"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!"

“Dr. Waugh and Ms. Julie were amazing in every way possible. They took their time with us and explained every step in great detail. All questions were answered to satisfaction and all financial possibilities that accommodate our needs were explored. Dr. Waugh is very professional with a fatherly-caring Aura. I had my little daughter with me and Dr. Waugh cared enough to have a look at her after I mentioned in a side note that she snores. My oldest was very nervous but they did not fail to make sure she is comfortable and asked about her opinion. All in all, this has been a wonderful first encounter and I highly recommend them to anyone who need an Orthodontist. They genuinely care about their patients and this needs to be acknowledged. Thank you, Team Smile Doctors!”

“The staff is always nice and polite. My daughter and I both go to Smile Doctors. The place is clean and we don’t feel rushed during our appointments. I love that we can use a scanner for our mouth to help keep track of our progress.”
