Rachel Feinstein, DDS
Meet the orthodontist who is going to bring you your “Feinest” smile!
Dr. Rachel Feinstein is an enthusiastic, board-certified orthodontist in Richmond, Virginia, with a positive attitude toward life that is inspiring. Highly educated, well-trained and fluent in Spanish, she attended Washington University in St. Louis where she earned her undergraduate degree.
Dr. Rachel Feinstein obtained her dental education from New York University College of Dentistry, followed by a one-year Consortium for Translational Orthodontic Research Fellowship, and a three-year Certificate of Orthodontics and Dentofacial Orthopedics at NYU.
During her research fellowship year, she focused her study on understanding accelerated and efficient orthodontics. She takes pride in her research being featured on the cover of the American Journal of Orthodontics and Dentofacial Orthopedics and its use in orthodontic seminars. Her training focused on areas of Invisalign® clear aligners, traditional braces, orthognathic surgery cases, early interceptive treatment and adult orthodontics, among others.
Dr. Feinstein is passionate about “mindful orthodontics,” an approach that considers a patient’s whole-body health, habits (e.g., thumb sucking, sleep conditions, tongue thrusting, breathing) and lifestyle when formulating her treatment plans and is experienced in the latest techniques and certified in the most up-to-date procedures. She is highly qualified to provide individualized comprehensive, compassionate and comfortable care for children, teenagers and adults. She’ll always sit with every patient at every appointment to make the orthodontic experience extraordinary!
