  • review rating 5  My dentist recommended Dr. Fotovat. I still consulted with a couple of other Orthodontists but it was clear he was the top choice. He took the time to answer all questions with regard to his best recommendation. However, he was open and willing to work with me (without pressure or issue) when I chose a little bit of a different route. Really great experience with the process and staff overall and I am happy I chose to go to Dr Fotovat.

  • review rating 5  Overall, I had a great experience at this orthodontics! All the staff members were so friendly and the environment was comfortable. I remember coming in to get my braces put on for the first time feeling nervous and scared. However, Dr. Fotovat and Jojo made me feel safe throughout the whole treatment. I ended up with a smile I love 🙂

  • review rating 5  I held off on braces for over two decades because I was terrified of getting teeth pulled. They don't pull them here of course and that would be a different review. I was referred here from my dentist next door to them. You never know with referrals but this place truly has earned my appreciation. All the staff are wonderful. Dr. Fotovat himself is a very outstanding orthodontist but also such a nice and patient person. I was anticipating 2+ years with these train tracks but I only had to wear them 1.5 yrs. teeth look great, I'm incredibly happy. It felt great to hit the it's over gong!

He knows his job very well and can get your teeth fixed in no time. My teeth look so good and I have been getting so many compliments. I feel good about my smile also.

  • review rating 5  I cannot express how great they are! Great customer service, super clean, no wait time, easy process, you name it, everything is amazing! Not once did I have any pain, any discomfort, nothing! They treat you great, beyond exceptional, always have a family movie for entertainment and music, and have some type of give away going on: Disneyland tickets, gift baskets, and other great prices. I drive over an hour to see Dr. Fotovat; his practice is worth the drive, the traffic, and the time. Trust me, BEST dentistry you will ever experience.
