Dr. Joe and his staff are the best!! My son just got his braces off and his teeth look fantastic. Course of treatment was always clearly explained and they do a phenomenal job of trying to schedule appointments around school and sports. Very friendly and knowledgeable! Would highly recommend.

Excellent experience with Dr. Joe and the entire staff! My daughter got her braces off today and she's thrilled with the outcome. We interviewed 3 Orthodontists before choosing Dr. Joe's practice and I feel that we made a great decision. Everything went as scheduled. Thank you!!
