Oral Francis, DDS

Dr. Oral Francis had always dreamed of improving people’s smiles and loves helping his patients through their orthodontic treatment. Dr. Francis earned his bachelor’s degree in chemistry from the University of South Florida and his Doctor of Dental Surgery degree from Meharry Medical College, where he graduated in the top 5 percent of his class. He completed two full years of post-graduate specialty training in orthodontics at Howard University and has also been inducted into the International Dental Honor Society. Dr. Francis has been providing outstanding orthodontic care to his patients since 2003. As a board-certified orthodontist, he is among the small percentage of orthodontists in the United States to earn this certified degree of recognized excellence.

To further illustrate his commitment to the profession, Dr. Francis also maintains memberships with numerous prestigious organizations, some of which include: the American Association of Orthodontists, the American Dental Association, the Southern Association of Orthodontists, and the American Board of Orthodontics. Decatur Orthodontics’ top priority is to provide the highest quality orthodontic care in a friendly, comfortable environment.

Away from the office, Dr. Francis enjoys spending time with his beautiful wife and three boys. He also enjoys traveling, working out, and finding new places to grab a bite.

“I enjoy seeing the transformation that happens when my patients move through the different stages of orthodontic treatment, and my favorite moment is when they get their braces off. It is very rewarding to see a beautiful smile and to know that my staff and I helped make it a reality.”
