What Makes Shafer Smiles Different?
Virtually No Wait Times

With work, school, and extracurricular activities, finding time in your busy schedule for orthodontic appointments can sometimes be difficult. We understand that your time is both valuable and important, so we don’t want to keep you or your child waiting for your scheduled appointment! Dr. Shafer and his orthodontics team are happy to offer virtually no wait times at Shafer Smiles. We also ensure that you have ample time for questions with Dr. Shafer.

Invisalign Expert

Our office is a platinum provider of both Invisalign and Invisalign Teen. Dr. Shafer is a 5-star rated orthodontist which translates into the best service when it comes to your perfect smile, straighter teeth, and happiness. Thousands of smiles have been transformed by Dr. Shafer and our elite staff.

Free Smile Assessment

No two smiles are alike. That’s why we offer our patients a FREE Shafer Orthodontics Smile Assessment that offers a comprehensive look at the health of your teeth while also evaluating your smile goals. Together, we’ll decide on the best course of action best suited to your unique needs. It includes exam, consultation, and an office tour!

Straight Teeth Up To 50% Faster

Your orthodontic treatment time decreases with AcceleDent Aura, which Dr. Shafer uses to accelerate the movement of your teeth up to 50%! This technology works by inserting the mouthpiece – fitted around your existing orthodontics – and turning on the Activator for 20 minutes every day. AcceleDent Aura speeds up tooth movement by using SoftPulse Technology™. Faster tooth movement can even help to make your orthodontics more comfortable!

Flexible Payment Options

It is our mission to provide you with affordable, high-quality braces and orthodontic treatment that fits your budget! In saying that, we offer an array of payment options for braces to meet your needs. We accept cash, checks, all major credit cards. We even offer 0% financing! For a limited time, we are also offering $0 down & monthly payments as low as $129 per month, for up to 36 months!

Read What Some Of Our Happy Patients Are Saying...
Dr. Shafer and everyone in his office are amazing! Your first appointment is awesome. You feel so welcome. Every time I check in I don’t need to do anything. They see you walk in and check you in, they know who you are! There were no issues when I had to bring my little ones, 3 y.o. and 1 month old. I had brought a friend to keep them entertained but they said my kids could come back with me if I wanted. I have terrible anxiety when it comes to dental work. The friendliness and experience everyone has helps keep me calm. I am always in and out. I don’t remember an appointment that was pushed back due to the office being behind. I love it here so much I wish he also did regular dental work.

Dr. Shafer and his staff provide such a warm welcome in their offices. They give a thorough explanation of everything they will be doing and are doing before each appointment and after. To keep parents and patients in the loop they re-iterate at each visit what is going on and how it’s a step closer to the ultimate goal of straight beautiful teeth and a superb smile. Our first child had braces from his office and Dr. Shafer’s work was so satisfying with no complaints that we chose to take our second child there to start the orthodontic adventure with Dr. Shafer and his staff. Thank you Dr. Shafer and staff for your hard work, dedication and determination. Our family appreciates it more than you will ever know!

I’m towards the end of my braces treatment and I must say I had the best experience ever! The staff is great and super friendly. I’m usually in and out unless they need to do extra work but other than that I walk in the door, I’m greeted and 90% of the time I walk straight to the back and they get started! Dr. Shafer is awesome! I can tell he genuinely listens to me when I have a concern or he’ll begin by asking me if I have any questions or concerns before even starting. He also has two offices, one in Champaign 5 min away from house which is a bonus and one in Mahomet if you happen to be closer or live in that area. Highly recommend!
