Dr. Cordes passes himself off as an experienced orthodontist who cares about children. His website showcases the fact that he is a part-time faculty at the University of Connecticut School of Dental Medicine in addition to being an Orthodontist. (Remember the old adage, those who can do, and those who can't teach). His website also states "While at The University of Connecticut, Dr. Cordes received numerous research grants and awards in the field of healthcare economics." That's right, research on the money involved in Orthodontics. Why would a doctor blatantly showcase that he is out for money instead of out to help his patients. That's a bit chilling to think about. This search for profit over caring for patients is also shown in the number of offices he has, three. Yes, Dr. Cordes has three offices (Westfield, MA, Enfield, CT and Suffield, CT.), and only one Doctor, himself. While many Doctors do hold two offices, I feel three is pushing it in terms of good care for patients. This large number of offices fits his profile of looking for profit. Doctors for the most part work hard to earn their degree, and then work hard to maintain a good practice, but in Dr. Cordes case, he is a man solely out for profit above all else. When it comes to Orthodontic treatment, Dr. Cordes seems like a fish out of the water. At the end of treatment, there was still spaces between teeth, still a bite that was not even close to perfect. Some of his staff changed hands a few times during the time going to him, so I wonder why the turnover in that area as well? While he is nice, pleasant, and outgoing, his technical skills in treating orthodontic issues are very lacking. I came across another former patient (whom I attended school with) who was also less than satisfied and not at all thrilled with her results from Dr. Cordes. What a pattern. Do you really want someone who puts profit above his patients well being? Take a look at Dr. Cordes's record before you choose him for treatment, both his academic record and his professional record show a man out for profit, rather than a Doctor trying to make a difference. My recommendation is to find someone else who is more qualified to provide quality orthodontic treatment, because you won't find that with Dr. Cordes. You will find three offices you can go to, and a desk that is always happy to take your money.
