Welcome to Our Practice

Welcome to Bancroft Orthodontics! Since 1990, we have been working with patients to provide the highest quality orthodontic care for patients in our Waldwick and Teaneck locations, serving all of Bergen County and beyond. Dr. James Bancroft's experience in orthodontics is coupled with genuine concern for his patients. The Bancroft Orthodontics team is dedicated to your comfort throughout treatment, with our primary goal of helping you to achieve a healthy and beautiful smile!

As leaders in the orthodontic specialty, we take great satisfaction in resolving unfavorable conditions of the teeth including crowding and blocked out teeth, spacing, overbites, deep bites, among many other scenarios. Our practice is devoted to orthodontic care for BOTH children and adults - a true family orthodontic practice. Dr. Bancroft, his daughter Dr. Ashley, son-in-law Dr. Keith, and their team take pride in providing you with the latest in orthodontic techniques and technologies through the use of Invisalign, ceramic or esthetic braces, lingual braces, and traditional high performance metal braces.  We understand what it takes to provide care in a comfortable and welcoming environment, making it a pleasant orthodontic experience.

Dr. Ashley joined the team in 2016, and Dr. Keith joined in the summer of 2017 upon completion of his post-doctoral training.  Dr. Ashley and Dr. Keith were both trained in “Advanced Education of Orthodontics and Dentofacial Orthopedics,” which proved to be incredibly valuable in the diagnosis, treatment planning, and actual treatment of both simple and complex cases alike.
