Mississippi’s Trusted Orthodontists

You'll be cared for like you're our own family and we promise to give you the best quality care in a comfortable, fun setting.

Drs. Williams and Hamman will give you a unique treatment plan developed just for your smile. This may include traditional metal braces, clear braces, or clear aligners by Invisalign.

When you’re a patient at Williams & Hamman Orthodontics, you can expect a top-notch experience, from your first consultation to your final results.

We want to get to know you and make you feel at home while you’re in our office.

Expert Training

Dr. Richard Williams and Dr. Nathan Hamman are trained orthodontists. Orthodontists are dentists first.

Out of 100 dental school graduates, on average, only six go on to become orthodontists.

To practice orthodontics, our doctors each spent 11 years in training (four years of college, four years of dental school, and three years of orthodontics residency).

The orthodontic student spends three years dedicated to learning the skills needed to manage tooth movement and to guide facial development.

Out of those who go on to practice orthodontics, only about 30% of them are board-certified, an accomplishment achieved by both Dr. Williams and Dr. Hamman.

You want experts like Dr. Williams and Dr. Hamman to create your new smile, not aligners you can order online.

Personal Service

From the moment you contact our office to your final retainer check appointment, our goal at Williams & Hamman Orthodontics is your complete satisfaction.

Dr. Williams and Dr. Hamman will review your photos and X-rays to find the best way to treat your individual needs.

Then you’ll choose the type of braces you want—traditional metal, clear ceramic, or Invisalign. Our goal at Williams & Hamman Orthodontics is not just to give you the smile of your dreams—we want you to leave our office after every appointment knowing that you got the best possible care.

Comfortable Treatments

Gone are the days of painful treatments, clunky bands on every tooth, and overly tight stainless steel wires. Today's orthodontic treatment is much more comfortable than it used to be. This is because of shape-memory NiTi wires.

NiTi wires use the same technology as NASA to exert a continuous force against the teeth to move them in the right direction. This gets rid of the need for wire tightening. This means you spend less time in braces, and the time you do spend is more comfortable.

At Williams & Hamman Orthodontics we take pride in making the process of straightening your teeth as comfortable as possible.

Flexible Payments

Everyone loves medical offices that offer flexible appointments and flexible treatment options, but we also offer flexible payment options.

After we’ve determined your insurance coverage and filed your paperwork for you, we'll sit down and come up with a monthly payment plan that fits your family’s budget.

You can also get a discount if you pay in full on the front end.

Modern Techniques

Dr. Williams and Dr. Hamman stay up-to-date on the latest in orthodontic treatment and braces technology.
