If you want a straighter smile but are uncomfortable with the idea of wearing traditional braces, clear aligners can be an excellent solution. The advancements in modern orthodontic technology have made it possible for orthodontists to inconspicuously straighten teeth that are crowded, protruding, or widely spaced and move them into a position that is more pleasing to the eye. In just months of discreet treatment, patients can finally achieve the smile of their dreams in a way that is unobtrusive to their appearance or lifestyle. Aside from being more esthetic, clear aligner technology offers other significant advantages. Through computer-aided design and CBCT/Cone Beam 3-D imaging, Dr. Harrell will create precise three-dimensional planning of tooth movements. This allows Dr. Harrell to carefully customize treatment along with the patient prior to the device manufacturing process. There is a difference in treatments and approaches and you should always search out the most qualified and best-fit Doctor and methodology for your desired results.
Though clear aligners are found in orthodontic (and dental) offices all over the world, patient results can vary dramatically between providers. Clear aligners can be an incredible tool; but in the end, it’s just that – a tool. The treating doctor is ultimately the architect designing your smile and bite.
Dr. Harrell’s Pioneering work in 3D orthodontic imaging, among the prestigious credentials has lead him to take a part-time position as a Professor at the University of Alabama at Birmingham, where he is responsible for the training of outstanding, world-class students who are studying to become certified orthodontists. To complement his over 40 years of clinical experience, he brings an incredible passion for new technologies and the attention to detail and service that is seldom found in today’s world with each and every patient he treats.

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!
