Welcoming smiles, caring/educational consultations and 3 othrodontists who all know my profile is just the beginning. Trust me when I say this office is one of the best and you will be extremely satisfied”
“Burrow Orthodontics offers professional and friendly service. They are very knowlegeable and keep their patients informed about the process and procedures before they begin. My teenage son feels very comfortable during his appointments.”

“I have two more appointments until I get my braces off and I can say that the journey was worth it! Back when I started I found out that my brushing was not the best it could’ve been. The hygienist took the time to talk to me and actually show me how to brush my teeth. I found that they were really helpful and empathetic and I thank them for the smile they’ve given me. They have a loving staff who love what they do and I believe that it was a privilege to have them fix my teeth. From the bottom of my heart… THANK YOU!!!”
“Honestly the first time I went i was scared, like completely mortified because all my friends made braces sound like the scariest thing in the world but when I got there everyone was nice and kind. The lady that was doing my braces at the time noticed that I was a little frightened and so she started talking to me. We talked about dance, school, and our weekends. I started enjoying going i loved talking to the people because they are so kind. I would recommend Burrow Orthodontics to anyone because they are absolutely great. They also do many wonderful contest where you can win things like gifts cards or passes to Carowinds.”
