Dr. Smith is a wonderful orthodontist. He is great with the kids and makes the process fun for them. Dr. Smith and his staff make everyone feel so welcome from the moment you walk in. I'd recommend to anyone looking for braces or invisalign!

Dr. Smith has a pleasant demeanor at first, but he was inappropriate with my child, saying hurtful things about hygiene and holding him down physically to force a procedure.
