Personalized Reminder needed!
Hi, my son continues to have orthodontics appointments every six month for check ups after he had his braces removed a year ago. However, he often forgets to bring his retainer to the appointment and thus has to reschedule it. It would be great if you send me a reminder, additionally to the time and date, to bring my son's retainer for the next appointment.

The best dental care for the entire family
My kids have been with PDO since they were little babies. This practice strives to provide the best customer service from the time you enter until you leave. I love that as my kids grow, the same people have seen them through their care. The assistants are involved and care as much about my kids dental hygiene as I do.

Way too long
Typically our orthodontist visits are pretty quick. They average around 30 minutes every 6 weeks. I plan for 45 minutes and we're always good to go. However, today it was an hour and fifteen minutes. Yep - 75 minutes for a routine 6 week check up. Evidently the assistant was unable to get a wire in place and after trying for 15 minutes, asked the doctor for help. Unfortunately, we were extremely late to our next appointment. It was frustrating but again, it is not the norm. .

Absolutely love this dentist! Our son was a little nervous about his first filling today and they made him very relaxed! They are amazing with children.

Dr. Thurston is the best!
We have been coming here since my daughter was 3. She is now 16. With consistent quality of care, ease of making appointments for multiple children, and great communication from all staff, but most importantly Dr. Thurston, we recommend this Dental office to everyone who asks for a referral! My daughter has had jaw pain and clicking in the past. Dr. Thurston has been a steady advocate for her to get a specialist to help look into it, and he has been a steady constant guide as she has gone through the orthodontic process. The Thurston (orthodontics) Dr Lam, and Dr Amodeo (dental), have always been kind, respectful gentle, communicative and never pushy about treatment. Simply the best.

A disappointing visit
We are long time patients and have been generally very satisfied with the treatment at this office. However, due to delays and perhaps a breakdown in communication, today's appointments, originally scheduled to take 1 1/2 hours ended up taking 3 hours and 10 minutes. That's a lot of school for a child to miss, especially since we were only given the option of a morning appointment.
