★★★★★

Their front desk service is always so helpful. Dr Nudera is excellent orthodontist and his staff is awesome and very friendly. Our son is finishing his 1st year of first faze braces and our daughter just got her 2nd faze braces put in last week. We couldn’t been happier with our choice of orthodontist for our kids! We will definitely recommend them to our family and friends who are in need of their service!

I gave Nudera Orthodontics 5 stars because the staff is great, and in the month and a half I’ve been here, I can already see a positive difference in my teeth. I really like their point system because it encourages patients to be more attentive of their oral hygiene. I highly recommend them.

I recently had a consultation for braces at NUDERA and it was such a great experience!!! Everyone was nice and friendly and smiling like they absolutely loved their jobs. I felt comfortable and excited to start the process of straightening my teeth with Invisalign. I highly recommend this place!!!

★★★★★

Fantastic place for oral treatment. I am almost done with my braces treatment and I am very glad that I chose Nudera. All of the staff is very nice and welcoming and I couldn’t imagine going to another orthodontist. I have never had a bad experience here and don’t think I ever will. To everyone on the Nudera team, thank you!

I was a patient at Nudera Orthodontics for 4 years (my tooth arrangement was abnormal) and I am nearing the end of my treatment very soon. I am so happy with how my teeth currently look and can not wait to show them off when I finally get the braces off! The hygienists and doctors are so nice and helpful and I have a fantastic time whenever I go. I highly recommend Nudera!

★★★★★

I’m from Indiana and work in Illinois, so I wanted to go to a place close to my workplace. Being unfamiliar with the area I looked up who did the Damon system and saw several offices close to where I worked. My plan was to get a quote from each to see what the staff was like. Nudera’s office was the first one I went to and after interacting with the staff, I knew I found a winner. The staff is extremely friendly and caring. I would suggest anyone who is even considering braces at least go there to talk with the staff, you will not regret it.

★★★★★

We visited several local orthodontists before settling on Nudera. Loved the atmosphere of the practice, they are always on time, welcoming and patient with the kids and families. They take time to explain what is happening at every visit. My son was so comfortable with the Dr and staff throughout his entire experience. Highly recommend.

★★★★★

Friendly staff. The ladies who work with the patients are kind and patient with my children. the front office staff is very patient with me when I need to change appointments =) The orthodontists themselves listen to my questions and take the time to explain the answers. They want what’s best for your teeth and mouth and care that you get the right treatment.

★★★★★

Every visit we love this place even more! The front office staff are welcoming the moment you walk in which is great. We have seen both Docs and they are extremely professional, they explain what they are going to do directly to the kids and in terms the kids understand and you can tell the treatment plan for your child is not taken lightly and the best treatment is given….highly recommend Nudera!

★★★★★

I was a patient of Drs. Jim and Bob Nudera back in 2007. I was a sophomore in high school, trying to decide what I wanted to do for the rest of my life. Not only did I love the doctors and staff, but I also loved the treatment and the friendly environment. Each and every person in that office was amazing. They transformed my smile, and with that, self confidence came with. I loved going to the office for treatment, and it made me realize that I wanted learn more about teeth. Thankfully, they were nice enough for me to shadow over one summer to learn more about dentistry. (And I LOVED IT EVEN MORE!) Today, I have finished dental school and I am now doing my residency in General Practice Residency (GPR). Both doctors, assistants, and staff had a HUGE impact on my career, and I could be happier. Not only are they good at creating beautiful smiles, but their positive energy, encouragement, and knowledge really changed me on another level. If you want someone to treat you like family, go see Dr. Jim and Bob Nudera! They truly care about every patient. 🙂

We have been so pleased with the excellent care received at Nudera Orthodontics.  My daughter finished her treatment over a year ago and her teeth are beautiful.  My youngest son began his orthodontic treatment a few months ago.  Every staff person there is professional, kind and caring.  The office is run so well, and appointments are kept on time!   Nudera is really the best option for orthodontics!

★★★★★

The staff at Nudera were so welcoming and they knew exactly how to explain the process to us. They make your teeth look wonderful and even give out rewards for doing things right! I would definitely recommend this place to anyone who is looking for nice staff, a good experience and of course great looking teeth!

Alice S. from Elgin, IL (Source: Yelp)

★★★★★

Today was our first visit to the office. The onboarding process leading up to today was pleasant and seamless. Our son had actually been excited about getting braces as a few of his teeth that are out of alignment have been bothering him. The office is wonderful and the team is very upbeat and professional. Once the braces were ready to go on, our son became anxious as he may have felt overwhelmed. Dr. Jim and his team made our son feel very comfortable and eventually he calmed and the process began. We are confident that we made the right choice in choosing Nudera for our son’s orthodontic treatment. Looking forward to the end result! Thank you!!

Robert M. from Elgin, IL (Source: Yelp)

★★★★★

Nudera are great, we have no hesitation recommending them.  My son seems to break his wires at the most inopportune times, and Nudera do all possible to get them fixed immediately.  They are on time for appointments and more than friendly. Office is always clean and staff courteous.   Thanks for making braces fun for Joshua.

★★★★★

I got my braces on this summer, and my parents found Nudera to be the best choice. I felt really nervous, but the staff are so nice, understanding, and they made me feel right at home! They thought of everything possible to keep me comfortable, from being very informative about absolutely everything, to giving me some lip balm so it wouldn’t hurt when they stretched my lips to put the braces in! You can’t call their waiting room a waiting room, you get in almost as soon as you enter their doors! I mean, I don’t like having braces, but at Nudera it’s actually kind of fun! The doctors are so nice, and I would recommend the Nudera office in South Elgin to any person getting braces.

The staff is so pleasant and it was always a hassle-free visit. The front desk team is very friendly and accommodating – extremely helpful when it comes to scheduling – or rescheduling. My child finished her treatment and we are very happy with the results. I would highly recommend!

★★★★★

My son just got braces last week and he was super nervous. Everyone in that entire office made him feel right at home and calm. Putting on the braces was very quick and easy and we can’t wait for the end result! They also work with you in billing and come up with a plan that works for you. We are very happy so far!

Nudera orthodontics and there staff are absolutely wonderful. They are prompt in the service; happy, pleasant, and professional in their actions; and most of all, they make you feel comfortable and at home during our appointments, I will be sure to send all of our family and friends for treatment when needed

★★★★★

Dr. Jim and Dr. Bob did an amazing job on our son’s teeth! The difference between when he started treatment and the end result is night and day. All the staff in the office and technicians are so friendly and helpful. Even scheduling appointments during a pandemic was easy. Thank you to the whole Nudera Orthodontics team!!

so friendly. answered my questions, when I forgot the answers. Dr. Nudera never made me feel like an overbearing mom.. so glad we switched from a not friendly orthodontist. The staff at Nudera are all friendly and make you feel welcome.

★★★★★

Have other kids with braces and wish I found Nudera sooner. Very friendly and professional staff. They showed us around the office as if welcoming us to their home. They did a fantastic job explaining the entire process in a way we all (including my daughter) could understand. Would highly recommend Nudera to anyone

Margaret Liebert (Source: Facebook)

★★★★★

Nudera monitored my son for almost 2 years before putting braces on him at the age of 10. The staff is very calm, upbeat, and friendly. They put sunglasses on my son to help block the lights the staff need to work. The office has gaming consoles, after appt. snacks, a brushing station, and offers rewards to the patients to promote proper dental care. The best part, my son’s teeth showed improvement immediately! He has had his braces for 6 months and I can’t wait to see the final results in another 4!!! I would highly recommend Nudera.

★★★★★

Huge gratitude to the team at Nudera Orthodontics. One might say I am a bit of a huge baby when it comes to sitting in the chair at the dentist’s office. I am nervous, full of tension, and visualizing running out the door. But the whole staff, as well as Dr. Jim, were so very kind and supportive, going out of their way to put me at ease. (I was there to get my Invisalign braces started). I didn’t realize my tension was so obvious, but apparently it was, so the awesome technicians were making me laugh and even went as far as to show me funny animal photos on the interwebs to help get my mind off of my worries and into a calmer state. Thanks, all, you’re the best. The office is super nice, clean, and full of friendly faces. It’s interesting and cool to see the Invisalign system’s projections of how my teeth will look in the future – let’s see get excited about your goal as the process is just beginning. See y’all soon.

★★★★★

My daughter is currently under Nudera’s care (it’s been about a year now) and we are all very pleased with the care she has been given. The office us very clean & we never wait more than a few minutes for the appointment. She has seen both Dr.’s and has had many different dental assistants and all of them have been great. I would definitely recommend Nudera to anyone needing ortho work.

★★★★★

Nudera Orthodonitcs is a great place to go for orthodontic care in South Elgin . There always very courteous and friendly . Doctors Jim and Bob, are very professional and friendly there also . Never rushing and always answering any questions I have . And as far as being professional and yet friendly too , it would be very hard to beat this group of folks in my opinion, and would definitely recommend the Nudera group to anyone searching for orthodontic treatment.

★★★★★

I cannot say enough positive things about Nudera Orthodontics.  The front desk staff is professional, organized and kind.  The whole office is very respectful of the patients time, and everyone works in a very efficient way.  The hygienists are friendly, careful and personable.  Always making sure the patient is comfortable and informed on the purpose of the visit.  Both Drs. Nudera are professional and trustworthy, and have an awesome “chair-side” manner.  They are very knowledgeable and convey this to the patient in a friendly way. In no way have I ever felt pushed or pressured into treatment, and they stand behind all of their work.  I would highly recommend Dr. Jim and Dr. Bob to anyone looking for an exceptional orthodontist.

I could not have picked a better practice! As a 31 year old adult, it was important for me to find an efficient and comfortable office for my braces. Nudera is quick, clean, advanced and extremely professional! I’m so glad I decided on this office after a few consults and I can’t wait to see where my teeth end up!

Lisa S. from Gilberts, IL (Source: Yelp)

★★★★★

My daughter just got her braces taken off today at Nudera Orthodontics and we couldn’t be happier! ! Both docs were great and the office staff couldn’t be more friendly or helpful. I’m sure we will be going back soon for my youngest to start her journey with braces and i feel completely comfortable with them to go another round.

Krista L. from Sycamore, IL (Source: Yelp)

★★★★★

First my daughter, then myself, and now my 13 year old son ~ couldn’t be happier. What a great office. The staff and doctors are wonderful, compassionate and understanding. I have never felt rushed with our care, and have even been accommodated early morning, before school. We live approximately 30 minutes from the South Elgin office, and the staff has made accommodations for us several times before my son had classes. The doctors have even answered their cell phone (from the road) to take my call. Their numbers are listed on the voicemail for emergencies, and they actually answered the call. I was overly impressed to talk to them directly, without going through the answering service. We have recommended them to several friends, and all have been just as impressed by their professionalism.

★★★★★

I recently went to Nudera for a consultation for Invisalign. They were so kind and friendly there. Everyone was smiling and happy like they truly loved their jobs.  I felt comfortable and it was a fun experience so I definitely am not afraid to start the process of straightening my teeth.

Nickie S. from West Chicago, IL (Source: Yelp)

★★★★★

We love Nudera and can’t recommend them enough!  My daughter just had her braces removed, after 16 months.  We were told the treatment would last 15-18 months, so right on target and timing was perfect as she just started high school.  Dr Jim and Dr Bob are both extremely nice, caring and knowledgeable.  We saw Dr. Bob most of the time.  The office staff is very friendly and accommodating too!  They do everything to make you comfortable.  Billing was easy (down payment and monthly charges to my HSA card).  The office is spotless, with a clean modern look.  They use the latest technology to improve their patients’ comfort and outcomes.  Their price is very competitive, about 15-30% less than quotes I had received from other St Charles/Tricity orthodontists.  My friend recommended them to me, I’m glad she did! I highly recommend them too.

The Nudera Brothers are amazing. They care about their patients. They take their time and answer all of your questions. They are polite and friendly. Their staff is great. Very friendly and helpful. Their office is state if the art. It’s very clean comfortable. I will definitely refer them to family and friends
