Dr. Ward's bio

This content was provided by Dr. Ward "Dr. Ward, a lifelong resident of Cleveland, received his undergraduate degree from John Carroll University. He then attended Case Western Reserve University School of Dentistry graduating at the top of his class. Upon graduation, he was invited to attend graduate school at the world leading Department of Orthodontics at Case Western Reserve University. He has published numerous articles in the leading orthodontic literature as well as lecturing both nationally and internationally. His passion for orthodontics led him to membership in the renowned Charles H. Tweed International Foundation, where he has been an instructor for over twenty years. Each year, Dr. Ward spends two weeks teaching residents the art and science of orthodontics. In addition to his practice, Dr. Ward also serves as a clinical instructor in the Case Western Reserve University's orthodontic department. Dr. Ward was one of the first Board Certified orthodontists on the west side of Cleveland and in 2005 he voluntarily sought re-certification. As a nominee for Director of the American Board of Orthodontics, Dr. Ward continues to practice at the highest level, delivering a quality of care that is unsurpassed. In addition to the Charles Tweed Foundation, Dr. Ward is a member of numerous orthodontic and dental societies requiring yearly peer review of treated cases. For over twenty years Dr. Ward presented treated orthodontic cases at yearly meetings and received the highest marks awarded. Several of his patients have graced the cover of the American Journal of Orthodontics and Dentofacial Orthopedics. These covers are proudly displayed on the wall in our office. Dr. Ward's main area of focus is on diagnosis. Developing the correct treatment plan, based on each individuals needs, is a benchmark of his practice. No two people are alike, therefore each orthodontic treatment is unique to that individual. Long term aesthetics, stability, and function are mainstays in his practice and have been since he began his practice. He and his wife, Meigan, live in Avon Lake and enjoy the beauty and recreational opportunities the north coast has to offer. They are both committed to family and a life of service before self."

Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Ward "Ward Orthodontics, prides itself in specialized treatment.  We at Ward Orthodontics believe that each of our patients is unique. When one sees someone in braces, one might think: "Braces are braces are braces"!   This is NOT true.  Treatment provided by Drs. Dennis and Kevin Ward is completely individualized for each of our patients. Just like no two people on this planet are alike, no two treatment plans are alike.  This is how our practice differs from most orthodontists.  Each procedure that this office performs is unique to you, from the initial diagnosis, to the final result; no treatment is ever "pre-manufactured".  Developing the correct treatment plan, based on an individual's needs, is Drs. Dennis and Kevin Ward's benchmark.

We appreciate your confidence in our office and we promise to provide the very best treatment we can. This treatment will be unique to you…..our patient!"
