An Orthodontist Trusted By Our Satisfied Patients

I have had the best experience with Dr. Spokane and his staff. I had lined up a few orthodontists for consultations for my daughter. Unlucky for the others, Dr. Spokane was the first I approached. The consultation process was great and so organized. Between their great financing options, detailed plan they laid out for us, and the overall atmosphere of the office, we were sold and cancelled the other consultations. The office visits for my daughter since she has had her braces on have went so smooth. They are always on time, efficient, friendly, and informative at the end of the appointments if something needs to be communicated to the parent. Dr. Spokane and his staff came highly recommended to us and I can see why.

Dr. Spokane and his staff are absolutely wonderful!

They are always friendly and have made my daughter’s experience with braces an enjoyable one.

They take the time to explain each step and exactly what they will be doing every time she is there.

I will definitely be using them when it’s time for my son to start the process.

"Highly satisfied with my child's ortho procedure. The entire process has been seamless even with the pandemic. The website and patient portal is user friendly, but should you need to call the office for any reason, a staff member always answers in a friendly manner.  The Ambridge office is stunning, it's like waking into a super hero museum.  Everybody's favorite super hero can be found.  Dr. Spokane has a great chair side manner, upbeat and friendly.  My child was nervous at first but his fear quickly went away with the super comfortable atmosphere.  I recommend Dr. Spokane to all my friends and family."
