Meet Dr. James Hutta James Hutta, DDS | Gahanna OH Orthodontist

There is no greater compliment than when a patient entrusts us with their smile. To honor this, our doctors have dedicated themselves to providing premier orthodontic care and transforming incredible smiles every day.

With over 30 years of combined experience and a commitment to staying at the forefront of advancements, their passion for orthodontics has pushed them to become the best in their field. At Hutta and Price Orthodontics, our patients can smile wide knowing that they’re in good hands.

Dr. Hutta

“I felt called to open my own practice when I realized that the wider Columbus community could benefit from an approach to dental care rooted in both compassion and the latest research and technological advances.

Working with my patients and getting to know them for who they are outside of my practice is something I take great joy in. However, I’m also a bit of a research nerd and love to read up on the latest developments in the orthodontic field. I think this is what has contributed to my success and sense of belonging in Columbus — the feeling that I’m making a positive impact on others’ lives and also doing what I’m passionate about.

I’m incredibly proud of the sense of family we have here at the practice. Our entire staff understands the importance of customer service and recognizes that, simply put, sometimes coming to see an orthodontist can be a little scary! Our team follows the golden rule of service and always puts our patients first, starting with your initial consultation. We’re blessed to be trusted by many families and individuals who have become a part of our practice, and we’re always keen to see and meet new faces at the practice.”
