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.
