BOND Partners with Dr. Layne McCord
BOND Orthodontic Partners (“BOND”), today announced the partnership Yang Orthodontics in the San Francisco Peninsula.
DALLAS, TX and IDAHO FALLS, ID, April 24, 2023 – BOND Orthodontic Partners (“BOND”) today announced the continued expansion of its orthodontic-focused partnership organization with the addition of Adventure Orthodontics and their five locations across Southeast Idaho.
“We are thrilled to partner with Dr. Layne McCord and the entire team at Adventure Orthodontics,” said Jeff Gerlach, Chief Development Officer with BOND. “As a leading Face-Focused orthodontics practice, this relationship affirms our commitment to expanding our highly collaborative partnership model with the highest quality of orthodontic practices.”
BOND launched in 2022 as one of the only platforms to support the growth ambitions of orthodontists and empower partner-doctors. The addition of Adventure Orthodontics expands the fast-growing BOND platform, which has 15+ locations in markets across Arizona, California, Nevada, Washington, Idaho, and Montana.
At Adventure Orthodontics, they believe in an “Airway First, Face-Focused” approach where orthodontic care needs to accomplish three things. First, it must enhance the confidence our patient has in their smile. Second, treatment should improve a patient’s oral function and bite. And third, treatment decisions must not negatively impact a patient’s overall health. In fact, treatment should improve the patient’s overall health and continue to do so, even many years later.
Dr. McCord trained at the University of Louisville School of Dentistry and completed his Doctorate of Dentistry and an additional Master’s Degree in Oral Biology, where he graduated at the top of his class with honors. After Dental School, Dr. McCord went on to complete his orthodontic training at the University of Iowa, where he earned both a certificate in Orthodontics and a second Master’s Degree in Orthodontics. He has participated in several research projects, with his work published in the American Journal of Orthodontics. He is Spear Institute trained and loves working with the most difficult orthodontic cases.

About Adventure Orthodontics
At Adventure Orthodontics we believe that orthodontic care needs to accomplish three things. First, it must enhance the confidence our patient has with their smile. Second, treatment should improve a patient’s oral function and bite. Third, our treatment decisions must not negatively impact a patient’s overall health. In fact, our treatment should improve the patient’s overall health and continue to do so, even many years later.
With regard to orthodontic treatment, our core philosophy can be summed up as “Airway First, Face-Focused” and we believe that a person’s ability to breathe comfortably should be considered first. Research is showing that orthodontic treatment can significantly impact the architecture of a patient’s airway. For more information,
