My experience with Dr. Guinn has been completely pleasant. My daughter was getting braces with another orthodontist and we had to go to Dr. Guinn‘s office for an extraction. Dr Quinn and her staff took such good care of my daughter with so much compassion and empathy we automatically canceled my daughters contract Decided to go with Dr. Guinn’s Smile Agency!!!!!!

Dr. Guinn was very helpful to me in my time of getting orthodontic treatment. My mother is always very strict about where I get my care from and she chose Dr. Karen Guinn. She is definitely someone to come and see. She does it all and she always has a happy and funny attitude about her, well at least when she is around me. She is an amazing She is very nice and helpful when she can be.

Dr. Guinn was initially warm and friendly, but that all stops once you sign the contract. Very poor patient care and communication. She recommended a Herbst device that made my daughter's mouth swell with infection and painful oozing sores. We tired several times with it on and off per her advice, always with same result. They lumped this charge of $950 in with the original $5,500, so we had to pay for all that suffering. Trays are often late. We have been waiting for months for new ones.
