This practice is very well run, professional and very knowledgeable . Kelly and Cheryl were amazingly welcoming and very informative. Dr Grinbaum is extremely thorough and very clear on time of wear, possible discomfort and results. I wasshown a digital image of what my teeth would look like after treatment. I have been searching for orthodontic treatment behind the teeth for a while. I am so glad I found this practice.

I had a great braces experience with Dr. Grinbaum. I had incognito (behind the teeth) on the top and regular braces on the bottom. She gave very realistic expectations throughout the process (including how long the braces would likely be onfor). She takes a lot of care to make sure your teeth look perfect and you're happy with them. Appointments sometimes feel a bit rushed, but the results you get are great.

Dr. Grinbaum was knowledgable and provided me with several options. I went for braces consultation. She took her time, examed my teeth and did a 3D animation of how my teeth would like based on which type of braces i wentwith. She wasnt in a rush amd her staff was just an knowledgable. Her office manager Cheryl reviewed the financials for each option. All in all a great experience.

She is a doctor who you can trust! She puts all her care and heart into her work and takes an excellent care of her patients. We had an overly positive experience. My teenage son even doesn't mind to wake upearly morning to get to the city before the school, he trusts Doctor Grinbaum so very much and always is visiting her with pleasure.

I went for a consultation and everyone in the office was incredible nice and helpful. They were very quick to see me and very patient with all of my questions and concerns. They didn't try to hide any of the negativesof braces from me to try and sway my decision and offered additional options to lower the cost and/or change the comfort level of my mouth during the treatment. When I'm ready to take the plunge, I'll be back!

She was so great!!! She gave me all the options I needed. I've had braces before but My top teeth have shifted over the years and my bottom teeth have stayed perfect due to a permenant retainer. I've been to anotherdentist that told me I would have to get braces on my bottom teeth again even though they're still perfectly straight. Dr. Grinbaum said there would be no need to get bottom braces because they're already straight! Such a relief. She gave me a treatment plan and went over pricing options and payment plans. She's awesome I would recommend her to everyone.

I am 25 years old and just finished roughly a year of incognito braces through Grinbaum Orthodontics. I could not be happier with my new smile. I did not have braces as a kid and had previously tried Invisalign but withlimited success. Dr. Grinbaum and her team are incredibly warm and professional. I felt relaxed knowing I was in good hands. I highly recommend!

Dr. Grinbaum is amazing! And the whole office is great, too. I was 10 mins behind because of train delays and the secretary was incredibly nice about it. I was seen right away and Dr. Grinbaum answered all of my questionsand gave me some great cleaner for my retainers. So rare to find a good doctor after just moving, so I am really happy that I found Dr. Grinbaum on my first try. Highly recommend!

Once I was seen, this was a really quick appointment--Dr. Grinbaum and her assistants were extremely helpful and efficient. If you want to see whether your insurance covers a specific procedure or item, call the office and have them put inthe request a couple weeks beforehand! And weekend days seem pretty hectic for the office overall.

Karin had an easy and clear bedside manner. She listened to my concerns about my retainer and immediately identified the problem. She offered me three reasonable options and helped me weigh the reasoning behind each. The office was clean andbright. The staff were all polite.
