Inside the door at Davies Orthodontics, a small museum displays dentistry tools from throughout the decades. The tools may be intimidating to some patients, but rest assured: the field of dentistry has come a long way since its days of pedal-powered drills.

Kirk Davies began his practice in Waukesha and in Wales in 2000. Since then, the full-service orthodontic clinic has gained recognition for its dedication to the field and its patients, giving the clinic long-standing success.

Davies comes from a line of family dentists that stretches back for four generations. His great-grandfather worked as a dentist in Waukesha in the early 20th century, and his grandmother worked as a dentist just after the Depression. His father followed suit.

Davies said he always knew he would be a dentist.

“I pretty much wanted to be just a dentist,” he said. “I wanted to be like my dad.”

Today, the Davies family legacy lives on. At their newest location in Waukesha, Davies runs his practice alongside other family members. His brother Kent and sister Kristi run Davies General Dentistry and his father Robert, sister Kirsten and sister-in-law Lindsey run Davies Pediatric. The move allows the family to collaborate and serve patients’ needs more easily.

Davies also has a location in Wales. At both locations, Davies said he strives to provide a comfortable and warm practice for his patients.

“People come in and we help people and solve problems,” Davies said. “We’re very interested in our field. I’m a medical professional, so I look at things from a patient-care perspective, as opposed to revenue.”

The new facility and advances in technology has made that easier to do, Davies said.

“Almost everything we do has a different process now,” he said. “Braces can be done with a lot less discomfort and a lot less time. 3D imaging is going to play a role in the future.”

“I would like to continue to do high-quality work, use technology in a way that patients are taken care of,” Davies said. “We are here to make good things happen for other people. That’s our goal.”
