The staff of Girdwood Orthodontics is very friendly and patient focused. We try to make each patient’s visit very personal by making each patient feel special. We take the time to find out unique things about each patient, whether it be hobbies, sports, school, work, or other activities. Our goal is to make each person feel like a part of our family.
We believe in the FISH! philosophy of customer service. What is FISH!? Well, FISH! is having a customer focused business. With each day and every patient we strive to:
- Choose a Positive Attitude
- Make Our Patient’s Day
- Be Focused only on the Patient that we are working on
- Play and Have Fun

We are also a highly trained and skilled staff. We strive for excellence when we perform every task at Girdwood Orthodontics. To continually stay on the very cutting edge of technology, we attend the annual meeting of the American Association of Orthodontists as well as other regional orthodontic meetings. The staff maintains a certain number of continuing education hours in order to maintain their license.
