Merry Christmas

An Open Letter to Our Patients, Staff, Referring Doctors, and Spouses:

To say that 2019 was an exciting and eventful year for our office is really an understatement. This year has been full of new landmarks for our team, and it is fitting for us to pause to say thank you to all of you who have supported and encouraged us to continue to grow and improve.

Here is a snapshot of some of the things that happened in 2019 at Hartsock and Sword Orthodontics:


  • Dr. Sword became a partner in ownership and our name changed from "Hartsock Orthodontics" to "Hartsock and Sword Orthodontics".
  • We became the first Invisalign provider in East Kentucky to achieve Diamond-Level status, which means that we are now in the Top 1% of all Invisalign providers in the world.
  • We opened a new satellite office in Paintsville, Kentucky and have begun to serve more patients from Johnson County and surrounding areas.
  • We hired two new wonderful staff members, Chelsea and Madison, and they have been an amazing addition to our family.
  • Dr. Hartsock continued lecturing around the United States to educate other orthodontic specialists and train them on all the latest and greatest Invisalign technology.

What a year it has been!

TO OUR PATIENTS AND THEIR FAMILIES: Thank you from the bottom of our hearts for trusting us to be your orthodontist. Providing safe and effective orthodontic care for our patients in a friendly and encouraging environment is our top priority, and you have allowed us to do exactly that. We are extremely honored to be a part of your lives and wouldn’t trade it for anything! We have enjoyed getting to know each and every one of you. We love the people here in our area and hope to continue to serve you for many years to come.

TO OUR STAFF MEMBERS: Thank you for being so loving and caring to our patients and for being top-notch. Your professional and friendly care of those who walk through our doors has allowed us to fulfill our vision of serving Appalachia. Thank you for being patient with us and for going above and beyond the call of duty to encourage us and the families who come to see us. We owe the success of our services to you all. We appreciate you so much.

TO OUR REFERRING DOCTORS: We are honored that you have chosen us to provide your patients with orthodontic care. Thank you for trusting us and for all you do for our patients. We are blessed to have so many wonderful colleagues in our area. We appreciate your service to our communities and hope you have a Merry Christmas and a wonderful New Year.

TO OUR WIVES: Thank you for loving us, supporting us, holding us accountable, and encouraging us to be our best. We love you and are so excited to spend another decade with you. You all are so precious to us, and we appreciate all that you do to keep us inspired and motivated.

Finally, Merry Christmas to all! And Happy New Year! We can’t thank you enough. We recorded this song to celebrate another wonderful year (bet you didn’t see that coming!). Enjoy!
