Dr. Wadler attended Tulane University in New Orleans where he met his wife Dede. After graduating from Loyola College of Dentistry in Chicago, Dr. Wadler did a two year residency at the University of Texas Dental Branch in Houston, and received a certificate in Orthodontics and a Masters in Oral Science. In 1973, he started his Orthodontic practice in Southwest Houston.

Dr. Wadler is a leader and innovator in the orthodontic community. He lectures on Orthodontics, SureSmile and Invisalign to various dental groups and is a guest lecturer at the Orthodontic department at University of Texas Dental Branch, in Houston. Dr.Wadler is a Counsel Member (Consultant) for Invisalign® and Invisalign Teen™, and he is an Educator Consultant for the Meilora Group (SureSmile). His proudest accomplishment, however, is his family: daughters Melissa, Lindsay and Elizabeth and son Jarrett.

Dr. Wadler spent much of his leisure time coaching his children’s sports teams. He now enjoys hanging out with his grandchildren. One of his biggest thrills is having his oldest daughter, Melissa, practice with him. When not with his family or at the office he can be seen playing lead guitar with his band “Midlife Crisis and the Hot-flashes.” This is very evident when you visit his office in Bellaire – You can’t miss all the music memorabilia on the walls throughout the office!
Dr. Melissa Wadler Bloome joined Bellaire Family Orthodontics in September of 2003, but has been with the office assisting and learning the ropes since she was in middle school! From a very young age, she learned the importance of a healthy smile and has made it her priority to help others improve both their dental health and self-confidence. Dr. Wadler Bloome strives to treat each one of her patients with kindness and the highest quality of care.

Dr. Wadler Bloome graduated from the Kinkaid School in 1992 and from Emory University in Atlanta, Georgia in 1996 as a Phi Beta Kappa, with a Bachelor of Arts Degree. She came back to Houston to attend the University of Texas Dental Branch and graduated second in her class. She practiced general dentistry in beautiful New Mexico before doing a residency program and receiving her Master’s Degree in Orthodontics from the University of Texas Dental Branch in Houston.

Dr. Wadler Bloome enjoys spending time with her husband Dr. David Bloome, their son Jackson, and their daughter Ashley.
