So happy and can't stop smilingBobby, South Africa, 12 05 22

I was always afraid of dentists and haven't seen one in over 16 years. At the age of nearly 50, I decided it was time to have my teeth straightened. Dr Chodree did an amazing job. It took just over a year (because I didn't always wear my elastics as she instructed) and my teeth have never looked better. So happy and can't stop smiling. The billing process was painless as well and the staff are all amazing.
