"Smile Doctors did a great job with my son's braces. He wore them for ten months and his teeth looked amazing after they were taken off. Smile Doctors gave us a device to take pictures of his braces every week at home using my phone, so we only had to come in for appointments every 8 weeks or so. The pricing was transparent, with no additional costs tacked on after the initial agreement. Staff were pleasant and answered all our questions, and made my son feel comfortable with the process. Dr. Edgmon is very detail-oriented, and he took care of every tiny thing, down to the fine hand work of removing the glue once the brackets were taken off."
