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 recommend 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.

The entire experience was amazing! The whole staff was always very patient, knowledgeable and professional. Everyone expertly attended to the needs of our daughter. After arrival, we never had to wait more than a few minutes to be seen. The staff helped us to navigate through the financial process with ease. The staff seems to love their jobs, and it shows. We could not be happier with the service we’ve received here, and we will continue to recommend this practice to all of our friends and family.
We have been coming here for 2 years, and every visit has been quick and easy! The women who work the front are patient and helpful.  The doctor and her staff are kind and knowledgeable. One of the greatest things about this office is how appreciative dr Walters is of her staff and patients.  She is constantly giving back to her community through gift cards and free events. I highly recommend dutchess orthodontics to everyone.
This office is a breath of fresh air after the previous orthodontist I took my twins to in the past. They are courteous, efficient, extremely clean and knowledgeable. Every visit we are taken on time if not early and my daughter hits the chair and someone takes care of her immediately and she is finished in no time. It’s absolutely wonderful to have a Dr. who take the utmost care and time for each patient. We love it here and my last daughter will be having her treatments in this office without a doubt. I recommend this place to anyone in the area who wants professional and outstanding treatment.
