Real Adult Patients Benefit from Adult Braces

“When my regular dentist suggested that I could benefit from braces, as a senior citizen, I thought, “Oh great, one more joy of aging.” I studied Main Line Magazine’s Top Dentist issue, where I found Dr. Hendrix, and after selecting Hendrix Orthodontics to do my treatment, my worries actually turned into a delightfully pleasant experience. Dr. Hendrix is a well-educated, skillful, and warm professional. He carefully explained my individualized treatment plan and throughout its implementation, he was very sensitive to the comfort and concerns of a more mature patient than one usually associates with braces. His work is meticulous. His dental associates and office staff were always caring and efficient. His modern office is immaculate and runs like clockwork. My appointments were scheduled to my convenience and ran exactly on time. Where else do you find that consideration in today’s world? The final outcome of my orthodontic treatment – a better bite and better dental health checkups. But the most pleasing aspect has been the comments from my friends and colleagues when they remark on my beautiful smile! I heartily recommend Dr. Hendrix to anyone considering orthodontia, no matter what age you happen to be.”


“As a baby boomer looking for the perfect smile, I cannot say enough about how happy I am with my orthodontic results! I had a few dental challenges for Dr. Hendrix to overcome, and he did so with flying colors. The entire staff is professional, courteous and friendly, making the monthly visits easy and pleasurable. I highly recommend Hendrix Orthodontics to anyone, at any age, looking for the perfect smile!”
