Introducing Dr. Brian Patterson!

Dear Patients and Parents,

I am delighted to announce the addition of my partner, Dr. Brian Patterson, to the Smiles for Maine Orthodontics team. He will support our continued efforts to enhance our patients’ experience, while maintaining a tradition of superior orthodontic care in all the communities.

We hope that your experience at Smiles for Maine Orthodontics reflects our goal of delivering the highest standard of care in a friendly, but also technology-forward and efficient environment. Above all, we’re always focused on creating smiles that build self-esteem and confidence. To that end we’re grateful to have Dr. Brian joining our team as his personality and philosophy align perfectly with our own. Dr. Brian will continue our philosophy of providing patients with modern, state-of-the-art orthodontics including, but not limited to, Invisalign, 3D imaging and sleep issues.

Dr. Brian told me 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.”

Outside of orthodontics, Dr. Brian enjoys spending time with his family.  He and his wife, Chelsea, have three children: Keegan (5), Everly (3), and Callum (1).  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 this year!

With the addition of Dr. Brian we can do more together to serve you, our patients, who we know will enjoy getting to know him!  We look forward to introducing you soon!

Kind regards,

Dr. Charlie Ruff and the Smiles for Maine Orthodontics team
