I can’t say enough good things about the staff at Smile Doctors! My son has had oral-motor and oral-sensory issues his entire life. After many years struggling to get through dentist appointments, we never really imagined that orthodontics would ever be an option but his teeth and his bite were in such bad shape we felt we needed to at least try and see if he could tolerate braces. After many, many prayers we were referred to Smile Doctors. I expected to hear that they didn’t think my son could tolerate braces because of his oral-sensory issues and because he is on the Autism spectrum. I could not have been more wrong. Every single person on the staff have showed us how much they care about his smile and my son as a patient. They go out of their way to comfort him and answer any questions I may have. They’re even super helpful after hours. My son looks forward to his appointments at Smile Doctors and that’s because of how wonderful the staff treat him. He no longer has discomfort in his mouth while eating and we can’t believe the difference in his smile! I will continue to recommend Smile Doctors to anyone who’s looking for an orthodontist! THANK YOU SMILE DOCTORS!!!

My daughter lost her retainer that we had gotten from another orthodontist. She called Smile Doctors and they gave her a great price on a replacement ($200 less than her own orthodontist quoted her). When we showed up, they didn’t have her on the list for that day but they acknowledged it was their error and worked her in. We were in and out in 30 minutes. And her retainer was ready for pick up that afternoon!!

Had a great experience with Dr. Pattison. Both of our children had braces and the staff was always wonderful. Great results. Our son recently received the “Best Smile” senior superlative, which surprised no one. His teeth are beautiful and we couldn’t be more pleased!
