Welcome to Yapel Orthodontics!

Smiles are a reflection of who we are. They reflect our emotions, confidence and attitudes. Because we understand the vital role of your smile, Dr. Mike Yapel and his team are excited to welcome you to our office.

With locations in Sartell, Little Falls, and Big Lake , Minnesota, we have been providing a full range of orthodontic services for children, teens and adults since 1992. We utilize state-of-the-art appliances such as ceramic braces and Invisalign® clear aligners. Invisalign is ideal for adult patients who want to enhance their smile, but are concerned about the appearance of traditional braces.

At Yapel Orthodontics, we work together to provide personalized service and an enjoyable orthodontic experience in a comfortable and fun environment. Contact us today and let us create a life-changing smile for you!


Along with the rest of the world, the team at Yapel Orthodontics has been feeling the impact of the coronavirus on our daily lives. During this time, we have relied on the CDC, Minnesota Department of Health and the Board of Dentistry for guidance on best practices to keep our patients and staff healthy and safe.

On March 19, Governor Walz and the Minnesota Board of Dentistry issued a statement that prohibits any non-emergency dental care with very limited exceptions until the order is rescinded. The ADA also published guidelines as to what criteria should be applied in determining what constitutes emergency care.  

If you are having a problem with a wire that is causing pain or tissue injury, a staff member will first do their best to assist you in dealing with it by telephone in order to keep office emergency visits to an absolute minimum.

We realize this will present significant inconvenience to our patients and appreciate your understanding. This worldwide pandemic and the steps being taken to bring it under control is something most of us have never experienced, and hope to never again.

Regarding appointment reminders: Until all calls to patients are made and appointments are cancelled out of the schedule, appointment reminders are generated automatically and you may receive one during the closure. If you get an appointment reminder before the order is rescinded, please disregard. Thank you and sorry for any confusion this may cause.
