    As an adult getting braces, I was so nervous, but Dr. Prater and her staff at Rancho Del Ray Orthodontics are wonderful and make me feel so comfortable every time I come in for an appointment. They even gave me clear braces so people can't even tell that I have braces. Also, with my work schedule, it is hard to get time off and she always finds a way to work with my schedule.

    I cannot say enough about how wonderful Dr. Prater and her staff were during our son's consultation. I was amazed how thorough and personable our FREE consultation was. We felt Dr. Prater was not only professional, but she truly cares about her patients. Our family would highly recommend anyone to call and book an appointment with Dr. Prater at Rancho Del Rey Orthodontics.

    I love that Rancho Del Ray Orthodontics has a beautiful office in a great location right next to Costco on East H Street. The staff is very friendly and I always feel welcome. I've been happy with my results and always look forward to my appointments because I feel really comfortable in the office. Dr. Prater is extremely nice and always professional.

    I finished my braces with Dr. Prater recently. She was such a great orthodontist because she never settled for just “good enough†– everything had to be perfect for her to take my braces off. She worked with me until my retainers fit perfectly so my smile will stay just the way I want it. I loved the high-tech office with the finger scan check in – very fun to see my picture pop up on the computer screen with a personalized welcome. Two of my friends also see Dr. Prater and we all think that she is the best!

    Both of my daughters completed braces at Rancho Del Rey Orthodontics and we've been thrilled with the results. Dr. Prater made sure their smiles were perfect and has followed up with their retainers to make sure that they stay that way. The staff is very friendly and professional and it was easy to finance right in the office without having to pay interest. I have recommended Dr. Prater to everyone that I know! If you're looking for high quality treatment at a great price then Rancho Del Ray Orthodontics is for you.
