarded a Specialty Certificate in Orthodontics, she also pursued and earned a Master of Science in Dentistry Degree in 2006.

Over the course of the next 10 years, Dr. Barakat welcomed two beautiful girls into the world, moved from New Jersey to Ohio and then Arizona as her husband began and then finished his specialty training. All the while, she continued to dedicate herself to practice exclusively orthodontics in many diverse settings, both within large groups, small private practices, and as an independent consultant. Nonetheless, she always dreamt of opening up her own office, with the goal of demanding excellence of herself and those around her for the best possible patient outcomes. Soon after realizing that her family was thriving in Arizona and had found a home, she began to pursue that dream: after nearly two years of planning, Opus 1 Orthodontic Studio opened its doors in 2016.

Our Services

Metal Braces
Metal Braces

Metal braces are the traditional and most common type of braces. They are made from high-grade stainless steel and are highly effective in treating a variety of orthodontic issues, from simple crowding to complex bite problems. Metal braces offer precise control over tooth movement, ensuring optimal results.

Clear Braces
Clear Braces

Clear braces are a more discreet alternative to traditional metal braces. Made from transparent or tooth-colored materials, clear braces blend in with your natural teeth, making them less noticeable. They work similarly to metal braces, using brackets and wires to move the teeth into alignment, but they provide a more aesthetic option for those concerned about the appearance of their braces.

Invisalign for Teens
Clear Aligners

Clear aligners, such as Invisalign, offer a nearly invisible way to straighten your teeth. These custom-made, removable aligners gradually shift your teeth into the desired position. Clear aligners are a popular choice for adults and teens who prefer a more discreet and comfortable orthodontic treatment option. They can be removed for eating, drinking, and maintaining oral hygiene, providing a convenient and flexible solution.

Advantages of Orthodontics for Different Age Groups


Orthodontics for Children

Early orthodontic treatment for children can address issues before they become more serious. Interceptive orthodontics can guide jaw growth, correct harmful oral habits, and improve the appearance and function of your child's smile. Starting treatment at a young age can also reduce the need for more extensive procedures later on.


Orthodontics for Teens

The teenage years are an ideal time for orthodontic treatment, as the jaw and teeth are still developing. Orthodontics for teens can correct misalignment, overcrowding, and bite issues, resulting in a healthy, beautiful smile. With options like metal braces, clear braces, and clear aligners, teens can choose the treatment that best fits their lifestyle and preferences.

Orthodontics for Adults

It's never too late to achieve a straight, beautiful smile. Orthodontic treatment for adults can address issues that were not corrected during childhood or have developed over time. Adults can benefit from the same treatment options as younger patients, including metal braces, clear braces, and clear aligners. Orthodontics can improve not only the appearance of your smile but also your overall oral health and confidence.
