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 six 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” and “Start Smiling Now! What Every Parent Needs to Know About Orthodontics”).

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