Orthodontic Process

  1. Initial evaluation and consultation at no charge
    A referral from your family dentist is not necessary for this exam.

  2. Convenient office location with ample parking 
    Our office is located in Hawthorn Woods, with an entrance off of Midlothian, near the Goddard School and Inland Bank.   You will enjoy visiting our warm, friendly state-of-the-art facilities.  We are proud to provide easy access and ample parking at our location. Our facility was designed and built with your comfort in mind. We strive to exceed your expectations and want your visits to our office to be as pleasant and enjoyable as possible.

  3. Personalized Care
    We strive to customize your treatment and the enhancement of your smile. Each treatment plan is individualized to suit your needs.

  4. Exceptional customer service from a highly trained team
    We only recruit the most highly skilled staff who love what they do. We hold regular training meetings to make sure our patients are receiving the best service and care available Frequent continuing education, team building, and strong backgrounds of experience set our team apart in our ability to deliver a great experience to our patients.

  5. Cutting Edge Technology
    We bring you the best new technology available in orthodontics today. We are constantly striving to enhance our treatment methods in an attempt to improve the faces, smiles, and bites for all of our patients. We use the highest quality materials and the most modern techniques available to give you the smile you have always dreamed of. Our average treatment time for full braces is 18 – 20 months.
    • Self ligating brackets – The Damon™ System – and high technology archwires work together to minimize the removal of permanent teeth and thereby, shorten treatment time.
    • Fully digital radiographs – allow immediate capture of diagnostic information with less radiation exposure as much as 90%.
    • Digital imaging and computerized patient education tools – Each of our operatories has a computer workstation for digital charting, x-ray viewing, and patient education.
    • State of the Art Sterilization – All instruments are sterilized between patients at the highest possible standards using the most up-to-date equipment available.

  6. Emphasis on early interceptive treatment
    The American Association of Orthodontists recommends that your child get an orthodontic check up no later than age seven. While your child's teeth may appear straight, there could be a problem only an orthodontist can detect. Of course, the check-up may reveal that your child's bite is fine with no treatment being needed. For each patient who needs treatment there's an ideal time for treatment to begin in order to achieve the best results. If early treatment is indicated, it gives Dr. Varghese a chance to:
    • guide jaw growth
    • lower the risk of trauma to front teeth
    • correct harmful habits
    • improve appearance and self-esteem
    • guide permanent teeth into a more favorable positions

  7. A fun and upbeat atmosphere for patients and parents
    We have a family oriented practice and are dedicated to providing energetic and fun-loving service for each patient. Much care was taken in the design of our new office to make each of your visits enjoyable and a truly positive experience. 

  8. Flexible financing options
    Orthodontic treatment is an excellent investment in the overall dental, medical, and psychological well being of both children and adults. Dollar for dollar when you consider the lifetime benefits of orthodontic treatment, it is truly a great value. We are committed to developing a financing option that fits within your budget. 

  9. Insurance Acceptance
    We are experienced in working with insurance companies. We work with all types of insurance policies and want to be sure you receive all the benefits to which your family is entitled.

  10. Adult braces and Accelerated Adult Braces
    Orthodontic treatment can be successful at any age and about 30% of all patients today are adults. We also offer Accelerated Osteogenic Orthodontics for adults (also know as Wilckodontics), a combined periodontal and orthodontic treatment that will dramatically shorten your orthodontic treatment time. With this procedure, most orthodontic cases in adults can be completed 3 to 4 times faster than would be possible with conventional orthodontics.

  11. Family Discounts
    When a patient becomes part of our practice, we feel a responsibility to the entire family. We will examine and monitor younger siblings at no charge until the time is right for them to start treatment. When any additional family member begins treatment there will be a $200.00 or more reduction in their total treatment fee

"Friendly staff, very clean offices, thorough explanation of services and pro-active maintenance tips, no pain...all you could ask for in a dental team! Thanks"

I came to Hawthorn Woods Family Dentistry, since I had problems with my gums and overall dental health. Dr. Copeland provided a consultation and recommended a long-term treatment plan, which included porcelain veneers and improving my overall dental health in the course of two years. I could not believe the transformation and I enjoyed being part of the process!
Dr. Copeland performed the dentistry for my porcelain veneers, which look natural and help keep my gums healthy. Dr. Copeland gave me the smile I never had, but always wanted and did so in a caring and professional manner.
The staff at Hawthorn Woods Family Dentistry wanted to make sure I was happy and healthy and were accommodating to my schedule by providing appointments that worked for me.
What I like most about Hawthorn Woods Family Dentistry is that the aftercare and preparation were just as important to Dr. Copeland and his staff as the actual dentistry for the final fitting and placement of the veneers.

I went to your office to get a tooth extracted. I wanted to let you know what a wonderful experience I had! Jeffrey Copeland explained everything to me, helped me relax, feel at ease. The best part- I didn’t feel any pain! Never before have I felt more relaxed getting dental work! His assistant, Kristen, was just as comforting.

My sisters, Karen McGuinn and Sue Bowers, are patients of yours and highly recommended I come to you. The best advice I ever received from them!

I can’t say enough about Dr. Copeland. I’m going to recommend everyone I know to your practice!
