“My professional life as an orthodontist has given me an opportunity to meet many people and to influence their lives. My patients are amazing, and I respect every one of them whether they are children or adults. Many have to overcome challenges with the appearance of their smile as well as other life challenges. I am inspired by their positivity and bravery throughout their treatment with me. I continue to learn and grow from each and every patient I treat, and it is my honor to be their orthodontist. I am grateful they choose me to go on this journey with them.” – Dr. Daniel Very

"I would recommend Dr. Very to everyone! Very polite staff, very thorough, clean office, and prompt office visits. I also would like to add, I made the mistake of bringing my daughter to a different orthodontist, my experience was awful. I couldn’t bring my son to that orthodontist! My daughter's orthodontist ended up closing his doors without warning! Thank you, Dr.Very for taking my daughter on as a patient and making sure she got the proper treatment."
