Dr Harnick provided great orthodontic care. He is a knowledgeable professional and I love my new smile! I’m in my 40’s and was told by my dentist and a surgeon that I needed jaw surgery to correct a misalignment and alleviate my headaches. Braces were necessary to adjust my bite in preparation for the surgery. I’ve had braces twice before (in other states) and dreaded going back into braces for a third time at my age. The braces weren’t bad at all — they were nearly invisible. Dr. Harnick’s expertise in working with my surgeon made everything go very smoothly and ahead of schedule. After surgery my new bite fit perfectly, and now my jaw feels better and I’m smiling! I highly recommend Dr. Harnick for standard orthodontics as well as unusual cases. He knows what he’s doing!

Dr. Harnick did braces on my daughter several years ago. Her results were phenomenal. I was having issues with my teeth and found out I needed braces because my bite was causing trauma to my teeth and they were loosening up. I was told I needed a night guard as well. So I had 3 consults and everyone of them said I needed a full set of braces but I had two bridges in my mouth already. That was going to involve redoing my bridges. I said NO WAY. It was gonna cost me a fortune. So I went to Dr. Harnick and he was honest and detailed. He said if this was my mouth I wouldn’t redo your bridges and go through all that. He said it wasn’t necessary. He was able to correct my bite as best as it could be done under my circumstances and I wouldn’t loose my teeth or redo my bridges.. I am very pleased. He was very conservative and very honest and it made a lot of sense. I am happy with the results and the staff are very knowledgeable as well. Not all orthodontics know how to work with Invisalign. Dr. Harnick is very good at it. It takes skill and knowing how to move those teeth precisely. It’s not that simple. He did an excellent job! Bravo!

I had a great experience though Harnick orthodontics with getting braces. I’ve been with them for three years and came out with a smile i love. They were friendly and genuinely seems to enjoy their jobs on every visit.

Both Dr. Harnick’s are amazing. Great office and staff. And they support and boost local schools. They give back. 2 out of 3 kids with beautiful corrections so far! I highly recommend them for both conventional or InvisAlign. We have done both.

My son was referred to Harnick Orthodontics at age 10. He was almost done losing all of his baby teeth and adult were coming in. Dr Harnick was great in explaining why we should start with braces at this age. They were able to hold spaces so the adult teeth could come in and straighten as soon as possible. I was very impressed of the professionalism this group upkeeps, and the quality of care for each and every patient. I had braces when I was younger and because of Dr. harnick being proactive I was so happy and relieved my sons treatment was so easy, quick and comfortable for him. My son is now 12 years old and got off his braces. The before and after pictures are amazing! Thank you Dr Harnick and Thank you Emily for always able to get us in whenever we needed

I can’t recommend Dr. Harnick highly enough. He came recommended by my dentist, Dr. Gallagher. I had Invisalign consultations with a few doctors before making a decision. Dr. Harnick stood out for his deep assessment of my orthodontic needs and clear knowledge of and passion for Invisaligns. He doesn’t just go with the standard Invisalign algorithm. He worked with them and my teeth to meet my specific needs. And he worked with me until we were both satisfied. He and his staff do all of this in a highly professional and friendly manner, with consideration for your time – appointments run on time and efficiently. I was typically in and out within 15 minutes. I must add that over my more than two years of treatment I observed Dr. Harnick working with many children. He is as fun-loving and caring with them as he is with adults. I plan to take my daughter to him when she’s ready for braces in the next couple of years

Stefanie B. from Albuquerque, NM (Source: Yelp)


All three of my kids have had their braces done by Dr Harnick. All the appointments were easy to schedule, especially since we live out of town. The office staff are awesome and are always very friendly. We had a great experience and my kids have beautiful smiles! Thank you, Dr. Harnick and staff! I would highly recommend to friends and family.

Leah H. from Albuquerque, NM (Source: Yelp)


My son recently got his braces off and we couldn’t be happier with the results! Dr. Harnick was very professional throughout the process and we always felt well informed about his progress. He also has a great sense of humor and is pleasant to be around. The staff was all very friendly as well. On a couple of occassions, we needed to come in because my son ate something that dislodged a wire and they got us in immediately both times. I would not hesitate to recommend Dr. Harnick. We’ll definitely be back if my daughter needs braces as well.

Kiley M. from Verona, NJ (Source: Yelp)


My stepson is in town for the Summer (has his braces placed by an Orthodontist is PA). Last night he was eating dinner and “a wire came loose.” Harnick Orthodontics got him in at 10AM & took amazing care of us. Since a pleasant, easy, & stress-free experience. The office is beautiful! Thank you so so much for helping us out today. It was much appreciated! I Highly recommend Harnick Orthodontics!

I began my Invisalign adventure with Dr. Harnick nearly a year ago and his exceptional staff and at the age of 50, for me, this was no small undertaking. I have to be honest and mention that during treatment, I have had my minor problems with discomfort that caused me to throw tantrums and pitch fits, but I always knuckled down and stuck those little plastic suckers back in my mouth. This week, I will end the first segment of my treatment after working my way through 32 full sets of “trays” and the results are beyond amazing. As far back as I can remember, I have been bothered by the condition of my teeth and now that I am at this milestone, it seems silly that I didn’t take care of this sooner. Recently, I took a bite from a sandwich and stared in awe at the perfect semicircle void I had left behind. While this may seem trivial to most people, for those of us growing up with crooked teeth, the mark of a clean bite is enough to bring tears to our eyes. I can’t thank you enough

Polly L. from Albuquerque, NM (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Harnick and his team are WONDERFUL. My son’s teeth were so bad he couldn’t bite with his front teeth. We chose the Invisalign over traditional braces so that he could still eat whatever he wanted (raw carrots are among his favorite foods). The periodic visits were a breeze. His appointments were always on time, the office is clean and inviting, and the staff are friendly and kind. The treatment took the recommended time (18 months), and now my son’s teeth are perfect. AMAZING!

An T. from Albuquerque, NM (Source: Yelp)


I just finished my Invisalign with Dr. Harnick and I am really happy with the results. He really listens to what you say about your teeth. If there is anything you do not like, he will fix it right away. He is very honest and very nice. The office is very clean and he had friendly staff. I always feel welcome and even when I have to reschedule they are very nice about it. I highly recommend Dr. Harnick and his staff.

Marcus K. from Albuquerque, NM (Source: Yelp)


I was referred to Dr. Harnick after learning that my Invisalign case was too advanced for my primary dentist to handle. Not only was Dr. Harnick able to straighten my very crooked teeth, but he was also able to significantly improve my bite, all with Invisalign. What an amazing transformation! I have no hesitation in recommending Dr. Harnick. He and his staff are extremely pleasant and professional, and my smile is a testimony to his experience and expertise with Invisalign.

Joni L. from Los Lunas, NM (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Harnick and the staff at Harnick Orthodontics made my experience with braces the absolute best it could have been. I was a 20 year old getting braces for the first time with the added pain of jaw surgery in my treatment plan. Dr. Harnick gave me all the tools I needed to have a successful time in my braces, he made me look forward to the appointments and I am truly ecstatic about the results! I can’t stop smiling! There’s no one else I would trust for orthodontic care!

Connie L. from Albuquerque, NM (Source: Yelp)


We highly recommend Dr. Harnick and the awesome staff at Harnick Orthodontics. Dr. Harnick provides a personal touch to the entire process: from introducing himself with a personal phone call to clearly explaining your treatment plan. My preteen daughter previously suffered breathing difficulty and pain related to her palate and jaw. Harnick Orthodontics has made a world of difference in her life. Go with Harnick Orthodontics – You will not regret it for an instant!

Dr. Harnick is a true professional. He did my braces and my siblings. There was nowhere else I would choose for my own children. Now he and his daughter continue the work of restoring teeth with kindness and humor. They explain the process, give you choice along the way and make it comfortable. The office is highly organized, making appointments and payments is easy. The experience and training of the doctors is evident and the technique and technology up to date. I’d recommend Harnick orthodontist every time.

John B. from Albuquerque, NM (Source: Yelp)


I’ve seen many different orthodontists over the past 25 years as I’ve moved around the country due to my occupation. I can say, without hesitation, that Dr. Harnick is the best orthodontist I’ve ever seen. He’s caring, professional, and honest. I hate paying for unnecessary treatments, procedures, or products. You won’t need to worry about those issues with Dr. Harnick. I’m so thankful to have found him! His staff is also tremendously professional and personable.

Martha F. from Albuquerque, NM (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Harnick treated my daughter as a child. When I discovered I needed braces as an adult, I went back to Dr. Harnick. It was a relatively pleasant experience. It only took 8 1/2 months to complete my treatment, and the time was cut in half because I used an AcceleDent. It is an amazing device that gently vibrated my mouth/jaw and speeded up the process significantly. I highly recommend not only Dr. Harnick and his superb office staff but also an AcceleDent. Wearing braces as an adult is not fun, but cutting the time in half makes the process more palatable.

Natasha A. from Hawthorne, CA (Source: Yelp)


I knew I wanted Invisalign, so I searched for orthodontists in the area, found Dr. Harnick on the Invisalign website. He was the best of the best. Very knowledgeable, friendly guy. Works with you on any concerns you have during the treatment. Another orthodontist I went to was very apprehensive about my case (I had crowded, crooked teeth), telling me that I needed to have braces at the end, etc. This is not what I wanted being that I was in my late 20’s, early 30’s. However, Dr. Harnick reassured me that I would be fine without braces, and that he does two sets of impressions for the Invisalign braces. With that, I am so happy I went to him. I was moving to another state and he offered to take a look at my teeth one last time, this was even after my trays were done. My teeth are no longer crooked, and I finally have straight, pretty teeth! And I’ll add that the staff is friendly, they send out reminder calls for appointments, offer two locations for your convenience, and very clean offices/equipment. I would definitely recommend Harnick Orthodontics!

Was referred to Harnick Orthodontics by my dental hygienist. From the first visit to the last, communication was great. I was provided a packet with my options. I had the opportunity to give monthly payments. I had to go through lower jaw surgery and thought both surgeon and Orthodontist kept me informed about was was going to happen. Two years after beginning the process, my smile looks fabulous. I received two retainers and even a whitening kit to perfect my smile even more. Although I hated having braces, I lOVE my results!

I just finished my Invisalign treatment. I am amazed at the results and how quick it was! I now love my smile! Thanks to Dr. Harnick and his staff I had a great experience. They are flexible with appointment times. I could get in and out quickly and still get to work on time. Everyone is always friendly. I would highly recommend to anyone! Thanks Dr Harnick!

My family was new to New Mexico and I found Harnicks when I was in desperate need to get a wire cut. There was no other place who was willing to do it. They were super friendly and helpful before we were even clients. Harnicks goes above and beyond for their clients. I highly recommend them if your looking for a new orthodontist or a fantastic place to get started.

Lorraine G. from Las Vegas, NM (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Harnick and his staff are the absolute best! After getting three other consultations, before visiting Dr. Harnick, all the other orthodontists cautioned that my severe overbite was going to be hard to fix and take at least two years of braces, and did not guarantee a perfect smile. When, I visited Dr. Harnick’s office he did advise me that my case was going to be somewhat difficult to treat, but assured me that Invisalign was a viable option and would correct my issues within two years- the best part is the treatment cost was better priced than at other officess. The other dental staff is always happy and welcoming, plus there is almost zero wait time from check-in to getting taken back, which makes them very efficient at their job (most appointments took about 15 minutes from when I walked in the door). A year and a half later the results were better than expected and could not have asked for a better experience. I would absolutely recommend Dr. Harnick to anyone seeking a great orthodontist.

I had a followup appointment with Dr Harnick on 13 June 2016 in their new office location. The new office is bright and airy; staff reception was friendly and informed. As I just finished lunch and had no time to brush my teeth, I was directed to the “brush station” where one-time “pre-pasted” toothbrushes were available. Dr Harnick was beaming when he greeted me. He knew me and my case thoroughly upon walk-in. We discussed the status of my OSAS MRD device he had fabricated and any symptoms I reported and mutually agreed that we were on track. Conclusion: My Harnick Orthodontics OSAS MRD is working great! THANK YOU TO DR HARNICK and EVERYONE at HARNICK ORTHODONTICS!

I would like to take this time again to thank Dr. Harnick and all the staff at “Harnick Orthodonics” they were all amazing! I was referred to Dr. Harnick by my Dentist who knew that I had been dealing with sleep apnea and crowding with my teeth. My Dentist advised me to consult with Dr. Harnick because he had additional training/understanding with sleep apnea. Once I consulted with Dr. Harnick, he conducted an extensive study of my mouth and was able to come up with a plan to help correct these issues. Dr. Harnick worked with a local Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeon and together the plan was put into motion. I first started with braces and Dr. Harnick along with his staff worked his plan to prep my teeth for jaw surgery. Once the surgery was complete Dr. Harnick continued his plan to straighten my teeth and correct my bite. I just recently got my braces off and I’m here to tell you that my teeth are nice and straight, my bite is better then ever, and I no longer have sleep apnea! The experience has been life changing! I like to thank Dr. Harnick who’s plan made it all happen. I especially give thanks to “GOD” who granted the knowledge and guided the skill of all that were involved!

Luisa H. from San Francisco, CA (Source: Yelp)


We have had such a great experience at Harnick Orthodontics! We moved from El Paso and Dr. Harnick was great about taking over my son’s orthodontic treatment. The staff is very nice and they are all very professional and good at what they do. My son enjoys his visits and will have a perfectly beautiful smile thanks to Dr.Harnick and his fabulous team! I will be recommending him to everyone I know!! We couldn’t have hoped for a better experience.

Mark R. from Albuquerque, NM (Source: Yelp)


My 16 year old son completed his Invisalign treatment recently. The entire experience was great, appointments were conveniently scheduled, we were in and out quickly, and the outcome was awesome. Dr. Harnick guided us to the Invisalign treatment since my son plays contact sports, and this ended up being great advice and did not interfere or cause any complications with his activities. Thanks for a great experience!

Sela B. from Rio Rancho, NM (Source: Yelp)


I just started treatment on June 7th (or something close to that), and I am already pleased with the service! Dr. Harnick and his dental assistants are super nice! While Dr. Harnick is strict about hygiene, he also rewards you for doing good on your hygiene. He gave me the honest facts on what would happen if I didn’t keep taking care of my teeth. His offices are very fun and friendly, having video games and plenty of magazines to indulge in. When I first got my braces on, they also gave me a t-shirt of two chiles asking Braces or Invisalign. I got braces, and I am already thinking about what my next color should be! Very impressed! See you in August!

Vanessa R. from Albuquerque, NM (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Harnick and his team were incredibly professional and friendly for every single appointment. I was told that I needed surgery to correct my bite, but Dr. Harnick was able to use invisalign braces to straighten my teeth and correct my bite. The entire process took less than 2 years and I couldn’t be happier with the results. I am just disappointed in myself for waiting so long. I highly recommend Dr. Harnick and his staff!

Eloisa B. from Gallup, NM (Source: Yelp)


I was looking for dental offices online that offer invisalign services and I’m very glad that I found Harnick Orthodontics! The team was really great, welcoming, and very considerate. They even made my visits convenient for me since I live about 2 hours away and they had me scheduled to visit every 6 or 8 weeks. My teeth were a really hard case for me to even wear invisalign. However, I deeply appreciate Dr. Harnick taking on the challenge because I really did want to wear invisalign instead of braces. I am almost done with everything and am currently wearing retainers now. After about 3 years going back and forth to Harnick Orthodontics, I can confidently say that they have made my teeth look very great and that I, 10 out of 10, completely would recommend you seeing them!

Linda G. from Albuquerque, NM (Source: Yelp)


I started tratment by Dr. Harnick late in life. At 67 yrs,My teeth were crooked always catching tea stains which added to the ugly look. I hated being photographed,always trying not to smile. Treatment with invisalign was easy pain less and required very few office checkups. My teeth are straight , my bite is improved. I now smile broadly for the camera ! Dr. Harnick did an amazing job. I am a great fan. Linda Gillio

My daughter has been going to Dr. Harnick for over 5 years now – he had to correct a major error caused by another doctor, plus schedule jaw surgery, and wait for her to grow to complete his work – all the time adjusting, adjusting, making the best of a most difficult task. The results are phenomenal! My daughter now has a beautiful smile and is more confident with her appearance than ever. Thank you Dr. Harnick for tending to my family’s needs and taking such good care of her smile! Lynn Perlman

I went to 6 orthodontists before choosing Harnick orthodontics. Their professionalism was top notch and there was no hard selling. And out of everyone their plan for my teeth’s movement made the most sense. Others wanted to remove a tooth due to extreme crowding and Dr Harnick said we didn’t have to! Also, no one else felt I was a candidate for Invisalign. Well, they were wrong because I have a great smile with Invisalign! I highly recommend Dr. Harnick and the friendly, professional staff!

Kim F. from Rio Rancho, NM (Source: Yelp)


I can’t say enough wonderful things about Dr. Harnick and his staff! I just finished invisalign treatment with outstanding results. I originally started invisalign treatment to make some adjustments to my jaw but had the added benefit of straightening my teeth. My smile is wonderful and all of my jaw problems are now non-existent. Dr. Harnick is truly fantastic! To say he is a master at his trade is an understatement. His office runs like clockwork and his staff is the best around. I never thought orthodontic treatment could be so pleasant. I will definitely take my kids to Dr. Harnick with their orthodontic needs in the future.

Joanne D. from Albuquerque, NM (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Harnick and his staff are excellent and I would highly recommend them. I have clear, conventional braces and you can barely see them. This is especially important to me because I am an older adult, and I was worried about how they would look. Dr. Harnick really listened to my concerns, and I am very pleased with the results. I am so glad that I got braces as I have already seen significant results after only 7 months. He has made this process relatively painless for me, and infinitely rewarding.
