Friendly curteous staff bent over backwards to fit us in with long-distance appointments. I always had great confidence in the care for my daughter during her course of treatment and guidance for your younger brother to delay the start of treatment. Would send all my kids to Dr. Koterwas!

Dr, Koterwas is a friendly and professional orthodontist. He is patient centered and waits until the perfect time to implement a procedure instead of starting a child as soon as they come to his office. His office staff is friendly and very efficient. I would recommend him to everyone..
