After 3 consults with local, all highly recommended orthodontists, we chose Dr. Battle. We were told by the first 2 Orthodontists that our 11 yr old needed several teeth pulled and/or extracted with oral surgery and then appliances and braces. Dr. Battle felt very confident that these teeth would eventually come out naturally on their own and an appliance, braces, and time would be the only things needed. We are so pleased that things have happened exactly like Dr. Battle explained. All those teeth have come out, the appliance and braces have done their job of creating and holding space. We are just amazed at the results and are so happy we went for a 3rd opinion and found Dr. Battle. Our daughter was not put through any unnecessary treatment. Another note, this office is very clean and friendly. The other 2 we visited, the waiting rooms were just full and very busy. We have never had to wait more than 3-5 minutes for any appt. that is almost unheard of. It has been wonderful!.
