    Both of my daughters were treated by Dr. Backus for braces. Their teeth are beautiful! As a parent, I also appreciated the staff’s friendliness and willingness to work with my schedule. They often held events or contests for kids to participate in. My girls also thought the TVs on the ceiling were cool.

    Dr. Backus and her staff were great. Everyone is very friendly and professional. I never had to wait long before I was seen. Having Dr. Backus as my orthodontist was the best decision. She pays attention to detail and always made sure I was comfortable. Dr. Backus and her staff always explained each procedure before it was performed. I appreciated that very much because it took away the anxiety. I am very happy with my results. I now have a perfectly beautiful smile. Thank you for everything. 😊

    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!!

    Great option for orthodontics work. Friendly staff and they are so helpful! Any place that serves good coffee and fresh cookies to the parents is a five star option!!!

    I’ve been going to this place for a while now and from what I’ve experienced, I can ensure you that you’re in good hands. The people there treat you kindly and as gently as they can, they let you know what they’re going to do so you are prepared and when they are done they tell you what to expect for your next appointment and remind you what you can and can’t do and give advice about your braces, you can even ask them questions whenever you have one and if something were to ever happen to your braces then rest assured my friend because they’ll give you a number where one of their employees will gladly get whatever issue you have fixed. They have coffee and cookies so it’s kid friendly and adult friendly. Rest assured that you are in good hands at this place.😁

    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.

  • 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.

  • Johnny E. AvatarJohnny E.

    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!
