Best orthodontist ever!

“Dr. Hurst is great! Office staff is super friendly. We are always in and out quickly (and with appointments before school). We would definitely recommend Dr. Hurst. You couldn’t ask for a better orthodontist!”

— Anika L.


“This is the second child I have had Hurst Orthodontics put braces on, and I have to say I HAVE NEVER been to a dentist who knew his patients the way Dr. Hurst does. The whole experience from the time we walk into the door until the time we leave is wonderful and I can say this has happened every single visit and I have been coming here for a couple of years now. Thank you, Dr. Hurst and staff, for making going to the dentist a comforting experience for my children.”

— Jaedyn L.

Beyond the Best

“Dr. Hurst and his staff go above and beyond to help in any way they can! Dr. Hurst even calls to see how you’re doing when you have procedures done that may have side effects, like a sore mouth. Love the entire team.”

— Dawson

“Look no further. Hurst Orthodontics is the ONLY place I would ever send my children. Dr. Hurst and the staff are amazing. If we have a wait, it is never long. When we have questions, they are always answered and not rushed. Dr. Hurst cares about his patients, even before and after hours.”

— Kathleen I.


“My son Zachary is on the autistic spectrum. He has some unusual sensory issues. The team at Hurst Orthodontics is amazing at explaining to Zachary what needs to be done and they address his concerns with kindness and compassion.”

— Zachary C.

First Visit!

“This was my first visit with my daughter, and I was very pleased with the staff. The consult with Dr. Hurst was surprising; the doctor took the time to explain everything that was going on with my daughter’s teeth and she was very comfortable with him. Thanks for a great visit!”

— Keelyn

Outstanding Service and Caring Folks!

“I had Dr. Hurst ten years ago when I was in high school. Recently, I’ve had some dental pain and decided to get a consultation. Dr. Hurst and his staff gave me great suggestions, a walk-through of the work, and a total package breakdown. They also provided me with three options of payment so that it will work with my budget! When I decide to get the work done, I’ll definitely be going with Dr. Hurst! I couldn’t be happier! Thank you, Dr. Hurst and staff! I look forward to seeing you again!”

— Ashley

Amazing Adventure!

“I love this office! It’s just so peaceful and you get a sense of calm from the moment you walk into the office to the time you spend in the chair. My daughter, my son, and myself have all been patients here and I would definitely recommend Hurst Orthodontics to everyone.”

— Matthew P.

Great service!

Excellent Customer Service

“Professional, courteous staff. We were treated like a member of the family. We were impressed with the time that the orthodontist spent with us. We never felt rushed and were well-informed by the end of our FREE consultation. Please visit Dr. Hurst before choosing an orthodontist ... you will be glad you did!”

— Anonymous

A+ Practice

“Wonderful practice. Wonderful treatment from the time you enter the door. Appointments run on schedule and staff is exceedingly helpful. Dr. Hurst has wonderful results and a technically competent team. Wouldn’t think of going anywhere else.”

— Kayla

— Roy H.

Excellent Staff

“My son and I visited Dr. Hurst’s office for a consultation on 4/14/12. The appearance of the office was comfortable, clean, and inviting. The front desk staff is friendly and welcoming. Dr. Hurst is amazing! Friendly, funny, open, and made my son feel very comfortable. They were clear about all treatment steps as well as cost. We are absolutely going with this office for my son’s treatment!”

— Scott W.

Enjoy going to the orthodontist! Really!

“Dr. Hurst and the staff make going to the orthodontist as painless as possible and treat each patient more like friends than customers. We highly recommend them.”

— Christopher M.

Why go anywhere else?

“The experience our family has had with Hurst Orthodontics surpasses any expectations I have ever had regarding orthodontics. I had braces when I was 12 and then again when I was 36. It is evident every time you step in the office how much they care about you and treat you like a person, not just a patient. This is important. My daughter recently had to have an expander in her mouth. The way this staff treats young children is beyond amazing! They care so much about these little kids and want the best for them. They have always done whatever they could to make me comfortable and as pain-free as possible. Gentle, gentle, gentle! I can’t imagine ever going anywhere else. My only disappointment? That Dr. Hurst can’t be my regular dentist, too! There is NO PLACE as wonderful as Hurst Orthodontics.”

— Zoey H.

What a great smile!

“Dr. Hurst and staff, thank you so much for the orthodontic care that my son received during the past few years. Your personal care and professionalism was a pleasure for my son and me. His smile is even more beautiful and he enjoys smiling now. Thanks again!”

— Anonymous

— Richelle

Great Experience

“The Hurst Orthodontics family is the only place for braces!”

— Brooke

I wouldn’t go anywhere else!

“I just can’t rave enough about Hurst Orthodontics. I was told up front exactly what needed to be done and the cost to do it. The reception desk always greets us with a smile and Dr. Hurst himself always leaves us with one. Not to mention the beautiful smile my daughter is sporting now!”

— Cassie A.

Great Work!

“Dr. Hurst and his staff are always pleasant, but this time the braces were for myself, and not my children. Being an older client (haha), and having major teeth/gum issues over the past six months made me a bit gun shy. However, I was put at ease, and have the utmost confidence in his team.”

— Julie E.

What a Surprise!

“Hurst Orthodontics exceeded my expectations solely from a first visit. I’ve never enjoyed the thought of anything pertaining ‘dentists,’ but they made me very comfortable. I smiled and laughed the entire time that I was there. They made me feel as if they were really interested in, not only my teeth and possible treatment, but me, overall.”

— Mariah

My Teeth

“When I got my braces on for the second time, I wasn’t sure if I wanted them again. I have had them on for a week and they feel fine now. They hurt for the first four days. I had a wonderful experience at Hurst Orthodontics.”

— Caylee C.

Service with a smile!

“The staff, from beginning to the end of my son’s appointment, was great. The steps of our appointment were explained thoroughly and I was very happy with the service we received. Dr. Hurst overdid himself in making sure that my son understood the treatment as well. Great office and fantastic staff!”

— Jesse

Very Friendly

“The staff was extremely friendly and I can’t wait to start treatment! Thanks for all of your help!”

— Stephanie Y.

Never too old!

“At 43, after wanting braces since I was 13 (30 years) I finally did it and my teeth are beautiful! Sorry I waited so long. Thank you, Dr. Hurst!”

— Debra H.

Wonderful Experience

“The staff is very friendly and helpful. Dr. Hurst always took the time to say hi and ask how we were. He always had a smile and was very pleasant to deal with. The entire office atmosphere was pleasant and friendly. We couldn’t have asked for a better experience, and Alex’s teeth look amazing!”

— Alex P.

Wonderful Office! Great staff!

“Dr. Hurst and his staff have taken extremely good care of us, we transferred from an orthodontic office where we were unhappy, and we couldn’t have made a better choice than Dr. Hurst! I have, and will continue to recommend him to all of my friends and family.”

— Kendall


“Hurst Orthodontics is a great place. Friendly, quick, easy, and overall a great place to have an orthodontist.”

— Keagan

Hurst Orthodontics is the best!

“I had to get braces for a second time as an adult. A friend recommended Dr. Hurst and I couldn’t be happier. The whole process has been great and I now have beautiful straight teeth again! Dr. Hurst and his staff are the best!”

— Margaret L.

Love This Team!

“I knew from the moment I called to schedule a consultation that Dr. Hurst’s team would be a great fit for our family. While scheduling a consultation appointment, they were very helpful in answering all my questions. During the consultation, they took a lot of time getting to know our son and us. Dr. Hurst and his team were very friendly and extremely helpful in explaining every step of our coming two-year journey through braces. Their office staff is very organized. After leaving their office, my family felt very confident in Hurst Orthodontics.”

— Seth S.

Confident Smiles

“I’m very impressed with the professionalism and outstanding service that Dr. Hurst and his staff provide to their patients. I have recommended Dr. Hurst and his staff to other friends and family members. It’s always a great confident feeling when you know your smile is the best it can be.”

— Edward T.

Service that Always Produces a Smile

“If you are looking for an orthodontist to help you practice smiling, this is the place to go. The staff is cheerful and professional. The use of Internet communication for appointments and other forms of communication is outstanding. They make you feel so welcome that you almost can’t wait for the next appointment. All service providers could take lessons from the Hurst Orthodontics group. Definitely best in class.”
