Business overview

The goal of every great orthodontist is to turn your smile into a masterpiece. Having a better smile boosts your confidence. You will feel good about yourself and you will take better care of your brand new smile. An orthodontic treatment lasts a lifetime so it is important to invest in braces so that you can enlighten people with your striking smile as soon as possible.

The duration of orthodontic treatment varies from patient to patient. The typical experience lasts anywhere from.. one to three years due to the severity of the problem and the progress that is made between each visit to our offices. Each patient responds differently to orthodontic treatment so the time frame may change at any time. If you catch certain problems early enough, our early treatment procedures can be as short as six months.
If you are self conscious of your smile, then come in for a consult. Let us help you to regain your smiling confidence with our fantastic orthodontic care.

Dr. Dierkes is a nationally recognized orthodontic specialist who has been creating beautiful smiles for over 30 years. He served as Associate Professor and Chairman of the Department of Orthodontics at Emory University until 1985 when he returned to private practice. As reported in Self Magazine, the American Association of Orthodontists recognized Dr. Dierkes as one of the top 10 orthodontists in the country. Dr. Dierkes specializes in early orthodontic treatment, comprehensive treatment, surgical orthodontics and facial orthopedics as well as the treatment of chronic head and neck pain associated with jaw dysfunction (TMJ/TMD).

Treats the patient holistically, 4/16/2014

Dr. Dierkes has been treating my granddaughter for orthodontics and myself for both TMJ and orthodontics. I wouldn't trust anyone else as he knows more about the effects of food allergies on the... structure of the body than most doctors and dentists. He has helped us both enormously. We are both looking forward to the ability to chew most effectively with beautiful smiles as the added bonus.

Best in the US, 4/15/2014

It was important to me to find a orthodontist that would take a proactive approach to solving a developing jaw problem on my 6 years old daughter. Dr. Dierkes did more than that. He diagnosed what... was CAUSING her jaw to develop the way it was, which in her case was her diet. Yes. Her diet. I was absolutely impressed by Dr. Dierkes knowledge and ability to take a holistic view of HER, not only her JAW. We still in early stages of the treatment but I can see results already. I'd recommend Dr. Dierks and his staff to anyone in a heartbeat. Gabriela Acosta

Works to please his patients

My wife and I had four children in orthodontics through the years. Dr. Dierkes always tried to allow the children to keep their natural teeth rather than pulling teeth. We liked that about Dr. Dierkes. We had one child who needed extensive orthodontic and jaw work. Dr. Dierkes worked in partnership with an oral surgeon to make sure that our daughter achieved maximum success from a very complicated matter. We were very happy with the outcome. All of our children are now grown and have beautiful smiles and very perfect jaw alignment.
