New Faces....Great Smiles!

At Orthodontic Group of the Finger Lakes, Dr. Mark Paciorek, Dr. Rodney Littlejohn and Dr. Ariana Weissend strive to provide exceptional orthodontic treatment using modern appliances and technology.

Orthodontic Group of the Finger Lakes has served the community since 1914. We are dedicated to meeting the needs of all our patients in Ithaca and Cortland, New York, and surrounding areas.

We realize that a healthy, beautiful smile can make you more confident and improve your self-esteem. Each day our goal is to deliver top-notch care and provide cutting-edge orthodontic treatment. We strive to make your visits to our about-us pleasant and fun! We offer the following services:

  • Innovative treatment options, including self-ligating braces. Self-ligating braces significantly decrease treatment time and are more comfortable than traditional braces.
  • Our doctors are platinum providers for the Invisalign® System. Invisalign is designed to gradually improve your smile using a series of virtually invisible, customized aligners.
  • We utilize the most advanced technology, such as AcceleDent Aura. AcceleDent Aura makes orthodontic treatment faster. 

Contact us today to schedule a complimentary consultation. Our friendly team is eager to answer any of your questions and help you begin your journey to obtaining an incredible smile.
