When asked what Dr. O’Grady likes best about being an orthodontist, he will tell you it is the look he sees on his patients' faces when they see their amazing results of orthodontic treatment. That is when Dr. O’Grady knows he has served his patients well.
What drew Dr. O’Grady to the Grand Rapids area was the strong sense of family values in a community that has a priority on faith, education, and service. It was in the Grand Rapids area where Dr. O’Grady met his wife, Brigit, and started a family. They have four children: Maxwell, the twins Lillian and Sawyer, and Eleanor, as well as a Vizsla dog named Chesney.
When Dr. O’Grady is not in the office he is at home with his wife and children playing games with the kids, golfing, and water skiing.
Born in New York City and raised in Spokane, Washington, Dr. O’Grady received his Bachelor of Science degree from the University of Notre Dame, a Doctor of Dental Surgery degree from the University of North Carolina, and a Master of Science degree in Orthodontics from the University of Michigan. As a result, Dr. O’Grady has had the opportunity to receive the finest education and live in many different communities.
