Welcome to the web site of Depew Orthodontics. Located in Kennesaw and Acworth, Georgia, Dr. Doug Depew specializes in providing quality orthodontic treatment for children, teens and adults.
At our office, you are more than just a patient – you are family! We are thrilled to be able to introduce to you our practice while empowering you with the knowledge needed to make an informed decision concerning you or your child’s orthodontic needs.
Dr. Depew and his highly qualified staff are excited to share with you their knowledge and experience in using the latest, most advanced technology and techniques in orthodontics, such as:
Incognito braces are placed behind your teeth so no one will know you are receiving orthodontic treatment unless you tell them. These braces are 100% customized to ensure you receive optimal orthodontic results.
SmartClip brackets utilize (sliding-door) technology known as “self-ligation,” enabling the wire to slide back and forth within the bracket. This technology creates less friction, results in greater comfort and reduces treatment time.
At Depew Orthodontics, you will see that “high-tech” along with a very “personable touch” go hand in hand. We strive to give you or your child the best and most memorable orthodontic experience in a friendly, comfortable and fun environment!
We appreciate your interest in our practice! If you have any questions about our practice, please contact us. We’ll be glad to assist you in any way we can!
