Allan A. from Santa Clarita, CA (Source: Yelp)

★★★★★

I was a transfer patient from another orthodontist that retired and my care was continued to completion by Dr. Megan LeCornu/Embrace Your Smile. My insurance and copay were paid off prior to becoming Dr. LeCornu’s patient. I was treated as if I had begun the whole treatment plan from the beginning. I never received anything short of excellent care and personal treatment by all of the staff, from reception desk to dental chair, everyone was competent, friendly, and efficient. Embrace Your Smile has two locations that adds to flexibility in appointment scheduling. If you are in the market for an Orthodontist as an adult or for kids this is the place to be. My kids will still be covered if they break or lose their retainer. I can’t say enough about how good this practice is. Allan D. Arthur

I like to strongly recommend the orthodontic services of Dr. Gilbertson and Dr. LeCornu. Both my children had wonderful experiences with them and when it came time to have my teeth realigned, I was very happy that this team was available. Their entire staff is highly professional. Dr. LeCornu has made my experience an easy and happy one. The ambiance in the office is energized and efficient. My dentist, Dr. Whitmer, with whom I have great respect has high praise for Dr. LeCornu and was eager to connect me with her. Do not hesitate to contact this great group!

Dr. Megan and her whole team are just the best in Santa Clarita! My daughter and I have had the best experience over these last 2 1/2 years and are delighted with the final results. Thank you thank you thank you for your dedication and patience at times as we needed to reschedule appointments here and there. 5+ stars hands down!

★★★★★

We started with Dr. Gilbertson about 5 years ago & loved him! During the first year, we started seeing Dr. Megan when she was joining the practice & was just as impressed. She’s kind, funny, knowledgeable, honest & patient – her! All 3 of my kids & now my husband have received treatments from Embrace Your Smile & definitely recommend them. Dr. Peter has been such a perfect addition to the practice & he is awesome as well!!!

Everyone at the office is always fantastic, from the front office, to the back office assistants, and the doctors, everyone makes you feel very welcomed in a friendly and fun environment. I had such a pleasant experience each and every time, I was actually sad when my braces came off because that means I don’t get to visit every month or so 🙁 Besides all of that, my teeth look absolutely beautiful!! I did my research before I chose an office and this one not only stood out to me, but exceeded my expectations every time. I highly recommend this office! Thank you to all of the doctors and staff here, you guys are wonderful!

★★★★★

I can’t say enough great things about this practice! Both of my boys have had such a great experience from the initial consultation to getting their braces off. Each and every person that we have interacted with has been so kind and are great at easing nerves and explaining every thing they do along the way. From the kind greeting you get from the front office when you enter to the professionalism from the doctors and techs, they make you feel like they care about each and every patient and make you feel so comfortable. You are always greeted by name when you arrive and we have never waited longer than 10 minutes at most for an appointment, they are usually waiting for you when you arrive! It’s so easy to make appointments and they handle all the insurance and financials so you don’t have to worry about it. Whenever someone asks for a recommendation for an orthodontist I am quick to respond with Embrace Your Smile!!! You cannot go wrong with Dr. Gilbertson, Dr. LeCornu and Dr. Webber, they are absolutely amazing!

★★★★★

I may have been their oldest patient at 65 but I had always wanted to straighten my bottom teeth, so I went for it. After interviewing several orthodontists, I felt most comfortable with Dr. LeCornu. The staff is incredibly friendly, cheerful, positive, and competent. For two years, I felt I was in good hands with any staff member. I highly recommend her practice. She gave me a beautiful smile for my daughter’s wedding and a bottle of wine upon completion of my treatment!

★★★★★

Dr LeCornu and staff are beyond amazing. As soon as you walk in the door you feel feel welcome. I like to look at the Dr’s education and training….holy smokes impressive check it out!! Dr Megan recommended a retainer for my son because it wasn’t the best time for braces due to age and jaw growth. She has gotten his teeth to do amazing things with that retainer. He teeth are level and his bite is corrected. Best of all when it’s time for braces it will be a short time he has to have them. My son loves going the see everyone at the office from the front office to the back to get his retainer adjusted. I like that Dr LeCornu looks at each case individual and finds the best solution for that person not what puts more money in their pocket. Truly a exceptional office all around that puts its patients needs first. I highly recommend LeCornu orthodontic 10+

I had braces as a teenager but I didn’t wear my retainers so I was hesitant about going back into treatment as an adult. My uncle recently got the clear braces at Gilbertson and LeCornu Orthodontics and they look great! You can barely see them. I was sold. The first appointment to get the braces on took less than an hour. The entire process was so fast and simple. I would recommend Gilbertson and LeCornu Orthodontics to anyone who is interested in braces and having a beautiful smile.

★★★★★

Our family has been with Dr. Gilbertson and LeCornu for the past 6 years. Their office staff is a cut above the rest. They are friendly and good natured and eager to help you. My daughter always felt comfortable there. The technicians were equally as awesome! They are skilled and professional and got us in and out in a timely fashion. Finally, all 3 of the exceptional doctors helped to correct the many issues my daughter was having with her teeth. The end result is perfection! My dad even had his teeth corrected during our time with the office. It was fun to see both grandpa and granddaughter with braces on at the same time. And both of them look great thanks to Dr. Gilbertson and his amazing staff! The easiest 5 Star  review I’ve ever written!

Kari D. from Santa Clarita, CA (Source: Yelp)

★★★★★

Dr. Megan and her staff are amazing always giving you their attention at your appointment and wonderful bedside manner. EVERY visit at her office is a pleasant experience. My initial exam first visit was great she really took the time to point certain things out that I didn’t notice that she would be fixing. 8 months later and my braces are now off and I can honestly say I have not had one bad experience here. I am so happy with my beautiful teeth now and so thankful for being referred to this office! I would highly recommend dr. Megan and her staff to any friends and family!

★★★★★

After researching a few orthodontist around town, as well as a recommendation from a family friend, I made my decision to go with Dr. Gilbertson and Dr. LeCornu. Both Dr. Gilbertson and Dr. LeCornu made me feel confident and calm during the entire process. The staff is amazing, they are very friendly and outgoing. I have had nothing but a wonderful experience, and more importantly, my teeth are looking great!

Melissa T. from Santa Clarita, CA (Source: Yelp)

★★★★★

Both my children had great experiences with Dr. Gilbertson’s office.  When it came time for my teeth to receive some realigning, I was happy that Dr. Gilbertson and Dr. LeCornu were available.  Their entire staff is highly professional and they are wonderful at putting you at ease and making this experience enjoyable.  Our family dentist, Dr. Whitmer, with whom I have great respect, also highly recommends Dr. Gilbertson and Dr. LeCornu.  I strongly recommend this team…even if you are out of the area and looking for something you can count on!

★★★★★

Oh my gosh! Where do I start? My daughter can’t stop smiling. When we came to Dr Megan and the team, my daughter simple put was “shark mouth,” and lived in her shell, very meek and quiet. Her teeth and smile were a disaster, but we “embraced our smile,” and the process and 18 months later my daughter is a “new little girl.” She has confidence to smile and show off her teeth. Personality galore!!! Thank you so much. Words can’t express what you have done for her. So yes we highly recommend Embrace Your Smile. Love you all!

Taina V. from Near North Side, Chicago, IL (Source: Yelp)

★★★★★

My son has had a wonderful experience at Gilbertson and LeCornu. The attentiveness of all staff members has been a welcome response, especially when dealing with a child as young as 8. Any problems or concerns that arose throughout the year were immediately attended to: without hesitation. I truly appreciate the personal touch provided at every appointment!

★★★★★

First time having to go through the braces process for our oldest and I couldn’t be happier. Staff is alway friendly and the office runs like clockwork. Dr. LeCornu is thorough, patient and very knowledgeable. My son’s teeth are straight, the overbite is gone and are just beautiful. I would highly recommend Embrace Your Smile Orthodontics to everyone!

Dana P. from Oxnard, CA (Source: Yelp)

★★★★★

If you are looking for an orthodontist look no further. Dr. LeCornu, Dr. Gilbertson, and staff made having braces a positive experience. Dr. LeCornu really cares. She takes her time and is a perfectionist and that is a good thing. The office is always welcoming and friendly. I was a little hesitant to get braces, ok a lot hesitant. I’m over 50 and thought braces were for teenagers. After a consultation with Dr. LeCornu I felt confident it was the way to go. I am very glad I did. I am thrilled with the results and can’t thank Dr. Megan and staff enough for my new smile and their friendship.

Lauren McCartin Kobe (Source: Facebook)

★★★★★

My family has had a great experience with Dr. LeCornu’s office. As an adult who had braces as a teenager, I was hesitant about going through it again. I’m so glad I did. My daughter and I got our braces put on the same day:-) Everyone in the office is friendly, appointments run on time and I’m very happy with my post-braces smile.

I highly recommend this orthodontic office. Dr G and Dr Megan are top notch. You will not find better care than with these doctors. The staff is exceptional and very professional from the front office to the assistants at the back. They greet you with a smile and know all their patients’ names which makes you feel a part of a family! The office is super clean and that’s a big plus for me. Kudos to all of you!

★★★★★

If you’re looking for an AMAZING Orthodontist, Gilbertson & LeCornu are the ones to go to! Phenomenal office staff, caring doctors, really care about their patience, and def worth the price. Was not nickel and dimed at all! Both of our older kids have gone through the process of getting braces and was so simple and easy! Our youngest WILL be going there when he needs his 2 sets of braces. I even had a bite guard made for me to help sleep. Such a great staff that I can’t say enough good things about!

FIVE PEOPLE IN MY FAMILY NEED BRACES, and of all the choices in Santa Clarita Valley, we choose Embrace Your Smile Orthodontics. Dr. LeCornu is straightforward and professional and truly cares about each of her patients and her staff. She has super attention to detail and the price is right (her competitors all wanted to charge us more, and when you multiply that times five, well, you have your answer). We are so happy with the treatment AND the results and recommend anyone and everyone to Embrace Your Smile Orthodontics. We love everyone that works there, the front office staff, the staff in the back, and all of the orthodontists who make up this fantastic team, which is full of good vibes and GREAT SMILES!

★★★★★

We are so pleased with our daughter’s experience with Dr. Megan and the whole staff. The entire experience was worry-free, trouble-free, and we were impressed with the quality of work and the friendliness of the staff. Our appointments were quick and we were never kept waiting. Our daughter’s teeth look beautiful now! Neither my husband nor I needed braces growing up, so we had a lot of questions. We interviewed two local orthodontists, both recommended by our family dentist who we fully trust. Our first impressions at LeCornu Orthodontics were correct – this was the perfect place for our daughter’s treatment.

★★★★★

We absolutely LOVE Dr. Gilbertson and Dr. LeCornu! The office staff and employees are a lot of fun and so great to work with! The Doctors will discuss the best possible options for the patient in an easy going, relaxing setting and are great at answering questions about treatment options, payment and insurance. We are so pleased with our three daughters orthodontic work and their beautiful smiles! We have one more daughter to go for braces and we will definitely use them again! We recommend them to everyone!

I want to express my sincere “Thanks” to Dr. Le Cornu and staff for a top notch practice. Dr. Le Cornu is an expert, professional, and performs with a spirit of excellence. She takes the time to provide details of the procedure and throughout the treatment is very informative, enthusiastic, and aims to go above and beyond the call of duty as it relates to the finality of the treatment. She also has expertise with children that have special needs. She uses her critical thinking skills to develop a strategy to meet the objective of providing children and adults with great straight teeth. Kudos for such a terrific doctor. I must also mention the staff at the front desk – they are phenomenal, always polite, understanding, and most important when it pertains to appointments, extremely accommodating. Billing is accurate and request are handled immediately. An optimal functioning team of professionals. One last note, the dental technicians are superb as well. They work diligently following Dr. LeCornu’s direction to make the necessary hardware changes, upgrades, etc. Another incredible fluid team. For anyone looking for Orthodontic care, please give them a call, they provide impeccable customer service.

As an adult getting braces I was hesitant, afraid that I’d be spending my time with children when I went for my monthly visits. Couldn’t be more surprised to see how many adults now have braces. And this is the place to have them done. Knowledgeable, experienced, friendly, fun. This is the best staff and doctors. Can’t recommend them highly enough. Not a single bad experience. They told me it would take one year, and they beat us by one day. 364 days later and my smile is AMAZING.

★★★★★

Dr. Megan, Claudia, and the entire staff at LeCornu Orthodontics are the best! My daughter has special needs and they made the process so easy. Everyone there is so kind and caring. I highly recommend Dr. Megan LeCornu and her team!

Marsii D. from Santa Clarita, CA (Source: Yelp)

★★★★★

I can’t say enough about Dr. LeCornu and her team. She was able to manage my daughter’s extremely complicated orthodontic case which included double jaw surgery (which was done by an oral surgeon). Her staff is friendly and competent. We have never waited for any extended period of time and getting appointments …even emergency appointments, has always been easy. I can’t commend Dr. LeCornu enough for her personalized and empathetic care of my children. Fair prices, excellent service, AND top notch care.

Dr. Gilbertson and Dr Megan and their staff are absolutely wonderful. As a parent, it’s always a gift to find teachers, doctors, coaches, etc who will care for your children in an over the top way. From day one I felt that everyone in this office from the front desk to the doctors were 100% committed to making the best decisions for my two children. They are welcoming, patient, understanding and made my children feel like they were part of the process of this new and sometimes scary time. My daughter’s treatment went exactly as promised and she got her braces off yesterday. I couldn’t be happier with the results and she was very cared for through the whole process. My son has sensory issues and was terrified of getting braces. For the first time in a scary situation the doctors and staff made him feel in control, educated and prepared for what would happen each step of the way. I couldn’t believe how successful they were at making him feel at ease and he got his braces on and felt cared for and the whole experience helped him conquer some fears and issues! I can’t say enough good things about this orthodontist office.

I have referred many patients to Gilbertson and Lecornu Orthodontics and expectations are always highly exceeded. This team operates in such excellence, specializing in advanced personalized care. They utilize the most recent and state of the art technologies to provide the best care, and their results show it! One of my favorite characteristics of this office is the consistency to stay involved. Their community involvement is like no other orthodontic office in Santa Clarita. I trust them to take care of my family, and highly recommend them to anyone looking for an Orthodontic office in the SCV. You won’t be disappointed!

My teeth were so crooked, that it was becoming a hazard to people’s eyes! Fortunately, I found Gilbertson and LeCornu Orthodontics! Since I am slightly older and my insurance considers it cosmetic, I got quotes from different places and I found that this orthodontist was the best deal for my buck. Not only that, the entire staff made the process simple, clear, and an exciting journey as my teeth became less of a hazard. I am recommending my siblings to get their treatment here and so should you! P.S. For a faster treatment: Always wear your rubberbands

This practice was recommended to me by many people within Santa Clarita and after the first visit I immediately knew why. The staff and doctors are very courteous, professional, and insightful. I put off braces in my teens and was regretting it as an adult. After seeing the great results of a friend who had recently finished treatment at this office I figured a consult could not hurt. From the moment I stepped in and went through the consultation I felt comfortable, and relaxed, they did not try to push me into starting on the spot and explained all my options. Dr. LeCornu put me at ease by going over the details of my treatment and answered (and continues to answer) any questions that pop into my head. I would gladly recommend this office to anyone who is looking into improving their smile.

I just got my braces off! I would highly recommend Embrace Your Smile. The staff was inviting, personable and caring from the moment I walked in the door. I am very pleased with the results and would highly recommend them hands down.

★★★★★

I have been extremely happy with this office. They are always professional and polite. They have done a fantastic job with both of my girls orthodontic needs. I feel they are priced very reasonable compared to other offices and the quality of work they perform is way beyond what you pay. I would recommend this office to kids and adults that have orthodontic needs. My girls both enjoy coming to the orthodontist as they feel welcomed, cared for and the staff is exceptional to them. We are very happy that we were referred to this office.

A WORD FROM YOUR DOCTOR

Although Dr. Megan LeCornu has lived in many cities, she feels like Santa Clarita has always been home. “Santa Clarita is such a family-friendly city, and I love the variety of outdoor activities and how involved everyone is in their community,” she says. Dr. LeCornu knew that she wanted to have a positive impact on people’s quality of life from a young age. Her positive experience with her own orthodontic treatment when she was a teenager propelled her towards orthodontics as a career. She enjoyed the increased confidence that she gained after her orthodontic treatment transformed her life, and she felt strongly that she wanted to offer the same life-changing care to people one day. A Colorado native, Dr. LeCornu attended the University of Denver. While there, she earned her Bachelor of Science degree in Molecular Biology and Biochemistry while minoring in Psychology. She then went on to the prestigious Harvard School of Dentistry, where she received her Doctor of Dental Medicine degree. Afterwards, she was accepted into one of the top orthodontic programs in the country, The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, where she completed a three-year orthodontic residency and graduated with her Master’s in Orthodontics. After practicing orthodontics for a time in California, Dr. LeCornu met Dr. Steven Gilbertson of Santa Clarita, CA. Dr. Gilbertson was ready to take on a partner, and she has been practicing with him since May, 2014. A Diplomate of the American Board of Orthodontics, Dr. LeCornu is one of only 25% of orthodontists in the nation to be board-certified. Dr. LeCornu is one of only six-board certified orthodontists in the Santa Clarita Valley, and the only female board-certified orthodontist in the area. Dr. LeCornu is a member of the American Association of Orthodontists, the American Dental Association, the Pacific Coast Society of Orthodontists, the California Dental Association, and the San Fernando Dental Society. She has multiple publications in peer-reviewed journals, and she lectures and presents cases to students, as well at continuing education meetings. In addition to spending time with her family and friends, Dr. Megan loves the outdoors and enjoys living in sunny California where she can enjoy the outdoors all year! In her free time you can find her snowboarding at Mammoth Mountain in the winter, going to the beaches and paddleboarding in the summer. She loves camping and is always up for a new adventure. She is always looking for travel tips from her patients! Dr. Megan has 2 dogs, a golden retriever named Winnie and a golden-shepherd mix named Teddy. You may find her on the hiking trails with her 2 dogs in Santa Clarita and the local trails!
