“Ever since high school, I knew I would go to Dr. Waugh to get my braces. My best friend in high school went to Dr. Waugh. Her teeth were beautiful when her braces got removed! Dr. Waugh and his staff are truly Amazing! Ella was so helpful and kind assisting me with my Invisalign. She answered all my questions and stayed over on her lunch break to demonstrate and instruct me on how to place the rubber band correctly on my teeth. I’ve been wanting braces since middle school! Now that I’m an adult, I’m truly happy I made the decision to get the Invisalign! I don’t have any pain from the installment. If you’re questioning whether or not to get Invisalign vs braces, I highly recommend Invisalign! If you wear a mouth guard at night, you can easily wear Invisalign daily. Thank you Dr. Waugh for making my dream come true!”
