What our Clients Are Saying...

“It was over and beyond what Dr. Lai did for Candace. Words aren’t enough to express our thanks! Its been a long process but after six months of appointments, Candace once again has a beautiful smile and the process began with Dr. Lai. Many, many thanks!”

– Ronnie, Amy & Candace – Tulsa

“The overall professionalism and staff at Kirpatrick and Lai is nothing short of the best!”

Katy Quinn – Tulsa – Co-Owner, The Inviting Place

“Dr. Doug put our family’s needs before his own when we were struggling. He had just met us as we moved here from Utah. Always professional and treated us with kindness and the kids with great care, never rushing us. They both look awesome and we can’t wait to see the next two transform. Thank you.”

–Lauri Atkinson and Family

  • Invisible Braces

    Drs. Kirkpatrick and Lai offer clear, or invisible, braces for those who prefer a more streamline look. Clear braces are a great alternative to the standard stainless steel brackets. More and more adults are turning to invisible braces. Conveniently, they use the same adhesive and bonding procedures as metal brackets. Radiance braces are the clear choice with the same control and predictable outcome as traditional braces but invisible. Faster, more precise tooth alignment than the leading invisible aligner with predictable results. Low maintenance. No need to replace costly aligners which can be easily lost. Made from monocrystalline sapphire which makes it the clearest bracket on the market. All of this will create a “Radiant” smile you deserve.

  • Dedicated to each individual patient, Drs. Tom and Doug Kirkpatrick and Joseph Lai love getting to know the people they help, and building meaningful friendships that last long after the treatment is complete.
  • Striving to meet every patient's needs, the doctors and staff at Kirkpatrick & Lai Orthodontics offer a variety of orthodontic treatments, including clear braces, early treatment, facial surgery referrals, adult orthodontic treatment, and other orthodontic braces and appliances.
  • Family-oriented, down to earth, and caring, we employ an "open office" concept where patients and their families are encouraged to ask questions and take an interactive role with their treatment.
  • We understand that you've got a busy daily schedule, so for your convenience we have five easy-to-get-to office locations in Tulsa, Miami, Okmulgee, Tahlequah, and Pryor, OK (Oklahoma).
