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.

Patients of the Week
"Cari loves the fact that her teeth are straight and that her smile is wide. She now has more confidence when she smiles. Cari would have had teeth removed at other orthodontic offices. She achieved her result with no teeth being removed. Compare results and the choice for orthodontic care is easy."
"When you compare results and customer service of providers in the area, the choice for an orthodontist is easy. Call or message us today and see what Dr. Herman and The Pitts 21 System of Braces can do for you."
"She recommends my office for orthodontic care because she had a great, positive experience during her visits. While other offices focus on discounts or contests, our team consistently shows off our amazing results."
“Before Jillian's treatment, her smile was narrow with a large overbite and short incisor display. Her finished result is beautiful, with a wide smile, perfect bite, and full incisor display when she smiles. Jillian’s result is a prime example of how we make choosing an orthodontist easy. You deserve a great smile without compromising your results for a cheap price.”
“Zion is one of my many patients from Durango, Colorado. He is big on skiing, biking and playing the drums. I appreciate the fact that so many of my patients come from Southwestern Colorado (Cortez to Pagosa Springs). The difference in my results and more affordable fee is significant. Thanks for choosing me and my office.”
"Selena is in high school in Farmington where she excels in sports. While other orthodontists just straighten teeth I have mastered the use of the Pitts 21 System of Braces to change the size and shape of a patient's smile. The difference in results is obvious and remarkable. Choose an orthodontist based on results and the choice is easy."
"Jaceson is from Ouray, Colorado, and his result is amazing. He drove almost four hours each way to our office to get help with his overcrowding. Treating him without removing any teeth was a real challenge, but the FCOD team did it! Jaceson is a prime example of the outstanding results of what we can achieve with the Hi-Tech Pitts 21 System of Braces. Come see for yourself the amazing results we’re capable of."
"Madi lives in Monticello, Utah, three hours away from my office. She had a bite and crowding problem that is difficult to correct. Madi's pre-treatment smile was extremely small and her overbite was severe. You can see that her outcome was a huge success. When you compare close up pictures of my patients to that of others the choice is easy."
"Tommy is in high school in Monticello, Utah. He, his sister and his grandmother have made the 3 plus hour drive for treatment over the years. Tommy has grown really tall, and I am extremely glad that I was able to widen his smile to match his new height. A handsome young man with a great, outgoing personality from a great family. Congratulations!"
"Cordell drove 3 hours from Tuba City, Arizona and got a wide, handsome smile that will last a lifetime in return."
"We love that Lizbeth drove all the way from Pagosa Springs to get an amazing result from! Her transformation is beautiful.
