See why patients love Brightside

My children and I had an amazing experience at Brightside Orthodontics. Transparent pricing, flexible monthly payments, and customer service that shows they truly care. I would highly recommend anyone looking for orthodontic treatment to visit the office. Knowledgeable doctor, friendly staff, and very reasonable pricing for the area!

- Vanita D.

Brightside Orthodontics is wonderful. The entire team was so helpful, answered all of my questions, and was so kind and enjoyable to talk with. They were calm, careful, and professional, clearly communicated what needed to be done, what can wait, and the (reasonable) cost. Informative and supportive care in an incredibly clean office made for an excellent experience!
