Why Choose Us

Orthodontic Affiliates Is a Special Place – and Here’s Why

Choosing the right orthodontist for you and your family will determine whether your smile is one to show off or one you feel like you need to hide. No one should have to hide their smile. At least, that is what the doctors and staff at Orthodontic Affiliates believe. Helping you and your family fix orthodontic problems is why we are here.

Convenient Locations

At Orthodontic Affiliates, we know that you are busy. There are many other things you need to do, and probably would rather do, than go to the orthodontist’s office. That is why we have seven locations across three counties in northern Indiana. We have offices in Valparaiso, Munster, Portage, Michigan City, St. John, and Lowell to serve both adults and children.

All of our locations offer ample parking. None of our office locations is in a high-rise complex. This helps to make your visit with us as simple as it can be. There is already enough stress on you, and there’s no reason we should add to it.

Highly Experienced, Award-Winning Doctors

There is no substitute for experience, and there is no shortcut to getting it. Our Dr. Surber and Dr. Schmidt have more than 65 years of experience between them. This means that when you come in and need a complicated treatment, we have the knowledge to be able to take care of you. You will know that you are getting top-of-the-line care at Orthodontic Affiliates.

Our practice has been selected three times by Post-Tribune readers as one of the area’s best orthodontic practices. In 2018, we were voted as the No. 1 orthodontic practice in Porter County! In 2019, we received this honor for both Porter and Lake counties!

Ability to Start Patient’s Orthodontic Treatment Same Day

Some practices want you to come in for an initial appointment and then come back to start your treatment. That’s not how Orthodontic Affiliates operates. When you become a patient of ours, we can start your treatment that same day as your first appointment. That means you are are that much closer to the smile you have always wanted.

Affordable Orthodontic Fees – No Hidden Charges

Surprises are cool when it’s your birthday. They aren’t when you are talking about how much your treatment costs. When you become a patient of Orthodontic Affiliates, you can be sure that what we say it is going to cost is going to be what we charge you. There will be no hidden fees. Straight, upfront prices coupled with flexible payment plans make it easier for you to get the care you need.

There are a lot of other reasons our patients choose us, including our state-of-the-art technology, caring staff, and more. To find out what they are, contact us today. You can also use our online form, and we will get back to you as soon as we can.
