Dr. Charles Morin

Welcome to Lawton Kids Dentistry & Braces in Lawton, OK

Dr. Charles K. Morin (a.k.a. Dr. Chuck) received his Doctor of Dental Medicine (D.M.D.) degree from the University of Alabama School of Dentistry in 1980. After fulfilling a two-year National Health Service Corps scholarship obligation in the Indian Health Service, where he developed a keen interest in pediatric dental health, Dr. Chuck completed a twenty-four month residency in pediatric dentistry at the Medical University of South Carolina, College of Dental Medicine. During this time, he discovered that learning and teaching complement one another, and, as a result of his interest in teaching, Dr. Chuck chose to become a full-time academician at the Baylor College of Dentistry where he was an assistant professor in the Department of Pediatric Dentistry from 1984 to 1987.

While managing the oral health of his pediatric patients, Dr. Chuck quickly realized that developing malocclusions were a big part of the patients’ overall dental health. He made a personal decision to provide comprehensive orthodontic treatment only after fulfilling the requirements of a graduate program in the specialty of orthodontics. Following a three-year orthodontic residency (1987-90), during which he completed a Masters’ Degree thesis, Dr. Chuck received a Certificate in Orthodontics and a Master of Science (M.Sc.) degree from the University of Manitoba, School of Dentistry.

Dr. Chuck next established a solo private practice in Colorado where he served the community in a unique role as a pediatric dentist/orthodontist dual specialist from 1990 to 2008. During this time period, he co_mpleted the board certification process in both specialties (American Board of Pediatric Dentistry/1993 and American Board of Orthodontics/2001), which represents a commitment to the highest standards of knowledge and clinical skill.

Since 2008, Dr. Chuck has practiced pediatric dentistry and orthodontics in a variety of clinical settings and locations including dental missions to Nicaragua and Haiti. He joined Dr. Wells’ practice in 2015 and has enjoyed the relationships he has developed with his colleagues, the wonderful staff and patients. He is married with a blended family consisting of five children and three grandchildren. Dr. Chuck’s hobbies include triathlete training (swimming, biking and running), camping and hiking with family, bowhunting, and golf. He is looking forward to serving the kids’ dental needs in southwestern OK for many more years.
