In response to the dentist's response below, it seems like they are alluding to the fact that I didn't show up for an appointment which is not the case at all. Additionally, as I noted, they did not even communicate when trays were available let alone set up an appointment for a retainer scan which is why I didn't even realize it was something they should have offered until my current dentist noted that. Thank goodness there are good dentists out there though this is not one. Additionally, they mentioned they love invisalign and I'm sure they love the money they make but they were quick to blame their inability to move my teeth to either of our satisfaction on invisalign rather than take accountability. What professional complains like that to a patient? South Capital Smile Center does. And I would ask anyone reading these reviews to note how they try to turn this around on me saying my compliance was compromised. You will not find a more compliant patient than me, I wore those trays to the exact specifications until they stopped making any movements in my teeth and the dentist stopped notifying me when trays were available (leaving me to wear old trays for an extra week or two which is, by the way, disgusting). I went to South Capitol Smile Center years ago for invisalign. They never did get my teeth straight and at a certain point, as the treatment dragged on and they stopped even calling me to let me know my next trays were available, I stopped. They did not even offer or go ahead and make retainers for me, which would have been standard good practice (or maybe they did and never called me to let me know they were at the office). Anyway, if you want to hear your dentist complain and blame invisalign and to not be communicated with regarding when your trays are available, and to not be provided the entirety of your treatment, choose South Capitol Smile Center. My dentist now was shocked they didn't do the retainers at the very least.

I highly recommend.Dr. Samaddar and her staff Mike, Jobena and Paola. Over the years they have become almost family to me. This is super modern dental care that fixed my many dental issues, and also created a new smile for me which in many ways changed how I feel about myself. If you're seeking excellent dental care, this is the place to go. Don't hesitate, my treatment included many dental repairs and Invisalign. The outcome is life changing go for it, you are worth it.
