Dr. Gretchen Schnepper, DDS, MS

Dr. Gretchen Schnepper has been practicing orthodontics in Vancouver, WA since 2007. She graduated from and completed an additional 27 month, advanced educational program in orthodontics at Loma Linda University. Dr. Schnepper is rated with Invisalign® as being a Diamond Provider. She is one of only two practitioners with this ranking in the entire Portland/Vancouver metro area.


Invisalign clear aligners fit your life — they don’t interrupt it.

What is Invisalign®?
Invisalign® clear aligners are removable instead of being cemented or bonded to your teeth like traditional braces. That means you’ll be able to take them out to eat, brush your teeth, floss or for social occasions. Overall, Invisalign® braces are more pleasing aesthetically and have lower maintenance requirements, while being just as effective at correcting dental problems. Plus, the treatment times are up to 50% faster with technological advances to the Invisalign system, including SmartTrack® material. Our patients know that every visit is going to be comfortable and fun. We want to be your Invisalign provider in Vancouver WA, so contact us today for more information!

Straight Teeth in Less Time

Advanced 3D Technology for Damon System Braces and Treatment Techniques

Smiles are a big part of every person’s identity. We take great pride in being part of this creative process, helping our patients achieve a healthy and natural looking smile that they’ll be able to enjoy for a lifetime.

With Insignia™ Advanced Smile Design™ treatment solution, we’re able to offer our patients a truly exceptional orthodontic treatment, as it allows us to design a treatment plan developed specifically to everyone’s unique facial structure and dental anatomy. 

How is this different to other orthodontic treatments?

When beginning Insignia treatment, Dr. Gretchen first scans the patient’s mouth, generating a virtual 3D model of their smile structure. Unlike most orthodontic cases, this 3D model creates a visual representation of patients’ anticipated results, giving them a clear vision of their new, beautiful smile transformation before treatment even begins. Insignia brackets and wires are 100% customized to fit your teeth and only your teeth.

As a result, patients’ get faster treatment times and fewer office visits than traditional braces.

Whether you prefer braces, Invisalign or want a clear option like Damon Clear with Insignia, we believe you should choose the treatment that is completely custom-tailored for your unique teeth and smile.

If you’re thinking about orthodontic treatment for yourself or your teen, please contact Dr. Gretchen’s office to schedule an appointment. We’ll be happy to answer any questions you may have about braces and the Insignia orthodontic system.

Why Invisalign®?

Virtually invisible: most won’t even notice that you’re wearing them, making Invisalign a seamless fit with your lifestyle

Greater comfort: easy to brush and floss, no metal wires or bands and no dietary restrictions

Up to 50% faster: on average it takes about 12 months for adults, and treatment time for a teen varies and will be determined by Dr. Schnepper

Custom-made: customized options for each patient’s smile and a comfortable fit

Unique feature for teens: clear aligners contain compliance indicators that fade from blue to clear to help gauge wear time

Credible: no other clear aligner is backed by the data and experience of 5 million cases, and the number of Invisalign smiles grows daily

Rewarding: Invisalign has a more than 96% patient satisfaction rate.

Dr. Schnepper has an eye for beauty, I have gone so far as to call her an artist. She was able to use Invisalign to improve the functionality and appearance of my teeth. I am very happy with the outcome of my treatment.” (Erika C.)

Braces are life changing!

close up dr photo 3-2014

Every once in a while I come across a review that hits me in the feels. 

This review is one that got me right where my heart is. There are so many reasons why we do what we do here at the modern orthodontist.  Some patients have strong clinical reasons for needing braces and correction. Some patients have a very clear esthetic reason for wanting braces. Most of the time patients have both, a clinical need as well as esthetic.  As a side note, I googled what “esthetic” means… I think you’ll appreciate this as much as I did…. “a set of principles underlying and guiding the work of a particular artist or artistic movement”  That is exactly what Dr Schnepper is. She’s an artist who creates beautiful smiles! That’s so cool!

As you read the review below you will see that these kids had both. What a life changing experience for them to have braces and feel so much more confident in themselves.  I hope you enjoy the review as much as we did.

 

“For those looking for a caring and family friendly orthodontist then I highly recommend modern orthodontist.  I had children who had teeth that were so bad that they were embarrassed to smile for any kind of photos. The people here treated my children with kindness and compassion and now a days that’s becoming a rarity.  I will always be a champion for them and recommend them highly.”

 

Do you know someone who needs braces? share this blog with them.  At the modern orthodontist we deliver exceptional care and connect with each of our patients. When you’re here, you’re family!

love from the whole staff 😉
