A Design for Excellence
Providing families with superior treatment experiences and orthodontic results has always been Dr. Waugh’s passion. Combined with his love for teaching, his way of practicing orthodontics allows him to bring the latest information and technology to his patients to enhance their care.
“My mother is an artist and my father was an engineer, so it was only natural that I chose a profession that involves both of these natural talents,” Dr. Waugh believes. “Beautiful smiles are uniquely delivered and it is my personal goal to make the most of each patient’s smile.”
Dr. Waugh’s unique practice systems for photography, optimal hygiene, and systems of braces include secrets that give him the advantage in delivering timely, clean, and efficient services for all patients. In addition, he is the only orthodontist in the Athens area with a Registered Dental Hygienist and a full-time Registered Radiologic Technologist who oversee the ever-important areas of oral health while in braces and X-ray safety before, during, and after treatment.
Dr. Waugh is empathic when he explain, “Practicing orthodontics is a privilege I have taken seriously since opening my practice in Athens in 1989. Achieving treatment excellence is my goal for every member of this great community which my family and I are proud to call home. My promise to you is to treat you and your family as if they were my own family. Each case is treated according to the patient's individual need and every treatment plan is specifically designed to address your treatment goals.”
