Honest Team & Exceptional Results

"I can't say enough about Dr. Rafaill and the staff at Straight Smiles Orthodontics. They were very straightforward with me regarding pricing and treatment time and clearly explained what my expectations should be.

However, my actual results are better than I could've imagined. I'd highly recommend them to anyone looking to improve their smile!"

Personal Service & Great Results

"The service at Straight Smiles Orthodontics is great! The team is kind and helpful; I've never had a problem with them. I had braces for 24 months, and my teeth were great! When I asked for Invisalign, it was all good and went smoothly. 10/10 recommend this office!"

A Kind & Caring Team

"My child was terrified of dentists, but Dr. Rafaill and his team have done such a spectacular job of making her comfortable that she no longer has anxiety levels when she visits their office. She sees all the other kids when she is there and feels like she's part of the team! She has gained confidence in her appearance, and I am grateful to their team for helping her get a great smile!"
