Great experience with Dr. Brett & team! My daughter’s process for braces started 2 yrs ago when I was coming off disability & dreading the forseen expense! From the consultation of treatment & financials... through the whole experience, was painless!! They have very flexible payment plans & Dr. Brett & the whole team have a calming manner. They explained everything in what to expect & prepared my daughter for just in case things that may happen. The facility is very clean, they use the latest technology & they are very organized... with appointments & patients coming in/out...this was even apparent pre covid... I’m thankful I ended up at Springfield Orthodontics & didn’t just go with friend’s referrals for other places!

My boys have been seeing Dr Handsman for orthodonticsfor almost 18 months. We had to move in the middle of the treatment after we had paid up almost entirely for the treatment. Dr Handsman acknowledged that one my sons had almost 18 months to go with a new provider and the other had 6-8 months. But he would not refund more than 13% of the total cost. I asked for an explanation of how we arrived at the refund, which he refused to provide. I felt I was treated unfairly and did not realize that orthodontists can effectively do whatever they wish with your money without furnishing any details. Not sure if this is standard operating mode or just this practice. Be warned and do you research on how your orthodontist will handle a transition before signing up. In this day and age where customer service and transparency around what a customer owes you is standard business practice, anyone looking for orthodontic treatment and willing to pay up for it should be treated better than I was

Dr. Brettis great with my daughter. She was nervous and scared to get a palate expander but the experience has been fabulous. Dr. Brett is very understanding and caring.
