Dr Marcel is great to work with. When we originally had our appt. with Sophia, he said oh she's fine she won't need braces until about 13 or so, I said well can we still put them on because even though her bite is great, they are crowding and she'd like to feel better about her smile. He was right, she was only in need of a one phase but we requested two phases, he said sure let's straighten them out now if you want. 9 months later her teeth were beautiful and for four years they were nice, then we started phase 2 at 12 as she lost all of her teeth. Sashee needed then at age 7 because of her bite, two years later they were perfect. Now she's 11 and he said phase 2 would start January, low and behold she wanted them early, October to be exact. He said sure that's fine, a few months won't make a difference. Dr. Marcel has advised us appropriately, he didn't want to set us up right away with braces if it wasn't necessary, I so appreciate that. He has listened to our every concern, question and simple chatting. We appreciate Dr. Marcel as a professional as well and a genuinely nice man. Thank you soooooo much!! And in addition, his staff is priceless and they stay at his office for a long time because he sure has something special going on in his Livermore office. I feel like I would love to go back to school just to work at such a wonderful environment :-) lol.
