I’ve gone to Appel Orthodontics after my brother did, and I enjoyed Dr. Appel and his staff a lot.  They make it easier to deal with the braces and they are quick and good at what they do.  They make getting an appointment quite easy also. Everyone is friendly and the staff make it seem like your with family.

Dr Andrew and all the women that work there are the best in the business. When we started this process, my daughter had a very rough time. Everyone there stayed way after their shift to ensure Mackenzie got exactly what she needed. Everyday since then, they have kind, caring and amazingly accommodating. I’m sad that I only see them every 3 or 6 months now that my daughter has completed Phase 1. I would recommend every one and anyone to Appel orthodontics. The massage chairs for parents are the bonus of all bonuses in exchange for amazing, quality care of my loved one’s teeth. 🙂

It has been such a wonderful experience being a patient at Appel Orthodontics!  I started invisalign in October 2015 and finished my last tray a few months ago. Super happy with the service/staff and the results!  If you’re looking for excellent patient care, expert orthodontic services, and want to love your smile, go check out Appel Orthodontics!  Thanks Dr. Steve and Andrew!

Members of my family have been going to Appel Orthodontics for nearly 30 years now and we have been extremely satisfied with their service each time. The service is always very quick and whenever there is some type of problem, they make a time for you as soon as possible. They have worked on myself and 4 other family members and we all still have perfect teeth to this day. Could not have possibly asked for a better Orthodontist. I wouldn’t recommend going anywhere else for Orthodontics but Appel. They will leave you feeling satisfied and very happy with a perfect smile.

Appel Orthodontics is by far, the best at what they do. As a teenager, I had braces (performed by Appel Orthodontics) and of course, I decided to never wear my retainer! As an adult, I returned to them to have Invisalign and I couldn’t have been happier! They were extremely professional, thorough in their description of the process, and just overall were really wonderful. Everyone I came in contact with, from the front desk, to the xray techs, the dental assistants, and both generations of Appels! The process was straight forward, and went by without a hitch. I completed my course, and my teeth are looking straighter than ever. I recently had an issue with my permanent retainers, and they were able to fit me in for a visit within a week. I love that even though I am finished with my Invisalign treatments, the orthodontics office is still available if I need anything. Thank you for all that you do!!

I cannot say enough wonderful things about Appel Orthodontics! The doctors are extremely nice and they, along with their wonderful staff, do amazing work. My kids’ teeth look beautiful! Every single staff member in this office is so nice and helpful. The office is really nice, very clean and a very pleasant place to visit. My kids actually enjoy coming here. I highly recommend Appel Orthodontics, they do an awesome job and the prices are affordable too. I would give them more than five stars if I could!

The whole Appel orthodontics team is awesome! They know how to make you smile and make the process as fun as seeing your new smile for the first time! Dr Andrew Appel is well known and well respected by his fellow orthodontists across the country and around the world but it’s the relationships that he and his team have built with their patients that makes Appel Orthodontics really special. You’ve found THE PLACE for orthodontic care for you and your family!

On my 3rd child getting braces at Appel Orthodontics, all I can say is AMAZING! Dr.Appel, Dr. Andrew, Dr. Andi (soon to be Appel) are the BEST orthodontists in the STATE, EVERYONE from the moment you walk in are just great, all the girls at the desk and Erica are so friendly and their place is so comfortable and clean. Parents can enjoy a massage chair, coffee/tea and a magazine while you wait (super bonus) they treat every patient so kind and with the highest level of treatment there is. Both my girls say their smiles are their greatest asset and get compliments daily on their smiles all thanks to this crew. If I could give more than 5 stars I would. Thanks for making everyone feel like family, you all are very appreciated! Mrs. Erica McCarthy

Appel staff is always welcoming, The receptionist greets each patient with a beautiful smile., I also like that they have massage chairs for the parents while we wait for our children to be treated. The refreshments also helps bypass time. The office is a comfortable environment and I am pleased with my son’s outcome this far. I look forward to seeing the finished product.

This office is incredible. The front desk is nothing but accommodating. We have never waited even 5 minutes before they take you back to see the doctor. Entire staff is friendly and warm and answer any question you have. The Doctors are fantastic and so funny. They offer numerous ways to pay and are very affordable. We love Dr Appel and travel 25 miles just to come here. What are you waiting for? Make your appointment now!

All 3 of my children are seen by the team at Appel, and we could not be happier with the care they receive. From the reception staff who are always welcoming, to the time spent with the care coordinator, and all of the orthodontic staff, we always feel like family when we are at Appel. You can tell that everyone at Appel Orthodontics value their patients, offering amentities such as massage chairs in a quiet waiting area, ipads for siblings, a beverage area with hot coffee, tea, hot chocolate and cold water, there is a caring touch in every part of the office. Dr. Appel and Dr. Andrew know their patients and their parents by name, and always take the time to talk to us. My oldest just got his braces taken off, and his teeth look amazing! We highly recommend Appel Orthodontic, and we feel very lucky to have found such a great place for our children to receive such excellent care.

The Doctors and Staff at Appel Orthodontics provide exemplary care! They provide flexible hours for scheduling the many orthodontic visits that you will need under their care.They are also very knowledgeable and responsive to patient needs and concerns. In short, getting your kids into braces can be expensive and time consuming. Therefore, you want to be sure that they are getting the best possible care. With that being said, I would definitely recommend Appel Orthodontics!

Appel orthodontics is the best. They are currently treating one of my daughters at the moment and they have preciously treated my oldest daughter. Getting appointments is never a problem and all of the staff is friendly and courteous. My oldest daughter needs a new retainer due to having a procedure done and her current retainer is now to small and they were able to schedule us an appointment right away. I love this place and I’m sure they will be treating my youngest daughter as well.

The office is always clean, staff are on the ball, appointments are fast and efficient. Dr. Appel always gives a final okay on all care provided. The waiting area has tablets to keep the kids busy while waiting and the parents have a relaxation room with massage chairs!! There is also complimentary coffee available. It is a great orthodontist experience for the whole family and makes life a lot easier with 5 kids! Way to go Appel Orthodontics!!

When I was a young teenager about 12 years ago, Dr. Appel was my orthodontist and my teeth are still straight and beautiful! He was great. One time I had an issue with the wire on a weekend and he was literally willing to meet up with me and my dad just to fix it. He’s an amazing orthodontist and I plan to take my son here soon since he seems to have inherited the crooked teeth from me.

I couldn’t be more pleased with my daughter’s teeth after getting her braces off. They have an excellent staff, friendly and knowledgeable. They don’t keep you waiting, you are seen at the time of your appointment. They also have massage chairs for the parents to use while waiting for your child, which I truly enjoyed. I highly recommend Appel Orthodontics, you will not be disappointed.

Thank you Dr. Andrew Appel!!! This was nothing but a Great experience! I would recommend anyone that has been even thinking about getting invisalign to just give them a call. You will be pleased from the moment you speak to the staff and meet the doctors! They also work with you financially and help to meet all your needs! Appointments were always convenient and also on time!

I am so glad I decided to go to Appel for a consultation! I went there to talk about getting Invisalign, but after reviewing my case, Dr. Andrew thought that I would be able to get the best results with traditional braces instead. I trusted his advice and started my treatment plan in June 2020. Within weeks I already started seeing so much progress. I am now 10 months into my treatment and my teeth are COMPLETELY different! I have been wanting to fix my teeth since I was in middle school, I am now almost 30 and I can finally say that I love my smile, braces and all! Being an adult with braces, I decided to get clear ceramic braces on top and traditional metal on the bottom, no one actually notices that I have braces which is great! Overall, I am so thankful to have Dr. Andrew and the rest of the Appel team help me get the perfect smile I have always wanted. I always look forward to my appointments. If you’re thinking about getting braces, I would HIGHLY recommend Appel Orthodontics.

Switched to Dr. Appel & couldn’t be happier. My daughter loves him & his techs that see her for maintenance. Friendly front desk staff. Always easy appointments. In & out – no overly long wait time or hassle to check in or speak with the front desk. Minus 1 star for location but today noticed a sign that says they’re relocating !???To be continued…

The staff of Appel orthodontics is amazing ! They are professional yet so very kind, gentle and caring . Dr. Andrew Appel followed my treatment from beginning to end and I am beyond thrilled with the results. As an adult, , Invisalign was incredibly easy to maintain and the results just perfect. My teeth look great, my bite has changed and the TMJ headaches are gone! I wish I had done this years ago! Thank you to the Appel Orthodontics team for your amazing care !!



I cannot express enough gratitude for the wonderful work that the Appel team had done to create my new smile. The pleasant staff, the organization of the team, and the comfort brought to every patient made my experience wholesome. I am proud to say that I made the right decision by trusting the Appel Orthodontics to take care of my teeth and will continue to cherish the moments created throughout my journey. Appel team, YOU are the best!!

My son came here for a consultation a little over two years ago. They told us he had to have one more adult tooth fully come in, and to come back in a few months which we did. We went back they put the braces on, and told us two years and they would be off. 1 and 1/2 years later and they were off. Have come back now every do often for routine checks. They are all do great here. Glad we picked Appel. Would definitely recommend to anyone looking to get braces on.

My daughter Adalie has been a patient of Dr. Appel for about a year now. She is receiving exceptional care. We have met both doctors and they have been so kind, patient and not to mention very informative. Must mention the accommodations for parents and children in the waiting area! My daughter is always calm and at ease with the staff here and that tells me she’s in good hands. Affordable and adjustable payment plans!

Amazing office, staff and doctors! Dr. Appel is amazing and really listens to all your concerns and make sure you are comfortable. If you have any issues you can call and come in and that make sure everything is okay and you are happy with your results. Highly recommend!

I love the open space in the treatment room. The office has a very welcoming atmosphere. The staff is nothing less than WONDERFUL. The doctors are professional informative and kind. Any questions I had were answered in a way that I could completely understand. The complementary coffee and parent massage chair room are the cherry on top! I would HIGHLY recommend this office.

Dr. Andrew and staff are personable and happily handle all questions and concerns as they arise. Always greeted with a smile! They are punctual with their appointment times, which is great when running around with other children, planning dinner and sports schedules. Thank you for making this a great experience for the family!

My daughter’s Mackenzie and Abby have been coming here since 7/17 and I couldn’t say a negative thing. Dr. Steve is funny and calls Mackenzie Big Mac and we just think its funny. Dr. Andrew is ALL around a great guy. You should definitely use them. The staff is always friendly. Thank you Appel Staff 😉

At Appel Orthodontics you will only deal with the best of the best. As soon as you enter the door, you will deal with the warm welcome of the staff. The prices are very reasonable, but most importantly the dentists exhibit top tier competency. Feel assured that the dentists and staff at Appel Orthodontics will not just treat you, but they will take care of you. That’s what’s been happening with me for two years now!

Excellent place.. Clean friendly and very funny. My daughter was extremely happy and smiled the most ever when she was told she could get them today.. I was even happy to maybe save my teeth. They referred me to a place so I will be able to come back.. Very satisfied. If there was 10 stars they would get 10…lol

Melissa Hoch (Source: Google)


The girls at the desk are always ready to answer questions or just offer a smile. The Drs are positive, willing to answer any and all they questions you may have. We are kept informed and progressing smoothly. My daughter’s teeth look amazing. The only negatives is that the parking lot is a nightmare and I think they should offer a complimentary whitening treatment after the braces come off. We are paying quite a bit of money and getting quality treatment but it would be a nice touch and not cost the office too much.

Based on reviews & meeting with the doctors for consultation, I knew for me to get the best results, it would be with them & I was 100% right. They’re super attentive & strive to give you the absolute best smile & I am so incredibly thankful! I FINALLY have the smile I’ve ALWAYS wanted. The most amazing doctors & the friendliest staff I’ve ever come across in any office (literally every single person is so nice). Highly recommended.

Staff are very friendly and welcoming here. If you come with kids or waiting for someone there are iPads available to use with games and other cool apps. The place is clean and great parking. They also have office hours are great for all schedules. Another thing i was running behind schedule and they still made time for me. So that’s always a plus! (Crystal Davis)

We love Appel Orthodontics!! 8 of our 9 children were patients of Doctor Appel and more recently, his son, Andrew. My oldest daughter didn’t need braces. They all had great experiences and now they have beautiful smiles. The office is clean and the staff is very friendly. I would highly recommend this practice!
