“My consultation was amazing! Dr. Woods made me feel comfortable with any choice I made regarding braces. He explained his process to me in a way that I could understand. He did not make me feel rushed when he started my evaluation, and even shared some jokes with me. He is an awesome orthodontist, and I hope others feel the same way I do!”

“My son Jose Marin's appointment with Dr. David K. Woods and his assistant Jessica S. was a very pleasant experience. A professional, friendly environment. Dr. Woods explained and answered our questions. Very happy that my son started his braces treatment in this office and with the expectation of seeing great results. I highly recommend this office.”
