Welcome to West Brook Orthodontic Center!

Welcome to the practice of Stanley J. Morris, D.M.D. and his highly trained staff at the West Brook Orthodontic Center, conveniently located in Ringwood, New Jersey. We offer the highest quality orthodontic care in a comfortable and friendly environment - which is just the beginning of what our office has to offer!

The latest digital photographic and radiologic imaging techniques are utilized to aid with diagnosis in order to assure that each patient receives the most effective treatment possible with the least amount of exposure to radiation.

We are particularly aware that everyone has unique requirements that must be addressed through a variety of techniques; thus, we offer a full range of treatment for children, adolescents and adults to achieve that straight, beautiful smile,

At the West Brook Orthodontic Center, a full range of services, from orthopedic appliances for younger patients, such as palatal expansion and two-phase treatment, to traditional or ceramic braces to Invisalign® for teens or adults is available. Mini-implants or TADs are also sometimes used to achieve the movement of certain teeth without negatively affecting other teeth, while a diode laser may be occasionally utilized to expose an unerupted tooth for bracketing. In some cases, orthognathic surgery is required to correct skeletal abnormalities that cannot be corrected by braces alone.

Not only do we provide cutting-edge procedures, we do it with a smile! We are committed to excellent service and want you to look forward to your next appointment.

Thank you for visiting our website! At the West Brook Orthodontic Center, your smile is our top priority!

The most advanced clear aligner system in the world.

Invisalign® clear aligners is the clear way of achieving all the benefits of traditional braces without anyone having to know you’re wearing braces.

What our patients say about us

    I approached orthodontia with trepidation. Concerns about bedside manner, pain, actual need, cost, and extensive time spent at appointments made me cautious about committing to the long-term orthodontist relationship my kids required.

    I picked the perfect practice. Dr. Morris and his staff are efficient, effective, and-most importantly-kind. Dr. Morris is excellent at communicating the issues with my children's teeth, how to solve the problems, the duration of each step in the process, and billing options. His staff is delightfully organized, valued my time, and was graciously patient with all the quirks that come with children.

    The nature of the world today is that specialist don't always have time to answer questions, go into details, or to take seriously what may be seemingly trivial concerns. Dr. Morris and his staff spent the time to make my children comfortable and answer our questions, and that makes our relationship a great one.

    Bravery is required when someone is permanently attaching a palate expander to your mouth or braces to your teeth. It's far easier for our children to be brave when they have faith that the doctor and his staff so clearly has their best interests at heart. Many thanks to everyone at West Brook Orthodontic Center!

    Having two professional child actors, Dr. Morris has taken our specific needs into consideration. As braces are not an option for my kids, Dr. Morris has developed removable appliances to fit their lifestyles. He is an amazing doctor and has patiently met our ever-changing schedule and has worked closely with us as a family to ensure the beautiful smiles that my kids now have. THANK YOU Dr. Morris!!!!

    There is no reason to go to another orthodontist. Dr. Morris is the one! Here’s why: He’s Great! And the results he provides are fabulous! He was awarded 2011 Top Doctor. He’s friendly, pleasant, patient, and he really knows his stuff. Even the most complicated cases are no problem for him. He listens to you and your desired results, and tells you exactly when and what will happen to get you there. And he’s genuinely concerned with your well-being while in his care. His staff is also fantastic--very pleasant, friendly, accommodating and knowledgeable too!

    Do you need more? Ok. I had so many issues with my teeth that I stopped smiling because they were so crooked and I was embarrassed. Within 10 months of my 1st Invisalign set, I am amazed at the results. My teeth are STRAIGHT! I can’t remember when I last saw them this way. (I’m a little older girl but not that old!). I smiled the other day with my teeth showing and smiled more because they were straight. I wasn’t embarrassed anymore. I looked at the initial mold of my teeth before treatment, and the way they are now, and WOW. I’m shocked at the results. But Dr. Morris wasn’t. He knew it would happen and he made it happen. Ten months with Dr. Morris erased years of embarrassment. And my teeth are much healthier now too.

    While I always totally trusted Dr. Morris, I am still amazed at the difference. I have more treatment to go, but am very happy with results to this date. If you’re in doubt, don’t be. You will be more than happy with Dr. Morris, his knowledge and expertise and very satisfied with the results and experience that he and his office staff provide. Oh and P.S.-- He’s just a nice guy too! THANK YOU, Dr. Morris!!!!!

    It has been many years that my children have been under your care and I just wanted you to know how much I appreciate all you have done for them. When I was directed to you by my dentist when my children were only eight years old I had some doubts and could not understand how such early intervention was needed. I remember asking you “why would I want to put a palatal expander on them and change their anatomy?” Your answer was most convincing when you said “isn’t taking eight permanent teeth out later not changing the child's anatomy?” I went to you with such high recommendations from people in the field, I just had to believe in you--so then came the different steps and years of orthodontic treatment.

    Step by step not only did their teeth come into place but all the steps made such sense. My daughter especially was not an easy case. From having a cross-bite, a palatial expander, oral surgery to remove impossible rooted baby teeth, to having chains put on the canines to move them over to prevent them from coming in over other teeth, to braces, to retainers, to a smile that is nothing less than stunning!!!! My son was much more routine but not with any less wonderful results. I believe in you so much after seeing the end result that if I had another child who needed your service, I would just go in blindly and say “do whatever you think is necessary”.

    My children often comment, when they see other children who have not had orthodontic care, that they are so happy we were able to fix their teeth. I know it has given them great self confidence in themselves and that alone has been worth everything. You have been flexible and once even going above what most doctors do by coming in, especially on your day off, because my daughter’s bracket was irritating her gum and needed to be fixed. This investment in their teeth has paid off far more than the cost.

    I sing your praise over and over and I tell anyone who needs ortho care that you are the best orthodontist. My beautiful children's smile is all the proof.

    I thank you sincerely for all you have done and I count myself lucky for having been directed to you. You are a perfectionist in a field that it is necessary and my children's results are nothing less than perfect.

    Thank you so much!

    I feel my daughter and I picked the best orthodontist for her treatment. Her final outcome was fantastic! Dr. Morris was always kind to her and took the time to listen to her concerns. We could not have been happier with Dr. Morris and his staff.

    Sincerely,
