I was out of town from my local orthodontist and had a wire that was poking my gums and very uncomfortable. Smile Doctors was very friendly and helpful in my situation. They treated me as one of their own patients and made sure I was taken care of.

I haven’t even started my braces yet, but I’m so appreciative for smile doctors. I can’t wait to go on this journey with them. I felt welcomed from my first phone all the way through my consultation.

The staff was very friendly and professional. They are doing a great job with my Son and making the not so fun process of braces as comfortable as possible. I highly recommend them
