State of the Art Orthodontic Office in Bakersfield


What Sets Us Apart

Service. Experience. Affordability. Community.

These four pillars support Thurman Orthodontics’ mission of bettering lives and brightening futures through beautiful, more attractive smiles.


At Thurman Orthodontics, we are legendary for our customer service and strive to exceed your expectations in every way possible. Our simple and painless process of getting braces or Invisalign is designed to keep you smiling from check in to check out, and every step in between! Here you are truly treated like family. Dr. T’s “open doctor policy” means that he is available before, during or after all appointments to keep you fully informed about treatment progress or answer any questions you may have. Come in and see for yourself, we’re confident you will not only see but “feel” the difference our patients rave about!


Tired of boring, sterile medical offices with rude staff and long wait times? We are too! With jobs, kids, family obligations, and the hustle and bustle of everyday life, we know our patients have busy lives. We work hard to run on time, and are proud to say that our patients average wait time is less than 5 minutes! We have created a fun and relaxed office atmosphere that is designed for you to enjoy your visits throughout your journey to a beautiful new smile! We want your visits here to be more than just another appointment, but rather an experience you will truly enjoy. Have you gotten used to being treated like a chart number at doctors offices by rude staff that don’t seem to care? Quite the opposite here. With us, you matter, and you’ll always be greeted with a warm smile…we promise!


Looking for a perfect smile that doesn’t break the budget? We believe anyone should be able to afford braces so we’ve designed our payments with that in mind. Our adjustable monthly payments make your perfect smile a reality. What’s more is that your first appointment is absolutely free! What are you waiting for… give us a call, we’d love to meet you!


Dr. T and his team live by Sir Winston Churchill’s view of life: “We make a living by what we get, we make a life by what we give.” A core value of the Thurman Orthodontics philosophy is to do everything they can to make Bakersfield, and the world, a better place. Whether they are serving meals to those in need or walking for a cause, you can see Dr. Thurman and his team “giving back” to their wonderful community several days a month.
