Patient Testimonial for Dr. Grant Collins

He tells me everything that’s going on with my braces, and that’s always good to know because my mom is asking me questions all the time about my braces. Dr. Collins is such a nice caring person…he’s probably the best orthodontist ever! Calli B. (Patient)
Dr. Collins makes going to the orthodontist enjoyable. Seriously! He is caring, transparent about the plan your child needs, and very forthcoming about details that will expedite the orthodontic process and bring that final result of perfection as quickly as possible. Dr. Collins took the time to get to know my daughter Calli. He learned of her interests and even came to see one of her musical performances at our local county fair. Calli was completely thrilled! By being so aware of who Calli is, he earned her trust completely and she was more than willing to follow his instructions after each of her appointments. Dr. Collins is an excellent doctor, but most importantly he is a wonderful person! I would highly recommend Dr. Collins to anyone of all ages and any parent whose child needs braces and orthodontic care. My younger son may need braces and I will definitely bring him to see Dr. Collins after the excellent care and results my daughter has had with him. He is a true professional and an excellent provider. Calli has found the perfect orthodontist and an excellent example of a person with true compassion and care. Thank you Dr. Collins for all you have done for my daughter!Cami (parent of Calli B.)

Patient Testimonial for Dr. Grant Collins

He’s really friendly, and he knows what he’s doing. It wasn’t intimidating to talk with him. When I have problems, I’m usually kind of intimidated to talk to a doctor about them, but I felt comfortable talking with Dr. Collins. You feel much better about yourself after each visit because he’s really positive about everything. Even if there is something wrong with your teeth, he finds a positive about it. He explained things in terms I could understand so I knew exactly what was going on and how I was progressing through braces. I would definitely recommend that other people go see Dr. Collins! Cara V. (Patient)
Dr. Collins is fun, outgoing, and very personable! He is the PERFECT doctor for the whole family. He was very concerned and excited for me in achieving the results I wanted. The results were AWESOME!! My smile was completely different and I was thrilled. Wearing braces was totally worth it. Dr. Collins was very thorough and treated me like a “family” member. He was a FUN doctor and I always looked forward to my appointments with him! Isabelle V. (Patient)
SUPERB!!! I appreciated being kept in the loop; Dr. Collins always made a point of talking to me when I came with to Izy’s appointments. I also appreciated his enthusiasm for achieving the best results possible. He was a very caring person both professionally and personally. I wish more Doctors were just like him. His “bedside” manner was OUTSTANDING!!! We loved/enjoyed having him as our doctor and missed seeing him on a monthly basis once his work was done!!! I/We THANK him for Izy’s new smile that she loves to share!!! Rose (parent of Isabelle V.)
I took my 7 year old son to Collins Orthodontics and I could not be happier! We were greeted with a warm smile from Kimberly, hot chocolate for Ethan and coffee for me. Everyone made both Ethan and I feel very comfortable. From x-ray to exam, I have never seen Ethan listen and look so relaxed. This means a lot to a parent to visibly watch your child enjoy something like the orthodontist. Thank you for today, and we look forward to his next check up! Kimberly (parent of Ethan)

Dr. Collins is super funny! He’s really outgoing and just like a fun guy. He’s really easy-going, so if you ever have questions about your braces or teeth, he’ll answer them with full honesty.

Patient Testimonial for Dr. Grant Collins

Dr. Collins is really sweet, and every time I’d come in, he would have a big smile on his face. He would just be really nice and welcoming, and you would feel really happy when you are around him. He did a great job on my teeth and he’s just really fun and he’s always talkative and he makes you feel at home. Emma V. (Patient)

Patient Testimonial for Dr. Grant Collins

Dr. Collins was amazing! Seriously I have never liked my dentist before because they would always be so condescending towards me and I never felt comfortable in their chairs. When I was younger I would tell myself that since they had their fingers in my mouth I would "accidently" bite them if they caused me unnecessary pain. So my relationship with dentists was few and very stressful. When I started my journey with Dr. Collins I was surprised at how he would take the time to get to know me as a patient. It made a huge difference! Naima Y. (Patient)

Dr. Collins is really fun, easy to talk to, and he’s really nice…my smile turned out great! Lety M. (Patient)

Patient Testimonial for Dr. Grant Collins

Dr. Collins has really gone out of his way to ensure that I have the best orthodontic care possible. As a college dance team performer, I was conscious of my smile and initially pretty skeptical about everything moving my teeth would entail. Dr. Collins was extremely empathetic and worked with me in finding the perfect treatment that I felt confident with and could still perform in (as a college dance team performer). As his patient, I was no longer skeptical because I knew I was in good hands. I was so happy with how my teeth looked after treatment and I fully trusted him in his expertise. Amanda M. (Patient)

Patient Testimonial for Dr. Grant Collins

Before Invisalign with Dr. Collins, I had a couple teeth with large gaps between them, and now with my Invisalign I feel more comfortable smiling. Invisalign was really easy to deal with. Dr. Collins was really outgoing, really nice, and I was really comfortable around him! Justin R. (Patient)
He’s wonderful. He makes the kids at ease. He makes them feel able to ask questions. He’s a very gregarious man, so it makes it a wonderful experience. He’s fun to work with; he makes you happy. Your child is happy because the results look great. It’s a win-win for everybody! Even more than what he does, he’s kind of like a friend. Janet (parent of Justin R.)

Patient Testimonial for Dr. Grant Collins

I had so many questions that were answered very well by Dr. Collins. Dr. Collins is the sweetest person. He is kind-hearted, compassionate, and has empathy with his patients. I’m just so happy that I had him as my orthodontist. He provided me with pros and cons of all the options, and was very honest with me. He’s an expert, and when he worked on my braces he did a perfect job. He really knows what he’s doing. I’m going to recommend him to everybody who is thinking of having braces, whether child or adult. He’s wonderful, and has been a doctor, as well as a friend. The scheduling was really flexible and easy to work with, especially since I live so far from Rochester. I would absolutely recommend that others go see Dr. Collins because I definitely think that he is one of the best in his area. Just the compassion he has in his eyes relaxes you. If you are somebody scared of going to a dental office, he has that thing about him which makes you calm. He’ll take his time; he’ll not rush you. He’s awesome. Shilpa S. (Adult Patient)

Dr. Collins is fabulous! Words can’t describe how incredibly friendly, personable, and responsive to any concerns he is! Marika P. (Patient)
 
My daughter now has a perfect smile and she started out with quite a few very crooked teeth! She always looked forward to her orthodontic appointments. Dr. Collins has an excellent bed side manner and my entire family is glad to know him. Plus he knows a lot about soccer and the kids love that. His new office has a great location with easy access and parking. Kristin (Parent of Claire T.)
As strange as it sounds, my son enjoyed going to the orthodontist. After chatting with Dr. Collins the first time, I had confidence in his ability to adjust Collin's (my son's name too!) teeth and smile. Dr. Collin's kept me informed throughout the process. I was most impressed by Dr. Collin's interest in my son's life...not just his teeth. He came to know my son well and even stopped by the soccer field to watch him play. We now look forward to his follow up appointments as an opportunity to "catch up!" Oh, and my son's teeth and smile look incredible. Chris (Parent of Collin S.)
Dr. Collins is very professional and always ensures the highest quality of service. He is very knowledgeable and treats his patients (and their parents) with utmost respect. Dr Collins treated my daughter who had particularly stubborn teeth with care and compassion. He was very thorough and detail-oriented with her treatment plan, and always included her as part of the process, outlining what was to happen next and keeping both her and me updated at each and every appointment. Visiting Dr Collins was always a pleasant experience, and I would highly recommend him. Sadhna (Parent of Rhea S.)
