I really like coming here! All the staff are friendly and work hard to make sure their patients have the best possible experience. I would definitely tell my friends to come here. I think it’s really cool that you can earn points for showing up to an appointment on time, taking good care of your dental appliances, etc. towards a gift card! Thank you Baum & Pashley – you guys are the best!

Kim was wonderful. Everyone here is so warm and professional, and the care taken regarding COVID 19 is extraordinary. I did not come into contact with one single other patient. I have been coming to Dr. Baum for a long time and with every visit I have felt that he and all of his staff have the patient’s satisfaction and care as a top priority. The office runs efficiently and still you feel you can ask any questions that will be carefully considered and answered. Kudos to all. Don’t hesitate to choose Baum Orthodontics.

Both my kiddos needed braces. Their treatment included headgear, two phases for my daughter, and braces for both. Fast forward six years and they both have beautiful smiles. We LOVE Baum Orthodontics! The staff has always been compassionate, fun, kind, and organized, and the quality of the care top notch (Expertise + the latest technology + an inspiring environment is a trifecta of awesomeness). I feel blessed that we were referred to Dr. Baum and recommend Baum Orthodontics 100%

I have had an incredible experience with Dr. Baum and his entire staff for many years. Their immense care and attention to detail make them the premier ortho office in OC. A great experience for Parents and Children alike; with personable employees and a newly designed office space that only makes the process that much easier. Thank you Dr. Baum!

Renee V. from Irvine, CA (Source: Yelp)


My family (3 kids and husband!) have been patients of Dr. Baum for over a decade. I cannot say enough about the caring nature of every employee at this office. They treat every situation and concern with the upmost respect. Dr. Baum cares about the whole patient, way beyond the pretty smile they are guaranteed to receive. Recently, my son called me from college telling me his friends retainer partially fell off and had been poking her for a week. This friend was from Minnesota and could not go home to tend to this situation. She called numerous orthodontists here in Orange County and not one would see her because it wasn’t their orthodontic work and she didn’t intend to switch orthodontists. I called Joan, at Baum & Pashley Orthodontics and told her the situation. Not only did Dr. Baum agree to see her, he fit her in that day! They had never met this girl but couldn’t fathom the idea of not treating someone in need. I wish Dr. Baum continued success with his exceptional orthodontic practice.

What an amazing experience getting braces is turning out to be for my son! Everyone in the office is very friendly and knowledgeable. The reward system they implement is the perfect incentive for my son and helps to keep him on track. We have had prior experience (with a different child) using a different orthodontist …let’s just say the differences are night and day with Dr. Baum offering a such a positive spin on the “getting braces” experience. Thank you Dr. Baum…our family is happy to join the #Baumsquad

Sarika G. from Irvine, CA (Source: Yelp)


I highly recommend Baum and Pashley Orthodontics to any parents looking for their kid to get braces. My kids absolutely love the place and I do as well. The customer service is absolutely amazing and despite the pain that comes with braces, my kids look forward to meeting the friendly staff every appointment. The staff are simply the nicest and most understand people you will ever meet! I definitely recommend Baum and Pashley Orthodontics to anyone looking for a good place to get your braces!

I can’t say enough good things about Baum Ortho. My 3rd child is about to get her braces off and we have had nothing but fantastic experiences here for the last 6 years. The staff are all amazing. They remember my kids and I’m always amazed how they make it a personal experience and chat with them. Dr. Baum is a great orthodonistist, but he is also an amazing person. His manner with patients and parents is so kind and warm. They all put the patients at ease and make the process so positive. Love them!!

Tammy Stern-Thieriot (Source: Google)


I can’t say enough about Dr Baum and his entire staff. From the phone call to make an appointment, the detail and counsel in explaining the ortho plan, the chair side care, their commitment to fulfilling my smile goals and all the follow up in between ….they went above and beyond what I expected. My teenage son also had a fantastic outcome with his braces as well. Also worth a mention, we both enjoyed the upbeat and hip environment of the office. If you’re looking for a successful ortho experience, I HIGHLY RECOMMEND Baum Othodontics!

Natalie E. from San Francisco, CA (Source: Yelp)


After many years of orthodontia with Pashely and Baum, I finally have a perfect smile. I went from a little girl with an overbite and a gap between my two front teeth to a high schooler with a beautiful smile that I am complimented on frequently. All the rubber bands and retainers and headgear and braces and more were totally worth it. I’m officially a graduated patient and I can’t thank these amazing orthodontists enough!

Ally J. from Tustin, CA (Source: Yelp)


This is the best orthodontist ever! Dr. Baum and all of the employees are so kind and welcoming every time you go there! They keep working until they make your smile the best it can be. I just finished my braces treatment and my teeth are so straight! I am very happy with my new smile! I also noticed that they help you not to feel nervous with anything that happens. I recommend this office. You will be pleased after you finish your treatment!

Dr. Baum and Dr. Kelly have the most wonderful office with professional staff and fantastic practitioners. My whole family has benefited from their expertise, knowledge and professional attitude. We all have straight teeth and beautiful dentition thanks to them!!! We can recommend Baum Orthidontics with confidence. You are going to have a fabulous experience!

D. S. from Irvine, CA (Source: Yelp)


This office is amazing. The first time we walked in, they were so welcoming to my daughter who was very nervous for her new braces. They explained everything step-by-step Including cost and payment options. Since then have been there numerous times and every time I am more impressed with the office staff as well as Dr. Baum. The place is simply incredible. They cater to kids amazingly. On our last visit my daughter had a hard time. They could not of been more caring and sweet to her. They even sent a note home a few days later making sure that she was feeling better and wishing her a great Halloween. I cannot say enough great things about this office and would highly highly recommend them to anyone who’s looking for an orthodontic office in the area.

We have been coming here for over three years down. With two kids having gone through phase one we would highly recommend this place. The office staff is so accommodating and has rarely changed over our visits which allows you to get to know them. The new office is very kid centered with TV’s in the treatment areas. My son actually asks if we can go early to their appointments so he can play the video games in the waiting room before going back. Dr. Baum listens to his patients and really works the families to make this a great experience. He is also very involved in the community and I have hosted a field trip here for my Girls Scouts. It’s a fun, positive and welcoming environment here and we can’t recommend it enough. You will not be disappointed!!

Lisa N. from Corona, CA (Source: Yelp)


I waited until the end of my daughter’s treatment to write a review. Dr. Baum and his staff are an amazing group of people who treat everyone like family! Everyone is so happy and it’s genuine! You can tell it’s a great place to work and everyone appreciates each other. Dr. Baum is very personable and shares his life and asks about his patients as well. You are not just another number. My daughter’s treatment was pretty straightforward with no major issues. My questions were answered when I had them and she’s ready to get her braces off in a month. The waiting room was very welcoming and cozy when we were able to wait there pre COVID-19 and I’m sure it will be again in the future. The appointment process was easy and flexible when I had to change them at the last minute. My second daughter will be getting her braces on next year so our family will be happily with Dr. Baum for another 2 years!

We love Dr. Baum and his staff and the super modern office! We got two consultations and my daughter did not have a great feeling about the other place. Immediately, she was impressed with Dr. Baum and his staff. She liked that they didn’t treat her like a little girl (she’s a petite teen). The “other” place talked to her like she was a 6 year old. I love the free coffee  I’ll be getting my Invisalign soon, as soon as my kids are done.

Dr. Baum’s Orange County Orthodontist’s office is the bomb…literally. I used to go to another orthodontist office and the people there were nice, but Dr. Baum’s Office is much more. The office is very fun and engaging for kids and teens like me! I feel that employees really explain why, how, and what, they do for me. Also the office is consistently amazing. Whenever I have an appointment, I immediately jump up, put my Baum Squad shirt on and get ready to earn new points! Dr.Baum never ceases to amaze me, so keep doing what you guys are doing.

It has been years ago that my oldest son needed braces. My wife and I did a thorough research on all the available Orthodontists and decided to go with Dr. Baum. When we met Dr. Baum, we instantly formed a bond with him as we find he is very friendly, genuine, knowledgeable and very clear in presenting to us what our son needs and treatment plan. As medical professionals ourselves, we appreciate the time that Dr. Baum took to explain everything to us. The staff there has always been very wonderful and helpful in every way. In time, it was my turn to be the patient and Dr. Baum and staff treated me as anyone else. They always greeted me with my first name as if I was part of their family. In my experience, all the staff are simply wonderful but I want to especially mention of Kim. She is very gentle, knowledgeable and experienced with her work. She always make me feel at ease as she work on my braces. Dr. Baum is great but Kim (and his staff) make Baum Orthodontics awesome.

Devon M. from Tustin, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Baum and his staff have been amazingly friendly and accommodating. My daughter is only 8 and needs phase 1 expander and braces and she absolutely loves going and the whole process because of how special and exciting they make it each time. Not to mention the facility is beautiful! You can’t go wrong by choosing this practice for your child.

Patricia Baggett (Source: Google)


Baum Orthodontics makes sense! Years ago, I had gotten three conflicting opinions in the past about treatment plans for braces; being conflicted, I did nothing. Fast forward several years, I went to see Dr. Baum (at the high recommendation of my current dentist) and I got a treatment plan that makes sense…and at a fair price! I’m thankful I found the best orthodontist in Orange County. I’m excited for the improvement in my teeth that I’ll see!

Gina V. from Tustin, CA (Source: Yelp)


I was referred to Dr. Baum by several of my neighbors who all rave about him and his staff. I had previously taken my daughter to 2 other orthodontic offices for consultations and to get a feel for the doctor and staff previous to going to Dr. Baum. Needless to say, we decided to proceed with orthodontic treatment with Dr. Baum. He is friendly, sincere and took a lot of time explaining all of the details to us. His office staff is always very friendly when I call and when we go to the office and always very helpful. This is important to me since we will be having many future visits to his office. Since I am new to all of this orthodontia stuff, I truly appreciate the time and patience Dr. Baum and his staff has taken to answer my questions and explain things to me several times. I also appreciate the efficiency of the office. We have never had to wait more than 5 minutes for each of our appointments so far. We look forward to a smooth orthodontic journey for my daughter with Dr. Baum and his staff.

Lindsay O. from San Diego, CA (Source: Yelp)


If I could give this review 6 stars I would. I have had braces before as a child, so this is my second time through this process, and while being an adult with full upper and lower braces is no fun, Dr. Baum and his staff made it by far the best experience possible. I am a perfectionist in every sense of the word, and was thrilled that Dr. Baum and I had the same goals and understanding throughout the entire process. The office staff was always friendly, professional, efficient, and made a true effort to schedule at the most convenient times for me, which was extremely helpful. Dr. Baum himself is not only a fantastic orthodontist, but also a wonderful person, and works harder than anyone else I know. If I had to go through this process again, I would pick Dr. Baum again in a heartbeat, and I encourage anyone looking for an orthodontist to do the same if you value a friendly, efficient office with an experienced orthodontist that will go the extra mile to make your smile perfect :).

Dr. Baum has been my orthodontist for over 10 years now, and I was probably one of the most complicated cases he has had. Since day 1 he was always sympathetic, kind, thoughtful, and never took any short cuts in my treatments. Not only that, but every specialist he has referred me to has been equally kind, honest and world class – which speaks volumes about the crowd he surrounds himself with. One double jaw surgery and 10+ years of excellent care, my life has absolutely changed for the better all because of Dr Baum and his amazing staff. Not to mention, Kim who gave me outstanding service and was always such a treat to talk to during my visits. She is the best, and I would not have trusted many others to help me with my treatments! I cannot thank you guys enough for the wonderful care!

I love Dr Baum and his staff. They are caring and accommodating. I work full time and they have worked around my schedule. Dr Baum even met me on his day off when I was in pain and took care of me with care and concern. I had been to several other orthodontist for consultations prior to Dr Baum and Dr Baum was the only one who told me invisilign would work for me with confidence. I got amazing results. Dr Baum is very experienced and now my son is getting his braces for phase 1. We love their Tustin office. I would highly recommend Dr Baum.

Sandy A. from Santa Ana, CA(Source: Yelp)


We have been going to Dr Baum for about 5 years now and with all 4 kids and we’ve have a great experience.  We love the office staff and Dr Baum has a great personality that connects with the kids and parents and makes everyone feel comfortable. Dr Baum is great about pacing each treatment for each child and not just putting all of my kids in braces. We can not recommend enough that you try out Dr Baum when thinking about ortho treatments.

Dr. Baum and his staff are a professional team of really great people. It is a busy practice that is run very efficiently. We are always greeted by a cheerful staff member. Most often only in the waiting room for a couple of minutes. Dr. Baum is very knowledgeable, and so friendly. My daughter commented on how easy he is to talk to. We appreciate Dr. Baum and his staff!

Maxime F. from San Francisco, CA (Source: Yelp)


I was 8 years old when i got my braces and it was scary! But when I walked into Baum Orthodontics, formerly known as Pashley and Baum Orthodondics, I was welcomed by the heart warming staff and the ever so kind Dr. Baum. I am now on the modern braces known as invisaline and can’t wait to go back to Baum Orthodontics! Thank you so much to everyone who works there!

My age is a factor in this review – I started my first set of invisiline with Dr Baum & his staff at age 59. I’ve been asked, “Why at your age?” It isn’t just about how I look- in fact it is MORE about my health. For years my jaws have ached from clenching and grinding my teeth at night. I’ve even chewed through a ‘night guard’ provided by a dentist. Individual teeth hurt in the regular activity of life and my gums were sensitive to everything. What Dr Baum has done for me is a miracle: 1. I can touch my jaw without wincing in pain 2. I no longer grind my teeth at night 3. My individual teeth have stopped chronically hurting 4. I can actually get floss between my teeth 5. And yes, my smile is so much prettier. Good health is important at any age – taking good care of your teeth helps reduce a lot of pain and extend life expectancy. Dr Baum is the BEST with his expertise, experience, compassion, and commitment to using the very latest and successful treatments in orthodontia. One other recommendation- I’m the second in our family to use Dr. Baum’s services … 1st was my daughter when she was in elementary school and needed braces. I wouldn’t go anywhere else!

Great people! The staff members are very nice, and make for great conversation, (especially “Windy”). Everyone is very positive, and there’s a game corner with Switch and arcade games. After you finish your treatment, you get to sign your name on the wall with all the other “graduates”. You also get rewarded with a point system for following good dental hygiene, and you can redeem your points for gift cards. (Also the point cards have puns on them). It’s a great incentive program for younger kids, especially. Overall, a great orthodontic experience.

Erin G. from Tustin, CA (Source: Yelp)


We love the Baum Squad!  They make you feel right at home.  We had our first experience when our older son was in need of starting with braces and have continued the process with our younger son. We trust their opinion, know they will do what’s right for our kids and continue to recommend our friends and family members to Baum & Pashley team.  Thank you for always being available when needed, having our best interest at heart and supporting our community

Great staff, always friendly and accommodating! I have not waited more than 10 minutes to be called in the office. I work full time and a few times I only had a limited amount of time and they worked around my schedule. Dr. Baum is awesome. I went to several ortho office and was told that I would need braces and invisilign would not be an option. Dr. Baum was one of the only doctor who said the invisilign would work for me with confidence.  Dr. Baum is very experienced and I got amazing results with invisilign. He listens to you and came in on his day off to check on me when I was really concerned. Now my son is also getting braces from them. They moved to a new location which is state of the art and beautiful. Thank you Dr. Baum and staff for giving me a beautiful smile!

Love this place so so much! There’s two locations for Baum orthodontics, one in Tustin and one in Irvine. Tustin location is the place I mostly go to because I like it here better than the Irvine one (cause of how new it looks and the layout and whatnot). I felt at eased from when they first did my teeth impression to my current braces appointment now. Kim is the person who does my braces and she is a perfectionist with everything. I’ve had friends who’s also had their braces done at other places and it definitely wasn’t as good as Kim’s, I must say. I absolutely love how perfectly aligned my brackets are, (believe it or not I’ve seen other places that’s done not a so great job LOL) my appointments are always fast and painless most of the time. The guy who took my impression was very outgoing and he made me feel very comfortable during my x-ray (forgot his name but he has braces)! One of the things I find good about this place is that they try to give you appointments that are not too far out from each other. This way, the braces process won’t take yearrrs and will go by a lot faster, I believe mine will be 2 years straight, including jaw surgery in between the process. Man, I’ve heard so many stories about how the orthodontist will tell you your braces will be off at a certain time period but will actually end up being a few years after that so I’m glad it won’t happen to me. Overall The environment here is so relaxing and welcoming and everyone is very nice from the staff to dr.Baum to the new orthodontist who often come to help Kim and check up on me. I also forgot her name but will try to get it the next time. I can’t wait to have my braces off in the future and see the results as I’m sure my teeth will look amazing! Would 100% recommend this place to everyone!

Love, love, love everything about this place! Our family is in our 6th year of orthodontia with 3 kids. I will miss them all when my last one gets hers off next month! Every single experience has been amazing! Every person in the office is kind and wonderful. They are all experts at what they do and so helpful. Dr. Baum is a wonderful person on top of being a great orthodontist. Highly recommend!
