Why Harrison Orthodontics

Why Harrison Orthodontics?

Simpsonville Orthodontist

At Harrison Orthodontics, we strive to provide patients with the best orthodontic experience possible and welcome them as part of our Harrison Orthodontics family!

In addition to his Specialty Degree in Orthodontics, Dr. Mike Harrison holds a Specialty Degree in Pediatric Dentistry, further benefitting the needs of our younger patients. Dr. Harrison and his team also routinely attend continuing education courses to remain current and stay abreast of the latest advancements in orthodontics.

We offer a Complimentary Examination to our new patients. At this appointment, our Treatment Coordinator will take photographs and a 3-D image utilizing our state-of-the-art iCAT FLEX 3D imaging scanner. The scanner provides numerous x-rays and images with only a fraction of the radiation that you would receive from a routine dental x-ray! Dr. Harrison will also perform an extensive examination and then will spend ample time with you, reviewing his findings, discussing your treatment options, and answering any treatment questions you may have. Our Financial Coordinator will work with you to create a financial arrangement that accommodates your unique financial situation and will file any orthodontic insurance you may have. At Harrison Orthodontics, we believe that everyone should have the benefit of a beautiful smile and we will work with you to make this goal possible!

During your treatment, our friendly and welcoming team will do their very best to provide you with the best orthodontic experience possible. Our Certified Orthodontic Assistants have received special training and are highly qualified to assist Dr. Harrison in providing your orthodontic care. Of course, you will be seen by Dr. Harrison at each appointment visit. We also offer early and late appointments to accommodate your busy schedule. Our Harrison Orthodontics Team thoroughly enjoys working with patients and their families to create the beautiful smile that you have always wanted!

A referral is never required for an orthodontic consultation. We invite you to contact our office to schedule your complimentary consultation today!

Getting to Know Dr. Harrison!

Dr. Michael A Harrison

Although I have practiced orthodontics for over 25 years, I am more passionate than ever about creating a beautiful new smile for each and every one of my patients!  I look forward to each day that I am privileged to be a part of the process.  It is so rewarding to see the positive impact that a stunning smile has on each person. It is such a gratifying experience to witness their transformation in appearance and self-esteem.  One of the many highlights of my job is really getting to know my patients and their families as they become part of the Harrison Orthodontics family!

Education

I received my undergraduate degree in Biology from the University of Mississippi.  I then attended the University of Mississippi, School of Dentistry where I was selected to OKU, the National Dental Honor Society and was a Magna Cum Laude graduate.  Following this, I attended MUSC in Charleston where I received my Specialty Degree in Pediatric Dentistry.  While practicing as a Pediatric Dentist, I became very interested in Orthodontics and decided to pursue the necessary training to become an Orthodontist.  I attended the University of Tennessee where I received a Master’s Degree in the Specialty of Orthodontics. My dual specialty degrees have provided me with a unique training and experiential background especially in the treatment of children.

Continuing Education

Along with my team, I regularly attend continuing education courses and participate in various study clubs to stay on the “cutting edge” of orthodontics and to continue offering our patients proven state of the art treatment. In order to provide our patients the best orthodontic experience possible,  have obtained additional training in Invisalign®, Invisalign Teen™, Temporary Anchorage Devices (TADs), Growth Modification Appliances, Damon System self-ligating brackets, and laser treatment.

I maintain several professional memberships that provide year-round opportunities for continuing education including:

When I am not in the office, I love spending time with my wife, Trish, and our sons, Daniel and Matthew, running, hiking, scuba diving (a family favorite!) and traveling around the world meeting people. A favorite hobby of mine is keeping honey bees, working out, and being in the outdoors, hunting, and fishing.
