Hi! My name is Kelcey and I’ve been part of Dr. Herman’s team for over 16 years now. Let me tell you a little bit about the Dr. Herman I know… I’ve worked for orthodontists in the past and can tell you that there is no place like Dr. Herman’s office or Dr. Herman! The entire staff and I truly love coming to work every day! 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 for 4 years. He still loves the sport and coached young wrestlers at local schools for 40 years. 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 3 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 80s and decided to make it their home. Mary and Dr. Herman have been married for 46 years and have two grown and married sons with two 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 so many patients all over the Four Corners choose to make the drive to Dr. Herman’s office! 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.

Patients of the Week

November 2022

Imari

"Imari did great wearing her rubber bands and finished treatment with a wide, beautiful smile and a normal bite. The smile on her face makes her look gorgeous."

Dr. Herman

October 2022

Abel

"I always want to correct patients with an underbite like the one Abel had at an early age. The sooner I can start correcting an underbite, the better chance I have of keeping a patient from needing major surgery on the jaw at age 17-18 to correct the bite problems. I was very successful in treating Abel to a normal bite. "

Taryn

"Most orthodontists would have extracted four teeth on my patient Taryn. I treated Taryn without any extractions and gave her a wide beautiful smile. That's why we show close-ups of our patients' smiles; so you can see how amazing the transformation is!"
