Check out what some of our happy patients are saying about us:

Mark W. from San Francisco, CA (Source: Yelp)


There is little that I can say that already hasn’t been said. My son suffered a gruesome injury that required immediate attention on a Saturday morning. Without missing a beat, Dr. Thomas met us at his office and worked wonders to help my son. To say he went above and beyond would be a complete understatement. On top of that he sent follow up messages checking on my son and providing further guidance and support until we could meet with him again 24 hours later. Dr. Thomas is skilled, humble, friendly, and a fantastic human. I will forever recommend him to friends and family. My family will see no one else from this point forward. Note: I live in Southern NJ and cannot edit my location as yelp has me located in San Fran.

Dr. Thomas and his staff are incredible, caring and accommodating. I’ve been going to Dr. Thomas for ~3 years for my Invisalign treatment and at the end of it, I couldn’t be happier with the results. It was big decision for me to go through with this as an adult and Dr. Thomas and his staff treated me with utmost respect and professionalism, answered all my questions and made me feel at ease. I would highly recommend Dr. Thomas for all your orthodontic needs!!

Alisa K. from Philadelphia, PA (Source: Yelp)


Awesome office. Dr. Thomas recommended the best treatment for my particular issue. Mind you, I’ve had braces twice and Invisaligns once, so needless to say I was thrilled when he said that he will fix my gap once and for all and I’ll never need braces again!!! He uses state of the art technology to view the positions of teeth and the jaw bone. No one has ever done that for me. He knew exactly why my gap comes back after only a few months of not wearing a retainer and he told me what he will do to remove the gap for good. I highly recommend this office – the cleanliness, the energy, the service – it’s a win win for all!

Dr. Thomas, and the center city orthodontics family, are awesome! They have been an extreme blessing, to my daughter, and family, at large. The team is more than knowledgeable, caring, flexible, and very welcoming. I can’t say enough good things! I highly reccommend this facility, to the highest of standards. The office is filled with a pleasant atmosphere, of positivity, and kindness! Dr. Thomas & his staff, will go above, and beyond to assist you. This kind of humility and dedication, is very rare today! I truly thank God every day, for blessing us, with their care. They have helped in making my daughters dream, of great orthodontic treatment, a reality! Please give them a vist……you will not be sorry! Thank you Center City Orthodontic family!! 🙂 Warmly, T. & L.

From the time I can remember I have always struggled with self esteem issues due to my crowded smile. As the years past I continued to hide my mouth every time someone would make me laugh or stare too long in that direction. I finally decided to do something about my teeth after hearing rave reviews about Center City Orthodontist. From the first day I stepped into Dr. Thomas’s office I was treated like family. I wore my Invisalign for 18 months and each appointment that passed I was always greeted warmly by his staff upon my arrival and departure. Now that I am finish I can’t even begin to explain how much more confident I feel while speaking to people and laughing. This whole experience has changed my life and I would 100% recommend it to anyone who is considering receiving braces or Invisalign. Thank you so much for always making me feel like a priority! Now if we could only get through this pandemic so I can takeoff my mask and show off this smile!

Prediction: One fortuitous visit to the gleaming and ultra-modern offices of Center City Orthodontics likely will prove sufficient for you to say, “Dr. Thomas, where have you been all my life?!” That certainly was my very happy experience. I felt like I struck gold. Because I did. From the gracious initial consultation through the stellar course of treatment, nothing less than my absolute satisfaction with his orthodontic processes has been Dr. Thomas’s invariable goal, alpha and omega. His exquisite professionalism, knowledge, care, concern, and thorough follow-up procedures are nonpareil. Dr. Thomas is a superb listener (he could run seminars) and his compassionate “chair-side” manner, remarkable. I have several orthodontic experiences in my history and believe me when I say Dr. Thomas and his patient coordinator, the ‘totes amaze’ Heather, are whassup. I do not grade on a curve. Never, not ever. Center City Orthodontics has my highest recommendation. And then some.

Raksha S. from Philadelphia, PA (Source: Yelp)


I don’t usually write reviews but I am making an exception for Dr. Thomas. It is the best treatment and service I have ever received! I decided to get orthodontic treatment as an adult and I have to say, I was quite a demanding patient, but Dr. Thomas was really accommodating each and every single time, weather it was to change appointment times or to answer even the silliest of my questions. I could not be happier with my smile now and getting orthodontic treatment from Dr. Thomas is the best decision I ever made! I continue to get several compliments on my smile and have Dr. Thomas to thank for it all. I recommend Center city orthodontics 100% to anyone who needs braces.

Center City Orthodontics has been wonderful over the past few years. Dr. Thomas and his team are Great! Friendly, good communication, attentive and gentle with their care! My daughter is so happy marking today as the day her braces came off! And her teeth look great! I highly recommend Center City Orthodontics!

Renee Ross (Source: Google)


Dr. Thomas and his team are wonderful. They put their patients first and have exceptional customer service, especially during this unprecedented time. I always felt comfortable coming to the office and knew they were always going to go above and beyond to ensure my health and safety. I am so pleased with the results! I can’t stop smiling 😉 I recommend Center City Orthodontics times ten!!!

Angela K. from Spring Garden, Philadelphia, PA (Source: Yelp)


I cannot recommend this office enough to friends and family (and now the entire Yelp community)! 🙂 I came here for my Invisalign and I cannot be happier with my results. I’m so happy with how great my smile looks and the entire experience was flawless. The office space itself is always clean and beautifully maintained; the office staff and Dr. Thomas are the nicest and most genuine people ever; the technology and equipment are top notch! I felt safe coming to my final appointments even during COVID as every safety measure has been taken. Do not hesitate to come here for all of your orthodontics needs!!

Corey D. from Philadelphia, PA (Source: Yelp)


These guys are the best. The entire staff, from the front desk to Dr. Thomas are extremely knowledgeable, out-going, pleasant, and genuine people that care about the person in the chair more than getting through a seemingly overwhelming amount of clients. I’ve been typically greeted at the front desk by Christine, who approached me at Trader Joe’s for a causal conversation… (honestly I couldn’t place the face when she started talking, but that makes her encounter that much more incredible). Best in the city!

Dr Thomas is awesome , he and his team is very professional , polite and caring. Every time, I asked questions , Dr Thomas explained to me very detailed and very nicely. Now my teeth are all straight, I can smile with confidence .Thank you so much Dr Thomas and your team!!!Highly recommend to all.

Mia W. from PA, PA (Source: Yelp)


Center City Orthodontics is simply the best. Of all of my healthcare providers, this is the only one that I actually look forward to going to. Dr. Thomas is kind, professional and gives you various options for treatment. He does not pressure you to spend money or choose a certain path, but provides suggestions and allows you to choose what treatment plan is best for you. His staff is incredibly friendly and the front desk always greets you with a huge smile. They clearly love working with Dr. Thomas and their work. Even though I don’t live incredibly close to CCD, I always go back to Dr.Thomas and his practice because it is the best experience out there. 5 STARS!

Kayla H. from Camden County, NJ (Source: Yelp)


In the first few months of Invisalign treatment I’ve had here, I have nothing to complain about. Center City Orthodontics is a well oiled machine with a friendly staff that wants to give you the best possible smile AND experience. As a 25 year old interested in straightening out my smile, I was initially hesitant about going back to the orthodontist after what a traumatizing few years with wire braces from Penn, but I love it here. The Yelp reviews lead me to this office! It’s a fun touch how they give you a hot hand towel after every appointment.

Kristen B. from Philadelphia, PA (Source: Yelp)


Two years ago I started the search for an orthodontist in the area to treat me. I had braces out of state as a child but my teeth moved and maybe weren’t done right the first time. I met with three different offices, two of which immediately suggested double jaw surgery without taking any X-rays. Both of these places made me feel like I would be just another patient, and didn’t hear my concerns. I wasn’t ready for surgery and wanted to find a doctor who would listen to me and understand my goal of a straight AND functional smile. Dr. Thomas took the time in my consultation to hear every concern and answer every question. We agreed on braces and remained open on the conversation of surgery if warranted. That special level of care never changed: every person I met in my 22 months of treatment provided incredible customer service. Anytime a wire was out of place they made time for me and each appointment I left understanding where I was along my treatment path. This is also one of the only offices I found in my search where the doctor is on site and doing/reviewing any work on your teeth. I now have an amazing smile which has already changed my outlook on life and made me feel more confident in my career. If you are considering orthodontists in the area, I can’t say enough about Dr. Thomas and his team!

Christine R. from Philadelphia, PA (Source: Yelp)


Growing up, my parents couldn’t afford braces. So, I went through life with a smile that I hated. As an adult, wearing braces can be embarrassing. But you just have to embrace it! It is what it is! You can get through it….. because at the end, it is sooo worth it!! The initial process was a long one and began by going to different orthodontists in the South Philly/Center City area to get their opinions and compare their services. I felt that many Orthodontist’s just told me what they thought I WANTED TO HEAR (as in ‘Yes, you are a great candidate for the Invisalign)….even though I knew I wasn’t. Many had limited office hours. Others just wanted me to spend unnecessary amounts of money for ‘new treatments’. I began to give up… but then I noticed Center City Orthodontics as I was walking home one day. It is in a very convenient location– On South St…only a half block to S Broad St. Many SEPTA buses and the subways stops there. I made an appointment for a consultation. It was easy to schedule since they offer day, night and Saturday hours. I met Dr. Thomas and his crew of awesome employee’s and felt an immediate connection. Dr. Thomas is a young guy with a TON of experience. A PENN graduate and solid in the community. He not only still teaches at the Dental School but does International Missions with his father with Operation Smile. During the first year of my treatment, I was preparing for my wedding. And I had some pretty messed up teeth to fix. But Dr. Thomas assured me that my teeth would look great for the wedding. He was right! I went into the office every 4 weeks….but as promised….they looked A-MAZ-ING. I still had some work to do, but he removed and replaced my braces for the wedding and honeymoon ( 3 weeks). The dental hygienists who work with him are wonderful. Christine at the front desk always welcomes you with a big smile. I feel like a celebrity every time I arrive. The entire staff knows my name, asks me questions pertinent to my life and are always interested. Despite our 10 yr age difference, they are the type of professional people I’d be friends with in my normal life. I’m just happy I get to see them every 4-6 weeks. All in all, if your having any qualms about getting braces., my advice to you….DO IT! And once you have them on, you will see so many other people who also have braces. I have bonded with other adults over our braces. Children and I chat about our different colored power chains. And most importantly, I can see a real difference in my smile. Quite easily the best decision I have made in a while.

Honestly, if I could give more than 5 stars I would.  I have never in my life come across such a professional, kind, and upbeat staff.  Everyone in this office is a joy to work with, you will not go wrong when you work with Dr. Thomas and his team of stars.  My fiancé began his adventure with their team long before I did due to some major dental work that he had to have done.  I had accompanied him to more than one appointment during his treatment and was always thrilled at how kind everyone was and how clean and welcoming their office is.  Let me say, thanks to Dr. Thomas my fiancée has a stellar smile that he cannot help but show off.  I was initially hesitant to get my own orthodontic work done, I had Invisalign in the past through a dentist and did not get the desired results the first time around.  After talking with the team, they assured me that I would have my perfect smile in time for my wedding.  After completing almost a year of Invisalign treatments I can say that now I too have a stellar smile to match my future husbands.  I am sure we will both be nothing but smiles on our wedding day and all the happy days ahead of us.  Again, I cannot thank Dr. Thomas and the rest of the team enough for making my smile bigger and prouder than it has ever been.

The best place to go for a better smile! The best place to go in Philadelphia, it’s very welcoming as soon as you walk in. At every corner there is staff with a cheerful personality ready to greet you. The best time I had at a dentist/orthodontist appointment and treatment. Not only is the location fantastic all the equipment they work with is state of the art! This makes it a less painful and more pleasing visit at the dentist office. Of course the most important part is Dr. Tejjy is extremely professional he will explain the process of your new smile venture and ensure your satisfaction throughout your journey with him. Highly recommended 5 stars all around from staff, location, equipment and service! The best dentist in the city!!

Tala A. from Philadelphia, PA (Source: Yelp)


Initially, I shopped around for different orthodontists and went to a few consultations, but I quickly learned Dr. Thomas is the best, and I’m glad I chose him. His staff is so friendly and sweet. I was dreading Invisalign, but I’ve gotten so used to it, no one even notices! When I’m done with my treatment, I don’t know how I’m going to say goodbye because I have become so attached to Dr. Thomas and his staff.

Amy S. from Philadelphia, PA (Source: Yelp)


I could not say enough great things about center city orthodontics!!! Dr Thomas and his entire staff are absolutely wonderful and both of my daughters have had excellent results. One daughter did Invisalign and the other did braces and we could not be happier with the service we received. We never had to wait, we never had a single problem scheduling appointments. Most importantly both of my girls now have beautiful straight teeth and are very happy!!!

Lucinda L. from Media, PA (Source: Yelp)


Dr Thomas and his team are warm, thoughtful, exceedingly professional and caring.  Dr Thomas completed my SECOND round of metal braces and I am sure that if I had Dr Thomas when I was a teenager, I wouldn’t have had to re-do my orthodontic treatment 20 years later!  He was very careful with my associated adult dental issues (fillings, bruxism, gum loss) and tailored my orthodontic treatments accordingly.  It is worth any extra effort to be his patient; he will take care of YOU and adjust your care based on your overall needs, not just your dental alignment needs.

Everything here deserves 5 stars. The staff are here to make you feel warm and comfortable. Dr. Thomas is the pro. I trust him from the deep bottom of my heart. He is always so kind and nice. Definitely know what he is doing. I would highly recommend this place to anyone who wants the prefect smile. I don’t even live in philly, but still like to travel back to Philly for the experiences and services. Because they worth!!!

Been going here 3 years and they are amazing Super professional and convenient they are super clean and it’s nice there Go here You won’t regret it!!!! Update!! 2020 Dr.Telly is amazing! He runs his practice so well He’s so friendly and professional Remembers you by name which is insane to me because he sees so many people, If you ever have an issue he’ll let you come in immediately and help, They are more expensive then other places but You definitely get what you pay for here! They are flexible with appointments, they have amazing treatment plans and they are dedicated to what they do! I had an amazing journey here and I am grateful I also recommend about 5 people to go here!

John M. from Philadelphia, PA (Source: Yelp)


Refreshing and innovative, an inviting atmosphere marked by a nifty design and manned by a cheerful and professional staff. If Ashley, the treatment coordinator makes a persuasive pitch for what is inarguably one of the best orthodontic practices in Philadelphia, Dr. Tejjy Thomas brings his formidable expertise and experience to bear in providing extraordinary service to a delighted clientele. Simply put, Center City Orthodontics is spiffing!

Leah R. from Philadelphia, PA (Source: Yelp)


This excellent review has been a long time coming. From the beginning of my orthodontic treatment to the very end Dr. Thomas has immensely changed my life, starting with my new and much improved smile. Dr. Thomas is passionate and thorough about his work. Anyone who has had orthodontic treatment knows that the doctor patient relationship is extremely important. Going to the orthodontist every couple of months can become mundane; but Dr. Thomas treats his patients individually, always remembering something special about all of his patients. There is nothing worse than going to the doctors office and felling like just a number; not with Dr. Thomas. Both he and his staff made me feel like I was going to see old friends every time I went in for an appointment. Not to mention the office has a calm and tranquil feel, easy access and parking is never a problem. Overall I loved my experience with Dr. Thomas and would recommend his services to anyone in need orthodontic care. Thank you so much Dr. Thomas!

Cathie K. from Philadelphia, PA (Source: Yelp)


Wow…what a beautiful practice! I went there on a friends recommendation…they are all so friendly and I was seen on time (that never happens at my previous office) anyway, I went for an Invisalign consult and Dr. Thomas actually made me realize that I was not the best candidate for that treatment even though my other 2 consultations were ready to take my down payment and get started!! They explained my options to me and I am actually now getting clear braces for a few months…I am excited and can’t wait to start… the nicest orthodontic practice I have been too…and they have Saturday hours as well…heading back with my nephew…HIghly Recommend!

Komal K. from Philadelphia, PA (Source: Yelp)


I came to Center City Orthodontics in December last year to try to find a solution for my horrible adult orthodontic problem. Dr Thomas helped me with great recommendations and we got started with adult braces in the same month. I was initially dreading braces but I started seeing improvements almost immediately. Dr Thomas is an artist and magician rolled into one person! My smile is better than it ever was since my baby teeth fell and my treatment is not even over yet. I can’t wait to see what it will look like in a few months from now. The entire staff is great and they make you feel very comfortable. Having had this treatment during covid, I want to also applaud the precautions they’re taking to keep their staff and patients safe. I would whole heartedly recommend Dr Thomas and his entire team. Your smile is one of the best investments you can make for yourself!!

Dr. Thomas and his staff are amazing! From the start to finish, it was a exceptional experience. Their accommodating, nice (which this world is lacking of) and patient. Look nowhere else for your Ortho needs, it won’t be as impeccable as Center City Ortho. Thanks again to Dr.Thomas and his Staff for my smile. You guys are heroes

I transferred to Dr Thomas’s office after moved to Philadelphia. And I couldn’t be more happier. Dr Thomas is professional, he knows what he is doing. And he really care about his patients. Everyone in the office is super welcome and helpful. I never had any negative experience during my almost 3 years journey. Highly recommend to anyone who need orthodontist.

Magnolia M. from Philadelphia, PA (Source: Yelp)


Dr Thomas and his team are THE BEST and that’s a fact! The team at Center City Orthodontics is so good that you’ll look forward to visits here. I owe it all to Dr Thomas and his team! The office space is sparkling clean with modern/advanced technology. At each visit you will be greeted by name with a warm, friendly smile (thanks Christine at the front desk). At the initial consultation, the team will listen to your goals and discuss various treatment options to fit your needs and finances. Once visiting regularly you will meet the dental hygienists working here- all of whom are friendly and experienced. When you visit with Dr Thomas you will undoubtedly find that he is very skilled but also humble and fun to chat with. Dr Thomas has worked with me along the way to address any concerns and has gone above and beyond (providing extra items/services at no additional cost, etc) to ensure that every issue is addressed fully. Now that I am finishing up treatment, I can see great results. Deciding to go with adult braces was not an easy decision but coming to Dr Thomas was easily the best decision I could have made. You are treated as family here and I will always consider them that for all that they have done for me. Center City Orthodontics is the Philadelphia orthodontics GOLD STANDARD and I could only hope to experience care this exceptional at any medical facility. 100000000x recommended!

03/07/17 This is an update of my review for my orthodontics treatment with this office, Center City Orthodontics. After a year and a half of treatment time, Dr. Thomas and his staffs still wowed me of how professional and sweet they are. Never did I have to wait more than five minutes for all my appointments. My case was a little harder than we anticipated; when I voiced my concerns to Dr. Thomas, his expertise and professionalism always exceed my expectations. I enjoyed coming to my appointments very much. The clinic is modern and beautiful. The music was just right, it didn’t give you that “I’m going to be in pain” ambience. =) Special thanks and shout out to, of course, Dr. Thomas, Jess (for most of my appointments) and Sam, and pleasant front desk experiences with Christine!

Christine J. from Philadelphia, PA (Source: Yelp)


Where was Dr. Thomas when I needed braces! This place is amazing. My daughter just got her braces a month ago. EVERY person who works at Center City Orthodontics is friendly and accommodating. They take customer service to a new level. They are patient and explain everything to both the patient and the parent. (Note: many of their patients are adults too.) This is a very professional practice and the patient’s comfort and convenience always comes first. I have an interesting perspective because my son is about to get his braces off from another center city practice (look for my yelp review when the braces are off) and it has not been a positive experience. I cannot recommend Center City Orthodontics enough! They truly are as good as it gets.

Shannon Marquez (Source: Google)


Excellent service and professionalism. Dr Thomas helped both of our children find the perfect smile. Our experience was phenomenal; Dr Thomas and his staff are excellent. The early interventions Dr Thomas implemented for our daughter limited the time she needed in braces, and the end result was nothing short of beautiful! I cannot say enough about how great Center City Orthodontics really is…it was the best decision we ever made, and we continued to see him even after we moved from Center City to the Main Line.

Mia W. from Philadelphia, PA (Source: Yelp)


If you are looking for an orthodontist there is no one better than Dr. Thomas and his staff. I came into the office looking for a new splint/nightguard because I grind at night. Dr. Thomas gave me a consultation where he then answered all of my questions. He was very thorough and patient and his front desk assisant Heather gave me inforamtion about all of my options. I never felt pressured to choose the more expensive option, but I appreciated that they were honest and upfront about what the costs would be. Everyone in this office is extremely professional and friendly. From the moment I called the office to set up my initial appointment Heather was very personable and helpful. I visited the office about 4 times after my splint was made and each time Dr. Thomas adjusted it until it fit perfectly in my mouth. I really appreciated the attention to detail as well as the staffs caring and professional deameanor. This is a great office and I would refer them to anyone looking for an orthodontist
