I am in love with my teeth. I had a Canine stuck in my palate, and I am 39 years old. I did not think it could be done, but Dr. Rizkallah brought my canine into place and gave me a beautiful smile. I really can't believe it is me when I look in the mirror. It was not easy, but it really was worth it. Dr. Riz had to open my gums and glue a brace onto my tooth and then drag it into position with the rest of the braces. It took about a year and a half. Thanks Dr. Rizkallah for a job well done. I will miss our interactions. See you at my retainer checkup. Lina

I saw Dr. Riz because he is the only Center of Excellence in Lingual Braces in Massachusetts. I am a professional (attorney) and I could not do braces on the outside of my teeth. However, I knew I needed to fix my teeth. I was impressed by the consultation, treatment plan, plan execution, and I was thrilled with my results. Honestly, it was easier than I thought it could possibly be. Dr. Riz runs a tight ship. He is very efficient. And his effectiveness is certainly seen in the outcome of my teeth. My dentist is very pleased as well. Thanks Dr. Riz.

I brought my daughter to Dr. Rizkallah after watching my sister struggle with her daughter (my niece( in braces somewhere else. My daughter was done with her braces within a year, and my niece is nowhere near finished. I keep telling my sister to move my niece to Dr. Rizkallah's office, but of course it will cost more to do that, so she does not want to. I'm so glad I did not get stuck at a bad office. I would recommend Dr. Riz to anyone who values their time and money. He is really great to work with and I appreciate him even more when I see what my niece has had to deal with.

Great Price. Great Doc. Great Location. Great Experience.
Both of my Daughters have had Braces with Dr. Riz. Both look great!

The office is impeccable. I mean incredible!

The price is lower than other offices.

I was shocked by the quality of the xrays....didn't have to send us anywhere else for xrays like other offices.

And at the end, the kids got their teeth cleaned and bleached. They look Great!!

Seriously....a great experience.

Dr. Rizkallah was the right choice for me.

I was an adult with a gigantic lower jaw. I wanted to fix this jaw appearance problem and have a normal bite. I went to meet Dr. Riz and he told me that he would have my case completed in 12 months. I went through the braces and jaw surgery with Dr. Rizkallah (and the fabulous Dr. Mehra-Surgeon), and I was done in 12 months and a half!

How is it that Dr. Rizkallah could do it in 12 months and other Docs said 3 years? My teeth are perfect, my jaw looks great. I could not be happier.

The day I said goodbye to Dr. Rizkallah, I really wanted to tell him how much I appreciated him. I don't think I really expressed how much gratitude I have for his skills and work. It was too awkward at that last visit to just hug him....but I still want to. So I figured I would just write it here:

Dr. Rizkallah, I will remember you for the rest of my life. You changed my life in ways you cannot know. From the bottom of my heart, Thank You so very Very Much.

I had braces when I was a teenager, but did not wear my retainer. I really disliked my smile and wanted to correct my teeth. After my sister successfully finished treatment with Dr. Riz, I made an appointment myself. I cannot express how thankful I am to Dr. Riz and his staff for giving me the best smile I've ever had. It is a bit difficult to be an adult with braces, but Dr. Riz takes the time to explain everything that is going on and what will happen between visits and he was honest with me up front about how long it would take. I would do it over & over again if needed simply because of the care Dr. Riz & his wonderful staff gave me. It took me just over a year (which is what I was promised) and I still can't believe how great my teeth look. Thank you, Dr. Riz!

I highly recommend Dr. Rizkallah. From the moment you step into the office, you feel confident that you are in good hands. Judging from my experience, that confidence is definitely not misplaced.

I made an initial appointment thinking that I would need Invisalign or some other relatively minor intervention to straighten a couple of teeth. Dr. Riz explained to me why I would benefit from braces instead. Of course I wasn't happy to hear this, but at the time I understood that he was probably right and in hindsight I'm even surer of that. The good news was that he thought I could get my braces off in four months. When I told a few people afterward, they rolled their eyes and said that four months was extremely short and that orthodontists always low-ball the estimates to encourage you to sign up for the treatment. I understand this is common, but something about Dr. Riz told me he was giving me his best estimate. Four months later, my braces were off.

Everyone I met on the staff was extremely professional and competent, and friendly as well.

I came to Dr. Riz in February, 2009 for a consultation on orthodontia. As an adult patient with a public-facing job, it was important to me that the braces would be discreet. I opted for the lingual braces. We began treatment in July, 2009, and anticipated that it would take 14 months. The last brackets were removed in April, 2010, a full four months ahead of schedule.

During my treatment with Dr. Riz, I found his staff to be very professional, and helpful with insurance claims, etc. Appointments were kept, and I rarely if ever had to wait more than 5 minutes for adjustments. Dr. Riz is very easy to approach with questions about the treatments, why he is doing what he does--he is a excellent teacher. He uses state-of-the-art equipment (he is one of a handful of docs that offer the lingual braces), the office is modern and bright, easily accessible by T, and there is patient parking right outside his office (good luck finding a spot in Davis Sq. if you are visiting Harvard-Vanguard).

In conclusion, this is a first-rate practice, and when my daughters reach that age, I will be taking them to see Dr. Riz.

Dr. Riz is a pure professional. He not only gave me a very frank and clear consultation on the risks of Invisalign (I spent 6 months in braces instead of a year in Invisalign), but was extremely dedicated to delivering a great result.

I have almost never worked with somebody who was as good at their profession as Dr. Riz is at orthodontics.

Highly recommend to anybody considering orthodontia.

It was a pleasant surprise to find out that I DID NOT NEED INVISALIGN (or the cost of Invisalign) to fix my crooked front tooth. Instead Dr. Rizkallah used his Simple Aligner system on me. In 3 months, my front tooth was perfect!

I loved the results, the affordability, facilities, the service, and the convenient location.

Super Experience! I would recommend him to anyone needing a similar fix.

I am THRILLED with Dr. Rizkallah. Dr. Rizkallah said it would take 6 months to get the giant gap between my front teeth closed. It took 5 months! I am THRILLED.

I had the pleasure of working with Dr. Riz for my treatment this past year. I had visited several orthodontists over the past several years in several different cities. All told me the same thing; I needed a year of braces, double jaw surgery, and then six months to a year of braces again. Total treatment time: 18-24 months at least, possibly more. I couldn't commit to being in one place and on the same health insurance for that long and so I resigned myself to my uncomfortable bite and misaligned jaws.

When I moved to Boston I thought I would try a couple orthodontists here as I planned on being here for at least two years. I stumbled onto Dr. Riz and came in for a consultation. I was impressed because he said that he could have the treatment done in a year maximum, and his cost was significantly less than other orthodontists that I had visited. I figured that I would jump on it, had the braces put on while holding my breath and trying not think about spending a year of my early twenties in braces.

Fast forward six months and I had the surgery at BU, and the braces were off almost exactly one year after they were installed. Dr. Riz saw me almost once a week at the end of my treatment to speed things along and the results have been far beyond any expectations. My teeth were fairly straight beforehand, but now my jaws meet together properly and biting into a sandwich is feasible for the first time ever. Turns out you're supposed to be able to breathe through your nose! I thought I could until my upper jaw was moved to it's proper position. Talking, breathing, and eating...important aspects of anyone's life!...have all become easier and more natural.

If you are an adult and thinking about braces, either alone or with corrective jaw surgery, I would encourage you to meet with Dr. Riz. And I will say this about braces: living with them is nowhere near as bad as I envisioned at first. Maybe not fun, but they simply become a part of your life and I often forgot that I was wearing them!

Dr. Rizkallah made my orthodontic experience fun. He said it would take 8 months, and I was done in SIX MONTHS.

The price was better than other offices, and the results are exquisite.

Now I am sending my husband in for Invisalign.

Dr Mouhab Rizkallah is an artist and I am thrilled with my results. I went to see a number of orthodontists before I went to see him, and he reallly stood apart from the rest. I selected him to do my work because his reputation is clearly spectacular. Beyond that, when I went to meet hm, I was impressed by his explanations of my needs. No other doctor explained it as clearly to me as he did.

Even though I am an adult, I can honestly say that the day I got my braces off I had mixed feelings. On the one hand, I was thrilled to be done, but on the other hand, I really felt like I just changed my life and the people involved in that were about to say goodbye. Strange feeling, but I am thrilled with my teeth.

I can honestly say I have never had a better experience with any service provider or been happier with the results.

Dr. Rizkallah is a World-Class Orthodontist and a terrific human being.

I Love MY TEETH! I am so impressed by the process and the timing of it all.

They corrected my underbite in under a year, where other docs said it would take 2 1/2 years.

My teeth look great. My dentist was even shocked by the difference Dr. Riz made. He is so cool!

I went to see Dr. Rizkallah because he has a marvelous reputation. I was quite pleased to understand that my treatment was only going to take 5 months, and that I did not need braces to do it. He did not even use Invisalign.

He used Simple Aligners, which he designed. Simple Aligners are like Invisalign, but move your teeth faster.

I am thrilled with my results, and I am surprised at how little it cost.

My friend got Invisalign with Dr Rizkallah and had a terrific result.

I wanted to get Invisalign to fix my crooked teeth, but he said that he was "not willing" to treat my teeth with Invisalign. He pointed me to some braces options that were cool, but I really want Invisalign.

I begged him to try Invisalign on me, but he would not budge on it. He even said he was "sure I could find someone else to do Invisalign on me" but he would not even consider it.

What stinks is that I really trust his opinion, but I really don't want to do braces.

I guess I just have to mentally prepare myself for braces. I'm sure if I do what he says I will be making the right choice, but I wish it could be with Invisalign.

I found Dr. Riz after I had a number of consultations for Invisalign with different docs - some dentists, some orthodontists. He had written an article (http://www.realself.com/question/invisalign-real-limitations-orthodontist) on Invisalign that seemed to me that he knew what he was talking about. So I went to see the Dr. Riz for his opinion.

What I liked about him was that I could tell that he really knew what he was talking about. And he offered me more options than anyone else had offered.

I ended up doing Lingual Braces (behind the teeeth) with him and I am thrilled with the results. The braces were totally invisible, but had the ability to fix things that Invisalin could not fix. Apparently Dr Riz is the guru of braces behind the teeth on the East Coast. You would not know it by talking to him, cuz he doesn't flaunt it. But I do my research before I decide on important things.

So besides great results and nice service, the cost was not toooo bad (wasn't cheap though).

And it was nice that he is easy on the eyes. I actually enjoyed my appointments.

Good Luck Crooked-tooth researchers!

I had braces when I was a kid but I did not wear my retainer so one of my teeth became very crooked.

I looked into Invisalign but felt it was really too expensive. Finally, I found Dr. Rizkallah and his Simple Aligners. It was just what I needed. He straightened my teeth in 3 months. The Simple Aligners looked llike Invisalign but was alot cheaper.

Overall, I would say that the results were perfect, the process was easier than I expected, and the cost was low. I love the retainer he gave me. And I will actually wear this retainer since it is so easy to use. I wish I had this retainer to start with, I would have worn it because it is so easy.

Thank You Orthodontics at Davis Square and Dr Riz and Ortho Staff. Thank you!

I got Hidden braces (behind my teeth) in my fifties. I thought I missed my chance to straighten my teeth and that I was too old. I was told about Dr. Riz being a guru of hidden braces (not many docs do it well) and I went to see him.

After 9 months, my smile has been transformed into something amazing. He said it would take 9 months and that is what it took.

I can easily say that I have never had a better experience with any health care provider ever. I really feel indebted to this man for his professionalism, quality of work, and gentle demeanor.

I feel privileged to have had the opportunity to be his patient.

I am an adult. I had a really serious underbite problem, for which I needed braces, not Invisalign. I read about Dr. Riz online and he had great reviews. I figured I would go an meet him to see if he could resolve my jaw issues.

I figured he would say I needed jaw surgery. And while he did say that jaw surgery was an option, he actually felt that jaw surgery was not in my best interest. He said he could correct my problem without jaw surgery.

After giving me all the information I could possible need, he asked me if I had any questions. I really liked that. The fact is I did not have any questions because he really knew all my questions before I asked him.

It was a pleasure working with this wonderful man. He was kind, informative, tremendously skilled, and my results are phenomenal.

I did not expect my results to be as good as they are.

I could say alot of things about this place that would make anyone want to go there. The cleanliness, the architecture, the nice/ articulate/ intelligent doctor and great staff, etc.

But I don't really care about any of that. All I care about is COST and RESULTS!!! That is it!

The COST was FAIR, not cheap and not expensive. Actually a little cheaper than average in my research

The RESULTS were FANTASTIC. Blew my mind really.

CONCLUSION: I would do it over again with Dr. Riz. Great decision.

Dr. Rizkallah is one of the most capable/knowledgeable doctors I have ever experienced. I am thrilled that I chose him as my orthodontist. I can't say that there weren't some bumps when I once had to wait 25 minutes to be seen, but not a big deal.

My results are more than I expected could be accomplished, and he did it in only 6 months.

Great experience really.

Dr. Riz is the Best!

I had braces before when I was a kid. I didn't wear my retainers. One of my front teeth got really crooked. I looked into Invisalign, but it cost way too much for what I wanted fixed. I mean really, do I need to pay 5K to make one tooth straight!?

I looked for alternatives. I found the Simple Aligner, which Dr. Riz invented. My insurance covered most of it, and I only had to pay a few hundred bucks out of my own pocket.

My tooth it straight. It only took 2 months. I am thrilled.

So glad to have met Dr. Riz. Great Ortho!

Dr. Rizkallah changed my life!

I am 36. I did not think that I could consider orthodontics at this stage in the game. But I really needed to fix my crooked teeth. I had seen a few orthodontists that said that I needed braces for about 2 years, and that was just more than I could handle. My dentist said I could do Invisalign, but Dr. Riz said no way. He said he loves Invisalign for the right patient, but will not use it on the wrong patient. That made sense to me.

Dr Riz said braces for only 12 months. I had read a ton of reviews about the guy, and he seems like the "Dr OZ" of Dentistry. So I signed up.

The guy did what he said. It took 12 months, and one week. I got my braces off.

My gosh. Who is that person I keep asking myself when I look in the mirror. The happiness that I have is hard to describe. And I can even say that I will, in some demented way, miss Dr. Riz. He is really kind and considerate.

Great Experience.

Dr. Riz. You changed my life! Thank You.
