What People Are Saying

I don't know where I would be without this group. All 3 of my children have gorgeous smiles thanks to the doctors and staff at Forwood, Christie and Drane Orthodontics. From the start, they made it easy for the kids to feel comfortable in their care. Appointments were convenient and prompt. 2 convenient locations-1 at Strath Haven Middle School. My children could walk on their own during school to get an adjustment and be back in class in just 10-15 minutes. I could always count on the staff to be kind and considerate and to just brighten my day. During the Pandemic, they initiated strict protocols to enhance safety. I felt my children were very safe. A++ for this group!  -Jennifer

I can’t say enough good things about Forwood, Drane, & Christie Orthodontics. The place is immaculate, attractive and inviting, and exceptionally well-run. The administrative and clinical teams are professional, warm, and client-focused. I dreaded the search for an orthodontic practice for our daughter but from the very first contact I knew we’d found the right place and in the year since that first contact we’ve NEVER been disappointed. Not once. These folks could do seminars on how to treat clients/families and their work is careful and flawless. No kidding, and I’d be seriously remiss if it didn’t mention Tracy whose smile you can actually FEEL through the phone and whose humor never ceases to bring a smile to MY face. (Everyone there is amazing but she’s the one I talk to/see most often. My kiddo likes everyone she’s encountered.) It is SO clear that these good folks care and want the best for their patients. I’d (and have) recommend them to anyone. -Christopher

We can’t say enough wonderful things about Dr Christie, Dr Drane, and their amazing staff. Such a great group of caring people. The took great care of both of my children. The staff is so accommodating and friendly. My schedule can be quite difficult to manage so the option to have the kids walk over to the Wallingford office from the middle school was priceless. My kids teeth look amazing. Absolutely perfect now that their treatment is done. We had a slight mix up with my youngest’s retainer color. It was fixed immediately the receptionists were more upset then I was that she was upset on her “debanding” day. My daughter said she would deal with the color mix up and they wouldn’t hear of it. They wanted her to be happy above all. Once again the staff took great care of her. It takes a special talent to keep moody teenagers happy. They have a staff filled with that talent. - Alissa
