    The staff at Walnut Grove orthodontist are very kind. They take their time to explain what is happening and they are super patient with anxious kids. My son's treatment has gone smoothly and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend WGO.

    Dr. Standerwick gave me my smile back. Walnut Grove ortho is seriously the best. Nicest doctor, nurses, and receptionists. I went to 3 different orthodontist consultations before going to Walnut Grove ortho, and they were the clear winner, by far. All the other orthos told me that invisalign would be impossible for me, yet somehow Dr. Standerwick proved them all wrong, because invisalign has made my teeth perfect. 11/10. You've found your ortho, don't bother looking elsewhere, I've already tried!

    My family and I had nothing but a great experience with Doctor Standerwick and his team. Always courteous, accommodating and actually heads his patients. We would recommend him to anyone. Great convenient and accessible location too.

    I’ve been a patient of Doc Standerwick for years (I had a long, extensive jaw irregularities in which Doc Standerwick worked alongside my jaw surgeon to make sure I had the best plan). He is so patient, supportive and knowledgeable. I highly recommend him for both children and adult orthodontics. He also has the best bedside manner so going there to get your teeth moved and shifted around hurts less!
