Excellent! I am an older patient so I had reservations of being looked at as being a vain old lady! I thought everyone would make fun of me. Instead I felt so comfortable and treated with so much respect. If I ever had a problem no matter how trivial it was handled with clear concise immediate answers. I have already recommended Davis and Davis to my friends and their families. I thank you for filling mr bucket list I have had since I was a little girl. I always wanted straight teeth and you made a wish come true. I am a kindergarten teacher and always-was so embarrassed when my littlekindergartners would look closely at my mouth and say you have a loose tooth. They didn't mean anything but it sure heart my feelings. So orthodontics went on my bucket list and I got older worried that it may never happen. Davis and Davis made it happen. Thank you!

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 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.

Davis and Davis did a great job. My son was always comfortable coming to his appointments and the time from beginning his braces until they came off was very quick!
