I trust this Dr. for many reasons. First, he is a little older than some orthodontists and is very seasoned in his experience. His age by no means renders him out of date though. He's up to date on all techniques and also the 'extras' that kids like.
He has video games for children to play while they wait in the lobby. He also provides colored rubber bands (on the braces), if children want them in their choice of colors.
These frivolous extras don't take away from the serious abilities of this Dr. I have full confidence because my husband went to him as a teenager and his teeth are still straight as can be. I however went to an ortho in Chicago and my teeth are moving back to their original places! So, to see my husband's teeth still in pristine condition (after 17 years post braces), tells me this is some good quality work.
So, it's no surprise that we are now bringing our daughter there to receive her braces. Dr. F. still has video games and he still caters to his patients wants and needs. His office waiting area is serene with fish aquariums situated in key spots. Parking is a little cramped, but only because he's in a busy office building, and has a lot of patients.
His staff is friendly and helpful and their hours are accommodating to most schedules. He has more than one location also. They handle the filing of insurance for you and will put the costs you have to pay on a payment plan for your convenience. It's no wonder that this Dr. has so many referrals! All thumbs up!
