I went in for lingual braces and was told when I got there that they do not provide that service eventhough it said on Zocdoc that they do. They also told me that my insurance was not going to cover any of the types of braces and went forth to explain how much each one costed and how i could make monthly payments if i could not afford it. They did not realize that the overall treatment was costly regardless if you broke down the payments. They were not sypathetic at all and definitely not helpful. They just wanted money and that's it. Total waste of time! Very disappointed!

They were nice and the office was clean, open late. My technician was great but my orthodontist seemed kind of cold.Also their office manager/receptionist was pushy sales wise. They were nice but had I have more time I would have gone elsewhere to shop around. Perhaps it was late in the day, and the environment was off but I want to go to an orthodontist for my teeth health. Not retail. I understand everything is a business but some tact goes a long way.

I loved Dr Castronova, however his staff at the front desk was extremely rude and sassy. Probably will not return.

I don't see the value of an orthodontist office that is only open in my neighborhood one day a week.
