"I love north coast. I walk in and everyone greets me by my name. I am always well informed of what is going on. The plan is pricy but very very worth it! I recommend people to north coast all the time. I've had two friends come here after me and they both had great experiences as well"

"The office staff is so wonderful. Every time we walk in they greet us so warm and personally. They always take time to answer questions, never seem rushed or anxious even when they are multitasking checking patients in or answering calls. Dr.Schabel has been incredibly patient as we have lost multiple retainers! We have seen progress on Charlie's bite and are confident that the results will be terrific. Thank you ladies in the front for making our time spent here at the orthodontist so flawless. You are terrific!"

"I love the doctors and the staff. Everyone is so nice and professional, it is very easy to obtain an appointment , especially for unexpected things such as a pokey wire that need to be clipped. Thank you so much!"
"I was very apprehensive when I first came in because my experience with orthodontic care in the past has been a nightmare, but my entire experience, from start to finish, has been incredible. I never knew that I was going to look forward to coming in for each appointment. From the beginning all of my orthodontic options were clearly stated to me and it was clear that Dr. Schabel and his team truly cared about what I wanted. The entire process was seamless and easy, and surprisingly pain-free, something that had never been the case with my orthodontic treatment in the past. I sincerely want to thank everyone at North Coast Orthodontics for everything they have done, and for helping me so that I feel confident with smiling and letting my teeth show now. Thank you for everything!"

The following events are all true and just may change your smile forever, interested? Ever since I got braces, which I got here, the staff have treated me very nicely and have given me great care. Eight months ago I got my braces off ending my two year contract with them, but even though I was done with my braces career. They pulled me out of retirement and I was drafted for the retainer line of business with them. I know that I can say North Coast and all the amazing staff did an awesome job and continue to, I also know that when I speak for my teeth I can say that North Coast is the place to go. So get up right now, and sign up at North Coast where dreams come true. Wait, no that's Disneyland. Sign up at North Coast where there are better smiles, and more smiles means happier people, if I were you I'd be signing up right now, but I mean signing up in a minute or two is cool too. Just make sure you sign up alright? Now it's time for me to go now, ( duty calls ) but have a nice day and enjoy your North Coast smile."

"Had braces when I was a child, and my teeth were very straight. But I used a mouth guard to correct for sleep apnea. This was ordered on the internet and was huge mistake. I have a tendency to clench and my bite slipped. My molars were crooked and my bite was very off. North coast was spectacular in making the braces experience for an older patient for me as comfortable, pleasant, and as least invasive as possible."

"Braces as a process is long and by no means easy. Hygiene, upkeep, maintenance. You have to be gentle with your braces and that itself wasn't easy. It took me almost a year and a half to know how to go easy on my braces. Also I have to give a thumbs up, plus, "go team" to the NCO crew for helping me along the way. It was tough but rewarding."

"It hasn't been long since we started my daughter's orthodontic care with North Coast but so far it's been a pleasant experience. The team at NCO have all been really accommodating to our needs, always happy to answer questions and the atmosphere is filled with a lot of natural light, and is modern and clean. The attitudes of the staff are equally bright. So far we are very happy with our choice to go with North Coast Orthodontist for our families orthodontic needs!"

"My daughter just got her braces off! It's the result of top notch orthodontic care!! The entire North Coast Orthodontic Team is phenomenal! My daughter started with an expander which prevented her from having any teeth pulled and the end result is a straight teeth--fabulous SMILE! Thank you for EVERYTHING!"

"It was a big decision to have braces put on while being almost 50 years old. Doctors Schabel and Chan are the best at what they do, as well as the entire staff at North Coast Orthodontics. They are professional, well informed, but most importantly, very appreciative of the ongoing relationship. From inception they were forthright, and supportive throughout the entire process. If considering braces for yourself or someone else, North Coast is simply the best!"
