Thumbs up and stars

“My sweet Atticus has a pretty severe overbite, and Dr. Johnson and her team were able to provide top-notch care and put in a dental device to move his teeth rather than pulling them out. LK and Eva were great at communicating, setting up appointments, and following up. Dr. Johnson provided me with all the information I needed and helped me choose the best option for Atticus. I couldn't be more pleased with the care we received.”
