"My daughter just got her braces off and she looks great. Dr. Horton might have rushed to do her bottom teeth but, instead, he opted to see if they would shift naturally once the top teeth were straightened. I appreciate this conservative approach. The office is always gracious and we are in and out with great efficiency and professionalism. Terrie has been super about rescheduling appointments that I missed and is always understanding. She is also extremely knowledgeable regarding insurance and goes out of her way to help. It is a pleasure working with this office."

"This was our first visit. Dr. Horton was on time and welcomed us warmly. He told us that my son did not need to start a treatment yet and took the time to explain his reasons. I really appreciated that he preferred to wait and start at the right moment.
A very nice visit !"

"My son never complains about the way he is treated by Dr. Horton or any of his staff. As a matter of fact, he always says that he was treated well. To start off--Terrie is definitely one of the best front office staff we have ever encountered at any medical/dental office. Mary is also very good. And, Dr. Horton treats him respectfully. This is a great office."

"I got the time of the appointment wrong and arrived 20 minutes late, but the receptionist was very nice to me and they were still able to fit me in. Then, when we went over the expenses and the payment plan, I found out that I hadn't given them our new insurance information. Again, the receptionist was very patient and kind and said she'd write up a new plan after she called the new insurance company. I really appreciated that!"

"We have been so happy with our experience at Horton Orthodontics. Our family had some scheduling difficulties this summer and working with staff to reschedule couldn't have been easier. They have been patient and understanding anytime we had to make an adjustment to the calendar. That is very much appreciated. Professionalism and excellent customer service along with patient care are great qualities in a practice. Thank you!"

"Before coming here I didn't have two teeth going the same direction. But now that my braces are off my teeth look great and the experience was even better than the results."
"My son had a piece of hardware break off and the office was able to get him in right away for the repair. Thanks so much."

"I got my first wire change of my braces today. Since I got my braces in the summer. It was quick and easy! I sat right down and then I was done. My teeth were sore when I ate for two days which was exactly what Dr. Horton told me would happen that was expected. But I got used to it."

"My children have been patients at Dr. Horton's office over the last 15 years. The last child will be starting his braces in a couple of months. Each child has had unique orthodontic needs. We have always been very happy with their treatment plan. The office manager and all the assistants and, of course, Dr. Horton are very friendly, personable, and helpful. We even had one orthodontic emergency, which was handled quickly and thoroughly. We highly recommend Dr. Horton and his staff."

"As an adult, getting braces was not an easy decision. I did not know what to expect and was uncertain if it was worth the time and money. Having gone through the process, I can honestly say it was worth it!!! Dr. Horton and his staff were patience with me. They answered my questions, made me feel comfortable through the entire process, the appointment times were convenient and flexible to accommodate my demanding work schedule, and my teeth look great. My overbite was corrected and my profile changed for the better! Thank you Dr. Horton and your awesome team."
Kim L. Review Verified on 7/31/2014
"In the summer leading to my final year of college, I decided it was time to get my teeth fixed before I moved on to graduate school. The braces worked within that one year and almost no one at my college noticed that I was wearing them: no speech impediment, barely noticeable, and the brace adjustment appointments fit my college schedule. Thank you Dr. Horton for doing a great job."

"Both my girls love Dr. Horton and his staff. He is gentle, funny and takes time to explain to the kids exactly what to do and what results to expect from following or not following his instructions. One of my daughters has a speech and language disability; Dr. Horton and his staff are extremely patient and very good with her. I personally appreciate that the appointment times are respected where I have rarely waited more than five minutes. I just love the people and the service!!"

"Dr Horton and his staff are the best. I have two daughters and they both love going to the orthodontist. My youngest has severe anxiety disorder and I was not sure how she would do during her first few visits. The team at Dr Horton's made her feel comfortable and relaxed. I have never felt so positively about a doctor and his staff."
Pamela O. Review Verified on 7/16/2014
"Great experience so far. Dr Horton takes a conservative approach and waits until the patient's circumstances indicate he/she is ready for braces. He has been following my son for well over a year, seeing him every few months, and waiting until certain teeth fall out before moving ahead. I appreciate that he doesn't want my son in braces for years and years."

"I love this practice. I think my kids are in the best hands. Starting with Terri who is so patient and professional, including the women who assist Dr. Horton, and Dr. Horton himself--this is the best place to bring your children."

"Dr. Horton and his staff are wonderful, wonderful, wonderful. I was a practicing physician so I can appreciate how well the office is run and how caring and capable Dr. Horton is. He took care of my son's braces and then mine. He was able to handle kids and adults with the same jovial equanimity. He and his staff were always happy to see us and always kind. And my son and I, we both have beautiful smiles."
