Raving Reviews

I don't think I can say enough good things about our experience with your office. It begins the moment we step through the doors as we are greeted by the big smiles and friendly hellos of Megan and KrisAnn, and it doesn't stop until we've left. Every single one of you are such friendly, kind people and you have managed to make a little bit of pain an experience that's bearable. That may seem like it's easy for me to say, since I'm not the one undergoing treatment, but neither JR or Rachel have ever dreaded having an appointment. You've come up with some really fun incentives for them to work hard to achieve.

I have always appreciated how kind my kids have been treated by everyone at your office. It doesn't matter which one of the fantastic chairside assistants worked with my kids, they were always pleasant, cheerful and fun to be with. Even when JR didn't do what he was supposed to, he never felt belittled or embarrassed by your encouragement to try a little harder. Obviously, Rachel's following what she was asked to has brought great results for her, and she hasn't stopped smiling since last Friday when the braces came off. The thank-you note to Mom and Dad was such a cute touch, and we'll treasure both the note and picture always.

I also want to say how much I have admired Dr. Broadwater's upbeat relationship with JR and-Rachel. They really think you're cool, and mention that to their friends. I know you have such a successful business because of the way you treat everyone, and I appreciate how you have always been so communicative with me. There has never been any doubt or confusion about your plan of action and suggestions, and it has been such a pleasure to know and work with you.

Please know that whenever I talk with anyone and the subject of orthodontic work comes up, 'I have and will continue to highly recommend you to all I come in contact with. You do excellent work, and I know we will all be pleased for years to come. Thank you again for all you have done for Rachel and JR. Even though Rachel's appointments will be less frequent with you, JR still has a little ways to go, and I anticipate that I'll still feel like we're all friends for years to come.
