Why Warford Orthodontics

We are proud to be Bismarck / Mandan’s only multi-generation orthodontists.

When you think about going to an orthodontist, you may naturally visualize braces or Invisalign. By definition, “Orthodontics” is the treatment of irregularities in the teeth.

Braces and Invisalign move so much more than teeth.

If you have been putting off having your child see an orthodontist, please do not wait any longer. We strongly-recommend every child see an orthodontist by the age of seven to prevent potential self confidence and form / functional challenges.

If you are considering orthodontic care to improve the appearance of your own smile, we look forward to seeing you soon.

As always, our initial consultation is complimentary including digital x-rays and photos.

Stephanie Nishek Marrufo
Its hard to express how amazing it is to watch your smile transform. Being a "30-something" professional, I thought my time for dental correction (i.e. braces) had passed, but working with Warford Orthodontics changed all that. I am so impressed with the staff, the doctor and the orthodontic technology that they have made available to our community.
Katie Wald
The BEST hands down!!!! The entire crew at Warford is AMAZING!!! You are greeted with a smile when you walk in the door and every step from there is done w a smile and a fun, positive staff!!! They offer financing options, competitive pricing, and FREE consultations- yes you read that right...go in and get a FREE consult and hear some options! I am just blown away by the kindness and generosity that Warford offers every single doesn’t matter if you’re 7 or 40- you’re treated like a valued guest.I love Warford! I would recommend them to anyone!!!

Jessica Manson
They have the best staff all around. From the minute you walk in till you leave from your appointment they make you feel welcome and appreciated. We drive 99 miles for my son to get the best service for his braces. I was a little nervous for my son when they told me he had to get braces, but they made it very comfortable for him and that made me feel better. Thanks for all you do.

Angel Whitehead
Warford is amazing! From an excellent atmosphere to excellent staff. I feel welcome and comfortable every time I come in! The flexibility with scheduling and the ortho process is also awesome. They are very understanding when things come up last minute. They are also great with there payment options which is very hard to find sometimes! I came in starting with Invisalign and Dr. John switched me to braces no problem when I asked. Glad I went to them !!!
