Welcome to Buda Orthodontics, formerly known as Long Orthodontics

We are glad to welcome you to Buda Orthodontics, formerly known as Long Orthodontics.

Here at Long Orthodontics, Dr. Elizabeth Long has spent the last 10 years in Hays County striving to provide the highest quality, comprehensive orthodontic treatment for children, teens and adults. The Long Orthodontics team has been treating patients in Hays and Travis counties including South Austin, Kyle, San Marcos, Wimberley, Dripping Springs, Lockhart and Buda, Texas. Our team has over 100 years of combined experience in orthodontic care. We know what a difference in health and self-esteem a beautiful smile can make, which is why we're dedicated to giving our patients the beautiful, straight smiles they deserve! Dr. Long was diligent in her selection of your new orthodontist. Dr. Connor Despot was chosen because of his dedication to excellent patient care, impeccable treatment planning and his desire to become part of this community. It is Dr. Long’s pleasure to introduce you to Dr. Connor Despot, the recipient of the torch. Dr. D will work side by side with Dr. L as they treatment plan and care for patients together for the next several months, and into 2020.

Early Treatment

We are specialists in determining whether early orthodontic treatment is needed for a child. Early orthodontic treatment can relieve or correct many problems before they become permanent. More importantly, it can reduce the expenses of orthodontics and time needed in braces!

Adult Treatment

Think you’re too old for braces? Think again! We are experts at providing orthodontics to patients of all ages, even adults. We provide aesthetic adult orthodontic treatment options for patients who’d like to discreetly straighten their smile.

Thank you for visiting the website of Long Orthodontics! If you have any questions about our practice, please contact us. We’ll be glad to assist you in any way we can!
