What Sets

Washington Orthodontics APART

Choosing an orthodontist is a major decision, so we are here to make that process easier for you.

Before we opened our offices in Sumner and Columbia, we ensured some things made us stand out. With state-of-the-art technology, experienced professionals and a patient-centered approach, we proudly offer top-quality orthodontic care that sets us apart. Our goal is to give you a beautiful, healthy smile that will last a lifetime.

Expertise and Experience

Our father-son tandem, Dr. Ken W. Washington and Dr. Ken T. Washington, have over 40 years of combined experience in orthodontic practice. They are both board-certified and regularly attend continuing education courses to stay up-to-date with the latest techniques and advancements in the field.

With a team as compassionate as they are competent, Washington Orthodontics is redefining what it means to receive orthodontic care. With their expertise, you can trust that your smile is in good hands.

Comprehensive Orthodontic Services

We offer a wide range of orthodontic services to cater to all your needs. We are equipped to handle any orthodontic issue, from braces to craniofacial orthodontics and oral and maxillofacial surgery. Our doctors will work with you to determine the best treatment option for your unique case, and our team will guide you through each step of the process.

Cutting-Edge Technology

At Washington Orthodontics, we invest in the latest technology to provide our patients with the most efficient and effective treatment options. From digital X-rays and 3D imaging to Invisalign, we use advanced tools to create a personalized treatment plan for each individual. This not only allows for more accurate diagnoses but also ensures a comfortable and precise treatment process.

Patient-Centered Approach

As soon as you enter our doors, you instantly become a family, and we genuinely mean it. Your comfort and satisfaction are our top priorities, that's why when we designed our offices in Columbia and Sumner, we made sure they were welcoming and relaxing. Our friendly staff is dedicated to making your experience as pleasant as possible, and our doctors take the time to listen to your concerns and answer any questions you may have.

Unparalleled Personalization

We don't believe in one-size-fits-all solutions. Each patient that comes to us is unique, so we offer personalized treatment regimens tailored to their needs. It starts with a comprehensive assessment, followed by in-depth conversations to understand the patient's dental history, concerns and goals. 

We engage patients as partners in their dental care journey, ensuring they have a say in the personalized care plan we create. This level of attentiveness fosters a relationship of trust and comfort. This way, patients feel seen, heard and cared for throughout their entire treatment.

A Commitment to Modernity and Tradition

The age-old adage "If it's not broken, don't fix it" resonates with our practice ethos. While we embrace the latest technologies and techniques, we also recognize the value of traditional orthodontic methods that have stood the test of time. This balance allows us to offer our patients a variety of treatment options while maintaining excellent results. We constantly strive to improve our practice by incorporating the best of both worlds. 

An Emphasis on Patient Education

We believe that an informed patient is a powerful advocate for their own health. Education is at the core of our patient care philosophy. Our professional orthodontists take the time to explain procedures, risks and benefits in clear, jargon-free language, improving the dental experience. With knowledge comes empowerment, and our commitment to patient education ensures you make the correct decisions for your lifelong dental health.

Community Involvement

At Washington Orthodontics, we believe in giving back to the community that has supported us throughout the years. We regularly participate in non-profit organizations and efforts to provide dental care for those in need. Dr. Ken T. is involved in Give Kids a Smile and Special Olympics and was recently elected to the South Carolina Commission for Minority Affairs. We are proud to be a part of the Columbia and Sumner communities and strive to make a positive impact.

Dr. Ken T. is an honorary commander of the Shaw Air Force Base. This shows that he is well-respected in the community, and recognized for his contributions both as an orthodontist and as a valued member of society. At Washington Orthodontics, we are not just providing dental care; we are building relationships and making a difference in our local community.
