Reviews Of Dr. Shafer & His Orthodontics Team

Dr. Shafer, Champaign & Mahomet, IL’s Favorite Orthodontist

Dr. Shafer and everyone in his office are amazing! Your first appointment is awesome. You feel so welcome. Every time I check in I don’t need to do anything. They see you walk in and check you in, they know who you are! There were no issues when I had to bring my little ones, 3 y.o. and 1 month old. I had brought a friend to keep them entertained but they said my kids could come back with me if I wanted. I have terrible anxiety when it comes to dental work. The friendliness and experience everyone has helps keep me calm. I am always in and out. I don’t remember an appointment that was pushed back due to the office being behind. I love it here so much I wish he also did regular dental work.

Doing multiple phases for fixing my teeth and starting the 2nd one today. The first stage went very well and I’m very satisfied so far. I’m so excited to see the results when everything is done! Very very nice staff too!

best champaign orthodontistKristin M.

Friendliest orthodontist office around. The group of superstars that work there always make the patient and their family feel like a priority and their chair-side manner is second to none. We always recommend!

best champaign orthodontistChristina M.

I can’t say enough wonderful things about their office! The upbeat, friendly vibe everyone has is infectious. They get you in and out and the wait is next to nothing. They keep you informed of your child’s progress. It’s definitely not the orthodontic experience I had as a kid. A+

best champaign orthodontistSherry W.

The staff is wonderful and very patient. My daughter especially loves Ashley her favorite dental assistant. Dr. Shafer is very knowledgeable and great with his patients. Would highly recommend.

best champaign orthodontistSidney S.

I love this office so much. All the people here are so helpful and quick. They are open really early which helps so I can come before school. I definitely recommend this to anybody in the Champaign area.

best champaign orthodontistMax K.

Dr. Shafer has treated all 3 of my boys and we couldn’t have hoped for a better experience! He is so patient and kind, as is all of the staff. Every appointment we are in and out. I would (and have) recommend Dr. Shafer to anyone needing orthodontia.

best champaign orthodontistBeth N.

The staff is always so friendly and they take such great care of my kids! My son Mack had gone in to have my retainer repaired and was done in a flash. Not to mention he had just recently had his senior photos taken and the photographer couldn’t say enough nice things about how awesome his smile was!

best champaign orthodontistBethany F.

I haven’t even gotten my braces on yet and truly feel right at home. I can trust that this team of orthodontists will allow me to gain the smile I truly wish for

best champaign orthodontistClaire S.

My son visited Dr. Shafer office today for the first time and walked in to a nice big welcome sign with his name on it. He had a nice gift bag awaiting him and the staff was welcoming and pleasant as well.

best champaign orthodontistJoanne J.

Dr. Shafer and his staff are so friendly! I was very nervous to start invisalign but they made sure to answer all my questions and put my mind at ease. My insurance wouldn’t cover my orthodontic work, so Dr. Shafer allowed us to set up a payment plan! Highly recommend working with him and his wonderful staff!!

best champaign orthodontistHannah M.

Dr. Shafer and his staff are amazing. The staff knows you by name and are very welcoming. They do a great job of explaining all options with treatment and payment. They never push you into anything. Fantastic place and I highly recommend Dr. Shafer and his team!

best champaign orthodontistRobert D.

I appreciate how Dr. Shafer really accesses the situation of each person and develops a plan of action that is appropriate for that individual. He is not a one solution gots all kind of guy or force you into something before your mouth is ready.

best champaign orthodontistSusan H.

Dr Shafer and his staff has always been incredibly friendly, and they do amazing work! I would recommend them to anyone I know

best champaign orthodontistTenille P.

One if my dreams was to always have my teeth straightened when I got older. Of course , I did have braces as a chid but I was not consistent with wearing retainers and so my teeth became crowded and crooked! This always made me feel very self conscious and I didn’t like to smile for pictures alot. I was referred to Dr. Shafer for Invisalign and was prepared for a long and painful journey to straighten my teeth again. But due to Dr. Shafer’s experience and expertise, the process was so simple and painless! My dream was accomplished in a very short time and now I can’t stop smiling! Dr. Shafer and everyone in his office are all so nice and helpful, they truly made my experience awesome!

best champaign orthodontistLan N.

Dr. Shafer has been working with my son for over a year. He has been extremely patient and kind to my son with autism. We would highly recommend him and the entire office staff to anyone looking for an orthodontist in the Mahomet/Champaign area.

best champaign orthodontistJana M.

We love visiting Dr. Shafer’s office, they are always very courteous, prompt, and professional. And we love all the fun giveaways!

best champaign orthodontistTori S.

Dr. Shafer is excellent! My son had excellent results with braces from Dr. Shafer and my daughter is currently finishing her Invisalign treatment from Dr. Shafer. The office is clean and the receptionists are very friendly and accommodating.

best champaign orthodontistJodi N.

Dr Shafer and his talented staff can truly work miracles with teeth! I went there feeling skeptical about whether Invisalign could fix my horrible overbite and severly misplaced teeth. I am 50 years old and did NOT want braces. Invisalign + Acceledent fixed my bite and smile in about 36 weeks, far shorter a time than I anticipated. I strongly recommend Dr. Shafer for all your orthodontia needs.

best champaign orthodontistGrant H.

Great staff! We have had a wonderful experience. ♡

best champaign orthodontistErica K.

Dr Shafer and his staff provide such a warm welcome in their offices. They give a thorough explanation of everything they will be doing and are doing before each appointment and after. To keep parents and patients in the loop they re-iterate at each visit what is going on and how it’s a step closer to the ultimate goal of straight beautiful teeth and a superb smile. Our first child had braces from his office and Dr Shafer’s work was so satisfying with no complaints that we chose to take our second child there to start the orthodontic adventure with Dr. Shafer and his staff. Thank you Dr Shafer and staff for your hard work, dedication and determination. Our family appreciates it more than you will ever know!
Happy Healthy Smiles💜

best champaign orthodontistDaniel I.

The office is very clean and nice, and all of the people working, including Dr. Shafer are amazing and helpful. They always asked my opinion and more importantly listened to what I had to say. I just recently finished my Invisalign and my smile has never looked better. Thank you Dr. Shafer and team!

best champaign orthodontistEmma F.

I’ve been going here for 10+ years, and they are very personable people. They always greet you with a smile on their face, and they always remember you. I’ve had the whole works done by them, from expander, to spikes, to braces; I am now very pleased with how my teeth look.

best champaign orthodontistNick J.

Amazing orthodontist! Best in Champaign. Very friendly staff

best champaign orthodontistErnest K.

Great service! I always am in and out quickly and they are always on time for appointments. Everybody there is very nice and it is easy to schedule appointment that is right for me.

best champaign orthodontistNatalie D.

I’m towards the end of my braces treatment and I must say I had the best experience ever! The staff is great and super friendly. I’m usually in and out unless they need to do extra work but other than that I walk in the door, I’m greeted and 90% of the time I walk straight to the back and they get started! Dr. Shafer is awesome! I can tell he genuinely listens to me when I have a concern or he’ll begin by asking me if I have any questions or concerns before even starting. He also has two offices, one in Champaign 5 min away from house which is a bonus and one in Mahomet if you happen to be closer or live in that area. Highly recommend!

best champaign orthodontistKathryn O.

Dr Shafer and his staff continued my Invisalign treatment even when I moved out of state. There have also been numerous adjustments that they have had to make when my teeth weren’t tracking properly. I’m so glad that I’ve had this great treatment!

My daughter Cassie had the best experience with her braces I’m so glad we made the choice to get them with Dr. Shafer! The whole staff was wonderful and her teeth look amazing!

best champaign orthodontistCarol P.

Dr. Shafer and his staff have been wonderful from the start. They are professional, quick and kind. I feel Dr. Shafer pays attention to detail and really knows who we are and what our needs are. The appointments are timely and we never seem to wait longer than five min. to be seen. I recommend Dr. Shafer and his team. You can get orthodontist care someplace else for less, but the care, knowledge, and customer service of this team makes it worth the extra cost.

best champaign orthodontistSusan B.

Great staff that takes care of their patients well

best champaign orthodontistNicole B.

I love this office and reccomend it to anyone in the Champaign area. Dr. Shafer and his staff took great care of me. My treatment took a little longer than expected and Dr. Shafer did everything in his power to make sure I walked out with a perfect smile.

best champaign orthodontistKyleigh W.

Dr. Shafer and his team go the extra mile to create an atmosphere that is very comfortable and easy. Everyone in the office is easy to talk to and treat you like someone they genuinely want to get to know. I honestly never thought that I would ever like an orthodontist this much… which is why I waited until my mid 20’s before getting braces. They treated me like I was their favorite customer and I believed it! They are definitely worth your consideration.
