What Sets Us Apart

hbraces1We understand that you have a choice in who provides your orthodontic care. We'd like to tell you what makes Joseph Hudgins Orthodontics your number-one option!

Board Certified Diplomate of the American Board of Orthodontics

Dr. Joseph Hudgins is board certified by the American Board of Orthodontics, which gives him Diplomate status with the Board. To obtain this distinction, he first earned a dentistry degree and completed an advanced post-doctoral course (accredited by the American Dental Association) of at least two academic years in the specialty of orthodontics. After becoming an orthodontist, Dr. Hudgins then took the extra step of voluntarily completing an examination to become board certified. He passed a written examination and then presented a number of his orthodontic cases. After his evaluation, Dr. Hudgins became a Board Certified Diplomate of the American Board of Orthodontics, a status that is rarely achieved by only 25% of all American orthodontists.

Certified Dental Team

Clinical and Front Office team members are Certified Dental Assistants along with the Clinical Team being Certified Orthodontic Assistants. This means that everyone on staff attends yearly continuing education courses to stay current with the latest dental techniques and procedures.
