Our Story

To understand how Birmingham Orthodontics became what it is today— a multi-doctor practice with 60 employees spread across 4 locations—you have to go back to the beginning.

While serving his country in the United States Army, our founder, Dr. McCarthy, was searching for quality orthodontic treatment for his daughter. To his dismay, he soon discovered that because of high treatment prices and the lack of financial options made available (options like no-down payment, lower monthly payments, and interest-free financing), orthodontic procedures were basically unaffordable to most people on military salaries. It was then that Dr. McCarthy decided to dedicate his life toward opening and managing an orthodontic practice with one simple goal: to make getting a better smile affordable to everyone. Or, in simpler terms—to help his community smile more.

Our mission is simple: create smiles

Our mission has remained unchanged since first opening our doors—to provide affordable orthodontic treatment without ever sacrificing quality. We believe that anyone who comes in—patients and parents—should leave our office with a smile. One visit and you’ll quickly see how serious we are about this mission—working every day to fulfill it through expertise and passion, and doing it all with smiles on our faces too.
