Dr. J. Lawrence Hutta
Dr. Hutta is one of the most celebrated orthodontists in the entire Midwest. Known in Central Ohio for his dedication to amazing results, his passion for his craft and emerging techniques, and his caring personality, it’s no surprise that tens of thousands of families have trusted their smiles to Dr. J. Lawrence Hutta. Dr. Hutta’s skills are so advanced and sought after that he has had orthodontists from around the country and even as far away as Japan make the journey to Ohio to study his techniques. He is also educating the next generation of dentists and orthodontists at The Ohio State University College of Dentistry, where he is on faculty and lectures several times a month.
Dr. Hutta graduated cum laude from The Ohio State University College of Dentistry, where he was selected into the prestigious dental honorary society, Omicron Kappa Epsilon. Dr. Hutta went on to complete his general dental residency and a two-year graduate program in orthodontics at the University of Rochester School of Dentistry/Eastman Institute for Oral Health.

He also has the honor of being a Diplomate of The American Board of Orthodontics, a special distinction held by a select number of orthodontists.
A proud supporter of the community, Dr. Hutta supports local elementary schools and gives scholarships to deserving high school graduates.

When he’s not creating beautiful smiles, you can find Dr. Hutta attending an OSU football or basketball game, playing golf, or spending time with family.
Dr. Tori Hutta
Dr. Tori Hutta had a front-row seat to orthodontia and the difference it can make in someone’s life. Even as a child, she loved shadowing her dad at his practice. Watching the joy and amazement on a patient’s face as they saw their new smile for the first time stayed with her and inspired her to carry on Dr. Larry Hutta’s legacy of creating gorgeous smiles that last a lifetime.
After receiving her Bachelor of Science in dental hygiene from The Ohio State University’s College of Dentistry, Dr. Tori Hutta continued her education there and received both her Dental Degree and Master of Science in orthodontics. She is a Buckeye through and through!
When Dr. Tori Hutta isn’t creating beautiful smiles for her patients or studying the latest orthodontic technique, you can find her rooting for the Buckeyes, spending time with her family, traveling with her husband, Daniel, or playing with her dog, Presley. After a lifetime of education from her dad—from childhood through her orthodontic residency—she is excited and proud to join the Hutta Orthodontic Specialists team.
