    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 😁

    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.

  • Michelle G. AvatarMichelle G.

    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!!

    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.

    Very client-centered. They make it as fun as it can be to go to the orthodontist—for the whole family. Also love the way they are so supportive of the community!

    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!
