I have had nothing but excellent care from Dr Payne and his staff. Years ago I was diagnosed as needing jaw surgery and orthodontics to correct my malformed jaws. I put it off for many years, not being comfortable with other orthodontists I have met. It's a huge process, very life changing. But I am 100% comfortable with Dr Payne handling my care and know he is the best at handling complex cases. I have complete trust in his skills and knowledge. Simply the best there is!

from the first time I came in for an evaluation the staff have all been very understanding and patient with my schedule. I now have 3 kids currently in treatment and a 4th that will be starting treatment when I can. The staff all work with me and find a way to schedule all my appointments around my very busy schedule and get all kids in at the same time so I don't have to make multiple trips. They work with financial situations as well as explain the treatment completely ...

As a woman nearing 40 I was hesitant about Orthodontics later in life. Dr. Payne is so straight forward in his work and discussed all possible options before recommending Invisalign. I have been so happy with the process! I have had them for 18 months and have seen a drastic improvement in my smile. I couldn't be happier! From the moment you walk in the door Stephanie greets you with a smile and the entire staff is always so accommodating. The staff are so friendly and ge...

I got my braces on in seventh grade and had a relatively bad overbite and 2 and a half years later, every flaw that my teeth had are now fixed. All of the people working here always told me exactly what they were doing and waiting a while to get my braces off was definitely worth it in the end.

From beginning to the end Dr. Payne, Cheryl, Stephanie and the rest of the staff have been beyond exceptional!! I believe Dr. Payne has strived for the "perfect" smile. I really appreciated his professionalism, integrity, knowledge and quality of care at the highest level. There were a few bumps along the way but everyone worked with concern, diligence and love. I really know that Dr. Payne was the one for Noah to achieve the greatest smile ever!!

I had a wonderful experience with Dr. Payne and his lovely assistants! All of the ladies were so kind, caring, fun, and extremely intelligent and knowledgeable about their work. I never had any issues with trusting them completely. Everybody always had a smile and the cookies at the front desk are awesome! 10/10 would recommend, especially for kids, because they really make you feel at home and comfortable.
