Park Ridge, IL |
My 2 children were treated by Dr. Peterson, our experience was a "10" out of "10" from the first appointment to seeing my children's beautiful smiles! Dr. Peterson and staff are professional, happy to explain the various treatments, offered us options for payment and the end result was delivered as expected. I would highly recommend Dr. Peterson!.
