Phoenix orthodontist Dr. Dustin Coles

Learn About Dr. Dustin

Arizona Orthodontist, Dr. Dustin R. Coles DDS, MSD

“What makes our practice different is our passion in giving patients an amazing experience and our commitment to do whatever it takes to serve the best interest of our patients and their families…”

Dr. Dustin R. Coles founded Premier Orthodontics in 2006, twelve years after first helping out at his father’s dental office as an orthodontic assistant and dreaming he would one day run his own practice.

Now with seven thriving locations throughout greater Phoenix, Dr. Coles’ vision for outstanding patient care and community support has resulted in over 20,000 patient lives transformed.

When not directly treating patients, he lectures to groups of several thousand orthodontic professionals, and their staff members, from across the country and the world.

His impact on the community has been nationally recognized, most notably as the recipient of the prestigious Invisalign Case Shootout Award (“The Top Invisalign Provider in North America” award). No matter how high the successes, Dr. Coles stays true to his passion of helping those less fortunate, transforming more children’s’ lives through the Smiles Change Lives non-profit organization than any other doctor in the United States ($600,000 each year in donated treatments).

He’s also authored two books with his brother, Dr. Tyler Coles ( “More Than Straight Teeth! A Parent’s Guide to Orthodontics”, “Start Smiling Now! What Every Parent Needs to Know About Orthodontics”), both of which are available here for free.

Education
Dr. Dustin Coles completed his undergraduate studies at Brigham Young University. He went on to receive his D.D.S. with distinction from Creighton University School of Dentistry, graduating with the highest academic standing in his class. Dr. Coles then completed his certificate of advanced graduate study in Orthodontics and Dentofacial Orthopedics at the Indiana University School of Dentistry.

Arizona Orthodontist, Dr. Tyler J. Coles DDS, MSD

“Being able to change someone’s smile can change their life. Having self-confidence and not being embarrassed to smile can open more doors and provide more opportunities than you may realize. We are lucky to provide this service every day for the children and adults in our communities.”

Dr. Tyler Coles joined his brother’s practice in 2012 and since then, the practice has expanded to seven locations and over 20,000 patient lives transformed throughout Arizona.

Dr. Coles has also co-authored two books with his brother ( “More Than Straight Teeth! A Parent’s Guide to Orthodontics”, “Start Smiling Now! What Every Parent Needs to Know About Orthodontics”), which is available for here for parents learning to better understand the process of braces.

Through the Smiles Change Lives non-profit organization, Dr. Coles has helped contribute more than $600,000 each year in donated treatment to those children whose families cannot afford them. In 2016 Dr. Tyler and his brother were awarded the “Gini Award” from the Smiles Change Lives organization in recognition of their commitment to help the community.

While Dr. Coles is incredibly proud of Premier’s local and regional impact, he also serves as an educator and influencer on a national scale. As a lecturer and keynote speaker, Dr. Coles teaches other orthodontists and dental hygienists at industry events about the power of patient care and a community-based mindset. He also makes frequent academic contributions to the field, authoring several monthly publications, newsletters, podcasts and journals.

Dr. Daniel Coles

Learn About Dr. Dan

Arizona Dentist, Dr. Daniel B. Coles DDS, MSD

“I sincerely believe that if you take care of patients and take care of the community, all other aspects of a dental practice fall into place.”

Dr. Daniel Coles is perhaps the greatest reason why Premier Orthodontics exists today. Thanks to the incredible example he’s set in his 40+ year career in the dental field, four out of his five children became dentists.

After four decades of dental service and tens of thousands of lives changed, Dr. Coles now works with his two sons, acting as a mentor and teacher to the young dental professionals through greater Phoenix and Arizona.

Among his greatest passions are instilling in young dentists and orthodontists the importance of giving back to the community you serve. Dr. Coles has done plenty of that himself, donating his time and energy to free community dental clinics, going on dental mission trips to the Dominican Republic and otherwise helping those who struggle with access to dental care.

Education
Dr. Daniel Coles completed his bachelor’s degree from Brigham Young University in 1974 and went on to receive his dental degree in1978 from Emory University School of Dentistry. Since that time, he has received advanced training and certifications from professional organizations including the American Academy of Implant Dentistry, the USV perio-implant Symposium, the White Cap Institute, the American Society of Dental Anesthesia, and the American Orthodontic Society.
