Welcome to Forwood & Christie Orthodontics!

We are pleased to welcome you to our practice! Our offices are conveniently located in Media and Wallingford, Pennsylvania. Dr. Francis G. Forwood, Dr. Kimberly F. Christie, and Dr. H. Ben Drane are dedicated to the art and science of orthodontics, and are passionate about creating beautiful smiles and healthy bites. Whether you’re an adult, adolescent or child our knowledgeable doctors and experienced staff are committed to helping you achieve the smile you deserve – a healthy beautiful one!

We recognize that every patient has different needs, and we pride ourselves in the courteous service that we deliver to each person who walks through our door. Every patient’s orthodontic problems are diagnosed and a treatment plan is formulated and reviewed by all doctors before a patient is treated in our office. We take great pride in the amount of time that the doctors spend studying and reviewing each individual patient’s diagnostic records, so we can ensure that we are providing our patients with the best care possible. Our practice strives to meet every patient’s needs. There is always a doctor on call and can be reached should there be an orthodontic emergency.

One of the unique characteristics about our practice is that both Dr. Forwood and Dr. Christie are on the orthodontic faculty of the University of Pennsylvania. They teach didactic and clinical orthodontic therapy to the post-doctoral orthodontic residents.
