“My daughter is on round two, and Dr. Thornton and his staff have been GREAT! I always have loads of questions, and they take the time to answer them. The whole office goes above and beyond to be sure we are getting what we need. My daughter really doesn’t mind her braces and I know it’s because of where she’s at. Thornton Orthodontics is a great place!” — Jenni S.

“Just finished our third phase of braces between two daughters. We have had nothing short of a perfect experience with Dr. Thornton and his wonderful staff. They have always treated us with kindness, they all know our names when we walk through the door, and the treatments have produced great results. I have recommended Dr. Thornton to several friends and they have all had the same great experience. Thank you, Dr. T and company, for being superb!” — Jeremy C.

“We love Dr. Thornton and his staff. From the moment our daughter walks in the door, she feels welcomed and is genuinely happy to be there.

The pricing is very competitive. The atmosphere in the office is fun and reassuring. Our daughter enjoys getting her braces checked and colors changed. The quality of Dr. Thornton’s work is excellent. We trust Dr. Thornton and his staff to do the very best for our child. The front desk staff is warm and genuine. We highly recommend Dr. Thornton and his team.” — Cindy D.

“Dr.  Thornton and his staff are wonderful! My son has been seeing Dr. Thornton for more than a year, and we have only had a great experience. The staff are helpful, kind, and professional. Dr. Thornton is patient with us worried parents and is a great educator. Our son’s pediatric dentist recommended Dr. Thornton and said that he sends his own kids to see him.” — Carmel L.

“Dr. Ben Thornton is the best! Both of my girls are currently being treated by him for braces. We drive an hour each way to his office because he has provided us with exceptional care and has a kind and caring office staff! When my oldest daughter started her first phase of braces at age ten, two other local orthodontists recommended she have four teeth pulled. This, she was not excited about and nor was I! She had an extreme overbite and cross bite; I knew that it would require some real work. We began looking for an alternate solution and found that with Dr. Thornton. He assured us that he could accomplish what needed to be done just as efficiently without extracting her teeth! Within a few weeks, her teeth began straightening and working into place. She was finished with her first phase after about a year and left with a beautiful smile! She is now in her second phase of orthodontics, back in braces after waiting for some teeth to fall out and come in. She is now 14 and has a gorgeous smile! My younger daughter has followed with a year of braces so far, and also has a beautiful and straight smile! I cannot express the amount of confidence he has given both of my girls! We are big fans of Thornton Orthodontics! I highly recommend them for your orthodontic care needs.” — Kayley K.

“I just got Invisalign® a couple months ago. Everyone at Thornton Ortho has been so kind and easygoing! Even though most of their clients are kids, they treat me as an adult. Another orthodontist was going to put me in the old-fashioned metal braces, for longer and more money! Eight weeks into wearing my aligners and I’m already seeing a difference! I have two young kids that have to come with me to most appointments and all the staff is so accommodating.” — Bree U.

“Both of my kids have been with Thornton Orthodontics for a few years now and we have never had a single complaint. The team is extremely professional yet friendly, and we even look forward to our appointments! They are patient and helpful and go out of their way to make things comfortable, pleasant, and affordable. Highly regarded and recommended!” — Rachel C.

“Thornton Orthodontics is a wonderful establishment and Ben Thornton is amazing, professional, and exceptional with children and adults! I first brought my pre-teen to Dr. Thornton after being referred by our dentist. Not only did they do a great job on her smile, but I returned to have them do my smile next! Now my two younger children are receiving treatment from Thornton Orthodontics, and I couldn’t be happier or any more pleased. To come back not once, but four times, really says something about the service and care they provide.” — Teri B.

“Our experience with Dr. Ben Thornton and staff has been exceptional. Our oldest son recently had his braces removed, and not only does he have a beautiful smile, it was a seamless process. Dr. Thornton is very knowledgeable and thorough, as is his staff, and they have the most innovative methods for straightening teeth to offer. Not only did they remember my son’s name with every visit, but mine as well, and they always explained exactly what the goal was after each appointment. I would recommend Thornton Orthodontics to anyone, and we will be back when my youngest son is ready for braces.” — Michelle R.

“Couldn’t have asked for a better orthodontic experience. As a 21-year-old, I was extremely nervous about getting braces, but knew I had to correct my smile. I went with the clear ceramic braces, which most people believed was a retainer at first glance. The staff makes you feel like family and had an honest interest not only in my smile but things going on in my life. Every assistant was extremely knowledgeable and seemed to really care about making me comfortable. Dr. Thornton laid out a great plan prior and every appointment went by smoothly. I can now say that my confidence has done a complete 180 due to the hard work of the staff.” — Eric A.
