“ I found Signature Orthodontics on Yelp, and signed up the same day of my consultation.  I worked with Dr. Jerome using Invisalign for about a year and am absolutely thrilled with the results!  Even as an adult, you would be surprised how important a confident smile is, both personally and professionally.

“ Dr. Jerome is a fabulous orthodontist and his office and team are first class. My son is nearly done with his Damon braces (in just over a year) and I will start invisalign soon.  I have visited other orthodontia offices that did not make me feel comfortable, so chose not to use them.  After meeting Dr. Jerome at Signature Orthodontics I can assure you that there is no high pressure, they have state of the art technology, a spotless office, a caring staff and tremendous integrity. I highly recommend Signature Orthodontics for kids and adults.

“ Today was my son's first day of his last year... his senior year... of high school... and I noticed how nice his smile was... and it just reminded me of the OUTSTANDING orthodontic care he had with Dr. Jerome... and his entire staff.  It's been over 3 years since Dr. Jerome completed his orthodontic care of my son... and it's just nice to be still SO HAPPY about my son's smile and to have had such PLEASANT EXPERIENCE and OUTCOME..
