at Hillsdale Orthodontics
At Hillsdale Orthodontics, we consider caring for your family’s smiles a privilege and it is one we take very seriously.
Orthodontic care requires careful coordination and cooperation between patients and specialists. Thankfully, our specialists are experts at their craft and enjoy working on achieving the best possible versions of a patient’s smile.
Here, you’ll be able to ask all the questions you have about your treatment. Our team loves answering those questions, and it makes every patient understand their options.
Ask about the type of treatment plan we design for you, how long it will take, and the resources available to make this treatment affordable for our patients.
Dr. Leemin, Dr. Handick, and all the team wish to welcome you to our practice and hope to help you with all your orthodontic needs!
Meet Dr. Leemin
As a nutty overachiever, she never lost sight of her childhood dreams of becoming a smartypants orthodontist. She currently practices as a Board Certified orthodontist; an achievement shared only by one third of orthodontists nationwide. With broad experience in advanced orthodontic treatments, Dr. Leemin is well-suited to serve patients of all ages.
Meet Dr. Handick
Dr. Kimberly Handick began her orthodontic career in Hillsdale after graduating from Indiana University School of Dentistry with high honors and finishing her residency program in orthodontics with a master’s degree. She came to the PNW with her husband and one baby, but two decades and a set of triplets later, she somehow finds herself as the loving mother to four grown-up children and a golden doodle named Stella.
At Hillsdale Orthodontics, we strive to offer a host of treatments to meet all of your orthodontic goals. From traditional braces and Invisalign to treatment for gummy smiles, we offer everything you need to achieve the smile of your dreams.
Invisalign is the leading orthodontic treatment for discreet, comfortable tooth alignment for teens and adults. Unlike traditional metal braces, Invisalign uses clear, removable aligners that adjust tooth and bite alignment without wires or brackets.
We offer gummy smile treatment to correct any excessive gingival display that negatively affects the overall appearance of your smile. After treatment, you won’t have to hesitate while smiling publicly anymore.
Dr.Leemin diagnose TMJ disorder by taking the patient’s medical history into consideration and doing a physical exam to find the cause of the symptoms. Then, a proper treatment plan can be crafted to help patients find relief from TMJ pain.
We use surgical orthodontics only when necessary. Most of the time, surgical procedures are used to correct severe cases such as bad bites, jaw bone abnormalities, severe malocclusions, and more.

It sure is an exciting time, and you don’t have anything to fear.
If this is your first visit with us, you’ll be glad to know it’s completely free!
Expect our team to help you with an initial diagnostic, some X-rays, and a thorough conversation on what type of treatment would work best in your case.
Our conversation can last anywhere between 30 minutes and 1 hour, so come with all your questions. We’re here for you.
You can also discuss payment and the financing resources available to make your treatment as affordable as possible.
Once you start using your orthodontic appliance, you will notice your mouth feels a little different. You will feel some minor discomfort during the first few days, but the treatment will become second nature for you as time goes on.
