  • “They are absolutely amazing. My daughter refused to smile until we took her to Dr. Koterwas. Now she smiles all the time.” — C. Fowler
  • “For anyone who has children with sensory needs ... they are amazing! The staff is wonderful and Chewy (the dog) will make anyone a dog lover. Between the environment and staff, it makes for a very relaxing and soothing experience, and I am so grateful they work so well with my children. Today I watched as the office manager held a little boy’s hand and made him feel safe when getting an impression. She distracted him and even put some of the molding putty on his fingers so he could feel more comfortable with what was going on in his mouth. What would have been traumatic was anything but that. To top it off, he got puppy love and a treat.” — T. Teegarden
  • “I had my braces taken off 6 years ago by an orthodontist in Florida and have suffered from broken retainer after broken retainer. As an active-duty military member, it is a challenge to find a new, trustworthy orthodontist everywhere I go. I took a chance and booked an appointment with Dr. Koterwas. I was able to be seen within a few days of calling and was very happy I made the choice to see him. Scheduling and check-in were easy. He and his assistant took a great amount of time to answer my questions and talk through the options for me. I was very impressed with their care and will undoubtedly go back to them for future orthodontic care. They have my recommendation for any patients seeking a good orthodontist in the Southern Maryland area.” — Melanie C.
