    Dr. Backus is great! She’s our daughter’s orthodontist and she and her team do an excellent job with communication. Convenient location just off of Hwy 31. Couldn’t be happier with their service.

    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.

    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!

    I ♥️ Dr Backus and her staff. Their primary patients are younger children. Here i am at 61 years young and just got my braces off. I was treated with the utmost respect. These ladies are very knowledgeable, compassionate and caring. I would recommend them to anyone.

    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!
