Dr. Paul R White, DDS, has over twenty-five years of orthodontic experience based out of Richmond, Virginia. He is the go-to specialist for patients suffering from TMJ dysfunction and headaches, and has successfully helped over ten thousand people get the beautiful smile they’ve always wanted.

Dr. White is one of those rare people that knows exactly how to make everyone feel welcome and appreciated. It’s probably because he spends every day focused on making people smile. From the moment you meet him, his passion for creating beautiful smiles and healthy bites is clear. In fact, he is known for investing a lot of time with each patient, and along with his team, has the ability to make each patient feel like they’re the only one.

He earned his dental degree from the Medical College of Virginia and his orthodontic certificate from Emory University. Then, after nine years of higher education, completed an additional two-year program at the prestigious Roth/Williams Center for Functional Occlusion. This additional two-years of training, which focused on jaw position and TMJ disorders, is one of the reasons his approach to orthodontics is more holistic and his results are so special.
