Congratulations to Dr. Dustin Coles and Dr. Tyler Coles of Premier Orthodontics in Chandler, Maricopa, Casa Grande, AZ, for being chosen as SCL’s Orthodontic Providers of the Week! We thank Drs. Dustin and Tyler and their entire team for their generosity, dedication, and outstanding service they provide to our SCL program participants!
In May of this year, Drs. Justin and Tyler Coles joined the SCL family of orthodontic providers. When they heard there was a three year waiting list for children approved for treatment in and around their community of Phoenix, AZ, they said they would treat all 20 children.
Alexis Barclay, SCL’s Director of Provider Services remembers the day he received their email. “When I first read Dr. Cole’s email, I started tearing up. I have been with Smiles for over eight years now and am in charge of the Arizona area. The wait time has always been around 36 months and it is a particularly long wait for SCL participant families. The children endure pain and bullying during the long wait for us to find treatment for them. Words cannot describe how thankful we are to Drs. Justin and Tyler Cole for joining our program and eliminating the wait time for participants in the Phoenix area.”
