Dr. James J. Awbrey, an Atlanta native, is passionate about creating healthy smiles and being a part of bettering the lives of his patients.
“Most of all, I love watching a happy patient light up with a beautiful smile we have created. There is nothing more gratifying and that’s a reward I have never taken for granted.”
Dr. Awbrey attended Auburn University as an undergraduate. He then attended the University of Alabama School of Medicine for a year but transferred to the UAB School of Dentistry a year later, as he was inspired by his father, a pediatric dentist. He earned his doctorate degree and went on to complete his orthodontic residency at the Louisiana State University School of Dentistry and received his specialty degree.
Dr. Awbrey is a member of the American Association of Orthodontics, American Dental Association, and Southern Association of Orthodontics, among other organizations.
Dr. Awbrey is simply amazing. The staff is so polite and super friendly. They make you feel right at home. I am so happy with the results of my daughter braces. He is excellent with children and he made the process so easy and simple for my daughter. The staff is organized and everything flows very smoothly.

I cannot rave enough about Dr. Awbrey and his team! I got my braces on in 6th grade by Dr. Awbrey (and I'm now 31). I have a permanent retainer on the lower arch done by Dr. Awbrey, and it is still in and has never come out or gotten loose. So of course, now that my son is ready for braces, Dr. Awbrey is the only one to choose.I've worked in dentistry/ortho for 13 years, and I can confidently say this office, and this team - they just get it!Sheila, who worked in the office when I had braces, is so nice and has such a calm and welcoming demeanor. She makes check-in and check-out flow smoothly. Lydia, the employee who took the X-Rays and pictures, came out to introduce herself and she was so friendly and nice. Kayla, the treatment coordinator, explained everything so thoroughly and even made conversation with my son, which made him feel comfortable and put him at ease. Kayla has her own office line, so when I needed to get in touch with her prior to my son's next appointment, I was able to reach her without being transferred or holding. Brittany, is one of the orthodontic assistants, and she is so sweet! Lastly, Jacqui is also a familiar face (from when I had braces). You definitely know you've stepped into a good practice when some of the staff has been there for 20+ years. Everyone is very pleasant and they are always wearing a smile.A great bonus feature is the coffee bar and the massage chairs!! I would highly recommend this orthodontic team!

Dr. Awbrey and his staff are excellent. I am a dental hygienist, and chose him by seeing my patient's orthodontics and end results for years before I even had my own children. :) His cement is always neat and tidy, and he places his brackets perfectly. He is such a perfectionist, which I really appreciate. My daughter got her braces taken off yesterday, and she looks beautiful. And even more importantly, her bite and jaw function are perfect! Thank you, Dr. Awbrey!!!

Great service! My daughter had a problem with the loose poking wire that could not wait until Monday, I called even though they were closed yet they still met me at the office and replaced her wire on a Saturday morning. Very happy with customer service and how quickly got resolved.
