“I believe we should all LOVE • LIFE • SMILING! Being an orthodontist helps me do that! Everyone deserves the self-confidence that comes with a beautiful smile. People should enjoy the transformation of their smiles in a fun, positive, patient-focused environment. Through state-of-the-art technology and advances in time-tested techniques to align jaws and straighten teeth, we're able to exceed our patients' expectations." – Dr. Rawlins
Dr. Rawlins was raised in Unionville, PA. He completed his undergraduate studies at Penn State University where he not only developed his addiction to Penn State football, but he also attained a Bachelor of Science degree in Science and graduated first in his class as the Valedictorian of the Eberly College of Science. He went on to receive two prestigious Ivy League degrees for his dental education and orthodontic specialty training, starting with his Doctorate of Dental Medicine from the world-renowned University of Pennsylvania, School of Dental Medicine, where he graduated second in his class. He jokingly tells his friends that he slipped to second in his class during dental school because he fell in love with his wife and was distracted. After dental school, Dr. Rawlins spent an additional three years at the esteemed Columbia University, College of Dental Medicine to specialize in orthodontics where he received his Master of Science in Orthodontics.
Dr. Rawlins provides the perfect blend of technology and experience. The field of orthodontics continues to see rapid technological and digital advances. Dr. Rawlins is young enough to have been trained in the most current technologies. However, he is old enough to have a few gray hairs to match his experience in creating hundreds of amazing smiles over many years.
Dr. Rawlins stays at the forefront of his field. He continually studies the latest advances in orthodontic treatment through continuing education courses and by participating in professional associations and organizations. These latest technologies mean shorter treatment times and fewer office visits for his patients. In 2019, Dr. Rawlins was named one of the Top Orthodontists in the area by Delaware Today Magazine.
