Q& A With Charlotte NC Orthodontist Dr. Jared Little
Tell us a bit about how Mint Hill Orthodontics came to be.
After moving to the Queen City from California (where I completed residency), I began working for orthodontic practices right away in Charlotte, Matthews, and Gastonia. When deciding on the perfect location, I was immediately drawn to Mint Hill’s community, pride and proximity to Charlotte Proper. After meeting fellow business owners and community members, it was an easy choice to open Mint Hill Ortho!
What ages do you serve?
We treat all ages. You are never too old or young to have your dream smile! We recommend seeing children for an initial consultation at age seven to evaluate current/future treatment options and familiarize themselves with our office and team.
What kind of orthodontic services does Mint Hill Ortho offer?
MHO offers a variety of treatments to reach your smile goals, including traditional metal braces, clear braces, Invisalign clear aligners, and more! During your complimentary consultation, we discuss all these treatment options and decide which is the best for you.
Mint Hill Ortho is an Invisalign Diamond Plus Provider. What does that mean?
Mint Hill Orthodontics is proud to be amongst the top 1% of Invisalign providers. This designation means we deliver the highest quality results and can offer the most competitive pricing for clear aligner treatment.
How does the Mint Hill Ortho team work with patients to deliver beautiful smiles?
Mint Hill Ortho centers every facet of our practice around our patients. This patient-centric approach ensures every patient’s smile goals are not only heard but achieved.
Take us through what to expect on our first visit.
During a patient’s first visit, they will experience a relaxed, conversational consultation with myself, Dr. Little, and a member of the MHO team. We evaluate photos and x-rays together and review all the patient’s goals and questions to create a treatment plan that best suits the patient’s needs, lifestyle and timeline.
What makes Mint Hill Ortho unique and sets you apart from the others?
We proudly built Mint Hill Ortho’s systems around efficiency – Efficiency in scheduling, treatment planning/execution, and follow-up visits are all designed with the patient’s time in mind. We understand you’re busy! Combining state-of-the-art technology with “old school” values and service ensures our patients have the best experience possible.
What is the most rewarding part of treating patients?
It would be easy to say the smiling end result is the best part; however, we find getting to know our patients and their families throughout their journey is even sweeter. We have a front-row seat in our patients’ lives during the 6-18 months of treatment, where we see their confidence soar, which is by far the most rewarding aspect.
What can we find you doing when you’re not giving people the smile of their dreams as far as hobbies or guilty pleasures?
On the weekends, you can find me at a car show, on my bicycle, or trying to find my golf ball in the woods of any local golf course!
What’s your favorite thing or place in Charlotte/Matthews?
Moving from Michigan and then California, I was immediately drawn to the community. For the Charlotte-Metro area to be so large and continuously growing, the “small town” and tight-knit communities and neighborhoods are incredibly welcoming – and so fun to experience each of their unique personalities, cultures, and of course, foods!
What’s a little-known fact about you?
While attending college at The University of Michigan, I formally tried out for the football team, having never played organized football in my life. This obviously didn’t go according to plan, but at least my plan to become an orthodontist did!
