Whether it’s Mendon Ponds or the High Peaks of the Adirondacks, I love to travel and explore new places. One of the most memorable experiences I’ve had was a rare opportunity to join a medical team backpacking through the Himalayan Mountains delivering much needed care to isolated villages.

What We Promise

What We Promise


Personal Approach

Orthodontics can be complicated and treatment can change from doctor to doctor. Your treatment starts and finishes with Dr. Lazzara and a dedicated team seeing you at every visit.


Enjoy your journey to a new smile. Our office is different because of our highly trained team prepared to exceed your expectations. Just as a championship sports team excels when members work together, our team promises proficiency and experience for our patients like no other office. From sports jerseys to game rooms, come see why our office is a Rochester favorite!

New Technology

Moving teeth is not what it used to be. Whether it is digital impressions or 3d x-rays to analyze complicated cases and airway concerns, our office is up to date with all of the new equipment and techniques to simplify and improve your treatment.

Top Invisalign Provider

A proper training in orthodontics matters when it comes to moving teeth with Invisalign. Not all cases are simple Invisalign cases unless they are properly diagnosed and treatment planned. Dr. Lazzara has successfully treated hundreds of patients of all ages, ranging from 10 to 82 years old.


From early morning to evening appointments, our office is available Monday through Friday for your convenience.

Community Support

Dr. Lazzara and the team at Lazzara Smiles believe in the continued support of our local community. From sports sponsorships to teaching thousands of elementary and middle school students about dental hygiene, we are committed to giving back and building up our local community.
