Service. Experience. Affordability. Community.

These four pillars support our mission of bettering lives and brightening futures through beautiful, more attractive smiles.


We're legendary for our customer service and strive to exceed your expectations in every way possible. Our simple and painless process of getting braces or Invisalign is designed to keep you smiling from check in to check out, and every step in between.

Here at Thurman Orthodontics, you're truly treated like family. Dr. T’s “open doctor policy” means that he is available before, during or after all appointments to keep you fully informed about treatment progress or answer any questions you may have. Come in and see for yourself–we’re confident you'll not only see but feel the difference our patients rave about.


Tired of boring, sterile medical offices with rude staff and long wait times? We know our patients have busy lives and we work hard to run on time and are proud to say that our patients' average wait time is less than five minutes.

Have you gotten used to being treated like a chart number at doctors' offices by rude staff that doesn’t seem to care? Quite the opposite here. With us, you matter, and you’ll always be greeted with a warm smile. You'll find a fun and relaxed office atmosphere that's designed to help you enjoy your visits throughout your journey to your beautiful new smile.

This office reminds me of what customer service should feel like.


You should get a perfect smile that won't break your budget. We think everyone should be able to afford braces, so we’ve designed our payments with that in mind.

Our adjustable monthly payments make your perfect smile a reality and your first appointment is absolutely free.


Dr. T and his team live by Sir Winston Churchill’s view of life: “We make a living by what we get, we make a life by what we give.” We do everything we can to make Bakersfield and the world, a better place.

Whether we're serving meals to those in need or walking for a cause, you can see our team giving back to our wonderful community several days a month.
