Cordray Orthodontics for Truly Beautiful Smiles

Thank you for considering Cordray Orthodontics as your orthodontic team. We value your trust and confidence in us and will work to exceed your expectations. Get to know us and learn how our expertise can benefit you. At Cordray Orthodontics we are committed to delivering Truly Beautiful Smiles and we are confident that you will receive orthodontic care that will make a difference in your life.

Not Just a Better Smile, But a Truly Beautiful Smile

We understand that our patients want to look better and feel more confident about their smile. Orthodontics can help you achieve a better smile. But to achieve a “truly beautiful” smile takes not only straightening of the teeth, but also paying attention to the shape and position of each tooth and its relation to each other and your face. To accomplish this Dr. Cordray meets with each patient at each visit. Also, Dr. Cordray’s finishing processes go beyond just tooth alignment, by also improving the shape, positioning, and look of each tooth. The result is not just a better smile, but a Truly Beautiful Smile.

Speed and Convenience are Important

Dr. Cordray understands that everyone wants to be in and out of braces as quickly as possible. Accordingly, Dr. Cordray achieves some of the shortest treatment times by meeting with each patient at EVERY visit. The result is that you will get your braces off faster and with fewer visits.

People, both children and adults, are busy, especially today. They don’t like to be kept waiting and we schedule accordingly. Our goal, which we take very seriously, is to be 100% on time.

Braces, No Longer Just For Children

A large number of adults and children get braces and other forms of orthodontic treatment each year. We have patients from as young as 3 years old to as young at heart as 83, with all ages in between. Although we place an emphasis on interceptive and corrective procedures for children, about 40% of our patients are adults who are excited to make the improvement in their smile that they have always wanted to make.

Younger/Healthier Smiles

Like our younger patients, our adult patients are concerned about the aesthetics of their smile. With that goal in mind, Dr. Cordray goes beyond just the positioning of the teeth by utilizing additional techniques that also help create a younger looking smile.

Also, many of our adult patients have concerns regarding bite problems and/or restorative needs. Some patients complain of headaches, jaw pain amd wear caused by a poorly designed bite. Dr. Cordray utilizes methodologies that help improve the overall functioning of the jaw joint and shape and function of each tooth to help them work better and last longer.

Honest, Straight-forward Communication.

We are aware that some dental and orthodontic practices make tooth problems seem dire, life and death, and immediately urgent. In contrast, Dr. Cordray will give you an honest assessment of your orthodontic problems, present you with a number of alternative treatment plans, give you reasonable pricing and realistic treatment times. Surprisingly, our estimated treatment times are often significantly less than you might expect.

Finally, we are not in the business of selling orthodontics. We respect your privacy and right to choose and will give you all the time you need to consider your orthodontic options. As Dr. Cordray always says, “No one ever died of crooked teeth.” But we are here for you if and when you are ready to take this significant step in your life.

Pragmatic Approach

We provide the highest level of orthodontic treatment but we don’t ask our patients to pay for video games, large screen tv’s, or a lavishly decorated waiting room. At Cordray Orthodontics we put the emphasis where it should be – on you and your smile. We do use the highest quality orthodontic equipment available (even though much of it is behind the scenes). But we will work closely with your dentist to ensure that x-rays and diagnostic services are not duplicated. We want you to see the Cordray difference in your beautiful smile, not in your pocketbook!

The Cost of Orthodontic Treatment

If you are like most people, you may be concerned about the cost of orthodontic treatment. We truly understand your concern. At Cordray Orthodontics, we have been in practice for more than 27 years and over the years we have learned what is important to achieving a truly beautiful result in the shortest amount of time possible / in orthodontic treatment / care and what are unnecessary expenses.
Dr. Cordray believes that cost should not be an obstacle to a healthy, beautiful smile. There are many ways to pay for orthodontic treatment.

We welcome second opinions.

It is in your best interest to get several opinions regarding your proposed orthodontic treatment. We routinely give them and they are free of charge. If you are facing a decision about major dental treatment and would like a second opinion, we are happy to provide this service. Combining cosmetics and functional dentistry and orthodontics is an art form and requires that your health care provider(s) have the specialized training needed to achieve your desired outcome.

Conservative Treatment

On a case by case basis, Dr. Cordray not only presents you / each patient with your / their treatment options, but also advises you on how to achieve the most economical, least invasive, and shortest treatment plan for achieving the desired results. For instance, while many younger patients can benefit from early orthodontic correction, others are better served by waiting and treating in one short phase instead of two.

Invest in Education & Equipment

Dr. Cordray and his staff also invest in continuing education to keep current on the latest research and treatment. Dr. Cordray is one of the country’s most well-respected orthodontists. He teaches at The Ohio State University in the Department of Orthodontics. He has received numerous honors and awards in the field of orthodontics. Read more about Dr. Cordray…
