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

Lynda C. from Chandler, AZ (Source: Yelp)


I was referred to E & S Orthodontics by my sister. I’m glad I brought my 2 daughter’s here today.  Dr. Saavedra and his staff were very professional! They took the time to get to know the girls before they started examining their teeth.  Dr. Saavedra explained all the x-rays to me and answered all my questions. When it came down to the payment plans his staff was more than willing to help us with a payment plan that worked for us. I did not feel rushed into anything and I really like that about this office. I felt like Dr. Saavedra is a honest man, he told me that only 1 of my daughter’s needed braces at this time. The staff took the time to explain the procedure to both my daughter and myself, usually they are scared about going/leaving the dental office but today they had nothing but  positive things to say about the office. I really like how the office has reward points for their patients. Anytime the kids bring a good report card from school, have clean braces/teeth on their visit, they get reward points in exchange for gift cards to: Claire’s, Macy’s, Wal Mart, Best Buy, etc.. We also like how we were told that in October, the Dr’s in the office are going to have a little carnival (super hero theme) for the patients at their Peoria office, as a thank you.

After several orthodontic consultations across the valley I  decided to go with E and S Ortho. I have been so pleased with my decision since the start. My treatment plan here was unlike any other I had been proposed, including a distilizer to correct my bite on one side. They really focus on the big picture down to every detail that affects a healthy smile, not just a cookie cutter approach to straight teeth. The offices are always clean and managed very well. Staff is all friendly and communicates effectively. They were very flexible and helped me out in a jam when a hygienist from another dentist office decided last minute that my wires needed to be removed for a cleaning that I asked about prior to my appointment.  Overall I have been extremely satisfied with my choice to come here for treatment! My 16 year old daughter is now in braces with me here. Thank you all sooo much!!

E&S orthodontics Peoria office is amazing! All of the staff are friendly, and welcoming. They were able to accommodate my crazy schedule With appointments that were convenient for me. All of my concerns were addressed by the staff and doctors, it was nice to feel informed of my treatment each step of the way. The staff made my visits comfortable from day one. Cherish did my removal and she was so gentle, she took my concerns/dental fears to heart. It is such a comfort to have someone provide a service such as this with a genuine concern for their patients. It’s nice to have an office with a staff that really care about their patients and you can tell this is a great place beginning with the welcome from the from desk, the treatment there is top notch all around! Highly recommend!!

My 11yo son had been growing more self-conscious of a tooth that came in high & crooked, so after moving to AZ we researched an orthodontist – reviews led us to E & S Orthodontics! Sure enough, my son needed upper braces. From the moment we walked in the office we felt like we were part of this big family!  From the financial lady, to the assistants that helped place his braces, to both doctors, they’re all very kind and enthusiastic people who seek to be a genuine help.  Even when my son had to go in because of a brace that came loose, they noticed an area sticking out improperly and fixed it for him. My son said it felt much better and was glad they noticed it….having never had braces in our family, no one knew it wasn’t supposed to be “uncomfortable” in the back of his mouth! LOL! We look forward to the road ahead – though it’ll be a long process, we’re thankful to be able to do it with the doctors and staff at E & S Orthodontics!

It’s with a heavy heart to know we won’t be seeing the E&S family as much because today my son is getting his braces OFF. Wow, what a fantastic ride this has been. The staff, the Dr’s, the entire experience has been the best. I was referred to E&S from a friend who wholeheartedly loved them and I knew E&S was the right home for my son. The staff educated my son how to handle each adjustment for pain management, etc. Never did we feel pressured to buy something today when getting his braces off but instead we were given options to ensure we walk out happy for a lifetime. I can honestly say my son’s teeth look perfect and he will forever smile with confidence. Thank you E&S for the great patient care and also for always thinking of your patients by hosting carinvals, etc.

Mary K. from Peoria, AZ (Source: Yelp)


We are using E&S for all 3 of our children.  Anytime I have a question related to the treatment plan, the orthodontists answer all my questions and never make me feel rushed!  The technicians are all very knowledgeable and obviously well trained.  They keep the office clean and sanitary.  If we need to get in for a poking wire, we have been offered a same day appointment and they have gone above and beyond to accommodate my work schedule.  As far as cost, I found them very competitive with local quotes.  Finally, having 3 kids in treatment at once is a lot financially as well as time-wise.  The payment plans are very reasonable and they let me keep the kids on the same appointment schedule.

Susan K. from Surprise, AZ (Source: Yelp)


E & S Orthodontics is The Best!  My dentist recommended them for my daughter.  After my daughter started under their care approximately 2 years ago, I also decided to fix my smile with them.  Everyone at E & S Orthodontics is friendly and very customer oriented, it is easy to see that they enjoy assisting their customers and working as a team.  As a busy person, I appreciate how smooth their office operates, and they made the entire process as simple and easy as it can be for me.  Thank you  Dr. Saavedra!

I began my relationship with E&S Orthodontics a little over a year ago. As a middle aged man, I was having some breathing issues due to the recession of my mandible (jaw) and the inward turning of my teeth which was preventing my tongue from having a proper home in my mouth. I researched a variety of ways to remedy my breathing issue and finally settled on the idea of orthodontic correction. I then researched orthodontists fluent in teeth and mouth related sleep apnea and discovered that  E&S was such an expert. I met with him in consultation. His expertise and comfort level with my medical condition was very evident. I also found him to have an excellent bedside manner, especially with regard to empathy for his patient. After an hour long consultation, i knew that I had found the proper orthodontist to help me. I was then introduced to the office in general and to the orthodontic tech that would work with me. First, let me describe the office itself. It is a high energy environment. As you walk in, multiple staff make eye contact with you and greet you on behalf of E&S Orthodontics. There is a general sense that permeates the place that everyone there is concerned about the patients of E&S and want to deliver outstanding service and results. And finally, I want to share about the orthodontic tech that I was blessed with. Her name is Yvonne. . At every single visit with her (and I had over a dozen), she would ease my fears ( I had a phobia about gagging while having dental work done), make me laugh, and then work with such precision and skill that complex maneuvers inside my mouth would happen with great ease. With , . Now as to my breathing problems, I noticed a dramatic improvement in symptoms a few months after the braces were installed and that benefit has remained now that my braces have been removed. I need to add that along the way, I also ended up with an amazing smile(!) As a medical doctor, I have witnessed and personally delivered medical care for the last 25 years. I know when I see compassionate, extraordinary care. But what I witnessed and experienced at E&S orthodontics was something I had never seen: A large team of individuals unified in a mission to deliver outstanding, compassionate orthodontic care. If you reside in the Valley( or even beyond) and want an amazing experience with outstanding results, you simply must go see the amazing professionals of E&S Orthodontics

The staff is always friendly and welcoming. They know everyone by name and answer all questions and/or address any concerns. They also make sure you understand what’s happening during your ortho. The doctors are always available and checking for perfection. I am more than satisfied with my experience and more happy with the results of my teeth! The best part is the fresh baked cookies every visit! Thank you team for making this easy for me.

Julie L. from Peoria, AZ (Source: Yelp)


All three of my kids had their teeth straightened with E and S and we could not be happier with the results. The office staff makes you feel welcome and comfortable and the assistants do a great job connecting with the kids. My advise is: get the retainer insurance!  I was just in again with my 17 year old who lost his. Again. Thank goodness I have the insurance

Chad V. from Glendale, AZ (Source: Yelp)


Got braces off today!! No pain!! The staff did a great job. They always make my experience pleasant and professional. Being that I’m an older patient I had concerns when I first started my ortho plan. But the staff has been great, supportive and very professional and what they do. I would recommend E&S orthodontics to anybody looking for work on their mouth. Thank you you guys are the best!!

E & S has been super AMAZING to our family in the past few months. they  made sure we were safe, with all our medical history and concerns as Andrew got his braces on yesterday. They worked carefully and with constant care. Justin noticed that an adjustment needed to be made, for comfort, and took care of a situation that had potential to escalate into a medical issue. We were so grateful, and so far, day 2 of braces is cruising along well. THANK YOU everyone! Sonja, we appreciate your GENUINE well wishes as we left, yesterday, too! We appreciate you all! **The Pearson Family

Juliet B. from Surprise, AZ (Source: Yelp)


I have never encountered a team like E&S Orthodontics that displays such a compassionate and caring attitude to all of their clients. My family is always greeted with warm smiles and friendly hellos. The doctors and their assistants provide careful and thorough examinations, and even when my son hasn’t brushed, are gentle with their encouragements. I have never left the office without a laugh or two with the front office while they work to find an appointment flexible to my busy work schedule. On top of E&S’s top notch in-office professionalism, they go above and beyond celebrating their clients with events like their annual Fall Festival… and still remember the community by organizing food drives and inviting the Salvation Army to their events to collect donations. To say that I am a huge fan of E&S Orthodontics is an understatement. I feel lucky to have found such an amazing group of human beings to care for my children’s orthodontic needs Side note: they offer fresh baked cookies, and, via a kuerig dispenser – coffee, tea or cocoa in their waiting area to their clients and their families. 🙂

Jeffrey F. from Peoria, AZ (Source: Yelp)


I brought my daughter to E & S through a referral.  After meeting with the Dr. I was impressed with the whole company.  I interviewed a few places and decided to go with them  6 months later my daughter is now more social and smiles all the time, even with the braces.  This experience has transformed my daughters life.  Before the braces my daughter was very quiet and thought she had a ugly smile.  She is now more outgoing and smiley and I am so happy she is happy.  I would highly recommend E & S and their staff.

Anita N. from Avondale, AZ (Source: Yelp)


I cannot say enough good things about this place. The staff is incredible. Being in my 30s and getting braces (again) I definitely had a lot of questions, concerns and reservations but Dr. Savaadra was so knowledgeable, he took the time to dive into my xrays, explain why my jaw sits a certain way and the differences with each option presented. They definitely give you all the pros and cons of everything you want to allow you to make the best decision for what you need. I also love that they really work with you financially, don’t pull credit and I was able to make affordable payments so I can get this done and on my way to actually smiling again. They go out of their way to accommodate you the best they can and make you comfortable from step 1, it was something I really appreciate and won’t forget. Shari is a superstar at the front desk, she’s like the Mom of the office and I love how caring she is with every single person who comes in. And a bonus they have delicious soft cookies, fresh baked in the office every day! So far I’m about 2months in with my braces and it’s been going great. The Damon braces they have now are a million times better than the ones I had 5years ago, less painful, quicker to put on and better to adjust each time I come in. I’d definitely recommend this place, the outside of the building doesn’t look like much but you’ll be pleasantly surprised when you walk inside how clean and modern everything is.

Omar K. from Chandler, AZ (Source: Yelp)


E&S Orthodontics is easily one of the best Orthodontic practices I’ve ever been to. I’ve never been to any sort of medical practice that feels like home, takes the time to know who I am, and build a personal relationship over time. Any other practice I’ve been to feels so impersonal and like a business transaction only.  Dr. S provide excellent care and not only focus on your teeth, but your face as a whole. I went through a long process with braces even having to use a herbst appliance but if you follow everything they tell you to do you will not be disappointed. I love my smile. I had an overbite and a crossbite and was self-conscious about my smile. I wouldn’t have the confidence I have now without them! Thank you E&S Orthodontics!

Megi Bashi (Source: Google)


Coming to E& S orthodontist has been the best decision I have ever made. First of all everyone is super friendly and personable, waiting for their patients with big smiles in their faces. The most important part is the professionalism and great expertise of Dr. Saavedra. I had braces before and my previous orthodontist messed up saying I need surgery. I was devastated and hopeless, then after seeing Dr. Saavedra he took ownership and told me with confidence that he can handle my case. The treatment finished on time and my teeth are straight and I can bite. My cross bite was fixed and no surgery needed. I am super happy to achieve my results and get the perfect smile. I am grateful and I would recommend everyone to get their braces here for peace of mind.

Blake C. from San Jose, CA (Source: Yelp)


I came to this location to have a new retainer made after my old one broke and am very impressed with my service. The new retainer was ready within a week, and one of the front front metal pieces broke soon after I got the retainer they replaced it quickly and without issue. They also worked to accommodate my schedule, and I was never waiting long at all for my appointments. Berta is the tech who worked with me throughout the process and I found her very helpful and friendly. She was able to answer all of my questions, and even adjusted my old retainer free of charge- the old retainer had been bothering me for a few years and she fixed it for me during my appointment which I really appreciate. I would definitely recommend this location for any orthodontics related problems/ services

Marianne C. from Phoenix, AZ (Source: Yelp)


E & S Orthodontics really made my braces experience amazing. It’s such an interactive, fun, and light-hearted office that you hardly feel like you’re visiting a doctor. The visits are always quick and informative, and if I ever had any questions or concerns I would always leave with them answered! I had braces for 2 and a half years, and now my teeth are absolutely perfect. I’ve had them off for about 2 years now, and they haven’t moved back even slightly. I really am impressed with the outcome of my teeth, and I’m so happy I decided on this orthodontics company!

You cannot go wrong with E&S! Being in the dental field previously it is so refreshing to see such conservative dentistry. My daughters treatment plan with other orthodontists was pulling teeth and palate expanders. We were able to treat her with just brackets. The wait times are always good. All of the staff is absolutely amazing from the second you walk in the office to the assistants and Drs. They treat everyone like family here. We are especially thankful for Cherish’s constant smile and patience. Choose E&S and you will not regret it!

I have been going here for about two years. I’ve had a set of braces twice in my life and I can say this location was better than my last. They are so friendly once you step in. There’s a coffee and cookie table you’re welcome to grab and free cold water bottles. My teeth have been a huge insecurity for me in my life but they made me feel so welcome and like I had the best smile. All the orthodontists are so friendly but I would have to say Cherish is the best. I notice during a few of my visits if an orthodontist assigned to me has a bit of a struggle, they call for her. She’s so friendly, warm hearted and knows what she’s doing. Every time I get her I automatically feel happy because I know my visit will be painless and fast. She’s passionate about her job and I love her !!!!!

I LOVE E&S Orthodontics Peoria location! Dr. Saavedra and all his staff are knowledgeable, kind, caring, patient and a fun office. They are not your typical Orthodontic office. They not only treat children but adults too. There are a lot of activities to be involved with not just braces. They have a fall Festival that was my favorite. The theme was Willy Wonka. I dressed up as an Oomph Loompa. The kids and adults had so much fun as a family. There were food trucks, bouncy castles and so much more!! I would definitely recommend this office, you will not be disappointed!! Go there and become part of the brace face club! Braces can be fun and when you are done, you will have a beautiful smile!!

Mason W. from Peoria, AZ (Source: Yelp)


 Dr. S are amazing and such talented doctors. Although this was my second treatment through E&S (parents and kids, make sure you wear your retainers) it was as delightful and quick as the first time around. From the beginning of my treatment, the doctors and assistants were helpful, happy, and made me feel like getting braces wasn’t so horrible (both my first and second time)! The treatment was quick and my time spent with such an amazing team was well worth it. Plus, I have an amazing smile to show off! I highly recommend E&S Orthodontics and whether you’re looking for braces or eyeing the potential of pretty teeth, take a visit and check them out!!

Michael S. from Surprise, AZ (Source: Yelp)


A+ Orthodontist! The most professional and knowledgeable doctors in the valley! , Dr Saavedra and the entire staff are fun, hip and they focus on results! The office has all the modern, computerized equipment as well as a very well trained staff. Not once did I feel uncomfortable or fearful of the procedures at hand. I would recommend E & S orthodontics to anyone! I am so happy with the results! Literally life changing for me!

Bea C. from Avondale, AZ (Source: Yelp)


After meeting with 6 other practices, when i decided to correct my smile, I chose E & S Orthodontics. After my consultation it was clear that they truly had a passion for smiles and their patients. I have now been with E & S Orthodontics for two years and am completely satisfied. They have always gone above and beyond to meet my scheduling needs and address my concerns. If you are looking for the the latest technology in orthodontic dentistry and great service, E & S Orthodontics is the place. I love them so much my son & niece also have braces at with this practice. In the future I will continue to go to them for all of my families Orthodontic needs. Thank you E & S, you guys ROCK!

Michelle S. from Phoenix, AZ (Source: Yelp)


This place is amazing! The staff always remembers us when we walk in and treat us like family. They provide coffee, tea, and cookies in the lobby. They have video games for kids waiting and free WiFi. Their work is amazing and have made my son’s crowded mouth and crooked teeth perfectly straight. My son was an unwilling participant in his braces, but they come off today. The changes in his smile and confidence are evident and speak towards the work this office does. They provide incentives to kids to keep up their care at home. My youngest son still has quite a few years to go, but he’s excited for the changes to come. Thank you E&S

I was NOT happy that I had to have braces as an adult! I never thought my teeth were terrible, but at 52 I finally had to deal with a baby tooth I had never lost. The best option was to replace it with an implant, but there was not room in my smile for an implant due to the small size of the baby tooth. It took about 14 months to move my teeth enough to make room for the implant, but that’s not all . He artistically shaped and created the most beautiful smile I could have ever imagined. I feel like I look better now than I did before any of the dental work. See for yourself – the first photo is 8 years old, the second was taken in February 2019! I highly recommend E & S. You will always feel welcome and expertly cared for.

I brought in my son for a consult today, everything from the beginning to the end has been very easy with no issues. The staff is friendly and caring when it comes to concerns you may have. The orthodontist was very thorough and ensured I understood everything that was needed for my son. The end result was that my son had to get braces and he was able to get them the same day. Typically my son has a bit of anxiety do to previous dentists but the staff made him feel very comfortable and at ease. I highly recommend this office.

Sherri M. from Phoenix, AZ (Source: Yelp)


Love this office!  My daughter has been coming here for the last couple of years and has appreciated the kind staff and fun events this practice offers.  They frequently have fun events for patients and their families, fall carnival, Jump, Street parties, prize drawings, etc. they have a point system to reward patients for good oral hygiene, being on time to appointments, and keeping their braces in good order. They also specialize in orthodontic care without pulling teeth. . . a big plus for us, since our previous orthodontist wanted to pull eight teeth. My daughter’s braces are now off, and she is continuing with a retainer, and excellent care to complete her treatment.  I would gladly recommend this practice to anyone seeking orthodontic treatment.

Jennifer R. from Peoria, AZ (Source: Yelp)


This is a great office for kids, teens and adults alike. I was referred to E&S by my general dentist and have been very pleased with the overall experience. The office is clean and modern, the staff is  friendly   Dr. Saavedra are excellent doctors. There have been a couple of times when I needed adjustments and each time they were able to accommodate me the same day. I also appreciate that they worked with me to make my treatment affordable. I have friends with kids and confidently refer them to E&S because I know they will be treated well.

I came in 2 years ago so embarrassed about my smile. All my life I have been afraid of the dentist and orthodontist. The Doctors and staff were so kind and made me feel so comfortable that I got the braces on that day. Every time I came in for an appointment they made the experience so nice. I was relaxed and not nervous. Here we are 2 years later. I don’t have to be embarrassed anymore. Braces are off… I couldn’t me more happier. I love my new smile. I couldn’t thank you all enough. Go see them they will change your life.

Ruth Mare (Source: Google)


I chose E & S Orthodontics based on a referral from a friend, and I have never been sorry. Both doctors are cordial and friendly, professional, and answered any and all questions I had. The assistants are top notch. I worked mostly with Berta and she is a god send. Also, when I called between appointments with questions or concerns, my phone calls were returned promptly and the issue resolved quickly. My braces are now off but they continue to work with me to be certain that I keep that smile I wished for. If you want the best orthodontic care possible, E & S is the place to go.

Melissa P. from Goodyear, AZ (Source: Yelp)


My daughter had her braces put on at the end of February 2020, right before the pandemic broke out. While the process to get her established as a patient was seamless, the team at E & S Orthodontics has not missed a beat since we began. Precautions are followed to ensure the safety of patients and staff, but I am amazed at how well the team has made this quick transition. My daughter actually looks forward to appointments because the staff is so friendly! Reaching the office is easy and I always get an immediate and accurate response. We have not had any issues regarding her care. I cannot say enough about how happy we are with E & S Orthodontics!

Paul Kaufman (Source: Google)


From the very first visit I was WOWED!! I have never had braces as a child, then my fiance comes home and tells me her son needs braces. I had a lot of questions and was not sure where to start. We set up an appointment with E & S Orthodontics base off the recommendation of our Dentist. When we made the initial call to the office it was quick and simple and they were able to get us in right away. The staff is so friendly and attentive. I was blown away by the exam. If you are the type of person who need pictures to understand or maybe layman terms  his assistant Rebecka give you everything you need to understand the why, the what and the how. Harrison was able to have his braces placed the very next day and he never once complained. The Damon Braces really make it easy for him to brush and care for his teeth. Then 14 months later the braces are off and he looks fantastic! Dr.Saavedra,  the entire Team at E & S Orthodontics made braces easy and fun for the entire family! I am now thinking of doing treatment for myself!

I was referred to E&S by my dentist because my son and daughter needed braces. The doctors are great! The staff is better. They are very helpful and accommodating to everyone. When needing an emergency appointment they have you just come in right away and fit you in where they can. My kids love that they have two waiting rooms with video games while they wait. They have a rewards system to encourage kids to be on time, good brushing habits, and following instructions from the previous appointments. They also have a drawing once a month with great giveaways.
