Dr. Alexis David's Ratings
I just felt like I was getting nowhere. The office said they'd refer me to various specialists and then I'd wait and wait for someone to call me with appointment. No one ever did. I'd call to ask if they had referred me and they'd say that they didn't because they felt it wouldn't be helpful to me. So...thanks for letting me know that the appointment was cancelled before it was ever made. I also didn't feel the answer of surgery and just "leaving things as they are" was right considering all of the problems I'm having. I ended up paying to see my old orthodontist and he is actually helping me fix the problems quickly and without surgery. I do have a rather complicated orthodontic history and a rare range of problems, so I understand why Dr. David might have been scratching his head a bit. It's happened before. So I'm not holding that against him. I was just frustrated by the lack of communication and advice/help.
Having decided to finish ortho treatments after a bad experience as a teen I could not be more happy with my treatment by Dr David and staff! I have been going monthly for a year and a half and both he and his staff are always over and above pleasant and helpful. My daughter also sees him and feels the same. He does a monthly payment plan which is so great and I would happily recommend his office to everyone!
Dr.David expanded my jaw as well as gave me braces. All the encounters I had with him and his staff were good. The ladies that work for him are lovely and very personable. Aside from the fact I actually had to have braces the experience was awesome. Now I have perfect straight teeth :)
We saw Dr David for a second opinion when our orthodontist recommended a palatal expander. We saw that he was listed as a Damon provider and we wanted to know if my daughter was a candidate. The office staff were polite and pleasant to my daughter. Dr David spoke to me as if my daughter wasn't there, which isn't something we're comfortable with. He brushed off our questions about the Damon system and told us that the palatal expansion recommended for our daughter was "nothing" and that he'd seen palates expanded up to 13 mm (wow, that's a lot of expansion of one face, we thought). When I tried to explain that we really were just there for information about the Damon system, he became defensive and abrupt and told us they (the Damon braces) don't always work like they're advertised to. We wondered why he advertises and uses them if he doesn't think they work? The visit was a complete waste of our time. We went back to the other orthodontist.
Outlines our options for straightening teeth in great detail. Very personable and so is the staff. Very accomodating with appointments. The patient feels that this orthodontist really stays current.
