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

Christine K. from Greenwood, IN (Source: Yelp)

★★★★★

Dr. Ripley has taken care of all three of my kids over the years and I couldn’t be happier. His kind, humorous, and warming personality is contagious. Dr. Ripley treats his patients as if they were family, so not only is his orthodontic work spectacular, but the experience is enjoyable. All three of my children have told me they look forward to seeing Dr. Ripley and his assistants, and from the many years we have been going to Dr. Ripley, I see why. I recommend Dr. Ripley to all!

★★★★★

My two daughters have been treated by Dr. Ripley and his fantastic staff for several years, this includes the annual follow-up visits. Not only is Dr. Ripley a wonderful orthodontist, but he has surrounded himself with an extremely talented, pleasant and lively team of professionals. My younger daughter who happens to be on the autistic spectrum was ALWAYS treated with warmth, kindness & over the top consideration of her needs. Trust me they spoiled her! My daughters actually looked forward to their visits with Tricia, Rachel, Diane & Shelley (just to name a few) through the years. I would highly recommend Ripley Orthodontics. Diane Callahan

everyone in this office is so pleasant and friendly. my daughter was so nervous about getting her braces on today. she came out all smiles and the office staff went over all her instructions and gave her all the tools she needed to take care of her braces at home.

★★★★★

He is the best — my case is hard with 8 temporaries on and he doesn’t even flinch — he says things will be fine and encourages me to hang in there and get the best result.  He also understands that if I can’t though he will help me be done sooner — braces with 8 temps is not easy but you would never know that with him.  Very positive and very great — as is the whole office.

I couldn’t have imagined going to any other orthodontist than Dr. Ripley! His knowledge and expertise makes it easy to put your complete trust in him and what he recommends. My teeth were a mess and I couldn’t have received a more perfect outcome after years of expanders, braces and retainers. Not only is Dr. Ripley wonderful, but so is his staff. The orthodontic assistants and receptionist there are so fun and made each visit much more enjoyable. I almost looked forward to going to see everyone- haha! HIGHLY, highly recommend

★★★★★

All 3 of my children have gone through this office.  They made it easy from the start and didn’t make me feel like they were trying to tack on any services.  Last one out of braces last week – woohoo!  They loved going there – great atmosphere, great staff and they always remember you and your children’s names.  Really don’t have anything bad to say – Thanks Dr. Ripley and Staff.

★★★★★

Dr. Ripley and his entire team are outstanding! He has given me the best gift that anyone could have given me, and that is my new smile I share with the world today! I couldn’t be more confident and as happy as I am now without the hard work of this team. The office is always upbeat and pleasant! I moved to NYC during the middle of my treatment, but decided to continue to make trips back to Indianapolis over a year to finish up with Dr. Ripley I’m happy that I did — He’s simply the best!

★★★★★

The staff we encountered were very friendly and more importantly, honest. I was fully prepared to have to pay for my son to have braces. I was not thrilled about it though, who would be? It turns out, my son really doesn’t need braces unless we were concerned about a couple minor cosmetic issues. Dr. Ripley showed us how well his teeth aligned and left the decision completely to us. He even gave a few much less expensive options for said issues! Anyway, Dr. Ripley could have sold me into a set of $4,600 braces for my son, but he chose to be direct and honest. I don’t think a person could ask for much more than that when trying to make a decision like this. I will highly recommend him!

★★★★★

The staff and Dr. Ripley are wonderful and always very friendly. I appreciate Dr. Ripley’s expertise, knowledge, and ability to relate with his patients on a personal level while maintaining professionalism. He was able to make what could have been a very scary experience for my child, fun. They are always quick to respond or get my child in with any needs or concerns we may have.

★★★★★

Dr. Ripley and his staff are the absolute best !!! They’ve all treated me so kindly when I was a little nervous about upcoming treatment and everyone has taken such good care of me too!! Dr. Ripley and his staff are all so warm and welcoming too, I’ve just had the most wonderful experience with everyone there and couldn’t be more thrilled with the outcome of my smile now. Thank you Dr. Ripley and staff, you are the best !!

Dr. Ripley shared resources & goody bags with my 1st grade classroom at Westlake Elementary in Wayne township to help promote dental care for February’s dental health month! They were so engaged & excited!! They got to see model teeth, a dental tray to see that a trip to our friendly dentist isn’t so scary, & read books with activities to go with them! A special “thank you” to Missy Claxton for reaching out to me and offering engaging activities from the WONDERFUL office of Dr. Ripley! ♥️

★★★★★

Very friendly, courteous and professional staff. Dr. Ripley and Dr. Vaughn are excellent with their patients and really put them at ease. Both orthodontists stay educated on the latest advancements and techniques in the field of orthodontics, which is what I expect from a provider. I highly recommend this practice!

★★★★★

I have had my braces on for about 8 months now. Dr Ripley is great and always very down to earth. He really cares about his patients and what is best for them. I have had the chance to travel to both offices and not once have I ever felt not welcome or cared about. I would highly reccomend Ripley Orthopedics to anyone considering having work done! 5 stars for sure!

★★★★★

We went in for a consultation today and was very pleased!! Great staff! He wasn’t pushy and was very honest. My daughter can be a little shy and they did great with her. We go back in 6 months for another check up. I was so pleased he wasn’t the kind of orthodontist to put the braces on too early. He was honest about waiting until 12 year molars all came in. We loved our visit today and will definitely be back!

Dr Ripley and the office staff are absolutely amazing and kind. I really appreciated the way the talked to my son and look forward to going through them for our future orthodontist needs.

★★★★★

Excellent caring and professional staff! I could not be happier with the care Ripley and his staff have provided for my son. The correction they have made in his bite has been impressive and all while making the process as stress free as possible. Thank you for everything!

★★★★★

We’ve loved Ripley since our first visit. When my son had his first round of braces off, Dr. Ripley said his teeth aren’t 100% perfect but they’re functional so additional treatment was up to me. I really appreciated and respected his honesty and not pushing unneeded treatment on me. My daughter just started her orthodontic journey. Once again, everything was clear and laid out. We were presented with several options, including what needed to be done vs what would be nice to have done for perfect teeth. They are a truly top notch facility .

I love this office!! I was immediately greeted by a friendly face with a huge smile and which made me feel so welcomed! The staff was awesome and completely transparent with me from the beginning. They let me know that even though they weren’t in my insurance’s network immediately, but then laid out all of my options. They were awesome! The best office visit in all my almost 30 years of living!! Thanks Ripley Orthodontics!

★★★★★

Dr. Ripley and his ENTIRE staff are amazing! From the first time we met during the consultation all the way through this entire process, everything has been made very easy for me and both of my girls! Dr. Ripley has made sure that all measures were taken to ensure that the very best results were achieved for both of my teenage daughters. Both of my girls actually enjoyed having braces and never complained at all about any appointment. There were several times that my daughters had appointments when I was unable to be there with them. I was confident that they were in good hands with everyone in the office. The girls enjoyed every visit! I would highly recommend Dr. Ripley and his entire staff to every parent whose child may need any type of orthodontic work!

Amanda P. from Indianapolis, IN (Source: Yelp)

★★★★★

I seriously cannot say enough about Dr Ripley and his staff. From the moment I walked into their office I knew I couldn’t possibly pick another doctor! They are friendly and compassionate and kind. The entire atmosphere from start to finish is fun and inviting. Ortho treatment can be a little rough on the young ones, but Dr Ripley’s high energy, never ending smile and amazing bed side manner are so comforting! I seriously cannot say enough about this office!! I have two kids that have gone through ortho treatment here (one still in the in between phase) and I can’t imagine ever going anywhere else! If there were 100 stars to pass out they would easily get all of them! I am fully involved and enacted through all of the treatment and as a parent that can be critical (especially if you have a teenager). Prices are competitive and they work with you on payment plans that fit your budget. Their communication system and patient portal is so user friendly. Wishing he could clone himself and his staff for every form of health care- is this possible? 🙂 if you or a little need ortho- you HAVE TO go to Ripley!

Tim C. from San Francisco, CA (Source: Yelp)

★★★★★

If I could I would give Dr. Ripley ,techs and staff 10 stars.They are a group of individuals that have come together to bring you the finest care for you and your family. The techs are wonderful and caring they really take any anxiety or fears away you might have had about wearing braces. Dr. Ripley is the finest in his field! He has the gentle touch.I believe he would rather work than play golf.The best thing I received from the office visits was friendship. You won’t want your braces off when its time.Thanks Doc!

Since the consultation, everyone there was nice and friendly. Everything was explained perfectly. During the treatment NOTHING was hard or stressful or confusing. I highly recommend this place to make your smile prettier. ♥️♥️

★★★★★

Highly recommend !! Friendly and accommodating scheduling staff! We have felt like family since day 1, our kids have no fear and enjoy going. He has totally transformed our daughter’s smile. We have family driving an hour just to come to this office bc of Dr Ripley and his staff.

★★★★★

Have absolutely loved coming to see Dr. Vaughn and Dr. Ripley! Even though it’s a bit of a drive for me, the staff at this office make up for it 110%. Everyone has been absolutely wonderful and accommodating since day 1. From the front of house office taking my countless questions over the phone to the clinical team in the back keeping me updated on their lives and my teeth, I truly couldn’t have found a better ortho group! I really enjoy coming to every appointment, my only complaint is that I always seem to leave with sore teeth haha

★★★★★

I love this office. I worked in the orthodontic field for 12 years and with several Doctors. I know from watching Dr. Ripley with the patients and staff he’s good at what he does and is good to his staff. My two boys really like coming here. If I ever chose to return to orthodontics, this is where I’d want to work!

★★★★★

Everyone is WONDERFUL at Dr. Ripley’s office! Whether we go in for our monthly check-ups or we have something that needs to be fixed, everyone is always friendly and smiling. They always take the time to explain what they did and what the next steps are at EVERY visit. Both of my sons have been patients there and I would recommend this office to anyone!

★★★★★

When it came time to get braces for our children, Dr. Ripley’s office was highly recommended and we weren’t disappointed. My son and daughter went there and the staff is very friendly and helpful. Also, the office is very clean. Dr. Ripley was very good about answering all of our questions and concerns and he did great work – both of our kids have beautiful smiles. We had a very good experience with Dr. Ripley’s office and I would recommend this place to anyone if their kids need braces

My experience at Ripley’s orthodontist was incredible! Previously I had gone to another orthodontist for my braces and had a terrible experience there. Years later I went to ripley’s for Invisalign to restraighten my teeth and had the best care there! My Invisalign had not worked out in favor with my teeth and the doctor transitioned me into braces. The entire process was so easy thanks to the staff and their updated technology! I went to ripely’s for approximately 6 months and I would recommend them to anyone looking for an orthodontist! Overall a great experience with them!

Dr. Ripley and his crew of amazing ladies offer smiles, helpful advice, and comfort throughout your sometimes painful orthodontia visits. They make sure that each patient understands what they are doing and why they are doing it. Not only will everyone remember your name upon each visit, they will also recall what subjects you are studying, who is in your family, and what position you play in sports. They communicate well with each other and their patients, creating a worry-free environment. I had every procedure in the book done as a teenager, and have nothing but great things to say about it all!

To say that Dr. Ripley and his staff are wonderful would be an understatement. As parents we seek the best for our children when choosing a doctor, dentist, eye doctor, etc…, and the same should be true for finding the best orthodontist. I couldn’t be more pleased with our decision to put our trust in Dr. Ripley. His gentle disposition and humor coupled with his professionalism and dedication to providing the highest quality of orthodontia have made our experience very positive. Not only do we appreciate Dr. Ripley, but his staff as well. His “right hand ladies” who assist are just as friendly and caring. I’ve come to know many of them as they have provided care not only for my two teens but my husband as well. Dr. Ripley and his assistants take time to meet with me at the end of each appointment to share what was done and to explain how treatment is progressing. Lastly, the ladies at the reception desk are the heart and soul of his practice. They are among the nicest, caring and most professional office staff I’ve ever had the pleasure of speaking with. Most importantly, they always, always have a smile to share and make one feel very welcomed! We’ve been with Dr. Ripley for a number of years, and I can say without hesitation that we are treated and regarded like family, not as patients. It is with pleasure that I very highly recommend Dr. Ripley for your orthodontics.

I’ve been with Ripley Orthodontics since I first got braces in middle school. I’m now 24 and still occasionally returning for things such as retainer repair. They have always upheld great patient care. The staff is always very friendly. And I couldn’t be more satisfied with the service. Highly recommend!

I heard about Dr Ripley from my dentist. I wanted to get braces even though I was in my early 50’s. I went to his office on the south side of Indy. I had braces put on within a few visits. I went back for adjustments every 5-6 weeks. I had my braces on for two years. I have retainers I sleep in now. I had such crooked teeth before and now, I’m proud to smile. I should also point out, within two months of getting my braces, I moved to Dayton, Ohio. I kept driving back for my adjustments even though I had moved away. I just did a return visit because I had broken one of my retainers. I got a new one that day, no worries about when I would get it. It’s never too late to have a pretty smile. Dr Ripley and his staff are the BEST.

My 13-year old daughter was told recently by our dentist that she has a resorption on one of her upper left molars and that the tooth will eventually crumble. The options (a root canal or pulling the tooth followed by a bridge or implant) all seemed scary to my anxious little girl. We happened to have a routine orthodontic follow-up today with Dr. Ripley, who we’ve known and loved for 7 years now. We showed him the x-rays and God love him, that sweet man spent nearly half an hour educating, advising, and reassuring us. His expertise combined with his willingness to share his personal dental experiences was incredibly helpful to me (as I now better understand what questions to ask the endodontist next week) and was just so, so comforting to little Julia. She walked out of the office with a big smile and lots of hope for the future (as opposed to tears and panic attacks a few days ago). For all children—and especially anxious ones—there is a mental, emotional, and relational component to healthcare that cannot be neglected. When a child feels respected, cared for, and loved by the people who serve them medically, the outcome can be a wonderful experience for everybody involved. Thank you, Dr. Ripley and staff, for your affection for my little girl all these years. You deliver world-class orthodontic care and we are so very grateful for all you do.

And the staff is the best of any office I’ve ever dealt with. Feel confident that you will get the best care and get fantastic results! I could not be happier. Thank you so much!!
