    Paula (the hygienist) was wonderful with my son! He has anxiety about dentists, and she was so friendly and kind that he calmed quickly and even said he wanted to get braces! Very pleased with The crew at Backus Smiles.

    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...❤️

    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 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. 😊

    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 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!
