We used Dr. Mappes for my son and are currently using him for our daughter. The staff is very friendly and Dr. Mappes is always up on the latest techniques. The thing I like most about the practice is that the patient ends up with a wonderful smile but still maintains THEIR unique smile. I have found with other orthopedics that almost all the patients smile look the same. I like that Dr. Mappes works to preserve the smile in each patient.
Initially I was somewhat hesitant about getting braces, being that I'm in my mid-twenties, but I can honestly say that Dr. Ruth and her staff are absolutely amazing. Every visit Dr. Ruth asks how my day is going and really takes the time to establish a genuine doctor-patient relationship. I have had braces for a little over eight months and already my teeth are beautiful. I can't wait to see the finished product!!!
Dr. Ruth is great! Both of our children have been patients of hers - one for 4 years and one for 2 years. The smile results are wonderful, but so is the relationship Dr. Ruth builds with your family. The office atmosphere is friendly and fun with a lot of rewards and contests. The office location is so convenient. Highly recommend.
