The Hull & Coleman Difference

DBoy_Braces_1.jpgrs. Hull & Coleman understand why most people come to the orthodontist – to have a beautiful, attractive smile. Some dental professionals would have you believe that delivering that amazing smile isn't that difficult, but the reality is that it takes special training, detailed treatment planning and expertise to deliver a smile that is not only beautiful but that also gives each patient attractive facial balance, the ability to age gracefully and a healthy, functioning bite. You'll find that exceptional training and expertise with Drs. Hull & Coleman.

Dr. James Hull, Dr. Grant Coleman and Dr. Turner Hull treat each and every patient like the unique individual they are – with different desires and goals, different teeth and different facial features. And each treatment they design is customized to give each patient the most attractive smile possible in an efficient, comfortable and caring way. Drs. Hull & Coleman utilize modern technology and diagnostic methods to attempt to avoid treatments that involve the removal of permanent teeth or jaw surgery whenever possible.

So just what is the Hull & Coleman difference? It's the personalized care you deserve delivered in a warm, friendly environment. It's cutting-edge technology supported by years of experience. It's the comfort of a local, family-owned practice. The Hull & Coleman difference is why countless children, teens and adults have chosen our office to give them the smile they've always wanted.

Excellent Customer Service

Excellence in treatment alone is not enough. We believe in giving you superior customer service and want your orthodontic experience to be fantastic. From the people we employ to the design of our office, we have made every effort to make you feel welcome and at home. We offer fresh hot coffee, tea and cocoa in our reception room. We give our patients the doctors' home phone numbers in case of an after-hours emergency. We call you to check on you after you start your treatment. We do all these things and more to give you the best treatment experience possible.

Individualized Treatment

You can be confident that your treatment is customized just for you. Everyone is different, and our experienced doctors customize each treatment plan for each patient based on their needs and desires. We practice facially-driven treatment planning to customize each patient's care to maximize their facial and dental esthetics. We also take pride in the relationships that we build with our patients and their families, and we have a great time getting to know our patients over the course of their treatment.

Only the Highest Quality Materials

Excellent treatment demands excellent materials, so we only use the highest quality braces and wires. We are also experts in Invisalign and Invisalign Teen®, the highest quality clear aligner system for "invisible" orthodontic treatment.

Commitment to Technology

We are constantly implementing new techniques and materials into our practice to make your treatment more comfortable and more efficient. Safe, digital X-rays, digital models of your teeth, superelastic wires, Invisalign®, Invisalign Teen®, and low-profile braces are just some of the innovations we have put to work for you.

No Pressure to Start

Your first visit to our office is designed to be informative and educational, where we discuss your desires, needs and treatment options. Our doctors will let you know the optimal time to begin orthodontic treatment, and if it is appropriate to wait, we will suggest annual or semi-annual observation visits until the time is right to begin. We will never pressure you to start treatment – only give you our best recommendations to provide you with the best treatment possible.

Affordable Treatment and Flexible Payment Options

Our goal is to design financial arrangements that make your treatment affordable and fit your budget. We offer in-house, no-interest financing through automatic bank or credit card drafts.

First Visit

We look forward to meeting you on your first visit to our office. During this time, we will help you get acquainted with our office and learn about your orthodontic treatment. We understand that each patient's orthodontic treatment is different, and we promise to give you the personal attention you deserve. Your first orthodontic visit will consist of an examination and discussion of potential treatment options. This important visit will address your orthodontic needs to determine if this is the proper time to begin treatment.

After we have evaluated your records, we conduct a treatment consultation to explain all aspects of your treatment in detail. We will provide a complete clinical diagnosis regarding the nature of the problem and a detailed plan that outlines your treatment, goals and estimated fees. We encourage questions from both the patient and the parent, and as such, we provide ample time to answer your questions.

You are now able to provide your patient history before you arrive at the office. You may download the Patient Acquaintance form in either Microsoft Word or in PDF format. You will need to install the Adobe Reader to view PDF files. We have provided a link to that program below. It only takes a couple minutes to install using their easy online instructions.
