Our practice has called the beach cities of El Segundo and Manhattan Beach, CA home for over 45 years. Originally established by Dr. James Duffin in 1967, the practice was expanded to include Dr. Michael Adams in 1977 and Dr. Amy Gimlen in 2006. Our endurance and reputation has allowed us to stay in touch with our patients long after their orthodontic treatment is completed, and enabled us to treat second and even third generation family members.
Dr. Gimlen and Dr. Adams have a unique blend of training from some of the top nationally recognized clinical orthodontic programs and decades of treatment experience. This level of experience is unparalleled and irreplaceable. The longevity of the practice also extends to the team, and over the years, has helped create treatment continuity and post-treatment support.
Our doctors’ diverse training and practice experience allow for a comprehensive treatment philosophy, enabling them to draw on their diverse knowledge to compare and combined proven cutting-edge treatment techniques. In order to help our patients achieve an ideal smile and bite, we utilize traditional metal and clear braces, Incognito™ lingual braces, AcceleDent® Aura, and Invisalign® and Invisalign Teen® clear aligners.
With two locations in El Segundo and Manhattan Beach, and convenient hours to accommodate school and work, getting the smile of your dreams has never been easier! We invite you to schedule a complimentary consultation, meet our doctors and team, and learn about your orthodontic treatment options. A lifetime of smiles is just a phone call away!
