Sugarhouse Orthodontics constantly goes above and beyond, exceeding my expectations with every situation and interaction. Dr. Graham and his team are so caring and considerate. They have truly made my orthodontic experience better than I thought possible. They are always honest and transparent in their direction and advice, but clearly the masters of their field. I feel cared for and respected and know without a doubt I am getting the best care possible.

The office is gorgeous, the technology is cool, but my favorite part is how they treated me at the office. They were friendly, informative (without being condescending), understanding (no lectures), and just plain great to chat with. Pros: Great customer service Gorgeous space, feels very luxe Fun perks (ipads, massage chairs, bushing station, coffee, etc.) Awesome Invisalign Scanner (See photo) Clear and transparent pricing Financing options Cons: Fairly expensive (not like overpriced, but like you get what you pay for)

We have had a great experience! Everyone is friendly and always make a point to say hello. It makes you feel like family. My daughter was 8 when she got her braces and they are great with her and answering our questions. If you want a great orthodontist experience you should be going to Graham!!

Dr. Graham is fantastic and his team are just as wonderful. Never had to wait. Everything explained in great detail. My daughter, son and I all come here. My teenage daughter is extremely nervous with doctor’s and she looks forward to seeing Dr. Graham. He is very gentle and very motivational. We travel over an hour to see him and it is so worth it. Love, love, love GRAHAM ORTHODONTICS.

I have had the best experience at Graham Orthodontics. I initially got Invisalign to help with pain in my teeth while I chew. I have other medical conditions to where the left side of my body is numb. Come to find out this was affecting the pain in my mouth. Dr. Graham went out of his way and took the time to make multiple extra trays (3 or 4 trays after Invisalign was finished) to make sure my bite felt good. Great experience would recommend Dr. Graham and his staff to anyone.

I have and will continue to recommend everyone who needs to see an orthodontist to Dr. Graham. I checked around a little bit before getting Invisalign and I’m glad I did. Not only is Dr. Graham great but the entire staff from the front desk to the assistants create a great and trusting environment for you from the start. I’m convinced this is the best place to go in the entire Salt Lake Valley!

I could not be more pleased! I look forward to every visit with Dr. Graham and his team. They are so upbeat and professional, and it is clear to me that they are the very best at what they do. I have been wearing my braces since May, and I am amazed at the changes in my smile. Even more than that, I can actually close my mouth comfortably for the first time because my teeth actually fit together. I have traditional braces and have been wearing rubber bands. I thought it would be painful, but it’s more of a slight inconvenience. I wish I had done this years ago! I highly recommend Sugarhouse Orthodontics! They are simply the best!

Dr Graham and his staff have been wonderful and diligent in my care. They’ve ensured that even when shutdown that all my questions and concerns were addressed. They are being extremely careful with their patients and themselves with Covid-19. I appreciate the hard work and dedication it takes to provide health care now. That said they were outstanding before this crazy time! The care and professionalism shown at Graham Orthodontics is only highlighted now. They are well worth the time and cost of treatment. My thanks to the whole staff!

Graham Orthodontics exemplifies the highest standard of dental care I have ever seen in my own 40 years of dental experience as a dental hygienist. Their sophistication in technology is unrivaled. This in conjunction with a professional and caring staff make it easy to give a 5-Star plus recommendation to anyone interested in the best in orthodontics!!

Words cannot describe the anxiety one feels as an adult and has to look into braces due to a jaw issue. Not only did my fears go completely out of their gorgeous windows that over look the park, but they explained everything to me in such a thorough way. The doctor was so excited to tell me what was wrong with my jaw (no one has known until now) but addressed everything that was causing me stress about my smile including a remedy for my low gums. Dr. Graham had no idea that I was too embarrassed to show my teeth when I smile. I can’t wait to get the smile I have always wanted and to no longer have jaw problems. Best orthodontist around with the sweetest staff. Cher deserves props (his office manager) for making sure you understand the whole process. They have figured out how to do this right!

Cliff H. from Salt Lake City, UT (Source: Yelp)


Sugarhouse Orthodontics has been the best. After putting braces on four kids with three different Orthodontic offices, I can honestly say that Dr. Graham and his team are the most professional, courteous, and effective. The last two kids had their gear installed for much less time and the results have been awesome. I highly recommend them to anyone looking.

Zoe B. from Salt Lake City, UT (Source: Yelp)


My name is Zoe and I am 13 years old and I absolutely LOVE Sugarhouse Orthodontics! They are so gentle and everyone is so friendly! When something breaks or pops off, they try to get you an appointment to fix it as soon as possible. Dr.Graham is so nice and not like other boring orthodontists. They also have great decor and massage chairs and iPads to entertain yourself while you wait. On top of that they have a complimentary coffee brewer machine with a lot of choices (including hot cocoa) and goldfish. Sugarhouse Orthodontics is the place to go!

I love Sugarhouse Orthodontics! The staff is always so welcoming, professional and helpful. I am an adult patient, and am more than confident in Dr. John Graham’s treatment and expertise. After just 3 months, I have seen drastic changes and am so appreciative of your help! I actually look forward to my appointments and cannot wait to see the end results! Thanks to all of the staff at Sugarhouse Orthodontics!

Dr. Graham and his crew are THE BEST!! I did a ton of research before committing to braces/Invisalign. I checked out a few places and called around but nothing compared to the way doctors Graham’s office made me feel. They quickly got me in, helped with all the paper work and insurance and about a week later I was starting my Invisalign journey! Everyone is so kind and helpful. I am in love with the way my teeth are looking. Doctor Graham is very personal, throughout, and genuinely cares about his patients. I am so glad I followed my gut feeling and continued service with this practice. Don’t walk, RUN to his office if you have the slightest interest in fixing your smile 🙂

We love Dr. Graham and his staff!! Our older daughter is in the last months of treatment, which, thanks to Dr. Graham and diligent rubber band usage, will have only taken around 12 months, 6 months less than anticipated. Our younger daughter is about to start treatment. With our younger daughter, we brought her in because she wasn’t happy with how her smile looked. Dr. Graham was very honest in his evaluation, letting us know that it was probably a bit early to start work, as she is 11 and still losing and gaining teeth, so we made a follow-up appointment to watch the situation. At the follow-up appointment, he once again said that full braces for her would likely not happen for another 9 months or so. However, upon seeing how much our daughter wanted her smile to be better now, he came up with a short term solution to help that happen. She and we couldn’t be happier! Thanks Dr. Graham and staff for providing trustworthy orthodontic care and for making orthodontist appointments something to look forward to!

I love Graham Orthodontics! They are exceptional and given some of the BEST customer service I’ve ever experienced. I’m not kidding when I say I brag about them to everyone all the time. No one believes that there is an orthodontic office that does all that they do for their patients. I’m just about done with my Invisalign treatment and I could not be happier with my smile. Thanks for everything Graham Orthodontics!!

I can’t say enough about Dr. Graham and his team! Every interaction I have had with them has been wonderful. They are professional, kind, and caring. Every time I leave there I am impressed by how much they all seem to love their jobs. I was nervous about getting braces but getting them has been a very positive experience thanks to Dr. Graham and his team!

My daughter recently had an appointment with Dr Graham and it happened to be on her birthday! Dr Graham and his wonderful team made her day with treats and the whole team sang to her!! Dr Graham and his team truly care about their patients and take the time to listen to provide them with the best treatment. We have really enjoyed getting to know Rafael one of Dr Graham’s assistants, he’s so friendly and is very good at what he does! We would recommend Dr Graham to anyone looking for an orthodontist, you will LOVE him!!!

My experience at Graham Orthodontics has been great. They take great care in their patients. I have always been treated with kindness and whenever I have a question or concern it has been addressed. Dr. Graham is great, such a gem. The process during COVID is super efficient and I feel safe going in for appointments. Highly recommend. Shoutout to Rafael!

As a 29-year-old getting braces for the second time, I wasn’t expecting to have any kind of “stellar” orthodontic experience–boy, was I wrong! I friggin LOVE this place. I just finished 5 months of treatment and I’m already thinking of ways to go back (I could get braces on my top teeth, too, right?) I love Dr. Graham, and I LOVE THE STAFF!!!! The building itself is stupidly beautiful, but you discover very quickly that they didn’t sacrifice quality for aesthetic. Dr. Graham is crazy good at what he does, he’s funny, kind, knowledgable, and reasonable. Every single staff person is so nice, interesting to talk to, funny, and good at what they do. I literally cannot recommend this place highly enough. I know Graham is also well-known for his invisalign treatments–I regularly saw older people (not just kids) coming in for adjustments or consults or whatever. GO HERE YOU WON’T REGRET IT! I LOVED GETTING BRACES AGAIN!!!! WHICH IS A WEIRD THING TO SAY BUT I CAN’T LIE!!!!

Meghan K. from Park City, UT (Source: Yelp)


I had such a great experience at Graham Orthodontics. The Invisalign Express treatment straightened my teeth (that had shifted over time) quickly. I appreciate the ease in scheduling and how the receptionists will tell you how much time one should plan for each office visit. The staff is friendly and extremely knowledgeable. Dr. Graham is the best! I will definitely refer my friends & family.

Alisyn Wallace (Source: Facebook)


My first experience with Graham Orthodontics did not disappoint! The office and waiting room is state of the art, modern and clean. Everything was explained to us and we left excited for my daughter to get braces. Lastly, I was pleasantly surprised with the overall cost, (without insurance) and that we could do it on a monthly payment plan.

Our experience at Graham Orthodontics has been nothing but incredible. Myself and 4 of my kids have had the greatest experience. The staff is kind, inviting, and professional. The treatment and care is top of the line. Dr Graham is the best! He is welcoming, funny, and gregarious. He truly cares about achieving the greatest outcome in each case. I would recommend Graham Orthodontics to anyone in need of orthodontic treatment.

Sugarhouse Ortho is one of the leading orthodontics offices in our humble city of Salt Lake, and personally my favorite. I have gone to other orthodontists, all of which have treated their patients as patients. The first thing I saw when I walked into other offices was a bored looking receptionist who was indifferent as to how my day was going. However, at Sugarhouse Ortho, the moment you walk into the office, someone is there to greet you with a welcoming smile and a fantastic attitude. And best of all, the staff at Sugarhouse Ortho wastes no time getting you signed in. While at most other offices, the receptionist would ask for your name and your scheduled appointment, staff at Sugarhouse Ortho takes the time to get to know their patients, and its nice to know that your orthodontist actually cares about you. And, while waiting in the comfortable waiting room, where you can sit in the massage chairs, use one of the many iPads, and have a free cup of hot chocolate, you can expect a great orthodontic experience. And not to mention, Dr. Graham is THE nicest orthodontist I have ever met, and I am so glad that I can trust him to get the job done. -Chase, 13

I am writing on behalf of my daughter, a minor, who just finished treatment. (Full disclosure: I am also a patient at Graham Orthodontics, so we spend a lot of time at this office �. We are so thrilled to say her smile looks amazing and we couldn’t have been more satisfied with the overall experience. The entire staff makes the process seamless, expedient and I may even venture to say, pleasurable (thank you, paraffin dip). The office is immaculate and there are nice touches like iPads (comes in handy for impatient little brothers), beverages and massage chairs that make the wait time (minimal) fly by. The staff understands and works very hard to secure optimal appointment times for a busy high schooler and we never had trouble getting a desired time. The techs are very competent, patient and kind. I’m sure they see tons and tons of mouths on a daily basis, yet it was always evident that they remembered our names and we felt personally acknowledged every visit. You can tell that there’s great communication between all the teams and everyone feels very ‘looped in’. Dr. Graham is an orthodontics wizard as far as I’m concerned. His positive, efficient, upbeat demeanor are matched by his deep knowledge and technical skills and we felt we were under the most professional, competent care every visit. My daughter also finished treatment exactly as predicted and her smile is lovely. Overall, a very wonderful experience. Thanks!

I interviewed 3 Orthodontists, a Maxillofacial surgeon and 2 cosmetic dentists before deciding to go with Dr. Graham. Being 33 years old I was so worried that I would have to get surgery to correct my bite but Dr. Graham assured me that it wouldn’t be necessary. I am amazed at the speed in which my bite and teeth are improving. I always look forward to my appointments with Sugarhouse Orthodontics. Everyone has a smile when I walk in and their professionalism is second to none. They are all awesome at what they do!

I love Dr Graham and his staff!! They are all very nice and welcoming. They have always worked with me and made things super easy. Deciding to get braces as an adult is always a little nerve-wracking but the moment I walked in Dr Grahams office I knew that’s where I would want to have it done, even when I live quite away from them, it was totally worth it! I have looked forward to every single visit and got to love everyone there. Best experience ever! I will miss everyone ❤️ My teeth look incredible! I’m so happy with my smile now.. Thank you Dr Graham!!

Deborah R. from Puyallup, WA (Source: Yelp)


We moved from Washington State a few years ago and our orthodontist highly recommended Dr. Graham. I have been so impressed by his professionalism, extensive knowledge and ability to work on hard mouth cases. His office is very nice and his staff is helpful and very friendly. We have had such a positive experience at his office and my boys love going to his cool office. I would recommend him to anyone who has orthodontic needs.

Carolyn K. from Salt Lake City, UT (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Graham and his staff are outstanding! They are always on time and very friendly. I have complete confidence in Dr. Graham. He is very patient and kind. He has made it clear that he doesn’t want my son to suffer if he breaks a wire or feels one poking out. He has fit us in to fix broken wires and has been very understanding. The office itself is very beautiful, but more importantly, you are getting excellent care from Dr. Graham.

My jaw surgeon sent me to Dr. Graham for treatment of a complex jaw problem with Invisalign, and I am so grateful to have found him. He is incredibly talented, and his treatment is carefully and thoughtfully planned. Truly, he (and his amazing staff) have so dramatically improved and changed the quality of my life in such short order that I am at a loss as to how to properly thank them. After existing on a mostly liquid /soft food diet for so long, they had me eating more normally in less than a month! The office is beautiful, and the staff are all awesome. As for the price, it is quite reasonable, especially in consideration of the incredible, cutting edge care. All of that aside, they are all very cool and kind people who love what they do!

My son just had his braces put on and Dr. Graham and his staff were incredibly professional and kind. Facilities were immaculate and the procedure was fast and easy. From the appointment reminders to the follow-up emails, I continue to be impressed. Would recommend Sugarhouse Orthodontics to all.

I can’t speak highly enough about my experience. From the warm smiles at the front desk to the infinite charm and talent of Dr. Graham. Over the last year I’v never waited more tan 5min for an apt. More often than not, I am called at my exact appointment time. All of the Ortho assistants are very talented, professional and quite affable. My goal was to have perfect teeth, something I’v always wanted, by my 40th birthday. I got a few quotes, as to get the best price. I ended up choosing Dr. Graham, not because his quote was the cheapest, but because I could tell he would deliver the best result. I am so thankful to his practice. The only regret I have is not doing this sooner.

Crystal G. from Salt Lake City, UT (Source: Yelp)


I started going to this practice when they were brand new to SLC. I was a little worried at first, because they seemed not to know where the supplies were and employees seemed a bit frazzled– but since they have figured things out, they are fantastic! Love the office, staff and comfortable environment. Everyone seems to know who I am and calls me by name. Never have to wait long to be called from the waiting room. Snacks and drinks are readily available, and they even have iPads for the kids to use while they wait. Wow! As far as their medical care, they want you to come out looking your very best. If that means leaving your braces on for months longer than they initially thought, they will do it to ensure you have the very best smile. They were upfront and honest about the cost and did everything they could to make it affordable for me. My only complaint is that it’s hard to get an appointment that works with my schedule, but it’s more my own fault for having a strange work schedule. I would definitely recommend Sugarhouse Orthodontics to my friends and family.

Today I had my first appointment since the Covid-19 closer at Graham Orthodontics. I called once I arrived and Rafael met me in the parking lot. He had a mask in case I didn’t. I went up the stairs where I sanitized my hands, had my temperature taken, and answered a few questions. Once I arrived upstairs, I washed my hands and was directed to my chair. I was separated from the other patients by more than 6 feet. The dental assistant had a clean and orderly work station. I rinsed my mouth with a rinse provided to me. They were great. I am extremely comfortable with all of the precautions that were taken. Thank you for everything Graham Orthodontics did to keep me safe and healthy.

If an ortho recommends jaw surgery as part of your adult ortho treatment plan, I’d go to Dr. Graham’s office for a second opinion! I had braces as a teen. Now in my mid 30s, my teeth were shifting and my bite on my right side was off. I decided to check out another ortho who recommended jaw surgery–what a shock! I did not feel good at all about getting jaw surgery and left that office getting ideas in my head about what else is wrong with my face. My husband was livid when I told him about possibility of getting jaw surgery lol! I remembered that one of my coworkers mentioned he had similar issue about needing jaw surgery with a different ortho and was able to do his treatment just with braces at Dr Graham so I scheduled a consult there. Dr. Graham and his team are very detailed oriented in evaluating your treatment plan. Everyone is so friendly and nice! I also like the convenience of filling out patient forms and insurance info all on my phone. His office offers a variety of ortho products, it is not like the traditional braces where you stick rubber bands to secure the brackets. For comparison, the other ortho said my total treatment time would take 24 months, including the surgery with regular braces. With Dr. Graham, my treatment would require a motion appliance and Invisalign for 12-18 months. That is a huge difference! Go see several orthos and compare because they are not all the same. I just left Graham Ortho office feeling so happy and know I’ll be in good hands and receiving great care. I can’t wait to start my treatment soon!!
