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

Dara C. from Las Vegas, NV (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Leaver is my son’s orthodontist. He and his staff are such a pleasure to work with. The office staff treats us like family and they always make us feel warm and welcome. We aren’t just another family coming in for braces. On our first visit Dr. Leaver took his time to get to know my son. He asked about his Interests and carried on a true conversation about his interests. He remembers his interests each time we come in. Dr. Leaver is always calm and easy going. His easy going way puts my son at ease while getting his treatment. The entire staff is kind as well. Each staff member I’ve had contact with treated us like family. They’ve explained the process and answered the million questions that I had with grace. They even answered the same question more than once with a smile on their face. We look forward to our check ups each time. It’s like seeing family!

Dr. Leaver is not only an amazing orthodontist, but he’s also very personable. I’ve had my braces off for at 7+ years, but when I needed my wired check he did it right away and explained to me why it was the way it was. His dad did my mom and sisters braces and he did mine and my brothers. It runs in his family. I can’t say enough nice things.

All the of the staff is very friendly and welcoming. Appointments are always at convenient times to fit into your schedule and we are always in at or before our scheduled time. They are all very thorough and make sure you understand everything! We love this place!!!

Zhiarra P. from Las Vegas, NV (Source: Yelp)


I’ve only been a patient for four months (and counting) and I’m already loving the whole orthodontics team! Dr. Leaver’s whole staff is so friendly and welcoming. Every time I come in, I’m always addressed by my name (and my name’s hard to pronounce but they get it right every time). Dr. Leaver takes time to get to know each and every one of his patients to make them feel comfortable. At my appointments, we always talk about Stranger Things and how my classes are going. Plus, they have great payment plans and they will work with you so that you’re happy with the price and plan. They’re customizable and reasonable. It doesn’t get any better than that!! Leaver and Gardner Orthodontics is THE place to go to get your perfect smile!!

We have had the absolute best experience with Leaver and Gardner. I personally had work done 10 years ago and I love my smile. My daughter has had her braces off for 2 years and is enjoying her perfect smile. My son currently has his on and everything had gone as planned. We as a family love this orthodontist and won’t go anywhere else.

Love this place. Everyone is so nice and professional and explain the entire process and allowed us to pay monthly to help with the costs of 2 kids with braces at the same time. My daughter elected to go with Invisalign through Leaver and Gardner and my son went with clear braces through them. They can do it all !!

Melissa B. from Las Vegas, NV (Source: Yelp)


Giovanni getting his new Retainer!! Thanks a bunch to DR LEAVER and Staff!!! Best orthodontists in the world! My 3 Kids go to them. my father, cousin and me went to Dr. Leaver sr. But his son Dr. Leaver and Dr. Gardner are amazing. They have put up with the Bordinhao’s for more the 3 decades. And convenience of having two locations is nice so you don’t have to wait long for appointments. Fort Apache & Russell and on Ann Rd & 95 #bestinvegas

My son is having his braces done here and I have been VERY happy with the experience. Everyone in the office is super friendly and helpful! The office itself is really cool…lots of unique decorations and fun things to look at. I love coming here! I would 100% recommend them to anyone reading this. Oh and the prices are great too!

I have been a patient since a very young age with Dr leaver (dad) had my kids and now husband go there. From the time you walk in they know who you are. Always smiling and very friendly. Cleanliness and work with your schedule.

Absolutely love this place. Everyone is extremely friendly and so nice. I love walking in and they know who my family is. I’ve only had experience w/Dr Leaver and he is amazing. He encourages me to come back & watch and ask all the questions I want. He’s very thorough, professional, and a really nice guy.

Yesica Gil (Source: Facebook)


First of all, the service is excellent, from the people who work there to the cleanliness of the place. My 10-year-old son is the patient, and we as parents want the best for our children in all aspects. We were recommended by our general dentist, and since our first visit we were very happy with the service my son need braces and they explain us the hole process of it second time they put it on and well he did not complain about anything so they are very careful with what they do, any questions you have they explain the whole process. We are satisfied customers in general!

We love Dr. Leaver and the staff here! My husband did his braces here and now we have our older daughter doing her braces here. Dr. Leaver is awesome and great at explaining the plan and process as well as answering questions. The staff is always friendly and helpful. We are able to get in and out with ease. Thanks for all you do!

Brandi Henry Sims (Source: Facebook)


Both drs and staff incredible. They did an amazing job on me and my son’s teeth. We were always treated great and we enjoyed going to every visit. They met our needs financially and we made a plan that was perfect to fulfill the obligation. I highly recommend everyone to them since the day I started going.

I love Dr. Leaver and the staff!! I got braces with Dr. Leaver’s dad years ago. So, when my daughter needed braces I knew where to go. My daughter is greeted by name every time she comes. The service is the best. I have two more children getting braces and we are coming back.

Shawanna S. from Las Vegas, NV (Source: Yelp)


This was not my first visit to an orthodontist. Trust me, I did my homework. I was almost stuck with a $3k plus bill with Super Smile but THANK GOD for Dr. Leaver! From the warm friendly staff at the front desk to the amazing assistant… We are so happy we made this choice. Dr. Leaver is so personable and thorough. Every visit has been timely, quick and easy. Billing was great… Optional payment plans. This office is doing it right. We are extremely happy with EVERYTHING!! 5 stars is not enough!

Maria Navarrete (Source: Facebook)


Dr. Leaver is awesome, he is super friendly and personable! He never makes us feel rushed and always takes time to talk to my daughter and myself. He has made my daughter’s smile so beautiful! The office staff is terrific as well and we never have had any problems. They also have some pretty sweet contests and giveaways! We both highly recommend Dr. Leaver!

Denise A. from Las Vegas, NV (Source: Yelp)


My daughter had her first consult this afternoon with Dr. Scott Leaver at Leaver & Gardner Orthodontics at their Ft. Apache office and she made this comment as we were leaving, “I was pleasantly surprised to see how friendly the staff was and how Dr. Leaver and Kelly made me feel comfortable since I’m not usually with strangers….they’re friendly and I can tell that they take pride in what they do, like they genuinely care.” As a parent, it’s important to me that my daughter is comfortable. They were informative, presented my options, no pressure and lenient with schedules that work for me, which is a definite plus!!!

Brandon C. from Las Vegas, NV (Source: Yelp)


This place is great, people friendly, office always has a good vibe and decor. Been going there for a long time dr leaver put braces on two of my children, and then his son took over years ago and out braces on two more of my kids. They are the best, if you need braces in Vegas, this is the place to go!!!

Been getting my braces done for the past year, they are great. I come in through the door and they know me by name so you can feel that they personally know you and that you do mean something to them, and braces well it looks like the braces are going awesome. I can definetly see a difference in my smile and the girls as dental assistants are always friendly and nice. They also took culinary insurance so that was a plus for me. Brought my bill lower, very satisfied with this place and i recomend it to others looking to get braces.

Melissa S. from Las Vegas, NV (Source: Yelp)


I initially took my 2 sons (ages 9 & 12) to this office and one other orthodontist office for a free consultation. Both offices told me that my 12 year old needed braces (which I already knew) but it was with my 9 year old that I received 2 totally different opinions… This office told me that he had too many baby teeth still and did not need anything done yet, they would check him again in one year. The other office told me he needed braces now, mostly on the bottom (for $1,000) while his teeth are growing in and then most likely full braces (for over $5,000) later on when he has all of his adult teeth……Hmmmmm I ended up choosing Leaver and Gardner because well, Dr. Leaver was so dang cool! Seriously, he is so friendly and laid back, he talked to my boys like they were all high school buddies. Also, the office is so nice (nice decor and very clean) and I trusted them more since they told me my youngest didn’t need anything done yet. Every office visit we are in and out in less than 20 minutes, it’s amazing! After 1 year we have not had any problems and are amazed with how straight his teeth already are. I hear Dr. Gardner is amazing too so you can’t go wrong by going here!

We are delighted with the exceptional service provided by the staff at Leaver & Gardner. They are always very helpful and knowledgeable and today was the 2nd time they opened the doors for us when they were closed. Rebecca was pleased to help today when my son’s wire came out. Thank you guys!!!

We absolutely LOVE this place. Our Son Dallas Jr felt so comfortable as did we & he ALWAYS left with a smile…The staff & Doc were always very kind, professional, & funny. Thank you for always making my family feel so welcome & for doing an amazing job for all your patients & their families…God bless you all.

We love this establishment! The staff is very professional, yet friendly. The ladies at the front desk greet you with a smile and are very helpful. Prior to receiving braces, our 10 year old was terrified. At our initial visit the staff reassured him that he would be in little to no pain and explained the entire process to him. This was all before asking him to lie back and open his mouth. As a parents we couldn’t thank them enough for their comfort. We’ve been back several times and each time he walks out with a smile on his face. I’d recommend Leaver and Gardner Orthodontics to everyone considering braces. They’re the best!

Jennifer Z. from Las Vegas, NV (Source: Yelp)


Kelly was sooooo amazing!!!! I came here literally a decade ago for my teenage braces. I had unfortunately lost my retainers during moving last year and my teeth shifted. Dr. Leaver and Kelly hooked it up with my Invisalign and retainers to fix my ugly crooked bottoms! They gave me an amazing price and a thorough exam to ensure my teeth were fit for treatment. The office is extremely clean and everyone is welcoming and friendly which is a plus because most ortho offices are a nightmare. The contemporary decor is simply gorgeous and they have star wars canvas on the walls!!!! Super excited and such cases a great fit for me. Thank you guys for making my teeth pretty and saving my life.

Let’s start with the patient care and customer service! They are unmatched. Myself and my daughter always feel welcomed and like we are at a family picnic when we come in lol. Great staff and excellent dr’s . My daughter loves coming here for treatment and this mom has no complaints

Cristina Finley (Source: Facebook)


The staff are so very nice and always greet people with welcoming smile. My 16 year old daughter is the patient here for a while and they always take good care of her. The place is so clean and customer service is above and beyond. We highly recommend this place.

We moved here from Chicago and didn’t know anyone. My son needed braces and we had several consultations with other orthodontist and none of them were as easy and welcoming as this team. I let my son pick who he felt the most comfortable with and we are both happy!! I love that they go over prices upfront and and make sure you understand the plan for your child’s teeth. We are so happy and thankful!!

Heidi Miller (Source: Facebook)


I just LOVE this orthodontist and their staff! My older daughter also got braces from them and now my younger daughter is going there. There are several years between my girls and the quality & service is just as good as it was with my older daughter. I always refer them! They’re amazing!

The staff and our Doctor has such great attitudes and made this a really great place for my 12 year old Tyrese to enjoy his braces and the car e her from beginning to end was remarkable. Thank you to you all, Tyrese and I thank you

Jen S. from Las Vegas, NV (Source: Yelp)


We love Leaver & Gardner Orthodontics! Our oldest son has been a patient there for years and we’ve been nothing but impressed. Easy scheduling, minimal (if any!) waiting, in and out procedures, etc. The doctors and staff are all friendly and kind, too. We love them and plan on taking our two younger sons there, too. Highly recommend them to everyone! 

Andrea B. from Las Vegas, NV (Source: Yelp)


Great doctors! Great staff! Office is very clean and inviting. Staff is friendly and professional. Dr. Leaver estimated 15 months for my braces; and exactly like he predicted 15 months later my braces were off and my teeth looked perfect. I get compliments all the time about my teeth/smile. I am very happy with the work he did. My kids are about to start treatment. I would highly recommend Leaver & Gardner Orthodontics to anyone who needs or is thinking about straightening their teeth.

Jessica D. from Las Vegas, NV (Source: Yelp)


I took my son in to see Dr. Leaver for the second time today. He is absolutely amazing, he was great with my son and myself. He isn’t in any rush to get my sons braces on. Which is so great considering the fast he gets them on the faster we have to pay for them. He has made us feel so comfortable at both appointments. His office staff is also great super friendly and kind. We have about 6 more months before my son gets his braces on. We look forwarding to seeing all the smiling faces on a monthly basis soon.

I was a Patient of Dr. Leaver Sr. for my orthodontic treatment and so was my 32 year old daughter while in elementary and now my 16 year old will be starting her orthodontic treatment. I am very pleased with the outcome of both my results aswell as my eldest daughter. I have recommended many patients throughout the years because I wish everyone to have only the best Orthodontic treatment with Great results and an office with a Processional Team, I highly recommend Dr Leaver and Gardner and their Staff…Thank you Dr’s Leaver and Dr. Gardner..

Stephanie M. from Las Vegas, NV (Source: Yelp)


This is the best orthodontist you’ll ever go to! Went here 8 years ago for braces as a teen. Now I’m in my 20’s needing my teeth corrected after them shifting from losing my retainer . Even after 8 years they haven’t lowered their standards. In fact, seems like they’ve raised them. Dr. Leaver is so nice and really cares about people, and he’s so knowledgeable about teeth. He gave me a great smile 8 years ago and I know he will deliver the 2nd time around! Got my scan for Invisalign yesterday. Just have to wait to get the retainers. You won’t be disappointed if you come here!!

Nikole R. from North Las Vegas, NV (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Leaver and his staff is so great!! They explain everything they are about to do to your child every second! They are gentle, kind, caring, and funny! Going to Dr. Leaver makes the whole braces experience a lot better for my daughter! I definitely recommend this orthodontist to anyone in Las Vegas!

I love laughing with my patients. They share stories of their lives and adventures with me, and allow me to become part of their life’s story. I treasure the moments when a patient chooses to tell me what they are learning in school, the accomplishments of their families, or where they've traveled. I learn so much about the world and life from the conversations I have with my patients, and truly appreciate each insight.
