It’s back! Garfinkle Orthodontics summer ice cream, see below for details..

Greetings from Garfinkle Orthodontics. We are thrilled to be back in the office, feeling inspired to help you smile, feeling safe while we are here, and fulfilled once we get home. All our patients and their families have been so understanding, patient, and appreciative, it has made coming back with all the PPE and rules quite rewarding. It has been so nice to get back on a schedule and feel like we are a bit more in control of our world than we were during our 8-week office pause.

Thanks for being accepting of our new office protocols in terms of waiting in your car and the wellness screening we perform. I hope you find these steps tolerable and comforting. Please know we are closely following the appropriate regulations and will adjust as indicated.


Our team is back together and operating at a high level. Some team members are working remotely, and some new roles were developed, but nothing good communication and focus on our vision cannot solve.

Implementation of our virtual treatment options have been great. Whether you are interested in starting treatment or are already in treatment, if you are interested, please visit our website, or give us a call to discuss.

Stay strong and keep smiling,

Dr. Judah

Community is more important than ever, here’s how we’re staying connected!

On Racial Injustice

Dr. Judah and the entire Garfinkle Orthodontics Team is frustrated and saddened by the continued senseless acts of racial injustice across our country. In these unprecedented times, we stand united with those targeted by racism and prejudice. We unite as a team, with our patients, with our families, with our communities. We will continue to learn and show up in impactful ways to right that which is still so wrong, in hopes of being part of a society free from these injustices.

We are committed to serving each individual we have the honor to know with love, respect, and kindness. Our space is a safe space for everyone and we will not tolerate racism or injustice anywhere we find it.


If you know of an organization that is working to stop racial injustice and would benefit from monetary or volunteer support, please email us


Smile Oregon

Smile Oregon is a non-profit organization that Dr. Garfinkle co-founded to help provide support and education for families affected by cleft palate and craniofacial conditions.
