My family has been going to Dr. Appel for 6 years now. My third child is getting his braces put on next week. The office staff is friendly and accommodating, office environment is clean and comfortable. Dr. Appel has provided outstanding service at all times, is very "hands-on" and makes you feel like he knows you personally. Thankfully Dr. Appel's office accepts our insurance as I would not want to take my kids anywhere else. A+++++++++!

My experience at DR. Appel's office was great! I went to Dr. Appel's office for about 2 years and I am very satisfied with my new smile. The staff there is very nice and friendly! I've actually never been to a place that is as friendly as they are. Whenever I had to reschdule my appointment, it was never a problem, and they always answered my questions about my treatment. In addition, I was suprised to see how well Dr. Appel knows his clients. It was nice to see that he went around talking to all his clients cause I've never seen any doctor do that. I couldn't be more happier with my experience at DR. Appel's office!

My son had braces done by Dr.Appel at the age of 12yrs his overbite was so bad he had to have them on for 4yrs. It was well worth it. My son is so handsome with a beautiful smile. He gets many compliments about his teeth. People can't over how nice and straight his teeth are. Dr.Appel thank for giving Sean a BEAUTIFUL SMILE!

Since my sister and I both needed braces my mom was looking for a good place but one that offered excellence with a good price. Hard to find nowadays but we did!! DR. APPEL'S office was AMAZING! I still have my braces on and go to my checkup regularly. The staff is great. Whenever I had an emergency and called Dr. Appel he had one of his aids come into the office and fix my braces. They take you in in under 10 minutes and are really friendly and nice. i dont know what these people who are writing the bad reviews are saying. DR. APPEL IS GREAT!

I am ABSOLUTELY amazed with the difference in my daughter's teeth after less than a year. Originally I was concerned with price, but figured he came so highly recommended that he must be worth the price, and I'm glad that I did! I can't wait to see the finished product.

Dr. Appel and his staff are excellent! The staff is very friendly and welcoming. Always cheery and willing to answer any questions. I lived at school (Temple University), but the office was always willing to work with my schedule. I highly recommend Dr. Appel. My sister, brother, and I have such beautiful smiles because of him! Painless, quick, and efficient process.

Dental work, Asperger's syndrome and anxiety those three phrases do not go together! They are, however, my reality. Well actually, they are my son's reality. He needed braces as do most children on the autism spectrum. I could not imagine how anyone could get braces on my son who has such sensory issues when he doesn't like his hair brushed? Well we went to one orthodontist for a consultation and she suggested a pallet expander. Which he did need but?how can he have a foreign object in the top of his mouth when he can't stand the feeling of brushing his teeth? She just didn't understand his issues and said come back in 6 months when he is a little more mature and we'll talk again. HELLO!!! He has been like this since day one, I don't think he is going to get ??better? in 6 months? So I went home and I researched online, different types of braces and orthodontist if I had to drive 3 hours to find someone who understood my son? trust me I would. I found the wonderful office of Dr. Appel. He is a fabulous orthodontist whose wife is an occupational therapist and he has experience with children on the autism spectrum. So Dr. Appel really ??gets it.? When we went in for the consult my son thought he was going to be sick or pass out he was very stressed. When we arrived at the office I was impressed with how CLEAN it was( I am a germ nut) My son was quickly distracted by the flat screen TV and video games. Dr. Appel took us back to his office and in minutes he understood our concerns. He talk to my son like a therapist so calming and reassuring showed him the models of teeth explained everything to him how things will proceed that we could do the top half one week and the bottom another this way it wouldn't be too much on my son. Dr. Appel decided that he would get the Damon system braces which do not have the painful metal bands around the back teeth. The Damon system is really great you need less adjustments and have them on a shorter amount of time. The big day arrived we got to the office the staff is so kind and very understanding. They took him right back to get his x-rays which I forgot to mention in all his 12 years of going to the dentist no one was able to get an x-ray of his teeth. The tech who did the x-rays worked at Spin (Special People in the NE) so I knew right away he would be fine. He let the tech take x-rays which involved foreign objects in his mouth. He did great I was very impressed. So the goal was to get the top on. Jodi was one of the women who worked the front desk and she checked on him and told me he was crying a little but not freaking out. Jodi was super kind and kept checking on him and she gave me updates? after a few minutes he was doing well and they were getting the braces on? I was SHOCKED! Dr. Murray was the orthodontist who was applying the top braces. I was so surprised they really kept him calm. I was waiting and I thought wow it is taking a little long for just the tops and Jodi checked on him again and said they have the bottoms almost done. I could not believe in that time they got the tops and the bottoms on him!!! I was sooooo impressed. My son came out very proud that he did it. I was totally amazed I went home and called our friends and family no one could believe he sat for the tops and bottoms in one visit. I cannot say enough wonderful things about Dr. Appel's office and his amazing staff. They went way above and beyond! I really thank them for making this so easy.

I would definitely recommend Dr. Appel to all of my friends and family. He and his staff were very friendly, helpfuI, and courteous. For having such a busy practice, I never had to wait long, and felt like I was well taken care of. I absolutely love my smile.

there is no privacy in the treatment area. everyone sits among one another. the women that work there were more interested in talking to each other instead of paying attention to my needs. Dr. appel walks around telling jokes.he doesn't seem like he is interested in patient treatment.

I have been wearing retainers 24/7. I just recently went to bed time only. Well, my great smile had a debut this weekend when at a wedding I was complimented on how great my smile was.
Thank you Doctor Steve and all your great staff. I was so proud. Anyone who is thinking of braces has to go see the staff at Dr. appel's. You will not be sorry. I promise!

Both of my children needed braces and, after researching and visiting various orthodontists in Philadelphia and Lower Bucks Counties, I chose Dr. Appel. I have never regretted that decision. I found Dr. Appel and his staff to be very professional, cordial and accommodating. My children found them to be friendly and caring. People constantly comment on my children??s beautiful teeth and I don??t hesitate to attribute their wonderful smiles to Dr. Appel and his competent staff. I would highly recommend Dr. Appel.

AMAZING PLACE! I take my grandson to Dr. Appel and we both enjoy going. His office is nicely decorated with flat screen TV's and video games for the kids ( I can't get him to leave!). His staff is always pleasant and accomodating. He hasn't had to miss any time from school like many kids who get braces. Dr.Appel answers any questions I may have and he even came to the office on a Saturday night to take care of a minor emergency. His teeth look great! You will certainly enjoy having your braces here!

The whole staff is truly very unfriendly. They don't look at you when they talk to you. They don't smile at you. Very cattle-call like and unprofessional. Go to a practice where you are treated with decency and respect especially with the amount of money you're shelling out.

My daughter was told she needed braces and we visited several offices for consultations. One of those was Dr. Appel's office. The staff there are VERY friendly and my very nervous daughter was put quickly at ease.Although the office is always busy the wait time is always VERY short. I still can't figure out how they do that.As for the financial aspect, they are very accommodating. Payments are broken down with no interest charged and out of the 5 offices we went to they were the most reasonable.My daughter and I are both very happy with the service we received and I feel we definitely made the right choice for her care.

PROS: friendly atmosphere, short wait times
CONS:
