It’s understandable to be concerned about coronavirus (COVID-19). Please know that our practice has always implemented infection control procedures to prevent the spread of diseases including coronavirus. As you may already be aware, the Ohio State Dental Board has mandated a closure of all dental and orthodontic offices due to the coronavirus pandemic. To ensure the safety of all of our patients and staff members, we have temporarily closed our offices. We apologize for the inconvenience.

We hope that we will be able to resume patient care in the near future. We realize that our office closure may be disappointing for many of our patients who are scheduled to get started with their orthodontic treatment or for those of you who are scheduled to have your braces removed in the next few weeks. We will do everything possible to accommodate your schedule and to ensure your safety. We will be contacting you in the near future to reschedule your appointment. Thank you for your patience and understanding.

If you have any questions or concerns, a staff member will be available by phone (614-279-6481) from 9am to 1pm, until 3/20/20.  After that date OUR OFFICE IS TEMPORARILY CLOSED.

We will periodically check voicemails until we can resume our normal business hours. Billing and appointment questions may also be e-mailed to admin@globalsmiles.us and frontdesk@globalsmiles.us or visit us online for office updates. 


We hope that you and your family stay safe and healthy, and we look forward to seeing you soon.


Because you and your SMILE

are going places!

Our Approach and Philosophy

  • We will believe in conservation and a holistic approach.  That is why we believe in saving teeth and will only request teeth to be taken out when necessary.

  • We will start treatment at the appropriate age given the circumstances; no aggressive or premature treatment in this office.

  • We know your child's education is very important. Dr. Mendieta will do his best to schedule his appointments around and after school hours. 

  • Message to adults: You will not feel like an overgrown kid in our office!

  • Our staff is really nice; no attitudes here and we accept Delta, CareSource, Molina,  and some forms of Medicaid!

Meet Our Staff

Dr. Mendieta


Dr. Mendieta has lived and visited many places around the world before meeting his love, Tina. They both live locally, here in Columbus, with their puggle, Lulu.

Dr. Mendieta received his bachelor’s degree from UCLA and went to dental school at the University of the Pacific, in San Francisco. After practicing general dentistry, Dr. Mendieta became an orthodontist upon completion of an orthodontic speciality program at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas.

"I have a passion for travel and have lived in New Zealand and Spain. I have been fortunate to have visited 24 countries so far! I speak fluent Spanish and enjoy reading. My past experiences in foreign countries and literature preferences have led me to have a deeper appreciation and understanding for people of diverse backgrounds. Rowing on the UCLA Crew team solidified the importance of teamwork. I enjoy staying active by running, swimming, biking, and attempting to play tennis. You might see me running around Antrim. :-)


Dr. Mendieta was recently named President of the Cleveland Society of Orthodontists! Congratulations

to Dr. Mendieta on a well-deserved honor!

Happy Patients

I have finally found an office that I love!!! My search to have my bottom teeth fixed was way too complex! And every dental office literally wanted to charge me an arm and a leg!!!! Ha! Dr. Mendieta took the time to spend more then 3 seconds with me and thoroughly explained my treatment - a first from many of the offices that I visited! The staff is amazing - full of good energy and smiles! And best of all... it's affordable!!! I'm a single mom and these bills are no joke! I'm happy to finally get my straight teeth and have $$$ in my pocket! :)
I'll definitely be taking my kids here when it's time for them - and recommend them to everyone!
