You’re treated like family

“What would you do if this was your family member?” is a question we ask ourselves every single day. The importance of this can’t be underestimated. There are many decisions to be made, and it’s critical that this philosophy directs our recommendations from Day One.


Whether you’re the Patient or the Patient’s parent, you have direct access to the Doctors at each appointment to answer any questions or concerns you may have. This transparency means the Patients and/or parents are more fully informed making them more effective partners in the overall experience. Whether during office hours or on-call over the weekends, our Staff is available 7 days a week to address any concerns you may have.

Patient Experience

All orthodontists aren’t created equal and all orthodontic experiences aren’t created equal as well. We have some special people working here at Warford Orthodontics, and they are committed to the best experience possible. Don’t just take our word for it, check out our testimonials page here or Facebook and see what our Patients have to say for themselves.


Orthodontic treatment involves a committed and involved Patient to get the best result possible. From the first call, you’re part of the Team, and critically involved in the decision making process to be sure that your goals and any limitations your specific care might encounter are fully explored at the appropriate time. You + Your Assistant + Your Doctor = a Team devoted to your best interests.


Warford Orthodontics is always learning about and embracing the latest in orthodontic technology for the best treatment experience possible. We were the first orthodontic office to offer digital scanning for Invisalign, and are the only Invisalign Elite provider in ND, MT, or MN outside of the Twin Cities Metro area. Whether Invisalign or the latest in traditional braces technology, you can be confident you’re getting the best orthodontic technology has to offer.
