Hi! My name is Kelcey and I’ve been part of Dr. Herman’s team for a little over 13 years now. Let me tell you a little bit about the Dr. Herman I know….I’ve worked for orthodontists in the past and I can tell you that there’s no place like Dr. Herman’s office or Dr. Herman! The entire staff and I truly love coming to work everyday! Dr. Herman has created an environment that’s upbeat, friendly and full of energy! The minute I met Dr. Herman, I knew he lived to create amazing, wide smiles for all of his patients! His passion for orthodontics is contagious (as well as his sense of humor)! You will see it on our team – we are all smiles!
Dr. Herman grew up in Santa Clara, California near San Francisco. He went to San Jose State in California where he wrestled four years. He still loves the sport and coaches young wrestlers at a local high school. Dr Herman went to dental school at Emory University in Atlanta and then did a 2 year Dental General Practice Residency at Gallup Indian Medical Center. A few years later he was off to a three year Orthodontic Residency at the University of North Carolina. When you come to the office you will notice he is a big Carolina Tar Heel fan!
Dr. Herman and his wife Mary fell in love with the Four Corners in the 80's and decided to make it their home. Mary and Dr. Herman have been married for 36 years and have two grown and married sons with two infant granddaughters! Mary is a big part of what makes the office so great! She makes everyone feel welcome and relaxed! Dr. Herman and Mary are so down to earth and easy to talk to – you will see why year after year Dr. Herman’s office is voted best orthodontic office in the Four Corners by the readers of the Farmington Daily Times! I’m proud to work for Dr. Herman because he goes out of his way to make every patient feel great and proud to show off their smile! I can assure you that you will feel comfortable the minute you walk through our doors! That’s what I love most about working with Dr. Herman—every patient we meet becomes part of our Four Corners family.

Meet Our Team
Patients of the Week
"I chose Jared as Patient of the Week because his transformation shows the difference between results with traditional braces and our results with the high tech Pitts 21 braces. Notice the increased width of Jared's smile and his more handsome looking smile line (smile arc)."
"Taneesha's smile includes all of the factors that result in a superior looking smile. I believe that a smile should show 12 teeth. Most other orthodontist's smiles show just 6 teeth. I love the look of the wider smile."
"Cataya had a really narrow smile so it was important that I widened her smile in additional to straightening her teeth. While other orthodontists would be happy giving her a smaller, six tooth smile, I was pleased with her new 12 tooth smile."
"I love that I was able to treat Anisa without any extractions or expanders. I made it very easy for her to achieve a wide beautiful smile in only a year and a half."
Yasandi and Judith
"I am so pleased on how I widened each of their smiles and corrected each of their severe deep bites. I also love how I changed each of their flat smiles to a beautiful smile arc. "
Tylia & Trayo
"The pictures and video says it all. Amazing results and amazing level of self confidence from this sister and brother combination of Tylia and Trayo."
"While other orthodontists would have either extracted teeth or widened Kailynn's arch using a palatal expander, I needed neither. I used the Pitts 21 high-tech system of braces to change the size and shape of her arch and achieved a fantastic result."
"The key to making Tishayne's treatment plan successful was not extracting any teeth. I made his upper bone larger, corrected the size, made room for all of his teeth, and matched the upper jaw to the lower jaw. The result is remarkable!"
"It’s important to avoid extracting teeth on a growing person’s face. Lizabeth’s result is so outstanding because she now has a wide smile with a full display of her front teeth."
“I strive to create a smile that flows with a patient’s face. Koriana’s facial change is so impressive because I significantly widened her smile, gave her a full display of her upper teeth and created a beautiful smile arc.”
"I do not use expanders or screws, and rarely require the extraction of any teeth. Isaiah's wide smile speaks volumes about why he chose me for care."
