You’ll enjoy efficient treatment plans, using the latest advancements in dental technology in order to straighten your teeth. You’ll have a smile you can be proud of!

Expert Orthodontic Training

Dr. Thomas Gardner is an orthodontist. Orthodontists are dentists first. Out of 100 dental school graduates, on average, only six go on to become orthodontists.

To practice orthodontics, Dr. Gardner spent 11 years in training (four years of college, four years of dental school, and three years of orthodontics residency).

The orthodontic student spends three years learning the skills needed to manage tooth movement and to guide facial development.

Dr. Gardner is an active member of the American Dental Association, Florida Dental Association, and the American Association of Orthodontics.

He attends many hours of continuing education each year to make certain he is providing the latest and best care for you and your family. You want an expert to give you a new smile—not from aligners you get in the mail.

Personal Service

From the moment you contact our Orange Park office to your final retainer check appointment, our goal at Gardner Orthodontics is your complete satisfaction.

Dr. Gardner will review your photos and X-rays to find the best way to treat your individual needs. Then you’ll choose the type of braces you want—traditional metal or gold, clear ceramic, or clear aligners.

Our goal at Gardner Orthodontics is not just to give you the smile of your dreams. We want you to leave our office after every appointment knowing that you got the best possible care.

Comfortable Treatments

Gone are the days of painful headgear, clunky bands on every tooth, and overly tight stainless steel wires. Today's orthodontic treatment is much more comfortable than it used to be. This is because of shape-memory NiTi wires.

With the same technology that NASA uses, NiTi wires exert a continuous force against the teeth to move them in the right direction. This gets rid of the need for wire tightening. This means you spend less time in braces, and the time you do spend is more comfortable.

At Gardner Orthodontics, we take pride in making the process of straightening your teeth as comfortable as possible.


Modern Techniques

Dr. Gardner is up-to-date on the latest in orthodontic treatment and braces technology. Gardner Orthodontics is your Orange Park location for modern orthodontic treatment.

We offer aesthetic options like ceramic braces and clear aligners for faster and more efficient tooth movement and faster treatment times.

Flexible Payments

Everyone loves medical offices that offer flexible appointments and flexible treatment options, but we also offer flexible payment options.

After we’ve determined your insurance coverage and filed it for you, we'll sit down and come up with a monthly payment plan that fits your family’s budget. You can even get a discount if you pay in full on the front end.


Convenient Location

Our Orange Park office is easy to reach so you’ll never be late to return to school or work. This means a trip to your orthodontist can fit easily into your busy schedule!

We’re located in Phase 1 of Oakleaf Plantation Crossroads on Oakleaf Village Pkwy and Oakside Dr. (next to AR Workshop and Roderick's Family Martial Arts).
