CCO Statement Regarding COVID-19
EFFECTIVE 3/30/2020: We are closed to elective dental procedures until end-of-day 4/16/2020. We will continue to monitor the viability of reopening as we near this date. This is in response to recommendations by the American Dental Association , Georgia Dental Association, American Association of Orthodontists, Georgia Department of Public Health, and Georgia Board of Dentistry. This is not mandated by these agencies, Federal or State Government at this time. Ceasing operations does not in any way deem our Universal Precautions infection control procedures as ineffective!
Your CCO team has always been concerned with the spread of communicable disease. We continue to practice strict universal infection control protocols in our office for your safety. Your health and well-being, as well as that of our team, are our primary concern.
Our team is currently working on rescheduling patients affected by this closure. All emergency situations will be handled by our team with the utmost respect to the recommendations made by the agencies mentioned above. Please understand that we will not necessarily be able to make the situation completely resolved during this time as the procedures to do so could be considered a procedure that increases the risk of viral spread. In other words, we will make your emergency situation better to resolve the issue at hand. We will not make forward progress in your treatment until the recommendations are lifted and we reopen for normal business.
We look forward to resuming the forward progress for our patients. We miss you all already!
Based on guidelines set by the CDC and the DPH, the following protocols are implemented in our office, effective immediately.
Patients who have a fever, believe they are showing signs of infection, or who live with someone with symptoms, will be asked to reschedule their appointments.
Help us prevent the spread of viruses by washing your hands before your appointments.
Please do not bring sick family members to appointments.
Please understand our team will refrain from handshakes.

Thank you, Athens, for voting us the Best Orthodontist in the area!
We are happy when our clients are happy and to be voted the “Best Orthodontist” in your area, is an honor. We strive to be the best everyday, because our patients deserve just that. The Best Team, the Best Technology, the Best Experience for our clients. It’s what we’d want for ourselves and it’s what we want for you! Don’t settle for second place.
Welcome, Dr C!
Dr. Harter and Team CCO recently welcomed the addition of our associate orthodontist, Dr. Alex Culberson, to our practice. Dr. Culberson joined our team at both Classic City Orthodontics office locations May 13th and instantly made many connections with our patients and the community. To say that he’s the perfect fit is an understatement.
“Dr. C” shares our passion for excellence in patient care. Dr. Culberson is a graduate of the University of Georgia, The Dental College of Georgia, and he completed his orthodontic residency at The Ohio State University.
Dr. Culberson and his wife, Elizabeth Anne, are both from Eatonton. They enjoy many sports, spending time outdoors, and cheering for the Dawgs! Please join us in welcoming Dr. C and Elizabeth Anne home to CCO!
Where’s your orthodontic home?
We ask that you consider choosing an office to call “home.” Doing so will allow our team to properly store your custom-designed appliances, reducing the chance of you coming to one office while your appliance is in the other location.
For more than 30 years we have been Creating Classic Smiles. Now, we are doing so with two knowledgeable doctors, in two comfortable locations, with one first-class team, and one overall vision: to provide the very best orthodontic care in a happy, caring environment.
Thank you for trusting us with your smile!
Drs. Harter, Culberson, and the CCO Team
