At Fanning Orthodontics, we know a smile is as much about what’s on the outside as what’s on the inside. It’s all about getting to know patients for who they are, and the type of solutions they’re looking for.

our patients say

The staff at Fanning orthodontics is nothing short of amazing. The customer service is awesome. They have always made my daughter feel comfortable and welcome and made all her fears about her braces go away.


They make sure their patients are taken care of and will work around your schedule for those unexpected adjustments. Best of all, my biggest problem teeth were practically straightened out in only 2 months!


I gave up for a long time after 6 plus years of braces. Then I found some courage and some hope to get a smile I would be proud of. Dr Fanning gave me that smile. I got my braces off today and I can’t stop smiling (there may also have even been some tears of joy) Thank you so much!!!
