playing to win for our community
At Gorman & Bunch Orthodontics, we believe everyone deserves the chance to show off a healthy, good looking smile — even those who might never be able to afford it on their own.

And so we’re excited to launch Stats 4 Smiles™ to offer families in need with scholarships for free orthodontic care — braces and Invisalign — through all of our seven offices in Carmel, Westfield, West Carmel/Zionsville, Fishers, Kokomo, Marion, and Wabash.

Free Braces - Stats 4 Smiles


We know that a great looking smile has the power to dramatically enhance one’s quality of life. It gives hope, boosts overall health, and helps raise self-confidence.

And so we team up with local athletes to change lives through the gift of a smile. Each time one of our partner players win, score big, or make a big play during a game, we gladly donate our time, skill, and resources to treat a deserving child in Central Indiana at no cost. And we can’t wait to see how those newfound smiles benefit our local communities.


While we would love to assist everyone in financial need, we only consider candidates who meet the following guidelines:

  • Are between 11 and 19 years old.
  • Live within one hour driving distance of one of our offices.
  • Have good dental hygiene practices and received a dental hygiene checkup in the past 6 months.
  • Have a functional and/or esthetic need for braces.
  • Currently be enrolled in school with satisfactory performance.
  • Exhibit a positive attitude.
  • Follow and abide by treatment plan set forth by the orthodontist and attached contract.
  • Demonstrate a willingness to be involved in the community through extracurricular activities and/or volunteer service.
  • Have family income that does not exceed 200% of the federal poverty level — see below.

  • review rating 5  Personal and professional, everyone always takes great care of my sensitive mouth teen! This is our first experience with needing orthodontia, when it’s time for my youngest to get braces, we’ll choose this place again in a heartbeat. From the team up front to the team in the back, everyone is so nice and yet so efficiently on task, it is quite impressive. They have reasonable pricing and are willing to help with a payment plan. Keep up the great work!!

    review rating 5  This 64 year old had teeth that had begun to overlap in my adult years, which was attributed to having 4 good teeth removed as a child for "Crowded teeth". I waited to fund Invisalign until incurring no penalty for taking IRA funds, other than taxes. I was fortunate to be referred to Dr. Jason Bunch by my dentist, Dr. Jack Nicewander. Dr. Bunch and his Carmel, IN office staff see numerous children and young adults, but welcome the young at heart as well. I trust them and find them accommodating, efficient, professional and compassionate.

    thumb Joyce Eggleston

    review rating 5  We were very pleased with the staff and services at Gorman & Bunch. From the beginning, they were very friendly and made us feel comfortable with our first ortho visit. Dr. Carly was very nice and attentive. We ended up with braces for my son on the first visit and they were quick and thorough and made our experience very positive. Definitely would recommend them! They are awesome!

    thumb Donia Shackelford

    review rating 5  I can’t say enough great things about this office. I am legal guardian of my sister and she is going through Invisalign with them… She’s almost done and I am amazed by the results. I also go there for continued orthodontic care because orthodontic retention is for life! So glad I have such great people to care for our teeth!!!

    thumb Veronica Boyle
  • review rating 5  I just started my first week with the Invisalign. The staff has been extremely friendly and helpful through every step. Dr Carly’s initial evaluation of my case was extremely thorough and the options were explained in detail to help make an informed decision. They’ve certainly exceeded my expectation and from the looks of it, they do a great job with their younger patients as well!

    thumb Patrick May

    review rating 5  Amazing office! My daughter was home from college and had an orthodontic emergency. She was not a previous patient. Dr Moran was kind enough to see her. The entire staff was amazing. I would never go anywhere else!

    thumb Sharon Hoover

    review rating 5  Cannot say enough good things about this practice! I've been to Westfield and Carmel locations, both are beautiful with helpful and friendly staff. Dr Bunch is experienced, knowledgeable, and truly cares about his patients and strives to get the best results possible for each one!

    thumb Karen Caudle

    review rating 5  Fantastic staff who put the person (and their teeth!) at the center of the experience. Child-friendly waiting areas. I've had nothing but good experiences over my nearly 10 years with Gorman and Bunch. Cannot recommend highly enough!
