Stephen W. Bradford, D.M.D.


At Orthodontics by Bradford, we believe everyone deserves the confidence, joy, and quality of life that comes with a healthy, beautiful smile. We believe every face is unique and that our job is to enhance whatever makes you special by making it the best it can be. We think a smile can literally change a life-and we’ve had the privilege of helping that happen over and over again. Our team of professionals will make you feel comfortable and confident in our state-of-the-art practice facilities. Our practice has invested in the latest in accelerated orthodontic treatments, low dose x-ray machines, 3D technology, simple unobtrusive appliance therapies, Itero digital scanning technology (impressions not required), and modern communication with patients and referring doctors. Stephen Bradford is one of the country’s most respected orthodontists and serves on many local and national organizations. He and the team at Orthodontics by Bradford have been changing lives by creating exceptional smiles in Palm Beach Gardens, Jensen Beach, and the areas surrounding Palm Beach County for more than two generations—and they’re just getting warmed up. You can feel the energy when you visit our offices. If you’re already a member of our family of patients you know that.

Dr. Bradford received his DMD degree from The University of Alabama School of Dentistry and Specialty Certificate in Orthodontics from Louisiana State University. He is a Diplomate of the American Board of Orthodontics. He participates in continuing education year-round and continues to improve with advances in orthodontic and orthopedic treatment with braces or plastic products like Invisalign. He also has an impeccable reputation in the community. He treats many local dentists’ families and supports many local schools and sports teams. Not only is he an expert with the simplest of orthodontic cases, but he is sought after for the most complex, too. Choosing an experienced and board certified orthodontist to take care of you and your family would allow us to make a difference together. Dr. Bradford was honored as a Top Dentist by his peers and was recently highlighted in Palm Beach Illustrated Magazine.
