Dr. Willes' bio

This content was provided by Dr. Willes "Dr. Willes loves being an orthodontist-both for the challenge of achieving perfectly aligned teeth and the awesome interactions he gets to have with wonderful patients, from age 7 to 83! He understands how important straight teeth are to dental heath and positive self-esteem, and he is grateful for the role he gets to play in seeing his patients' lives change. Dr. Willes grew up in Fullerton, where he excelled in baseball and football. He also played baseball at BYU, where he was a two-time All-American and led the nation in home runs. He graduated from UMKC dental school with honors, and received his orthodontic training at UCLA, where he put braces on himself to know what it felt like since he had never needed them as a kid. Dr. Willes enjoys being with his family, surfing, wakeboarding, riding motorcycles, camping, running (including three marathons), and playing guitar in a rock band. And his latest favorite thing is being a grandpa! His professional affiliations include: ABO, AAO, PCSO, SDAO, ADA, and CDA."
