Weaver Orthodontics: A Hometown Family Practice
I’m Dr. Russell Weaver. Prior to opening Weaver Orthodontics I was an orthodontist with the U.S. Army for almost a decade. My military career spanned 21 years of active duty service and included time in the U.S. Navy as well as the U.S. Army. My wife Jessica and I first moved to Southern Pines in 2005. Since then, the Army stationed our family (now including our two daughters) at Ft. Bragg three different times for a total of 10 years over a 15-year time span. In the second half of 2018, we began the final planning for my retirement from the Army in June of 2019. Jessica and I had been planning for this exciting transition out of the Army for several years, but had expected to purchase an existing practice on the east coast. However, early on in the process of searching for the right practice, it became clear that the available practices were either not what we were looking for or were not in a suitable location for our family to permanently settle. After 6 months of looking at existing practices, an opportunity to start our own practice in Southern Pines began to materialize. An office space was available right in the heart of the Southern Pines business district and next to one of my Army colleagues, Dr. Jose Cangas, a pediatric dentist, owner of The Dental Derby. Our whole family was overjoyed at the idea of planting permanent roots in an area that, in many ways, already had become our home. Things took shape rapidly and Weaver Orthodontics was born right here in Southern Pines in July of 2019. Jessica and I designed and built this practice with local families in mind and utilized as many local products and services as possible in constructing the office. From DAK’s office furniture in Carthage, Not Just Linens in Vass, Legacy Home Construction in Southern Pines, and Luxury Upholstery in Aberdeen, almost every inch of Weaver Orthodontics has been touched by local businesses. We are proud of using local businesses as well as having a family owned practice located in a place we have called home since 2005. Weaver Orthodontics is now the practice of our dreams; a home town family practice dedicated to serving families in the local area.
