Get Your New Smile From the Best
See why choosing us for your smile is the best choice.
Dr. Smith, Dr. Heymann and Dr. Skillestad are orthodontists. Orthodontists are dentists first. Out of 100 dental school graduates, on average, only six go on to become orthodontists.
To practice orthodontics, Dr. Smith, Dr. Heymann and Dr. Skillestad spent 11 years in training (four years of college, four years of dental school, and three years of orthodontics residency).
The orthodontic student spends three years learning the skills needed to manage tooth movement and to guide facial development.
From the moment you contact our office to your final retainer check appointment, our goal at Smith & Heymann Orthodontics is your complete satisfaction. Dr. Smith, Dr. Heymann or Dr. Skillestad will review your photos and X-rays to find the best way to treat your individual needs.
Then you’ll choose the type of braces you want—traditional metal, clear ceramic, or Invisalign.
Our goal at Smith & Heymann Orthodontics is not just to give you the smile of your dreams. We want you to leave our office after every appointment knowing that you got the best possible care.
Gone are the days of painful headgear, clunky bands on every tooth, and overly tight stainless steel wires. Today's orthodontic treatment is much more comfortable than it used to be. This is because of shape-memory NiTi wires.
With the same technology that NASA uses, NiTi wires exert a continuous force against the teeth to move them in the right direction. This gets rid of the need for wire tightening. This means you spend less time in braces, and the time you do spend is more comfortable.
At Smith & Heymann Orthodontics we take pride in making the process of straightening your teeth as comfortable as possible.
[Dr.] is up-to-date on the latest in orthodontic treatment and braces technology.
Smith & Heymann Orthodontics is the location for modern orthodontic treatment. We offer aesthetic options like ceramic braces and Invisalign.
We also use mini implants and diode laser for faster and more efficient tooth movement and faster treatment times.
Everyone dreams of a medical office that takes pride in flexibility. Yes, we offer flexible appointment scheduling and flexible treatment options, but we also offer flexible payment options.
After we’ve determined your insurance coverage and filed it for you, we'll sit down and come up with a monthly payment plan that fits your budget. You can also get a discount if you pay in full on the front end.
Our Durham, Mebane, Roxboro, and Chapel Hill locations are positioned right in the heart of town.
That means great orthodontic care is only a few minutes from your home, work, or school.
