Yes, they are really great with the orthodontics etc and the staff is always very sweet. But just as importantly, I gotta say – Nantz has the BEST waiting room! Tastefully decorated, truly comfortable chairs & couches with throw pillows, coffee bar & water, and the best array of magazines! Plus computer games for the kids. I’m literally bummed at how quickly they take care of my kiddos’ tightenings (and it’s always zippy) because how often do moms get to just sit & read Southern Living & drink a cup of tea without anyone bugging us?? Thanks y’all!! Psst – The only thing better would be to add snacks, and real creamers 🙂

Dr. Nantz is just wonderful. He is patient, caring, calm, and really easy to talk to. His entire office staff is just delightful. Everyone is so kind and accommodating and make my daughter feel comfortable. They also really work with your insurance and they take a lot of insurances which really helps save you money. I can’t recommend their practice enough. I also like that they are conservative and don’t push braces early. We are waiting on my other daughter because she doesn’t need anything pre work. So thankful she will get braces one time when she really needs them.

Best orthodontist in Austin!! I would highly recommend him. My teeth look fabulous. Dr Nantz is not only a fabulous orthodontist he truly cares about his patients…plus his staff rocks!! They are fun and always happy to see you..even when you break a bracket…the front office is also extremely friendly. The accommodate your schedule and are always willing to answer any questions you might need about billing or any other needs! The whole practice is amazing. I highly recommended Nantz to anyone who wants to have beautiful teeth!!

We are now 8 months in and LOVE the office & staff!  You all are doing a tremendous job & Haven loves going to her appointments.  As well as I do so I can get my Lemon ZInger tea fix.  Haven’s teeth are coming together perfectly and it brightens her day every time she notices how straight they’re getting.  Keep up the good work and thank you!

I have had a wonderful experience with Nantz Orthodontics so far. The entire staff is so friendly and they seem genuinely happy to be there. Everyone is very knowledgeable and I never felt any pressure to commit to a treatment plan. Dr. Nantz always makes a point to pop in and say hi, even when he isn’t doing work on me. My fear of the dentist is completely washed away when I walk through the doors.

Carol L. from Austin, TX (Source: Yelp)


I was debating between choosing Dr. Nantz or another orthodontist.  The deal breaker was 1)The approach in which the financial explanation was provided and 2)Dr. Nantz’s approach to not extract permanent teeth if it was even slightly possible that they could be saved.  Back story: I had two quotes, one from Dr. Nantz’s and another from a very good Orthodontist.  However, Anna, the treatment coordinator, was so kind and nice, and answered every single question I had about the finances (and it was a LOT!) with patience and grace.  I never felt pressured, and was never made to feel dumb.  Regarding the extraction, my 70 yr old father is having trouble keeping his teeth in, so the fact that Dr. Nantz wanted to approach extraction more conservatively was also great news.  To put the icing on the cake, I recently went to get my teeth cleaned at another location and learned the treatment coordinator there was the former TC for Dr. Nantz as well.  She raved about him and said she is currently in treatment with him as well with her own set of braces!  Even though by that time I had already committed to Dr. Nantz, this was further confirmation that we chose correctly.  And we haven’t even started treatment yet!  I am really looking forward to getting to know Dr. Nantz and his staff as we enter our 2 year treatment!

I can not say enough good things about Dr. Nantz and his whole staff! My son went through the whole process and we loved them so much that now my daughter is going through it. She had braces put on yesterday. She was having so much trouble eating and so we popped in today, without an appointment, to see if someone could spend 5 minutes with her to help her with the eating issues. Of course, everyone was beyond helpful!! I’m so grateful for the kindness and professionalism from everyone there!!!!

I went in for a consultation to get braces and the process was quick, easy. Dr. Nantz really listened to what was bothering me about my smile and explained how he would go about fixing it. They were able to get me in the very next week to get the braces on and have payment plans available with 0% interest. I would highly recommend them!

So thankful for this ortho doctor and team of professionals. We recently moved from Oregon to Texas. My daughter needed her braces off badly. Because of covid she had to keep her braces on longer than necssary. When I called Nantz they listened to my problem and offered a solution. They removed her braces and provided her with a retainer. Everyone is so friendly and helpful here. I recommend their services to anyone needing ortho assistance.

D S. from Austin, TX (Source: Yelp)


Throughly enjoyed working with Dr Nantz and team. There is a good balance of rules to follow for each stage of the procedure and keeping it light hearted and friendly. The scheduling team has always been great accommodating the school needs. I would have liked a better after hours calling system but I needed it very infrequently. I would bring my other child to this practice if she needs orthodontia treatment. Thank you Nantz team for a great experience.

Rene C. from Austin, TX (Source: Yelp)


My daughter has been going to Dr. Nantz for the last 2 years, and should be getting her braces off soon! Dr. Nantz is very down to earth in his approach, and it’s always an anxiety free experience for my daughter. The entire staff is super warm and inviting, incredibly professional and just wonderful to work with. And the generous rewards program they have for the kids REALLY turns them into raving fans too!

I chose to get Invisalign after meeting with Dr. Nantz and team. From the beginning to the end, of my treatment, I had the best experience. The entire team are super nice, fun and personable. I was well taken care of and looked forward to each appointment. Thanks so much, Dr. Nantz and team, for my amazing straight teeth.

Amy I. from Buda, TX (Source: Yelp)


We have had the bet experience at Dr. Nantz’s office! We went to other consultations and left feeling like they had to sell us the braces to make a “quota”. We never felt that way with Nantz. Every appointment was pleasurable and they got to know my daughter and would remember things about her from one appointment to the next. We always left there feeling so welcomed. All appointments we went to over the past 2 years, we never waited to be called back…….they are always on time! My daughter loved the Nantz Nickels program. She would earn points for good hygiene and being on time as well as earning A’s and B’s in school. She redeemed the point for iTunes gift cards as well as many other things. I would HIGHLY recommend Dr. Nantz!!!!!!

Maeli H. from Austin, TX (Source: Yelp)


My experience with the office of Dr. Nantz was a great one. I walked into a beautiful, high tech, and inviting office. There was a friendly, professional, and informative staff there to greet me. I felt comfortable with everybody I spoke to throughout the visit from the person behind the front desk to Dr. Nantz. I went to Natnz Orthodontics to have my teeth straightened. I waited too long to remove my wisdom teeth and so I have a lot of crowding going on. I’ll be doing an 18 month Invisalign treatment, seems like a long time, but I’m excited to see my smile slowly change into the beautiful smile I’ve always wanted. Hopefully I get what I want. I’ll comment on this post when 18 months has passed and let you know if Dr. Nantz is a smile artist. (:

My daughter and I always enjoy seeing Dr.Natz and his awesome staff. They are all so kind and professional. On top of that the office always has something fun going on. We recently signed up to join them for a movie appreciation day. We were referred and loved them so much from our consultation that we decided they are worth driving from North Austin. They did not make us feel pressured to use their services and when we told them we live North they were courteous to ask if we were okay with driving the distance for appointments.

Mona C. from Austin, TX (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Nantz listened to my concerns and fixed my teeth after the last orthodontist messed them up, so for that I’ll be eternally thankful. I’ve had my permanent retainer for almost a decade and never have any problems. He does quality work and his staff are the best, very welcoming and nice. The waiting room is also very nice, they always have fun giveaways/games. I wouldn’t go anywhere else, this place is the best.

Steffanie H. from Austin, TX (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Nantz and his team are awesome! I originally came in for a 2nd opinion for Invisalign. My general dentist told me that I need one for medical (not aesthetic) reasons, and I figured that if I were to get one, I’d rather get it done by an orthodontist instead of general dentist. Great, great decision! He’s in network for me and has stellar Yelp reviews, so I figured I’d try coming in since a consult is free anyways. From the beginning to the end of my appointment, everyone was so helpful, kind, patient, and genuinely happy to help me with the process. I got scheduled in the next day for a consult, and walked out of the office within an hour – imaging, x-rays, all done (none of those gummy impressions that make you gag – they use an iTero scanner)! Given that my dentist appointments generally take close to 2 hours, Nantz Ortho is pretty awesome I’d say 🙂 I’ll be starting my treatment soon. Not excited about having something in my mouth again esp. after braces treatment that failed me (dang it!), but I’m confident that I’m in good hands with Dr. Nantz. A big plus is that they’re contracted with my insurance, so the cost ends up being cheaper than having my general dentist do it – yay! All in all, I’m super glad that I went to Nantz Ortho.

Dr. Nantz and his team are amazing! After leaving the office from my first consult in Jan 2019, I knew that I had made the right decision. The customer service and welcoming vibes have made my visits worthwhile. Dr. Nantz is good and efficent with his expertise. Dr. Nantz, thank you and your team for helping me Enhance my smile!

You can’t go wrong with Nantz Orthodontics! Each and every employee is individually amazing in their own way. They’re welcoming, comforting, and efficient in the process that they have. Even through this pandemic they have done all that they can do to make sure I have a safe and pleasant experience every single time I come in

Tom S. from Austin, TX (Source: Yelp)


It’s finally over! After more than a year, my braces came off yesterday! My teeth look great and it is SO NICE to be able to eat without having to worry about “stuff” getting caught in the metal! Entire staff applauded me after removal, and I also got a nice goody bag (including some popcorn–which I have studiously avoided). I have one more visit to get my retainer (so my teeth don’t march apart again!). I’ll miss the warm smiles and happy faces and friendliness of the staff (though I won’t–admittedly–miss the braces themselves!). The idea of braces is a “one-time” idea. You don’t keep going back to the orthodontist after you are done with your treatment (unlike your regular dentist or family care practitioner, etc.). So it is basically “good-bye” to those who have been a more-than-monthly part of your life for over a year. To those of you at Nantz Orthodontics, my “good bye” is with a BIG smile (with straight lower teeth!) and BIG thanks for making the process so palatable. To anyone considering or needing braces, factor in the HUMAN side of the equation, too, and recognize that the staff at Nantz Orthodontics really care about you and won’t make braces ENJOYABLE but will make them TOLERABLE! Check them out. You’ll be glad you did–just as I am glad I did!

You could not ask for a better team to work on your chompers. Their treatment plans are thorough yet quick . The financing options are so easy I don’t know why I ever waited so long to get braces. The office is modern and they offer all the incentive programs/tools to keep you coming back along with referring your friends. Regarding the staff: Jennifer (Front Desk) will brighten up your day when greeting you. She works with my schedule when things change at the last minute. Dr. Nantz (Ortho) is straight forward and as easy to talk to as your best friend. The man has a heart of gold. Angela is an angel and so friendly to chat with. She makes wiring, bracing, and the procedure seem so easy you don’t even realize your done b/c of the fun conversations. Sarah is pleasure to work with. She makes the process painless, brief, and pleasant . Pretty sure she used to be a model as well 🙂

I went to Dr. Nantz for an invisalign transfer case in December of this year.  They were super understanding and helpful when it came to transferring my case over and dealing with billing/insurance.  Everyone in that office is absolutely awesome – personable, beyond helpful, and really pleasant to be around (shout out to Chrissie and Anna!).  Dr. Nantz takes the time to listen to your concerns and the resulting factor is a set of beauteous teeth.  I am so pleased with how everything turned out – I cannot thank them enough.  Highly recommend!

This has been the BEST clinical experience I’ve ever had in my whole entire life! I DREAD going to the dentist. Better yet, braces! I had braces on from Mexico but due to the pandemic I am no planning on returning. Embarrassed and what not, I went ahead and made an appointment for a free consultation. The amount of care and attention was amazing. I felt like I had known them for a very long time. Starting off with the front desk ladies all the way to the Orthodontist. X-rays and pictures were fast and the young lady has such a bubbly personality! The payment options are GREAT! Best pricing I had found here in Austin. I look forward to establishing my treatment here and seeing their welcoming faces again! Thanks y’all!!

Dominic Sanchez (Source: Google)


They were so great and so patient with me! Me being a new adult-having no idea how to do dental insurance stuff, one of the ladies helped me find one that discounted the braces. They were all so nice and complimenting me after I got my braces put on. They felt like family! I recommend strongly that you go.

Alice K. from Austin, TX (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Nantz and his staff is amazing. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend him to anyone. I had a complicated case and it took 7 years to correct my teeth (I knew going in that it would take about this long). I moved to a different part of the state during my Invisalign treatment, and Dr. Nantz was so accommodating to make my appointments convenient for me. Also made me an extra retainer, in case of an emergency where I wouldn’t be able to come in and have an impression made, so one could be mailed to me. He was always patient and truly took good care of my teeth, and I’m very satisfied with the outcome. Staff incredible as well. Thank you!

Tony L. from Austin, TX (Source: Yelp)


We had both of our girls treated an Dr. Nantz’s office and both were absolutely happy about their experience there. The office environment itself was very comfortable, but it’s the people there that make you feel like the calm that you need when going through something so life-changing. Everyone remembers the little details that let you know that you’re not just another number. And they personalize the treatment so well, that kids are motivated to follow through with heir commitments. I cannot say enough good things about Nantz Orthodontics.

Kristen B. from Buda, TX (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Nantz and his staff are the BEST! My oldest daughter went through a full treatment of braces with Dr. Nantz, and her teeth are beautiful now! My youngest is now in braces and faces a very long treatment. She is missing some teeth and we have A LOT of work to be done, but Dr. Nantz and his staff have been more than encouraging and always ensure her that we are going to have a beautiful smile one day soon. She loves the contests they have and the fact that she can earn reward points for good hygiene, wearing her t shirt to office visits etc. It’s a fun experience going to appointments 🙂 I highly recommend Dr. Nantz to all of my friends looking to have any orthodontic work done!

Cathy V. from Austin, TX (Source: Yelp)


My son completed Phase I last year and went back last Monday to start Phase II of braces. He didn’t want to get a full set this time around but knew it had to be done. Risha and Dr. Nantz put my son at ease and at one point, He even dozed off because he was so comfortable during the application! We are happy we found a great place to take our children: professional, friendly staff with quality service!

Professional, friendly, and clean! Had my braces done several years back and after a few years one of the bonding glue came off. They were able to fix it very quickly. Their COVID procedures are safe as they limit number of people inside, all the staff were wearing masks, and the individual patient rooms also had curtains. Highly recommend!

Dr. Nantz and his staff have been amazing throughout this orthodontic journey. From my initial consultation, which unlike many other practices is complementary, to getting my braces on, to my scheduled appointments, the experience with Dr. Nantz has been fantastic! I cannot wait to see my teeth after the process is complete …❤️

Caitlin R. from Austin, TX (Source: Yelp)


The website drew us in, speaking with the receptionist hooked us, and having experienced two visits, well, we are officially fans of Dr. Nantz and his staff. My daughter’s last visit was a day before her birthday. When we signed in, the screen displayed “happy birthday” and the staff wished her a happy birthday. They all seem to pay attention to detail. They are all so involved with the community as well. They are currently collecting items for Cause for Paws Event. I love the reminder emails, reminder text messages, and how easy Dr. Nantz’s office has made everything. “

Marcia T. from Oakton, VA (Source: Yelp)


Just yesterday my kid had his braces removed. His teeth look great but what matters also to me is that for  two years he has looked forward to his monthly appointments with these fine and professional people.  Getting braces is a big investment of time and money.  I am grateful for the skill and kind hearts of the people in this office and strongly recommend you consider getting your orthodontic care there.

The ladies in this office are absolutely amazing. They are so friendly and welcoming as well as educational. This was seriously some of the best customer service that I have ever had in my life. I decided to get braces and faced the obstacle of which dental insurance company to decide on, and there were so many things that I just didn’t know. I read that Dr. Nantz was in my network and called for just some basic info. Ms. Jennifer went completely ABOVE and beyond to help me out, practically feeding me the questions to ask and giving me her e-mail for any further questions I had for her before making my decision. (And Mind you, I was not even yet a customer of theirs at this point!) After deciding on the insurance, of course it was a no-brainer that, after reading all the great reviews and speaking with Jennifer, I would choose this office for my ortho work. And let me tell you, they did not let me down. In fact, I can’t imagine going anywhere else. Not only was Jennifer super friendly and helpful both on the phone and off the phone in person, but Ms. Anna was SUPER informative during the meeting to make sure I was aware of every little detail before deciding on traditional braces verses Invisalign. The tech was also friendly and professional while taking the x-ray pictures and did a good job answering my questions I drilled her with. But let’s go back to Anna. Wow. That’s all I can say. She was extremely knowledgeable and informative that I can’t even describe how helpful it was for someone that did not know what to expect. I was already having some anxiety about (a) being in the orthodontist office in the first place, and (b) getting braces on my teeth. But with Anna, she completely and totally reassured me that everything was fine with the way she described the process and every little detail about what I would be experiencing before, during, and after getting braces and she answered every one of my questions with professionalism and experience. She was also very nice and funny too, which helped put me at ease the moment I stepped in her office. Dr. Nantz was very nice and easy to talk to, ready for all my questions and concerns. And I had many, even though I had done my own homework. He was also specific in his observations of the x-ray pictures and recommendations. He helped to thoroughly answer all the questions that I had as well and reassured me that I wasn’t as “broken” and helpless and I thought I was with my smile and that it could not only be fixed but corrected in the rotations and spacing and that I would even be able to continue to train with a specialized mouthpiece. You can also tell in the passion and pride that everyone in this office takes in their work that they really Love what they are doing, are well-trained, educated and professional, and they want to HELP you to make the best decision for you and not for their them. I couldn’t possibly imagine going anywhere else for any dental or orthodontic needs, from beginning to end. This is the most professional, experienced and friendly orthodontic office in town and I cannot recommend them enough, genuinely.

I can’t say enough great things about Dr. Nantz and his team! Professional, funny, punctual, and exacting, everything you want in a doctor. As a dentist, I know a lot about orthodontia and I can say with absolute confidence that you will not find a better orthodontist. My daughter’s smile is gorgeous! With adolescent orthodontia there are many concerns including the development of the jaw and mid face as well as trauma to developing roots from moving the teeth to fast. All reasons for using a specialist for adolescent braces. Dr. Nantz is the best!

Amy B. from Austin, TX (Source: Yelp)


I love Dr. Nantz and his team! Having had braces as a teenager I never dreamed that I would be dealing adult orthodontic issues. However, here I am in my 30’s with Invisalign. Making an appointment was super easy. I didn’t even think I had orthodontic coverage through my dental insurance (this is what I was told at another office). Dr. Nantz’s office was able to help me understand and secure my insurance benefits. They explained exactly how it worked. My appointments are painless, quick, safe, and professional. I feel safe at my appointments even in the time of Covid. When I arrive I text to let them know that I am there. They text me back when it’s my turn to come up. I never wait in the waiting area with others. I cannot recommend Dr. Nantz enough. His team is the sweetest and most helpful.
