The first time I heard about Dr. Gaik, I was apprehensive. There were bad reviews about her, but I'm glad I didn't listen to them. Thanks to her and her staff, my son can now show off his perfect teeth! He is not self-conscious anymore and he has learned to properly take care of his teeth. Her price is very affordable, and that's because unlike other orthodontists she doesn't care about the extra frills (Keurig coffees, cookies, free movies). Also, 6 months after my son's braces have been taken off, and she is still following up on him. I can't thank Dr. Gaik enough!

It is several years later and I am still feeling the effects of having this terrible orthodontist. Like many others hear have stated, I too had to get my braces on again after having them off too early when my teeth weren't even properly straightened. It seems like Dr. Gaik really did not do much to my teeth as they still don't look great for having them on for several years. Not only that but my dentist always comments on why there is still glue left on my teeth... I found Dr. Gaik to be a little unprofessional, constantly gossiping with another employee while poking around in my mouth. I would not recommend this orthodontist at all. Might consider invisalign now...

Based on my experience, I've noticed that the young receptionist is very professional and friendly, while the older receptionist seems ticked off everyday. Otherwise, the rest of the staff are very positive and trusting. Whenever I have any concerns, they make sure to resolve the concern in a positive and reassuring manner. After reading many patient reviews, I am praying that the staff don't mess my teeth up and I am giving 100% of my trust into their hands.

I have been a client with Dr. Gaik for 7 months now and I have had nothing but great service from all staff. Every time I come the young receptionist is so friendly, the older lady always looks mad but she is also very nice when you speak to her. All the techs are knowledgeable and will always stop to answer your questions. Dr.Gaik is always a bright star. She may not spend a lot of time with you during the appointment but she is friendly and is always smiling. She will also always stop to answer my questions/ anxieties about anything.

I found Dr gaik to be good. However her receptionists are awful. After four years with a fixed retainer it popped off on the bottom and was poking into my bottom lip, I called them and asked for an appointment to reseal or get a new one. I referred to it as my "permanent retainer" the receptionist said "okay first of all there is no such thing as a permanent retainer. Nothing in your mouth can last that long. It's a fixed retainer. Secondly, if your braces have been off for four years, you are no longer a patient of ours and there is no need for you to come to Dr. Gaik to have it fixed"

Worst Orthodontist! I had to get my braces put on twice because she misdiagnosed the progress of of teeth. She also forgot to give me my permanent retainer. I called and told her how unhappy I was with my teeth, they were not in alignment and told me she would put my braces back on for a third time for free because of her mistake. A few weeks later I had them put on and she told me I have to pay $500. Never did she mention this to me. The saying is Cheap work isn't good, and good work isn't cheap. You may be out more money after insurance, but not worth this hassle. I am almost 26 and now may have to put out for Invisalign.

I took my 8 year old daughter to see dr.gaik for a consultation because it states she is a children's specialist. My daughter who is very self conscious about her teeth was told her mouth looks like a shark and not to worry we will fix that horrible mess up. I was not impressed and my daughter was in tears. Besides that the receptionist was terribly rude to multiple other people I was glad we didn't have to deal with her. Upon leaving I was told we would get a call with 2 hours as they had to look something up for us and didn't want us to wait at the office...it took 3 weeks!!!! I don't recommend anyone to take there child there if you want a pleasant experience that is already hard enough on them.
