At Altherr Orthodontics, we strive to make your orthodontic experience something positive! Good or bad, we need to hear about your experience; here are some comments from our other happy patients and parents!
“My son had his braces removed yesterday after 13 months, and what a beautiful smile he has been given. We are so pleased with Dr. Altherr and his wonderful, professional, and friendly staff. I am so pleased that I am now currently a patient getting my lower teeth straightened. He is excellent at his job, and the cost is very affordable. My daughter is next for braces. We live in the Garner area, and Dr. Altherr and his staff are worth the drive for us (35 minutes). Before we decided on Dr. Altherr, my son and I met with two other orthodontists. When we met with Dr. Altherr, we both were sure we should choose his practice. We have not been disappointed.”

“All three of my children have had braces over the last six years, and I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Dr. Altherr to everyone. I have known Dr. Altherr since elementary school, and even then, he paid great attention to the details, so it was an easy choice for me to send my children to him. His staff is very welcoming and friendly. The office is well-organized and easy to work with scheduling appointments. We don’t have to wait when we arrive, which is very important as well. It is a happy place and most importantly, my children’s teeth turned out perfectly!”

“My son was a difficult case; an initial consultation with another orthodontist was discouraging, learning that he has short roots. Dr. Alther’s team was very helpful and made us feel at home from the start. Dr. Alther did a wonderful job, not just explaining his case but fixing/straightening my son’s teeth. I did not expect his teeth to be so straight; he is smiling a lot more! Thank you, Dr. Altherr, for taking my son and giving us his beautiful smile!”

“I’ve been in dentistry for 20 years and Dr. Altherr and team are the best in the business. Thank you all for taking good care of our girl.”

“I just got my braces off yesterday, and my teeth look amazing! They took their time to be sure that I wasn’t in pain when they removed the glue. They care deeply for their patients/clients and it’s a really fun environment. It’s super kid-friendly and the staff act more like a family.”
— Whitney A.
“Dr. Altherr and his staff are fabulous! Both of my girls were patients there and they now have the most beautiful teeth. The office is clean and very inviting. The staff is very friendly, patient, and always very positive and informative. My girls always enjoyed their visits and we recommend Dr. Altherr and his practice to everyone! We were so pleased with our choice for a great, local orthodontist!”
— Karen D.
“We have two kids who just got their braces off after treatment with Dr. Altherr, and we couldn’t be happier! Dr. Altherr always took the time to explain what our options were and his office was very accommodating in trying to schedule the two kids’ appointments together when possible. Dr. A has a wonderful rapport with all of the kids I’ve seen him interact with and the staff seems to enjoy their jobs, which translates into wonderful customer service! I recommend his office wholeheartedly.”
— Chris M.
“Great experience! I needed a new retainer and Dr. A asked helpful, insightful questions to figure out which kind would get my teeth moved into exactly the right positions. And, he’s the only doctor who’s ever been able to help me understand my uneven smile and give me a possible solution, even down to a personal referral. Thanks so much!”

“Five of my kids had braces from Dr. Altherr’s (so that five star is really 5x5 stars). He’s a genuine and professional orthodontist, always kind and respectful. We’ve known him and his staff for more than ten years and can confirm that service is timely. My family (and their beautiful smiles) back him and his staff up 100%.”
— Aldrea G.
“Dr. Altherr and his staff run an impressive practice. Everyone takes the time to explain things in a way we laypeople can understand. They work very hard to accommodate patient needs and schedules. And, of course, they provide high-quality care with top-notch results. We are very satisfied with our experience and would recommend Dr. Altherr and his practice to anyone looking for an orthodontist.”
— Ned B.
“We LOVE Dr. Altherr! Both my children had braces and both had wonderful experiences! My son had a very difficult situation that Dr. Altherr had to deal with—not only were his teeth a mess but his front permanent tooth had been knocked out, put back in, and ultimately surgically removed. Dr. Altherr spent a lot of time helping us through the process. He used my son’s braces to not only straighten all his teeth but also to help camouflage the gap left from the front tooth during the replacement process. He was supportive every step of the way, even coming in on a day the office was closed to reapply front braces after one of my son’s oral surgeries. Dr. Altherr and his entire office staff have been so supportive and caring! They are wonderful to work with and I recommend Dr. Altherr to everyone!”
— Kelly J.
“Being a teenager with braces is tough enough. Having an orthodontist and caring staff who are patient, kind, and responsive is important. My parents and I appreciated the consultation and options. The payment plans make it affordable for my parents. All in all, a pretty good experience. I look forward to my new smile soon!”
“My biggest worry was my HFA son (not very verbal) who was resistant to getting ‘braces,’ and even denying a previous orthodontic dentist from looking in his mouth! Immediately after meeting Dr. Altherr and staff, he was comfortable and at ease. During subsequent visits, this comfort continued, which made me the happiest mom. Now his braces are off, he is smiling and proud. Very satisfied mom!”
“In talking with friends, I knew braces could be a very expensive task, so I did not take finding the right practice for my family lightly. I was so impressed with your staff’s knowledge of insurance coverage and how to navigate each different company. But over and above that, we are greeted by name when we walk in the door, and I love that each time we visit, I get a full report from the person who just treated my child, and updates on the progression and what to expect between visits. I appreciate friendly staff who truly enjoy treating children!”
— Kemp C.
“We transferred to Dr. Altherr from California. His prices were much more reasonable than other orthodontists we visited. His offices are very nice. His staff is professional and personable. We’ve been pleased with the service we’ve received from them.”
— Karen V.
“Just wanted to let everyone know that this is the best office I have been to in a long time. We moved down here in 2006 from Texas and after several opinions on my son’s braces. His knowledge and conservative options for treatment has sold me to his practice. On top of being a great doctor, his staff is extremely comforting and very easy to talk to. They are very professional, but act as your friend as well. My children always look forward to their next visit. I would highly recommend this office to whoever may be interested in braces!”
