  • As an older patient (almost 70), I sincerely appreciated their professionalism and that they made me a part of the treatment plan, thoroughly explaining everything before and during. Their facilities are great and methods are cutting edge. Wish I could have taken my sons there for their orthodontic needs 30 years ago!

  • I highly recommend Robinson & Ries Orthodontics. The doctors and staff are incredibly understanding and helpful. I am glad I chose them to transform my teeth into exactly what I’d hoped they’d look like.
    -- Esther Onufreychuk
  • My daughter just had her braces taken off this morning after 27 months. Her teeth look beautiful. Dr. Reis also performed a gingivectomy and frenectomy because of her thick gums and it also went really well with very little pain and discomfort. Dr. Reis and staff took care of her very well. The office is a nice place to be (you’ll spend a lot of time in that waiting room) with a kind and caring staff. Thanks, Dr. Reis!
    -- Elizabeth Dube
  • They make you feel like you’re in good hands and that they’ll do anything to make your teeth as perfect as possible!
    -- Taylor Jo
  •  I am thrilled with my results after my 18-month treatment at Robinson & Ries Orthodontics!  As an adult making a commitment to a second round of braces, I had a lot of questions and concerns. From my very first consultation to my very last follow-up, I felt that Drs. Robinson and Ries and their staff were extremely professional and skilled. It was clear to me that they tailor each treatment specifically to the needs and desires of each individual. I will definitely be taking my children to Robinson & Ries Orthodontics in the future, and I would recommend them to my closest friends and neighbors!
    -- Chelsea Otten

    -- Hope H.
  • Robinson + Ries Orthodontics exceeded our expectations and my daughter Hope looked forward to every visit because everyone is so nice! Margie & Denise bring me coffee, Lexi has good taste in music, Robbyn is so fun — everyone here is just so pleasant. I’m thinking of getting braces myself so I can come back. This has made such a positive change in Hope’s smile — for the rest of her life!

    -- Chris Heimsoth
  • Robinson & Ries Orthodontics is exactly what they say they are–Outstanding! My son’s smile is perfect and my daughter’s will be soon. Every visit to the office is enjoyable and efficient. The Docs and staff know their jobs well. We’ve been 100% pleased with our experience and results.

    -- Amy Boyd
  • Trust me, this is the place you are looking for if you need orthodontics. We have had 4 family members go through braces, all with Dr. Robinson and Dr. Ries. The doctors and assistants are all highly competent, thorough, and very personable. The office staff is wonderful too. This place is a well-oiled machine! You won’t spend time waiting in the waiting room. This is a FUN office to visit filled with people who clearly love their jobs. Thanks for the beautiful smiles!
    -- Kathi Oster
  • “I have 2 daughters in braces so far and 1 to go. This staff has been exceptionally friendly, and accommodating to the girls’ school schedule. Their treatment is coming along great compared to where they started and the amount of work they had to do on them to start.

    I recommend Robinson and Reis to anyone with kids that will need orthodontic treatment! They really are #1 in our opinion!”

    -- Patricia Beasley
  • “My expectations were completely blown out of the water. At every appointment I could always expect friendly service, smiling faces, and sometimes they would even sing to me! My biggest compliment I can pay the staff is that unlike many other offices I have been in, I was never embarrassed or afraid to show my teeth at Robinson – Ries. The investment was worth it because now I have the rest of my life to enjoy my perfect smile.”

    -- Ross

    -- Debbie Dilks
  • “I am so incredibly thankful for the Dr.’s and staff here! I needed surgery to fix my bite, which my insurance denied. Dr. Ries was able to correct my bite with a special appliance. Yesterday for the first time in my life I was able to bite a piece of pizza with my front teeth… It’s truly amazing! And my teeth are straight and looking more beautiful every month. I am so thankful and grateful for their wisdom and expertise!”

    -- Somer Larson
  • “I feel like we are family now! My oldest is 22 and has a beautiful smile (thanks to you…), my next to the oldest is about to get his off and now my third child is about to get his expander. Whew….that’s a lot of years of metal in the mouth! Thank you for being such a patient team with my group! Hoping the youngest misses out! 😉 “

    -- Leigh Loflin Williams
  • Exceeded my expectations! Was nervous to have braces as an adult but your staff and office always made me comfortable. The 2 years flew by and treatment was  a breeze. Both Dr. Robinson & Dr. Ries were awesome! Thank you so much!! For the first time I love to smile.

    -- Jackie Lowrey

    -- Marco Rea
  • Paige is my third child to be treated here so I had high expectations. We have always received the best of care. You have a lovely staff – always helpful and friendly, like we are members of a family! I have recommended this practice often.

    -- Ellen Flottman
  • Drs. Robinson and Ries and their entire staff are all wonderful!! They are professional and knowledgeable, but they are also fun and energetic as well! They have had to do all sorts of work to get my daughter’s teeth where they need to be, but they have had the expertise to do it. They clearly love what they do, and they do it well. I highly recommend them!

    -- Kristie Wolfe
  • I have 2 boys – both needed expanders and then braces.  This place only gets better – FUN place to be…They are great at what they do – answer all questions – and we have a GREAT time!

    -- Kelly Holtkamp
  • “Awesome orthodontists, service, and staff.  I live in Jefferson City and am glad I chose Robinson and Ries in Columbia.  I couldn’t have asked for a better outcome or better service; they truly care about each patient and make things incredibly easy.”

    -- Chris Allison
  • Dr. Robinson and Dr. Ries are friendly, thorough, professional and have the best staff! As an adult with braces, they have made the experience beyond easy and pleasant from the initial consult through treatment. They recommended Damon braces, offered the option of clear brackets on top and most people say they can’t really tell I am wearing braces at all! For years the decision to have braces was put off because of horror stories of pain and discomfort but as I near the end of treatment I am happy to report that was an unfounded fear. There have been only a few times of discomfort and if you comply with the treatment, it goes really quick and you are soon showing off your new beautiful smile! My recommendation to anyone considering orthodontic treatment (adult or child) is go to Drs. Robinson and Ries, don’t wait….they are truly miracle workers! 🙂

    -- Jackie Lowrey
  • Extremely professional and personal experience.  They have earned their good reputation.
    -- Aaron Myers
  • Dr. Robinson, Dr. Ries, and their staff have taken care of all 3 of my children’s orthodontic needs.  I have been taking my children to their office for 7 years now.  Their office is very kid friendly.  They take the time to get to know all of their patients and families. Dr. Robinson, Dr. Ries, and their staff have taken care of all 3 of my children’s orthodontic needs.  I have been taking my children to their office for 7 years now.  Their office is very kid friendly.  They take the time to get to know all of their patients and families.  All 3 of my children required something special in addition to just braces.  (Lip bumpers, tads, etc.)  They are very easy to work with on payment plans and family discounts if you have more than 1 in their care.  I highly recommend them for anyone’s orthodontic needs!
    My children now have beautiful smiles!  My youngest is getting his braces off next month and I will miss going to the office every 6 weeks.


    -- Jenny Hodge
  •  I LOVE these people! I’m an adult wearing the actual braces, not Invisalign, and they’ve done a great job! They’re always able to work around my schedule and they’ve been wonderful about all the crazy things that has happened since getting them put on (getting hit in the mouth, getting married, being in weddings, etc). I would definitely recommend them to anyone getting orthodontic work and if my kids have my messed up teeth, I’ll be taking them there too!

    -- Kelli Hathman

    “Dr. Ries gave me a beautiful smile. As a professional adult, Invisilign was the perfect option. Rarely did anyone even notice I was wearing my trays. I love the results!”

    -- Cheryl K.
  • “Both Robinson and Ries are extremely knowledgeable and meticulous when it comes to orthodontics. The thing that sets them apart, though, is that they’re also personable and genuinely care about all of their patients. The whole staff is so kind and the environment is great.   I’d recommend them to anyone and everyone who’s considering orthodontics for their kids or themselves– I’m in college and am SO glad I endured the braces. Trust me, just go for it!:) ”

    -- Courtney Engle
  • Being a part of Robinson and Ries was such a wonderful experience. The staff are all incredibly friendly and considerate. All the while it feels like you’re just having fun you’re actually getting a great smile too! I am incredibly grateful for them. They made the experience better than I ever thought it would be, and I’m sad that yesterday was my last appointment but I couldn’t be happier with the outcome of treatment! It’s a family-friendly environment that I would HIGHLY recommend to ANYONE. I promise, you will not be disappointed!

    -- Hailey Hausheer
  • (5 stars) Funtastic Experience!!
    Braces off!! This was a bittersweet moment for my 12 yr old (Taylen). It has been such a wonderful experience from start to finish. From consultation to the wonderful doctors and staff. We will truly miss our fun visits to your office.

    -- Pam L
  • “On December 11, 2013 my daughter had her braces removed, I’m still amazed every time I look at her.  She went from a cute little girl that wouldn’t show her teeth when she smiled to a beautiful teenager that lights up every time she smiles.  I can tell she’s so proud of her new smile.  Everyone in the office is so kind and they treat every patient and parent like a friend.

    When we came into the office on the big day, her name was on the board announcing her braces were coming off.  We took pics, Dr. Ries came to the lobby to talk to me about the dramatic change, it was an exciting day.  I’m so impressed with the office that I took my other daughter in for braces.  We’ll have another big day in the future.”

    -- Patty S.
  • “LOVE, love, love Robinson and Ries Ortho. They have given my kids wonderful orthodontic care in the most fun way possible!  From clean teeth contests to photo booths-there is never a dull moment in their office.  Even I look forward to going. 🙂  Both doctors are so knowledgeable, kind, and fun.  My kiddos adore them.  HIGHLY recommend! ”

    (5 stars)

    -- Nicole Summerall
  • “I was such a chicken on my big day! I was afraid my teeth would come off with the braces and that it would hurt… But…. after Dr. Robinson and Ms.Santana were done with me, I looked in the mirror and I almost cried! But tears of joy because I never expected my smile to look so good! Did I tell you I’m one of his “older” patients? And I never felt any pain at all through the whole process. Dr. Robinson and staff were always fun too. The office is such a wonderful, positive place. I recommend Dr. Robinson, Dr. Ries and their staff  to anyone who has reservations about orthodontic care… especially adults. Thanks to everyone! I will see ya for my retainer check up in a few months!”

    -- Laura T.
  • “Zoe had the best time today in the office! Thank you for treating her so well and making her feel extra special. She was absolutely beaming when we left and said she was having a “great day!” She was so excited to go back to school and share with her classroom! She also said the only bad part of her day is that she doesn’t get to come back to your office for a year. Now that’s saying a lot!”

    -- Heather
  • “Robinson and Ries are absolutely great with kids and put them at ease right away. Both of my children go here and they are always excited to go to their appointments!!”

    -- Jenny Jarboe Ferguson
  • “Dr. Ries and his assistant were very thorough in explaining Sarah’s treatment to her. They took the time to answer her questions and also went to great lengths to make her feel comfortable. I am always so impressed by how customer-friendly Dr. Robinson’s practice is. We are treated so great by everyone! During Sarah’s initial appointment, Dr. Robinson and Dr. Ries joked with Sarah about Justin Bieber and told her that she’d have a beautiful smile that would dazzle him someday. You should have seen her smile and blush! I’m so appreciative that the team makes it fun!!”

    -- Ann M.
  • “The office has a friendly, family feel and has been very good with handling even special needs. After my son had a serious sports injury, staff took extra time with him and us and sent him home with a present to occupy him during recovery in bed. He feels that everyone in the office knows him and likes him and that is saying a lot for a 13 year old boy!! We are starting the second of five kids at Robinson Orthodontics and we’ve referred all our friends discussing orthodontics to your office because we’ve had a positive experience.“

    -- Mary Kay N.
  • “From the minute you walk into the office, someone comforting is guiding you every step of the way. The whole appointment process is made easy, stress-free and fool proof for the patient – from the email and voicemail reminders, the electronic check in system at the office, the appointment itself….When I decided to get braces again as an adult, there were a lot of other choices. But after careful evaluation, I realized Dr. R was the only choice for me!”

    -- Stacia VanDyne
  • “I interviewed 3 orthodontists before my husband and I decided on Dr. Robinson. First, I wanted a Tooth Warrior — someone who had the expertise to give our daughter straight teeth and someone who would also educate her on how to take care of her teeth. I also appreciated how Dr. Robinson respected my time as a parent. I found him professional and thorough in his examination of her teeth and his recommendation of what we should do. Finally, in these tough economic times, I found his price reasonable and his prepay discount great! Thanks Dr. Robinson for being our daughter’s Tooth Warrior! You and your staff are outstanding!”

    -- Tanya Heath
  • “Dr. Robinson’s professional expertise in his field is what is most important to me, and the primary reason I have returned with each of my children, even though it requires a 180-mile round trip for each appointment.”

    -- Debra Nothdurft
  • “Now that I have “graduated” to life without braces, I just wanted to send you a note to let you know how much I have appreciated the great work you did to give me the smile I always wanted. You all are the best!”

    -- Lynn Bisges
  • “Thank you so much for creating such a wonderful smile for my daughter, Jesse. Her teeth look great, and we are both very happy with the results. I also want to thank you and all of your staff for the wonderful customer service. From the very beginning, we have been treated with friendliness, efficiency, and professionalism. We couldn’t ask for more. I would say your office is a model about how to run a business! Thank you again.”

    -- Marilyn and Jesse Lundervold
  • “With my son’s Asperger’s Syndrome, I always have a bit of anxiety about how his first interaction with someone new. It either makes or breaks the relationship, as he doesn’t change his mind easily if he has a poor first impression. Dr. Robinson instantly set my son at ease. He truly cannot wait until his next appointment or to get started with his orthodontic care.”

    -- Name Withheld
  • “I used to keep my mouth closed when I smile. Now even though I still have about a year left in my braces, I can already see my new smile! My braces give me the confidence to smile big!”

    -- Ben Armentrout
  • “I love my Robinson Orthodontics Smile more than the average patient because I’ve waited my whole life for it, proving it’s never too late to have the smile of your dreams.”

    -- Sherry Kilgore
  • “No better orthodontics office in the Midwest! 3/4 of our family have been in braces; that is Mom, teen son and teen daughter. We have fully trusted Dr. Robinson’s practice. What a great provider and a friend! R + R Orthodontics staff are caring and confident about doing a great job and meeting their patients needs. Thank you so much for your wonderful treatment over the years.”

    -- Mary J.
  • “In case you don’t get told this nearly enough, you guys are AWESOME! I think that your office would win, hands down, for the most customer friendly place I have EVER been … Thanks SO MUCH for making Robinson Orthodontics such a great place to visit. It even makes it bearable to part with such a big chunk of money. Not easy, but bearable!”

    -- Kathy Terlep

    -- Amy Imhoff
  • “Wanted to let you know how happy Taylor’s mother and I are with the work you did on Taylor. If anyone to let you know how efficient and well run your office appears to your customers. Everyone seems to know their role and do it very effectively. The time coming to your office was well worth it and the care much appreciated.”

    -- Greg Lloyd
  • “Our experience with Robinson+Ries has been a great experience. Everyone has always been understanding, informative and patient. I have been recommending anyone I know if they are in need of orthodontic care come here. Thank you!”

    -- Lydia Trampe
  • “It’s a fact that as we age, our teeth shift and can become quite crooked. That was true in my case, as I am a “senior” girl! Ha! After having a consultation with Drs. Robinson and Ries, I decided to proceed with Invisalign. I have never had a single regret, and I am so very pleased with the result. My teeth are straight and my overall dental health is much-improved. I would recommend Invisalign to everyone, even if you think you may be too old for it. You’re probably not!”

    -- Sherry
  • “My experiences at Robinson and Ries are always excellent. The office environment is professional, skilled, and focused on patient care and comfort. Everyone in the office goes out of their way to help patients. As a very non-traditional adult patient, I have continually been impressed with all of the people who work with Dr. Robinson. Employees are informative, answer all my questions, and are friendly, outgoing, and very helpful. I drive over 200 miles round-trip for my appointments and it is well worth it! I would recommend these doctors to anyone seeking exceptional orthodontic care in a friendly and professional

    -- Susan Shoaff-Ballanger
  • “I want to be an orthodontist” are the words out of my daughter’s mouth after our first visits at Robinson-Ries! I really can’t say enough about how positive our experience has been at this office –you provide a very upbeat environment along with instilling the utmost confidence in the level of orthodontic care/treatment that we receive. Thank you so much for all you do!

    -- Heidi R.
