Dr. Polgrean and her staff changed my life forever. In a mere 15 months, they had improved my smile to almost perfection! I cannot recommend Appletree Orthodontics enough! If I could show you the before and after pictures I would! True miracle workers they are. I am now healthier, happier and 1000% more confident! Check them out folks, they won’t disappoint! #Blessed”
