I had a great experience with Dr. Messenger and Messenger Orthodontists. After several interviews of Orthodontist, I made the decision to join Messenger Orthodontist. I love the office atmosphere- the decor is awesome. Shannon greets me each visit by name. No more huge trays in the mouth to take impressions. She has state of the art technology. Her assistants are professional, courteous and knowledgeable. Dr. Messenger takes her time to answer all my questions and explained my treatment. Omg Invisalign treatment was completed on time and I love my smile.

Where do I start…. This office is everything! If you are looking for a place that is quality and makes you feel like a person (not a number), this is the office for you. The details say it all… Welcome signs with your name, fun programs like Messenger Money and all the cute swag, to the beautiful and bright office. They make the whole experience so much fun! Dr. M and Shannon are also the best! Very friendly & knowledgeable! I highly recommend.

Dr Messenger and staff are professional and caring, efficient and know exactly how to keep a dental specialist (like myself) happy! She is one of the few providers of InBrace lingual braces and I am beyond happy with the product and my invisible braces smile! The office is clean, comfortable, and very bright and open. Very happy with the care here!

I transferred from another office & was absolutely blown away with how modern & clean the office was. When I went in for my initial consultation they took in house x-rays which was so awesome & something I had never experienced. My consultation was quick & informative. All the women were so nice & had smiles on their faces, they all made me feel so welcomed! Can’t wait to continue my treatment with Dr. M!

I took my daughter here today and I highly recommend it! Shannon who is the office manager is super helpful and friendly. The office is gorgeous and they even have Nintendo switch for the kids to play while waiting! Dr. Messenger is very kind and very honest and we are so excited to start our journey for a beautiful smile for my daughter.

Jennifer and her whole staff is very caring, thoughtful, and professional. Appointments were easy to schedule and we were seen on time. The practice is clean, open, and includes state of the art equipment for accurate adjustments. I would definitely come here again.

Had braces for one year and 7 months here and it was an amazing experience! My teeth are now perfect! If you need to get your teeth straightened i recommend going here, they are not only super nice and delightful, but the whole place is super neat and clean! Everyone is so welcoming and they are super flexible with appointments, 10/10 recommend going here!

Yes, yes, YES! This is the office you’ve been looking for. They offer a wide range of options to suit your orthodontic needs. As an adult in my 30s, I was looking to straighten my teeth with “invisible” braces. While I loved the look of traditional braces as a teen, this time around I was hoping for something more discreet. I was offered the option of Invisalign or the relatively newer option of lingual braces. If you don’t know about lingual braces, they are braces you wear on the back side of your teeth instead of the front side. So yes, they are invisible when you smile, talk, or basically any time you would show your teeth. I chose this option because I liked the fact that they were fixed to my teeth and I didn’t have to fuss with removing them for each meal like I would with the Invisalign. It takes a bit of getting used to, but once that initial break in period is over, you will forget it’s even in there! No fuss, no problems! At just a little over a year, my treatment is complete and I couldn’t be happier with the results! Dr. Messenger is an absolute gem! Her office manager, Shannon, is amazing as well! The rest of the staff is great and I always leave with a smile after every visit. 5 STARS!!

I just had my first consult with Dr. Jen Messenger at Messenger Orthodontics. I felt so welcomed and immediately had my nerves eased as we started to talk about my cosmetic options. The office is so high tech with state of the art X-rays, 3 D scanner for my teeth, etc. and the overall feel is so fresh and clean. She gave me the most comprehensive consultation, giving me all my options and making the decision so easy for me. I highly recommend Dr. Messenger for anyone wanting to start orthodontics at any age! Her office staff is so kind and welcoming as well. Can’t wait to start treatment very soon!

We love Dr. M!!  My 10 year old daughter and I both see Dr. Messenger.  I had horrible TMJ and Dr. Messenger worked out a plan using Invisaline and I’m already feeling so much better.  My daughter just started her Invisaline as well.  I couldn’t be happier and highly recommend Dr. M!

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


Our daughter reads a lot and had always asked to have the OG braces. It finally happened! The Messenger team was very light handed, explained post care and like always were extremely sweet and patient with our walking encyclopedia. Super happy!

Very kind and welcoming experience. I went in for a consultation. Shannon was very kind, attentive, and informative. Dr. Messenger is the best. I felt very welcomed the whole time. The office is very beautiful, bright, inviting, and open. You can tell that they take great pride in their work and business. The little things like their quote package and the welcome screen with your name on it, shows that they care about the guest experience. 🙂

WOW……after researching several Orthodontist for several months, my daughter and I are so glad that we found Dr. Messenger’s office. SUPER professional, advanced technology and such a warm family environment in her office. The manager Shannon is absolutely incredible. She helped answer a lot of our questions and really educated us re: the different types of braces they’re are and which ones are the best on the market. Dr. Messenger treated my 15 year old daughter with so much kindness and really got to know who she is, what kinds of activities she enjoys and really made her feel comfortable. Dane the assistant was such a gentle soul and overall the experience has been top notch. I would definitely recommend checking out this office before making any decisions regarding braces for you and your family. Since it is a big commitment, you want to be sure that you have the right people taking care of your teeth. THANK YOU Dr. Messenger & staff!!!

I brought my son Harry in for an evaluation and was so impressed with the beautiful office. Shannon the manager was very friendly, staff was attentive! Dr. Messenger Explained everything so throughly and in terms that someone who isn’t in the field, like me could understand. We are looking forward to starting treatment with them.

I recently had one of my wires break on my permanent retainer (super uncomfortable) I work across the street from Messenger and they were able to see me the following day! Everyone was so nice, Shannon who greats you at the front is great and it’s so cute and clean. Highly recommend!
