Meet Dr. Brad

Brad WoodfordDr. Brad has been around orthodontics his entire life as a second generation orthodontist. He also was a horrible orthodontic patient, having had braces 4 different times. “I was not very good at wearing my retainer, but being a bad patient makes me a much better doctor.”

Ohio State where Dr. Brad was born is also where he spent 7 years obtaining his DDS and MS in Orthodontics. “I guess that makes me a true Buckeye, but I also spent several great years in Southern California at Biola University and Cal State Fullerton.” This is where he received his bachelor’s degree and master’s degree in marriage and family counseling. “I guess I have covered coast to coast in one way or the other. Many great experiences with a lot a really interesting and fun people.”

A member of American Association of Orthodontists, Maine Dental Association, American Academy of Dental Sleep Medicine, Dr. Brad stays current on the latest in orthodontic and dental procedures.

What makes Dr. Brad unique, different? “I have a tremendous passion for what I do, I love it. The ability to give someone an amazing smile which I know will transform their personality into someone amazing is absolutely the greatest gift in the world. Having fun doing this is also a blast, so that’s how the crazy shoes and socks started, never matching and always fun. If you love what you do and have fun doing it you’ll never work a day in your life, so I have heard and it’s true for me. I am also fortunate to have great dental professionals here in Maine to work with and help them give their patients a great smile.”

Dr. Brad grew up and practiced orthodontics for over ten years in Arizona before moving to Maine. “I get asked all the time, why did you come this way, most of us Mainah’s want to go out West. We were looking for a change and new opportunity and simply fell in love with Maine. You may be tired of the cold at times, but we got tired of the heat.” Bangor Braces was started by Dr. Frank Gilley in the 1940’s and was continued by Dr. Lee Souweine before Dr. Brad took over in 2013.
