Gehring Orthodontics

Welcome to Gehring Orthodontics, the office of David C. Gehring D.D.S., M.S.  Located in Cedar Rapids, Iowa, we are dedicated to providing our patients with the highest standard of orthodontic care available.

There are many dentists who may do orthodontics, but that does not mean they are an ORTHODONTIST.  Orthodontists are uniquely-trained specialists who, after graduating from dental school, go on to a post-doctoral, full-time orthodontic residency program for at least 2 years.  We are trained to partner with your dentist to provide you with the best possible care because we have extensive training and experience in diagnosing and managing all levels of orthodontic treatment needs.

At our office, you are more than just a patient – you are family!  Dr. Gehring will work with you to determine the best treatment solution to meet your specific orthodontic needs.

Early Treatment

Our objective is to make sure your visits with us will be pleasant and informative. Your initial appointment will consist of an examination and a discussion of potential treatment options. This important visit will address the orthodontic needs of you or your child.

Crowding & Spacing

Crowding is the lack of space for all the teeth to fit normally within the jaws. The teeth may be twisted or displaced. Crowding occurs when there is disharmony in the tooth to jaw size relationship, or when the teeth are larger than the available space.

Types of Braces

We offer a wide variety of braces to suit every age and lifestyle!

  • Metal Braces
  • Ceramic (Clear) Braces
  • Invisalign®


No matter what, we want to see Cedar Rapids smiling! Whether you are giving a presentation to your class, sitting in a client meeting, or sitting down in our chair, we want to see your smile! Make Cedar Rapids a better place; show off your smile!
