Reviews :)

January 13th, 2016

We love reading reviews that our patients write for us. Each and every one brings smiles to our faces! Here are examples of some we have received recently:

“If your child needs braces, this is the place to go. Always professional and friendly and always on time.” – B.L. 1/2016

“Dr. Hussaini and his staff are awesome! He is great with kids and his prices we have found are better than others!” – A.S. 11/2015

“We love this office. When we found out that we would be putting braces on a second child, I took the time to do multiple consults. We actually chose SmileWorks over the orthodontist we used for my other child, and I’m so glad we did. Dr. Hussaini and his staff are great. Appointment are always on time; we never sit around just waiting to be seen.” – A.A. 7/2015

“Our first daughter got her braces here and we were very happy with the results. The office is very new and clean. Dr. H is awesome and his staffs are very professional and friendly. We will definitely come back for our second daughter. We would recommend Smilesworks for everyone. Thanks Dr. H for sponsoring our Stonewall Swim Team in the divisional meet.” – U.V. 8/2015

“Great location. Great office. Very friendly and knowledgeable staff. My son feels very comfortable and at ease going through his orthodontic treatment. Highly recommend them if you are seeking an orthodontist.” C.B. 5/2015

“Dr. Hussaini and his staff ROCK! Dr. Hussaini told us when my son got his braces on 11/2013 that he would only probably be wearing his braces a year and half. He was right now. He’s getting them off 4/2015. Everyone is great there. We’ll be back this summer for child #2……..” – P.L. 3/2015

We love all of our patients and are always glad to know the feeling is mutual. We would love to hear what you have to say as well! If you would like to leave us a review, please do so on Google (through our website), on Facebook, or on Yelp!

December Means Insurance Changes!

December 2nd, 2015

As the end of the year approaches fast, we wanted to take this opportunity to remind our patients of a few things:

* If you are looking into changing your insurance (for many patients it’s open enrollment month!) please contact our office to confirm that we can work with the new insurance and how it will affect your account.  If you’re going to make a change, let’s make sure it works to your benefit!

* If you have ANY questions regarding insurances, please feel free to call the office…we are here to help!

* Please check with your Flex Spending and Health Savings Accounts to make sure that they are in order for next year, or to see if you have any benefits left for this year that you’d like to put towards your account before your benefits expire.

We hope every one has a wonderful month! If you have any questions regarding insurances, Flex Spending Accounts, Health Savings Accounts, or any questions in general, please don’t hesitate to call us. We hope everybody has a safe and enjoyable Holiday season!!
