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

Jac C. from Brooklyn, NY (Source: Yelp)

★★★★★

My daughter was 8 when she began seeing Dr. Francis! She loves him. He encourages good habits regarding her potential braces care and she complies! I love how they care for parents and kids…encouraging autonomy during the visit while being open and transparent with parents. The staff is friendly and I love the hygienist! Their COVID practices is also great and makes maintaining care easy!

We have two children (twins) that are under the care of Dr. Francis. Actually only one is in braces now and the other has been checked every 6 months to determine start dates. Ever since we stepped foot in the door, I’ve been impressed with all the staff. Friendly, professional, always on time. On top of that, I’ve never gotten the impression that we were being pressured, or worse, being “upsold” to unnecessary tx plans. I also really like that we knew exactly what we were signing up to for our son (7 months into his tx plan). Our monthly fee, which is very fair, includes any replacement of brackets or wires, which takes a lot of pressure off us. I’ve also appreciated, having been through braces and additional orthodontic devices, that Dr. Francis wasn’t trying to rush into treatment for my daughter right away. All in all, I really don’t think you can go wrong selecting this practice.

I highly recommend this office!! Dr. Francis and his staff really take customer service to another level. The care and dedication they have for their customers, especially the kids, is phenomenal. Dr. Francin really takes the time to explain procedures and has a true passion for his line of work. He goes above and beyond your expectations and always answers my million and one questions. I started my invisalign treatment last May, after my husband got his as well, and I could already see a drastic change in my smile! We are both happy with the entire process and experience! Go visit them!

★★★★★

Love these guys. The team is super friendly no rush thru doctor , they will take their time to explain and make sure you feel comfortable. I travel 30 miles just to come to this location , it’s well worth it , THERE IS NO WAITING TIME!!! What a plus . I have had a bad experience with 2 orthos in my area and got referred to him , best referral I ever had . Have one more appointment left and I am all done (and happy with my result) Dr. Oral works with anyone wether you have insurance or no. In my case I didn’t have insurance , yea yea I know. But he worked with me on payments and a good deal ! My 10 year old daughter got braces by Dr. Oral as well ( and yes that is his real last name , what a trusting plus) she never complaint and was actually proud to have them. Her teeth look great and she gets plenty of compliments. As for the office : Super clean – brand spanking new – with flat screen tvs and plenty of reads … Even tho there is no waiting time . Also you will have flat screen tvs over your ortho chair . Loved him and his Team 5Stars well deserved

AS an adult braces wearer, I was appreciative that Dr. Francis LISTENED to what I wanted, didn’t try to drive me into a treatment plan with which I was uncomfortable, and patiently answered ALL of my questions. I could not be more happy with my results. And, he may not even be the best part of the whole expereince, because his staff is an absolute delight to interact with. 2 months post braces, I still can’t believe this is my smile.

★★★★★

Dr. Francis and his assistants are very experienced and work great with each other. Of the two and a half years that I had braces, none of it was stressful. I had few problems with my braces, all of which were corrected carefully by Dr. Francis and his team. I don’t think that I could ask for a better experience.

★★★★★

This orthodontic office is awesome! The staff is very friendly and helpful and they seemingly care for each individual who steps into their office. My visits have been quick, informative, and painless. Dr. Francis is my favorite, he’s very knowledgeable and professional. I trust him with all my dental questions . I love that they do not rush you in or out and always give time for whatever you have to say. I highly recommend him to anyone seeking orthodontic treatment!

★★★★★

I brought my kids here from a referral by my dentist. I loved that I could do a virtual consultation beforehand so they could pre-assess whether or not we really needed to come in. They were extremely helpful with finding a time that worked with me, and I was glad that I could bring both my kids to be seen at the same time. I appreciate all of the techy reminders and the fact that I didn’t have to submit any paperwork as it was all done digitally. The staff members were very friendly and helpful. The explanations of care and future visits were clear and understandable. They put me at ease and answered all my questions. I didn’t feel unsure about what we could expect for the follow up visits. Overall I had a very positive experience at this practice and wouldn’t hesitate at all to give them a 5-star review.

★★★★★

How do you pick out an orthodontist at random? Well luckily for me, I used Yelp! I found Dr. Franis via Yelp and decided to go for a consultation. The staff are friendly and Dr. Francis is amazing. I just got my braces off this week and couldn’t be more happy with my results. I couldn’t have made a better decision on choosing Decatur I

I was referred to Dr. Francis by my primary dentist and I am so happy that I chose Decatur Orthodontics for my braces treatment. The staff is amazing! They will go out of their way to accommodate you and you can tell they genuinely enjoy interacting with you. I had my braces on for 2 years and 8 months and it was well worth the wait. I had no doubt that my teeth would look good but they look absolutely amazing. I am so pleased with everything. I cannot stop smiling.

★★★★★

Dr. Francis and his staff was absolutely amazing! It was our first visit and my daughter and I loved each friendly face! My daughter, Khloey said she really loved Alicia and that made me feel extremely comfortable ( I really loved her too she was super friendly ) Thank you to Dr. Francis for being extremely informative and offering the best treatment for my daughter. One thing I really loved about Dr. Francis and knew that this was the best fit for my daughter was when he asked me, “mom are you understanding everything I’m explaining?” ( because it was a lot of information lol ) We are looking forward to this process! Thank you Decatur Orthodontist for your amazing service !!!

By far the best place to go when braces are needed. I’ve had my braces on for about 2 years now, my teeth straightened fast. It’s a hugeee difference now. I love my smile and not afraid to show it,whereas before I got them I use to cover my smile with my hands. They deserve a 5 star for the miracles they did. Also very good customer service and they also move fast

★★★★★

Decatur orthodontics is absolutely worthy of a five star rating. I just got my braces off and throughout the process they were professional, personable and did a great job. Not to mention the guys name is Oral. I mean come on now, he was destined to be the greatest orthodontist of all time, and he has lived up to that prophecy.

Denise C. from Decatur, GA (Source: Yelp)

★★★★★

Dr. Oral Francis knows what he is doing, as well as his entire staff! Very clean office and very efficient staff. I might be one of his oldest patients, 66 years old and highly recommend this practice. I needed another ‘chewy’ and they shipped out the same day! With a name like Dr. Oral, this ortho was meant for this career. 

Antavius E. from North Hollywood, Los Angeles, CA (Source: Yelp)

★★★★★

Dr. Oral Francis has been my orthodontist for nearly 5 years! I’m probably his most complex case ever, but we are going strong on this journey together. Since I’ve been attending Decatur Orthodontics, I’ve established and maintained some of the best relationships with the staff. At this point in my life, they’re all considered my family. I truly believe in the saying “it takes a village to raise a child” because that’s exactly how I feel about these people. I enjoy interacting with everyone, and I know that it’s going to be a joyous moment once my treatment is complete! Best staff ever!

★★★★★

I had a great experience last week with Dr. Francis. My retainer I have had since high school is in dire need of replacement (I’ll spare you the details there), and I have a tooth that has moved significantly since my days of braces. He and his staff were all smiles and very professional. They patiently took me through all my care and payment options while I asked a ton of questions, and I still don’t know what I’m going to do yet, but I’ll definitely stick with this practice. It’s a brand new office near downtown Decatur, so a few pluses there – everything is shiny and new, they’re using the latest and greatest technology, and after my appointment, I ran a bunch of errands near the square. I’m pregnant also, so it’s good to have a good orthodontist in mind for when the time comes to bring my little girl there. If she’s anything like her mama, she’s going to have one heck of an overbite!

The entire staff is very friendly and made my son (6y) feel so comfortable. Both Dr. Francis and Alicia easily engaged my son and helped him feel involved even though he is so young. Dr. Francis has been incredibly thoughtful about whether or not to move forward with an intervention and when it would be most beneficial. We are very thankful we found this practice!

Our daughter’s dentist told us to get an ortho consult for braces. I reviewed the list and then did some research before calling Decatur Orthodontics. From the first phone call until our appointment today, I knew I chose the right place. Kayla was wonderful booking the appointment and answering my questions to meeting Alicia for the consultation today. She was great with taking the pictures and explaining the financials and insurance. Then meeting Dr. Francis was wonderful. Explained our options in a clear manner and spoke directly to my daughter as if she was an adult. This relationship started wonderfully and I look forward to the next year or so with them. My daughter told me she was excited on the way home, major win!

My kids have been patients of Dr. Francis and the Decatur Orthodontics team for years, and I can’t say enough good things. Dr. F takes the time to explain the treatment plan and options, answer all questions, and reassure both the kids and parents. The rest of the staff is wonderful, too. And Teena at the front desk is a true gem.

Great patient and customer service! I have been a patient of Dr. Oral Francis for over 2yrs now and I have never had any problems with any of my services. From the beginning of the service to the end Dr Oral Francis and his staff have been and still are the best I mean it from the bottom of my heart Dr Francis and his staff comes highly recommended.

Going to Decatur Orthodontist was one of the best decisions that I made. From the moment I went in for my consultation, I noticed that everyone there truly loved working there! Dr. Francis is very thorough and answered any questions I had no matter how simple. He and his staff always gives 100% high-quality service. Definitely highly recommended!! Thank You Dr. Francis and Team, I love my new smile!

★★★★★

Love this place! EVERYONE in this office is friendly, knowledgeable and accommodating. Dr. Francis has worked wonders on improving my smile, and was patient and reassuring during the time I was freaking out about a tooth that was being moved a few spaces down. I have since learned to trust the process, and so far I’m very pleased with the results. They also have some of the best Covid-19 precautions I’ve seen in a doctor’s office. As a person that is typically hard to please, I definitely recommend this place.

I’ve been going to Decatur Orthodontics for a little less than 2 yrs now for my braces. I recently got my braces taken off and LOVE my results. The staff are all nice and informative. They’re very clean and neat. There were always reminders for upcoming appointments in case you forget. My constant appointments to tighten and checkups for my braces were always done in a timely manner. They’ve been great! I highly recommend.

We all dread the orthodontic referral, or at least I did. However, the staff at Decatur Orthodontics made this process as painless as it could be. I also wasn’t the one wearing the braces, but my daughter would agree. On her last visit she actually said that she missed being able to pick out the different color rubber bands. If that isn’t an endorsement I don’t know what is. From the first visit to the last, the staff were very friendly, explained each step, answered our questions, set up appointments around her school schedule, and there was rarely ever a wait. Dr. Francis was personable and patient (my daughter had to have her retainer redone twice because she lost it or did not wear it as instructed). I could not have asked for a better referral. Along with just an overall positive experience, my daughter’s teeth look great!

Alicia B. from Atlanta, GA (Source: Yelp)

★★★★★

Dr. Oral Francis and his staff are wonderful! They do their best to work with you regarding payment, scheduling, orthodontic adjustments, etc. I am beyond happy with the results of my braces. Dr. Francis is extremely kind and professional. I would absolutely recommend Decatur Orthodontics to anyone in the Atlanta/Decatur area. My experience was exceptional and my teeth look AMAZING!!

Kathy B. from Seattle, WA (Source: Yelp)

★★★★★

We did an initial consult for my sons and had a great experience. Very friendly, welcoming team and Dr. Francis was very easy to talk to and thoroughly explained what he was seeing and what he would suggest in terms of eventual treatment needs. For now we will watch and wait a bit longer but I left the office feeling very positive about the practice!

Decatur Orthodontics is an extremely clean environment that treats its clients well. Any issues are always brought up to the client ahead of time and there is clear communication between patients and the orthodontist. Unlike many other offices I’ve been to, patients are able to speak with their orthodontist during every visit to make sure they are given all the information they need regarding their progress. Even though my 3 year journey with braces was brutal, it was all worth it for the beautiful smile that Decatur Orthodontics gave me!

John Evans (Source: Google)

★★★★★

We are very pleased with Decatur Orthodontist and the entire staff. From the moment I walked into the office with my children, the staff had smiles on and such cheerful personality. They made my daughter feel comfortable and even talked with my other children who aren’t currently patients with them. I’ve told many people about this office and will continue to do so. It’s clean, organized and friendly. Thank you!!!!

Sarah B. from Santa Clarita, CA (Source: Yelp)

★★★★★

We are in the area temporarily and I called to see if they could help with my daughters wire poking out the back bracket and into her gums. Not only did they get us right in in a non-patient day, they did not charge for the supplies or time it took to fix the issue. They were so friendly and gentle with my daughter. Will definitely be keeping their number!!

Yolanda M. from Atlanta, GA (Source: Yelp)

★★★★★

I’ve been coming here for a while now, it’s been a year to be exact. I looked at this location for a free consultation in reference to getting braces. Not only did I like the price, they were friendly and did explain to me in great detail what I needed to have done. Can I add that Dr. Francis is not bad on the eyes…… Anyway, the atmosphere is great and everyone is always professional and provide great customer service, even when I have to reschedule my appointments, they don’t give me a hard me. My teeth are coming along nicely and while I hate getting my braces tightened, I can see the changes that are being made. I enjoy the fact that Dr. Francis will let me know the reason why he is doing something and why it has to be done.

Decatur Orthodontics is the BEST! The staff is professional, approachable and they truly care about all of the patients and their families. Teena and Thatiana are awesome, along with the entire staff. Dr. Oral Francis has the best demeanor of any doctor I have encountered and quick witted, too. The office is always tidy and the location is perfect for our family. Parking can be a bit tricky, but not enough to take away a star. We are so thankful for all they have done for our family (3 out 4 of us are patients).

I had been searching for an orthodontist, after reading hundreds of reviews for different providers, Dr. O. Francis had the most consistent and positive reviews. That made it even easier among other things to make my decision. His team was very pleasant thru out the entire process from the virtual consultation to the welcoming staff when I began treatment. Alicia and Molly are PHENOMENAL!! I would definitely recommend Dr. Francis and his team, which I already have, without hesitation.

Autumn S. from Atlanta, GA (Source: Yelp)

★★★★★

Wow! Shiny, new office in downtown Decatur with easy parking and great staff. Dr. Francis is professional, warm and friendly. He took time to explain my options and showed me exactly what needed to be addressed to correct an overbite coming back after years of not wearing my retainer. Can’t wait to bring my kids back when it’s time for their braces!
