SHN Orthodontics offers you Orthodontists, not simply general dentists. An Orthodontist is a dentist who has not only completed a graduate program in dentistry to receive their DDS or DMD (Doctor of Dental Surgery or Doctor of Dental Medicine), but has also gone through a competitive residency at a CODA-accredited Orthodontic program for an additional 2-3 years to be trained specifically in Orthodontics and Dentofacial Orthopedics. A Family of Mission Viejo Orthodontists Over 40 years ago Dr. Nissen's father, Dr. James Hilgers, established his Orthodontic practice at our current location. Dr. Nissen is a proud third-generation Orthodontist who enjoys the pleasure of delivering orthodontic treatment in her own unique way! Her hallmarks are great orthodontic vision, attention to detail, and a kind and communicative approach to practice. Dr. Nissen is a local product of St. Margaret's in San Juan Capistrano and after her education in The Bay Area and Boston, she returned to receive her Master's Degree in Orthodontics from Loma Linda University. We look forward to our journey with you!   To say that we are patient-centric is an understatement. We exist to help you and take great pride in providing you with kind, gentle, thoughtful, and professional orthodontic care. Creating a smile that you are proud of is an honor for us and we enjoy every step of this journey with you! We go the extra mile to ensure a transparent, honest, and well communicated orthodontic treatment. In practicality, this means that we have a "open operatory" policy. We want want you to see our work, understand our method, and to ask as many questions as you can so that you feel comfortable with your patient care. Parents-- we really encourage you to be chair-side with us asking questions and learning all you can about your child's treatment. Our modern office is meant to be an oasis of relaxation during your visit. Leave your stress and worries at the door, enjoy a fresh coffee, a water, a magazine, or even a Mrs. Field's cookie hot from the oven (don't worry-- it will be our little secret!). Our family has been practicing orthodontics in this very office since the early 1970's. Imagine Dr. Nissen as a little girl watching her father, Dr. James Hilgers, proudly practice his trade. And then see Dr. Nissen as a teenager mixing orthodontic cement for self-ligating. The Hilgers Family and Mission Viejo Orthodontics have been a tradition for over 40 years and we are honored to carry the baton! Great Orthodontics resides at the intersection of training, vision, and technology. We employ the best technology on the market from Invisalign, to the Damon System, to low radiation dental imaging. We invest in technology and your result and experience will directly be impacted by our commitment to that investment. We look forward to meeting you and your family and helping you achieve a beautiful, healthy smile.

We are excited to start working with your team. Everyone in the office was so friendly and professional. Everything was explained in detail and our appointment eased my son’s mind about the treatment he will receive. The office is clean and welcoming and had really cool lobby decor. 5++ stars to Dr. Shannon and her team.

We had a wonderful experience at Dr. Hilgers Nissen’s office. The staff were warm and welcoming to our entire family (including my active three year old). They took the time to explain everything we needed to know about our treatment and answered all questions. Dr. Hilgers Nissen was kind, gentle and professional. I left feeling confident putting my children’s orthodontic care in her hands.

We’ve been patients of the Hilgers family since mid 90’s Dr. Hilgers dad treated my nephew with braces, than years later me as an adult needed braces and treated by his daughter Dr. Shannon Hilgers, same professional and caring treatment as years past. Everyone is very kind and caring and professional, make you feel at ease and relaxed. Will definitely recommend Dr. Hilgers and staff!

My daughter absolutely loves Dr. Nissen and the staff. They are all amazing. They are incredibly kind and patient and make you feel welcome. I would highly recommend them to anyone I know. They are the best orthodontist office I have been to. I would also like to thank them for reaching out and helping with an insurance issue.

Excellent experience overall with Dr. Nissen and all the staff! They were very supportive with the entire braces process, and we received a customized retainer that works very well for my child. The staff we interacted with were so kind and thoughtful, always making positive comments about the improvements with my child’s teeth. I highly recommend Dr. Nissen!
