What Our Patients Say About Dr. Cucalon

Read Dr. Cucalon's Reviews

Great team here at Cucalon! They fast tracked a straighter smile for me just in time for my wedding. After, Dr. Cucalon, knew we could get my teeth even straighter, so we started a couple refining rounds and I couldn’t be happier. They are a passionate group and serious about results.

Cucalon Orthodontics is first class all the way. It has been our experience with all four of our children to be professionally taken care of with a super friendly staff. The office is innovative and efficient. Dr. Cucalon and his staff are cutting edge. All four of our kids have beautiful smiles thanks to Cucalon Orthodontics.

I’m seeing Dr. Cucalon for Invisalign. I am so impressed with how thoroughly the process was explained and now, as I am nearing completion, I can say it has gone so smoothly with terrific results. Everyone in the office is very friendly, knowledgeable and professional. A huge thanks to Dr. Cucalon and his team!

My son has been seeing Dr. Cucalon for his braces. His braces were done in two phases so I think we’ve been seeing Dr. Cucalon for about 4 years now. Work is top notch. Staff is very friendly. They also try to fit you in ASAP if there’s an emergency. My son had two incidents where the wire popped out (his fault, not the staff’s) and I was able to get an appointment the next business day.

Wendy H.

Two-Phase Treatment Patient

Both my son and daughter had their orthodontic work done at Dr Cucalon. This is a very straight-forward experience. Pricing is clear. Expectations are discussed right from the beginning. No surprises. We couldn’t be happier with the outcome. Everyone in the office is top notch! Absolutely check them out!

Dr. Cucalon and staff are incredibly patient and understanding when it comes to working with kids. We used another orthodontist with our older child and were referred to Dr. Cucalon for our younger child. We couldn’t be happier wIth the switch!

I’m currently seeing Doctor Cucalon for invisalign. He and his staff are always super nice and accommodating. I once had the appointment date wrong in my cal and showed up on the wrong date – they happened to be there and took me in that morning! All in all I can’t recommend Doctor Cucalon and his staff enough.

We have used Dr. Cucalon for braces all 3 of our children and even myself for Invisalign. Everyone in both offices are kind and gentle and we have been very happy with our results!

Dr Cucalon and staff are fantastic. Appointments are quick and convenient. They are super flexible and accommodate weekend appointments as well. Have had two children in braces here and have had a great experience.

I saw Dr. Cucalon for invisalign and I love my teeth now! I also loved working with him and the staff there. They were very attentive, patient, personal, and efficient. When the time comes for my daughter to get braces, I will be heading back.

Courtney G.

Invisalign Patient

I was thinking of getting Invisalign a few years back before my wedding. My friend referred me to Dr. Cucalon telling me I won’t regret a visit with him. After first meeting Dr. Cucalon I felt very comfortable about my decision to get started with Invisalign. He was very welcoming, truly listened to my desires on how I wanted my teeth to look, and did not rush the process. He made sure I loved my smile & let me extremely happy with the final product. I’d recommend Dr. Cucalon as he works hard to make sure each of his clients are pleased.
