Friendly helpful staff. Dr. Briceno isn't the epitome of professionalism. She is very knowledgeable and takes the time to explain and address any concerns. Highly recommend!

Dr. Crespi and staff are extremely professional. My visit was a consultation for braces. An X ray was performed followed by the consultation. Dr. Crespi was informative and straight to the point. Which I like. Once the assessment was completedthe office manager provided braces and payment options. Very precise. I've seen several Orthodontics for a consultation. So far Dr. Crespi is my favorite. I have one more orthodontic to see. I'm almost certain I may stay with Dr. Crespi.

Dr. Carmen Briceno Crespi was amazing! Prior to booking her on Zocdoc I read her reviews and they were good but I really did not except such great service. Her staff was not only friendly but thoughtful and that is hugeto me. They were extremely tentative and made sure I was completely comfortable while I was waiting (which wasn't long at all). It's very family oriented and you can tell they really care about their patients. I would highly recommend her not only because she is knowledgeable but because she made my whole experience there a pleasure.

It turns out that their office didn't take our type of insurance, but they were able to work out a payment plan with us that we could afford! Everyone was kind, gentle, and it was an extremely welcoming environment. I havesevere anxiety, and I felt very comfortable and relaxed the whole time I was there.
