When my daughter, Lauren’s, permanent teeth came in, it was obvious she would need orthodontic work. Lauren was self conscious about her teeth and always placed her hand in front of her mouth when she laughed or smiled. We were lucky to have found Dr. Matthew Stacy.
Dr. Stacy outlined her treatment plan, explained in as much detail as we needed what would happen, and how the orthodontic work would proceed. He gave a realistic time-line of the duration of his work and fulfilled or exceeded his promises and our expectations.
Dr. Stacy’s staff is friendly, accommodating, and helpful. Since Lauren began treatment there has been little or no change in staff. Scheduling is easy and they always call a day or two ahead to remind patients of their appointments; this avoids the, “Oh no!” moments when you realize your appointment was yesterday! His office runs very close to schedule and unless he confronts an unexpected problem with another patient, he is prompt in seeing patients on time. The office runs very smoothly and professionally.
In addition to needing orthodontic work, Lauren had two teeth that were smaller than normal and would have detracted from her smile. During the course of Dr. Stacy’s work of straightening her teeth, he referred us to a cosmetic dentist who coordinated with Dr. Stacy in perfecting Lauren’s smile. Lauren’s braces were removed one week and early the next week the other dentist bonded her teeth. I was impressed with the communication and cooperation between the two dentists. I’ve become very observant in the last couple years and noticed that some orthodontic work is ‘passable’ while other work reaches perfection. The differences are usually very subtle–almost imperceptible–but still noticeable. Dr. Stacy has a gift for seeing what each individual’s smile should look like and making that a reality. His work is the difference between a ‘nice’ smile and an amazing, beautiful, yet natural smile. At their final appointment, patients sign his wall; every one of them walks out with an amazing, beautiful and natural smile.
My daughter now smiles broadly, no longer with her hand in front of her mouth. She loves to laugh and now does so without embarrassment. Dr. Stacy provided more than just straight teeth–he gave her a tremendous boost in confidence. We’re delighted with the results.
