Dr. Dale and his entire staff were so very friendly and informative. Showing Keira how to sign in and giving her a tour of the office really put her at ease. I appreciated the ability to have an initial consultation with Dr. Davis to get an idea what the plan is for my daughter. We look forward to treatment down the road.

Dealing with Davis and Davis orthodontics for many years for my four children and myself. We have had a wonderful experience with the whole practice from Dr. Dale Davis to his whole staff. They always go above and beyond with all their patients. It is always a pleasure dealing with them and would highly recommend their office.

Dr. Dale was very patient and took his time to be sure my daughter's smile was just right. This was a very tricky case since her teeth moved exceptionally fast. The end result (for both of my children) is beautiful.
