Our Specialists

Meet the awesome doctors of Winston-Salem's only home-grown orthodontic office.

Dr. Thom Handy


“I genuinely like kids. It gives me much pleasure to see their self-image and confidence soar as their beautiful smiles develop.”

Dr. Gordon Handy


“I followed in my father’s footsteps and became an orthodontist because I really love to use my hands, my mind, and my heart to help patients reach their fullest potential.”


Dr. Caroline Bates


“After receiving care right here at H2O in my younger years, my life blossomed. I’m so grateful I get to be here helping others experience that same transformation I did!”



Working with H2O is easy-peasy (lemon squeezy).

1. Give us a call

Give us a call at one of our three locations to schedule your free exam.

2. Free evaluation

Every patient starts with a free orthodontic evaluation that includes x-rays, digital photos and a digital scan. We’ll get crystal-clear on your problems and exactly what (if any) orthodontic treatment you need.

3. Carry out your customized smile plan

We’ll get you started right away with the treatment that fits your goals and your life best. 

Our Core Values

From the moment we take your call to the moment we see you out the door for the last time, everything we do at H2O is based on our core values.
