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

R. E. from Huntington Beach, CA (Source: Yelp)


Katie, Briana, Katarina and Sara L. are the most amazing front office staff I’ve ever – and I mean ever – had the pleasure of meeting. They’re patient, always kind and smiling, and extremely helpful (even when I have to reschedule my child’s appointment … for the 5th time.) This ortho office is by far the best in the local area! I couldn’t ask for better service, a nicer environment, and a warmer staff. (Dr. Harner and all the dental techs are equally awesome.)  Thank you so much for helping us to make the best out of braces!!

My mom works in the dental field and found Dr. Harner for all three of her kids including me! He is the best Doctor and Sarah at the front is AMAZING. You will not be dissatisfied at all coming to this office. They are all very knowledgeable and understanding. I could go on and on about how professional, kind, and endearing the entire staff is, if you are looking for a long term orthodontist I highly recommend.

I found Harner Orthodontics a few years ago through Yelp by reviewing other’s comments.  They really are the best in the area and I tell all of my friends about this Orthodontist.  The entire staff is friendly and knowledgeable.  My daughter’s smile is AMAZING and she always gets compliments on how beautiful her smile is.  Our youngest daughter will be getting braces this year, and she is very excited about going to Harner.  Can’t say enough great things about this office and Dr. Harner.

I’m yelping Dr. Harner because he went way beyond what most doctors would have done. Dr. Harner isn’t even my orthodontist (mine is a 2 hr drive from my home) but my wire popped out from my back tooth (the most important when expanding the arch) and I could tell the tooth was moving so I took a chance and called an office close to my house. The staff, namely Courtney, was so nice and asked Dr. Harner if he could see me for a quick fix. This was his DAY OFF, they were not taking any patients. He said absolutely so I rushed over and he fixed my wire in no time. I wanted to pay but he said absolutely not. Not only did he fix my wire, but I also asked his opinion on what I was having done by the other ortho as I was questioning some things. He put me at ease and stated my doctor was performing the treatment that he would have carried out in my situation. I only wish I would have known about Dr. Harner before I started my treatment but if I ever need to return to an ortho after I am finished, I will definitely be returning to Dr. Harner. What an amazing practice, great office staff, beautiful clean office and service provided to an individual that isn’t even a patient… WOW! Thanks SO much Dr. Harner and staff, I will recommend to all of my friends and family.

I am a 63 year old female patient of Dr. Harner. Dr. Harner works with my general dentist and periodontist. Yes, I am a difficult case. My smile has never been as bright. My teeth have never been so stable. Grateful to Dr. Harner for his excellent knowledge and kindness!

M. H. from Huntington Beach, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr Harner and his staff are great.  They make the kids feel welcome and are always warm and friendly. They also anticipate your needs – let me give you a school note! before I need to ask.  My child is 5 months into treatment and already showing so much improvement. They remodeled so some of the photos are older.  It is a very bright, clean and neat office

I got my Invisalign express from these guys and found them to be very professional and friendly. Dr. Harner is honest and knowledgeable, something that is rare to find these days. He is also quite intuitive, realizing that I was an engineer he provided the in-depth detail about the treatment and long term maintenance, down to the case-studies. I wasn’t expecting this but it was greatly appreciated. As for the staff, they are friendly and highly efficient. It comes down to the details.. every single appointment, they called and emailed the day before to confirm. Their scheduling was near perfect every appointment; they expected me each time and I never waited more than a few minutes. It is hard to believe that over the course of 7 months, they never made a mistake. If my kids need orthodontics one day, they are going to Harner!

Susan S. from Huntington Beach, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Harner and the staff at Harner Orthodontics are awesome!! They are the friendliest, nicest staff you will ever meet. They really made my son feel comfortable when we first came to get his first set of braces when he was in 5th grade. He had a very complicated problem with his teeth and Dr. Harner recommended a very good surgeon as well. We are now in our second round of braces and It’s been going really well under Dr. Harner and his staff. My younger son isn’t ready yet, but he actually looks forward to getting braces because he is so well taken care of here. I would highly recommend them to anyone who needs braces.

Charlene G. from Newport Beach, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr Harner and his staff are awesome! I have a 9 year old who is currently a patient and is entering stage 1 of braces. My daughter loves the office, the staff, the fun video games they offer for kids to play while they wait. I love that we never sit in the waiting room for more than a few minutes, they are fast, very friendly, and you could tell they really care. When the time comes both of my younger children will be seeing Dr Harner and his staff in the future! Thank you Harner Ortho!

I got my braces done with Dr Harner over 6 years ago and my teeth still look fantastic.The girls in the office were always sweet and kind to me. I highly recommend this orthodontic office. Thank you Dr. Harner for giving a gorgeous smile that I can be proud of showing off.

Susie M. from Huntington Beach, CA (Source: Yelp)


Excellent service – professional and courteous staff. Dr. Harner is fabulous – he personally called on the evening of when my son’s braces were put on to check on how he was doing and if we had a questions!  We visited 3 different orthodontists and all were recommending similar treatment plans and prices however my son and I both felt the most comfortable with Dr. Harner and his staff.

Trang H. from Irvine, CA (Source: Yelp)


I’m currently with another orthodontist that is about to finish up the last stages of my treatment. I’m not too happy with my results so I came to Dr. Harner’s office for a second opinion. I couldn’t believe how helpful he was in discussing all my options and giving me all the resources needed to finish up my treatment. If i could redo my braces all over again, I would definitely go here.

Judith V. from Garden Grove, CA (Source: Yelp)


I have been going to this office for 2 years, I absolutely love the way the girls in the office treat me every time I go. Suzie and Jenna are very kind and professional. Lindsay is always happy and energetic at the front desk and Erin is always happy to schedule my future appointments. Dr. Harner is the best orthodontist! My teeth look fantastic. When I was looking into getting braces, I was told I needed surgery to correct my bite but Dr. Harner has been able to work miracles with my teeth and I am so happy that I choose this office to get my braces. Thanks Harner Orthodontics!!

This place is great!! Everyone is very friendly and professional. My husband and I knew right away during the consultation that this was the right place for our son to have his braces put on. The doctor was very straightforward, knowledgeable and didn’t give us a sales pitch, like we had received at a different local orthodontist’s office. The office is also spacious and super clean. We are happy with our choice and so is our son.

J. N. from Huntington Beach, CA (Source: Yelp)


Harner Orthodontics truly is a 5 star practice! Everyone is friendly and helpful. The exams are thorough and explained with patience. Very clean and comfortable. Affordable and on time!!! Dr. Harner is very conservative in his recommendations. My son needed the works to help change his bite and the difference is amazing. My daughter went in for a consult and he recommended that we just wait and watch how her teeth change. We are very pleased!

Cruising S. from Huntington Beach, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Harner and his entire staff are awesome! Professional, friendly, and probably one of the coolest vibes, I’ve ever experienced. The entire place is furnished with State of the Art equipment. it looks and feels like a 5 star hotel as they walk you through the entire treatment plan and I can’t give this place nothing less than perfect. I am a current patient and I personally look forward to completing my treament with Dr. Harner and his team. I highly recommend this place if you’re looking to get some ortho work done.

Dr. Harner is the most knowledgeable and skilled Orthodontist in Orange County. I’m in the dental industry, and this review will probably offend some clients, but that statement is 100% truth. He and his team run an extremely efficient operation, and treat everyone on a first name basis. Both my children have been treated by Dr. Harner, and I cannot be happier with the results. If you want your kids to have a beautiful smile, and a great dental experience, I highly recommend Dr. Harner. He is worth the commute from wherever you live!

Allyson R. from Huntington Beach, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Harner and staff are the best! The office staff is so sweet and always know us by name. You can tell they are treated well by Dr. Harner as everyone seems happy and most have been there for a long time. Dr. Harner is such a kind man. We have had 4 of us in braces and are thrilled with the service and our smiles. Thank you Harner Orthodontics!

Alisa A. from Huntington Beach, CA (Source: Yelp)


Second daughter to have Harmer do her orthodontics.  Excellent results, fair prices, exceptionally friendly and helpful staff and doctor, clean clean clean, appts are on time, and I could go on and on. Plus my 16 yr old missed an appt and didn’t call which was very inconsiderate but they were understanding and very nice about it. Love this place!’

Harner Orthodontics is somewhere you can go and know that no matter who you are, you are part of their Family. My son and I found Dr. Harner by accident and it has been the most happy and lucky accident. I am in the dental industry however was apprehensive about my son starting his ortho treatment. I am a single mother and had the option of going with in my network and getting the work done. Like I mentioned earlier – BY ACCIDENT I called and made an appointment – I have never looked back. Their office is not in my network however after being in the dental industry for over 20 years and one visit to their office I was NOT going to go any where else and we haven’t in over 4 years. Dr Harner and his amazing office staff have become Family to us. We trust them with every decision and plan they have for my Son’s braces. In 4 years – they have not deviated from what they have planned and/or promised us. My Son’s teeth have never looked better. Soon he will be finishing his Phase II and we can not wait to see the end result. We get smiles and a warm hello’s EVERY-TIME we walk in and we walk out with the same smiles that greeted us and we also know that we had a great experience and know that we are on the right track with the ortho program created for us. All of our treatments are unique and Dr. Harner knows and cares about every single patient. Another great quality about Harner Orthodontics is that his office is always contributing to organizations, raising money, raising awareness, having skating parties, running contests in their own office to make sure all of their patients are following the protocols. They are constantly being creative and making their Family larger and larger with more and more new patients. A part of us will be sad when it comes time to part ways – but somehow I feel as though we will always stop by and say Hello. Thank you Harner Orthodontics

Dr. Harner and staff are great. They are all super friendly. Did not pressure us to go through the procedure until the time was right.  Since we moved to LA, we stopped seeing him. Will be calling him soon to get a referral in the LA area.

Alesia H. from Fountain Valley, CA (Source: Yelp)


I could not ask for a better orthondontist than Dr. Harner! I have had the best possible professional care and it is due to Dr. Harner and his staff. They are amazing at what they do and it shows. Harner and his staff explains the process in great detail, making sure your treatment is most appropriate to you and your needs. I highly recommend Harner Orthondontics for their professional expertise; they will do the best job to give you a smile you deserve! They did for me! I’m so thankful to Dr. Harner, Suzie, Jenna, Lindsay, Erin & Holly!

Anne P. from Costa Mesa, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Harner and his friendly staff offer outstanding orthodontic care. You never feel rushed and all questions are patiently answered. Very diligent in coordinating my insurance benefits. A shout out to the excellent staff! They are knowledgeable, gentle and very professional. As an adult patient I appreciate  these qualities, knowing they are not found in all offices.  I always recommend Dr. Harner for orthodontics!

L. A. from Garden Grove, CA (Source: Yelp)


Harner Orthodontics comes HIGHLY recommnded from me.I’m 37 and needed braces but didn’t want the metal one so I wanted to see if I could do invisalign. I started invisalign in Dec 2012 and was expecting about 18 – 20 months of treatment. I had it for about 1 month when Dr Harner told me about acceladent (I’m super impatient) so I started using it right away. It has speed up my progress so much that I am almost finished with treatment (its only July 2013) and it really helps reduce pain and discomfort when you are changing trays. Dr Harner and his staff have been so friendly and supportive during my treatment and Dr Harner has always keep his appointment time with me (which is important becuase I stop in during lunch breaks). If you are looking for a great place…this is it!

Laurie K. from Newport Beach, CA (Source: Yelp)


When I made my son’s appointment for his first visit it was clear how friendly and caring they were going to be and I was right. The office was clean, organized and welcoming. They explained everything in detail not only to me, but also to my son. When we left we knew exactly what to expect and how much it would cost, there were no surprises. Dr. Harner and his staff are should be commended on their courtesy and professionalism. I would highly recommend them.
