Orthodontics is a dental specialty focused on aligning your bite and straightening your teeth. You might need to see an orthodontist if you have crooked, overlapped, twisted or gapped teeth. Common orthodontic treatments include traditional braces, clear aligners and removable retainers.


Dr. Mike Tzotzis


Upon graduating from U of T, Dr. Tzotzis went on to complete his Doctor of Dental Surgery in 2002 at Howard University. He then attended the State University of New York (SUNY) at Buffalo, where he obtained his Masters of Science (M.S.) and completed his Orthodontic Certificate.

“I am very passionate about orthodontics and patient care. My interest in orthodontics started as a teenager and increased during my formal education and through my experience in the dental community. The focus on continuing education at Heritage Dental Specialists allows us to provide the most technically advanced treatments, ranging from conventional metal braces, to clear braces, Invisalign, and Harmony Lingual (inside) braces.”

“I feel fortunate to work in a position where I interact with people everyday. I love to laugh and smile and by providing you with the opportunity for a healthy and beautiful smile, I hope you will do the same. I strive to exceed your expectations so your smile is wide and shining bright all day long. The biggest compliment a patient can provide is their happy smile once treatment is completed.”


On his days off Dr. Tzotzis enjoys free time with his family, traveling and escaping to the cottage. He also enjoys a number of activities including fishing, hockey and tennis.
