"If you haven't started braces yet for your child come and see Dr. Patino. My child was getting made fun of at school for his "rabbit" teeth so I took him into see Dr. Patino. Dr. Patino patiently and with detail explained his braces plan. We decided to do invisalign and 1 year later there is a remarkable difference in my sons teeth and the outcome is beautiful, I couldn't be happier. For a mom who has to see a child go through a rough stage in his life because of his teeth issues and to see the wonderful result done by a caring and encouraging Doctor is heart warming. Thank you Precise Orthodontics!"
