At VanderWall Orthodontics, we go the extra mile for our patients. In fact, Dr. Clay VanderWall went above and beyond standard orthodontic training to become a board certified orthodontist in Raleigh, Cary and Durham. This prestigious credential represents our commitment to excellence and expert-level care. When you come to us for orthodontics, you know you’re getting the very best.
What Does It Mean to Be Board Certified?
We’re glad you asked! After first completing dental school and then two to three years of advanced education in orthodontics, an orthodontist must voluntarily undergo hundreds of additional hours of training to become board certified. The process also involves extensive evaluation of the orthodontist’s knowledge, skill and expertise. Only one in three orthodontists complete their board certification, so it truly signifies the highest level of orthodontic achievement and a commitment to lifelong learning.
After graduating dental school and then serving in the United States Navy, Dr. Clay VanderWall attended a three-year, post-doctoral orthodontic residency at Albert Einstein Medical Center where he received his orthodontic speciality certificate. Knowing he could do more to provide the highest quality care possible, Dr. VanderWall went on to pursue his board certification.
After moving to the Triangle area with his wife and three children, Dr. VanderWall fulfilled his dream of opening his own practice. Now, as a board-certified orthodontist in Raleigh, Cary and Durham, NC, he offers cutting-edge, high-quality orthodontic care to patients of all ages. He’s passionate about making a positive difference in his patients’ lives by creating affordable smiles they’re proud to show off.

We LOVE Dr. VanderWall!! From day 1 we’ve had great service and quality care for my son. He has braces and is less than half way through his two year treatment. His teeth already look SO great! I really can’t recommend him highly enough. You should definitely set up a consultation to see how he can help you. You won’t be sorry!Ann G
I found Dr. VanderWall after researching several orthodontists in Raleigh. Once we visited his office for the consultation we knew he was our first choice. Almost a year later we know we definitely made the right choice. Dr. VanderWall is a very good orthodontist, he's extremely friendly, thorough and he genuinely cares about achieving the best results. My daughter's teeth look awesome already and she has had her braces on less than a year. I highly recommend him.CM
Dr. VanderWall and his staff are amazing! We are always in and out quickly & everyone always remembers our name. We currently have our third child in braces, it has been a great experience for all of them. We had quotes from other orthodontists and he came in significantly less than the others which is also a huge plus.Mary L
I LOVE Dr. Vanderwall and his staff! Everyone is always friendly and really go the extra mile to know you. I had Invisalign years ago and everything went smooth. The glue on my permanent retainer chipped off and he fixed it- no big deal.LeAnna C
