Four Generations
Have Trusted McKenna Orthodontics

Families throughout New England have fulfilled their orthodontic needs with McKenna Orthodontics. If you need information about straightening teeth, you've come to the right place.

Today, orthodontic treatment is more common than ever. Even more common is confusing information about services available. At one time, getting straight teeth simply meant choosing an orthodontist. Today, with the introduction of plastic aligners like INVISALIGN, some potential patients are considering trusting the complex process of straightening teeth to a non-orthodontist.

Let this website be your information base … hopefully, it answers the questions you have been seeking. Get to know the basics of straightening teeth in ABOUT ORTHODONTICS Q&A. In NEW TECHNOLOGY, learn about the history of straightening teeth, the latest orthodontic tools, and why an orthodontist is required to take two years of education beyond that of the general dentist. For those who prefer traditional braces, check out the three different treatments on the BRACES page. On the INVISALIGN page, view the video on the benefits of plastic aligners. Learn why the cost-effective ORCHESTRATE plastic aligner system is only offered by orthodontists. And, for the curious folks, check out ORTHO GLOSSARY.

Three generations of orthodontic knowledge has led to this research center for you to explore. As a third-generation orthodontist, DR. STEPHEN MCKENNA, has been immersed in orthodontics his entire life. In the MCK ORTHO LEGACY, read how his grandfather Dr. Paul McKenna I, as one of the first orthodontists in the New England area, helped patients from as far away as Maine, Vermont, New Hampshire, New York, and Rhode Island. Like his orthodontist father Dr. Paul McKenna II, read about the numerous orthodontic awards and nominations granted to DR. STEPHEN MCKENNA by professional dental organizations.

With almost a century of delivering orthodontic care, McKenna Orthodontics has always prided itself in its ability to remain fluid and constantly evolving. This year, 2015, brought two transformative changes. First, DR. ROBERT H. RAPPAPORT joined the McKenna Orthodontic practice as the first non-family orthodontist. Second, McKenna Orthodontics opened in a third location in Longmeadow —in the previous office site of Dr. Rappaport.
