We Make Orthodontics Fun
Dr. Dudley is an orthodontist. Orthodontists are dentists first. Out of 100 dental school graduates, on average, only six go on to become orthodontists.
To practice orthodontics, Dr. Dudley spent 11 years in training (four years of college, four years of dental school, and three years of orthodontics residency).
The orthodontic student spends three years learning the skills needed to manage tooth movement (orthodontics) and to guide facial development (dentofacial orthopedics).
From the moment you contact our office to your final retainer check, we want you to be completely satisfied. Dr. Dudley will review your records – photos and X-rays – to find the best way to treat your needs.
Then you’ll choose the type of braces you want – [traditional metal, clear ceramic, or Invisalign).
Our goal at Dudley Smiles is not just to give you the smile of your dreams. We want you to leave our office after every appointment knowing that you got the best possible care.
Gone are the days of painful headgear, clunky bands on every tooth, and overly tight stainless steel wires. At Dudley Smiles, we take pride in making the process of straightening your teeth as comfortable as possible. This is because of shape-memory NiTi wires.
With the same technology that NASA uses, NiTi wires exert a constant force against the teeth to move them in the right direction. This means no wire tightening and less time in braces. The time you do spend in your braces is more comfortable.
Everyone dreams of a medical office that takes pride in flexibility. Yes, we offer flexible appointment scheduling and flexible treatment options, but we also offer flexible payment options.
This means that after we have determined your insurance coverage and filed it for you, we will sit down and come up with a monthly payment plan that fits your budget. We also offer discounts to patients who can pay in full on the front end.
Dr. Dudley is up-to-date on the latest in orthodontic treatment and braces technology.
Dudley Smiles is the location for modern orthodontic treatment. We offer aesthetic options like ceramic braces, Invisalign, and incognito braces (these a practically invisible and fit on the inside of your teeth).
We also use mini implants and diode laser treatment for faster and more efficient tooth movement and treatment times.
