If you’re like me, it’s difficult to make a decision on dental care, or medical care in general. There’s so many options, and many friends and family willing to give opinions on their experiences.  Which is helpful, but doesn’t always pan out for my needs or the needs of my family.  I didn’t grow up in the Mobile area.  This team has an office in Mobile, and an office in Daphne, which first appealed to me as well as the fact they are in my insurance network.  I grew up being self concious about my smile. I had an overbite, and the teeth that were visible during my smile weren’t straight. I never had braces, and although I had a good dental provider, the solution was to extract teeth over what my family could afford for proper correction.  My youngest son inherited my genes in the teeth department. At 37 years old, and when my son turned 14, it was time on the advice of my new local dentist to have a consultation……..I was nervous, but excited for my son.  I felt if it came to a financial decision, I would at least be able to sacrifice my own goal, for him to enjoy life with a better smile. It didn’t hurt to ask I thought. We started care with a good orthodontist, who ended up retiring early into our treatment. This prompted our search which brought us to SAL Ortho.  I regret not starting our treatment with Dr. Langley, Dr. McDuffie, and Dr. O’Neil.  This team, and thier staff are incredible.  The associates are more than friendly, the embrace you as family. The Doctors are more than experts, they bring professionalism to a whole new level. Each Doctor is meticulous in the treatment, and educate patients on exactly what they are doing, what they have planned, and how they are going to give you the greatest smile you could ever imagine. I was thrilled for my son, but when I saw how affordable, and how Dr. Langley had a specific plan to give me a smile I always thought wouldn’t be possible, I was ready to commit. My oldest son just learned he would need treatment, and there was never a doubt who we would consult. Today, my youngest son and I had our braces removed, and we signed up my oldest son to begin his journey. For anyone who has ever considered cosmetic dentistry, but thought it was too late, or too expensive, or if you have a child who may need to consider treatment, you owe it to yourself and your child to enlist the services of the best team in South Alabama. Don’t wait another day, week, year……time ticks on, and the only thing that grows is your regret that you didn’t do it sooner.  I’m not being paid for this review, well maybe not monetarily…….I and my son were paid with a wonderful smile that we will enjoy for the rest of our life, and that to me is priceless…

I wish my Ortho would’ve been this amazing! The staff are wonderful, the facility is clean and up to date, and Dr. Langley was great with my 7 year old! It’s not often you have a Dr ask the child if THEY have any questions but he did (twice!) and it was so great! You can tell they love what they do here, and I am so happy our dentist referred us here for Ortho care. I love that they are a Christian based and it’s apparent in everything they do. Thank you for a wonderful experience! Even though Ortho care isn’t at the top of everyone’s “favorite thing to do” list, I am confident SOA will make it a pleasant experience for our family. So far, after just one visit, we are impressed!!!

I just want to say that this office and Dr. Langley were so great with my son. He did the frenotomy on my son. He took us even though we were late and they were already closed. There was a complication and Dr. Langley was with us the whole time texting and calling at 2 in the morning to help us with the issue. He helped us find a Dr (Dr. Wallender) in town that could fix the issue. I am so greatful that he helped us find what we needed and get the right source of the problem. He was checking in on us to see if Logan was ok. I am so greatful for Dr. Langley and for what he did for us! Great office and great customer service!

The staff at South Alabama Orthodontics are amazing. Everybody at the office is so friendly and caring. I had a lot of questions and concerns throughout my treatment and they listen and patiently answer every one of them. I was somewhat of a difficult case but everyone there made me feel at ease. I truly appreciate everything that Dr. Langley, Dr. O’Neil and the staff has done for me. I highly recommend SAO! I will definitely miss seeing their faces every few weeks.

My experience with South Alabama Orthodontics in Daphne has been by far the best experience in my whole life. First the staff, by far the best staff I have encountered in my life. They all know what to do and they treat you like you are family. Second, having my braces has changed my life. I was made fun of, and felt so ugly before my braces. But within two and a half years I could smile, feel beautiful and be very proud of myself. Not only has SAO done all these things, but they have gone above and beyond the standards of a being a normal Orthodontic office. I love all of the staff, thank y’all for changing my life! Much love-Belle

I have seen Dr. Langley twice now and just got my braces on last week. All of the staff members are friendly and personable and Dr. Langley is AMAZING. His mission statement is visible through his entire practice. Thank you South Alabama Orthodontics! I am so incredibly thankful to be on the road to better health with the guidance of Dr. Langley and his office.

My two years with South Alabama Orthodontics have been wonderful. Everyone was so nice, they’re super organized, answered all my questions, and I always left the office with a smile. They made me feel perfectly comfortable, making the typically uncomfortable experience of getting braces very enjoyable. I’m so thankful to SAO for giving me the beautiful smile that I will wear for the rest of my life

Wonderful experience at SAO! Amazing results by two highly skilled Orthodontists! Professional yet fun! Love the welcoming environment and staff. I know Dr. Langley has traveled the country teaching hundreds of other Orthodontists some of his techniques! They are family oriented, very generous and involved in the community. Grateful for SAO and I’d recommend them to everyone!

My 11 year old daughter started seeing them 3 years ago for an expander; so, when the time came for braces I knew they were the place for her! They made her and me feel comfortable and acknowledged and eased any anxiety from us both! You can tell they care! As bad as my anxiety with dentist is I chose them for my adult braces as well! All of the staff are friendly, knowledgeable, and kind! I am almost 3 months into my braces journey , my daughter is 2 months in, and we have been overwhelming pleased with our results so far! I highly recommend SOA!

Amazing people with amazing results. I was a difficult case that required braces as well as jaw surgery. From the beginning, Dr Langley explained the entire course of treatment, what would be involved and gave a more in depth explanation of the jaw surgery I would have than the actually surgeon who did the procedure. The day of my surgery, both Dr Langley and Dr O’Neil, took the time to drive to Mobile and visit me in the hospital. From day one, the drs and staff made me feel like family. I am thrilled with the results and actually miss seeing the staff for my monthly appointments.

Suuuuuper Friendly Ortho! Front office staff have very high standards, are extremely organized, great with follow ups, reminders, and over all patient experience. Doctors are great with the kids, very fun friendly and they are very relational, great personalities! We are gonna not only miss them, but it’ll be hard to find a new Ortho that compares.

South Alabama Orthodontics has been WONDERFUL to our family, from the moment we went in for our first consultation, to the day my daughter had her braces removed. The staff is very friendly and very helpful. They were great about scheduling appointments to fit our needs. In our case, my daughter, Carley Hamric, usually either had a volleyball practice or a game that she couldn’t miss; the receptionist was AWESOME in scheduling around both. South Alabama Orthodontics always went above & beyond than most! I used a different orthodontist for my oldest two children and there is NO comparison between the two! I wish SAO would have been in the Daphne/Fairhope area 15 years ago!! I cannot say enough good things about the doctors & staff at SAO and I will always recommend SAO to my friends and family. Thank you for my daughter’s BEAUTIFUL smile! Tina Hamric

I’ve been a patient with this business for a few years now and this year, my braces are coming off very soon. I have nothing bad to say about none of the people that work here. All are very friendly and professional and I greatly appreciate them for giving me the upmost love and respect with treating the patients, like family. My teeth looks fantastic and I just want to thank the workers for such a beautiful job!!!! I’d recommend anyone here. Dr. Rick & Dr Shane are great people and they always make me feel welcomed with open arms!!!!

I have had to have a lot of work done, with this being my third round of braces. South Alabama Orthodontics never ceases to disappoint me. My whole family has come here for their braces! We wouldn’t have it any other way. The orthodontists take their time and make sure each patient is confident and happy. They do their job right the first time! The staff is friendly and informative. I highly recommend them!

Both gentlemen, as well as their staff, made a world of difference for my child. They were very kind, caring, and compassionate. They allowed us to take as much time as we needed to allow her and I to be comfortable with her procedure. They were incredibly generous with their time and resources, and it made a world of difference for my daughter, and our family. We drove from Mississippi just to see Dr. Langley, and each person we encountered while we were there was extremely professional. I highly recommend both of these gentlemen! They genuinely care about what they do, and every patient they see.

Well I’ve been going to South Alabama Orthodontics in Mobile for almost 2 years now, and I can’t say enough about the practice! I love the girls in the back they know me by name, always greet me with a smile, and I always feel warm and welcome when I come there. As far as the Dr’s, I know I’m getting the best treatment for me! I’m comfortable with Dr. Langley or Dr. Oneil, and they have my teeth looking good! TBH I actually enjoy wearing braces, and I look forward to having my braces tighten up every 6 weeks, and I like wearing my rubber bands weird huh?! lol! Anyways, you can’t go wrong with choosing this group, they will have your smile looking good!

I have enjoyed the staff at SAO from the moment I first came in for my consultation!! They have a fun yet professional staff. They also have state of the art equipment and most importantly, they schedule their appointments appropriately. It’s rare for me to have to wait for long periods of time and that is something very important to me!!! I had a few complicated things that they informed me of from the beginning but they properly prepared me from start to finish!!! I absolutely love this office and I would choose them again if it were necessary!!
