What Sets Us Apart

Our Vision:

To craft smiles that elevate the spirit.

Our Mission:

Every Smile Matters. Our expertise and passion allows us to provide confident and healthy smiles for every individual regardless of complexity.

With attention to detail, we provide a seamless and coordinated experience in our office.

“We all wear the bowtie”. We bring our best attitude and effort to work to contribute to something greater than we could accomplish alone. We focus on mature communication. We learn from each other by inviting and providing productive feedback.

We welcome the inevitable challenges that arise and turn them into opportunities for growth. We strive for constant improvement, not always being the best, but getting better every day, being proud that we are advancing our cause and looking for ways to grow.

Caring for our patients is a privilege and an honor, one that we take seriously and are grateful for. Our lives are enriched by the opportunity to serve. We specialize in YOU.

Garfinkle Orthodontics is committed to giving back to our community.

We are life-long learners, taking a balanced approach to integrating new ideas into our office.

Our Values:

Be honest: We treat our patients and each other with integrity.

Be detail oriented: If excellence were easy, everyone would have it. We do not cut corners in any aspect of the patient experience.

Be dependable: We are accountable to our patients, our team, and ourselves.

Be of service: When in doubt of what to do for a patient or teammate, “Make it right”. We are only here to make good things happen for other people.

Be a solid teammate: By being respectful, honoring each other’s strengths, and communicating maturely, we can have fun, support each other, and be part of something greater together than we could accomplish alone. We understand and appreciate the importance of a healthy and fulfilling work-life balance.


When you’re a patient at Garfinkle Orthodontics, you, your oral health, and your smile are our highest priority. Dr. Judah Garfinkle and Dr. Richard Garfinkle, along with our team, are passionate about creating healthy, beautiful smiles for our patients. We’re equally as passionate about developing lasting relationships with each person we care for, getting to know them on a personal level and becoming friends with them.

Our office is a friendly, welcoming space, where patients love to visit and we love to work. This is an environment filled with laughter and smiles, where each patient knows how important they are to us, and that we are here to ensure their orthodontic journey is one they enjoy. Creating straight, healthy teeth and amazing smiles for people we care about is truly our pleasure. We’d love to get to know you while crafting your incredible new smile, too!

As professionals, we promise to always:

  • Treat you respectfully, compassionately, and gently, as we would a family member
  • Provide ethical treatment recommendations and care
  • Encourage your participation in every part of your treatment
  • Keep you updated on the progress we’re making
