Accepting new patients

I love the cosmetic and aesthetic aspects of being an orthodontist. It is very fulfilling to know that I make a difference in my patients' lives. It is a tremendous feeling to know that I can have a positive effect on a person's health and happiness. I appreciate the fact that I work with people who care about themselves and want to improve themselves.

Patient Comments (4)
Gastonia, NC |
Horrible results! His competence is questionable, at best. After 2 phases and 5 yrs of braces, our dentist informed us of problems with our daughter's teeth. We consulted with a different, experience orthodontist and learned of 7 MAJOR problems with her teeth, basic things that any ortho should know. She had to get all of the brackets back on and the other ortho corrected the issues. On the surface, Hanachi may seem good, but He does a horrible job at correcting teeth properly. Beware!

We are beyond words happy with Dr Hanachi and his whole staff. Every visit for 2 1/2 years have been pleasant, on time and speedy. When our daughter broke a bracket and we were leaving for vacation they fit us in that day without question. He and his staff keep the parent and patient very informed the entire time.

I've had a great experience at this office! The staff is always friendly and I've never waited for more then 10 minutes to have an adjustment.

I would definitely recommend Dr. Hanachi. He and his staff are polite, compassionate and understanding, and professional. Dr. Hanachi has as sense of humor and is easy going, and he definitely cares about his patients and their outcomes. He did a phenomenal job in correcting my daughter's bite and straightening her teeth. It is hard to believe it is the same child smiling at me.
