Dr. Roderick and staff are great. They all do a wonderful job and are highly competent which puts me at ease. I trust them and I know I am getting good care. I recently went through the Invisilign experience and I am VERY happy with the results. My teeth have been shifting over the years, causing my bite to change, resulting in my gums receding. It caused a lot of sensitivity issues and I was constantly getting bonding done along the gum line to fight it. It got to the point where I hated going to the dentist because of the discomfort that I experienced during even routine cleaning, not to mention the need for more bonding. Dr. Roderick helped me understand what was happening and recommended the Invisilign treatment to fix my bite, which would in turn stop the recession. IT DID! I am glad I put the waiting to an end because I am so much more comfortable. Now, dental visits are no big deal...no more sensitivity, bonding, pain, or anxiety! The difference is night and day and I am thrilled that I did it. I feel like I added years of good life to my teeth and that is worth every penny. I used the finance option available through Care Credit and paid it off within the interest free time frame. The office helped me sign up for that. I am really glad I invested in my teeth and if you are on the fence about it, jump off and get it done.
As far as the Invisalign experience, it is mostly good. I liked that I could take it out when I wanted to. But you really need to be good about wearing it, otherwise you will waste your time and money. They are clear so be careful not to accidentally throw them away. (It helps to use the case they give you and bring it with you, like when you eat out, so you have somewhere to put them besides a napkin, that gets tossed!) I didn't like the little buttons that had to be placed on some teeth so that the trays would grab on but they were necessary, and a lot less annoying than braces I am sure. I got used to them. Also, my teeth were pretty tight so he had to file the spaces in between some teeth on multiple occasions, which was really weird, but again, necessary for the best outcome. This did not cause any damage of course. It took a little over 6 months and I wear a retainer at night when I go to bed to maintain the results. It acts as a bit of a night guard too. It doesn't bother me one bit. I actually kind of like it.
He also helped my husband with an anti-snore mouthpiece. Prior to this, we were actually considering a CPAP because I noticed he would stop breathing at night and his snoring was bad, unless he slept a certain way, which was causing chronic shoulder pain....that he also had physical therapy for! The problem was snowballing! Instead of a CPAP machine, we asked Dr. Roderick some questions about the mouthpiece and opted for that. Now he can sleep in multiple, comfortable positions. It positioned his jaw so that he could breath AND his shoulder is fine! So glad we didn't go down the CPAP route, which would have been more expensive, cumbersome, and totally unnecessary at this time in our lives.
Hope this helps somebody!

Dr Roderick is the follow through dentist! Always making sure your comfortable and explains very well what he is doing so you understand. Staff is top notch as well. What makes his office a 5 star experience is their willingness to cooperate and help you and your family with all your needs anyway possible. He even calls you after hours to check in on you after a procedure is done that day. The front office staff and hygienist and assistants that help are one of a kind and very nice and approachable. My family appreciates you all very much! Thank you!
This dental office is far above any I have ever been to. The entire staff is professional and welcoming.
Dr. Roderick is up to date on the latest technology and free with information.
On my first visit, I received a complete exam and consultation with Dr. Roderick and went away feeling informed and confident that all my concerns could be addressed.
I wanted to update my post to show how happy I am after my second visit. I received a follow up call the same night from Dr. Roderick to see how I was after my procedure that day. As always, the staff was very courteous and patient in explaining procedures and I went away with no stress. I can't believe the contrast in this dental office and all others I have been to.
