What Our Clients Say About Us

  • "Very friendly office! I love everyone there! The best thing is I went there for my braces and even though it's been 13 years, Dr. Schafer and her team remember me and my family and history so they can best treat my daughter without us having to start from the beginning. Love them!"
  • "Dr. Schafer has been so wonderful to our family. She and the whole staff at her office (Hi Katie! :) Are so comfortable and caring, but also take their work seriously. We always know that when we leave the office, we will be smiling (some of us with straighter teeth!). Many of our friends recommended Dr. Schafer, and I would recommend her as well. We interviewed several orthodontists before deciding, and Dr. Schafer was who my son and I felt most comfortable with. We have now brought 3 of our children to her for teeth fixin' and couldn't be more satisfied with her patience, her work ethic, and her prices. She is fair and honest. You will be glad you chose her too!"
    Cassandra Robbers
