"My name is Lance Skelson and my daughter Lillian was always wondering when she would be getting braces. Years ago when her adult teeth were growing in, she would always mention her concern about how her front 2 teeth specifically were growing in a bit crooked. I knew it was a matter of time (a little longer than she wished for of course) before we would be able to get her concerns taken care of. As she started getting older, when she turned 12 we finally figured this would be a great time to address her concerns and make her happy and confident with her most important insecurity, her 2 front teeth. When I took her to the dentist and they told her she was ready, she was more than excited. We were recommended here by a local dentist and I am very glad we were, as we have had one of the greatest experiences imaginable for something so important for Lillian. The morning I woke her to let her know it was time she smiled bigger than I have ever seen. We look forward to her getting the confidence and happiness that kids should have with their smile. The staff has been absolutely outstanding and we look forward to coming in to every visit. Thank you very much North Coast Orthodontics.

"My experience with orthodontists has not been favorable until I transitioned both my sons care to North Coast Orthodontics. My oldest son was receiving treatment from another doctor for 5 years and refused to remove his braces for Prom and graduation. Dr. Schabel examined him and agreed to remove the braces. During his examination it was determined that the original doctor's goals would never be reached as a tooth that was removed created a space that could never be closed. My younger son had been seeing the same doctor and we constantly had issues with spacing devices falling out and the team never available at various times of day to accommodate the needed replacement service. With our transition the orthodontic care has been effective,efficient and North Coast Orthodontics uses the most up to date tools, devices and processes for the patients ultimate success. The office team is helpful, kind, knowledgable and efficient. This is the care I have been looking for. I can honestly state that I would highly recommend Dr. Schabel and the North Coast team for orthodontic services"

"Brad is very small for his age. Yet from his very first appointment, when he had to shift up in the dental chair, he completely felt secure. The assistants that have worked with Brad have always been truly welcoming and supportive.
The Dr.'s that have worked with him putting on and taking off the appliances are incredibly skilled and assured Brad that he was a super patient through the whole process. Brad has enjoyed earning his points for one day cashing them in. I have always been very impressed with the entire staff and the open and cheerful environment!"
