Our mission is to provide orthodontic excellence to each and every patient in an atmosphere of love and caring. This mission was instituted by Dr. McConnell’s father and remains the primary focus today.
Your scheduled appointment time has been reserved specifically for you. Please contact us at least 24-hours prior to your scheduled appointment if you need to cancel your appointment. We are aware that unforeseen events sometimes require missing an appointment. After missing your second appointment without notifying us 24 hours in advance, you are subject to being charged an additional fee.
Our office is committed to helping you maximize your insurance benefits. Because insurance policies vary, we can only estimate your coverage in good faith but cannot guarantee coverage due to the complexities of insurance contracts. Your estimated patient portion must be paid at the time of service. As a service to our patients, we will bill insurance companies for services and allow them 45 days to render payment. After 60 days, you are responsible for the entire balance, paid-in-full. If you have any questions, our courteous staff is always available to answer them.

McConnell Orthodontics is a continuation of Anderson Orthodontic Associates started by Dr. McConnell’s father, Dr. B.C. McConnell, Jr., who practiced orthodontics for 42 years before retiring in 2010. Dr. McConnell was very fortunate to work and learn from his father for several years prior to his retirement, thus ensuring the tradition of orthodontic excellence and stellar reputation continued into the next generation. The Team at McConnell Orthodontics is an integral part of the success of the practice. Each member is highly trained in their respective roles and deeply cares for each and every patient. Most of the Team has been on board at least 15 years, with a couple members approaching 40 years in the practice! McConnell Orthodontics is truly fortunate to have such a stable, wonderful, and experienced Team which benefits each and every patient.
