Patient Testimonials

Dr. Stevens and his incredible staff have earned their excellent reputation through years of service for their patients. Below are some patient testimonials that demonstrate the high level of care that Dr. Stevens and his staff provide.

I am so thankful for Dr. Stevens! I brought my daughter in for a free consultation and left with a wealth of knowledge, a free panoramic X-ray, and peace of mind. Dr. Stevens and his staff are very honest, friendly, and thorough. My daughter actually ended up not needing treatment, which was a welcome surprise since I was recommended by another orthodontist what I now recognize as unnecessary overtreatment. He welcomes patients who just need to be monitored at no charge. What a breath of fresh air to know there are still professionals out there who truly put the patient first. I cannot say it enough, but I am truly thankful that we made the appointment here, and I am forever grateful my child has been treated with such respect and care.

Dr. Stevens is a very knowledgeable orthodontist! He is currently overseeing my daughter’s braces. He and his staff are extremely friendly and patient. They answered all of our many questions. They accept interest-free payment plans, or you can pay in full for a 5% discount. They are even in-network with Metlife military insurance. I highly recommend Dr. Stevens for any braces needs! A+ service.

When I was ten, my orthodontist told my mother that a Herbst appliance would fix my overbite, so of course she spent tons of money to pay for it. Fast forward fifteen years and my overbite was just as bad until I came into Dr. Stevens’s. Between his excellent work and the work of the surgeons at Tripler, I am on my way to better bite and less overall pain.

I was referred to Dr. Stevens by a friend while searching for an orthodontist, shortly after moving to the island. From the beginning, Dr. Stevens was informative and knowledgeable concerning treatment options with my son and daughters. Being active duty military, my family and I have moved many times throughout my career, and my son had been to several orthodontists. He had braces off and on starting in the third grade, mainly due to what I was told was “a pretty extreme overbite.” We tried nearly every appliance and treatment available, and I spent thousands of dollars in the process. Dr. Stevens was able to correct my son’s overbite and whatever issues he had in less than two years, using the existing appliances. My son had his braces off just in time for his senior year in high school, and his teeth look amazing! The most useful tool Dr. Stevens possesses are his experience and knowledge. He was honest with me from the beginning and did not try to overcharge me for what he called “simple treatments.”I am still amazed that I spent so much time and money over the years trying to correct my son’s orthodontic issues, yet he was able to correct them in a fraction of the time and for a lot less money. I don’t believe that I could find an orthodontist that practices with such caring and honesty and with such expertise. I highly recommend Dr. Stevens; you will be satisfied with your results!

I could not be happier with Dr. Stevens and the staff at Hook orthodontics. My son came here from the mainland with braces still on, and I was going to pay out of pocket for continued care. Dr. Stevens spent over an hour with me, showing me different cases, reviewing articles, even with permission, showed me another young patient’s teeth without braces. With no charge, he removed my son’s “phase one” braces, and as Dr. Stevens reassured me 1,000 times, his teeth did fall naturally into place. He is honest, well educated, and current on orthodontic trends, will not do un-necessary orthodontic treatment, and his staff is always pleasant.

I came to Dr. Stevens after a small discussion with a friend about an orthodontist who told me that my daughter, who has lower jaw growing much faster than the upper needed to have few teeth removed or possible surgery to be able to have braces. Once my daughter heard that she was terrified and left the office crying nonstop. Of course, I thought if this was even worth any more if to go through all this to get her teeth straight. My friend referred me to Dr.Hook, and she said this doctor is great. I was hesitant because I thought another it will be a déja vu, another moneymaker! Surgeries, extractions, $7800 braces just like what I heard, and of course, quick in and out.

I said to myself, my friend is usually good about her recommendations and that I should just try it. When I went to Dr. Stevens’s appointment, we were surprisingly told that she is not ready for braces. That was a good start, and he took us to his office to explain why.

He started by saying that her lower jaw is growing much faster than the upper and continued to explain to us that if he even put braces and extracted a couple of teeth, nothing will be fixed unless her jaw stops growing and the problem persists. He then showed many photos of other kids as examples who had the same issue. He even showed us a computer animation of the issue of faster-growing jaw to educate us of how the teeth move in her case and obviously convinced us that the only solution is to wait until her lower jaw stops growing.

He told us that he was against extracting any teeth just to get it done and that it will be only a temporary fix, and quite frankly, he is not interested in doing for a reason to make money as some others do.

He has been checking her every year for the last 2.5 years, and he thought she needs to wait another two years. He is through working with my son, and we couldn’t be more grateful for his honest advice. I am sure there are other few orthodontists out there who would be as honest as him, but they are hard to find. For my son, the charge was much lower than I expected, and I was very surprised to pay only $4700. He explained to me that he is part of an organization that, based on my insurance, will cap the charges to make it affordable and not overwhelm parents.

Dr. Stevens and a very kind, patient, and frankly charismatic and cares about people. He takes his time to educate parents and gives them his best and honest professional advice about their children’s teeth condition. He is definitely their not for the money as some other doctors do. BYW, I was bombarded with calls from the previous doctor who wants to charges us $7800, but who knows how much more if her lower jaw keeps growing and she has to wear braces for a much longer time than expected…But thanks to Dr. Stevens’s honest opinion, I never wanted to have anything to do with that previous doctor. I felt it was about the money. Go try Dr. Stevens and I am 100% you will be satisfied with his work.

The staff here is so friendly. I’ve known Dr. Stevens for 4 1/2 years. He’s seen both of my daughters and he’s absolutely the best! He’s also very professional, affordable, and accommodating. He will go out of his way to make sure anything you need gets done. I highly recommend Dr. Stevens for any orthodontic treatment. A+ Service.

Dr. Stevens and the staff are so knowledgeable and accommodating. I have two kids in different stages of treatment, and they have met every need and concern we have had. They have been accommodating when we have had scheduling conflicts and always offer other appointment times, even at other locations, to meet our schedule. This office doesn’t oversell their services. They are honest and upfront with their services and always work for the patient and their needs. If you want quality orthodontics by a caring and professional staff, this is your place!

Dr. Stevens is great! He is undoing what my former ortho did to my teeth, which was traumatizing. If you are unhappy with your current ortho or looking for one to make you smile again, please contact him. He is patient and kind. He will listen and explain everything even though he runs a busy office. He is truly honest, knowledgeable, and a great person. I highly recommend him. His three offices are conveniently located for great results.

While we were in town on vacation, my son had a brace pop off on a Friday night. After attempting to clip the wire ourselves (unsuccessfully) we searched for an orthodontist with Saturday hours and found Hook. We took a chance and drove over to see if they could work us in first thing. Not only did they take care of the wire right away, they handled us free of charge. That’s a class act in my book. A++ for customer service.

I cannot express enough how satisfied I am with Dr. Stevens! He truly is an honest orthodontist, which unfortunately is so hard to find!! When it comes to just about anything, customers look for two major things, quality of work and cost. I entrusted Dr. Stevens with my son’s braces after visiting several orthodontists in the area. I was told time and again that Invisalign was the only way to go and also came with about a $7,500 price tag (on the lower end). After talking with Dr. Stevens, I learned how far more effective traditional braces are and additionally, the price was much more reasonable. I decided to trust Dr. Stevens and I am very happy I did. The process went exactly the way it was described, and the timeframe was nearly exact. The final product, my son’s smile, is phenomenal and I couldn’t be happier! Big Mahalo to Dr. Stevens and his team of professionals, you are all amazing!!
