We searched three different orthodontists for my daughter. When we met Dr Sandman he asked her questions and dealt directly with her versus the other doctors who dealt directly with me. She was absolutely smitten with him and also loved that he had a reward point system. He is always very friendly and has not rushed anything with the process of her path to braces. The fact that he wanted to talk directly with her was so surprising to me yet makes all the sense in the world and I really respect Dr Sandman for that. ~Wendy, Cresskill
