We had a fantastic experience here. The staff were knowledgeable and friendly, the facility was modern and clean, and most important of all, kid-friendly.
"Before I had my surgery my jaw seemed misaligned and my top teeth would bite down on my tongue that was sticking out of the side of my mouth. The surgery has corrected the problem and I am so grateful for Dr. Thomas delivering a beautiful smile. He can correct any problem, don’t hesitate call immediately."
