What Our Patients Are Saying About Us

stars
I came to Wazio Orthodontics when I moved back to IL from out of state and I had to transfer my account because I was already in the middle of my Invisalign treatment. Jackie at the front desk was super helpful when I had to fill out a ton of forms required by Invisalign to initiate the account transfer. In fact, every single employee at Wazio is warm and welcoming and has treated me with nothing but kindness from the moment I stepped through their door. Dr. Wazio was also flexible with me towards the end of my pregnancy and shortly after I had my baby by agreeing to virtual appointments when I couldn’t commit to getting to the office in person. I would highly recommend Wazio Orthodontics if you’re looking for an ortho!

Here at Wazio my tooth journey was easy. never were my braces or retainers painful, I had both an expander and two sets of retainers. All sets were great although I do prefer the full plastic ones over the metal bars!

I have been receiving care at Wazio Orthodontics since I was a child. Every time I return, I am floored and absolutely thrilled with the results I receive. After having braces twice and many rounds of retainers after oral surgery, Dr. Wazio and his team go above and beyond. Dr. Wazio's staff is kind, timely, and caring. Further, Dr. Wazio has transformed my teeth and given me a smile that I am so confident and proud to show off. I will always recommend this office to all looking for a talented, smart, and lovely team. Thank you everyone for all that you do!

I've been going to Dr. Wazio for over the past 10 years. He fixed my overbite and straightened my teeth with braces. There's also been times when he has made an emergency trip to the office to fix a broken wire when I had braces. This showed his dedication and commitment to his patients and his business. I'm very glad I went to Dr. Wazio to get my smile fixed! His team is very friendly and great. I would definitely recommend him for an ortho in the area!

Nothing but good things to say about Wazio Orthodontics! I went to three different orthodontists in the area a few years ago for consultations for my son. I am so happy we chose Wazio. Currently three of my children are receiving orthodontic care there. The staff is wonderful, and the results are fantastic. Plus, they are great supporters of our community.

I've been going to Dr. Wazio since I was 14 and 8 years later, I still prefer to go to him. He is truly the best when it comes to his work and his connections with the patients and staff. Both him and the staff are very courteous and helpful. I believe they all go above and beyond to make the patients satisfied with their visit when they leave. Thank you Dr. Wazio and Staff for always perfecting my smile! I owe all the compliments I get to you!

I am currently taking two of my sons (7 and 10 yr. old) to Dr. Wazio for their first phase of treatment. Since the initial consultation we have been very satisfied with his recommendations for treatment options. Appointment times have been easily scheduled and reasonable payment plans were available. The staff has been friendly at each visit and have answered my many questions. Both boys have already shown much improvement with their bites and overall appearance in a short few months. I'm glad I decided to visit Dr. Wazio while the boys were younger to learn about the various options that were right for each of my children.

All three of our children have had braces from Dr. Wazio and his staff. Our experience was excellent each time. The staff was always friendly, respectful, professional, and accommodating. It was a VERY rare occasion that the kids needed to miss school for an orthodontic appointment! We have been impressed countless times by Dr. Wazio's care, expertise, and attention to detail while attending to our children!
