Dr. Herman

dr herman

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.

Kayla's result speaks for itself. Magnificent smile and facial change. Once you see the results that I am achieving with the Pitts 21 system of braces it is difficult to unsee them."
