About Orthologie Orthodontics

WHAT WE BELIEVE

Here at Orthologie Orthodontics, we believe that everyone deserves to have a smile that they love. Up to 70% of Canadians could benefit from orthodontic treatment but less than 2% receive treatment each year. We designed a new kind of orthodontic office to make Invisalign treatment convenient, affordable, and fun! This Invisalign experience is what we would want as patients and we think you’ll love it too.

Beautiful Results

First and foremost, our goal is to help you achieve your dream smile. We combine the latest technology with the expertise of an orthodontic specialist to get you the results you want. Trust your Invisalign treatment to the experts.

Convenient

We want to change what you think of the dentist’s office. No more long waits in the waiting room, unanswered phone calls, and loads of paperwork. We streamlined the entire process to save you time every step of the way.

Affordable

Finances shouldn’t stand in the way of achieving the smile you want. Not only do we offer affordable Invisalign treatment for thousands of dollars less than other Invisalign providers, but also we accept most dental insurances and offer flexible monthly payment options.

Dr. Derek Hou, DMD, MSD

Certified Specialist in Orthodontics

During my time in practice, I’ve seen hundreds of hours spent in the waiting room and thousands more hours of missed school, work, social obligations, sports games, and more, as patients rearrange their lives to fit into an office’s busy schedule. I wanted to create a new kind of orthodontic office where the opposite is true: we fit our treatment into our patients’ lives, letting them enjoy all of life’s big moments without any interruption. We believe in prioritizing our patient’s smile and our patient’s time.
