The History of Orthodontic Care Specialists

Biewald/Hackett Orthodontics was founded in 1973 by Dr. Karl Biewald and Dr. Michael Hackett.  Drs. Biewald and Hackett were classmates at the University of Minnesota Dental School.  After graduation, they opened two offices in the Minneapolis area and one office in Cudahy, Wisconsin.  Dr. Hackett grew up in the Lake Geneva are of Wisconsin.  In the practice's infancy, they took turn flying down from Minneapolis to treat the patients in the Cudahy office.  The practices in Minnesota and Wisconsin both grew and expanded to many more office locations.
In May of 1991, Dr. Hackett passed away unexpectedly.  Dr. Biewald then made the decision to concentrate his time in Minnesota, and sold his interest in the Wisconsin business.
