Invisalign

Invisalign clear aligners provide an effective way to straighten your teeth while remaining virtually invisible. Wearing the comfortable, customized aligners will gradually shift your teeth into their correct position. Correcting teeth alignment is imperative, not just cosmetically, but for overall health. Invisalign offers the best of both worlds: comfortable, efficient straightening with an essentially invisible appearance.

I wouldn’t go to him if he was the last dentist on earth. Arrogant and rude

Dr. does not properly greet me, look me in the face, call me by name, or engage in polite conversation (ie. How are you today? etc.). Stands just outside of my peripheral line of sight when speaking to me. At every routine visit there seems to be some extra fillings or work to be done that needs me to return for another visit and, of course, pay more money. Office staff friendly but this does not make up for dentist demeanor, in my opinion. Quality of work is OK.

The dentist and all the staff are affable and polite. On my first visit after my examination they laid out a complete treatment plan including to amount my dental insurance would pay and the amount that I would have to pay out of pocket for the whole plan. They were even able to start the procedures that same afternoon. They also provided resources to finance out of pocket costs for procedures that my insurance would not pay for.
