Biography

Dr. Bordeaux was born and raised in Tacoma, Washington. His father was an orthodontist in Tacoma for over 40 years and Joe decided to follow in his footsteps. He graduated from Bellarmine Preparatory High School and then went on to receive his B.A. from the University of Washington in 1985. He received his Doctor of Dental Surgery (D.D.S.) degree from Creighton University Dental School in 1989 and then was accepted into the University of Nebraska Orthodontic Graduate Program on a Regents Scholarship. He completed a two year full time specialty residency and graduated with both a Masters of Science (M.S.) degree and a Certificate of Orthodontics in 1991. Dr. Bordeaux is a Board-Certified Orthodontist and a Diplomate of the American Board of Orthodontics. This is the only orthodontic specialty board recognized by the American Dental Association and sponsored by the American Association of Orthodontists. Currently, only 35% of orthodontists are board certified. He is also a member of the American Association of Orthodontics, Washington State Society of Orthodontics, Pacific Coast Society of Orthodontics, American Dental Association, Washington State Dental Society, Pierce County Dental Association, and Club of Orthodontic Study. Joe and his wife of 29 years have three daughters. His other interests include golfing, skiing, and spending time with family and friends.

Which cases do you enjoy treating? Why?

According to studies by the American Association of Orthodontists, untreated malocclusions can result in a variety of problems. Crowded teeth are more difficult to properly brush and floss, which may contribute to tooth decay and/or gum disease. Protruding teeth are more susceptible to accidental chipping. Cross bites can result in unfavorable growth and uneven tooth wear. Open bites can result in tongue-thrusting habits and speech impediments. Ultimately, orthodontics does more than make a pretty smile-it creates a healthier you.
