"I was a patient of Dr. Nagel Sr. as a child and am now 39 when it was time that my children needed an orthodontist there was no question where they would be going. Lucky us Dr Nagels son is now in the business and he is just as amazing as his Dad!!! My children are never nervous to go and I am always treated with love and respect. Whenever possible I recommend Nagel Orthodontics to anyone who will listen to me!!"

"We LOVE Nagel Orthodontics!! I have 4 children -- all have been with Dr. Nagel.
From day one, we were treated like family., from Dr. Nagel Sr. and Jr., and the entire office staff. With each child I was given "options" on how to proceed with their teeth, what we needed to focus/fix immed and what could wait... and different payment plans were available.
Making appointments was easy, and with 2 offices and early morning hours available we were always accommodated. Even "emergency" visits were easy to schedule same day (if a bracket broke, etc..).
Even with 4 children, the office has never canceled an appointment, and we have never had long wait time to see the Dr.
The office staff and the Dr.s are wonderful, professional, and they really care about their families they treat!"

"My son completed his orthodontia program and most recently went in to check on how his teeth are doing. Drs. Nagel fixed his crazy teeth (ha) and created a retainer (and somehow got him to actually use it every night) and they did it all with a sense of fun and really treated him like a VIP. I see them treating all the kids like that, it's nice to see. On the day my son's braces were removed, all the staff and doctors came and sang and gave him balloons and a bottle of sparkling juice. And they really care, with great follow-up and emergency "just stop by if you break a band" availability. We highly recommend them."

"My parents brought me to Dr Nagel in 1981. He put braces on me and straightened out my teeth. 20 years later I brought my son to Dr Nagel and he took care of his orthodontic needs.
Even today, 33 years later, I still go in for retainer adjustments.
Thank you Dr Nagel for a lifetime of care!

"About 30 years ago, I went to Dr. Nagel to get a consultation cost for braces for myself as an adult. My financial situation was very challenging as a single parent, however, Dr. Nagel worked out a monthly payment plan that I could afford on a tight budget. The dental work was done in such excellence, and wonderful friendly staff. Recently, I had to revisit Dr. Nagel's office to obtain new retainers, and found his son to be wonderful, caring and superior work as well. Love you both!"

"I came for a second opinion for my daughter and ended up having an amazing experience. The doctor was so great with my daughter that while he stepped out of the room mid exam she asked if we could switch. In his explanation of treatment he went over details and options that the other orthodontist didn't even cover. It was refreshing. I would recommend this office to anyone needing orthodontic work."

"I got 4 teeth extracted last week at Dr. Nakano's office. Getting an IV general anesthesia was bit scary at first. After the oral surgery, the wire got moved and the end was sticking out and poking my mouth. So, Nagel Orthodontics was able to schedule me in right away to fix the wire problem. Dr. Jeff and Joanne fixed the wires. Everyone at the office are very friendly and nice. If tightening of the wires didn't hurt so much, I would have given them a perfect 10!"

"The skilled doctors and staff, and the efficiency of the office are the main reasons I chose Nagel Orthodontics. An added benefit is walking into the bright and cheerful office, especially when arriving after a 2-hour drive or a hectic day at the office."

"We can't say enough good things about Nagel Orthodontics. To have two amazing Dr's and to have the staff they have speaks volumes of how great of a place this is and how amazing the Dr's are reflects on their staff. Nicole is just truly amazing so very helpful and they all are, so kind and helpful. Our kids love everyone there.
Would recommend everyone to go here ;)"

"Nicole was extremely helpful and informative during our visit. I called for directions and they were perfect. The keurig water on the patio was empty and she filled it right away. She even gave us one of her personal water bottles so that I could cool down the drinks for the boys. The super sweet lady who did the impressions for the boys was all smiles when she came out with each of the boys and she told me how well they both did. After the appointment we saw Dr. Jeff, who connected so well with the boys. Both boys are getting braces, so we will be at your office a lot and we are looking forward to our long relationship with the entire staff. From the first moment the boys met Dr. Nagel every interaction has been positive. The boys initially had a consult with their dentist's orthodontist. Immediately after we left that appointment I asked them if they would meet my orthodontist and they said yes. After they met Dr. Nagel they both said they wanted him to be their orthodontist. They liked him a lot! During this last visit they were very excited that they were able to meet Dr. Jeff. They loved meeting him and thought he was just as awesome as his dad. Thank you to your entire staff for making this a positive experience for our family!!"

"Dr. Nagel and his staff are wonderful. The doctor is always on time, the office is always appealing and the staff are all friendly and helpful. I trust them completely and I have been going to him for many years. He corrected my TMJ without surgery and keeps my retainers adjusted so it doesn't return."

The front desk staff are so friendly and the back staff are very efficient and kind. Dr. Nagel knows how to relate to kids and you can see that he really enjoys his job by the way he interacts with all the of the kids. We are very happy with our choice of an orthodontist. Thank you, Dr. Nagel!"

"I think the greatest gift I ever got was meeting everyone at Dr. Nagel’s office. I am so happy to have gotten my braces done here. I honestly did not want to do this a second time, since the first orthodontist did not fix the problem to my surprise. But I am glad I was encouraged to do it by Dr. Muradian, and once I met Miss Vicki, Miss Nicole, Miss Claudia, and all the ladies in the office, the deal was sealed.
Dr. Nagel took the time to explain everything to me and I can say that I am very confident this time that the situation has been fixed. I received quite an education during the course of my treatment. Valuable life lessons that I am grateful to be taught.
For me, this truly has been a wonderful experience, and I miss my braces, we were together for so long both times, I felt like I was missing a dear friend.
This week I finally got my bleaching kit and that is very exciting for me, I have waited a long time to do this next step.
I am grateful for the pay as you go policy, because most dental work is cash up front. It was a big and worthwhile expense and one I will never, ever regret.
Thank you for taking the time to help me achieve my best alignment and smile.
To be honest this is the best goodie I could ever get; anything else is whip cream on top!
It means the world to me.

"We have been with Nagel Orthodontics for several years. Our oldest Zack finished with braces last year and his teeth look beautiful. Rachel is 3 weeks away from the braces being removed and we have been amazed with the results. The greatest success story has been Nathan. He was born with a bi-lateral cleft lip and palate and the orthodontics have been nothing short of substantial. In two years, Nate's mouth has completely transformed and this is only the beginning stage. I so appreciate how both Dr. Nagel's work with us and UCLA for Nate's care. Thank you to all at Nagel Orthodontics!"

"We have sent all of our four children to Drs. Nagel, actually one went twice because he chose not to wear a retainer! We can not say enough great things about them. They are so professional, personable and caring. They know your name as you walk through the door and the Drs. come out to give you an update as to your child's progress. They have been great with working out personal issues and scheduling. The office has just an overall friendly atmosphere!"

"Our experience with Nagel Orthodontics has been spectacular. All of the staff are extremely friendly and knowledgeable. There is no ridiculous time spent in a waiting room and our appointments always move along swiftly. We started decades ago with Dr. Norman and have had the pleasure of reconnecting recently with our children's visits. Dr. Jeff is just as friendly as Dr.Norman and we are very pleased to receive the same high level of care from him as well."

"We were very happy with all our dealings with both Dr. Nagels. Our 3 sons all had braces and all the work was done by Dr. Nagel and their wonderful staff. We were very happy with the results. The office staff is wonderful. Well-informed and always ready to help with any questions. Nicole is an absolute doll!! Not to take anything away from anyone in the front office, they are all wonderful but Nicole is something special and goes out of her way to help and she is so pleasant to talk to you.
I would recommend Dr. Nagel's team of dental professionals to anyone!!"

"My granddaughter, Kailey Brown, came to live with me when she was 9. (5 years ago). It was obvious that she would need orthodontics, but not immediately. After a few years I started to ask around (friends/family)(my son recommended the Nagel group). We "interviewed" several orthodontists and decided on Nagel Orthodontics. And I could not have made a better choice. From complete confidence in their expertise and technical ability, they have proven to be the best doctor/dentist office I have ever been in - always completely friendly and courteous (Doctors and staff), helpful, flexible to our time issues, on time (usually early) and ready to do whatever it took to take care of the patient. It was really clear that the top priority was to provide excellent care to the patient, and that all other issues were of secondary importance. Thank-you to Nagel Orthodontics for making this an easy and painless (no pun intended) journey."

"I was in my late 30s and had developed a serious case of TMJ. I was in pain all of the time and was home with a toddler. A previous dentist had worsened the condition considerably. That was followed by a so-called TMJ specialist who really made a mess. I arrived at Dr. Nagel's office a woman in pain. His evaluation of me confirmed it was going to be difficult. Braces were the answer along with a series of splints. The braces came off four years later and Dr. Nagel had done the impossible. He had the skill and knowledge to return my bite to normal. Post-braces care has continued as needed. Dr, Norm Nagel is a caring, warm, gentle man whose presence in my life has reassured me that people like him do exist. I would recommend his office for adult TMJ, which is a tough condition to successfully treat. My life was changed so much for the better. We are lucky to have Dr, Nagel in our community."

"First, we LOVE Dr. Nagel and his office staff :)
I am a mother of 4 children, and yes, all 4 needed braces.
Our story began with 2 prior Orthodontists. We had 3 children in "phase 1", could not get appointments together, had long wait times in the office and it was not easy to get quick appointments for broken brackets, etc.,
Then we found Dr. Nagel!! We have never had to wait, appointments are available as early at 7:30am and late evening in both offices (Simi and Thousand Oaks). The office staff is happy, friendly and actually remember my kids by name! My children feel like they are part of the Nagel Family when we are in the office. We were able to make a payment plan that worked for our family, and the staff was wonderful with billing issues to insurance. Both Dr. Nagel's are wonderful with children and adults, and are wonderful at explaining what is happening at each visit, explaining progress and what to look for with each visit. 3 of my 4 are now done, and look amazing. I must say when my last child finishes, we will be sad to leave the Nagel Family."

"It took a little longer than expected my daughter’s had particularly stubborn teeth. Dr. Nagel is also a perfectionist, like myself, so we hung on until they were exact. It was worth all the extra time. In fact, I'm so thrilled with both of their smiles.
I don't think I can remember the last time I was so pleased with a business, doctor, or any other service. Seriously, from top to bottom, Dr. Nagel and his staff run a great practice.
- Not that it matters, but his office is impeccable. Clean. Modern. But comfortable. The office is also equipped with some seriously fancy equipment- cool x-rays equipment and other gadgets.
- His front office staff are always courteous, helpful and generally lovely. I was never ignored when I went up to the desk, there were never any scheduling or billing issues, and they were very efficient at their jobs.
- The assistants in the back are awesome. I saw so many of them over so many months, and not a single one was someone I wouldn't want working on my girls teeth. They were friendly, competent, sometimes funny, and always careful. I hope Dr. Nagel pays them well they are a key part as to why I feel so awesome about this office.
- Dr. Nagel is also a bit of an artist. If one can be an artist in contouring teeth. It's amazing. My daughters had seriously odd shaped, pointy in all the wrong ways, crooked, weird teeth. No more. In addition to being straight, they are now perfectly shaped. I never imagined that they would look this amazing.
Most of all Dr. Nagel is patient, funny and flexible. We love him and his Staff we miss them dearly since the girls are much older now, and have beautiful teeth!"

"Our entire family absolutely loves Dr Norman Nagel as well as Dr Jeff Nagel and the entire staff at Nagel Orthodontics. Their expertise of orthodontics, professionalism and amazing customer service are all excellent. I have referred friends here who have had horror stories at other ortho offices and all agree with me when it comes to Dr Nagel. When you walk in the entire staff welcomes you like family and you quickly learn they are doctors you can trust. I cannot say enough good things about our experience with this orthodontics office. They are truly a light in our community."

"We were referred by our dental office and we have been so happy with both doctors and the entire staff. Vicki and Nicole make bringing my boys for their appointments like going to see friends. Nancy is always so friendly and seems truly interested in Owen and Noah's lives. Noah getting his braces off is an important moment in his life and your office made it so special for him. My kids laughed when I got fitted for a new retainer, but I thought I should lead by being a good orthodontic example. Soon we will be bringing our daughter in to remedy her crooked smile. The Krapff family is most certainly a Nagel Orthodontic family. Thanks again for everything."
