I've been having the worst time with Lach Orthodontics office since September up until today . I wanted to transfer out of their office due to me relocating which usually requires a refund to your insurance. Pablo the finance manager was very rude and nasty and said that " We do not owe you anything". I asked for a itemized bill Pablo said " We don't do those". So I figured he wouldn't be much help so I called my insurance company and this is when things got sketchy. My insurance company sai

Lach has is a nightmare. I have spent so much money trying to get my confidence back just to be leaving their office in tears on multiple occasions. I tried to changing doctors that would cost me a lot. Only a few staff members that treat you like a human and with respect and care. I have been talked down to and told I am wrong. I told the invisalign tech that I had all my trays and he yelled at me that I didn't. No one communicates. They forgot to order my trays which that delayed my treatment.

LACH ORTHODOTICS Oh what a horrible place! Signed up both girls. Nightmare with first, so cancelled the other and went elsewhere. First daughter's brackets would never stay on past a day, and tech after tech failed. Found a gem Brad who could finally help. Only would allow to see him. NEVER saw the doc except day scheduled to remove. She'd worn rubber bands and day of scheduled removal doc said oops wore bands too long, now must wear bands 6 more weeks other direction since they goofed. Got her

I first started going here when I was 7 years old. When I was this young I had to have multiple devices in my mouth one of them, the expander when this was being placed in my mouth the dental assistant dropped it down my throat I was terrified to go back. After many years of having braces I finally had them removed. I hated this place you waited forever for the doctor and had no bed side manor what so ever. And when my braces were finally off he didn't even look at my teeth. Do not recommend

I take issue with a practice that makes you take your child out early from school, and then has her wait 1 1/2 hours to see the doctor. After a 5 minute consultation, the work began and she was out in 2 hours total. Other patients that had arrived much later were seen first, which just doesn't make sense. The quality of care is fine, the hygiene of the practice is superb, my only issue is with the practice management and appointments.

Please just find yourself another orthodontist!!! Working with Dr. Lach has been a living nightmare. I am in the process of needing oral surgery and Dr. Lach has not been willing to communicate with my oral surgeons office. I am now possibly going to have to find another orthodontist. If I can save one person from going through this hell it is worth my time. I have had numerous other issues as well. Long wait times, they always seem very unorganized and unsure of what is going on in my treatment

If I could leave zero stars, I would. I went to Dr. Lach's office for a new plastic removable retainer. I was charged $450 for a permanent metal (non-removable) retainer. After many mishaps in the office, including their attempt to place this permanent retainer without a medical need and without going over anything with me, I asked for a refund. They refused. I've filed a complaint with the BBB. STAY AWAY FROM THIS PLACE!

Daughter received Ortho treatment for gaps in front teeth. After treatment found that gap was corrected but the bite was screwed up. Something you wouldn't notice if it wasn't for the Dentist calling it out. Instead of seeing this at some point over the 2 years, he missed it because he never examines the patient after the first. Went for a second opinion to confirm that the rear teeth did shift during the treatment under Dr. Lach. Yup... A good Dentist would have caught this. Beware.
