Patient Testimonial

Taylor and Tina with Dr. Sushko
Dr. Sushko explains a procedure to Taylar and her mom, Tina.

"I took Taylar to three other orthodontists for evaluations. None of them could compare to Dr. Sushko’s plan. We got the best service and attention anyone could ask for. Taylar said she would not go to any other dentist. She had braces and expanders on for only 10 months with great results. Her mouth was in really bad shape and it looks great now. "
