    Their ability to work with elementary-age kids is incredible. We tried a couple of other places and they didn’t seem to be very patient or kid-friendly. Everyone is always patient, extremely helpful and friendly. Dr. Backus goes above and beyond during treatment and with special events and contests for her patients. I would highly recommend this office for anyone needing braces and especially those needing early treatment.

    Staff is very caring and professional. They make sure you don’t leave with any unanswered questions. Which I loved! Place is very clean and cozy. Love how they have a sweet stations. They take nice and clear pictures of your teeth which is great when it’s time to see the transformation. Would recommend to everyone!!

    We love Dr.Backus! I love the “Backus Bucks” incentives. It helps with the kids accountability, and it’s something for them to look forward with each visit. We also love Martie...❤️

  • Emily B. AvatarEmily B.

    Dr. Backus and her staff are so friendly, and they put everyone at ease. They explain exactly what to expect, from the treatment to the cost. And their office and the things they do to motivate their patients are a kid’s dream.

    Great first time experience for going over all the details of getting braces for my daughter braces for the first time. Not only did we learn a lot, I was also confident in investing in a healthy beautiful smile for my daughter. You ladies are awesome 😁

  • Kim C. AvatarKim C.

    Dr Backus is the BEST around. She cares so much for her patients and takes time to explain every little detail and makes her patients feel comfortable at their appointments!
    She is great to her staff also and shows them how much she appreciates them.
    So if you are looking for a fun, exciting but knowledgeable office... this is the orthodontic office for you!

    We moved to the area a month after getting my daughter’s braces. Dr. Backus was more than willing to except her as a patient and work with a different type of bracket than she normally uses. Definitely a smooth transition, at least on my end. 😉 We were so pleased, when it was time for our other daughter to get her braces we went back. They both have beautiful smiles!!

  • April W. AvatarApril W.

    Dr. Backus and her staff are outstanding! They are all so friendly, helpful, and definitely understanding (especially when I lost my retainer in Hawaii at age 13). I never had to wait over 5 minutes to be seen, always right on time. I spent many years in this office and I would highly recommend to anyone of all ages!
