Both my nephews have had a wonderful experience with Dr Ingraham's office. Their teeth look amazing. He corrected their problems. And the office staff is very friendly and helpful. The boys smiles look fabulous! Would recommend to friends and family

Not a great experience. I was an adult patient but he never spoke to me. Felt like he was treating me like a teen when he would roll in, look at my mouth, tell his assistant a few notes to make and leave. Terrible interpersonal skills! Perhaps the most upsetting is that I was in braces with him for almost two years, had to move out of town and the new orthodontist, who had to "fix" things-another18 months. Dr. I got paid 90%ish of $8k then I had to pay $1.5k more to new ortho to fix his work

The office staff is so very accommodating and courteous both in person or over the phone. The entire staff makes you feel very welcomed, keeps you informed on your child's progress and any directions they need to follow. Dr Ingraham is very thorough and great with his patients. I highly recommend this practice!

BEWARE This man RUINED my teeth, the absolute worse experience I have ever had. He was very kind and the staff was helpful, but after he shaved my front tooth down to make it look "even", I had to get VENEERS. On top that the dental problems this man caused me have cost me thousands to repair, including getting braces AGAIN. DO NOT TRUST THIS MAN WITH YOUR TEETH. He should have his license revoked! Disgusting medical neglect. FIND ANOTHER ORTHODONTIST.

Getting an appointment is a nightmare, they actually canceled one of my appointments due to short staff. This means that I have to have my braces on even longer
