  • I can't say enough about how pleased we've been with Michael Richards and his professional, friendly staff. If you want an orthodontist who is competent, friendly and treats your child with respect and won't try and push more work than what's needed- this is the orthodontist to go to. We were referred to him by a friend whose son was very sensitive to having work done in his mouth. I was impressed by how he was treated. We love this office and have referred several people who are now patients and love him, too.~ Cruise Barry
  • They are great they care about what’s happening in your life and actually remember who you are. They actually want to make your teeth straight and make sure you understand what’s going on every step of the way and makes sure you’re in a agreement. They always can make me smile and they are great people. Best orthodontics ever.~ Tiffany Cordon
