What Sets Us Apart

Creating Healthy and Beautifully Confident Smiles, One Person at a Time!

Dr. Karen Cottingham and her team are honored to create lifetimes of beautifully healthy and confident smiles for our Indianapolis friends and neighbors. We love serving our community and building generational relationships grounded in communication, trust, and respect.

When you choose us for orthodontic care, you’re choosing a doctor and team who believe in treating you as family: professionally and kindly, with your health and wellbeing at the forefront. We are a single-doctor practice, wholly-owned by Dr. Cottingham, so you'll know you're always being treated by the sole decision maker.

You’re not just another patient to us. Patients are like our extended family. After all, we'll be seeing you on a regular basis during your treatment. Many of our patients stay in touch with us for many years after their treatment, even bringing their own children, family members, and friends to us long after their own completion. We are always availble to you after treatment if you ever have questions. We value your smile as our product, but value you as family!

Why Choose Cottingham Orthodontics?

Dr. Cottingham and our team believe there is no greater reward than giving someone the confidence of a beautiful smile that will last a lifetime!

  • Our Doctor: Throughout her career, Dr. Cottingham has pursued continuing education, seeking out the latest treatment methodologies, innovative technology, and new materials. She has been recognized by her peers as one of the best in her profession. This commitment to constant learning, and incorporating that knowledge into her practice, ensures you receive the high-quality care you deserve. Beyond her clinical knowledge and abilities, though, is Dr. Cottingham’s warm and friendly personality. She loves connecting with each patient, personally, and sharing in their lives throughout their treatment journey.
  • Our Team: Everyone at Cottingham Orthodontics, from the front office through the clinic, is professional, caring, and people-oriented. We will make your appointments smooth, informative, and comfortable, and are always attentive to your needs. We take pride in offering the exceptional customer service and quality clinical treatment you deserve, so your orthodontic experience is wonderful, from consultation to your new smile.

Individualized Orthodontic Solutions for All Ages

We are dedicated to ethical orthodontics, always doing what is best for you: your age, clinical needs, and personal desires are always taken into consideration.

Your first complimentary visit is thorough and informative. Dr. Cottingham will review your diagnostic images, walk you through the diagnosis, and discuss options that best suit your needs and situation. Rather than pushing a particular treatment, she will give you the information needed to make a knowledgeable decision that is right for you. This is your smile and you deserve to be an engaged and educated partner in the transformation!
