Two Generations of Patients Patient

Excellence in Orthodontics

We provide our patients with the highest quality orthodontic care in a personal, professional environment. Getting to know you and meeting your individual orthodontic needs are our foremost concerns.

As a testament to Dr. Simmons' commitment of excellence, he is certified by the American Board of Orthodontics (ABO), the only orthodontic specialty certifying board recognized by the American Dental Association. Less than 50% of practicing orthodontists in the United States have taken the steps necessary to become board certified. Dr Simmons also has been named one of "America's Top Dentist" in a survey taken by Consumer's Research Council of America. The independent survey polled area dentists and asked: who would you trust with your own family's teeth? Dr. Simmons is proud to accept this highly coveted award and thanks the area dental professionals for their continued confidence and support. In addition, Dr. Simmons is listed in Charlotte Magazine as one of the top 100 doctors in the Charlotte area.

Complimentary Initial Exam

Every patient gets a complimentary comprehensive exam on their initial visit. Dr. Simmons personally discusses his clinical findings with you.

State-of-the-Art Technology

Our office is technologically advanced in the field of orthodontics. We offer not only digital photographs, records and models, but also digital X-rays. Digital X-rays produce 80% less radiation than the traditional variety. Our office is nearly paperless, allowing us to provide our patients with faster and more efficient service.

Dr. Simmons and Patient

We Utilize the Latest Systems Available

There are new and exciting modalities in orthodontics. In the past, orthodontist would use heavy forces to move the teeth. Today in orthodontics, Dr. Simmons uses the DAMON SYSTEM. This brace system utilizes light forces and low friction to move teeth generally faster and more gently than ever before. The results are outstanding. The patients in our office also benefit from Dr. Simmons using the latest technologies in the following ways:

  • Temporary Anchorage Devices to provide anchorage to specific areas of tooth movement.
  • Laser equipment to enhance the contouring of high gingival tissue in order to properly position certain braces.
  • Invisalign is available for patients who are good candidates. It is the invisible way to straighten your teeth. Dr. Simmons has been listed as a premier provider and has had patient records published in early versions of Invisalign literature.

Superior Customer Service

Orthodontic treatment is a long-term, ongoing process. Knowing this, we strive to make your orthodontic treatment in our office a positive experience. We take pride in being a very friendly oriented office.
