"Dr Schaefer and his staff are amazing! Brittany’s smile and sweet personality immediately makes you feel comfortable and confident that you are in the right place. Kayla was amazing!!! She explained everything thoroughly. She took her time with my son and was very gentle and used the proper hygiene. She also made sure that every need was met and every question was answered before our appointment was complete. Thank you so much to the smile doctors crew!"

“After coming from a horrible orthodontist office I was scared to try another office especially having to pay out of pocket again. They put our mind at ease and took us in and are making sure my kiddos get the best treatment. Brittany in the office is pretty amazing to 😉”
