He received his certification in Orthodontics from the University of Pennsylvania in Philadelphia, PA in 1977.
More adults than ever are seeking straighter teeth – perhaps due to advancements in modern dentistry that allow for more discreet and less invasive orthodontic treatments.
The American Association of Orthodontists recommends that the first orthodontic visit take place at 7 years of age since some children at this age begin to reveal signs of a jaw and or tooth imbalances that can lead to serious issues later in life.
Approximately 25 million adults in the U.S. have obstructive sleep apnea (OSA), which can cause them to stop breathing hundreds of times a night for anywhere from a few seconds to more than a minute.
Snoring is a sound that occurs during sleep when soft tissue in the upper airway vibrates as you breathe. Snoring is not natural and unless you are suffering from a cold or congestion, you should breathe effortlessly when you are awake or asleep.
For patients with disorders of the temporomandibular joint (TMJ), splint (night guard) therapy can often deliver much-needed relief. A properly adjusted occlusal splint does more than just protect the teeth.
So thankful for the care they have provided to me and my girls! Highly recommend Dr. Harrell.
Both my daughters were treated by Dr. Harrell; quads, braces, etc. I too just recently completed my treatment. He made wearing braces at 47 easy. Dr. Harrell is a wizard when it comes to creating a beautiful smile! His staff are well trained and make you feel at home when you walk in the door. Our family will always use Dr. Harrell!"
Dr. Harrell is a really nice person. He always makes sure that he doesn't hurt you while he is putting the braces in. Today I went there and he looked at my teeth and he gave me a high five. He said they looked great. Dr. Harrell is really nice.
6 years of treatment and I'm finally complete. Dr. Harrell's office is filled with love. I would get so excited every time I had a checkup knowing (1. I get to leave school early lol) but mostly because I get to see my girls. (other than Dr. H, I love to see him too)!! I'm 17 years old and HIGHLY recommend you coming to Dr. Harrell's office. Ya won't regret it!!
Both of my girls, ages 6 and 10 see Dr. Harrell and we love him and his staff. Everyone is super friendly and we are loving the results!
I had braces, and surgery for screws to correct problems, which were later taken out. I had bad headaches before my braces, but this corrected my problem. I haven't had a headache since. Thanks, Dr. Harrell!
Dr. Harrell is top notch. He has helped my wife and I many times. His staff always goes above and beyond to make sure all our needs are met. A++++
The staff were delightful and friendly. I had been doing research about my snoring problems. Dr. Harrell went above and beyond explaining my options to me. He is very knowledgeable and I would HIGHLY recommend him to anyone!
This office provides a comfortable environment for children and adults. Dr. Harrell does splint therapy, sleep appliances, as well as orthodontic treatment. I highly recommend them!
