Your Brentwood Orthodontist

Dr. Kristen Hann

Dr. Kristen Hann earned her Bachelor of Arts in Applied Sciences and Doctorate of Dental Surgery degrees from the University of the Pacific in San Francisco. She also received a certificate in the specialty of orthodontics from the prestigious University of Pennsylvania School of Dental Medicine.

In the three years of her specialty training, Dr. Kristen diagnosed, planned treatment, and treated comprehensive orthodontic, limited and adjunctive orthodontic, and orthognathic surgery cases for children and adults. She utilized many techniques and appliances including expanders, temporary anchorage devices, traditional braces, self-ligating braces, esthetic braces, lingual braces, and Invisalign.

Dr. Kristen co-treated many cases with other members of her dental team. These cases included utilizing orthodontics to correct periodontal defects and resolving periodontal problems related to occlusal trauma, splint therapy for TMD before and during treatment, and aligning teeth prior to extensive restorative therapy to enable easier tooth preparation and healthier distribution of forces. Dr. Kristen also treated patients with cleft lip and palate and craniofacial anomalies along with the team at Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia.

Dr. Frank Hann

Dr. Frank Hann thought he would grow up to be a pediatrician before he realized how much he loved working with patients to create healthy, functional, and beautiful smiles that last a lifetime. After majoring in biology and enjoying his time as a member of the Chi Phi fraternity, he went on to dental school and a residency in orthodontics before eventually founding Hann Orthodontics. Dr. Frank loves serving the Brentwood community, and particularly enjoys working with young people, encouraging them to participate in their own treatment plan in order to make the most of it. He believes in always doing his very best work, and treats every patient as family from the moment they walk through the office door.

Next to his wonderful family, he's most proud of his orthodontic career and the thousands of smiles he’s improved over the last 30 years. Inside and outside the office, Dr. Frank keeps himself busy – he plays tennis, is a regular churchgoer, and loves to watch sports and movies.

He treasures the time he’s able to spend with his family and friends, and Dr. Frank raced sports cars for more than 20 years. When you come to Hann Orthodontics, you not only get the best in orthodontic care, you get the coolest in orthodontists.

Brentwood Braces: Your Reliable Orthodontic Solution

Traditional braces remain one of the most effective tools in orthodontic care. Comprising either metal or ceramic brackets affixed to the teeth and connected by wires and small rubber bands, these components synergistically exert gentle pressure. This pressure, when adjusted regularly by our specialists, gradually guides your teeth into their desired positions.

Braces in Brentwood are particularly adept at addressing complex dental issues. Their efficiency in aligning teeth and closing gaps often surpasses that of alternative treatments, potentially shortening the overall treatment duration. Moreover, traditional braces don't require the advanced technology or costly apparatus associated with newer methods, making them a cost-effective choice for orthodontic care in Brentwood.

Invisalign in Brentwood: The Leading Alternative to Braces

Invisalign has gained immense popularity among both patients and orthodontists as the premier substitute for traditional braces. Rather than employing brackets and wires, the Invisalign system in Brentwood utilizes a sequence of transparent, removable aligners to incrementally straighten your teeth.

Crafted from a soft plastic material, these aligners are custom-fitted to snugly cover your teeth. To ensure your teeth move in the intended direction, you'll typically need to replace these transparent trays every 1-2 weeks with the next set in the series. Adherence to the prescribed guidelines is crucial; aligners must be worn for 20-22 hours daily to achieve optimal results. Failure to comply can not only hinder progress but also extend the treatment period.

While Invisalign is highly effective for treating many common orthodontic issues, it may not be suitable for more complex cases. A complimentary consultation at Hann Orthodontics will help ascertain your eligibility for Invisalign treatment.
