D.D.S., M.S., P.C.

Dr. Bolin’s orthodontic journey began in this very office when he was a patient of Dr. Sanford’s almost 20 years ago! Seeing firsthand how profoundly Dr. Sanford enjoyed helping his patients achieve their orthodontic goals left a lasting impression on a young Dr. Bolin.

He grew up in Weston attending the local schools K-12 and did his best as a mediocre pitcher for the high school baseball team. After accepting that the Yankees would probably be fine without him, Dr. Bolin continued his academic journey at Emory University. He graduated with a B.S. degree in chemistry while being inducted into the Phi Beta Kappa Society, a distinction awarded to a small group of students attaining the highest levels of academic achievement.

Dr. Bolin returned to the northeast for dental school, graduating from Columbia University with a DDS degree. He was inducted into the prestigious dental honor society, Omicron Kappa Upsilon, for outstanding scholarship and received the Alpha Omega International Dental Fraternity Award which is given to the top student in the graduating class.

Dr. Bolin then had the privilege of continuing at Columbia University for his orthodontic residency where he received extensive training in the use of both braces and Invisalign for treating cases of all types and complexities. Additionally, he was awarded a Master of Science degree for his research and received the Cangialosi Award for clinical excellence.

Upon graduation, Dr. Bolin was offered a part-time clinical faculty position in Columbia University’s orthodontic clinic and now spends every Friday teaching residents while staying apprised of the latest developments in orthodontics.

Dr. Bolin reconnected with Dr. Sanford while he was still in residency, and he could not be more grateful and excited to be working with the doctor that sparked his journey!

What is a Board Certified Orthodontist?

An orthodontist is a dentist who has not only completed a graduate program in dentistry to receive their DDS or DMD (Doctor of Dental Surgery or Doctor of Dental Medicine), but has also gone through a competitive residency at a CODA-accredited orthodontic program for an additional 2-3 years to be trained specifically in orthodontics and dentofacial orthopedics.

ABO Board Certification is a voluntary credential that represents an orthodontist’s personal and public commitment to the standards of specialty practice and lifelong learning. The ABO Certification process requires the completion of peer-developed, externally validated written and clinical examinations.  A Board Certified Orthodontist has reached this distinct level of achievement that goes beyond state required licensure, includes additional education and ongoing assessment, and indicates that an orthodontic specialist is upholding the standards of the credential.

Board Certification is confirmation of an orthodontist’s personal commitment to providing lifelong quality patient care. The American Board of Orthodontics is the only orthodontic specialty board recognized by the American Dental Association and in affiliation with the American Association of Orthodontists
