Great doctor and staff. Very satisfied with the progress seen with Invisalign. About halfway thru the process and can't believe the change in overbite and movement of teeth.

Pediatric dentist was AWFUL. Doesn’t have experience- diagnosis was wrong. Go elsewhere where the focus is on young children

I have been going to Dr. Akkaway for the past two years with my Invisalign. Him and his staff are phenomenal. The office is always on time, they have plenty of appointments available, office is clean. You always get a thorough visit, give you the time to ask questions and make sure you understand what is going on. My Invisalign process was seamless and I owe that all to Dr Akkaway !!!

I cannot say enough wonderful things about our experiences with Dr Akkaway and his staff since using them for both our boys. Our one son was a difficult case and Dr Akkaway has gone out of his way with compassion toward him and working with other doctors as well. Both boys teeth look amazing! Would recommend this practice to anyone that needs orthodontic work and one day I plan to get some Invisalign for myself! I cannot thank them enough for all they have done for us! 2 thumbs up here!!

Dr. Akkaway and his staff were so awesome with my son during the process of implementing, maintaining and removing my son's palette expander. The cost was explained, different payment plans were offered and no hidden costs! Highly recommend them!

Staff is very pleasant and professional. Scheduling an appointment is easy. Dr. Akkaway gave both my daughter's beautiful smiles with traditional braces. He corrected my husband's teeth who stopped wearing his retainer with Invisalign. And finally, he corrected my bottom teeth with Invisalign. One happy family.

I went to Dr Akkaway for Invisalign and will bring both of my children to him when they are ready for braces. Honestly, I can’t think of bad or even mediocre experience. Love his office and team!
