Getting my braces on the first visit I was so nervous. Also had a killer migraine! They did everything they could to make me comfy! Ice packs for my head, pillow, eye mask, :). Dr Stork was so gentle and always making sure I was comfortable. Best thing was I got a Popsicle when I was done. Yeah!! GREAT experience when not feeling great!! Thanks Dr Stork and Team! ;).

The staff is very nice, welcoming feels like you are a part of their crew, family, like you knew them forever!!! And Dr. Stork...well he is something else, he is high on life and that is a quality that you rarely see in people these days!!!!!!! Dr. Stork is a very unique person and a wonderful doctor, but he connects with you on a personal level, gets to know you and your family. So basically Stork Orthodontics is my family!!! From personal experience, and trust me I have had a lot of it, it is very hard to find a doctor that cares about the qualify of care they provide and not just about getting paid at the end of your 15 minute visit with them. I went through 6 different providers, clinics before I found the right doctor for my family and thank goodness it took me only once to find a perfect orthodontist!! One last thing, having braces as adult can be very intimidating, but Dr. Stork makes you feel good about it, never too late to get that perfect smile!!!

" I took my daughter to Dr. Stork for a consultation. As soon as we walked in, we were enthusiastically greeted and made to feel very welcome! Everyone was very friendly and helpful. My daughter, Megan, felt very comfortable as well. The staff is very informed and knowledgeable. We were in yesterday to have the braces put on. It was a great experience! I would highly recommend this office. They definitely put the customer/patient first! "

I'm very sorry I didn't write this sooner. I am so happy with the quality of service I have received at Stork Orthodontics. It's run like a well-oiled machine--highly organized and efficient, not-to-mention very clean. Everyone is friendly, knowledgeable, and my experience was very personalized. (I even got a photo with the orthodontist!) Altogether, the experience made me feel very special and reassured me that I'm in good hands. Thank you so much, Stork Orthodontics!

Tips & Advices
While going to the orthodontist can be difficult, sometimes it's necessary. If you are concerned about tooth alignment, feel your jaw shift, or are experiencing problems like difficulty chewing or grinding your teeth, it's time to see an orthodontist.
There are generally three types of braces patients can be fitted for at the orthodontist:
  • The more traditional option, bands, wrap around most of a patient's tooth.
  • Brackets are the most popular, applied directly to the tooth in metal or plastic form.
  • Lingual braces are brackets attached to the back of teeth.
People of all ages can wear braces to straighten their teeth, but it is most common to be fitted for these adjustments between the ages of 10 and 14. This is the time when teeth are better able to be straightened because the head and mouth are still developing.
The American Board of Orthodontics recommends finding a dental specialist that is board-certified, offers free or reduced-price consultations, and displays qualities such as trustworthiness, ability to communicate effectively, and attentiveness.
Orthodontists must complete a four-year undergraduate program to gain admission to dental school. After earning a Doctor of Dental Science degree at an accredited four-year dental program, students must then either complete a post-degree training program or one to two years residency in orthodontics. Then they need to earn a state license in order to practice. Certain states also require board certification.
