Orthodontist at Smiles for Maine - Dr. Brian Patterson

Dr. Brian said that he chose orthodontics because it is a unique blend of both art and science, which aligns with his personality.  He also explained that his unwavering commitment and passion for orthodontics stems from his personal experience in orthodontic treatment and the impression that it had in his life – both esthetically and in his self-confidence.  Dr. Brian has said that he “feels blessed to have a job to create smiles that not only look beautiful, but truly have the ability to change someone’s life.”

Among his primary goals of connecting with patients and their families, he takes an active interest in their personal growth and ensures strong communication with the patient’s entire dental team.   Dr. Brian continues our philosophy of providing patients with modern, state-of-the-art orthodontics including Invisalign, 3D imaging, 3D printing, and more!

Outside of orthodontics, Dr. Brian enjoys spending time with his family.  He and his wife Chelsea have four children: Keegan, Everly, Callum, and Cohen.  Dr. Brian is also an avid sports fanatic.  He enjoys winter skiing and snowmobiling, as well as spending time on the lake during the summer.  He just learned to wake surf recently!

Dr. Brian has enjoyed connecting with the patients at Smiles for Maine Orthodontics and looks forward to continuing the exceptional service Dr. Ruff has provided to his patients over the years.
