What Our Clients Say About Us

  • "I just had my braces put on my upper teeth today and Nancy did a great job! I was a little nervous going in but right away everyone there made me feel welcome and comfortable. It didn't take very long at all and it didn't hurt. Nancy explained everything she was doing and was super nice. Everyone at Ross Orthodontics are VERY nice and friendly. I am very happy that we chose to go there."
    Logan M.
  • "So Grateful!! I can not thank Dr Ross & his associates enough! Straightened out my bite & teeth has changed my confidence. I smile with freedom instead of covering my mouth or keeping my lips pursed. I feel so much more beautiful & sexy. My husband loves how much I smile now too. Thank you for being so particular."
    Jeanette S.
  • "Excellent Service! Love the laid-back atmosphere with excellent service! We had consults at 2 other places before coming to Ross Orthodontics, and my daughter did not feel comfortable. I appreciate the smiling faces and the quick responses to questions and the convenient scheduling of appointments. We aren't quite through the process, but so far so good."
