He passed the ABO exam in February of 2020 and is a Board Certified Orthodontist.

Before becoming an orthodontist, Dr. Hallums served three years in the US Army in the Infantry with the 101st Airborne. Dr. Hallum received his undergraduate degrees in Criminal Justice and Psychology, then drove a hazmat tank vehicle for 10 years before meeting his wife, Nicole. After getting married, Dr. Hallums decided to pursue a different passion: dentistry.
“Although my path to orthodontics is not traditional, I share the same passion for orthodontics and helping kids achieve perfect smiles as do others for whom orthodontics has been a lifelong dream.” Dr. Hallums said.
