Everyone was incredibly friendly & helpful.

Everyone was incredibly friendly & helpful. I made the appt. the day before & was planning on just going in for information but I felt so comfortable with the office staff & Dr. McDowell that I went ahead with treatment the same day! Very excited for the results!

Amy N.

A pleasant and successful experience.

I was very reluctant to start my son on braces due to his age at the time. Although it was much needed because of his narrow jaw structure. With the staff support that we received from McDowell this has been a very pleasant and successful process. Only one minor repair in nearly a year. Thank you all!!

Susan P.

Dental Staff is friendly and helpful.

Emma was very happy with the care she received in getting braces. We only had 1 problem with a bracket breaking within the first 24 hrs. This was not due to anything she ate, only had soft foods first several days. She had to go back in to remove broken bracket and will have to go back in again to replace. Dental Staff is friendly and helpful. Office environment is comfortable.

Now I love my smile!

Just wanted to say thank you. I was on the fence about getting braces for the 2nd time (as an adult, in 2015) but I’m glad I did it and had a great experience with your office. Now I just graduated with my masters and felt great about my smile!
