What Sets Us Apart

what sets us apart

At Ankeny and Pella Orthodontics, we know what a significant difference in self-esteem and overall well-being a beautiful smile can make. When it comes to choosing an orthodontist, we understand the decision is an important and personal one.

Dr. Smith and Dr. Christensen, along with our team, want to invite you into our practice family, and show you all the ways we’re just as unique as you!


Our number-one priority is you, and we take pride in treating each of our patients like family. Our comprehensive and advanced orthodontic care is provided in a smaller, more intimate setting, which gives us an opportunity to work closely with our patients and provide a level of personalized care that goes above and beyond.

Thorough initial exam

We know that orthodontic treatment is a big decision, and we want you to make that decision with as much information as possible. We offer comfortable, obligation-free new patient exams that help you learn more about orthodontic treatment, and allow you to compare orthodontic treatment recommendations or obtain a second opinion.

Advanced cosmetic options

In addition to traditional metal braces, we offer Clarity™ advanced ceramic braces and Invisalign® clear aligners. If you are putting off your orthodontic treatment due to the appearance of braces on your teeth, let us discuss all your treatment options with you.
