I have had an overall great experience. All the people here are so nice and kind. I have really liked coming here and would strongly encourage anyone to come here. My experience overall was very positive. I had my braces for a little over two years and Dr. Tatum was with me the whole time except maybe once when she had her baby, which shows lots of dedication and I'm very thankful for her. And, now when my braces are gone, she still makes sure to check on me and how I'm doing.
