We have had a wonderful experience with Dr. Belli’s office! I have had both of my boys get braces and even prior appliances to correct bad habits and Dr. Belli and his staff have worked with us every step of the way to ensure that my boys’ smiles were perfect. - Katherine D.

Dr. Belli and his staff are amazing. It has been over two years since I got my braces off and my teeth still look amazing. Every time I’ve been in the office his whole staff has been enthusiastic and helpful. Best service in town! - Jonathan M.

Dr. Belli and his staff are awesome – very friendly and accommodating. One year, during the Fourth of July holiday weekend and the night before we were supposed to leave on vacation, a wire broke on my younger son’s braces. Dr. Belli left his family gathering and met us at his office to fix the wire so my son wouldn’t be uncomfortable during our trip. - Jami C.

Both of our children are patients of Dr. Belli. I can’t say enough about how pleased my husband and I have been with their treatment! Dr. Belli and his staff have made the orthodontic experience as positive as possible. It is truly a pleasure when your child doesn’t mind going to the orthodontist! The staff is always friendly, organized, and helpful. We always leave an appointment knowing exactly where our children are in their treatment plan and what to expect. - Kara S.

Best Smile Award! Both of our daughters received “best smile award” at two different high schools! And they truly do have the most beautiful smiles. Everyone who works in the office is extremely friendly and helpful. We couldn’t have asked for a better experience or outcome for our daughters. Highly recommend Belli & Streit Orthodontics. - Tom K.
