Stephen W. Andrews

DMD, MS

Dr. Andrews has been practicing orthodontics for twenty five years. Dr. Andrews received his Bachelor’s degree from Georgia Tech and then went on to receive his Doctorate in Dental Medicine from The Medical College of Georgia (1982), where he was in the top 10% of his class.

He received his Master’s degree in Orthodontics from the University of North Carolina in 1989. He had assignments in England, Alaska, and the U.S. Air Force Academy, retiring as a full colonel after serving 26 years. Dr. Andrews became interested in orthodontics as a result of his experience during his general practice Residency experience in the Air Force. This experience helped him realize the importance of a beautiful smile and how it affects a person’s self-esteem.

Dr. Andrews and his wife, Julie, have three daughters ~ Marie and granddaughter Layla, who live in Denver; Shannon, who lives in Denver; and Kylie, who is in high school; as well as one son, Josh, Kailyn and grandson Orlen, who reside in Colorado Springs.

Dr. Andrews was certified as a Diplomate of The American Board of Orthodontics (ABO) in February 1995. The American Board of Orthodontics is the only certifying organization for the specialty of orthodontics that is recognized by the American Dental Association and sponsored by the American Association of Orthodontists. The American Board of Orthodontics was established in 1929 and was the third certifying board in the health professions and the first in dentistry.

Board certification is an elective process and not every orthodontist undertakes this rigorous, lengthy and ongoing examination process. It is intended to provide assurance to the public that an orthodontic specialist has successfully completed an approved educational program and an evaluation process which includes an examination designed to assess the knowledge, skills and clinical expertise required to provide quality patient care. Completion of this process is an indication of an orthodontist’s commitment to establish and maintain the highest standards of clinical excellence in orthodontics.
