Meet your Bakersfield Orthodontic Team

Meet The team

At Thurman Orthodontics we believe that teamwork begins and ends with becoming a family. Every member of our team is dedicated to making sure that you not only get the healthy and beautiful smile you deserve, but also that each time you walk through the door you are greeted with a warm and friendly face. We genuinely care for each of our patients and truly enjoy the opportunity to be a part of their lives. First and foremost, we will take care of YOU. Whether you need to be seen for a weekend emergency, have a treatment question you need answered, or simply a caring ear to listen. We are here to provide you with not only a higher standard of patient care and service to the Bakersfield community, but also with an orthodontic family while in and after treatment.

Your Treatment Coordinators

Meet our Treatment Coordinators, Jenny and Amanda, and our amazing Records Coordinator, Jackie! These ladies will greet you at your first appointment and set the stage for the top notch care that will be provided throughout the entire course of treatment. They are knowledgeable, attentive, and here to make your experience smooth and convenient from your initial exam, until the day your treatment is started. They are here to do anything and everything for you. While coordinating care with your general dentist, making sure our treatment is affordable with your budget, and scheduling your first appointments, you are sure to feel embraced and loved from the moment you step into their office.

Your Front Office Team

Rest assured that you will be greeted by this smiling team every time you walk through the door. Eden and Natasha strive to make sure that each appointment works well with your busy schedule. They understand that your time is precious, and work to make sure that our schedule provides you with the most efficient use of your day. Dana is our office manager, and in the 26 years that she has been with the practice her generosity and outgoing personality has established the sense of warmth and love projected from team to patients. Kristin and Felicity run our Financial Department and will be working with you to make sure that together we are able to provide payment arrangements that work with your budget. They are always well organized and very professional, which truly makes each and every patient feel completely comfortable in getting their treatment started. Together these ladies make one dynamic team!

Your Clinical Assistants

There is never a dull moment with these ladies, and they are one of the main reasons our patients look forward to their appointments! They are all highly trained and skilled in delivering the highest quality clinical care possible. They work closely with Dr. Thurman at your appointments to make sure your treatment is a huge success. As a group, you won’t find a more caring, knowledgeable, and fun clinical team! Their skills are the reason our patients finish their treatments with such astonishingly beautiful smiles, and have an average wait time of less than five minutes at each appointment!
WE ARE REALLY EXCITED THAT THEY ARE PARTICIPATING IN MAKE-A-WISH® AND HAVE SUCH A DEEP SINCE OF COMMUNITY.
