At Lawless Orthodontics, knowledge is key. Gleaned not only from formal education, but also from hands-on experience. Did you know that only 6 of 100 dental school graduates go on to become orthodontists? After completing his undergraduate program, Dr. Lawless completed 4 years of dental school, followed by a rigorous residency, and a Master’s of Science degree in Orthodontics and Dentofacial Orthopedics. In addition, our assistants are certified orthodontic assistants through OrthoAssist, which means they not only studied dental assisting, but they also have attended a specialty program to learn specifically about orthodontic practices.

Dr. Lawless and his entire team regularly attend continuing education courses in order to stay current on the latest orthodontic technology. These courses include annual association meetings, study clubs, OSHA courses, and local continuing education opportunities.
