I can't say enough good things about Dr. Southworth and his entire staff! My two daughters needed a LOT of dental re-alignment, including headgear and recommendations for extractions and periodontal work. Dr. Southworth was one hundred percent up-front, realistic and supportive through all six years of work! He has such a caring approach with his patients, always putting them at ease with a genuine spirit, and patient, understandable explanations of all treatments and plans. I highly recommend Dr. Southworth and his caring staff for any orthodontic needs.

Search no further, you are fortunate to have found an orthodontist who will give it to you straight( pun intended).
Whatever your needs or goals for your child, Dr. Southworth can assist you in understanding all of your options- including the option to not get braces! He is not a salesperson but an extremely well educated and experienced Orthodontist who will offer you and your child a caring and well supported consultation. His inclusion of your child in this process is perfection.
If you do proceed with braces, a kind and supportive team will make the entire process a walk in the park. I had two children who had very different needs. Both had incredible outcomes.
In terms of value, his pricing cannot be beat. There is a well detailed, comprehensive arrangement laid out before services even begin- this means NO SURPRISES! Payment was easy with an extremely reasonable payment plan.
Having his office so convenient is vital for ongoing care and his team makes it incredibly easy to schedule, interface with your regular dentist, and manage all the intricacies of any insurance you may have. They are a pleasure to deal with and I can honestly say after dealing with them for many years, every interaction was a joy.
Choosing the right fit for your orthodontist is critical and we are so blessed to have Dr. Southworth in our area. Some of my friends were not as fortunate and in the end paid more in time, money and stress across the board.
If you are able to utilize his services, you will be more than pleased with both the process and the outcome!

My two daughters are patients of Dr. Southworth and I would without reservation recommend his orthodontic practice and expertise. He and his staff are an absolute pleasure to work with. The office makes it their mission to run on time without anyone in the waiting room even noticing. All aspects of working with them come with ease. The rapport and relationship that Dr. Southworth builds with his patients is above and beyond. Many of his patients are in adolescence and like my daughters, may be apprehensive about the process and the extensive time commitment to braces. The trust he develops and confidence he instills among his patients sets him apart from the rest. We appreciate having his practice in Sterling and are forever grateful for the beautiful smiles that result from the commitment, but even more, the confidence within that evokes from those smiles.

As a dental hygienist, I know the difference between a good orthodontist and a GREAT orthodontist. I hear lots of complaints from my patients about other orthodontists such as " They keep us waiting forever".
In Dr. Southworth's office, my son was never left waiting more than a few minutes. I hear "I met the doctor at the initial consult and then never saw him again". Dr. Southworth came out to talk to me after every one of my son's visits to discuss how things were progressing. I hear " The staff is not that friendly". In Dr. Southworth's office we were greeted with a smile and a hello at every visit by the front desk and the assistants always put my nervous son at ease. They seemed to know every patient and parent by site and were always super friendly and sweet. My son always came out out of his appointments smiling and happy. His treatment went just as expected as was laid out on the first visit. My family and I could not be any more pleased with the treatment he received and his now beautiful smile.

Both of my children needed orthodontic care, and I had been referred to Dr. Southworth by another Sterling resident. From the first consult until the final appointment, every staff member treated us professionally AND personally. Dr. Southworth is not only an experienced and dedicated orthodontist, but his "bedside " manner is that of someone who genuinely cares about his patients and the parents who bring many of the patients in. The office is bright, cheery and clean, and I would absolutely recommend his practice to anyone looking to get orthodontic work done.

My children and I have been patients of Dr. William Southworth for many years. Upon our initial visits, Dr. Southworth provided a thoughtful consultation, established a clear treatment plan and discussed various payment options to meet our family budget. There were no surprises or hidden costs. Dr. Southworth is professional, kind and makes you feel at ease. He and his friendly office staff provide convenient scheduling, both before and after school, which makes getting to those monthly appointments easier. We couldn't be happier with the process and the results. Thanks for our beautiful smiles!

As a mother and daughter, with very different orthodontic situations, Dr. Southworth was exactly who we needed.
From initial consultation to removal day everything was concisely explained prior to treatment and at every appointment. The close contact between our family dentist and Dr. Southworth was ongoing and appreciated. Dr. Soutworth and his staff are knowledgeable,friendly, accommodating and professional, while at the same time making you feel like part of a family.

Dr. Southworth and his staff were terrific during my daughter's five years of braces! Her confident and beautiful smile was well worth the investment, and her first day of high school with no braces was priceless! More importantly, I appreciated the friendly and personal interest and connection that Dr. Southworth and his staff make to their patients and families.
