What Sets Us Apart

Why choose Waugh & Allen Orthodontics?

Custom Treatment

Our treatment is individualized to meet each patient’s needs. There is no “one treatment fits all” philosophy here. Dr. Waugh reviews each patient's case to determine the proper appliances and sequencing to meet their individual treatment needs. You will find at Waugh & Allen Orthodontics, that Dr. Waugh treats each patient with specialized attention, as he would his own family.  

Continuing Education

Orthodontics is both an art and an evolving science with frequent developments in techniques, technology, and treatment. For this reason our doctor and staff regularly attend seminars and conferences devoted to orthodontic treatment and patient care; with patient care as our top priority, this is our commitment to you.


Waugh & Allen Orthodontics was one of the first practices to offer the Clarity™ ADVANCED clear braces, the most invisible ones on the market. Dr. Waugh believes that aesthetics are important to the orthodontic experience because the invisible bracket is less noticeable. Because Dr. Waugh wants his patients to feel great about themselves throughout their treatment, we offer our clear braces at no additional charge. Dr. Waugh also uses the Platinum Proportion® concept to optimize smiles.

Optimal Oral Health – BriteBrace®

Waugh & Allen Orthodontics is the only practices in the Athens area with a full-time registered dental hygienist on the team to help make sure your teeth look STUNNING when your braces come off. You will love Tracy, whose BriteBrace® care at every adjustment appointment is making national news by achieving quality of hygiene scores for our patients that are TWICE as good as national averages!

Advanced Technology

The wires and braces that we use allow us to maximize time between visits, so that we are able to see our patients every eight to ten weeks, which limits absences from work or school. When it comes to imaging, we use digital scanning and CBCT x-ray technology for optimum diagnostics.

State-of-the-Art Radiology Department

With the latest in digital imaging technology, Dr. Waugh is able to use the most non-invasive diagnostics to make your treatment as comfortable as possible. This technology also alerts us to other possible treatment needs that allow us to refer our patients to other medical or dental specialists, as needed.
