Welcome to Pridemore and Cox Orthodontics, the practice of Dr. Ryan J. Cox, a board certified orthodontist, and Dr. Ben Pridemore, Jr. We are a trusted tradition in our community, and are committed to providing excellence in orthodontics to create beautiful and confident smiles. Our talented orthodontic team has over 250 years of experience, ensuring that you will receive only the best care available. With our warm, comfortable, and family-focused atmosphere, we look forward to creating a perfect smile for you or your child.
Dr. Cox teamed with Dr. Pridemore at the beginnning of 2012 and is continuing the legacy of our practice daily! He joined our practice as one of the youngest orthodontists to ever become Board Cetified, an honor that only 25% of orthodontists ever achieve in a lifetime of orthodontics. Shortly after joining our practice, he published two scholarly articles in orthodontic literature and began providing continuing education courses for his peers, earning him a position as an Adjunct Faculty member at the UAB Hospital Dept. of Orthodontics. In December of 2016 and February of 2017 Dr. Cox had two of his patient results published on the cover of the AJO-DO. Although he has spent his life (since the age of 13) focused on orthodontics, he recognizes that the most important thing God provides us in life is our families. His family includes his amazing wife Amy, his daughter Addie Kate, and his son Anderson.
Whether you are 7 or 78, our practice is focused on helping you achieve the smile of your dreams. We offer complimentary consultations and invite you to call and schedule one at our Rome orthodontic office today. Our team looks forward to meeting you and working with you to achieve a perfect smile for a lifetime of smiling.
