Dr. Gene Dongieux graduated from Dental School at the Loyola University in New Orleans – LA in 1962. Dr. Dongieux began his specialty training in Orthodontics at Loyola University in Chicago in 1963 and graduated with a Master of Science degree in 1965.

In the almost 40 years that Dr. Dongieux has practiced orthodontics, he has characteristically challenged himself personally and professionally. Personally, when not working, Dongieux spent his time travelling extensively, race car driving, motorcycling, water and snow skiing, scuba diving, surfing, sailing and golfing in the Bob Hope Desert Classic.

Professionally,

Dr. Dongieux traveled the world over to study and work with the best orthodontic researchers in the field of Lingual Braces. Dr. Dongieux now promotes Invisalign, clear removable aligners, and Lingual Braces as his preferred method of orthodontic procedure because “these procedures treat the whole patient by giving the patient maximum corrective effort with minimal aesthetic impact.

Typical of his style, Dongieux traveled the world over to study and work with the best orthodontic researchers in the field of Lingual Braces (or rear mounted braces). Dongieux now promotes Invisalign, clear removable aligners, and Lingual Braces as his preferred method of orthodontic procedure because “these procedures treat the whole patient by giving the patient maximum corrective effort with minimal aesthetic impact." Lingual braces are especially effective in correcting severe orthodontic problems.
