Patient Testimonials

Maria H.

Olney, MD

Dr. Minahan is extremely professional and friendly and, more importantly, very honest and caring. My son has been a patient of Dr. Minahan for 2 years and now it's my daughters turn. Dr. Minahan's knowledge and skill bring me great peace of mind knowing that my children are in good hands. From a financial point of view, Dr. Minahan's costs are always very reasonable and competitive, and she only does work that is absolutely necessary. Billing and insurance have also been seamless. Dr. Minahan receives my highest recommendation and I am extremely happy with the results!

Dr. Minahan's attention to people, professionalism, and up to date knowledge of orthodontics made it wonderful to attend her clinic. My daughter almost looked forward to the appointments! Dr. Minahan's diligent and personable "bedside manner" made every step of the process clear to both child and parent. Her ability to infuse confidence, give compassion, and above all enthusiasm about each procedure made it possible for my daughter to not only obtain a healthy bite, but also a beautiful smile in a very short time.

Dr. Minahan's office staff, both clinically and administrative, are efficient, very friendly, approachable, and become friends overtime. Look no further for the best orthodontic team in the area!


David W.

Silver Spring, MD

This is absolutely the best possible orthodontic expertise. Dr. Minahan and her staff answered every question I had. Dr. Minahan formed a rapport with my son by treating him as an adult and explaining each and every step to him as well as myself. I recommend Lara Minahan and her team without reservation. By the way my son's teeth are beautiful!


Paula P.

Brookeville, MD

From the first contact with Ronda (office manager), I knew this practice was special. The entire staff and practice is the best in professionalism. But most important is the orthodontic care my daughter received. I was always honestly informed of her progress, or lack thereof, and felt so confident that the methods and appliances used would produce the best outcome. My daughter has a gorgeous smile now, but more important is her corrected bite and changed profile.

I thank her honestly for her honesty, integrity, and most of all her commitment to giving my daughter the best care possible. She feels like she's your favorite patient!

High marks all the way with Minahan Orthodontics and wonderful staff in the front and back! Dr. Minahan is the best at what she does. Thank you again!


Paul C.

Olney, MD

My son went through four orthodontists before Dr. Minahan took over his care. The moment we met her we knew that she was going to help our son get back his smile. She was professional, confident, knowledgeable, and ready to answer our questions while assuring us that all will be okay now. Dr. Minahan and her staff have created an environment that makes you feel that you are family. We highly recommend Dr. Minahan

Dr. Minahan is a wonderful orthodontist. She did such a wonderful job on my daughter's teeth. She is patient and very understanding. I would use her again. The office is very convenient and she had office hours that are very convenient for the kids in school!


Susana C.

Rockville, MD

As a parent, I was looking for a professional orthodontist that was trustworthy, patient, and accurate in terms of money investment/treatment results and time. And I confidently feel I was able to find these qualities and requirements in Dr. Lara Minahan's practice. I'm not able to put into words the happiness my daughter felt when she finished the first phase of her treatment, but I could tell by her confident smile and personality, that we took the right decision when we put our daughter's case in Dr. Minahan's hands. In fact we are following her for the second phase of our daughters treatment with high expectations and confident to reach our goals again.

I think that the fact Dr. Minahan was voted the best practice in MoCo speaks for itself. Minahan Orthodontics has absolutely nothing to improve. It's perfect in every way. We've been with this practice for 5 years; not once was there a problem. Both of my daughters have beautiful smiles now. Thank you Minahan Orthodontics!

My son was very concerned about having to wear braces in High School. Dr. Minahan and her staff were so understanding and able to make the entire process smooth and painless. Everyone in the office is friendly, caring and eager to answer any question or help resolve any problem. Dr. Minahan is a true professional and her and her staff genuinely care, which made a tough endeavor for my son seem routine. Thank You!

Dr. Minahan helped to literally transform the appearance of a young woman's smile! Her attention to every detail and her expert and professional manner were apparent at every stage of the process. We were fortunate to have found her right here in our community!


Melony B.

Olney, MD

We have been very pleased with Dr. Minahan. She is not only very professional, but friendly and kind. She walked us through every step of my daughter's orthodontic work and the results are wonderful. Dr. Minahan has gained our trust and I would recommend no other orthodontist in the area.


Ellen K.

Olney, MD

I can probably go on and on writing! I would recommend Minahan Orthodontics to anyone. I had started my process with the initial orthodontic group which sold to some other group, then to Dr. Minahan who I finally loved. Her and the team are the best. With the best approach, great personalities, 100% customer service, and very professional. What I liked most was that they are very understanding even when they knew I hated to keep my braces, I wanted a shorter time then they should've of been, they were supportive and listened, they were patient with me and my needs and they were not pushy. Today they took my braces out and I thanked Dr. Minahan and the team for their support and telling me to hang in there. Thank you.


John A.

Brookeville, MD

Professional, pleasant, efficient, considerate, and charming. What more could a patient ask for?


Jeff J.

Ashton, MD

My family has been very happy with the level of service we have received from Dr. Minahan and her staff. My son is just finishing a multi-year course of orthodontics and he and I were both impressed with Dr. Minahan's professionalism and the courteousness of her and her staff. I would highly recommend Minahan Orthodontics to anyone in the area that needs orthodontic services.


Paolina P.

Olney, MD

Dr. Minahan is a highly skilled and meticulous orthodontist. She corrected my son's severe over-bite and re-aligned his teeth to accommodate his small mouth. The before and after photos of my son are dramatic. He is very happy with his "new smile".


Ellen B.

Olney, MD

We found Dr. Minahan and her staff to be extremely professional, yet friendly and accessible. And, we were thrilled with the results after our son wore braces for less time than originally estimated!


Sandy A.

Sandy Spring, MD

Dr. Minahan is Olney's "best kept secret". However, she won't be a secret for long because my daughter's new smile will be giving her away. We will make sure that everyone knows who gave her that new smile!


Kyle L.

Laytonsville, MD

It was a wonderful experience with more than satisfactory results!


Ellen W.

Brookeville, MD

Our family has had both a wonderful experience and beautiful results with Dr. Minahan. My oldest child had a mouthful of tricky issues on which Dr. Minahan worked her magic! My second son needed just minor adjustments and, in both cases, Dr. Minahan approached each child with the same level of professionalism, expertise, dedication and care. My children's smiles are beautiful and they are so proud to share them! Even our new dentist complimented on the "beautiful job with alignment and adhesive removal". We couldn't have made a wiser choice when we decided to put our confidence in Dr. Minahan. She is truly a talented orthodontist, committed to providing the highest quality orthodontic care. She has a gentle nature, works in a professional manner and treats each patient with respect and care, which results in a trusting relationship. We feel fortunate to have had two of our children treated by Dr. Minahan and plan to return to her when other members of our family are ready for their smiles to be transformed!! We recommend her wholeheartedly.
