Have questions about your child’s smile? Dr. John has children aged 7 to 10 years, the time when orthodontic checkups should begin. Dr. John recommends the same treatment whether the patient is your child or his own. Although most kids don’t need early treatment, for those that do the benefits are significant.

He is very passionate about the power orthodontic treatment can have to positively transform lives, and is proud to be named the first and only Invisalign Elite provider in North Dakota. Combined with Dr. Warford, they have over 50 years of orthodontic experience and have been serving Bismarck and the surrounding area for over 40 years!

We are going to begin telling you about our staff a little each week. Up this week, is Karley Wahl!
Daily Job Activities: There is a lot we do in one day, from normal braces to Invisalign. We do a lot with sterilizing and many different things throughout the whole office.
How about life outside of work?: I share my home with a dachshund hound named Libby. My favorite food is strudel with cream and potatoes (it’s a German dish). I like to watch Gray’s Anatomy and listen to country music. In my free time I like to be doing anything outdoors like hunting, fishing or just being out on the lake – either relaxing on the boat or water skiing. In the winter I enjoy snowboarding as well.
What is your favorite part of working at Warford Orthodontics?: I love working here. What makes me tick is just seeing the patients change through treatment. When they come in, you can tell that some of them are really unsure about their smile. Then at the end of treatment they love their new smile and love showing it off. I love just knowing I helped to change that!
Any funny or heart-warming stories to share? I still love the time that Denise lost her glasses and we looked and looked for them and we finally found them, they were on the face of her patient! We all still laugh about that story to this day.
