Check out what some of our happy patients are saying about us:

Dr. Samadani made my teenage son, and i, both have beautiful smiles! She is  very professional, skilled and gentle. I was so happy with the work she was doing with my son, that i decided to have her treat my own major ‘bite’ problem with Invisaline. She, along with her wonderful staff members, made the process  seem breezy. She worked with both my son and i in a way which fit our schedules, and our needs throughout the process. I am SO glad i did this—and so is my son. To make something like braces into a good experience—now that is true talent:)

I’ve already had braces as a kid and needed a new retainer. I’m new to this area and found this place on my way to work in Porter Square. I can’t even express how friendly everyone in that office is! When I called, they were so accommodating when I made my appointment. Dr Samadani was so pleasant and patient with me. She sat down with me and went over my options. I guess the consultation was free! The front desk was so nice, they checked my insurance to see if anything was covered and explained what everything meant. It turned out that getting a retainer wasn’t as expensive as I thought it would be! Even the girls that were taking my impressions were so friendly!

So my son, who’s a freshman in college, sent me a text last week that his retainer wire broke. Unfortunately, it’s not something that can wait until he comes home to California during break. He contacted Cambridge Orthodontics and was seen by Dr. Samadani. Like a one reviewer posted, I was also concerned about the cost (college is expensive enough). And just like said reviewer, I was also surprised when he said Dr. Samadani fixed it for free! He said it did not take long either and they were super nice. I just want to extend my gratitude to everyone at Cambridge Orthodontics. Thank you for your kindness and for taking care of my son!

TL;DR: Dr. Samadani and her staff were incredibly kind, friendly, and took their time with me, even though it was my first time with them and I was not a regular patient. I would trust Dr. Sadamani’s professional opinion and advice and wholeheartedly recommend Cambridge Orthodontics to anyone looking for an orthodontist! I’ve had my permanent retainer for 4 years before one side of my wire came popped off, which impeded my eating. I couldn’t go to my orthodontist because he is based in California, so I called around to multiple orthodontic offices in Somerville and Cambridge area. Cambridge Orthodontics was able to get me an appointment within 5 days of my call, compared to other places that offered appointment slots a month out from when I called. I appreciate that they understood the urgency of my situation and tried to get me in at the earliest time possible. The visit itself was nothing short of a pleasant experience! From the staff members who aided with different parts of my procedure to Dr. Samadani’s consultation, everyone thoroughly explained to me what they were doing every step of the way. Dr. Samadani was especially thoughtful in explaining the different options I had for my permanent retainer. Frankly, my biggest fear was going to an orthodontist’s office that I am not a regular at and be ripped off. I was on guard that they would tell me to replace my entire permanent retainer rather than repair just the broken part. Dr. Samadani was really honest about the state of my permanent retainer and I felt that she suggested the most practical option for me moving forward. I truly appreciated her honesty and integrity most about my experience with her.

Dr. Samadani is absolutely the best! I always had a fear on Dentists and Orthodontists and have a terrible gag reflex. Mostly the reason why I waited until I was 25 to get the braces done. She helped me get over my fear of metal tools in my mouth and helped correct my bite and shape on my teeth. Truly an amazing Doctor!

I just recently completed my second round of braces (first time as an adult) and couldn’t be more happy with the results! Dr. Samadani and her staff were friendly, helpful and very patient with me who happened to be neurotic and not the best patient at all times. Being an adult patient I was nervous about returning to the Orthodontist, however I found that it was a very relaxed atmosphere with many other adult patients. I would highly recommend this location for other adult patients. *Parking however can be tricky.

I can’t say enough good things about Dr. Samadani! She is skilled, friendly, kind, and helpful. Dr. Samadani coordinated my Invisalign process to make space for an implant and when my other oral surgery procedures took longer than expected, she was extremely flexible and accommodating with arranging extra Invisalign aligners. The office is very easy to get to from the Porter Square subway stop and the staff have been great at fitting in short appointments on late notice. This must be the best orthodontist in the Cambridge area!

I got my first (and hopefully last) set of braces as an adult under the care of Dr. Petrosino and the Cambridge Orthodontics staff.  Prior to selecting Cambridge Ortho, I had done copious amounts of research, and interviewed (yes, interviewed) quite a few orthodontists.  I chose Cambridge Ortho because I felt that I would get great dental care, with no fluff.  If you are looking for one of those posh places where you are served mineral water and green tea  in reception, soothing harp  music playing in the background, you will be disappointed here. However, if you are looking for a place that provides excellent dental care in a clean, friendly, relaxed but no-frills environment, go here.  I am now about 2 years out of my braces (with good results) and while I’m not crazy about having to wear retainers (forever?!), I am quite happy with the quality of the care I got and continue to receive at Cambridge Orthodontics. And I agree with the other reviewer, it’s a great place for adult patients.

Dr. Samadani does a fantastic job  – especially when it comes to making my kids feel comfortable in a dentist chair. I have 3 kids – all in various stages of getting their teeth straightened and she’s been great every step of the way. She relates well with children, is  patient, and always makes time to answer all of our questions – both mine and my kids’. She’s a great orthodontist. I wouldn’t trust my kids’ smiles to anyone else.

My son is a patient here and the medical advice and care he has received is superlative.  On top of the excellent orthodontics, I have never experienced more competent or friendly office staff in any medical office! Lauren is just fabulous.  I recommend Cambridge Orthodontics to everyone I know and am grateful to continue with this practice when my younger son begins orthodontic treatment next year!

Dr. Samadani is a Godsend. I overlooked getting braces for years because of my fear of dentists/orthodontists and the bad experiences I’ve had in the past. I only went in after my younger brother went in for braces and praised her work. Truly the most painless experience I’ve ever had. Dr. Samadani and her staff are so wonderful and kind and make you feel like family. I recommended her to my boss and will continue to recommend her to anyone looking for a great orthodontist.

Jennifer F. from Cambridge, MA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Samadani is everything you want in an orthodontist – so gentle and thorough. She was very good at explaining choices that I might have to make. I had braces for an overbite.  It took about 18 mos, start to finish, for my relatively simple case. Since I finished my treatment (approx 2009), my friends have sent their kids there, too, and they’ve been happy.  Also, her billing office was good with coordinating with my flex spending account.

Dr. Samadani is one of the sharpest around. I am very pleased with the results of my treatment and would recommend this practice to anyone looking for orthodontic care. Never felt like I was getting the runaround. Appointments were simple to make and the office is simple to get to for most people, especially via the T/ bike.

Lauren M. from Chicago, IL (Source: Yelp)


Cambridge Orthodontics is definitely the best choice in orthodontic care! I just moved to Boston but was still completing my Invisalign treatment. Dr. Samadani made it SO easy for her to take over my case and finish my treatment. She took the notches off my teeth and fit the new retainer all without charging me! Dr. Samadani and her team are all SO friendly and nice, a surprise for me since most of the services in Boston don’t seem to care much about their patients. The building is also very easy to get to (right off porter square) and has ample street parking. A+
