Dr. Blacker and his staff are wonderful. I could not believe my “before” and “after” photos. I thought I only had a few crooked teeth, but after having Invisalign for a relatively short period of time I was so pleased with my smile! Leigh Ann is my favorite in the “back office” because you feel like your best friend is taking care of you! Dr. Blacker is an expert in knowing just how much to “tweak” this tooth or move that one just a touch to get them all to line up quickly. Blacker Orthodontics isn’t “just for kids!” I couldn’t be happier with my results and I highly recommend Dr. Blacker and his entire office team!

Our family has been coming here since we moved to Arizona 13 years ago. Our last child is in braces right now. We love the staff so much I think I’ll have to find some excuse to come and visit once she’s done with treatment. Dr. Blacker is calm and thorough, always taking the time to answer questions and explain what he’s doing. Leigh Anne is a treasure and remembers and asks about my kids regularly. You are treated like family here. I wouldn’t go anywhere else.

Excellent service and excellent people. Just finished my Invisalign treatment with Dr. Blacker & crew, couldn’t be happier with the results. COVID hit right in the middle of my treatment, the staff at Blacker Orthodontics made sure I didn’t miss a week and took all necessary action to make sure excellent service was continued. 5/5 for Blacker Orthodontics and my new smile.

We are new to the orthodontics world for our daughter. I decided to visit Dr. Blacker after hearing great reviews from friends. Dr. Blacker and his crew completely exceeded any expectations I had. Dr. Blacker took time to get to know my daughter, she even got to fill out an “All About Me” form when we got there. Everyone we met with were professional and knowledgeable. My daughter has severe anxiety when we go to the dentist for regular cleanings, so I was nervous about how this would go. I’m happy to say she had a smile on her face the whole time. Everyone was so helpful and explained everything they were doing while they put her braces in. She even got to watch it with a hand held mirror she was given. They have a great incentive/reward program and really did a great job! I would highly recommend Blacker Orthodontics!

Ever since I was a child I was self conscious about my teeth and smile. I started treatment with dr. Blackers office two years ago and just finished today. Although I have other cosmetics to be done I am SO HAPPY with my teeth and smile right now. The assistants have done an incredible job along the way and a special shout out to Leanne for being one of the main ortho assistants that I’ve had the pleasure to have work on my teeth. She is extremely knowledgeable and amazing at what she does. Thank you SO much Blacker orthodontics for making my biggest insecurity now something I love about myself!

Dr. Blacker and his entire team are dedicated professionals who go above and beyond in the care they provide for their patients. From the consult appointment to the removal our daughters braces we have received the highest standard of care. Blacker Orthodontics does an amazing job of educating and encouraging both patients and their families and incorporate fun incentive programs to keep patients motivated throughout the duration of care. Dr. Blacker and the staff are understanding and compassionate in the care they provide. They take the time to explain in detail the plan of care, review and discuss available financial options and continue to keep the patient and family informed on the progress. We highly recommend Blacker Orthodontics as a top choice for orthodontic care.

Karen M. from Chandler, AZ (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Blacker and his staff have been amazing to work with over the past few years. Initially when I met him, I brought my son in who was referred to possibly needing braces. After looking at my son he, Dr. Blacker, said no, he does not need braces. I knew then he was an honest man and has been that way all the way through services for my daughter. His office staff is amazing and so friendly and always helpful. I couldn’t be happier and feel luckier that we worked with such a great orthodontist and office. We are very grateful for Dr. Blacker and his office and give him the highest of referrals in this area.

My 13 year old daughter got her last set of braces off today and we couldn’t be happier with the results. Her teeth look great and her new smile is gorgeous. We’ve been with Blacker for the past 5 years and Dr. Blacker and his staff are super professional, straight forward with their information, and very friendly and accommodating.

Blacker Orthodontics has the best customer service! Dr. Blacker and all the orthodontist technicians and the office staff are responsive to all inquiries and concerns. One weekend we had a braces emergency and the on call doctor who was at Grady Gammage watching a play FaceTimed me at intermission to walk me through a repair that would get us through the weekend. THAT’S CUSTOMER SERVICE! I highly recommend Blacker Orthodontics for your best smile

Celeste M. from Gilbert, AZ (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Blacker is amazing. I had my braces taken off three years ago and my teeth shifted a little. I didn’t wear my retainer for about two years and came back to Dr. Blacker to fix them again. I came in thinking he was going to charge me again, and instead he said it was a minor fix and would be more than happy to take care of it at no charge! Honestly he’s such a humble, trustworthy and respectable guy. I would tell anyone and everyone about this office and how amazing he is. Thank you so much Dr. Blacker and his great team. I wouldn’t go anywhere else!!!

Look no further, Blacker Orthodontics is hands-down the best!  I have had three children in braces over the past five years, referred countless others and this orthodontic shop really is second to none.  In fact, there are very few businesses in general that I have ever visited that shine as much as Blacker.  There is a level of politeness and professionalism that you rarely see in today’s fast pace service industries.  Dr. Blacker is extremely patient, accurate and efficient.  He will customize an individual plan for each and every patient while not performing any adjustments just because it’s standard routine to do so.  For instance, my daughter had a double-layered tooth completely to the inside of her molars which also moved her mid-line front tooth of her smile.  Most professionals would (rightfully so) extract this tooth to expedite the process while saving costs, but Dr. Blacker took the time to explain the situation and comprised a plan of attack.  I thought for sure this tooth would need to be extracted; however, Dr. Blacker not only saved the tooth, but my daughters’ smile is now perfect.  It is amazing what they can do and if it’s happened, they have seen it.  The biggest factor for me is his calm bedside manner; quite simply, he knows how to listen and actually hears your concerns/questions.  And this does not end with just him, it permeates through his entire staff.  Every single member of the staff, from front desk to treatment to accounting to clinic etc… all have been there for years and they are by far the absolute best!  At each and every appointment, and it has been dozens upon dozens for us, the staff continually impresses.  It is obvious that they all enjoy being there, which makes them better at the work they do, so you benefit.  We were extremely happy with Dr. Blacker and his entire staff (yes, again the staff is amazing)!  The pride you all have in your work shows and we very much appreciate everything you do.

I’m on my 3rd daughter with braces with Blacker. We have had a great experience with each. The staff is probably the best part. From the first visit, the financial commitment was laid out clearly. We were able to use insurance for part and make easy payments for the rest. Our first daughter had a lot of work to be done and her braces did stay on much longer than expected. But our second daughter was in them for much shorter than expected and daughter #3 is doing fantastic. We have loved each of the techs and Dr. Blacker is awesome as well, checking progress and explaining everything at each visit. Looking forward to getting my own teeth fixed as well!

Rebecca T. from Arizona (Source: Yelp)


Our experience with Dr. Blacker and his staff was fabulous from start to finish. With a teenage boy, sometimes dental hygiene can be a little bit of a struggle, and despite a few broken brackets here and there, the office staff came to the rescue each and every time. Office visits were professional and friendly, and we knew our son was always getting the very best care. Braces came off today and our son looks like a new man! Thank you Dr. Blacker for taking such great care of us and for always going above and beyond, from the education on dental hygiene, to the greeting board with patients names and candy/popcorn reward on our way out the door today. We are so grateful for you all! XO

I got my braces on today and it’s honestly one of the most exciting days of my life. I have wanted to straighten my teeth for a long time, but financials and fear kept me from moving forward. I went terrified but everyone made me feel so comfortable that my anxiety diminished. They made the whole process so easy and explained how everything works. They also provided me with all the tools I need to take care of my braces. I can’t believe how smooth everything went and how efficient this office is. I’m honestly blown away by their kindness, their professionalism and the level of care I received. I was so afraid of people seeing my teeth and today I have already smiled more than I can remember. Thank you Dr Blacker, Odessa and Leeda for helping me with my smile. I know this will positively impact my life forever. Thank you again for your kindness! Dr Blacker ROCKS!

Today my daughter’s braces are finally coming off, looking at her beautiful and confident smile, I couldn’t be happier. Dr. Blacker is highly knowledgeable and experienced, he is always thorough while presenting options and discussing with parents. His staff is super friendly, highly skilled, and today thank you LeighAnn for your wonderful support, you all are amazing!!!

Shondiin B. from Tempe, AZ (Source: Yelp)


We love Blacker Orthodontics. My two children had their braces on for 2 years & now they have the best smile and are very happy. Now I’m definitely going to bring my youngest here for braces when he gets older. The office staff is wonderful and always polite. We enjoy going to their appointments & their COOKIES are delicious! Definitely recommend Blacker Orthodontics 🙂

I just want to say that Dr Blacker Orthodontics has been a wonderful experience. From the day my daughter got them on to the day they came off has been such an easy process. Dr Blacker and his whole team are absolutely fabulous!! They do such a great job making each person feel important. They also make it fun for the kids to come with all of their fun programs like Blacker Bucks, family pool parties, etc. I am so glad we made the choice to come here! �

Today’s marks the fourth family member to finish treatment with Blacker Orthodontics. We couldn’t be happier with each transformation. Blacker has an amazing staff! We love Leigh Ann who has always been so kind and informative about what was happening during each visit. Dr. Blacker has been the best!!

Today we chose Blacker Orthodontics to carry out my sons orthodontic needs. Having worked multiple years in the dental field, and knowing just how important PROPER orthodontic care can be for the duration of a persons life, I was not willing to settle. My sons case is not the easiest in the books. Knowing that his jaws and joints (not JUST the look of his teeth) will be taken into account and regularly monitored/adjusted accordingly is of great importance. I have seen many cases in which the teeth are made to be aesthetically pleasing, however the patients alignment and bite are not of uppermost importance- bringing complications and discomfort that require further treatment down the road. Each member of Blacker’s team we encountered was upbeat and friendly. They made my son and I feel more than comfortable and FULLY informed and aware. They provided us with videos that physically show and explain just what the Dr is recommending and a copy of the internal and external photos they use to determine treatment needs. They even wrote the new patients name on a special board as you walk in, which shows that the office really goes an extra step. Dr. Blacker is also a board certified orthodontist, which requires a great deal more of him to ensure excellent knowledge and skill. I would highly recommend this office to any of you out there searching for a practice you can trust and enjoy.

Dr Blacker and his staff are consummate professionals providing top notch care and quality customer service! My 2 daughters and I have all received treatment from Dr Blacker for orthodontia. Two of us need led Invisalign and one needed an expander and braces. We couldn’t be more pleased with our treatment and progress! We love our improved smiles!

I LOVE BLACKER ORTHODONTICS!! I had previously had braces on about 7yrs ago & their treatment was horrible. When I was referred to Dr. Blacker it was a completely different experience. I was terrified because Of my last experience at another orthodontists office so I was fearful of how this experience would go. However, my experience at Blacker Orthodontics has been AMAZING & Life changing!! From the first time I stepped into their office they eased my fears, explained the process for treatment & now I am over a year into my treatment plan & I have seen so many changes. LeighAnne is wonderful to work with!!! Everyone in the office is super friendly & they all know each patient by name. Dr. Blacker himself is AMAZING & such a blessing!! He takes time to listen to your concerns and explains everything at every appointment. I am EXTREMELY pleased with my results so far & I am so excited to see the end result! I am getting married next fall & thanks to the Blacker Orthodontics team I will be able to smile confidently. I highly recommend them to anyone who is seeking orthodontics treatment. You will not be disappointed!!

Awesome and highly recommended!! The staff @ Dr. Blacker’s office is friendly and accommodating. I love how the kids are responsible for checking themselves in for their appointments and the reward tokens they are given for taking care of their braces/teeth. Accountability. My daughter Morgan had her braces put on at the beginning of 2017, she was told they would be on for 18 months and she had them removed 11/27/18 (right @ 18 months). Her teeth are perfectly straight. She enjoyed being a patient at Dr. Blacker’s office so much that she said that she never wanted her braces to come off!! However, that changed after she saw how beautiful her teeth are. Last year around the holidays, my daughter ran out of bands for her mouth on a Saturday and the Chandler Office was closed and both Chandler and Tempe offices were going to be closed for the holidays after that day. One of the staff members from the Tempe office who happened to live in our general area met us at a local grocery store with more bands so that my daughter’s teeth would not be lacking what was needed to keep her on track. Just a wonderful experience all-around!

I had thought about getting braces for years, and finally at the age of 54, I did. My dentist recommended Dr. Blacker, and I knew he would recommend the best. I thought I might feel a little intimidated being older and getting braces at this age. The moment I walked in the office I was welcomed, felt comfortable, and so happy I made this choice. The staff is not only friendly and kind to patients, but also to each other which makes such a nice environment! They’re all highly qualified and confident in their work which makes me feel I had the very best care. Dr. Blacker is wonderful, and I felt extremely confident he made the best decisions for me. I also appreciated how he explained the details and processes each time I had an appointment. It was quite interesting how it all works and comes together. At the age of 66, I was just back in the office for a retainer, and Leigh Ann came right up with a hug and welcomed me back! The atmosphere, care, and results are top notch!!

I highly recommend Dr. Blacker and his team at Blacker Orthodontics. Dr. Blacker has a very calming demeanor and is highly knowledgeable and accredited in his field. He is always patient and listening closely to what the patient needs and what they desire in a final outcome. He knows how to make your smile look like a million bucks. The assistants in Dr. Blacker’s office are highly skilled and experienced and they too are very concerned with your comfort during an appointment. From the moment you walk into the office you feel taken care of and like your part of their team.

Kat R. from Phoenix, AZ (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Blacker is a wonderful caring orthodontist who takes the time to listen to his patients and is extremely thorough and professional with his procedures. I am extremely happy with the care I have received. From the moment I walked into the door where I was warmly greeted by the receptionist to the end of scheduling my appointments. The entire office staff is personable, friendly and attentive. This is an orthodontist office that goes out of the way to make the experience a friendly one for adults and children. Blacker orthodontics have their procedures down to a science. Their entire process from the moment you walk in until you leave is very seamless! I was very impressed with the entire office and would definitely recommend his practice to anyone that is seeking quality, friendly and attentive orthodontic care.

My experience with Blacker Orthodontist has been a lovely experience. I came in with braces already from where I moved, and they took care of me. Got me set up and even did some contouring for my first visit. I left with my teeth looking much better and the months continued with even more changes. My smile has visibly changed and looks much better than before. I can’t wait til the end because right I am happy with my smile. Everyone is the office is so friendly, a smile everywhere you look. I also get so much help setting up payment plans, it’s a great! I highly recommend this place!

Our initial visit left the best impression and each visit still impresses! On the first visit my son was so excited to see his name on the welcome board and to learn of all the prize incentives keep him motivated each month…and they work! The staff is always so friendly and always takes such good care of him. Dr Blacker and his staff come highly recommended and we will always refer our friends to this office!

Reina M. from Sun City, AZ (Source: Yelp)


Blacker Orthodontics has THE BEST customer service I have ever experienced at an orthodontist’s office! They immediately greeted me when I walked through that door.! Awesome! As soon as I got there, paperwork was ready for me to fill out. All that was done within 10 min and the coordinator was right there to take me for a tour of the practice. X-Rays and photos were done within 10 minutes, and then back to the exam room it was. Leeda was amazing and never left me in the room without letting me know what she was leaving to go do. They have thought of everything in that place! Dr. Blacker was great and explained the treatment options, treatment duration, and what’s to be expected of the treatment. Leeda took over after that and walked me through the financials. Everything was explained to me and all of my questions were answered. Amazing staff, people. If you’re second guessing going to Blacker Orthodontics, stop. They are great with children and adults alike. Besides, their office is fully equipped for the kid in everyone. They make you feel comfortable and reassured, and that’s what counts.

Blacker Orthodontics is absolutely the BEST!! My 10 year old son absolutely loves going in for his appointments. The entire staff is super friendly, fun, kind and helpful. Seriously, the nicest people ever! Our experience is always awesome. They have every detail covered from the waiting room, warm cookies, tablets for kids to play and a fun reward system each visit. When my son’s braces came off, they celebrated him and gave him treats! Payment plans were very easy. Highly recommend Blacker Orthodontics!

C. from Ocotillo Association, Chandler, AZ (Source: Yelp)


I am so grateful to have had Blacker Orthodontics as my ortho care team! Dr. Blacker, Carissa, and so many others at their Chandler office have always been professional, thorough, gentle, and compassionate. My smile is finally–after two decades of waiting to do braces and other dental work–one where I can do a toothy smile at a camera and feel proud. To everyone at Blacker Orthodontics, thank you for your patience and kindness. I will be referring friends and family to you every chance I get!

Dr. Blacker and his team are phenomenal. He is thorough and knowledgeable and made sure I was 100% happy with my results. The staff was very accommodating to my busy schedule (especially Leeann), as I am also in the dental field and have limited free time. They were always very friendly and welcoming. You can tell Dr. Blacker and his staff genuinely care about their patients. I would HIGHLY recommend Blacker Orthodontics!

Christine W. from Chandler, AZ (Source: Yelp)


Exciting day! My 12 year old got her braces off! We have been so happy with the care we have received here at Blacker Orthodontics over the past year and a half. Dr. Blacker has such a calming presence and is always kind, thorough and professional. The entire office staff is so friendly and inviting. You never feel rushed or ignored and they take time to explain what are they doing and how to take care of your braces and retainers. I highly recommend Blacker Orthodontics!
