Happy Patients: It’s what makes our day
Thank you so much for your patience and understanding in treating our daughter Katelyn. What could have been extremely traumatic ended very positively. It was a terrific experience -- I will be singing your praises to everyone I know!
Dr. Hickory's office is wonderful! I transferred after moving to the DC area midway through my Invisalign trays and was very nervous about having a lapse in information sharing/ difficulty in transferring files but the staff handled it with ease. I just had some minor changes but my teeth now are perfect and exactly what I wanted. Dr. Hickory, the front desk, and all the technicians are courteous, professional, and obviously good at what they do because my teeth are beautiful!!!
I’m impressed. The office is nice and the assistants are competent. The price for Invisalign® was very fair, and it’s been working like a charm. We’ve left other practices because their prices were outrageous, so this is a welcome relief.
We have always had a great experience here! My grandson is the patient. I especially adore Dr. Shin but everyone is lovely!!
