Orthodontist opens office in Shelton: ‘There’s a lot of vitality here’

A grand opening took place Tuesday at Feinberg Orthodontics, which recently moved to Shelton from Stratford.

The practice now is located in the Scinto Towers corporate park at 4 Corporate Drive, Suite 195. The office is on the ground floor with an exterior entrance.

“I love it,” Dr. Mark Feinberg said of the location. “It’s a gem. I like the ambiance, the atmosphere, the community, the exposure, the stimulation all of the people. There’s a lot of vitality here.”

Dignitaries attend ribbon-cutting

On Tuesday, Feinberg was joined by Mayor Mark Lauretti, Robert Scinto and Robert Scinto Jr. at a ribbon-cutting ceremony. The Scintos own the building where Feinberg Orthodontics now is situated.

During the event, guests were able to tour the office and partake in food and refreshments.

Feinberg Orthodontics opened at the Shelton site in mid-November. In addition to Feinberg, the office has six employees.

Practice began in 1965

The practice was started by Dr. Leonard Feinberg, Mark’s father, in 1965. It had been on Main Street in Stratford, in the Paradise Green area.

Mark Feinberg said his patients have been receptive to the new location. “I’m only nine minutes from the old office,” he said.

He said the practice has served generations of the many families through the years. “We’ve formed a lot of friendships with the families,” he said.

Feinberg said he enjoys being able to help people by doing his job. “It’s an opportunity to change people’s lives with their smiles,” he said. “What we do has a real impact on people’s self-worth.”

Board-certified orthodontist

Dr. Mark Feinberg is a board-certified orthodontist and a diplomate to the American Board of Orthodontics. A native of Fairfield, he specializes in orthodontic digital diagnostics and robotics, and is the exclusive area provider of the SureSmile technology.
