I started Invisalign with Dr. Skanchy a few months ago, and I have been really impressed with the results I’ve seen already! Dr. Skanchy is a preferred provider for Invisalign, so I know I made the right choice for my orthodontist. He explains everything about treatment very thoroughly and makes sure all my questions are answered before I leave my appointment. I love his office! It has a very comfortable atmosphere, and his staff is always so friendly! If you’re looking for a great orthodonist, Dr. Skanchy is it!

My experience with Dr. Tony Skanchy and his staff has been a dream! In my consultation Dr. Skanchy was very thorough and took the time to answer all my questions. We decided to go the Invisalign route for me, which in comparison to other orthodontics I had visited, was less expensive and my preference. (So win/win!) You can tell right off the bat that Dr. Skanchy really cares about his clients and will go above and beyond to make them love their smile. He was willing to go through a couple scans of new sets of Invisalign for me which I truly appreciated because it was able to close all my gaps. He also does a great job preparing you for what to expect in the process, and is very kind and understanding when you slack on your end lol! Invisalign is a lot of responsibility since you need to do the upkeep and chewing to stay on track with your liners. Invisalign isn’t for everyone, but I highly recommend going through Dr. Skanchy if you decide to do it. I live in Lehi and it was SO worth going out to Riverton to him and his staff each appointment. Emily and the other office ladies are so sweet, they really add to your experience, along with all the dental assistants – nothing but top notch service! The facilities are beautiful, very well planned out and kid friendly! 10 stars if I could! Thank you Dr. Skanchy and Staff!!

I had a great experience at south hills orthodontics. I was able to get an appointment the same day and Dr. Skanchy was very kind, knowledgeable, and caring. He was attentive, took the time needed and is a great clinician. His office staff was extremely warm and welcoming and respectful. I would absolutely recommend Dr. Skanchy to others for orthodontic needs.

I had my braces about 17 years ago through a different orthodontist. A few weeks ago my retainer broke. I went to Dr. Skanchy for a replacement. His office staff is very friendly, they got me in right away. Dr Skanchy is very personable and clearly an expert in his profession. if you’re looking for an orthodontist, I’d highly recommend choosing here.

Love these guys They were knowledgeable, always quick, and always helped work with me when I was struggling. They totally care about their patients and do a wonderful job. I thought it was very affordable and they were upfront and forthcoming about the treatment plan. Thank you all!

I recently completed Invisalign at South Hills Orthodontics. Dr Skanchy was so nice and professional and I am thrilled with the results! His entire office staff was always kind and helpful. I never waited longer than just a few short minutes to be seated in a dental chair. Every visit I made to the office was always a pleasant experience! I began my Invisalign treatment at the age of 60 and thought my overcrowded lower teeth would be too old and stubborn to move into the right position. In just over a year they are now perfectly aligned! I have new confidence in my smile!

Dr. Skanchy and staff were so awesome to work with! We just finished Phase 1 of my sons orthodontic work and we couldn’t be more happy. The office is beautiful, the staff is so kind and professional and Dr. Skanchy really goes the extra mile to make sure his patients and family are happy! We love South Hills and will recommend them to anyone!

Justin R. from Riverton, UT (Source: Yelp)


My treatment with Dr. Skanchy has been great experience. He and his staff are prompt, knowledgeable, and easy to work with, and I can tell they are great with the kids. With his office being right next to South Hills Middle School, it is going to be very convenient for me to take my kids when they need their braces. His prices are also at, or below, the other orthodontists in the area.

Before selecting South Hills Orthodontics I searched intently for an orthodontist who not only performed the highest quality work, but who had an office environment where I would feel comfortable as an adult. I also wanted to be able to bring my kids to the same office in a few years and know they would have a great experience. I’m happy to say that South Hills Orthodontics is the place! Dr. Skanchy really cares about his patients and does amazing work. The whole staff has been so friendly, and the office is beautiful, clean, and organized. I’m now nearing the end of my treatment and I’m loving my new smile. I’m looking forward to bringing my kids here. I know they will be in the best of hands!

Dr. Skanchy is thorough, accomplished, great at what he does and very friendly too. His staff is kind and helpful. Even my kiddos who aren’t patients like going there because the front is clean and kid friendly with games/movies etc. highly recommend! My daughter just got her braces and expander off and her mouth/teeth look nice and corrected. Thank you south hills!!

This office has been absolutely wonderful to work with. A friend referred us to Dr. Skanchy after hearing my story about another office. Switching was Best decision I made! The staff are so kind and inviting. We didn’t mind driving over an hour to make our appointments. Dr Skanchy and assistants always made us feel like family. Plus my daughter’s teeth look fantastic and were her braces were off in less time than we anticipated. I would give more than 5 Stars if I could.

I have absolutely LOVE Dr. Skanchy and his whole office! Being a dental hygienist I am very picky about my mouth. As soon as I walked into South Hills Orthodontics I felt comfortable! Dr. Skanchy has done great work with my teeth and I actually look forward to my appointments! They offer appointment times that work great with my schedule and have a fun front room for my kids to play in while I am having my appointment. I have been so happy with my results and I recommend Dr. Skanchy to everyone I can!

We cannot say enough good things about South Hills. From the moment you walk in till you leave, you are treated like family. The staff is very friendly and welcoming. The office is clean and bright. My daughter loved spinning the prize wheel at the end of every visit. Dr. Skanchy is the best to work with. He is very knowledgeable and did a fantastic job. When it comes to your teeth I wanted one of the best and I truly believe that Dr. Skanchy is one of the best. Not to mention their price was better than we expected. They were great to work with as far as scheduling appointments and such. We will continue to come back with our other children and will always recommend South Hills to our friends. Thank you South Hill!!!

Dr. Skanchy and his staff are excellent from beginning to end, every single appointment. They are always super friendly and personable. At each appointment they thoroughly explain the treatment plan needed for that time and answer any questions I ever had. My daughter just got her braces off and her smile is absolutely beautiful! I highly recommend them!

Dr. Skanchy and his staff went above and beyond to help me straighten and whiten my teeth! I am elated to have a beautiful, white, straight, gap-free smile! I would recommend this office to anyone who is looking to improve their smile and align their teeth! They also have all the latest technology, like the 3D imaging tooth scanner, instead of doing impressions for Invisalign! I am so thankful to have found Dr. Skanchy. He is so thorough, kind, knowledgeable, and really listened to all my concerns about my teeth and corrected them! Thank you for helping me achieve my orthodontic goals! Now I have a smile I can love and enjoy for rest of my life!!!

When my existing retainer broke, Dr. Skanchy was easy to get an appointment with and made me a new retainer at a very reasonable price. His office is beautiful, and the staff were knowledgeable and very welcoming. Dr. Skanchy is efficient, thorough, and very approachable. I loved my experience and I wouldn’t go anywhere else for my orthodontic needs!

Heidi E. from San Francisco, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Skanchy and his team are amazing. I came all the way from San Diego, California to get my children’s braces done. My sister told me about Dr. Skanchy and I went and checked his facility out for myself. The Staff is knowledgeable, friendly and always willing to help. The facility is clean as a whistle. They have a front waiting area with things to do for the kids as well. I highly recommend Dr. Skanchy and his team!

Dr. Skanchy and his staff at South Hills Orthodontics give high quality care and have great integrity! I was caught in an interesting situation between many transitions including insurance switching and changes in staff. They worked with me to figure out exactly where things went wrong and made things right! Now I feel great and have a beautiful smile to show for it!

This place ROCKS! If you’re looking for a new orthodontist you can stop because Doctor Skanchy and his entire team are where you need to go. Everything was perfect during my treatment and everyone was always so nice. I was quoted a year for my Invisalign and it only took 5 months. Simply amazing and I love my new smile! Thanks all!

Braxton D. from Dublin, CA (Source: Yelp)


Hands down the best experience with Dr. Skanchy. I’ve been to multiple orthodontists and Dr. Skanchy is the best orthodontist I’ve ever had. He was very thorough throughout the whole appointment and asked multiple times how things felt to make sure it all felt comfortable. Not only was Dr. Skanchy great, his staff are the nicest people, easy going, great people to work with. Scheduling with his office is simple and if something comes up they are easy to reschedule with. I highly recommend South Hills Orthodontics to everyone.

Tonie D. from Bluffdale, Salt Lake City, UT (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Skanchy did my clear braces and I love the way they look! Seriously feel like I’m on vacation in his gorgeous office. His whole staff is so sweet and friendly and Dr. Skanchy is one of the nicest guys on the planet and really knows his stuff! He is the only person I trust to do mine and my kids’ braces. He explains everything thoroughly and takes his time to really answer your questions. My daughter had so much fun waiting for me in his office, playing video games and watching movies in the little theater. We decided to do braces for her at South Hills Orthodontics as well because we have been so impressed. She just got an expander put in and is so excited! Dr. Skanchy and his staff have been so sweet and have made getting braces so fun for her! When the kids love their doctor you know you’ve picked a good one.

Dr. Skanchy is the best orthodontist out there. He cares about your smile just as much as you do, if not more. He gives the full explanation of everything and makes sure you know what you’re doing. He has made my smile the best out there with my Invisalign treatment. The whole staff there is very friendly and treat you like family. They all care about your well being and want to make sure you have the best time while you’re there!!

South Hills Orthodontics is amazing! Our experience with them could not have been any better. Their staff is super friendly and knowledgeable. Dr. Skanchy is awesome! He is so personable and friendly and really takes the time to listen and explain to you what is going on every phase of the process. I would HIGHLY recommend him to anyone.

I can not say enough about Dr. Scanchy and his staff. My stepson was in town from St. George when he had an issue with his braces that needed immediate attention. They got him right in and took the time to call his regular orthodontist to figure out the best plan of action. They fixed the problem and didn’t even charge us which just showed us that my son’s well being was his primary concern not the monetary compensation . The entire staff was so accommodating and knowledgeable and went above and beyond to make it a pleasant experience. I was so impressed that I made my daughter an appointment for a consultation.

I have known Dr. Skanchy both personally and professionally for several years. As an orthodontist myself, I can attest to the incredible quality of his treatment. He will work tirelessly to provide you with a top notch smile that is equal parts beautiful and functional. He is truly dedicated to everything and everyone around him. Dr. Skanchy is a wonderful orthodontist, a true family man, a leader in our field, and an absolute pleasure to be around. Please do yourself a favor and set up an appointment with South Hills Orthodontics! When it comes to you and your kids smile, you can certainly trust Dr. Skanchy.

When it was time for my oldest to get braces I went to a couple of different consultations before deciding to go with Dr. Skanchy. He answered all of my questions and was very patient with my son who also had some questions. The staff is very nice and welcoming. They were flexible with me as I over booked my consultation with another appointment. They were very accommodating to let me come back and finish my son’s consultation when it was my fault for scheduling wrong. We have been their patient for a couple of months now and they continue to always go above and beyond.

Our son got his braces off today and we couldn’t be happier with our experience at South Hills! Dr. Skanchy and his staff have always been very professional and super helpful! We highly recommend SHO!

I had a very good experience at South Hills Orthodontics! The office staff was courteous and helpful, and the assistants were very competent. When I went in for appointments, I was seen promptly. Dr. Skanchy was pleasant and professional. He clearly explained my treatment plan and the procedures he performed. When I had concerns, I was able to see him the same day. He was able to straighten my teeth in the amount of time that he estimated at my first appointment. I’m very happy with my new smile!

Michael H. from Herriman, UT (Source: Yelp)


Awesome staff. Cool facility. They listened to my concerns and answered all my questions. They helped me feel comfortable and made it easy for me to choose them above anyone else. Excellent skilled orthodontist who sincerely cares about helping you. Dr Tony Skanchy is someone you can trust and feel confident with. I would highly recommend him!!


As an orthodontic specialist, I am dedicated to providing the highest quality care in a professional and welcoming environment. I am grateful to be a part of a profession that allows me to develop life-long friendships with my patients and their families. I find great fulfillment in knowing that I'm making a difference by helping people feel better about their appearance and themselves through orthodontic treatment. We serve the Herriman, Riverton, Bluffdale, Draper, and South Jordan areas. We provide orthodontic treatment for both kids and adults. Our services include Invisalign clear aligners, clear braces (ceramic braces), traditional metal braces, Damon braces, and many other services that you would expect from an orthodontic specialist. Call today to schedule a complimentary evaluation! Following dental school, I continued my education to specialize in the field of orthodontics and dentofacial orthopedics. I was one of four residents selected to attend the University of Tennessee’s 3-year specialty program. There I received my certificate of specialty in orthodontics and dentofacial orthopedics as well as a master’s degree in dental science. While attending school, my research on dental age estimation techniques was published in the International Journal of Forensic Science and Pathology. Following my orthodontic training, I achieved board certification through the American Board of Orthodontics. A board-certified orthodontist is an orthodontist who has demonstrated the judgement, knowledge, and skills required to provide the highest level of patient care by successfully completing an oral examination and written examination. Achieving board certification is the last step in a long and intensive educational experience to ultimately provide excellent patient care. Only 30 percent of orthodontists have successfully completed the board certification process. I regularly attend national and local meetings hosted by the American Association of Orthodontists and other regional constituents and associations. This allows me to stay up to date on the constantly changing and advancing field of orthodontics and make sure my patients are receiving the best available treatment.
