"You guys are just the best! I got myself into a pickle about an appliance and didn't even know what to ask for. Your staff and I faxed drawings back and forth until we came up with exactly what I wanted. And, oh my gosh, our patients absolutely love what you can do with designs in retainers - they can print out a design on their computer and you find a way to make it appear in their retainer. If we need something rushed you are accommodating - super accurate and dependable!"

- MaryJo from the office of Dr. Robert Ross (Florence, KY)
