What Sets Us Apart

At Gulf Coast Orthodontics, we are here for you! You become part of our family, and because of that, we want you to feel at home every time you visit. We know you have to work with us to achieve a beautiful smile, and we appreciate your efforts to make this teamwork efficiently.

Experience You Can Count On

We are known as a high quality, professional, and caring office. Over the past 15 years, we’ve built a reputation in the Fort Myers and Estero communities for providing the highest quality orthodontic care in a professional and family-friendly environment.

Dr. Michele Laboda and Dr. Van Speas have lived in the Fort Myers community for more than 45 years and take pride in serving the people of this great community. Our staff is friendly and welcoming and known for going the extra distance to help our patients and parents feel comfortable.

Patients Come First

Patients who come to our office after other consultations can tell the difference. From the moment they enter the door, they know they are not just another set of teeth, but rather an individual we care about. We want to make a positive difference in their lives and provide a memorable orthodontic experience.

Each member of our team has been with the practice for several years and recognizes that each person who walks through the door is a new family member. We take the time to make them feel comfortable and well informed.

An Environment to Enjoy

We know that the more comfortable our patients feel the smoother treatment tends to go, so we’ve designed our practice with that in mind. There is a game room for patients and siblings to stay entertained if they need to wait and several fish tanks for patients and families to enjoy.
