If you’ve been thinking about Invisalign®, now is the perfect time to schedule an appointment!

Does your smile beam with confidence? Are your teeth shifting? Never wore your retainer? Take advantage of our Invisalign® Special!

The Invisalign® process has been proven effective in clinical research and in orthodontic practices nationwide. However, only a certified orthodontist like Dr. Schnepper can undertake this procedure. At your appointment, we’ll evaluate where your smile is today and confirm that you are a good candidate for Invisalign® treatment.

Contact our office today to schedule your complimentary consultation (360-260-5113). The offer ends Nov 30, 2018. 


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.

4th Annual Spring Art Show featuring our local middle schools

The Art Show opens on Friday April 28th

Opening night will be from 5pm – 8pm.  Light hors d’oeuvres will be served.

Art will remain on display until May 26th

 

April 28th will be a night for the middle school kids to remember.  They will walk into our modern practice and see their art displayed for all to see. How many kids their age can say they are “showing artists?” Well, now these students from our local middle schools can say they are. I say this qualifies for bragging rights!!!  The students are working hard and will surely wow our guests with the one of a kind masterpieces they are creating. One art teacher contacted us to ask if her student can display some small sculptures he has created out of beeswax (from the bee’s he raises!) and of course we said YES! We can’t wait to see what he is creating 😉  This is what our Art Show is all about. We love showcasing how young artists use various mediums, in various ways, to create a wonderfully diverse show.

We are so excited to partner with Jason Lee, Thomas Jefferson, Alki, Vancouver School of Arts and Academics, Mcloughlin, Gaiser Middle School and Cedar Tree Classical Christian.

This is a great family event so bring ’em all down. The more the merrier. We want to show these students what hard work can produce. So invite your friends, co workers, family, etc to come to The Modern Orthodontist on opening night or any time within the subsequent 30 days and you will be amazed at the art you see.   FYI, some of the art that will be displayed will be for sale.  100% of the proceeds go to the artists.

                   SAVE THE DATE 

  • Friday April 28th from 5-8pm
  • 2702 NE 78th ST. Suite 106, Vancouver. 98662
  • light hors d’oeuvres served
  • specified art will be for sale.
  • Art remains on walls of our practice until May 26th. If you can’t make opening night don’t worry, we got you covered 😉 Come by any time during business hours.

Hope to see you all there!

Girl Scout Troop comes to visit The Modern Orthodontist!

Welcome Troop 40968!

We love opening our doors to the community!  It was so fun to have a local Girl Scout troop here to learn and explore and create with us. This is such a fun thing for us to do. It’s connecting us to those around us and it’s educating our community.  The first question we asked the troop was “who knows what an orthodontist is?” and their hands shot up! Most already had an idea of what an orthodontist was and so it was fun to build on their already budding knowledge and create a moment where they were able to increase their “know” and build on their foundation.  It was an evening of fun!

1st stop… lets go back to the clinic and have a pow-wow! and while doing that let’s discuss impressions and what we use them for in our office and how we do them.  In fact, lets all take an impression… OF OUR FINGER! ;)) here we go….

3rd stop… back to the clinic where we all got to pretend to be the Doctor and put on her coat, gloves and (clean) face masks 😉  (who knew this would be such a hit!?)

Final stop… lets have some education on teeth, flossing, braces, your smile, your confidence, your beauty, all the things that make you amazing! ….. and since we are into teeth…. lets start with your teeth ;))

What a great evening spent with this troop who are interested in learning something new 😉

Calling all artists!

“The human brain is built for art appreciation.”  The Wall Street Journal reports it’s a “natural biological process.”


The Modern Orthodontist (Dr. Schnepper and team) is calling all artists to create a piece of art  for our 2016 Calendar.

How cool would it be to have your art work displayed in our annual TMO calendar?  All submissions will be included. If you are selected to be featured on one of the months, not only will you win a prize, but you will also get enough calendars to give to all your classmates.

Please make sure you create your art (all medias accepted!) on a 8×10 page in landscape format. You can either bring it by the office or email it to vicki@themodernorthodontist.com

Because art is great for the brain and because your brain is used every single day, makes perfect sense that Dr. Schnepper would want to encourage that relationship and help you feel inspired and your art appreciated by being published in the TMO calendar!  It’s such a great feeling and experience to see your “work” displayed in such a fun and useful format.

I say we listen to the Wall Street Journal and get our art on!
