Brendan Connaughton (15, Got braces on at 12. Got them off at 14.)

I wanted braces because my teeth were all over the place. When I looked at other people, their teeth were so much straighter. I got to see my brother go through the process of getting braces at ARCH Orthodontics, so it made me more comfortable there. I ended up seeing Dr. Chase just like my brother. He treated me like an adult and was so kind to me during checkups, making jokes to make me laugh. When I look back at what my teeth looked like before braces, the difference is shocking. I’m so glad I did it!
