What Sets Us Apart

What Sets us Apart?

Wardell Orthodontics is a comprehensive orthodontic practice with a fun, family friendly environment. Our two convenient locations in Glen Ellyn and Hoffman Estates enable us to care for the orthodontic needs for patients of all ages in DuPage and northwest Cook County.  Dr. Wardell provides orthodontic treatment for children and teens as well as adults.  He is skilled in understanding the unique circumstances and dental needs that are associated with adult care and enjoys treating multiple members of a family at the same time.  Our practice’s top priority is to provide the highest quality orthodontic care while utilizing the most up-to-date technology and equipment to all patients. We always strive to utilize the most current systems on the market, which includes state-of-the-art computer software, digital radiographs, advanced intraoral scanners, monitored sterilization systems, and the most patient-friendly orthodontic braces and aligners available.

Professional Training and Experience

Dr. Bruce Wardell is a certified specialist in Orthodontics and dentofacial orthopedics. Unlike most dental specialists who receive their advanced training directly out of dental school, Dr. Wardell practiced as a general dentist for six years before becoming an orthodontist.  His first four years in practice were spent serving as a dental officer in the US Navy caring for the dental needs of active duty personnel as well as veterans. He spent the following two years working as a part time associate in private practice providing cosmetic dentistry doing fillings, crowns and veneers, along with root canals and extractions.  Having this experience in general dentistry gives Dr. Wardell a unique perspective on the overall dental needs of his patients when treatment planning orthodontic cases and working with general dentists in the community.

Customer Service and Fun

Wardell Orthodontics is more than just a place where patients come to get a great looking smile. Our practice is dedicated to helping patients and their families always feel welcome and have fun.  Our friendly team will help explain things to you and answer any questions that you might have from the time of your initial consultation to your last retainer appointment.  We treat our patients like we treat our own family and friends.  We are happy to take extra time to discuss treatment options, financial payment plans, or provide instruction and education on good oral hygiene.  Along with offering excellent customer service, we believe in having fun!  Throughout the course of treatment, patients will be able to participate in multiple in-office and social media contests, learn fun facts and trivia, or enjoy a day at the movies sponsored by our office.  We believe that a smile should last for a lifetime and so should friendships.  Contact one of our two office locations in Glen Ellyn or Hoffman Estates for a free initial consultation and experience what sets us apart!
