Why Choose Us

What Makes Us Different?

Choosing an orthodontist can be tricky! At Donaldson 3D Orthodontics, we don’t think it has to be, especially with all of the amazing solutions available at our New Iberia and Broussard offices. We’re confident that our combination of great staff, advanced technology, and amazing results will be exactly what you’re looking for.

Great Staff

When it comes to interacting with patients, our philosophy can be boiled down to one question: How can we make your visit great? That’s what we all have in mind during each interaction with you and your family, and we strive to make your experience the best it can be.

It’s important that you feel safe and comfortable with any medical practitioner, especially your orthodontist! Dr. Buddy has made it his personal mission to only hire staff that he’s confident will contribute to great patient experiences. Each one of us is dedicated to fulfilling Dr. Buddy’s dreams of orthodontic experiences that will truly put a smile on your face!

Dr. Buddy himself will even call our new patients the night before their appointment to be sure that we can meet all of their needs! Personal touches like that mean you know you’ve found the right place for your orthodontic care!

Advanced Technology

Our office has been at the leading edge of orthodontic technology for years. We offer incredible 3D imaging technology using our cone beam scanners, digital 3D teeth impressions, and virtual treatment planning, all which combine into crystal-clear models that you can see in real time – you’ll be amazed at the detail of our 3D imaging tools! You’ll have a hard time finding this amazing combination of tools elsewhere in our area!

We also use intraoral cameras to take pictures of your mouth where it’s hard to normally see. This allows us to be sure that we’re treating you exactly where it’s needed, and it also gives us a lasting photographic record of your teeth.

Our braces use high-tech wires that are more comfortable, and we can also offer Invisalign! For patients with sleep apnea, we offer the advanced Moses appliance: a comfortable and well-tested way to help you sleep better at night!

Amazing Results

All the technology and education in the world doesn’t mean much if we don’t produce amazing results for each and every patient we see, and we’re confident that we do! We’ve created countless perfect smiles over the years, several of which have been on the cover of the American Journal of Orthodontics and Dentofacial Orthopedics – a rare feat for any practice!

Dr. Buddy is also the only dual-certified pediatric dentist and orthodontist in the area, so you know that your children are in great hands! The quality of our results combined with advanced techniques and technology harmonize to give you results you’ll be amazed at. We’re sure we can exceed all of your expectations!
