For over a decade, Dr. Walters and her staff have labored to provide their patients the highest quality, state-of-the art comprehensive care in a warm and welcoming environment.

A native of Dutchess County, Dr. Walters returned to the area to practice orthodontics after completing her undergraduate studies at The College of the Holy Cross and her Doctorate of Dental Medicine at the University of Connecticut. She then completed a three-year residency program specializing in orthodontics at Montefiore Medical Center. Board-certified in 2010 by the American Board of Orthodontics, Dr. Walters’ professional affiliations include the American Association of Orthodontists, the American Dental Association, the Northeast Society of Orthodontists, the New York State Dental Association, the Dutchess County Dental Society, and the 9th District Dental Society. In 2006 she was inducted into the dental honor society Omicron Kappa Upsilon, which recognizes members for both character and professionalism. 

From providing support to charitable organizations, to sponsoring youth sports teams and educating local school children about dental hygiene, Dr. Walters prides herself on her involvement in the community.  She makes it a priority to pay it forward and hopes to inspire others to do the same.

Dr. Walters enjoys spending her free time with her husband, Clint Walters, a local school teacher, and their two beautiful daughters, Eloise and Lucy. The Walters clan also welcomed a new addition this year—the family dog, Nitro!  Together, they embrace the great outdoors through hiking, skiing, and camping, and simply taking time to enjoy family and friends.

Dr. Lorraine Brenner / Orthodontist

Dr. Lorraine Brenner’s orthodontic experience dates back to 2007 when she was an orthodontic assistant while in college. She discovered how much she loved learning about teeth and how they move; and seeing firsthand how valuable an improved bite and smile can be.  So much so, that Dr. Brenner decided to dedicate herself to becoming an orthodontist herself.  Dr. Brenner obtained her Doctorate in Dental Medicine from Rutgers School of Dental Medicine in New Jersey, in 2014. She furthered her education at Hackensack University Medical Center in New Jersey, where she completed a general practice residency program in 2015. Directly following her general practice residency, Dr. Brenner began her orthodontic training at St. Barnabas Hospital in New York, where she obtained her orthodontic certificate in 2018.

During her time at St. Barnabas, Dr. Brenner served as chief resident, where she would assist in training incoming residents. She also received the “Herzberg Award,” which is given annually to the graduating resident that has demonstrated the highest degree of clinical proficiency. Dr. Brenner is well versed in the practice of standard braces and appliances, and is also tackling advanced cases with Invisalign treatment. She welcomes new technologies and applying the most current state of the art treatment for her patients.

In addition to clinical practice Dr. Brenner also delights in teaching. She is an orthodontic attending/instructor at Hackensack University Medical Center in Hackensack, New Jersey. In her free time, Dr. Brenner enjoys spending time with family, hiking, biking and skiing. She earned a gold medal for freestyle skiing at the Junior Olympics in Park City, Utah in 2005.
