Q: What services do you offer at Hufham Orthodontics?
A: We offer Invisalign treatment for both adults and teenagers, full orthodontic treatment (braces) for more challenging cases and combined orthodontic/surgical treatment for oro-facial discrepancies that braces alone cannot treat to an ideal correction.
We provide specialist care to treat crowded, crooked or spaced teeth. Early treatment for children ages 7-10 can reduce the severity of certain cases as children age and make future orthodontic care much more limited in scope and duration.
Invisalign treatment with clear aligners has opened orthodontics up to a much broader range of people and adults who want straight teeth without the irritation and lack of aesthetics with traditional braces. We pride ourselves on offering a customized treatment plan for each patient.
Q: What’s the benchmark of success at Hufham Orthodontics?
A: We want to treat each patient to the highest standards of orthodontic care and as if they were members of our own family. At Hufham Orthodontics, we strive for the ideal result — both functionally and aesthetically — for our patients in a relaxed and uplifting atmosphere.
Q: Dr. David Hufham, could you share with us one of your success stories?
A: Though we see success stories every day with such great patients, one that particularly stands out is a young lady from an underserved area of Birmingham who we treated on a complimentary basis. She was missing her two front teeth, and we had to work closely with her cosmetic dentist to create adequate space for the replacement teeth.
When all was finished, she was elated with her smile. She sent me her graduation photograph upon accepting her high school diploma, and she was beaming with a beautiful smile. I have that photograph in my office, and I still remain in touch with her today. It is so rewarding to play a small part in improving her self-esteem and other patients’ self-esteem, too.
Q: What’s one of your favorite parts of your work?
A: As I have been in practice for almost 19 years, I have enjoyed beginning to see some children of some of our first patients from years ago. That they would trust us with their children’s care now is really special. I love my job and feel fortunate for it bringing me in touch with so many wonderful people.
Q: We understand 2021 marks a special time at Hufham Orthodontics?
A: This September we will celebrate the 20th anniversary of my practice in Mountain Brook! We are blessed beyond words to be able to live and work in this wonderful community.
I certainly could not have done this without the support of my wife, Joanna, and the best orthodontic staff in the world in Melissa Minor, Macey Smith, Kaley Stennis and Gayle Pilato. All of these women are the driving force of my practice and make my job something I look forward to each and every day!
