Orthodontics is a combination of art and science

Griffin Orthodontics - Dr. David J. Griffin



Dr. David J. Griffin enjoys all aspects of orthodontics: the challenges and rewards, and the friendships he builds with his patients that last long after each treatment is complete. Orthodontics is a combination of art and science, and combined with Dr. Griffin’s close attention to detail and never-ending commitment to his patients, your treatment is meant to be a memorable experience.


My Philosophy

Every child deserves the opportunity to have a smile they can be confident with. That is why I became an orthodontist. With the advantages of technology, we can now make it more comfortable and make treatment more efficient. It is my hope that each patient gets the best results and experience. My staff and I make it fun! We love what we do, we make smiles!  Because an awesome smile matters!

I was born and raised in Milwaukee. I am a father of three daughters and have many pets! In my free time I like to spend time with my family, work in my yard and Fish. I am hoping to get in some fly fishing trip this summer.  In better weather, I love to ride my motorcycle both to work and on curvy country back roads.

Education and a commitment to continuing education

The long road to becoming an orthodontist started in the Elmbrook school system, then transitioned to the University of Wisconsin system. Eventually, Dr. Griffin concluded his pathway to orthodontics at the UNIVERSITY OF MINNESOTA SCHOOL OF DENTISTRY.

Dr. Griffin received his Doctorate of Dental Surgery from the University of Minnesota in 1990, where he also completed his orthodontic residency and received his orthodontic certificate and Master of Science in 1993.
