Meet Our Doctors

doctor-kates

Dr. Dale A. Kates

First of all, I love what I do! My belief in helping my fellow man and a strong belief in family have always been the foundation for most of my decisions. I am competitive but I also know how to lose graciously. I have been married over 15 years and love spending time with my wife, two children and our Great Dane. I have been doing orthodontics for over 20 years and feel that this is the best career a person could ever have. Not only do we help young adults and older adults reach their full potential, we gain some life-long friends along the way.
