Marie H. from Los Altos, CA (Source: Yelp)


I was long time thinking about a great orthodontic solution, however, I didn’t know it exists without pain involved until I found Dr. Boschken and his amazing team. They have a great high-tech solution in place to minimize pain to zero and still have the same efficiency. Isn’t that just great? And all this with amazing customer service. Call Nicole and ask her about what did Marie Horvath mean about pain-free orthodontic treatment in 2020.

I have had amazing Invisalign results with Dr. Boschken. I had issues with my bite for years, which caused difficulty eating and caused a slight lisp when talking. Dr. Boschken was determined to get my bite corrected and continued treatment for as long as it took to get it fixed. I no longer have issues eating and I am no longer self-conscious about my speech. His staff is also amazing. Everyone is so nice and caring. Before going to Dr. Boschken, I considered some at-home aligners and I am so glad I didn’t go that direction. I could never have gotten the results I have without Dr. Boschken’s expertise. If you are considering Invisalign or braces, I highly recommend this practice.

I have two kids under Dr. Boschken’s care. He was very careful to explain the options and pro’s and con’s before prescribing a course of action. Every other orthodontist we visited wanted to immediately extract teeth before orthodontic treatment!! Dr. B stresses keeping teeth and only extracting teeth if absolutely necessary. The office staff are very friendly and professional. All the orthodontic assistants are very personable and capable as well. In the two years we’ve been with Dr. B, there has been zero turnover in his assistant staff which say’s all you need to know about the quality of care you’ll receive here. P.S. Contrary to an out-dated review, this office serves a diverse clientele spanning virtually every ethnic and racial group you’ll commonly find in the Bay Area. They treat everyone with the same friendly, courtesy and kindness, regardless of race, creed, color or economic status.

In the Summer of 2011, I decided to see an orthodontist because my bottom teeth were protruding so far forward that I couldn’t close my teeth all the way. I set up an appointment with Dr. Boschken, and he discussed some ideas he had about the kind of braces I would need. I went with Boschken Orthodontics because of the warm and friendly staff, as well as the nice, casual, modernly designed, and spacious office with a welcoming atmosphere (and a cool fish tank!). I am in a wheelchair, so having lots of space to navigate is a must. This is one of the best decisions we ever made. Customer service is outstanding, very professional. The wait time is minimal; most of the time, they call me in right when I arrive! I always look forward to visits, and I’ve even made a few friends! Dr. Boschken takes the time to get to know me and is one of the most social and friendly doctors I have ever met. I highly recommend Boschken Orthodontics, with or without a clunky, bulky wheelchair!

Boschken Orthodontics has been absolutely wonderful! The staff is so friendly and has really made an effort to get to know me. I am not just a patient there! Everything is explained and I know what to expect at every step. The technology is top notch. It is so cool being able to see how my teeth will be changing every step of the way with my Invisalign program. I cannot recommend Dr. Boschken enough.

Up F. from San Jose, CA (Source: Yelp)


I had full orthodontics as a teenager but suffered a sports accident as an adult. I had multiple facial fractures and completely messed up my bite and alignment. Several years after reconstructive surgery I investigated orthodontics and was told several times the Invisalign was not an option. I found Dr. Boschken at a health fair in San Jose and he assured me that he could address my issues. The initial prognosis was 14 months or more if I was diligent about the program. Well, after only 11 months, my teeth are in perfect alignment and my bite is completely corrected. The office staff was always friendly and helpful. My appointments were always quick but effective and informative. The Dr. was always professional and personable. I would recommend Dr. Boschken to anyone, young or old, regardless of what you’ve been told about old fashioned braces versus Invisalign. You will love the results!

Tiffani H. from Santa Clara, CA (Source: Yelp)


I am so glad we went to Dr. Boschken! My child’s pediatric dentist told me that in order for my daughter’s teeth to come in that some would need to be pulled. I had heard more and more that pulling teeth was a thing of the past when it comes to straightening and I’m glad I listened to my inner voice. The ped. dentist even told me to wait a couple of years before seeing an ortho (daughter was 8 at the time)! People please get a second opinion by someone in the specific field before following any expert/doctor advice. Dr. Boschken’s office is beautiful! Both adult and child friendly. Their standard practices are very modern and exceed any expectation I had going in. Consultations are complimentary and they give you a fully work up of what’s going on and what your options are, without any pressure. They also offer great payment plans, and the account coordinator is very friendly and informative. P.S. Keep in mind he’s a doctor, not your best buddy, you’re paying for the work and he does it beautifully! Additionally, the staff is very welcoming and accommodating to last minute schedule changes that often occur with my hectic schedule. They give you one-on-one attention and really get to know and care about their patients. My daughter has completed phase one (making space for the teeth) and for that alone I will say that Dr. Boschken is a magician. He makes it look so easy, when others I’ve seen have broken a sweat trying to figure out an approach. His knowledge and skills are just amazing. Not only that, but he can do it in about 1/3 the time that others I’ve known had to wear braces. I tell all of the parents I know to take their kids to get a consultation, followed by how exceptionally satisfied I am with the service. But, the truth is, the office speaks for itself!

Firstly, I want to send a huge thanks to Dr. Boschken and his amazing team! My treatment is almost done and my teeth look great now. Previously, my teeth were so crowded and looked bad, especially at the front. I realized it was quite a tricky issue to fix after consulting with several doctors, but Dr. Boschken and his team have done a fabulous job and made my teeth look perfect now! Two and half years ago, I visited several places, consulted with four different orthodontists and chose Dr. Boschken. I feel so lucky that I made the right choice at that time. During the treatment in the past two years, Dr. Boschken and his team diligently and conscientiously take care of my teeth during each visit. During the covid-19 pandemic, Dr. Boschken is very responsible and makes sure my treatment goes smoothly without any hassle. Now I’m more than happy with the results of my teeth and finally I have a nice looking smile. I want to appreciate it again and thanks for the fantastic job of Dr. Boschken and the team! I’m 100% satisfied with the experience and would 100% recommend Dr. Boschken!!!

Jackie F. from San Jose, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr Boschken has helped make my daughter, Brynne’s, smile more beautiful. He’s now working with Meaghan to perfect her smile. Each and every time we’ve been to visit Dr Boschken, he and his staff have been extremely accommodating. They are always courteous and kind. During the school year, we appreciate the fact that we can get in and out quickly and back to school. My kids love visiting Dr Boschken’s office. It’s fun for them. We seriously wouldn’t consider another orthodontist! This place is the best!!!

Romina A. from San Jose, CA (Source: Yelp)


Best Orthodontist in San Jose My 2 oldest children were both treated by Dr. Boschken back in 2006. I was so happy with the care they received, I sent my husband to Dr. Boschken to get Invisalign. I’ve really gotten to know Dr. Boschken and his staff over the past four years and we are treated like family every time we visit his office. Dr. Boschken has been generous in offering family discounts to each of my children as well as multiple donations to their schools. My youngest child started his orthodontic treatment this week and I am confident that he will receive the same exceptional treatment that my entire family has experienced.

Jed Q. from Milpitas, CA (Source: Yelp)


I use yelp all the time but rarely write reviews myself, although I feel my overall experience at Boschken Orthodontics makes this well deserved. Came here for an Invisalign treatment, but before that I was actually turned down by 2 other practices with high yelp reviews too. The office is very clean and their equipment seems to be the newest technology, which served for less pain and efficient appointments. Very timely and well prepped for my scheduled appointments. In fact I went during my lunch breaks, they always took note of my limited time and got me in and out. Of course, I’m just sitting in the seat observing their work, and was always impressed with the teamwork, communication, and efficiency between Dr. Boschken and his dental assistants. I’ve read a few of the other reviews on their yelp page and the common theme was their appreciation to the staff. They truly are a great staff, the registered dental assistants were super cool, made me feel welcomed, easy to share my dental concerns with, and professionals at what they do. My treatment is complete and I’m satisfied with the outcome. I imagine many practices offer the same types of treatment, but the experience and customer service at this place makes all the difference.

John D. from San Jose, CA (Source: Yelp)


I’ve always had anxiety when visiting the dentist because my teeth are in very bad shape. I have severely crooked teeth which makes it difficult to thoroughly clean in between each tooth. My dentist suggested braces and referred me to 3 different orthodontists. Dr. Boschken was the only doctor whose treatment plan did not include extraction of 4 teeth. Instead of extracting teeth, Dr. Boschken is using a bracket system called Damon that can correct my smile without removing any of my permanent teeth. If this option was not presented to me, I would not have moved forward with braces because I did not want to have my permanent teeth removed. Dr. Boschken and his staff are always extremely courteous and cheerful. The girls take the time to explain each step of the process and make me feel good about being a patient in their office. My schedule is very busy so it’s nice to know that I only have to see Dr. Boschken every 8 weeks. When I arrive at the office, there is never a wait to see the doctor and my appointments are only 5-10 minutes long. I am extremely happy with the service and treatment I’ve received from Dr. Boschken and his staff. I feel confident in referring my friends and family to this office.

Meme M. from Oakdale, CA (Source: Yelp)


I just started going to Boschken orthodontics. They are professional and very kind. Did I say that they are kind and generous? Let me tell you how kind and generous they are. I had just picked up my brand new Invisaligns and then my car was broken into and my 11 weeks of Invisalign’s were stolen! I was completely heartbroken… I had so looked forward to getting my teeth straightened! So I called them to tell them of my misfortune… dr. Boschken and his staff took care of me.. they replaced my Invisalign’s and didn’t charge extra. I am overwhelmed with gratitude! I would highly recommend Boschken Orthodontics!!

Sarah D. from San Jose, CA (Source: Yelp)


I cant express how difficult it was to find an orthodontist that would take me in without jaw surgery. I had the worst overbite; couldn’t eat correctly. I had struggled with horrible jaw pain that would constantly crack because I depended so much on my back teeth to chew (sorry for the gross detail). Every orthodontist I had seen had told me that I would need to get jaw surgery wear a metal brace connected to my teeth and around my head (horrible!) then finally metal braces for another 3-4 years. That’s a total of 5 years of torture! Luckily, I came across Dr. Boschken 2 years ago and he guaranteed that I would have the perfect smile in 2 YEARS with NO METAL BRACES AND NO JAW SURGERY. I was so happy I didn’t have to get the surgery or wear metal braces. Two years has past and my teeth look AMAZING!! Overbite completely closed and my teeth are lined up perfectly just as he had guaranteed. I am so lucky and glad I waited 6 years to find the perfect doctor. He is worth the wait! Thank you for giving me the perfect smile I never thought I would have! The staff was always friendly, eager to explain and very patient. Boschken Orthodontics has a wonderful practice, caring staff, and a terrific doctor. This place is also super clean and comforting, makes you feel right at home as soon as you step in. Excellent practice for all ages. I LOVE my smile; couldn’t be any happier! They truly are the greatest! Treatment: invisalign for 2 years

Shelli B. from Campbell, CA (Source: Yelp)


I am beyond thrilled we found Dr. Boschken! Going to the orthodontist for me growing up was a bit nerve racking but when you walk into Boschken Orthodontics you are greeted with a warm welcome and a beautiful office. The coffee and hot chocolate bar is also so nice! The staff is so awesome with our kids. Dr. Boschken and Nicole were wonderful at explaining the treatment plan. I was very impressed when I had a couple questions I forgot to ask during our consultation, Nicole was quick to respond and I really appreciated that. On our second visit as the kids got their treatment started the whole staff really did a wonderful job making them feel comfortable. I highly recommend Boschken Orthodontics and we look forward to future visits!

Dr. Boschken is the absolute best. He was the only orthodontist that would do Invisalign on me 18 years ago. Now as an adult with a family, my daughter is in her phase 1 treatment with aligners and fiancé his fixing his teeth as well. Friendly office and the only ones I trust.

Tina N. from San Jose, CA (Source: Yelp)


This is going to be a lengthy review given that the treatment and service duration was years. I’m glad that I came upon Boschken Orthodontics to get my braces. I found Dr. David Boschken from his offer on Groupon so I made the purchased and felt confident after doing my research for an orthodontist. Treatment Time: 2 years, 2 months. Office: Boschken Orthodontics is across the street from Kaiser Permanente Hospital near Cottle Rd and Highway 85. The office is clean, simple, and modern. There’s a waiting area for guests and a seating area for patients after manually checking into the computer upon arrival. There’s a small gaming area for children and a beverage spot for espresso and mini water bottles which I love. Consultation: At first, I was a bit embarrassed since many people get braces during their childhood and teenage years and I am a college student finally getting braces. During my consultation appointment, I had my x-ray taken and Dr. Boschken sat down to discuss with me how he can help with braces. He showed me that I had crowding with my teeth that I can either get Invisalign or traditional braces. Over time, I felt comfortable and nothing to be ashamed about getting braces since Dr. Boschken treat patients from different age ranges. It was inviting how they have a spinning wheel as a welcoming gift where I received an iTunes gift card. Braces: Initially, I thought I could only settle with traditional braces due to crowding. For the same price, I had many options which is fantastic compared to other dental offices and having to choose one or the other. Boschken Orthodontics offers traditional old-fashion braces, Invisalign, and the newly advanced form of braces known as the Damon Braces. I knew I couldn’t settle with Invisalign if I knew I could take it out the pain of the alignment process, so I settled with Damon Braces. The difference of Damon Braces and traditional braces is that Damon Braces is simply just brackets and wire without having the need of placing colored rubber bands on each bracket like the old-fashion braces. Damon Braces are actually a lot more flexible and lesser pain. The Damon Braces is much better to maintain in hygiene than the traditional braces with the rubber bands. The clear Damon Braces is just the center 5 teeth of the top row as ceramics and throughout my treatment, hardly anyone notice my braces unless I have a huge smile. Tip: If you’re considering Invisalign, Dr. Boschken is recognized as one of the Top Elite Invisalign Provider nationwide. Payment Plan: Dr. Boschken offers flexible payment plans where you can finance or pay installments. Prices varies each individual’s cases in addition to insurance eligibility, so there’s not much to elaborate on prices, but it’s worth it! Service: Dr. Boschken is very professional when it comes to his service. He would take the time to greet you and have a quick friendly conversation before checking up on your progress. It was overwhelming to me from counting down when he would tell me that I would be done from Summer to Fall to the End of the Year, to Next Month… but I didn’t mind at all. I was confident that as his career as a professional, he wants to deliver the best he could with perfection. Even if I have a single tooth that was close to completion, he made sure that the tooth was correctly aligned the way it should be. There is so many perks of having Dr. David Boschken as an orthodontist. His office is very up to date by having self-check in when patient arrives, and an account set up for you on his web-site to schedule appointments or to make payments. He would have newly released children’s movies to keep you entertained which makes it awesome. Anyways, I can go on about how delighted I am from my experience. Team: Boschken Orthodontics consist of a wonderful, awesome, friendly team that I felt like a monthly visit rather than an appointment. It’s bittersweet that I have completed my treatment, but I’m very satisfied with Boschken Orthodontics for their superior and professional service. I can now smile with confidence and I have been referring my friends and family to him. Thank You card is on its way!

I have never written a yelp review before, but wanted to express how great this office is. I went today for a consultation for some minor cosmetic repairs to my teeth; not only was Dr. Boshken and staff on time and attentive, but he ultimaltely recommended forgoing braces! Dr Boshken cares about the treatment he is prescribing, not just about making money. I highly recommend this office.

Sam&Rebecca W. (Source: Google)


I chose Boschken because his office was modern, with updated equipment, he has amazing staff and overall I was very happy with the way I was treated during my treatment. I’m finishing up my last set of aligners and am super happy with my smile now and the attention to detail he gave. I highly recommend this office!

Malika L. from San Francisco, CA (Source: Yelp)


Yes, you can have braces again at age 69! This time I’m using Invisalign. I checked out several orthodontic practices and Dr. Boschken had the best reviews PLUS a recommendation from one of the dentists I was getting a quote from. He suggested I try Dr. Boschken, the “Guru of Invisalign!” The moment I entered Dr. Boschken’s office, I knew I was in the right place. Every single person in the office has been incredibly welcoming and uplifting. Nicole, the director of operations, was very supportive in describing the entire process from start to finish. Dr. B, as they call him, is indeed an expert in his field. He is friendly, easy to understand, and clearly knows what he’s doing. He detailed the process for me. The equipment is the absolute latest and best so you can see exactly what your teeth look like now, and what they will look like when you’re done. It can seem expensive, but the support, expertise, and friendly staff from the people who greet you, to the finance coordinator, Sonya, and the registered dental assistants. I just started my first retainer. Danielle, the dental assistant, set me up and made sure I felt comfortable putting the retainer in and taking them out. Dr. B reviewed everything to make sure it was all in order. They were missing a few dental assistants that day who were out sick, so everyone was pitching in to help. Even Dr. B was sanitizing the equipment and trays! I highly recommend this friendly, wise, supportive and team of experts to help you have the best and healthiest teeth. I look forward to to seeing how my teeth progress.

I went to Dr. Boschken a couple of years ago to have my teeth straighten using the Invisalign Treatment Plan.  I finished treatment several months ago, and I am elated with the results.  I now make it a point to smile in pictures where before I would smile with my lips closed.  Dr. Boschken and his staff are highly skilled, professional, efficient, welcoming, and very friendly.  I don’t know how they do it, but they are never late for an appointment and the majority of appointments are only 10-15 minute appointments.  Dr. Boschken set-up a treatment plan, projected the length of treatment, and advised me what to expect over the course of the treatment plan.  After having my top teeth straighten, I decided to straighten my lower teeth as well.  Dr. Boschken was extremely accommodating with my change of plans, and again after I changed plans after my lower teeth were straighten to get 4 Dental Implants in the back of my lower jaw from teeth I lost as an adolescent.  Once again, Dr. Boschken was accommodating to delay making my final retainers until the implants and crowns are in place which will take another 6 months to a year.  Dr. Boschken did not charge me for the two plan changes I made, and continues to monitor my progress with the implants to make sure everything is in order.  Needless to say, Dr. Boschken’s Orthodonic Practice continues to rate 5 stars out of 5 stars in my book.

Zeki G. from San Francisco, CA (Source: Yelp)


My mom gave me the “straight” talk 30 years ago: Wear your braces or live with the gaps between your teeth. Well, I did not listen until Dr. Boschken gave me the second session…. I have been in treatment for months now due to the extraordinary nature of my treatment. Let’s be honest, it is hard to live with attachments in your mouth which you were not born with, but Dr. Boschken and his angels make the treatment a nice experience -as good as it gets. Dr. Boschken gave me the reality check in my first visit, no false promises, the courses the treatment might take and the options moving forward, he charted out a plan. A plan is a plan and the plan can change but not the ultimate goal: Straighten the teeth… He told me based on experience the milestones we will hit, the decision points, courses we might take, the what-if scenarios. I have good orthodontist friends all over the world who can not conduct my treatment due to location and the frequent visits required. I have listened to them and listened to what they had to say. Only Dr. Boschken’s recommendations and plan matched with these professionals’ and true friends’ stories… We are on our track to success and I can not wait to have the big smile which I see coming down the road, approaching day by day… Thanks Dr.Boschken! -zeki

This orthodontist private practice is very well structured, organized, and fast in their services. Dr B’s staff is of high caliber and takes a lot of pride in getting the best results for his patients. I’m out of the doctor offices usually within 5-10 minutes and really like that he has two separate offices that makes it convenient for folks living in the South Bay. The dr also really digs deep into his planning for Invisalign, offers very cost friendly financing options, and the treatment I started seeing results in the first few months. Overall, it’s a fantastic place to get ortho care, with a brilliant friendly staff. I’m very satisfied with my current smile and would encourage anyone to come in for a consultation.

Our family has been getting orthodontic treatment from Dr. Boschken for about 5 years. Our son was first to undergo braces. Toward the end of his treatment, I saw that Dr. Boschken had a special offer for parents of current patients. My husband and I took him up on that offer. I was starting a business and wanted to look more professional. I was excited to try the Invisalign as I had had full-on braces many years before. My husband had never had them but was ready to try. As our treatments progressed, we were both pleased by the results we were seeing. Dr. Boschken was helpful to me when I was contemplating veneers for a funny front tooth I had. His input and close contact with my dentist was instrumental in getting the look I wanted. I like that he’s very upfront and tells you exactly what his opinion is on something. His many years in practice and knowledge of the dental field are invaluable. When I was having an issue with an implant and crown I went to Dr. Boschken for his professional opinion on the situation. It helped me see things more clearly and to make an informed decision. We appreciate Dr. Boschken’s exceptional orthodontic care, experience and refreshing honesty. See our before and after photo.

Munira W. from San Jose, CA (Source: Yelp)


Our family has been treated by Dr. Boschken for its orthodontic needs for about 10 years. All of us in the family have been patients of Dr Boschken at one point or another. We have always been impressed by the professional customer service displayed by the entire staff. It’s always very easy to schedule or reschedule appointments and once you are in the office, they manage their time efficiently, to get you out as soon as possible. This is important because we are both working parents. Both our girls started treatment with Dr Boschken a couple of years ago and they enjoy going to the office because the length of the visits are just right and the staff and Doctor are very helpful and friendly. They always explain all the procedures very thoroughly, so we know exactly what our treatment involves. My husband and I had our Invisilign treatment through Dr Boschken as well and we continue to be reminded for our free 6 month check-ups although our treatment ended years ago. I have referred several friends to Dr Boschken and they are all very happy with his treatment. In general, we are impressed with the quality of work, customer service, the office (very clean and open), the way the staff efficiently manages our appointments and their flexibility. I will continue to recommend Dr Boschken to all my friends and family.

Marc N. from San Jose, CA (Source: Yelp)


just recently started Ortho treatment at this clinic and I could not be happier.  From the front desk “Sonya”to the back office staff this place has made this experience wonderful.  Dr Boschken’s mannerism and confidence has put this dental phobes fears at easy.  Also the office is so modern and clean you find yourself not wanting to leave after your appointment is over.

L R. from Sunnyvale, CA (Source: Yelp)


My 15 year old daughter is currently doing Invisalign with Dr. Boschken.  The whole experience has been wonderful.  His office is beautiful and the staff are very friendly.  For a teenager to do invisalign instead of braces is such a nice option.  My daughter is very happy and almost done after just 6 months!  My son will following very soon.  I wouldn’t trust any other Orthodontist with my children’s mouth!  I’d definately recommend this office to everyone!

Cassandra M. from San Jose, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Boschken and his team are fabulous! They are friendly, professional , caring and really make you feel like part of the family! The office itself is exquisite, clean, bright, modern and very comfortable. My family enjoys their visits very much and I recommend the office to all of my friends! Dr. Boschken offers special ‘thank you’ incentives when my friends get started in treatment, and they always have fresh, free espresso and lots of new magazines, video games and hd tv shows to make me feel like I can’t go home! All in all we visit for the fun and wonderful friends we have made (his staff is so efficient and special to us and Dr. Boschken is top notch!) This team really cares-the importance of proper health care is really emphasized, and I trust them completely!

I recently moved to California and needed to have my braces removed. I went in for an initial visit with a very well-hyped orthodontist, and although the office was nice and the staff friendly, the price was ridiculous. Plus, he tried to steer me to one of his friends to have my teeth cleaned BEFORE taking off my braces! So I came on Yelp and looked at some reviews, then emailed 6 different orthos asking for a ballpark figure on price. Lindsey at Dr. Boschken was the first to respond with a phone call. She was very friendly and easy-going on the phone, and scheduled me for a complimentary appointment right away. I loved the feel of Dr. Boschken’s office right away. I read on here where someone felt he wasn’t used to brown people, and that they seemed to cater to only one ethnic group. Well, I’m as brown as can be and I have a built in radar for that type of thing, but I didn’t detect a single drop of it at this office. The staff were very friendly and welcoming. Lindsey was very personable and she made my husband and I feel very comfortable. Dr. Boschken came in to talk to us and I was surprised by how outgoing and vibrant he is. He did not seemed rushed at all, and listened to my many concerns about the removal (I had a traumatized tooth from my last ortho visit) and came up with a plan to get the braces off with minimal discomfort to me. His office was very clean and modern (I am germ phobic) and there are 4 nice chairs and a very nice set up. Dr. Boschken was very busy, all the chairs were full, but he spent a lot of time with me. For those who say he is rushed, well, he is. He is the lone dentist and has to supervise his staff. There were a few times that he had to leave me to check on some children, but I didn’t mind at all. He spent a lot of time getting my braces out and it was painful to an extent because of my mouth issues. I stopped him when I needed to, and he made the necessary adjustments to ensure my comfort. My previous ortho had the softest touch in the world, so I was spoiled. Dr. Boschken’s touch is moderate. All in all, I was very satisfied. The price was right, the treatment was great, the staff was superb. I would highly recommend Dr. Boschken.

Stacy R. from San Jose, CA (Source: Yelp)


I have not seen Dr. Boschken yet, I was just referred to Dr. Boschken for two reasons 1) I need a second opinion and 2) he is the best at what he does. However, what I was told by my DDS is that the office is busy, and they will not “hold your hand”. My DDS and his office staff are very hands on and super personable. So they only refer their “tough cases and tough people who can handle him”. Wish me luck!

I had a great experience at Boschken Orthodontics and as a result have referred many friends and family members. The doctor and entire staff are great and quite possibly my favorite thing is that they stay on schedule and don’t keep you waiting in the lobby like most other doctor offices. Love the quick and efficient appointments. Looking to get your grill fixed? Call Dr. B and his team. You’ll be smiling a bit bigger and brighter in no time!

I have bad teeth. I should have had braces when I was a kid but we couldn’t afford it. Now that I am in my mid-30’s I have the money, but I am now too self conscious to walk around with a mouth full of metal. I heard about Invisalign and I got several exams/prices, but in the end I chose Dr. Boschken because of his professionalism and the confidence that I had in him and his office. Dr. Boschken went over the whole procedure with me and I knew what to expect in advance. He and his staff were patient with me and answered all of my questions both in advance as well as after I started the Invisalign procedure. I am several months into my aligners now, and I have been happy with the results so far. His office staff is very friendly and I have never had to wait more than a few minutes for my appointment (and I usually arrive 10 or so minutes in advance). I still have about a year to go with my aligners, but I have been very happy with Dr. Boschken and his staff so far.

I rarely write reviews and feel that professional offices like these don’t get enough reviews (bad or positive) to really give a reader a good amount of information before choosing to go to a particular office, so here’s my two cents. Today was my first time to Dr. Boschken’s office. SCHEDULING: I love it when an office uses technology to make things more convenient. Dr. Boschken’s office has an online website system that allows you to find all the information you need, sign up as a new patient, make appointments, pay your monthly payments, and contact the office. They are available early in the mornings 8 AM which is great since this gets it out of the work day before I come into work nearby. I made an appointment online through their website and a person from their office called me back soon enough and sent me an email. I prefer that kind of system: both digital and person. ENVIRONMENT: When you walk in, the first thing you notice is the giant flat screen TV on the wall. Then you notice the giant fish tank. Then the comfortable couches. Everything is so clean and classy and modern-looking. Some of the amenities include cold, refrigerated, bottled water, fresh coffee and two arcade machines! There’s plenty of mouth rinsing stations and clean restrooms. The layout of the office is open and spacious with plenty of light streaming through. The feeling is comfortable and relaxing. It’s my kind of office. Afterwards, for being a new patient, they allowed me to spin this prize wheel for a free $25 gift card to various stores. It’s gimmicky but pretty fun for the kid in you! They are also going towards more of the paperless direction in order to be more green. They also have a referral program: if someone you refer to them signs up as a new patient, you get a $100 VISA gift card. It’s the extra mile that they go to that is nice even if it seems slightly gimmicky to some people. STAFF: The staff are very personable and friendly; they smile a lot. They explain everything that is going on and make sure to ask you if you have any questions. For the first visit, you’ll meet many people: a person to take your X-rays, a person to take pictures of your teeth, a person to explain the process, and a person to explain the finances, so it may feel like you’re getting passed like a basketball but they’re all very friendly. Nicole (the person who explains the finances) and Sonya (the person who explained the process) went through everything in the contract and explained all the different types of payment plans; there is a good variety for your convenience, and many are interest free. ORTHODONTIST: Dr. Boschken was friendly enough for me although his talk with me was fairly quick; however, I’m not the type of person that needs a doctor to linger around for too long. I did spend a longer time with his staff than with him but that’s just the first consultation visit. He shook my hand when greeting hello and goodbye, maintained eye contact, explained things to me in a language I can understand, and answered my questions. He possesses a knowledge that is up-to-date with the latest orthodontic technology. In my case he explained that I have to use metal braces and not Invisalign, which is his specialty (he gives talks about it across the country too), because I have too much crowding and a narrow/small mouth. If there’s anything major I dislike or noteworthy, I’ll make sure to update later, but for now, I’m very pleased with Dr. Boschken and his staff.

This is how an office should be. I took my little brother here to get his braces fixed. He’s had his on for about 6 years now and his ortho moved on him. So his teeth are all sorts of messed up! Upon entering the office, I noticed just how clean everything was. It was state-of-the-art and beautiful. We were greeted right away by the staff who agreed to seeing us earlier than was expected. Everyone here was very nice and offered us coffee (with different types of syrups too!?). I even noticed the little welcome paper that they framed on the desk for my brother and other new clients. These people reallly try to make you feel welcome. I appreciate that a lot. We didn’t wait for long before we were given a tour around the whole office. They have a mini-arcade where kids can wait and play and a beautiful salt water aquarium. The assistants also wasted no time to get my brothers x-rays done and pictures taken. We also met Dr. Boschken, who is very friendly and nice. He got straight to the point about my brother’s teeth, what he recommends, and how long it would take. I don’t think they’re money-hungry here because my brother wanted invisalign but bc the way his teeth were, he wouldn’t be eligible until after some extractions. It would take a while and cost more money. Dr. Boschken said we could do it if he really wanted to but he doesn’t recommend it because it’s a waste of time and our money. Well thanks for being so considerate! The pricing of the braces and the amount of time he would be done with everything is not bad either. Trust me, I’ve seen worse. And they’ve got great payment options that can accommodate to anyone’s needs. Sometimes, I wish they did regular dental work here so I can come in as well. haha but they did offer to make me retainers since I lost mine 10 years ago!
