Why Us

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.

Taylor

"I feel the key to achieving Taylor's amazing transformation was treating her without removing any teeth. Her result speaks volumes as to the reasons why so many people from all over the Four Corners choose my staff and I for orthodontic care."

February 2020

Kameron

"Kameron and his entire family chose to drive four hours from the western side of the Navajo Reservation for treatment. Looking at his fantastic result, you can see why the drive every 6 weeks was well worth it."

Dr. Herman

February 2020

Hope

"Hope's problem is a difficult problem for most orthodontists to correct. The key to making her correction easy was not removing upper teeth to fix the crowding. I am really pleased with her wide smile and full incisor display."

Dr. Herman

February 2020

Whyley

"I changed the shape of his upper bone holding his upper teeth from a small size to a large size and corrected his mid face deficiency without surgery or extraction of teeth using the Hi-Tech Pitts 21 System of Braces.

Senon

"Senon and his mom wanted me to solve his problems without removing any adult teeth. Almost all other orthodontists would extract four teeth to solve Senon's problems and create a smaller smile."

Keaton

"Keaton is another one of my many patients that makes the 2-hour drive for treatment from Pagosa Springs, Colorado. I am impressed about how much his wider smile has enhanced his facial appearance."

Dr. Herman

July 2020

Alyssa

"I encourage my new patients to increase their expectations on what I can do to perfect their smile. I can do so much more with the Pitts 21 System of Braces than "just straighten teeth."

Dr. Herman

July 2020

Jahira

"Jahira is one of my many patients with an underbite due to a smaller upper jaw. I continue to be impressed on how easy the Pitts 21 System of Braces makes correcting this kind of skeletal problem."

Dr. Herman

July 2020

Kalissa

"The remarkable thing about her result is the width of her new smile and how much I increased the length of her front incisors. These key features made her beautiful smile significantly more noticeable and beautiful."
