Straightening smiles is what we do!

If you are considering aligning your smile or giving the gift of a straight smile to your child, it is essential to see an orthodontist for the following reasons:


  • Orthodontists are specialists in aligning teeth, jaws, and the bite

  • Education and training specific to this area of dentistry 

  • Use of up to date technology and techniques

  • Office dedicated to orthodontic treatment

  • Variety of treatment options and retainers available

Hands shaped as a heart

Our orthodontist in Zionsville, IN takes it above and beyond these reasons.  Dr. Godley embraces modern technology and staying up to date to provide the very best treatment for her patients.  She utilizes a digital scanner, 3D printing, and a low radiation x-ray machine.  Godley Family Orthodontics offers Invisalign clear aligners as well as braces options that can be transparent, custom, or hidden.  We want you to understand your options and enjoy the most convenient, comfortable, and efficient orthodontic experience!


Education + Experience + Skill = Success!

We have all seen ads for do-it-yourself aligners, and some general dentists offer tooth alignment.  With so many options, it can be confusing!


Just as a nice golf club set does not make a great golfer - tools do not create skill.  Orthodontic tools (like braces and Invisalign) do not make an orthodontist.  They team together with education, talent, and experience. 


Tooth movement is complex, and involves a variety of factors to achieve success and keep your teeth healthy.


After becoming a dentist, an orthodontist must complete a 2 to 3 year residency.  That is 3700+ hours of additional accredited training.  Some take it a step further to become Board Certified.
