Dr. Sims and his staff create a wonderful atmosphere that makes getting braces enjoyable! I can’t thank them enough for being customer centric and understanding.



My daughter and I felt very relaxed, comfortable, and welcomed from the very first consultation. It is such a pleasure and comfort to have this fantastic team working on my daughter’s teeth.



My 10 year-old son had his first appliance put in about a week ago. I was very impressed with the attention and professionalism of the staff. Everyone was very patient and caring to my son.

We proudly offer orthodontic braces for children, teens and adults, and promise to work with you personally to meet your individual needs and desires. Our main orthodontic office is located in Pensacola, Florida.  We also see patients in Gulf Breeze and in our newest office located in Crestview. Whether you are looking for Invisalign in Pensacola or braces in Gulf Breeze, contact us today.

Invisalign Aligner Technology

Looking for a straighter smile but can’t bear the thought of wearing traditional metal braces? Invisalign may be a good option for you. The Invisalign aligners are removable and virtually invisible, which means you can straighten your teeth without anyone knowing! Plus, Dr. Sims is a board-certified Invisalign Platinum Provider, which means he has achieved a significant level of experience in treating patients with the Invisalign system.

2-Phase Treatment Approach

Two-phase orthodontic treatment is a specialized process that combines tooth straightening and physical facial changes. Sims Orthodontics at all of our Florida offices use the two-phase treatment to give children the healthiest, most functional, and most beautiful result, which will remain stable throughout their lives.

Adolescent Treatment

At Sims Orthodontics, we have more than 40 years of experience in providing orthodontic treatment to teens and adolescents in the Pensacola, Florida area. We know that this is a special time in their lives that is full of changes and increased self-awareness.
