Top notch husband and wife team who are not only exceptional orthodontists but they are also passionate about what they do! Behind these amazing orthodontists is a team of assistants and adminstrative members who compliment the office that they work for. I have done my research for orthdontists in the Seattle (ish) area and it really doesn't get better than Dr. Leone, Dr. Vaughn and team. What you see is what you get. There are no hidden motives with this team. They started treating my smile a year ago and I was so impressed I started bringing my daughter to their office as well, and we live in Olympia, passing by MANY orthodontists on our way up to Seattle! The drive is definitely worth it to have great care! I would recommend this office to family, friends, strangers (And I have!) near and far! Thank you Dr. Leone, Dr. Vaughn and Team!
My ordeal with braces at L&V – First of all the prices were higher than most others. But I chose them since I figured I was going to get great service at that price. Well I was wrong. First of all I did not like making appointments here. I felt that the times were forced on me and I could not really choose what time I could come in. Another problem is that if I came in with broken brackets his staff would just ignore them while replacing the rubber bands and send me on my way. The least they could do is inform me so I could reschedule to have them glued back on. But they did not until I pointed out to them that they were broken.
Then it was time to take the braces off. I told him that my teeth still looked crooked to me but he insisted that they were straight. Since he is the expert and not me I agreed to have them removed. And sure enough I was right. They were not straight. So he spent the next six months making adjustments to my retainers to try to straighten the crooked teeth. But it did not work. He then offered to throw the braces back on to get my teeth straight. But I refused since it was already about 3 years since the treatment started I did not feel like starting over again.
Hello JM1970, Thank you for taking the time to post your feedback. I am so sorry you have had a less-than ideal experience with us. We would love to have the chance to talk to you about your experience, so we can improve our service and to ensure that we do indeed meet your expectations.
Key reasons to choose Leone & Vaughn – Hands down, Leone and Vaughn should be your first choice for orthodontic work.
A few key reasons:
Boutique service for no additional cost – My orthodontic situation was really bad. I had gone to other orthodontists and I was quoted the same price over and over, plus I was told I'd need to go to an outside dental surgeon just to have a tiny metal pin inserted into my jaw at the gum-line. This was gonna cost an extra $800 which sounded completely ridiculous to me. Dr. Leone was able to take care of all of it at no extra charge. They're not out to over-charge you or refer business to their cohorts like some other orthodontists. She and her husband Dr. Vaughn are honest and very good at what they do. They can do a lot more than most orthodontists can and they do a great job at it.
Something else that stands out to me is that they're such a Ken and Barbie couple. They're the most attractive orthodontists, not to mention attractive couple, I've ever met. In short, they're the perfect team in so many ways! ;)
Be sure to get a consultation from them first! And don't worry they won't continually solicit you afterwards if you fail to use their service. Unlike some other car-sales-men orthodontists who can't take no for an answer.
Leone & Vaughn for adult braces – If you’re an adult needing orthodontic care, especially if it’s needed to fix major bite issues, and needed as part of treatment with jaw surgery, Drs. Leone and Vaughn is your answer.
I was referred to Leone and Vaughn after spending five years consulting with other orthodontists and dental professionals.
After having my wisdom teeth out in 2003, I began to experience pain, and by seeing several medical professionals, I found out that my bite was really out of wack. I had an open bite and my teeth were not touching in the back; biting with my front teeth was not happening.
As time went on, my issues with biting and chewing (and pain) continued; not to mention my teeth were getting ruined.
I was told early on that in order to fix these issues and live out the rest of my live happy, healthy, and "normal," that I would need to get braces and then have lower jaw surgery. In addition, I was going to need to have four permanent teeth extracted. I was like "no way."
So, after spending five years consulting with different orthodontists and other medical professionals, I decided I would consult with one more orthodontist, and make a final decision to move forward with orthodontics and surgery.
I was referred to Leone and Vaughn. They took records—photos and x-rays, and said what everyone else said: braces and surgery will fix my problems. But, they said they could do it without any teeth extractions. I finally decided to go for it. This decision did not come easily or lightly.
Another detail about Leone and Vaughn that attracted me to them is the fact that about half of their patients are adults, which means they are very familiar with adult issues.
I got my braces (clear braces) on in November of 2008, and after four to six months, I had my first consultation with the jaw surgeon, Dr. Douglas Trimble, who works out of Overlake in Bellevue.
After meeting with him, he was able to explain my situation to me in relation to the lower jaw surgery, and I was feeling even more comfortable about the process.
I had my surgery in June of 2010, and during the time before that a lot of adjustments had to made to my teeth per Dr. Trimble for the surgery. Drs. Leone and Vaughn worked closely with Dr. Trimble to set my teeth up for the lower jaw surgery. I have to admit, my teeth had to look worse before they could look better. Large spaces had to made that I didn’t like, but they told me that’s why I keep my braces on for at least six months after surgery. And it’s true.
I had my braces on nine months after the surgery, and Drs. Leone and Vaughn were able to bring those spaces back and make my teeth look even better than they did before I started the process, and this was NOT something I did for cosmetic reasons.
Along the way, I always had a lot questions about why this tooth was here, etc., and they were so patient in explaining why they were doing what they were doing. As adults we like know exactly what is happening, and Leone and Vaughn are very good at making you feel comfortable and knowledgeable about the situation.
Now, after being complete with my orthodontic care and surgery, I am so very happy with my bite and jaw placement and teeth and smile. I can’t thank the doctors enough for doing such a wonderful job. It was a long road, but I have no regrets, and would refer anyone in my same situation to work with Drs. Leone and Vaughn.
Review for Leone & Vaughn – Drs. Leone and Vaughn are top-notch professionals, to put it succinctly, as is their entire staff. And all of them are the kind of people whom you would love to have for a friend. I had significant jaw and dental issues when I first walked into their office and they used their talents, creativity and expertise to give me a smile that makes me, well, smile. Often. The doctors were, without fail, compassionate and made it a point to keep me informed every step of the way. I also liked the flexibility of being able to choose whether to go to their Queen Anne or Madison Park location, as well as their staying on top of the latest high-tech methods for myriad procedures. But the most important thing they gave me is a beautiful, healthy smile. Occasionally, when I am driving near the office closest to my home, I look over and think, "Gosh, I miss seeing all of my friends there." How many other orthodonists could make a former patient feel that way? The answer is darn few.
I'd give them a sixth star if there was one! – Leone & Vaughn was recommended by my Dentist. I have sleep apnea and needed jaw surgery. My Dentist, Leone & Vaughn and the surgeon worked as a team to move my teeth to prepare for surgery. Then my jaw was moved forward and my teeth straighten to their proper position. All this to relieve my sleep apnea symptoms. Without this great team working together the whole ordeal would have been a nightmare. Thanks so much to Leone & Vaughn for their professional, friendly, patient and organized approach to this arduous process. I'd give them a sixth star for their extra effort.
One of Seattle's Best – We are happy to be patient's of Drs. Leone and Vaughn. Our entire family is or has been treated in their office. We have had a great experience with them and their staff. They have always been very flexible with scheduling which is quite a feat with a busy practice. They are busy for a reason...they are very good. They are very proactive and even surprised us at some of their recommendations. We didn't think our son was in need of orthodontic treatment at an early age but Dr. Leone brought out information from research that helped us make the best decision about proceeding with treatment. They see the very routine to the extremely complex cases so you'll always be in good hands. In a city of several fantastic orthodontic offices, you will be very pleased you chose Leone and Vaughn orthodontics...I am. The smiles and health of my entire family have been improved by their care. Kudos to their fabulous staff as well. Very helpful!
Leone & Vaughn – My decision to choose Leone and Vaughn over other orthodontists was not simply due to the fact that their work would cost less and take less time, but because the feedback I received during my preliminary meeting with Dr. Vaughn indicated that they were would do a more thorough job.
I have not been disappointed. Drs. Leone and Vaughan have taken extra x-rays, identified possible dental problems while working with my dentist, in addition to keeping my progress on schedule. Their expertise is matched by their staff's experience and skill. The office is friendly and well organized.
I just got my braces off (on schedule) and am very happy with the results. I highly recommend L & V.
Outstanding Orthodontists! – I just got my braces off and I could not be happier with the results!!! At first I hated the fact that I had to get braces, I wanted nothing to do with metal in my mouth or any of other factors that go into the orthodontic process. But immediately after my first visit to Leone and Vaughn I quickly change my mind! With their awesome, friendly staff and convenient locations I was able make it to my appointments while also finding parking. I refer as many people as I can to Dr.'s Leone and Vaughn because I want everyone else with braces to feel the exact same way I do! If you are thinking about braces or any orthodontic work then please, schedule a consult with L&V Ortho and I promise you will be more than satisfied with your decision!
