About the Doctors

GoughRedigonda-0318-High-resDr. Lui Redigonda

“I know I chose the perfect profession for me as I am passionate about orthodontics. I am fortunate to be able to attend many continuing education orthodontic courses in order to stay current with procedures that are of benefit to our patients. I am also an orthodontic educator. As an Adjunct Clinical Professor in the Graduate Orthodontic Department at the University of Western Ontario, I teach and help train residents who will become future orthodontists all over North America.

I feel that orthodontics is special as it has the ability to change people’s lives through improving their smiles. Having a beautiful smile where the teeth and jaws are properly aligned greatly improves our patients’ self-esteem and self-confidence. Having an opportunity to make this positive impact is very special to me. The experience of getting to know and treat so many great families in the Stratford and Exeter areas makes every day enjoyable.”
