DUTCHESS ORTHODONTICS

OUR PHILOSOPHY
Dutchess Orthodontics’s treatment objective is not only to straighten teeth but also to balance the face and jaws. For many patients, early treatment is vital to the development of the jaws and face, as well as overall health. Crooked teeth and small jaws are often a sign of an underlying issue; allergies, swollen tonsils and adenoids, thumb-sucking habits, chronic mouth breathing, and underdeveloped facial muscles are just a few reasons that the jaws do not develop properly. We often see children who don’t sleep well at night because small jaws leave little room for the tongue, which can then fall back into the airway while the child is sleeping. Sleep-disordered breathing leads to many other health issues, including attention-deficit disorders, reduced physical performance, and poor performance in school. In such cases, we often recommends expanding and advancing the jaws with specialized appliances. This creates more airway space, improved facial aesthetics, and can lead to improved overall health.

What Our Clients Have To Say…

Dr Walters and her wonderful staff have taken care of both my kids braces over the past 4 years. I couldn’t be happier with the care they’ve received and highly recommend Dutchess Orthodontics. We never once had to wait for more than 5 minutes to be seen. We were always able to get in very quickly for emergency appointments. And most importantly the entire staff and Dr Walters are nice, caring, always smiling and excellent at what they do. I always felt like they really cared about my kids. Thank you for making what could be an unpleasant situation into a very positive experience. Highly recommend.
I have traveled over 1/2 hour each way for over 4 years for Dr. Walters’ care of my 2 children! From palate expander, both in braces, to retainers, I’ve done this because it has been worth every mile! Dr. Walters always listened, cared for & treated us with respect & professionalism. Her staff is amazing!! I love that they’ve stayed the same the whole time! That really speaks volumes to me. I’ve never waited at an appointment EVER, I’ve always been able to make & change appointments easily & work out payment plans to fit our needs. But truly, Dr. Walters & her staff’s care has been top notch!! If you need orthodontic care, go to Dr. Walters!

My sister just got her braces off, and she looks great. That makes me feel assured that mine will look great soon too. My Mom loves the office staff. They are cheerful, helpful, and knowledgeable, and they allow her to pay our bills at a comfortable rate. Dr Walters is a pretty, nicely- dressed orthodontist. She is young and full of creative ideas like games and contests to keep us motivated to take care of our teeth and advertise her practice at the same time! Having braces is no picnic, but Dutchess Orthodontics makes it fun!
