Fun, Confident Smiles

Expert Training

Dr. Dietrich is an orthodontist. Orthodontists are dentists first. Out of 100 dental school graduates, on average, only six go on to become orthodontists.

To practice orthodontics, Dr. Dietrich spent 10 years in training (four years of college, four years of dental school, and two years of orthodontics residency).

The orthodontic student spends three years learning the skills needed to manage tooth movement and guide facial development.

You want an expert like Dr. Dietrich to give you a new smile—not from aligners you order through the internet.

Dr. Joe Dietrich was guided by his father, who started our practice 40 years ago. You’ll get the same comfortable treatment and confident smile we’re known for!


Personal Service

From the moment you contact our office to your final retainer check appointment, we want you to feel comfortable and satisfied with your experience.

Dr. Dietrich will review your photos and X-rays to find the best way to treat your individual needs.

Then you’ll choose the type of braces you want—Damon metal or clear braces.

Our goal at Dietrich Orthodontics is not just to give you the smile of your dreams. We want you to leave our office after every appointment knowing that you got the best possible care.

Comfortable Treatments

Gone are the days of painful headgear, clunky bands on every tooth, and overly tight stainless steel wires. Today's orthodontic treatment is much more comfortable than it used to be. This is because of shape-memory NiTi wires.

With the same technology that NASA uses, NiTi wires exert a continuous force against the teeth to move them in the right direction. This gets rid of the need for wire tightening. This means you spend less time in braces, and the time you do spend is more comfortable.

At Dietrich Orthodontics, we take pride in making the process of straightening your teeth as comfortable as possible.


Modern Techniques

Dr. Dietrich is up-to-date on the latest in orthodontic treatment and braces technology.

Dietrich Orthodontics is your Alliance and Canton location for modern orthodontic treatment.

We take digital X-rays that are immediately saved in your electronic health record. Dr. Dietrich can quickly and easily see your films during your free consultation or while making small orthodontic adjustments after braces are placed.


Text Message Reminders

Would you like to be reminded of your appointments via a text message? An Email? Or Phone call? Or how about all three? Our software makes it easy. You can choose one method, two methods, or all three.

And if one method isn’t working for you, we can easily switch to another reminder type.

We use the “Orthodontext” system to send you customized treatment reminders. You (or your child!) can receive text reminders to wear elastics (rubber bands), brush teeth, wear appliances, etc.

They are completely customizable to as many or as few as you want. Also, you can reply to the text messages, and it goes directly to our front staff.

You can ask how to wear the elastics, to mail you new elastics, or for brushing tips.


Flexible Payments

Everyone loves medical offices that offer flexible appointments and flexible treatment options, but we also offer flexible payment options.

After we’ve estimated your insurance benefits with your insurance company, we will sit down and come up with a monthly payment plan that fits your family’s budget.

You can also get a discount if you pay in full on the front end.


Paperless Forms & Record Keeping

We’re paperless! When you call our office, see us for a quick visit, or even get new photos taken at our office, we have your information ready at our fingertips immediately. But don’t worry, it’s all securely stored with the safest technology available.

To be environmentally friendly and as efficient as possible for you, we also offer electronic new patient paperwork! It’s HIPAA-compliant and safe.

When you call for a new appointment, we’ll send you a quick link to get all your info, and it securely sends back to us. No printing or signing on your part! Quick and convenient from any device.


Convenient Locations

We have two offices to better serve the Stark County area better. Our Alliance office is in the northeast corner of Stark County.

Our Canton office is conveniently near the I-77 and OH-687 interchange, so you can access quality orthodontic care from anywhere in Canton.

The orthodontic treatment process involves a series of orthodontic visits.

Once you feel like we've answered all of your questions and concerns, you can start your treatment that same day.

We value your time, and we know you want to make the most of your visit.
