I have had a wonderful experience with Dr. Patra. The staff was incredibly friendly. I had a very easy transition into braces, and they were incredibly informative if I had any questions. It was very easy to book an appointment to replace a wire if it broke. I enjoyed coming in and I enjoyed the staff tremendously. I would definitely recommend coming here if you are thinking of getting braces.
