Dr. Todd Gililland

R. Todd Gililland, DMD, is a leading orthodontist at GO Orthodontics in Oxford, Saltillo, Southaven, and Corinth, MS, and Collierville, TN!

from Dr. Gililland...

“Since becoming an orthodontist in 2002, one of the things I am still truly amazed by is when we make people look better, we actually improve their oral, as well as overall bodily health!”

Many people think that braces are strictly cosmetic. Nothing could be further from the truth. As we are creating a person’s beautiful smile, we are also not only raising their self-esteem, but making them healthier. Teeth that are straight and balanced tend not to wear. They self-cleanse, too, which leads to fewer cavities and other issues.

The best thing about what I do for a living is getting to know all the patients with whom I work, and their families, and learning from them. Over the course of their treatment, I see their confidence, sense of self, and optimism begin to grow. I begin to hear it from their families and friends. The metamorphosis is remarkable.

It is very rewarding to see them, once they’ve finished treatment, on the ball fields or on stage, smiling and laughing confidently. I know they are on the road to succeeding in life.”
