The Georgia School of Orthodontics (GSO) has started construction of a 9,000 square foot office in Gwinnett County, which will double its orthodontic service capacity for metro Atlanta residents. This new location is the second of several Georgia School of Orthodontics that are planned to open in underserved areas throughout the metro Atlanta area.
Located in the Gwinnett Commerce Center in Duluth, the new campus expands GSO’s advanced specialty education program in orthodontics and dentofacial orthopedics to dentists and offers state-of-the-art orthodontic services to the community in the GSO clinic. A groundbreaking ceremony is set to take place on April 19.
When GSO opened its flagship campus in the spring of 2016 in Atlanta, it pledged to provide $100k of complimentary orthodontic care to deserving youth in Georgia. As part of the school’s commitment to fulfill this promise and to celebrate the ground breaking of the new facility in Gwinnett County, GSO will offer complimentary orthodontic care to three deserving children in the Atlanta area.
“We recognize that children, teens and adults have very different needs, and require a different level of attention and care to create a beautiful, healthy smile,” says Dr. Ricky E. Harrell, Program Director at the Georgia School of Orthodontics. “The advanced technology in our state-of-the-art clinics allows us to offer patients of all ages access to braces, Invisalign and other orthodontic treatments. The Georgia School of Orthodontics’ Duluth location will offer all of these services at affordable prices to Gwinnett and surrounding residents.”
“The Georgia School of Orthodontics will be a great addition to the Gwinnett community,” said Gwinnett County Board of Commissioners Chairman Charlotte Nash. “Their presence in Gwinnett will address a critical need for affordable orthodontic care and provide access to these services to underserved populations.”
