I’ve been visiting the office for the last 3 years and had braces for 2 years. They supported me up until jaw surgery and after surgery. I could not be happier with the results. My smile is perfect now and i have the doctors to thank. I have had wonderful experiences with all 3 doctors that have been kind and transparent. I recommend this office to anyone who needs braces.

Top notch service from start to finish. I love, love, love, when there is a good experience where business genuinely cares about their customers. I appreciate the honesty and was shocked that the first consultation is free of charge. I would have happily paid for that quality of service.

I went as a new patient - needed a routine repair to a permanent retainer. The staff were nice on the phone, were able to tell me the cost of the appointment ahead of time, and got me an appointment within 3 business days and accommodated my vacation schedule. At the appointment there was almost zero wait time, the dr answered all of my questions, and the repair was painless and seems thorough. I would go back if I needed to and would recommend.

If you want the best of the best opinions for orthodontic treatment, go here! Drs. Cassinelli, Shanker, and Baker are very meticulous in their work, are confident, personable, and honest.

I took my 12 year old with special needs in for a consult. They were very patient and accommodating to our needs and answered all of my questions. They did not push their services on us and gave us what I believe were honest answers about what was necessary and what was not.

My experience with Cassinelli & Shanker Orthodontics was absolutely amazing! I have always wanted braces my entire life and as a child I wasn’t lucky enough to have them. Here I am now mid 20s, with a perfect smile and I could never be happier. These Drs are simply amazing at what they do. They don’t make you feel embarrassed for your teeth, they explain throughout your entire process what is needed and expected and are there for you always if you have any questions. Their team is also wonderful. Everyone there is very friendly and actually care about you. I am so glad that I went with my gut and took care of something I wanted my entire life and I honestly couldn’t do it without their help. Thank you Cassinelli & Shanker Orthodontics for fulfilling my dreams and making me actually happy to smile now! You guys are awesome! 😁

As an adult getting braces I was somewhat particular about where I would go. I loved going here. Every time I was in they were welcoming and helpful. They always addressed any issues or concerns I had immediately and took their time to understand my concerns and explain their answers. I saw many adults and many children during my time with braces and everyone was treated well. I would highly recommend Cassinelli and Shanker if you’re looking into braces.

I have a huge fear of the dentist/anything related to dental care, so when my permanent retainer of 14 yrs came loose and moved a tooth, I was terrified. I randomly called Cassinelli & Shankers office and made an appointment. They couldn’t have been nicer! The staff, techs, & orthodontists were all so kind and eased any fears I had. I ended up doing the Invisalign trays and they worked really well! I love that I can text the office if I need to and I always received a quick reply. If I ever need any more ortho work, I’ll definitely come back to this office. (I really hope I don’t though! 😂)

Before, during, and after my daughters consultation, the staff was so nice and friendly!!!! My nerves were already on level 15 before we arrived at the appt. However, listening to the staff break down the results really put my mind at ease. Being there made us feel like we were home. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND DR. CASSINELLI....

Dr. Cassinelli and Shanker are colleagues (I'm also an orthodontist) of mine and amazing orthodontists. I no longer live in the area but I find myself referring friends to their office. They are gifted practitioners and even better people. You can't go wrong with their office.

I could not be more happy with the way my teeth turned out!!! From my consultation to the day I got my braces off has been nothing short of an amazing experience. As an adult going back to braces was very humbling and I was treated with nothing but kindness and respect. I always felt welcome and the entire team gave me excellent care! If you are considering an orthodontist practice, you will not be disappointed!

After having my children’s teeth issues addressed, I decided it was my turn. Where did I choose to go for Invisalign? Well, I trusted the care and results my children experienced from Cassinelli & Shanker Orthodontics, so of course I looked no further for myself! I am so pleased with my results, the staff is a joy to experience and I can’t say enough about the care I received from all of the orthodontists!!!Thank you 😊

Hearing I needed braces as an adult crushed me initially. I was absolutely dreading getting them and going through the process again since I had already had them as a child. However, I am SO happy I was referred to Cassinelli and Shanker Orthodontics. Not only are they friendly and welcoming, but I thoroughly enjoyed getting to know their staff. Most importantly, they kept me informed of everything they were doing through the entire process and even made sure to stick to the deadline I was hoping for. I really wanted to get the braces off before my best friend’s wedding and they made that happen! I am so happy with the turn out and highly recommend this team to anyone in need of orthodontics!

I am a general dentist and have worked with Drs. Shanker & Cassinelli for many years. I appreciate that they are both Board Certified Orthodontic Specialists.

We are new to the practice but so far, 2 appointments in, have loved the experience. The appointments start on time, and the patient coordinator -Beverly, immediately put us at ease. She is very thorough, detailed and open to questions. We met with both Dr.Cassinelli and Dr.Shanker, and they came across as caring experts. They won my kids over, who were anxious going in but excited to go back now. They took time to explain why my kids could use braces, did not make it sound easy or scary - gave them the facts and inspired trust with their calm demeanor. From a parents perspective, I have all the information I need in my first appt, and don't feel rushed. Highly recommend the practice.

Our experience at our consultation with Dr. Shanker was excellent. The new patient coordinator, Beverly, was friendly and accommodating, as was the rest of the staff. Dr. Shanker won us over with his candor, his expertise, his conservative approach to treatment, and his great sense of humor. He put my daughter (and me) at ease, and we look forward to working with him for the next few years.

I was referred to Drs. Cassinelli & Shanker Orthodontics by my dentist, although the choice to properly align my teeth as an adult was my own. From the first call, their office staff was incredibly friendly. Upon visiting for the first time, I was greeted warmly and at no point felt shamed for being an adult who has waited so long to take care of their teeth. The new patient coordinator, Bev was bubbly and informative. Dr. Cassinelli was warm and thoughtful when explaining the process. I look forward to achieving a more beautiful smile with this wonderful team!

We had an outstanding experience with both Dr. Cassinelli and Dr. Shanker. Both of my children had braces, and one required jaw surgery. I knew I could contact either doctor with questions and concerns at any time. The whole staff is friendly and professional. Many went out of their way to alleviate my fears about the jaw surgery - especially Phyllis. We interviewed 3 other orthodontists, but I knew we were in the right place after meeting with them. Today my kids have beautiful, healthy smiles - one of the best decisions I ever made.

Great Orthodontist! As an adult with braces, they couldn't have made the process any easier. They were honest with the treatment options, the pricing was good, and they were right on with the time frame. Receptionist and assistants were always friendly and remembered me from visit to visit. I saw both Dr. Cassinelli and Dr. Shanker during my treatment. Both were friendly, professional, and I felt confident that they knew what they were doing. Appointment scheduling was flexible and they were able to work with my work schedule. One thing that was different from many of the other orthodontists that I visited for estimates was the amount of automation they had built around their practice. You get an account login where you can see your dental X-rays, they email you appointment reminders, and you can view your payments and contract balance online. They helped me to get the flex spending account payments set up through my work which saved a good chunk of money in the end. Overall, I recommend them if you need an Orthodontist in the Cincinnati area.

We love Dr Cassinelli and Dr Shanker and their staff! They waited long enough for my daughter to stop growing to make sure they would only have to do braces once. I like this conservative approach. My daughters teeth look wonderful. They offer lots of incentives to keep the kids involved in their own process.
