“I cannot recommend Janna enough. She has a wealth of knowledge she shares with you to allow you to make sense of the options and treatment available. Janna not only saved me financially, she made the whole process with my son so easy and even fun. I am more than happy with our results so far, it’s been much quicker than expected, and I’m just very grateful we found her!”Adriana Hill
“My 5 year old son have some issues with his teeth and jaw, there’s not quite enough space, but since seeing Janna his bottom teeth now have gaps and have straightened out! His upper arch has widened as well, hoping for more progress as we start more exercises. Janna is very patient and knows how to treat kids gently and with respect. She knows what she’s doing and I am confident we won’t have to worry about braces for my son in the future! Thank you!”Audi Threeonefour
