What Sets Us Apart

Our philosophy is to provide the highest level of quality care to people who seek orthodontic treatment in a comfortable yet professional atmosphere.

Our Commitment to Excellence

The high level of care provided is achieved by our continued commitment to learn and excel in an ever-changing industry. Dr. Pawelek is board certified, a benchmark that only one in four orthodontists achieve. He and Dr. Harris continue to grow with the innovative field of orthodontics so that the practice can offer the most up-to-date technology.

We also utilize technological advances to facilitate treatment and communication with parents, patients, and their doctors. Their advanced education and training, years of experience, and dedication to providing individual care and ideal results, ensures every visit is efficient, comfortable, and has our patients smiling.

The Benefits of Orthodontic Treatment

Though many people choose orthodontic treatment as a way of improving their appearance, there is an additional, lasting benefit to straightening your teeth: better health. By moving teeth into proper alignment, our doctors improve your bite, which then improves function and decreases the strain on your jaw and face muscles. Orthodontics also makes it easier to keep your teeth clean, which improves your oral health and reduces the likelihood of future cavities.


We never want financial stress to get in the way of achieving your dream smile. We will do everything we can to make this process more affordable and manageable for your family so you can get quality results at a fair price. We are proud to offer free consultations where you can receive a plethora of information and check out digital scans of your teeth and jaw composition. During this initial visit, Dr. Pawelek or Dr. Harris can explain if any orthodontic treatment is needed and what your options are.

Your Personalized Treatment Plan

Understanding that individuals have unique needs and goals when we design an orthodontic treatment plan for a child, teen, or adult, we consider their clinical situation as well as their lifestyle and hobbies. With each patient, we emphasize improved oral health and functional as well as beautiful smiles! 

When you’re a patient at Pawelek & Harris Orthodontics, you’re a friend. We look forward to getting to know you, learning about your life and interests, and will remember what’s important to you. For us, each of your visits is not only a time to monitor your treatment progress but an opportunity to catch up on what’s happening in your life!

For your convenience, our hours start as early as 7:15 a.m. and we are open until 5:00 p.m. to ensure there are plenty of appointments before and after school or work. To learn more and schedule a complimentary consultation contact our Deer Park Orthodontic Office and speak to a member of our team!
