Meet Dr. Hulse

Dr. Cameron Hulse grew up in Southern Orange County, California. While in his own orthodontic treatment in high school, Dr. Hulse realized how much his new smile changed him and decided he wanted to improve other’s teeth and smiles. Dr. Hulse pursued his dream and completed a BS in Zoology at Brigham Young University. Then he was selected to attend the University of Southern California’s prestigious School of Dentistry where he received his D.D.S.. After Dental School, he switched coasts and completed his orthodontic residency at Jacksonville University where he received his CAGS.

As an orthodontist it is only natural that Dr. Hulse loves to make people smile. Being the oldest of 6 kids, Dr. Hulse knows how to relate to every child and adult in a fun, yet caring way. He is very personable and treats every patient as if they are part of his family. Intense study has allowed Dr. Hulse to become one of California’s leading orthodontists. Beyond the exceptional skills and his seeking for perfection in every case, he is intent on making sure patients enjoy their journey through orthodontic treatment (definitely not your average orthodontist).

Dr. Hulse is a resident of Carlsbad and is constantly supporting our youth programs from basketball to band to scouts. He has donated thousands of dollars to our local schools and youth programs. Dr. Hulse feels it is a privilege to be associated with such great patients and their families here in Carlsbad. Dr. Hulse belongs to many dental organizations.
