Golovan Orthodontics Practice Update

March 5, 2024

Dear Golovan Orthodontics Families,

I wanted to reach out to you to share some exciting news about our practice. I am pleased to let you know that I am merging my practice with Dr. Shira Tor at Weiss and Tor Orthodontics, which is conveniently located at 3755 Orange Place, Suite 100A, Orange Village, OH 44122. Her phone number is (216) 292-6340. I have known Dr. Tor for over 10 years and have the greatest admiration and respect for her, both as an exceptionally skilled and compassionate orthodontist and person. She has my highest possible recommendation, and I couldn’t be happier knowing that she will continue to provide you and your family with the high quality orthodontic care that you’ve come to expect. Please know that I plan to stay attached to her practice and will be available to support you in any way that you need.

It has truly been a privilege and a pleasure getting to know you, and I want to express my heartfelt gratitude for allowing me to be involved in your care, and for sharing this part of my life with you. I can’t think of a better way to have spent my days than helping people, especially kids, feel a little bit better about themselves. It’s with great satisfaction that I’ve seen firsthand the impact that small gestures of kindness can make. For me, this experience has been the honor of a lifetime, and in the most sincere way, I wish you all the best of everything in the future. 

I hope our paths cross again, and we find each other doing well, with a smile on our faces knowing we are both better for having spent this time together.

With warm personal regards,

Gary M. Golovan, D.D.S., M.S.




Our office is dedicated to the treatment of every patient with state of the art technical skill and individualized personal attention. We provide the highest quality of specialty orthodontic care in a comfortable, patient oriented atmosphere.  We take great pride in treating each and every patient like family.  

What makes our office unique?  Personal service and state of the art technology.

Our patient - centered, private practice offers us the ability to provide a unique orthodontic experience for our patients.  

Our office utilizes the most advanced technology available for digital bracket placement.  A 3-D intraoral scan is taken of each patient and computer software is used to locate the most ideal position for each bracket on each tooth within 1/100 mm precision.  A virtual 3-D image demonstrating ideal bracket positions is then generated to evaluate bracket positions prior to their placement on the patient's teeth.  Digital bracket placement is significantly more accurate than bonding brackets one at a time by hand, resulting in faster treatment times, better treatment outcomes, and a more patient friendly experience.
