    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.

    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.

    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.

  • Tamika M. AvatarTamika M.

    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 😁

  • April L. AvatarApril L.

    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!!

  • 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!
