“I’ve been extremely happy with my experience at Smile Doctors. They’ve been totally up-front about my treatment & payment, gentle & thorough with my care, & I never had to wait more than a few minutes to be seen, even when there was a scheduling mix-up. I’d put off getting my top teeth aligned for years, despite my regular dentist’s urgings that it was necessary for the long-term stability of my lower teeth. I’d feared a high price & painful process, but found just the opposite at Smile Doctors. The price has been very reasonable & included a flexible payment plan, & the process has been completely painless—essentially pleasant thx to the state-of-the art technologies, friendly staff, & Dr Waugh’s gentle demeanor. Highly Recommended!”
