“We are really happy with our experience with Dr. Waugh and the staff at Smile Doctors. An appointment ran (much) longer than expected as a new appliance didn’t fit as expected for my daughter, and they were really apologetic and even sent us off with a gift card. They went the extra mile to let us know that they cared about our time and orthodontic care. We believe it speaks volumes and we are grateful for a practice that cares.”
