"We have been very happy with Muench Orthodontics from the very beginning. Both the doctor and the staff are very friendly. They always take the time to answer any questions and are beyond thorough. My son always leaves the office feeling good about himself and the progress that is being made. Their encouragement and positive attitudes with what could easily be a frustrating experience is much appreciated. I will continue to recommend them to anyone I can."

"You are always great with my daughter Andin and then Lucas came along with her not even having an appointment and you were able to work him in for xrays and get him ready for treatment as well. Much appreciated!"
-Nicki C.
"My daughter Emma is wrapping up her braces work with Dr. Muench and his staff; she is now in retainers for wear at night. It was been a fantastic experience from from the very first consultant visit! Dr. Muench is hands-on every step pf the way and his staff are complete professionals. The front desk has always tried to accommodate our schedules. Emma's visits were always on time (if you get there on time, they take you on time) and she walked out each time content (even after adjustments, lol). Looking forward to bringing her sister in to the office in a few months, Thanks Dr. Muench!"
