We’re not just a leading Richmond Invisalign provider at Gardner & La Rochelle Orthodontics, we’re among the top providers in the entire nation! In fact, Dr. Gardner teaches for the Invisalign Masters Program and lectures on the treatment internationally. We’ve helped thousands of patients achieve their dream smiles with the revolutionary system of clear aligners. There are a number of key benefits of Invisalign:

Virtually Invisible

The aligners are made from smooth, clear plastic. No one will be able to tell you’re straightening your teeth.


Thanks to our expertise and computerized treatment planning, you’ll get amazing results, even if you have a complex case.


You’ll take the aligners out to eat and brush and floss your teeth. That means no food restrictions and oral hygiene is a breeze.


We can treat almost any patient with clear aligners. However, if you don’t love your new smile, you can switch to braces at no charge.

What Our

Patients Are Saying

The staff is always helpful and knowledgeable and the techs are prompt and thorough. With my two girls almost finished with their treatments, I’m ready to go back for braces myself!

Jennifer J.

Hands down the best! Not only is he super understanding and personable and fun he’s also an amazing orthodontist who has been treating my daughter since she was seven. My daughter is an extremely complicated case and he’s one of the only orthodontist in the area that can handle it. Number 1, 100% recommend!

Kelly F.

Amazing experience from day 1.
Everyone is super friendly and they make sure your experience is the best in every appointment.
The doctor is very nice and he makes sure you understand everything. Overall I am really happy I decided to do my braces here. I can not wait for the end results. I recommend Dr. Gardner and this office 100%.

Jira Z

I highly recommend this practice. As an adult considering correcting my teeth, I knew I wanted something discreet. For years I had heard the cute--but sometimes frustrating--comments like "Señor Bishop, you got Vampire teeth!" from my lovely and well-meaning young students, and they were right! Dr. Gardner and his staff were able to help me finally fix that over the course of 18 months of Invisalign treatments. Not only is he a doctor of the highest quality and bedside manner, but all of his colleagues are the most pleasant people you'd ever hope to meet. I can honestly say I looked forward to visiting my Orthodontist, and I think that says a lot about the environment Dr. G has created.

Tommy B.

Love the practice! Fun filled and very patient group of medical professionals. Laid back attire with a very comforting and yet spunky atmosphere. They answer every question and concern. I have been seeing the office for all my kids and have never had a bad experience.

Erika D.

Fantastic! Dr. Gardner and his crew are caring with your kids and make getting braces super fun! Also very friendly and helpful to the parents. They explain their plans very thoroughly, do their work calmly and carefully, and the atmosphere happy and comfortable. Can't say enough about them...we look forward to our appointments!
