PATIENT REVIEWS

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

Dayna W. from Deerfield, IL (Source: Yelp)

★★★★★

I have been a patient of Graber orthodontics since 1992. I had a lot of issues with my jaw along with braces. The entire staff at their office was amazing and made me feel so comfortable every time I came in. Fast forward and I am now bringing all of my kids there. Dr. Katie takes her time with each and every one of my kids. Everyone in the office is so friendly, professional and caring. They have a game plan and stick to it. I wouldn’t go to anyone else. They also opened up another office!

Graber and Gyllenhaal Orthodontics provided first class service for me and I would highly recommend them. I am a 40 something guy that decided to correct some issues via Invisalign. Dr. Graber and her staff gave me wonderful results and made me feel like a VIP in every aspect of the process. Both of our children will be heading their way soon. After the amazing care I received, I would not trust their smiles to anyone else!

Dr.s Katie, Kelley, and Lee are all fantastic! All extremely knowledgeable and friendly. My experience was great and would recommend them to everyone. The staff is really friendly helpful and very flexible with making appointments around my busy schedule. It was truly a 5 star experience.

★★★★★

Graber Orthodontics has been a life-saver for us! After wasting tons of time and money and painful visits on another orthodontist who was closer to our home (we live in Grayslake), our family dentist strongly encouraged us to see Dr. Graber. Best advice we’ve ever received. Our previous orthodontist, after over a year of no progress with our daughter’s teeth, was recommending we have some of her permanent teeth pulled and resign ourselves to implants. She was only 14 at the time! Dr. Graber did a full evaluation and showed us exactly how he would approach treatment for our daughter. We ended up switching to his practice and could not be more pleased with the progress thus far. Of the two teeth the “other guy” said would not move, one is happily in place and the other is coming in slowly but surely. Not only that, but she leaves her appointments at Graber with a smile on her face instead of with tears of pain streaming down her cheeks like she did after her visits with “the other guy”. The office staff at Graber are always friendly, welcoming and professional and the doctors are all very approachable, positive and KNOWLEDGEABLE! There is no substitute for their combined level of experience and expertise. My only regret is that we did not start with Graber Orthodontics to begin with. I cannot say enough good things about our positive experiences there. HIGHLY recommended!

Love Dr. Katie and her team! From the initial greeting, the checking of my teeth with invisalign, to the rebooking of my next appointment everything is always amazing! Everyone is so professional, knowledgeable and friendly! I always look forward to my next appointment!

L R. from Mundelein, IL (Source: Yelp)

★★★★★

I am an adult patient who just finished a 20 month process to address several bite issues. This was done with Invisalign (vs metal braces). I primarily worked with Dr Kelley Gyllenhaal & Dr Katie Graber — both are fantastic. Every time I had a final tweak, they did not get impatient, they double checked my concerns and worked to get the tweaks done to my satisfaction. They have state-of-the-art equipment and a comfortable, super clean (even before COVID-19) facility. I can’t say enough positive things about the work they did and the miracle of Invisalign.

Yvonne G. from Chicago, IL (Source: Yelp)

★★★★★

Facility and instruments are state of the art. Dr. Katie is knowledgeable, direct, and caring. She is great at communicating expectations directly to the kids, and makes sure everyone understands the plan. Office staff is friendly and efficient. When you invest this much time and money, this is the experience you want. Go here.

★★★★★

Both of my teenage boys went to Graber Orthodontics for their orthodontia treatment. My oldest has a craniofacial syndrome, so he is a challenge to say the least. Dr. Graber and his Staff did an amazing job communicating with Peter’s surgical team, organizing his treatment, and providing the highest-quality care. My younger son is about halfway through his treatment and is receiving the same excellent care and attention. We couldn’t be happier, and I highly recommend Graber Orthodontics to all of our friends.

★★★★★

I love coming here, they are truly the best orthodontists around! The whole entire staff are so friendly and professional. I have to bring my 2 year every appointment and they always have something to entertain her, either coloring books and crayons or movies while she sits in the chair right next to me. My daughter asks to go to the orthodontist all the time now. I’m just blown away about how amazing the customer service is from each and every person you encounter there. I see Dr. Katie Graber and she is very knowledgeable and explains every step along the way with my Invisalign’s. I’m very happy with the progress and I can’t wait to see my new smile! Graber Orthodontics is the only place I will ever go and it’s the only place you should ever go too. I promise you will not be disappointed!!!

Jennifer L. from St. Petersburg, FL (Source: Yelp)

★★★★★

Graber Orthodontics is the place to go for all things Orthodontia. They’ve got it all! Orthodontics is a L-O-N-G process, and you can end up going for years, depending on what’s needed, so it’s really important that you find someone you can trust – well Graber’s is it! From the moment you walk in the door, you can see that everything is first class. You can check yourself in via the computer on the wall, and then have a seat in the nice, bright, waiting area. Help yourself to some coffee and magazines and hang out. The doctors themselves are very friendly. We absolutely adore Katie as she’s just SO sweet, and very personable (we usually end up seeing her, so are more familiar with her). The doctors are great at keeping you informed of your status, and what needs to happen next, and when you need to come back and why. They are both VERY well educated and smart. This is key, because knowing that you have a doctor who knows what they’re doing makes you feel comfortable, and like you can trust what they’re doing without question. I have this feeling with these doctors. They’ve got a wonderful billing lady who sits down with you and goes over your payment options, and how they break out a payment plan if needed, etc. They’re really helpful with figuring out the cost up front so you know what to expect. The location itself is very nicely appointed and comfortable. They’ve got a cute little game area for kids who have to wait with some type of gaming system (Wii?? PS3? Something of the sort). The ladies at the front desk are usually pretty kind and helpful. There”s a little area to clean your teeth if you forgot to before-hand. There’s also a few private rooms to go into and talk to the doctors. They’ve also got an online “experience” that you can utilize once your’e setup. I can’t express enough my satisfaction with the Grabers. They’re a father/daughter team and they know what they’re doing. I highly recommend them. Between their expert use of the most up-to-date technology (for both teeth and for administration), and their fabulous bedside manner – I wouldn’t go anywhere else.

Dr. Graber, you haven’t seen me in 25 years. I was 14 at your office at the Hollister building in Libertyville when we first started. I had full braces and you and your staff were so memorable, especially Cheryl. Every dentist I have ever seen gives me so many compliments for “perfect teeth”! I have you to thank and I am so glad to see you are doing well. So many great memories!

★★★★★

Our son has been a patient of Graber Orthodontics. He had a very challenging situation with a lower eye tooth that was completely out of position. Dr Graber explained our choices, made a recommendation and we couldn’t be happier with the results!! They are highly skilled professionals who care for you as if you were family. The office is very efficient and the staff is wonderful as well. If you are looking for quality care at a fair price, I don’t think you can find better!

Khrystal L. from Mundelein, IL (Source: Yelp)

★★★★★

After the other guy extracted my teeth, I decided to go for a second opinion. Had I known Mr. Graber previously, I would have gone to him right off the bat. He had x-rays and pics taken, then sat me down for an hour and had a long talk with me. He and his staff were very professional. He told he had I come to him first, he would have used an expansion method on me instead of extractions. He told me it was possible in my case. His office was just the right size, and the atmosphere was cozy. It didn’t seem like a gymnasium filled with people. State of the art orthodontist.

Josh R. from Chicago, IL (Source: Yelp)

★★★★★

I knew I was going to have a positive experience at Graber Orthodontics as soon as I walked in the door and saw a personalized sign welcoming myself and other new patients to the office! The entire staff was very friendly and professional and made a point to introduce themselves no matter how busy they were during my tour of their facility. The office itself is quite impressive with several nice features such as an area to brush your teeth should you have forgotten to beforehand and a game room to keep the kids entertained during your visit. Dr. Katie spent a considerable time with me going over possible treatment plans and together we came up with one that I was very pleased with. Overall, I was blown away by the wonderful experience I had there and would recommend Team Graber to anyone seeking orthodontic care. They are the industry’s best and brightest.

Amy S. from Riverwoods, IL (Source: Yelp)

★★★★★

Both of their offices have always been so clean. I completely trust their hygienic practices before COVID and after. Their office staff is so helpful and patient. And every doctor is awesome….you can tell they’re experts in the field by the way they explain treatment plans and options. We have two kids and have never felt pressured to select one treatment over another. (It took me longer to decide about one of my children, and they didn’t rush me.) Their business is run with honesty and care.

Krystal T.  from Columbus, OH (Source: Yelp)

★★★★★

I got braces with Dr. Gyllenhaal.  She was kind, personable, and gentle.  I shopped around before settling on her as my orthodontists, and I’m glad that I did. I really appreciated how gentle she was with my sensitive mouth, and that she was more than willing to change bands/ brackets when I chomped an apple the wrong way or stained my bands with sipping tea.  There was never any judgment, just patient willingness to help me get patched up and on my way.  She comes highly recommended ^_^

Meg M. from Glenview, IL (Source: Yelp)

★★★★★

I highly recommend!!!! Their expertise, professionalism and genuine concern were exemplary. Completing a year+ course of invisilines, my smile is back! As a 68 year old, my teeth were shifting…they were able to repair everything. I am thrilled with the results and feel like a made lots of new friends in the process!!!!!

Lindsey Lieberman (Source: Google)

★★★★★

Dr. Katie is absolutely incredible to work with. Not only does she explain her work in clear terms that a non-professional can understand, she gets to the level of your child and speaks to them. She asks your child if they have any questions. I couldn’t ask for a more patient orthodontist!

Marie Kaputa (Source: Google)

★★★★★

This is a fabulous orthodontic practice. Dr.’s Lee and Katie are extremely talented and continue to hone in on their craft, which made our decision to use their office for all of our children’s needs that much easier. Their staff and other Doctors are kind, caring, and professional. From the moment you walk in to their office, being introduced to their services, accommodations, and learning the patient routines…you walk into a place you can feel confident and comforted that your needs will be met. With no pressure to commit to their services, you’ll be walked through the financial costs and options, as well as work with your insurance provider. We strongly recommend Graber and Gyllenhaal Orthodontics to give you or your child a smile they’re sure to love.

★★★★★

Our daughter needed extensive orthodontic care & we were SO HAPPY with the excellent care that Graber Orthodontists in Vernon Hills provided her!!  They are very kind and compassionate doctors who take time to explain everything to their patients and parents, and who never ever condescend their patients.  They are there 110% for your kids even if you have extensive work that needs to be done, as our daughter did.  They made her as comfortable as possible & supported her throughout her challenging teen years with braces.  I LOVE this office & highly recommend them!!  State of the art equipment and technology and highly skilled staff!

We have had a fantastic experience at Graber & Gyllenhaal! The orthodontists and staff are warm and friendly and extremely knowledgable. More importantly, the experience is as pain free as possible with excellent results. Their advanced technology allows for faster treatment times and their execution rivals perfection. Thank you for your excellent work on my son’s mouth! I highly recommend Graber & Gyllenhaal!

I would give them more than 5 stars if I could. I wish I had brought my child here much earlier – probably in grade 2 or 3. Organized, professional, great at explaining everything. Plus (this may sound trivial) great office with coffee, wifi and everything else you need while you wait. My anxiety about the whole process was completely alleviated by the great staff.

Mark Lanscioni (Source: Google)

★★★★★

Graber Orthodontics is an amazing orthodontics place! They have amazing, friendly, knowledgeable staff that answered all of my questions along the way, plus their orthodontic work is great. They got my teeth all straightened out with braces in less than a year. I had a really positive experience with this place and they do amazing work!

C Y. from Chicago, IL (Source: Yelp)

I can’t say enough praises about this orthodontics group! Here’s why I chose them: 1. Credentials? – Formidable. Dr. Lee and Dr. Katie are international orthodontic authorities. They teach a lot and the group attracts patients from everywhere. My nieces’ orthodontics group in Texas has Graber conference accreditations on their office walls to certify their own expertise. We were referred to Graber by a pediatric dentist who had personally suffered through traditional treatment for the condition my kid had – a Class 3 Underbite. Our dentist learned (in dental school at U of M) the game-changing treatment methods developed by Graber and being taught worldwide. If we wanted the world’s best treatment for the condition – and avoid what she endured – we should go to Graber. So, we make a 60-75 min commute to get to them. 2. Results? My child’s condition is often addressed by surgery (broken jaw, wired closed for the healing period) as a young adult. We avoided that awful experience by seeing Graber. Flawless and painless result in 12 months, as predicted. Even the little bumps (broken bracket, adjusting something that didn’t feel right) were handled willingly as part of the package. My other child needed jaw expansion to avoid serial extractions. The expansion was done flawlessly, painlessly and more quickly than predicted. 3. Pricing/Billing/Administration? – Premium pricing. Well-explained. Well-documented, although you don’t receive monthly bills by mail or email. I haven’t used their website access for info or billing, although I should. Administration could be improved by (a) weekend appointments, and (b) automated email notices containing a link when something is posted (X-rays or bills), if HIPPA permits, (c) an after-visit summary that memorializes your doctor conversation about today’s status and what’s next. Orthodontic treatment for your kids is a significant investment in their physical and psycho/social health. In the end, you want a good result. CHECK. Along the way, you don’t want to torture them or overpay to remedy mistakes. CHECK. We’re so relieved that we chose Graber!

If I could give Graber Orthodontics 10 stars I would. Prior to going to Dr. Graber I saw 2 other orthodontists in my area and both were somewhat perplexed with my unusual problem and the one of them recommended Dr. Graber due to his knowledge and experience. I am amazed that it looks like I will one day have great looking teeth. Dr. Graber and the other doctors are very patient as my tooth is taking it’s time and EVERY single employee at the practice is friendly, patient, upbeat and make me feel comfortable. I’m an adult patient. I can’t say enough good things about this practice.

LOVE Graber Orthodontics in Glenview! They took such great care of my little guy and did what other Orthos said was impossible!  After only one year the change was incredible and he had everything taken off today!! He Left with a gift bag full with all the forbidden treats and standing ovation! Don’t let orthos pull your kids teeth if they say their mouth is too crowded without seeing Dr Graber or Dr Kelly first!

Chris Schwaar (Source: Google)

★★★★★

Such an excellent experience for all the time I’ve been there. The entire staff is so kind, and I was immediately welcomed and treated as an old friend of everyone. No complaints with my experience whatsoever. I highly recommend Graber for any Ortho needs!

★★★★★

Excellent, knowledgeable staff – Dr Graber is the BEST. I am quite sure they hire based on talent and merit (as it should be). I read a comment about the lack of diversity among the staff here – I am personally SO SICK of hearing this whiney drum-beat from the same groups ….Diversity is irrelevant. Let’s get our priorities straight! This is the place to go for superior orthodontic care. Period.

This practice is fantastic. Three of my family members have received great care at this practice and achieved wonderful results. One of my kids just got braces off today. I don’t know why I forgot to write a review after all these years but today I realized it was important to tell people about the great care at the practice. My family has received care from both Dr. Graber’s as well as Dr. Kim. They are all very nice, personable people who guide you along and keep you informed about your care or the care of your family member. They are more than informative and happy to answer your questions. Believe me I always have a ton of questions for them and they are always kind enough to answer each one. They also use all the latest technology which is extremely helpful in understanding your care or that of a loved one and efficient when it comes to appointments. The rest of the staff at Graber is as personable and helpful as the orthodontists. It is such a pleasure to come there and know my family is in good hands with people who care about their orthodontia needs. I must say they were also very accurate in letting me know the needs of my children and the time it will take. If you follow all his or her directions we found that each family member completed treatment a little early. If you don’t follow directions to the letter than expect treatment to take longer as the orthodontists clearly explain during the process. Today when I went to pick up my kid from his brace removal I got a thorough explanation of his future needs. As we left my kids was celebrated by the staff for the brace removal and given a mug with all the things he was not allowed to eat for the past 10 months. He was thrilled. Thank you Graber Orthodontics for another wonderful result!!!

Maureen G. from Winnetka, IL (Source: Yelp)

★★★★★

So pleased with the treatment and outcome from Graber Orthodontics. Dr. Kelley Gyllenhaal and Dr. Katie Graber are wonderful, professional and extremely capable doctors. I would not hesitate to recommend them to any of my friends and family. As an adult, coming back for more orthodontic work, the entire office made me feel comfortable while I was in treatment. I wish this office had been in the Glenview location when my children were in braces!

Brittany S. from Chicago, IL (Source: Facebook)

★★★★★

Love, love, love this practice and its people. Heres’ why: 1) Credentials and knowledge – outstanding training and commitment to continuing medical education. Dr. Katie travels and lectures, and stays up to date on the latest recommendations and teachings in orthodontics. 2) Skill – I moved to the area part-way through orthodontic care from an out of state provider. I had lingual brackets, and nearly all of the area orthodontists I called were not comfortable with them. But Dr. Katie? No problem! She took over my care with great skill and competence, and I never once questioned the health or outcome of my treatment with her. 3) Top notch professionalism – from scheduling to the initial visit, and every visit since, I have been beyond impressed with the staff and the doctors. Great scheduling options and team. When you arrive, you are warmly greeted, given ample time to meet with the doctor and come up with a treatment plan that works with you (as opposed to someone just telling you what you “have” to do), and then are quickly and efficiently seen once you’re an established patient there for routine checks withOUT feeling rushed out the door. Overall, I am soooo happy I came here. Dr. Katie is phenomenal – loved her at my initial visit with all of her knowledge and her collaborative approach to treatment, and loved her at every visit since when I know I am getting great orthodontic care. We are headed out of state again, but I would happily come back for any additional orthodontic care. Highly, highly recommend!

I love the staff at Graber. They are always friendly and accomodating. We had started with another orthodontist with an excellent reputation but that were always rude and offputting. I was so happy Graber opened an office in Glenview. The doctors are top notch and always willing to answer questions.
