"I have been using removable appliances for over 25 years and I can't recall the last time I needed a remake. If I send NorthStar a good set of models and a proper wax bite, the appliance always fits - always! I've worked with other ortho labs and NorthStar is the best!"

- Dr. Robert E. Craven (Liberty, MO)
