I love this practice. The atmosphere is amazing and the orthodontist is brilliant. My oldest daughter had her braces at a different practice and I wish I knew about three leaf back then. Three leaf provides excellent care. It’s super clean. Absolutely the best. Their teeth look so good. The Invisalign on my youngest is turning out wonderfully. The braces on my middle child turned out flawless. We liked it so much my husband is now having his teeth fixed. Truly excellent.
