“Both of my daughters have been treated by Dr. Vaysman. My oldest daughter had her braces removed a few weeks ago and her teeth look great. The younger one is still in treatment. She was afraid in the beginning but Dr. Vaysman and her staff made her feel extremely comfortable. Now she loves going for her adjustment appointments and runs into her friends from school in the office. I would highly recommend Dr. Vaysman to other parents; I think that she has a gentle approach which makes children feel at ease with her.” -Victoria Solovun
