Welcome to Joseph Hudgins Orthodontics!

With offices in Carbondale, Carterville, and DuQuoin, our practice's top priority is to provide the highest quality orthodontic care in a friendly, family-owned environment. Our standards are high, and are patients are happy. Ask around!

Beginning over 26 years ago, Dr. Hudgins returned to Southern Illinois after serving in the Navy, and associated with Dr. Fred Nolen, one of the original orthodontists in our area. Years later, the practice of Dr. John Phelps was added to the mix. At this point, thousands of patients have been treated, and a lot of teeth moved!

Dr. Hudgins, who is Board Certified (ABO), utilizes the most recent orthodontic techniques, such as lnvisalign, (we are a top 5% provider in the entire country), braces with colors, clear braces, Damon braces, 3-D imaging, and sleep apnea appliances. Dr. Hudgins can also tell you about making your time in orthodontic treatment go as quickly as possible by using SureSmile and AcceleDent, and fill you in on the "straight teeth for life guarantee".

Dr. Hudgins and his long-term, college-trained staff will ensure you receive the most effective care possible, and will tailor your treatment for your individual case in the shortest amount of time. At your initial exam, you will receive all pertinent information, and be given a recommendation for appropriate orthodontic treatment (most 8 year-olds do not need braces!). For "A Smile that is Good for Life", call our office for a complimentary orthodontic evaluation.
