"North Coast Orthodontics treated both of my kids. Aside from their beautiful office and punctual service I completely trust their advice for treatment. My son is now in phase 2 of his orthodontics, and his teeth are coming in beautifully. My son likes the way they treat him "like family"."

"I've been very happy with this process (braces) every step of the way. Dr. Schabel has been very open and informative and has always encouraged and answered all of my questions thoroughly. All of the staff has been very friendly, encouraging, and knowledgable during all procedures - as well as professional. I've been comfortable every visit and have always enjoyed my appointments. I would not hesitate to recommend Dr. Schabel and his team to anyone considering orthodontic procedures. I'll have to figure out an excuse to visit once in awhile. Thank you! By the way me teeth look and feel great!"

"Amy's teeth were a mess when we first began, and although it was a challenge continuing with orthodontic care after a 200 mile move south, it has been worth it. Her teeth look much better so far, but we know she may need more work later. Amy felt comfortable with the great personal care and treatment she was given, which really eased our concerns. North Coast did a nice job and we would recommend you to others."

"Brian, you have made my experience great so far. Having braces at 26 was a challenge I was ready for. From your friendly receptionists to all your kind and knowledgable assistants, I cannot think of a single complaint. Only recommendation would be...at my next appointment on June 2nd at 2:30 have Metallica playing instead of jack johnson. Not that there's anything wrong with jack..."

"We looked into working with several other competitors before coming here. From minute one all the way to getting braces off, we were more then satisfied with the service of North Coast!
Each staff member treated us like family. The husband and wife team were professional and informative throughout the entire experience. Now that the braces are off, and we are out the door, we will miss the cool office environment which has everything a parent and patient could desire. Thanks for everything! Good job team! You turned a trying time more then manageable!"

"I had an extremely positive experience from first phone call to end of first appointment. I was so grateful that all the staff was exceptionally professional as well as kind and friendly. Dr. Schabel was extremely thorough during my exam as well as his initial diagnosis of my complicated oral needs. He spent plenty of time explaining his thoughts and opinions about my oral needs as well answering my questions and valuing my concerns. I look forward to have my orthodontics done at this office!"

"I first came to North Coast Orthodontist to get the adhesive "buttons" removed from my Invisalign treatment that I had started in Albuquerque, NM. Dr. Chan and staff were always very helpful and informative, putting me at ease. After the adhesive was removed, I later noticed one tooth felt rough along the surface. The quote from my dentist to smooth this was quite high, and North Coast Orthodontists told me they would remove it at no cost.
Not only was an appointment scheduled for me for immediately after I called, I mistakenly recorded the appointment time as 20 minutes earlier than it actually was. Nonetheless, I was seen in less than 5 minutes. Prior to the visit, I noticed that there was adhesive residue on several other teeth. Dr. Schabel was super kind enough to buff down several additional teeth that just had wear irregularities which I thought was adhesive. All this at no additional cost incurred to me!! This kind of service just doesn't seem to exist nowadays.
Even though my Invisalign treatment didn't occur at this office, I have always recommended North Coast Orthodontist to anyone who talks about straightening. With this fabulous customer service I can do so even more enthusiastically. Many, many thanks and kudos to the whole staff for a job very well done!"
