I took my son for a consultation and Dr. Griffin and her team were so kind and welcoming. Brady the dog helped relax my son while we waited briefly after pictures and X-rays. After walking us through the photos, Dr. Griffin throughly explained the best path forward. We will be back in a few months when my son has more adult teeth and he can’t wait!

The doctor and her staff treated me like family. She was conservative in her treatment options - what could & could not be done . I appreciated the follow up call with myself & with my regular dentist, too. I suggest to anyone to go for a free consultation. A plus is that you will meet an adorable therapy dog and your experience will be fun as well as informative. The advances in technology that are used here to make your diagnosis are nothing short of miraculous. You are in total comfort and you get completely understandable information. You can see for yourself what your mouth looks like in great detail just for starters. For anyone young or old, this place is the one to go to without any hesitation.

Would definitely recommend Dr. Griffin and her office staff! The office is very comfortable and inviting. Staff helpful and knowledgeable. Dr. Griffin made getting braces a more pleasant and fun experience, rather than stressful. And having Brady there was an extra plus!

I brought both my sons in for consultations and was greeted with pleasant staff and the most adorable dog. That moment I knew we were in the right office! Dr. Griffin is welcome and kind. She even called to check on my son the day he got his Invisalign, AFTER hours!! Great experience and I highly recommend this office to anyone considering orthodontic work.

Front desk and hygienist are absolutely of the highest quality in customer service and attentiveness. They ALWAYS go the extra mile to accommodate you in every way. They are friendly, extraordinarily spotless and efficient. Dr. Griffin is sooooooo smart, nice and has an amazing connection with her teen clientele. She is super approachable & gifted in her craft. I would highly recommend her & the practice to anyone in need of orthodontic work w/o a nanoseconds hesitation. Oh, Brady(the dog) cute!

Dr. Griffin and her entire staff are wonderful. She treated my oldest daughter and just this week put braces on my second daughter. She and her staff treat each patient with kindness and care, answering any questions we may have about the process. I would recommend Dr. Griffin to anyone needing orthodontic work.

My only regret is that I didn't find Dr. Griffin sooner (for my two older boys)! We interviewed two orthodontists before our visit to Dr. Griffin. She is knowledgable, kind and makes you feel as if you are the only patient she has. I've been passing her name on to everyone I know. Outstanding service, staff and work!

We’ve been coming here for a year and so far I’ve had no issues. The check in process is very easy and Dr. Griffin even brings her poodle in to play with the children/ patients (he is very friendly). The office is always clean and all the staff is great. I’ve been to other places where your treated like you’ve done something wrong for your teeth needing work but not this office. I recommend them for professionalism and for being knowledgeable with some high tech devices.

Goes beyond with follow up calls. Our 11 year old had an expander put in and he took the time to call us that evening to see how he was doing. Staff is always very friendly and attentive too! They really care about; and take the time to make sure that their patients’ well being are met! Thanks Dr. Griffin and all staff!! Rachel F
