The history of Bandeen Orthodontics of Battle Creek
Bandeen Orthodontics of Battle Creek, MI was established in 1987 by Dr. Roger Bandeen. In May of 2006, Dr. Timothy Bandeen joined the practice after having worked as an orthodontist in Tennessee and Mississippi. The doctors worked together as partners until January 1st, 2008 when Dr. Roger retired from our orthodontist office in Battle Creek to focus his attention on his other practice in Cadillac, Michigan. While it was difficult to have Dr. Roger leave the office, Dr. Timothy Bandeen is was extremely excited to take the lead at this incredible office, and he has used this opportunity to provide many exciting improvements to his orthodontic practice.
In late 2009, Dr, Emily Bandeen, wife of Dr. Tim Bandeen, became a part of Bandeen Orthodontics. Dr. Emily is a general dentist who has brought her own skills and abilities to our office that help immensely with your orthodontic care. Dr. Emily does not see patients for general dentistry at our office as we are a specialty office focusing on orthodontic care.
In July 2011, Dr. Tim & Dr. Emily took the ambitious and exciting step of building a new facility for Bandeen Orthodontics. Located at 4602 Beckley Road in Battle Creek and in January of 2012, Bandeen Orthodontics opened in the new office. With a well-planned design, the new office allows us to see improvements in our patients’ care and experience. Bandeen Orthodontics is proud to invest in our community here in Battle Creek.

In 2016, the practice of Dr. James Souers (also known as Michigan Orthodontic Specialists), with locations in both Three Rivers and Kalamazoo, joined the Bandeen Orthodontics team. Dr. Souers officially retired in May of 2017 from the new Bandeen Orthodontics offices in Kalamazoo & Three Rivers. Since that time, Dr. Roger Bandeen has briefly returned to Bandeen Orthodontics to help with the transition of the new practice locations. Dr. Tim Bandeen has also been helping set the new tone for our practice in Kalamazoo and Three Rivers, and we are welcoming other new doctors to the Kalamazoo and Three Rivers locations. Both Dr. Emily Bandeen and Dr. Tim Bandeen can still be found in Battle Creek.
