I am not comfortable with the service, the lack of professionalism, the discrimination, and the way in which they resolve the concerns of the patients. They are very nice when they make you sign the contract, and very insightful in the way they make you place reviews on google to attract more patients. I do not recommend it at all. My children do not want to return, they have been treated in a rude way. We are looking for someone to finish my children's treatment because discrimination has been strong

LACH ORTHODOTICS Lach Orthodontics is a place I greatly REGRET taking my daughter to. The first several and frequent visits were to reattach her brackets because they wouldn’t stay glued on. Only one staff member was able to, so I requested just him for the 2+ years she wore braces. During that time, I maybe saw the Dr himself twice, and spoke to him less than that. But boy do you see his face everywhere. You can tell the guy really, really likes himself. Wish it was mutual. Toward the end of my daughter’s treatment, I purchased three more services. To laser her excess gums, file her edges, and whiten her teeth. Prior to that happening, I mentioned it to her Dentist, who strongly asked me to not do the whitening portion because of my daughter’s condition. She has Tuberous Sclerosis Complex which causes tumors in all her organs, and dental pits on her teeth. I confirmed the Dentist’s concerns with the TSC specialist that we go to. The disease is life-threatening as it is, so of course I’m not going to add to her physical problems unnecessarily. I told this to the staff at Lach’s, and they did just the other two services. I asked about a refund for the whitening. At first I was told they don’t give refunds, just credits. I explained we were at the end and nothing left to buy. And, I’d originally signed up two daughters for braces, but after a rocky start with the first, I cancelled the second child and was given a refund. So that’s just not true. I also explained I didn’t change my mind, but that two professional doctors felt it would be detrimental to her oral health to whiten her teeth because it’d weaken her already weak enamel. I’ve called so many times, I’ve gone in person, I’ve emailed, I’ve specifically asked for the Great Dr. Lach himself to call me, but just crickets. I’ve begun gathering the necessary information for a lawsuit, but it’s frustrating because I have more important things I should be spending my time on, but it’s my money not his, and shame on him for treating us this way. He took my money, Brad said about $330, didn’t perform the service, made up a false policy, and POCKETED THE MONEY! My money! Each time I call, the staff members know the deal and feel badly for me. They apologize and say they don’t blame me for being upset. They’ve also said they don’t understand why he won’t refund me and hides from me. (They don’t say hide, they say avoids.) So, I’m going to have to sue. But if you’re considering getting yours or your child’s braces, RUN from this place. Oh yeah, and when I said I only wanted a specific person taking care of her (remember how in the beginning several others failed and I had no choice?) the tall guy with black hair all but called me racist! Yeah that’s right! He said “just because we have accents doesn’t mean we’re not as good as the others.” What??? That way of thinking shows who the racist is. Btw, my kids are Chinese. Whatever. Dr. Lach, Shame On You!!!!!!!! I think you’re horrible.
