I liked this experience and just remember to actually teach the patient how to use the rubber band patterns
|
Dr. Quo was amazing! I love my new teeth and she is great to work with.
|
I had an amazing experience getting my braces off and I thought that everyone that worked on the process here did an incredible job. There's honestly nothing I think you guys could do better.
|
I had a really good experience here. It's a really nice environment. The only problem is that it's so busy!
|
I think that it was pretty great as far as trips to the ortho go. My only complaint is that I always feel like I'm not brig told what's happening, like how I come into an appointment and find out I have to wear a retainer for life, or bands that don't let me talk.
|
I had one problem with miscommunication on a date of an appointment. But other than that I had a great experience. Everyone one is always really nice and I never didn't look forward to an orthodontist appointment.
|
I did have some trouble with long wires. A couple times I had to come back in to fix a wire that was cutting into my cheek. Rather than that it was great.
|
I really enjoyed my experience.
|
I'm really happy with my smile. Even though it took a while to perfect, it finally looks great and perfect. I don't think there is anything to improve. This experience has been perfect.
|
I thought the service was good!
|
Really good
|
I hate braces but ur staff was very helpful and kind . I also like the raffles . It gives me opportunities to earn money and is a fun way to engage patients. A way to improve to my experience is to have more available after school hours as it's hard to skip school. Overall, my experience has been very good??keep up the good with work
|
It was a fun near two year experience, and yes, braces can be painful. The staff here are really nice and welcoming and I love the monthly games you guys host. The environment is fun, and isn't full like the doctors office or dentist. I loved my experience here. Thank you for being my orthodontist team!
|
You guys were amazing, so I don't know what could be changed!
|
Everything was perfect! Thank you!
|
Always great!
|
You don't need to improve anything.
|
I really don't think there is anything to Improve. They did an amazing job from all aspects, from respect to anything amd everything teeth.
|
Put less pressure on the teeth when fixing wires
|
Found everything fine.
|
Overall my experience was great but to improve in the future you could be more cautious when you're putting the wires, etc.
|
Not much. The experience was fast, efficient, and very effective.
|
At first I was not sure if I wanted braces, but now I am super happy that my teeth have improved and look way better than they did before.
|
Everyone who works here is super nice
|
Great experience
|
It was a good experience and the braces came off in a timely matter. The employees are also very nice and friendly.
|
I thought that the entire process was very organized, the result is great! The only thing that I think could have been improved upon is communication. There were a few discrepancies, but everything else was wonderful.
|
I very much enjoyed my experience. I'm so glad that I could complete my treatment as fast as I did and I am very happy with the results.
|
yay we love you! Test Test Test

It was cool and fun, but I hated that I couldn't eat some food, and that I had to wear rubber bands.
