Crissy and her team (Amber, Danielle, Shannon) are the BEST! Professional, great sense of humor, always on top of things. Very easy to schedule appointments and they make sure to remind you ahead of time. Baked cookies greet you when youwalk in - amazing. If you have any orthodontic needs, do yourself a favor and go to Crissy!!!

I'm new to the area so I trusted some reviews on zocdoc and booked an appointment. Glad I did! I went to get my retainer adjusted. They were very polite. Dr. Markova listened to my concerns and did a great jobadjusting my retainers they are much more comfortable! She gave me some advice for my baby tooth extraction and implant placement as well! For any additional ortho concerns Dr. Markova will be my first stop!

Wow, I didn't know dentist offices this awesome existed. Very bright and modern facility, starting with a nice waiting area and pleasant person at the front desk who actually smiles at you and welcomes you while knowing what she's doing. Thedoctor came out to greet me and gave me a tour of the facility. We then went into her private office where we talked about my mouth piece. She then spent time with me checking my bite and mouth piece and how everything fit. She said that I didn't need any adjustment or a new mouth piece. She was very nice and walked me back to the front desk. There was no charge for the consultation! Shannon at the desk was wonderful. The modern x-ray machine gives out less radiation and the dental chairs are facing the window with a great view from the 8th floor.

Office staff was very friendly and informative. Dr.Markova made my visit very pleasant. I've already told my friends and they are going to get their braces there also. I would recommend this office to anyone looking for a orthodontist that isvery knowledgeable and can listen and understand your concerns. P.s they have all new state of the art machines and instruments. ;)

I've been seeing Dr. Markova for orthodontics for about four months now. Everything has been going great so far and she and her staff are super responsive - they always answer any questions I have within a few hours. They trulyrepresent a medical team that cares about its patients.

Dr. Markova and her staff are wonderful!! I was running late because of work and they were very accommodating. They understood and they did what they could to get me in and out. I went in for a consultation and Iam going back to get my scans for Invisalign! The staff is very nice and Shannon has done everything she could to work with me on making this affordable for me! I've contacted her many times over the last few days and she is always very pleasant to speak with me and has never seemed like I was annoying her or anything. She's been extremely helpful and although the office is currently out of network for me I changed it just so I could go to this office. They also gave me a cute little gift for coming to do my consultation there :)! This could go on forever haha but bottom line is I would refer anyone here and would definitely tell you to go!
