Modern orthodontics for modern lives.

What makes Owl the wise choice?

We are a deeply-rooted, multi-location orthodontic practice serving families all over Western New York, and we’ve been straightening smiles since 1955. Whether we’re caring for a child, teen, or adult, every smile we see is different, and that informs our personalized approach to modern orthodontic treatment. When you make the wise choice for you and your family, you can expect a precise and efficient experience that aligns with your busy life—and above all, keeps you smiling.

Meet your orthodontist, Dr. Matthew Walla.

Dr. Walla joined the Owl Orthodontics family in August 2010. He is originally from Indiana (go Hoosiers!) and grew up in a small town near Chicago, Illinois. Dr. Walla received his Bachelor of Arts in Biology from Indiana University before moving on to earn his dental degree from New York University, where he graduated as valedictorian of his class. Dr. Walla continued at NYU to complete a two-year, post-graduate program in orthodontics and dentofacial orthopedics. He is a member of the American Dental Association, American Association of Orthodontists, and the Omicron Kappa Upsilon National Dental Honors Society. When Dr. Walla isn’t at the office, he’s spending time with his wife, Liz, and his son, Ethan. He enjoys listening to music, reading fiction, and snowboarding.

From at the chair to in the community.

When our team’s not at the office caring for our patients, we’re doing what we can to care for our community. From joining forces with the Tiger’s Den Food Pantry to supporting Summit Educational Resources—the region’s leading provider of programs for individuals with developmental, social, and behavioral challenges—we’re not only committed to straightening teeth but strengthening our community, too.
