Policies & Mission

Doctor Smiles Orthodontics is a family practice made up of skilled, experienced, and caring individuals who come together with the common goal of providing the best orthodontic treatment in the Tucson, AZ area.

Dr. Marisela Bedoya and her talented staff want to help you achieve your best smile possible, so we offer the latest in orthodontic care for kids, teens, and adults. Though we are located in Tucson, we serve patients from many surrounding communities, offering a wide range of orthodontic services from innovative Invisalign to traditional braces, and more! No matter what orthodontics route you pursue, you can always expect to be treated compassionately with a service customized to meet your needs.

Our Mission

We want our patients to feel confident and proud when they smile, so we work with each one individually to find the best treatment to get the best result for their smile. Our staff is professional, caring, and well trained. We are committed to providing beautiful, healthy smiles in a fun-filled and relaxed office environment.

Patient Cooperation Policy

Orthodontic treatment starts at Doctor Smiles Orthodontics but must continue once you leave our Tucson office. Successful orthodontics involve patients cooperating with the following responsibilities:

  • Keeping appointments as scheduled
  • Wearing appliances as requested
  • Proper oral hygiene
  • Dietary control
  • Only with a combined doctor-patient effort can we achieve the best result.


We know your time is valuable and we make every effort to remain on schedule in order to best serve all our patients. As such, we reserve your appointment specifically for you and ask that you arrive on time. Should you need to reschedule, we request 24-hour advanced notice.


We work with our patients to maximize their insurance benefits for orthodontics, but as policies vary, we can only provide an estimate of your coverage. The patient portion is due at the time of service and to make the process as easy as possible, we bill the insurance company.
