    Dr Backus and his staff make the entire orthodontic process very pleasant for the entire family. Everyone is so knowledgeable yet very kind and approachable. I feel like they truly know my child and her needs and they meet those needs. Dr Backus is very thorough at the first meeting in explaining the goals for orthodontic treatment and the financial commitment. He patiently answered all of our questions, and our daughters questions, and we had a full understanding of what to expect short and long term. The front office staff are very sweet, patient and so helpful when making appointments and giving feedback from the visit when I would forget to ask questions. It is easy to get appointments quickly and they are great about working in patients when a repair needs to be made the same day. The office is very patient and non-patient friendly. My younger children (future patients) don’t mind going to Dr Backus office with their older sister because they have fun there and enjoy the office. This pleasant experience for the younger kids will be a big benefit in terms of them not being anxious when they become the patient. Finally, my daughter just got her braces off and we couldn’t be more pleased with the results. She had several challenging issues to repair and Dr Backus exceeded those goals. He is a pleasure to work with and we will definitely be back.

    Dr. Backus did my braces over 15 years ago! People who don't even know me keep coming up to me to tell me how straight and beautiful my teeth are. I am so thankful that he was my orthodontist. My smile is one of my favorite things about myself and it always gives my ego a boost when other people recognize it as well. I've even had several dentists ask me who did my braces because they are amazed as well.
