Meet Dr. Elizabeth DuPlessis Waters

Dr. Elizabeth grew up in the office and always knew she wanted to be in the dental field. While in dental school, she realized that orthodontics was the perfect fit for her. She loves seeing her patients’ self-esteem blossom throughout orthodontic treatment.. She believes that a beautiful smile never goes out of style!

Dr. Elizabeth is a 2002 graduate of Elizabethtown High School. She obtained her undergraduate degree from Saint Louis University and then her Doctorate of Dental Medicine from the University of Kentucky in 2011. Dr. Elizabeth received a Master’s of Science degree in orthodontics from Saint Louis University in 2013 and started practice with her dad a few days after graduating. She believes continuing education is very important to stay on the cutting-edge of orthodontics and regularly attends courses throughout the year.  Her Masters thesis was recently published in the American Journal of Orthodontics and Dentofacial Orthopedics August 2016 issue and can be found here: Relationship between body mass and dental and skeletal development in children and adolescents
