This is my first time getting braces as an adult and my experience has been nothing but awesome. Dr. Harris and the rest of his team go above and beyond to make you feel comfortable and relaxed. They’re very professional, knowledgeable and display excellent customer service. The front desk staff are very pleasant and attentive from the time of arrival and departure. The atmosphere is clean and everyone is always in a good mood and willing to help each other. I look forward to my visits. I will definitely recommend to my friends and family.

Best orthodontics office ever! Dr. Harris and his staff are amazing! He speaks to my child, not to me – as she’s the patient. The staff is very professional, accommodating, and caring. We have had an EXCELLENT experience here and can’t wait to get our other child into braces with Dr. Harris!

The entire staff is excellent. Dr. Harris is very thorough with explaining everything and his assistant Judy, is knowledgeable and very welcoming. She has the same name as my mom so it made me even more at ease while having my braces put on. I highly recommend Harris Orthodontics. They will not disappoint!

Harris Orthodontist is fantastic.  The staff is so courteous and helpful.  I have 2 daughters who are both patients of Dr. Harris.  They find him very friendly, kind and personable.  The appointments are always very timely.  As a parent, I have felt very informed about every step from payments to spacers to getting the braces off.  My children’s teeth look amazing already and can’t wait to see the finished products.  Very conveniently located across from the South Park Mall.

I chose 5 stars bc this place absolutely amazing! When I got my braces, it didn’t hurt a bit. Sanitation is good, they checked my temperature with a modern thermometer. They always tell me what they are doing before they start working on my teeth. So yeah, shoutout to all those who work there because you guys are amazing.

Have known Drs Arkle and Harris for the past 18 years. I find their expertise in managing an orthodontic case to be second to none. Very comprehensive minded orthodontic practice. Results are of very high caliber. Patient care very well attended to by office and all staff members. If there were 6 stars available, I would have given them a six!

Martita M. from Matthews, NC (Source: Yelp)


We just took our second child in to Drs. Arkle and Harris for braces today and confirmed that everything we remembered about the group is still as good as it was a few years ago. Their front desk staff is friendly, helpful and accommodating to the needs of real families and real children. The technicians that work with the doctors are so knowledgeable and patient with the kids. Dr. Harris took the time to explain about what he was putting in my son’s mouth, how it would work, and then he personally called me tonight to check up on my son. Really, these guys are as good as it gets.

I am extremely happy with the service I received, from my consultation to the day I got my retainers! Dr. Harris and his staff are knowledgeable, diligent, and hard-working. They pay attention to details and listen carefully to concerns. During the (COVID) lockdown, I had issues with an Invisalign tray. Dr. Harris worked hard to get my replacement tray ASAP so that I didn’t have any setbacks with my treatment. I am truly appreciative of his dedication to helping me fulfill my dream of having straight teeth and a beautiful smile. I am very pleased with my end results and will never hesitate referring patients.

As a mother, after entrusting the dental care of my daughter to Harris Orthodontics, I’ve found that Dr. Harris and his team feature a number of outstanding attributes well worth mentioning to anyone considering their services. Their facility is clean and well kept. The staff are welcoming and friendly, always going out of their way to make us feel at ease and show they’re happy to see us. In addition, Dr. Harris and his team possess a level of professionalism and knowledgeability that has helped to ensure the improved dental health of my daughter and has also eased my concerns regarding whether she’s receiving effective treatment. In fact, after about a year and a half of careful guidance and regular maintenance, the Harris Orthodontics team quite recently removed my daughter’s braces without complications; and to my delight, she left their facility with healthier and now straightened teeth. Overall then, I would strongly recommend anyone request the services of Harris Orthodontics if you’re looking for a warm and welcoming environment, as well as consistent, high-quality dental care!

Dr. Harris and his team were amazing. Great initial visit. Very informative about the process and payments. Braces visit went just as good. The whole team is very friendly and we even got a night call to check on how my daughter was feeling. Highly recommend!

My son just recently got his braces on shortly on after having his wisdom teeth removed. Dr. Harris and his staff were so nice. I love how Dr. Harris calls personally and checks on your child the next day. They really make you feel wonderful. I love the reward system they offer to motivate as well. I would recommend Harris Orthodontics to anyone.

I love all of the staff because they are extremely kind and friendly. When I went to go and get my braces I was very nervous and they were very reassuring that it wouldn’t hurt at all. And that made me feel so much better. I also like that you can also watch a movie during your appointment. Overall My experience and Harris Orthodontics is really good and would definitely recommend to friends and family.

Love our treatment we have received thus far! My child loves his appointments and we appreciate the honesty and a willingness to let his teeth develop a little more before rushing into braces. Also, we love that they take his self confidence into consideration when determining his course of treatment

I am extremely happy with the service my son received at Harris Orthodontics. I was apprehensive about my 7-yr-old having braces, but it was the best decision! The complimentary evaluation was easy and comprehensive. The doctor and staff were friendly and put my child at ease. They explained everything throughout the process. I especially liked that they helped him to understand and take responsibility for his own oral care. All of our questions were answered and scheduling was convenient. Additionally, he was able to earn points towards gift cards. Pricing was resonable and they were able to offer financing. I am so impressed with the final results of my son’s smile and he’s so much more confident. I would highly recommend Harris Orthodontics to anyone considering braces for themselves or family members.

At my first appointment to put on my braces I have found Harris Orhodontics to be a very professionally run practice. Dr. Harris is thorough and has created a culture of friendly and helpful associates. Everyone from when you arrive to going through your service seems to be very friendly and really trying to take care of you and your needs.

Amazing customer service. Having already been through braces with my oldest and thought we had a great experience but we moved and had to find a new orthodontist and I couldn’t be more impressed: greeted as we came in the technicians, treatment plan team to the doctors and the amenities were amazing.

Yanna Cowan (Source: Facebook)


They are totally awesome! Came in with my 12 month old daughter and they made me feel so at ease throughout the whole visit! Dr.Harris is patient and he talks you through the whole procedure.Great staff and BIG shoutout to Kaleigh.

I know this review is long but it’s well worth it! I am known for thoroughly looking into just about every business that I patronize and I was no different when I decided on braces. I didn’t know anyone personally who’d received treatment at Harris Orthodontics. Their reviews alone led me here and I have to say that they’ve totally exceeded my expectations. I’m 40. So, I’m not the typical client you’d see in an orthodontic office. Having moved to Charlotte from The City of Medicine, I’ve had experience taking my children to the orthodontist and it always felt like a pediatrician’s office as I waited for them. When I’d be called back for my appointment (pre-COVID lol), I’d be so settled in with a book in hand that my service felt like an interruption. Yes, their waiting area is that cozy (especially during the holidays). 🙂 Harris Orthodontics is so modern, friendly, consistently professional, knowledgeable and SPOTLESS. I’m a stickler for cleanliness and they check all of my boxes. Their front-desk staff or so welcoming and I’m always greeted with a friendly and genuine smile. My appointments are always prompt and I never have extended wait times. I’ve fallen in professional love (lol) with Patty and I always request to be in her chair. She has many years of experience and it shows! Like a pro, she walks that fine line of being friendly and personal without any loss of professionalism. Post-COVID, they’ve streamlined their check-in process with temperature checks and hand sanitizing for all of us. From numbered parking spaces to texting to inform them you’ve arrived, they’ve gone above and beyond to protect their staff and patients! I call them the “Apple Store of Orthodontics”. Dr. Harris is the “Steve Jobs of Orthodontics”!

My son recently finished his orthodontic care with Dr. Harris, and we could not be more pleased with the results, and the service provided by the entire staff at Harris Orthodontics. Dr. Harris and his staff go above and beyond to make patients feel comfortable and welcome in the office, and I would not hesitate to recommend them to anyone. We had another orthodontist in the area complete my daughter’s orthodontics prior to finding Dr. Harris, and we wish we had found Dr. Harris sooner. With the other orthodontist, appointments were regularly 30-45 minutes late beginning due to overbooking, appointments were difficult to get, and treatment lasted much longer than planned. With Dr. Harris, we rarely waited more than a few minutes before my son was taken back. Appointments were completed promptly, and efficiently, which was very appreciated. My son’s treatment finished right on schedule, and his teeth look beautiful!

Dr. Harris is amazing! He and his staff are caring and friendly. I went to his office to get a second opinion and although his diagnosis of my child’s situation was totally different from the previous orthodontist I’d seen, I trust that he has my child’s best interest at heart. He saved my child from getting a 2phase treatment plan at the previous orthodontist that I’d visited, as I had already made an appointment to begin orthodontic work but went to Dr. Harris just for a second opinion before my child’s treatment was to begin. Dr. Harris is definitely not out to get your money by placing your child in braces before it’s absolutely necessary. I would recommend Dr. Harris to all my friends. Thank you Dr. Harris for your honesty and for caring for your patients

Leah M. from Concord, NC (Source: Yelp)


I am an adult patient of Dr. Harris. My dentist and Dr. Harris discussed my facial muscles, bite, and teeth-over lunch-before I ever met Dr. Harris. (I am so grateful for the collaboration and personal attention.) Dr. Harris has continued to work with my dentist to adjust my teeth, and they email/call each other after my appointments to discuss the plan. My bite has caused muscle problems and pain. Until this experience, I thought that braces were only for straight smiles. However, through adjusting my teeth, Dr. Harris had improved my life. I feel blessed with the dramatic improvements in how my muscles feel. As an aside, I recognize that it is not necessary for an office staff to be welcoming and friendly in order to “get the job done,” but this staff is great-a real bonus! Most patients who receive adjustments while I’m there are kids. I get to see first-hand how they receive explanations and instruction. (You hear laughing during every appointment.) After I expressed concern about my kids’ facial muscles/bite, they received a complimentary evaluation and detailed review of the scans. Dr. Harris explained why my daughter will not need braces. Further, Dr. Harris explained that my son doesn’t “need” correction, but he may choose to adjust a front-tooth space in the future. I trust Dr. Harris. That means everything. I am looking forward to my braces being removed, but while I need them, I couldn’t ask for better care.

I can’t say enough positive things about Dr. Harris and his Orthodontics Team. We have been with them for over a year now into our treatment and they continue to amaze with their professionalism, how personal they all are and always available for questions, concerns and immediate care. If you are shopping for Braces I highly recommend this office. They will not Disappoint!

We have been so happy with Dr Harris and his staff. Our child had a relatively short period on braces with amazing results and I feel strongly that is due too the up front investment we got from Dr Harris. We knew crowding was an issue as early as 6yrs and we had semi annual no cost consults where the Dr would suggest approaches to minimize the time in braces in the future (such as early child teeth removal and other strategies to make room for normal adult teeth growth). Through it all the staff was friendly, flexible and gave us the feeling that they really cared about our child not just their smile but them as a person!

My experience was great, with Dr Harris and his staff . Very professional, caring an polite. I was not happy with my teeth when I came there .He reissued me that my teeth would be straight and perfect. I would recommend Dr. Harris to my friends an family. Very happy with the results. 5 Star for Dr Harris Group !!!

Will G. from Charlotte, NC (Source: Yelp)


We are on our 3rd child in braces here and this place is outstanding. The admin staff is always pleasant and professional. They get the kids signed in, scheduled, & provide school notes promptly. The techs are amazing and make it a point to over communicate where the kids are in their treatment, any changes that need to me made, and what to expect next. The doctor is awesome and takes his time in checking and explaining things. The office itself is very nice and has a great level of technology. Overall my wife and I are very pleased and highly recommend this place!

SC A. from Charlotte, NC (Source: Yelp)


Dr Harris and his staff did a fantastic job with my adult braces! The staff is extra friendly and they are super when it comes to urgent appointments. I was especially impressed with how Dr Harris worked closely with 2 additional dental specialists resolve my complex case. Highly recommend!

Both my husband and myself were impressed with Dr. Harris, the staff, the wonderful customer service. My daughter got her braces yesterday and the same day we received a call from Dr. Harris following up on the patient. Wonderful! I would highly recommend. Their incentive program for the kids is excellent also!

We knew Dr. Harris through our visits to Dr. Chen and when it was time for braces it was our first time at the befield location and wow, we were truly blown away at our experience! From start to finish , lovely and clean facility , customer service “Brittney , Martha “were exceptional. The procedures for COVID were very efficient and follow ups are easy to follow. Each employee that we had contact with was caring and efficient. Ms. Patty was very welcoming, informative, and explained the process and each procedure very thoroughly. Dr. Harris is straight forward professional, calm , welcoming, and full of wisdom in his craft. This was truly the best experience and highly recommend Dr. Harris Orthodontics for kids and adults alike. Thank you For Your Care! Bigs Smiles …

My 7 year old son just got his braces put on today and I cannot express enough how impressed I am with Dr. Harris and the ENTIRE staff!! They have gone above and beyond during every single visit!!! On top of that Dr. Harris himself just called to check and see how Garrett was doing!!!! Top Notch Doctor and entire staff!!!!!! Highly Recommend!!

My daughter got her braces on yesterday and from our consultation a few months earlier I had a great feeling about this office and the staff. Starting with the welcome sign with her name on it, to the follow up call from Dr Harris the evening she got her braces put on. I will definitely recommend Dr Harris.

We are very happy with the service at Harris Orthodontics. Dr. Harris and his staff are very friendly. When me and my daughter arrive we are always greeted with a smile. I love that after each visit she can earn points for good brushing and arriving on time. She can also earn points by playing games online. Those points can be used to get gift cards. I would recommend this practice to anyone who needs braces! I’m considering getting braces myself!

Channon Wright (Source: Facebook)


My son became a patient of Dr. Harris well before his braces went on and the relationship has been wonderful since day one. His braces were put on last week and as a parent, I can not say enough great things about this place. Dr. Harris called us the evening that his braces were put on to check on him….that is the consistent, thoughtful, caring service Dr. Harris and the entire Harris Orthodontics family give. A sincere thank you for all that you do for our family!!

Harris Orthodontics is Amazing!! I really love the atmosphere and very genuine and friendly staff members that make you feel comfortable and welcomed each visit. Every staff member is knowable when explaining the step by step process of each procedure while also making you feel confident with your braces. Harris Orthodontics is by far the best compared to other dental offices due to their Patient Reward App, Gift Card, Surveys, Games, Photo booth, Contest, and Handwritten notes that make patients feel rewarded. The office tour is the best when getting to know staff members and the atmosphere. Each visit is great, as a patient my most memorable experience would be taking pictures with the staff when first getting my braces on. I would most defiantly recommend Harris Orthodontics anyone that’s considering braces. I am beyond confident in the results of each visit, Harris Orthodontics is by far the best orthodontics office in Charlotte!

I always felt very welcomed when I walked in through their doors! I love that they have a rewards system for the patients because it really pushes us to keep up our dental hygiene. They have super fun contests and other fun events that they hold in their office. It is full of anreat energy and I love the people there. This was definitely the right choice for me! 🙂
