Traditional braces can be used for patients of all ages with a variety of orthodontic needs.
Invisalign® is the clear alternative to braces, and they’re completely removable to make them as convenient as possible.
Clarity™ self-ligating braces are made of translucent ceramic, making them a great option for patients who want a faster treatment that's less noticeable.
Your orthodontic experience starts with your complimentary consultation where you’ll learn all about orthodontics, the services we offer, and which treatment will be right for your unique smile. We look forward to meeting you, so contact our Burlington or Waterdown ON orthodontic office today to schedule your appointment.

Meet Our Doctors

“Orthodontics is about creating straight, beautiful, and functional smiles, but it is also about the satisfaction that comes from helping other people. It has made me a better person by seeing the interaction of family members from so many varied backgrounds and cultures and has given me a greater appreciation for all the people I have in my life. I love seeing each and every one of our patients feel good about their smile.”

Dr. Brian Hurd attended the University of Toronto, graduating with honours in 1973 with his Doctorate of Dental Surgery. He interned at the Hospital for Sick Children for one year and then returned to study the specialty of orthodontics. Following two years of post-graduate education at the University of Toronto, he was certified as an orthodontic specialist in 1976. Upon graduation, he moved to Burlington to set up his practice.
