Welcome to Hutta & Hutta Orthodontics

At Hutta & Hutta Orthodontics, we have the great joy of creating beautiful, healthy smiles that last a lifetime.


The “Hutta” name has been synonymous with excellent orthodontic care, top-notch service and beautiful smiles that last a lifetime for nearly three decades in Central Ohio. Dr. J. Lawrence Hutta & Dr. James T. Hutta have a combined 52 years of experience and can measure relationships with their patients in not just months or even years, but decades.  Recognized as two of the best orthodontists in the Midwest, the Hutta brothers provide the very best orthodontic care and settle for nothing less than extraordinary.

Our Family Story

Drs. Hutta & Hutta grew up in Youngstown, Ohio. The sons of an educator and a homemaker, academics were prioritized in their family of six and both brothers were enthralled by science. As they grew older, they found they shared the same passion—taking care of people—and wanted to put their love of science and service to good use.

With a teacher for a father and nurses for sisters, you could say taking care of people is just in the Hutta blood. For the Hutta brothers, there is no greater gift than watching someone see their new smile for the first time. To see a newfound confidence and to hear how it’s changed their life is what makes being an orthodontist more than just a career for both— it’s a passion.

After nearly 29 years of successfully practicing independently in Central Ohio, the Hutta brothers have come together to create a joint practice to serve the city of Westerville Ohio; a community they live in, love and strongly support. Getting to work alongside each other and fulfill their life’s purpose together is a childhood dream realized.
