Our highly skilled team attends continuing education courses regularly to learn the newest technologies and procedures in orthodontics. Combined, our team has more than one hundred years of experience in the dental field that we pass on through our treatment and business philosophies.

High Tech

Our team uses all digital imaging, computerized cephalometry, and digital X-rays for our in-house records. We provide excellent diagnosis while saving our patients time with 70% less radiation exposure. We are one of the few offices in the nation that produce over 90% of the orthodontic appliances we utilize. Our brackets are never recycled and are proudly made in America. Our sterilization techniques far exceed the standard set by the CDC and OSHA, and all instruments are sealed before sterilization and are not opened until ready to use at chairside. We utilize Align Technologies software to the fullest to obtain exceptional Invisalign® results.

Office Environment

Both locations have been designed and built by Dr. Jerrold Hennes specifically for orthodontics. They display his passion for collecting and sharing with his patients. The Vista location houses the extensive comic book art and superhero collection, and the Poway location houses movie memorabilia and an animation cel collection, many with original signatures. Both have a full-size arcade, set on free play, for the enjoyment of all. We continually have contests and games throughout the year to engage our patients. Our reception area offers complimentary Wi-Fi, a coffee bar, and has popular movies licensed to play throughout the day.


The creation of wonderful smiles has continued for over two decades. Our practice continues to grow due to the referrals from our patients. We have treated many dentists and their families. Before and after photos are available for all types of malocclusions. Dr. Jerrold Hennes has been voted by his peers as one of the top orthodontists in San Diego Magazines for seven years in a row.


We offer complimentary initial consultation, second opinions, and observation appointments. We provide “all-inclusive” fees with no hidden charges for records, retainers, or emergencies. We provide flexible financing while accepting most insurances. Our fees are based upon treatment time, therefore braces or Invisalign treatment have the same fees. Family discounts are honored.
