Dr. John Delplanche recently took over my care and this practice from Dr. Vanessa Peterson and her husband. I started with her, but my understanding is that she moved out of state on family matters. I could not be more impressed with how committed Dr. Delplanche and his staff are with getting me the best results despite a prior poor Invisalign treatment from a dentist. This is what Dr. Peterson had started to fix and thankfully Dr. Delplanche will continue. Lesson learned and shared: an orthodontist, not a dentist, should provide your orthodontist care for best results! There's additional education and training for this specialty dentists don't receive even if Invisalign allows them to take trainings, sometimes as little as over a weekend! It's not the same high quality care in my experience nor in your best interests any more than those new mail in low cost clear aligner treatment trays competitors offer. Your bite and your teeth need to last your lifetime. Don't just get your teeth straightened for cosmetics; make sure your bite is also being properly aligned too or you'll be sorry! Transferring care has been seamless. He's a funny, gentle guy with a serious side, paying attention to detail and even going the extra mile for patients like me. He really takes the time to explain everything in very understandable detail. I've heard he's great with children too! He puts me at ease and I'm an adult, nervous about even going to the dentist! Dr. Delplanche is also Board Certified just like Dr. Peterson. I highly recommend him!B
Everyone was super fun and friendly. I was never left out of the loop and was always told what was being done.A
Everyone at the clinic was very kind and professional. Office was clean, ran on-time with quick and thorough appointments. Best ortho experience ever!M.E.
We drive across town to your office because we’re so happy with your practice and don’t think we could find any better!J.T.
Dr. Vanessa & Andrew Peterson became the new owners towards the end of my treatment but they were so kind and efficient that I felt like keeping my braces on for longer! Dr. Vanessa Peterson is the sweetest person ever with excellent customer service and truly makes every patient feel cared about no matter how long their treatment has been. If you are looking for a nice orthodontist that also gets the job quickly done, you should most definitely go to Lake Oswego Orthodontics and Periodontics!Allison
We had the best possible initial consultation with Dr. Vanessa Peterson recently. My daughter is just 7 years old but has a lot of crowding and I was concerned about getting an early start on treatment. Dr. Peterson and her staff made sure my daughter was comfortable from the moment we came into the office- they are so warm and friendly! She examined her, gave me some helpful information about her current situation and possible first steps, and I left feeling confident that we have a plan. I would recommend Dr. Peterson to anyone- it's even worth the drive if you're not in Lake Oswego!Marianne
Dr. Vanessa Peterson is a knowledgeable, caring professional. Vast subject matter expertise, keen attention to detail, hard work and persistence, and a willingness to make treatment effective and affordable for her patients are characteristics which set her atop other providers. Dr. Vanessa Peterson has provided me with treatment options that I would otherwise not have considered, and she has given me assurance that adult orthodontia is not only acceptable but, beneficial to dental health in the coming years. Although I have not yet begun treatment with her, I look forward to being fitted with upper and lower traditional metal braces and working together to achieve the smile that I have always wanted. Thank you Dr. Vanessa!Daniel
