Dr Ellis and Lindgren are wonderful! The office is comfortable and bright. Staff are kind and patient.
Great team! They keep their appointments running on time. I like how the have keep us informed every step in the process.
Excellent orthodontist— staff and doctors are all caring, and gentle and they make the process of braces as fun for my daughter as possible. They also do free evaluations every about every 6 months to watch a child’s mouth and plan for the best time to start braces. You won’t pay a penny for any of these evaluations. They watched my daughter for 2 years before she ever started a treatment plan. Highly recommend them!
Dr Ellis, thank you so much for the amazing experience of having braces. Yes, I just said that. After going to my neighborhood orthodontist in Lansdowne, I decided to give Dr Ellis a visit. My Son used him years ago and he was fantastic then. My neighborhood ortho recommend braces on top and bottom for a ridiculous cost and many years. Dr Ellis said he could do my adjustments just on the bottom, which is where I had a tooth pulled, and do it at a fair cost and be done in a little over a year. He then locked me in for Thursday appointments at the end of the day, since Im in Burke every Thursday, and its a 45 minute drive from my house. His customer service is the absolute best. His staff is so professional and friendly and they made the year so pleasant. I hardly had any soreness at all and my teeth came out looking great. I cannot recommend Dr Ellis and his staff enough. if your in the market for braces, you have to go see Dr Ellis, he is simply the best!!!!
Ignore Faith Chan's Post.
My daughter has always been given wonderful care here (both Burke and Annadale offices)! This morning truly touched me. In the chair next to my daughter was a small boy, maybe 8 years old. They were trying to get an imprint and he was having a hard time with a gag reflex. The staff was SO gentle with him!! One was holding his feet, moving his legs, and counting in a very patient voice. Another was holding the imprint and encouraging him. He ended up throwing up and they said it was okay and he was doing great, still with soft voices and smiles. Our staff person reached over to give them paper towels and when the imprint was done, they cleaned him up, with smiles and positive words. I was overwhelmed with their patience, kindness, and understanding for him!! After brushing his teeth, he left with a smile! Who could ask for better care for kids!! An incredible office I would recommend to anyone!
All the front desk workers greet and receive visitors with a smile! Check-in is a breeze😄. I have had two in braces and their smiles do tell the story of their care. Jackie is bar far the best in back! All workers are unified as a team. One of my children is a special needs child and they have accommodated his each and every need. 5 stars indeed!😎
The staff is great: friendly, have a sense of humor and always greet you. I only had one emergency visit and they fit me in within 10 minutes!!!
Wonderful staff from the waiting room to the Dentist’s office to check-out. Pleasant, welcoming, and professional. Highly recommend!
Wonderful staff and doctors...wouldn't go anywhere else!
Dr. Ellis and Dr. Lindgren have treated 2 of my kids with braces and the experience has been wonderful! They are both very caring, great with kids and excellent orthodontists.
