★★★★★

I would highly recommend this orthodontics to anyone in the Louisville area. The staff are very friendly, professional, and frankly awesome! I had an emergency situation with one side of my bonded retainer coming loose and even though I was not a patient they treated me like one and was able to temporarily fix my issue.

From the initial consultation to the end of the treatment plan we have been thoroughly pleased with the service we received. The doctors and staff are top notch in their ability to make us feel welcome and like a part of the family. We were kept well-informed at each visit. No question was left unanswered and they made sure we were comfortable with the progress and treatment result. This has been a five star experience for our family and we highly recommend them!!!! They definitely have given us “a reason to smile”!

I really cannot say enough about Dr. Mattingly and his incredible staff at Mattingly & Howell Orthodontics. There’s a location downtown for the few invisalign checkups that are needed (few compared to normal braces) and it’s convenient for anyone who works in Indiana or downtown Louisville. The process is so smooth and takes no time at all to correct teeth (and bite) back to the proper place. I hesitated for a few years before pulling the trigger on invisalign, but I’m so happy I corrected my smile. I previously suffered from TMJ and I really think the bite correction and realignment of my teeth has done wonders to help the pain from teeth clenching and grinding. I’m about 6 months out from my last “invisalign tray” currently and really love the outcome. I look back at pictures before invisalign and it’s incredible how fast the process works with simple trays. If you are considering invisalign, Dr. Chris, his entire staff (especially Gayle!) are so kind. Best money spent and post invisalign, I smile all time because I’m so happy with my teeth.

With three kids and three sets of braces over the last eight or so years, and frequenting both the Lebanon and Bardstown offices, I’ve seen a lot of the wonderful people at Mattingly and Howell. They never fail in their kindness nor their efficiency! I would recommend them to anyone.

★★★★★

The doctors and staff are all extremely nice. The waiting room has plenty of seating and lots of reading material. Complimentary coffee and toys for the little ones to pass the time. However, we never had to wait long to be seen. It is a very upbeat atmosphere. They did a wonderful job making my daughter’s smile completely beautiful!

★★★★★

I am never not smiling! I am please with the 60 week period of my invisalign treatment. The staff treats all clients as family and provides excellent service. Being a college student who lives an hour away from the location, I never had a problem with scheduling and they even stayed up until closing to tend to my needs. A+ �

This office is so clean and the staff is so nice. They talk to me and my mom to let us know exactly what they are going to do and what they will do the next time at my visit. No unexpected surprises. I would definitely recommend to anyone! �

Wow. Time sure does go fast. Today Gary Robinson Jr got his braces taken off. These guys here were just awesome from day one! Gary has a lot of people who love him his mom, dad, and me his stepmom. And every time one of us went either to take him or pick him up the staff here was just sensational. Having braces was a part of our sons childhood experience and we are so very proud and fortunate that you were able to share that with us. Thanks a million and continue being apart of the journey so many of our kids will take. You are simply the best!!!!

Mattingly & Howell Orthodontics is phenomenal! The doctors and staff were always friendly and professional. We never felt rushed. They patiently answered all of my many questions about my son’s treatment. They were always on time with our appointments. We will definitely use them again and recommend them to friends and family. We are very pleased with the end result and my son LOVES his smile.

Today I just got my braces off. It was a bittersweet moment for me as I left. Even though I’m happy my braces are off but I won’t get to see my M&H family once a month anymore. The staff here are fantastic!!! Never had a bad experience here. My 3 yr old daughter even loved coming to my appointments because everyone treated her awesomely!! Very professional and outstanding work here! Id recommend this place to anyone and everyone.

My daughter has just completed her two years with braces with Mattingly & Howell. From the first time we walked into their office to the last appointment the experience was awesome. The staff was very welcoming. Drs. Mattingly & Howell are very personable and get to know you and your kids as a person. They some how make going to the dentist fun for the kids. My wife and I are gearing up for my younger daughter to start the process next year. We know exactly what were in for and knowing that will make the experience very pleasant.

Before deciding to go with Dr. Mattingly for my Invisalign, I got second opinions from 2 other orthodontists around town. Although some offered cheaper options, none were as thorough as Dr. Mattingly which made the decision an easy one. He offers hours that allowed me to schedule some appointments before or after work. He’s very knowledgeable, the staff is experienced and the whole office is run smoothly and efficiently. Dr. Mattingly will make sure you are completely satisfied with your smile. I couldn’t be more happy with the way my teeth turned out!

Words can’t describe how amazing these people are. I’ve been going through braces and retainers here for the past 2 years and the staff is practically my second family! Unlike many dental office workers, these guys communicate and make you feel good there. If you or a family member needs braces, I would 10/10 recommend these guys.

I can’t say enough good things about Mattingly & Howell!! From my initial consultation to my deband everyone was AWESOME! They have become my friends over the past 16 months and I will truly miss seeing them on a regular basis. However, I don’t miss the braces, but LOVE the results! At my age I never thought I would have straight teeth again. Thanks to Mattingly & Howell, I d

I went here for care when I was a teenager and now both of my oldest children have received care here as well. I have another child who will receive care here in the future. The orthodontists and their staff are the BEST!!! They are kind, compassionate, caring, and patient! I highly recommend them!!

★★★★★

This place is a fantastic place for orthodontics! The people are very nice, there is little to no wait time, and they provide the best care for its patients. Even if I’m early to my appointment, they will accommodate to me. I sign in and brush my teeth, and the majority of the time I am called back before I sit back down. The people who work here are very friendly and welcoming. Overall, it’s a great place for orthodontic needs!

★★★★★

I have two daughters in braces right now, every time we are in the staff is ALWAYS personable and polite. Both DR. Howell and Dr. Mattingly are informational, caring, and genuine. I have received after hours calls on weekends and holidays to check on the girls after they have received different appliances during their stages of orthodontic work. I feel like Mattingly and Howell’s entire staff goes above and beyond to provide exceptional care to my family. I am so glad we chose them for our families orthodontic needs!

★★★★★

From our initial consultation to the day our daughter’s braces came off, our experience with the staff has been excellent. Our treatment plan went exactly as they presented, over 2 years of appointments and every one was prompt, efficient, and on time!!! Staff is super friendly and takes pride in a great experience for their patients. I would recommend them to anyone looking for an orthodontist!

I recommend you all to everyone! This place is fantastic and the most caring bunch of people I’ve ever met! MacKenzie had her braces removed today and a new girl was born from this experience! She has a phenomenal sense of self esteem right now! Thanks so much!

As an adult I decided to get braces a second time and was referred to Mattingly & Howell by my dentist. I am SO thankful for that recommendation. This outfit is top-notch. I had a great experience and will definitely refer my friends and family to go here as well. Thank you!

They are fantastic! I am in adult braces (on my 2nd month) and can already see an amazing difference! Everyone from the doctors to the ladies at the front desk are patient and personable. I can not wait to see the end result.

The Doctor’s and staff have my interest best at heart from my 1st appointment. I was treated with great respect and felt like I had known them forever. Very professional, kind and great people skills . When ever I had a question, I receive a response in a timely manner and sometimes from the Doctor on a Saturday. You don’t get this type service just anywhere. In my book they are Top Notch. Looking forward to seeing my end results in several months.

There was never a day that I went in and wasn’t greeted with a smile and a warm welcome. Everyone called me by my name as if they knew me my entire life and just made me feel like I was a part of their family. They are all professional and all so nice. The appointment times are flexible and they were always able to get me in very quick for my next appointments. Not only are they flexible but the appointments are quick. They will spend as much time as I needed to answer all my questions but when it came down to them working on my teeth, they were very fast and efficient. They work like a well oiled machine and because of this, there is almost never a wait to be seen on time which is very hard to find these days. I highly recommend Mattingly & Howell Orthodontics to everyone!

We were in town from Wisconsin and had a bit of an emergency with a wire that popped out in my sons mouth, Mattingly and Howell saw him right away did a few quick clips and had us on our way very reasonable with us and we were not even their patient’s. Very kind of them to help us out and we are very thankful!!!! Highly recommend.

I was told I needed to get braces or invisalign by my dentist then referred here because my brother comes here for braces. I, on the other hand, chose to get invisalign and was told that I would use them for over a year. I just got them taken off and I could not be happier. They made this long process so smooth with their use of technology and wonderful communication with clients. I will always refer family and friends to Mattingly and Howell Orthodontics.

With 4 kids in braces, we have spent some time at Mattingly & Howell Orthodontics over the past few years! Everyone was friendly and polite, every single visit. One of the best things was that the wait was never very long. They are very good about getting patients in for their appointments very quickly. And now, our kids have beautiful, straight teeth. I would highly recommend this practice! Sheila Mays

This is my second experience at Mattingly & Howell orthodontics, my teeth have changed over the years through growth and I decided on Invisalign this time. I wouldn’t go to anyone else for my orthodontic needs, the staff is always so understanding and helpful. They treat me like family. They have been with me through all the changes from age 11 to 28 and have pretty much watched me grow. I now drive an hour and a half to see them for my appointments and love every minute of my time there. Thank you Mattingly & Howell for my beautiful smile!

My daughters’ are both patients of Mattingly & Howell. All of the employees know their jobs well, they communicate well and are friendly. My oldest daughter completed her treatment in July. Her teeth turned out beautiful and it took less time than we ever expected. I love the office staff and doctors. They truly have been a great office to work with. I work at a dental practice and could have chosen many others, but I am so glad I chose Mattingly and Howell. I wish I could post a pic of her teeth, I am very happy for her!!!

I finished my two years of braces in December 2011 and the results have been wonderful. I was a little nervous getting braces at first since I was 34 at the time but knew I wanted to get my under bite corrected and braces were recommended by my dentist. From my first consultation until the time I got my braces off, both Dr. Mattingly and Dr. Howell and the staff were nothing less than amazing. Each visit to the office I always received a warm welcome and they made the experience as pleasant as possible. I followed the doctor’s orders about what not to each, about flossing, and keeping up with regular dental care. I had pictures taken before I got the braces on and when I got them off and I was amazed with the results. I wear my retainer every night and still have the same wonderful smile I did when I got my braces off (I have received lots of compliments on my smile). I would definitely recommend Mattingly & Howell Orthodontics to anyone looking to improve their smile!

My third child just got out of braces. Mattingly and Howell was always so customer-friengly, accommodating, and professional. I loved the up-front communication about expense. In 10 years, we never had to wait more than 5 minutes in the waiting area. Thanks for the beautiful smiles.

My son has been a patient of this group for 9 years. He had his first set of braces at age 6 then a permanent retainer and his final set put on last year. They took a terrified 6 year old and have worked with him throughout the last 9 years to ensure he had a positive experience at EVERY appointment. Easy to schedule, very informative and every person on the staff makes you and your child feel relaxed and important. They are in my opinion the only choice if you or your child is in need of orthodontics.

We are now currently on our 4th set of braces in our family, yikes! I cannot say enough about the amazing staff at Mattingly and Howell! From the first phone call inquiring about our first child’s braces to now, we have had nothing but the utmost respect and praise for every single person on the staff! What a warm and inviting environment! It feels a bit like home! The smiles in our family are a bit bigger after seeing the great results we have had at Mattingly and Howell! Would not go anywhere else!

They have a very friendly staff and are always available to answer questions and help anyway they can. I recommend them to anyone searching for Orthodontic treatment. Their friendly atmosphere makes you feel right at home. They look out for your best interest. Dr. Mattingly had the same concerns I did about getting braces with my line of work; I am the face of my dealership so it is important I look my best. He found ways to make my dental work, work best for me. He did some research and was able to get me Invisalign, which we both thought, and I have been told my whole life I could not get. I am a few months into my treatment and I could not be happier.. Finally getting the smile I have always wanted and I have Doctors that go out of their way to accommodate my needs.

We’ve been taking our daughter here for a couple of years for advise on extractions and to plan her upcoming orthodontic procedures. We have met all 3 doctors and most of the staff during our visits so far. Every one of them has been extremely kind and patient with our daughter as well as friendly and forthcoming with my husband and I. All of our questions have been met with clear answers in an appreciative manner. We have full confidence that we chose the right Orthodontic practice to help us with our daughter’s needs. We highly recommend this practice to anyone looking for an Orthodontist.
