Reviews from our patients

Dr. Fields was my orthodontist when I was around 12 years old. He gave me lovely straight teeth which I'm sure was hard to do with my over crowded teeth, over bite, and crooked teeth! I just turned 31 and I'm going back to him to have new retainers put in (my dentist says she has never seen retainers old up so well for so long)! I'll be making the hour plus drive just so he can be the one that does it! Also, my favorite memory as a child was the yellow "dr excuse tickets".... I hope they still hand those out!

I cannot rave enough about the quality of this doctor and staff. I am 27 now and initially had braces when I was 15 at the Gainesville location. My teeth have shifted due to late growth and I went to the Dawsonville office to see Doctor Field. I was impressed as a teenager and I am even more so as an adult. The entire staff is warm and inviting; Dr. Field is incredibly knowledgeable. This office goes above and beyond for their patients, and I do not trust anyone else with my orthodontic care. I would wholeheartedly refer everyone I know to this office. Thanks again, I love all of you! I look forward to my next visit.
