From the moment we walked into Dr. Black’s office …we felt at home. Dr. Black and her staff have a wonderful family atmosphere and their work is excellent. I would highly recommend Appalachian Orthodontics to everyone.

As a teenager I never had braces since my teeth were “straight enough.” Once I entered dental school I realized I wanted my teeth to be perfect. I talked to Dr. Black about correcting my smile and she was more than happy to help and gave me the confidence that it would be an easy fix.

Dr. Black adjusted each individual tooth to be sure they were perfect. She was caring towards me as a patient, and always wanted my feedback on how the treatment was going. You can tell she is very compassionate about her work. My parents have even noticed how much straighter my teeth look. I would recommend her to anyone considering orthodontic work.
