Seemed nice but came time for x-rays, etc. , Never called me to go over results then I called didn't provide any solution to my concerns and mentioned surgery, pretty veg not really sure if other option. Try to find answers else where! DON'T GO HERE IF WANT COMPASSION , ANWERS WITH OPTIONS THAT BEST SERVE YOU!.
Sorry that you were not satisfied with our office. We make every effort to address our patients' individual concerns and questions. Some patients require a more complex treatment plan.

While Dr Tucker was my orthodontist, without explanation, he passed me onto his apprentice/partner rather than providing continuity of care. I did not feel respected as a patient. His understudy may need practice but I was not prepared to be practice on. Dr. Tucker shouId respect his patients just as they respected him for choosing him in the first place! Office staff is disorganized and unattentive - they had lost/misplaced my retainers and wanted to charge me $500 for their mistake!
Sorry that you were not satisfied with our office. My partner is a board certified orthodontist with many years of experience. However, patients may request to see the doctor with which they feel most comfortable. Most of our staff has been with us for many years. I am sorry there was a miscommunication during your visit.
