Dr. Stormberg and his staff are the most AMAZING people on the planet. I have been very afraid of dentists since I was eight years old. Despite taking nearly a decade to fix my cross bite. Dr. Stormberg and his staff remained committed to addressing my every need. As a result I completed my treatment successfully, and overcame my prior experiences with Dentist. I will continue to refer others forever. Simply amazing experience!!!!!! Thank You Dr. Stormberg! Signed, Truly Blessed

I just finished an 18 month invisalign program with Kurt Stormberg. The entire process was very smooth. Kurt is a very caring and professional orthodontist and his staff are equally kind and professional. The office is always clean and welcoming with ample parking and you never have to wait. I highly recommend Stormberg Orthodontics!

Dr. Stormberg helped me with braces, TWICE (second round was required, through no fault of my own).   His professionalism, honesty, patience, kindness, and understanding exceeded my expectations as he went above and beyond to help. Thank you Dr. Stormberg and your wonderful staff, SO very much !  Dr. Stormberg is amazing at what he does and I am thankful for and exceedingly happy with my smile !

Dr. Stormberg Orthodontics, is AWESOME!!! so I moved to California from Texas in January. My wife and I was looking for a Orthodontics online and we found 1 spot they were to high in price and then we went to here to Stormberg Orthodontics, they were low in cost and knew the same Orthodontics in Texas (Small World), but they were very friendly and professional. My wife’s teeth are amazing, when she first got them off, She was so happy and glowing, so thank you Dr. Stormberg. Most of the time, we get the Lady in corner next to the Tennis court, She is very nice, has a positive attitude to me and my wife. So thank you Stromberg Family for everything you have done and cannot thank you enough, I highly recommend this place to everybody who wants braces.

Both of my children go here and we all love it. Dr. Stormberg and his staff are always friendly and welcoming. We had an emergent visit and they got us in within 2 hours even though they were booked. So glad we chose Dr. Stormberg and we recommend him to all our friends and family!

Dr. Stormberg is an extremely knowledgeable orthodontist. He is kind, professional, and an expert at what he does. I had the pleasure of receiving my invisalign treatment through him and I wouldn’t have it any other way. Pricing is reasonable and they work with your budget. In house financing is offered here which is always a plus! The front desk staff is very friendly and they always work around my busy work and school schedule. All around Stormberg Orthodontics is great place! If you’re ever looking for an orthodontist do yourself a favor and see Dr. Stormberg!

I broke my permanent retainer today(Friday) after they were already closed. I thought I would have to deal with a broken retainer all weekend which would really drag. I called and left a message about it and Dr. Stormberg personally got back to me minutes later asking if I wanted to meet him at the office in half an hour for a repair. It went quick and easy, as usual with Stormberg Orthodontics! I can’t thank Dr. Stormberg enough for personally coming in on his time off and fixing me up! He always stand by his work, knows what he is doing(as well as his entire staff), and to top it off is a really nice guy. Thank you Dr. Stormberg!

High-quality experience all around. Flexible scheduling, plenty of skilled, friendly staff, very accommodating financing and excellent results overall. A bit daunting with the volume of patients, but that’s what you get when you’re San Diego Magazine’s Best Orthodontist 11 years IN A ROW! Found Dr. Stormberg through my dentist. Asked him where he would send his own child and without hesitation said, “Stormberg.”

Victoria L. from Spring Valley, CA (Source: Yelp)


No Lie, worth every hard earned dollar of mine. I’ll try and make this short and sweet… Few years ago I finally had the money to invest in myself and chose braces. Who doesn’t want a beautiful smile :). Anyways, I asked a few teacher friends who they went through for there kiddos braces and 99% of them said Stormberg. Did what your doing now and did my research, and had my free consolation. I had braces on the next day. :))) Years pass and I finally got them off. I had a smile that I was so proud to show off! . I was on cloud 9. Unfortunately, my teeth are stubborn and decided to do whatever they wanted regardless of my retainer. Now my story isn’t the norm but with all that said and done Doctor Stormberg and his team are putting braces on again at no cost to me. *Like I said before, my case isn’t the average braces case. I can’t speak for him and say yours will be free of charge if needed again. All I know is that I did ALL of what I was told to do and my teeth still shifted. If your looking for a moral, respectful, caring, high quality Orthodontics for yourself or children go into his office and find out for yourself.

Excellent in all areas!  Clean, affordable, professional, friendly, and all around terrific office.  The office staff, the working assistants, Dr. Stormberg, and everyone we came in contact with were absolutely wonderful.     We were referred there by relatives who had exceptional experience and results and we will certainly refer others.  In addition to doing a fine job with my two teens braces adventure, Dr. Stormbergs office does so much more for kids, community and charities.  Appointments were a breeze, office was immaculate, we were treated very well by professionals and the outcome has been exceptional.   Thanks !

Kimberly E. from Ramona, CA (Source: Yelp)


Just finished my treatment for Invisalign and can’t rave enough about how great Dr Stormberg and the staff was. Everyone was always so nice and cheerful! I had minor adjustment made to my teeth and Dr Stormberg was very informative and answered all my question about concerns I had. So glad I chose to come to this office and will definitely recommend to anyone looking into any orthodontic treatment.

Annika F. from Lakeside, CA (Source: Yelp)


We got referred to Dr. Stormberg’s office by our dentist, Dr. Bolam. I had never been to an orthodontist when I was growing up so it was a first for me and my daughter, she is the patient. After going to a free consultation I didn’t want to go anywhere else. I had to leave a message the first time I called, but received a prompt return call by a very kind lady so willing to help me. Then Dr. Stormberg called us the night before the appointment (which happened to be a Sunday evening) to see if we had any questions before coming in. I thought that was so nice. This place is buzzing…lots of kids getting braces. But they are prompt with the appointments that we have had. All staff has been most gracious and helpful. They have toys to play with which is good for my toddler son. They also don’t mind if you come to the back area while they work…even with my little guy. At our last appt, my middle daughter got to “assist”. Dr. Stormberg is very nice. He wants to make sure you are comfortable and if you have any questions he said “I am never too busy for patients or parents” I loved that statement. Overall it’s been a wonderful experience so far. I don’t really have a comparison as far as what other orthodontists would charge for the same service, but even though we don’t have dental insurance, I am glad that we are at Dr. Stormberg’s office because my daughter is receiving excellent care. Thank you!

Danielle P. from San Diego, CA (Source: Yelp)


Since my daughter finished her treatment, I started my braces with Dr. Stormberg and so far have had a great experience. I love his team, especially Jen! She’s my favorite assistant to see when I have appointments. Dr. Stormberg is very professional & pleasant to be around. So far I am really liking the changes I am seeing in my teeth and I can’t wait until I’m finished and can see the final result! Thanks for being awesome 🙂 I appreciate all you and your team does.

P. from Lakeside, CA (Source: Yelp)


A wonderful orthodontist with terrific staff. Everyone’s professional and you can tell they truly love working here including Dr. Stormberg! There are always plenty of assistants working and appointments available so we never have to wait. My 2 kids and l have all been patients here and were all very pleased. Dr. Stormberg goes above and beyond hosting an annual party for all of his patients and families each summer. Every month they have contests that all the patients can enter where they give away really cool stuff. At Halloween they have a candy buy back program where they give out gift cards to patients who bring in candy. One time he even sponsored my daughter $50 for a school jog-a-thon

R. C. from Dana Point, CA (Source: Yelp)


One of the BEST drs. Overall!! Appointments are always on time, all the staff is very knowledgable and knows what they are doing, appointments are right to the point, you are in and out quick! I just can’t say enough great things! I got braces when i was 32 and i am just so happy with the results. This office is truly amazing, and Dr. stormberg cares about each and every patient and knows them all by name. I highly reccommend to come here if you want a beautiful smile!!! Thank you dr. Stormberg and staff!!

Dawn M. from Lemon Grove, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Stormberg & his stellar staff took care of my son & my husband’s braces. My son wore traditional braces & before he finished 10th grade, they were off. No self confidence knocks there! Absolutely beautiful job. My husband wore invisilign braces. The process was smooth & my husband was able to “hide” his braces. Throughout both treatments, the doctor & staff were beyond wonderful. Polite, timely, accurate, accommodating, & informed. They knew my family & I’d refer anyone to Dr. Stormberg for dental care. You won’t be sorry!

Keith A. from San Diego, CA (Source: Yelp)


Had a great experience with this office.  The results were awesome and now my teeth are wonderfully straight.  What you will like is the professional level of quality in every area.  This is probably the finest business I have ever seen.  Being a former business owner and I can appreciate the dedication and devotion it takes to preform at this level.  It doesn’t get any better than this.

Kelly H. from Santee, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Stormberg and his wonderful staff are amazing! My 2 boys, Nicholas and Kyle completed orthodontic treatment at the same time and every visit was scheduled around our crazy calendars. Thank you ladies for always being so efficient, patient, and kind!Dr. Stormberg’s treatment plan was perfect and they looked forward to every visit! He is alway professional, treats everyone with respect and gets the job done! Now they have beautiful smiles and are enjoying high school. Thank you ALL for your hard work and dedication to your patients and their goals. The Hammonds

Dr. Stormberg and ALL of his staff are patient, efficient, courteous, considerate and kind. To sum it up, they are just plain AMAZING! The office is clean, cheerful and the coffee is hot. There is always something fun to participate in, be it a office contest or a wonderful “thank you” party. My entire experience was absolutely the BEST! From what I observed, this business office has all bases covered for customers as well as employees. Everyone wears a beautiful smile!!

Rebecca C. from Avalon, CA (Source: Yelp)


I just finished my orthodontic treatment with Dr. Stormberg and I could not be happier with the results or the treatment I received! I had braces for 4 years when I was younger to try and correct my open and overbite, but I was told that I would eventually need surgery since they were not able to correct the issues with orthodontia alone. After avoiding the issue for 10 years, I decided to seek treatment for my worsening lock jaw and almost constant pain. I went to several orthodontists for consultations, but Dr. Stormberg was by far the most professional, knowledgeable, and confident about my treatment plan. He and his staff prepared me (and my teeth) and got me through 2 TAD surgeries and my lower jaw orthognathic surgery without a hitch. Dr. Stormberg worked closely with my surgeon, and together they were able to give me, for the first time in my life, a pain free and fully functioning bite. I am truly grateful for Dr. Stormberg and his amazing staff. They answered all my incessant questions, were honest about my progress, and were sympathetic, patient, and understanding when I was in pain. If you want a great smile and great people to make that happen, just come here.

My oldest daughter is weeks away from having her braces removed after three years. My youngest is finishing up her first year. While Stormberg Orthodontics has provided quality and care for years for my family, it was the get well card that arrived in the mail today that triggered my review. Prior to my daughter’s knee surgery she had a routine adjustment. My daughter asked for her brackets to be checked well since she was having surgery. A week after her surgery a card arrived with handwritten well wishes and a gift card. We were blown away. Thank you.

Jennie L. from Jamul, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Stromberg and his entire staff are outstanding. Always kind, friendly, knowledgeable, and professional.The fiance office worked with our insurance and offered us a monthly payment option which was extremely helpful. We had many friends refer us to Dr. Stromberg so there was not a doubt in our mind that our family would use Stromberg Orthodontics. Our daughters’ smile is beautiful…Thank you Dr. Stromberg!

One of the most friendly and professional dental teams you will ever come across. Dr. Stormberg does beautiful work. They take the time to explain everything. They listen to your questions and concerns and don’t make you feel stupid for asking. Very accommodating for scheduling and if you have an emergency, they are right on top of it. On top of all of this, they put a lot back into the local areas (scholarships, supporting civic events, supporting high school athletics, etc.) and set a fine example of what local businesses can do as part of a community. Highly recommended if you need orthodontic work. Autism friendly and very gentle. Parking is free but can be difficult during peak hours. wheelchair accessible.

Ed K. from Santee, CA (Source: Yelp)


My 14 year old got braces from Dr. Stormberg. I was highly impressed with the friendliness and efficiency of Dr Stormberg and his staff. We never waited (unless we were early) our appointment time was our appointment time, such a refreshing departure from waiting 45 minutes after your scheduled appointment time at the doctor’s office. All of his staff members are always very friendly and courteous. Dr. Stormberg greets every kid by name, a nice, personal touch that is much appreciated. He always has a smile on. He also does wonderful things for his patients, events, pizza parties, and scholarships; awesome! I have no suggestions that might have made this experience any better; keep up the good work Dr S and staff!!

Jay M. from Lakeside, CA (Source: Yelp)


Extremely professional! I underwent invisalign braces with Stormberg Orthodontics and it was so easy.  The invisaligners are very comfortable and easy to wear.  I had standard braces as a kid and through the years my teeth had moved out of alignment, and I was hesitant to try any braces again but these were super easy.  The check-up appointments were easy to schedule and most of the time only took about ten minutes.  Dr Stormberg and all of his staff are very friendly and professional and their office is very nice with plenty of seating and modern LED lighting.  A special shout out to Daina who is really the one who made everything possible, thank you.  I would recommend Stormberg Orthodontics to everyone. #thebest

Anne I. from La Mesa, CA (Source: Yelp)


Absolutely wonderful practice and people. Orthodontia involves a significant investment of time, trust and of course money. I interviewed four orthodontists, and even briefly started treatment with another orthodontist, before we began with Dr. Stormberg two years ago. I have never once regretted or reconsidered my choice. From the front desk to the treatment room, every single staffer we have met has been caring and genuine, warm, engaging and yet professional. One of my kids has finished treatment; her teeth look fantastic. My other child has a more challenging case which Dr. Stormberg has handled with great expertise. More pluses: Easy parking, clean and pleasant office, clear discussion of billing and finances, and a sense of community (Stormberg is the choice of so many kids from College Prep Middle and Steele Canyon High School). And the coffee is excellent!

EM. T. from San Diego, CA (Source: Yelp)


Our son just finished (braces) treatment with Dr. Stormberg and it couldn’t have gone any better. From the first complimentary consultations and re-checks.. through the treatment schedule and til the very last visit (and beyond!)… this office is doing something right. The marketing, the staff efficiency, the annual customer appreciation parties, the contests and scholarships…. it’s all top notch, and planned with their target audience in mind. Was it just a coincidence that when we came for my son’s “post treatment” visit, that his 8×10 was in the “gallery of smiles”…. ? I think not…. Then a couple weeks later, that same 8×10 photo was in our mailbox. This doctor and staff understand personalized service. My husband continues with his invisalign treatment.. .so we are not done yet!

Lunetta P. from San Diego, CA (Source: Yelp)


Brought my daughter here on a recommendation through one of her school alumni. Great customer service very easy, breezy.  We’re happy we found them and we would recommend this business.  Staff including the doctor,  to staff that greet you from the time you walk in the door are very personable and friendly.

Stephanie S. from Santee, CA (Source: Yelp)


We went to Dr Stormberg for a second opinion after getting a ridiculously high quote for my daughters braces. We were referred by a friend I trust so I thought it was worth the time to check it out. We were treated well and professionally by the office staff as well as the back office staff and Dr Stormberg was very friendly and thorough. His recommendation was a bit of a different approach but the cost was almost half…. and since we didn’t have dental insurance, cost was was super important. They also offered financing or a discount if you paid all upfront which is what we did. I think it was 5% or 8% off. But honestly I can’t remember for sure. We have been seeing them now for almost 2 1/2 years and have NEVER had any problem or bad experience. The only thing that even comes close is that the t rearming has taken a bit longer than we hoped but it did not impact the cost… her teeth would just not cooperate but we are now in the home stretch and she is scheduled to get them off in 3 weeks!! I would absolutely recommend Dr Kurt and his practice.

Sarah D. from San Diego, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Stormberg is the best orthodontist ever!  He is very kind, knowledgeable, and it is very obvious that he is very passionate about his work.  I love going to his office every time my daughter and I have to get our braces checked.  The office is very neat and clean, scheduling an appointment is very easy, and everything seemed so organized and efficient.  I would like to acknowledge all the wonderful staff in the office.  Each one of them exemplifies great customer service, dedication, and competence in their work. Thank you to Jessica, Daina, Dina, and Deanne for their warm and welcoming smile upon entering the office and for the truly amazing staff Raianna, Jen, Milauni, Anna, and John.  Thank you all so much for all that you do!  I am loving my beautiful smile!!

Lisa P. from San Diego, CA (Source: Yelp)


My teeth have never looked better! Dr. Stormberg and his team came highly recommended by my dentist and now I know why! Great if you’re interested in a place that will never make you wait when you show up on time for your appointment 🙂 Very happy customer and love all of the extra little gifts they give along the way to make you feel excited about your progress and “graduation” from braces!

Erik S. from Enterprise, NV (Source: Yelp)


Very excellent orthodontist. We recently moved from San Antonio, where my daughter had gotten braces and we needed to find a new place that could continue her treatment. We were fortunate to find Dr. Stormberg. Everyone from the office staff to the nurses to Dr. Stormberg have been excellent to my daughter. A special shoutout goes to Daina in the finance office who helped coordinate benefits with my insurance company and helped make the transition very smooth.

Breanne M. from San Diego, CA (Source: Yelp)


I love this place and the entire staff at this business! I’ve been seeing dr. Stromberg for about a year-and-a-half and I’m finally graduated from my Invisalign. If you have any teeth corrections, I would definitely go see him! He’s gentle, kind, and they are very accommodating to schedule! Thank you so much for fixing my smile!

Jared H. from Lakeside, CA (Source: Yelp)


I am on my third kid at Dr Kurt Stormberg’a office and couldn’t be any happier! The entire staff has been nothing but friendly, courtesy, kind and very professional. I have not had a single issue in all my dealings with them. I have been to the office 100’s of times and met everyone there and have nothing but positive things to say. I recommend them to anyone and everyone from all ages!!

Jennifer H. from San Diego, CA (Source: Yelp)


Thank you Dr. Stormberg for doing a wonderful job on Mallory’s teeth and getting them nice and straight just in time for the first day of school! This was her goal and your staff helped her achieve it. We loved our experience with the office from the friendly staff to the always on-time appointments to the helpful tips during and after braces. Highly recommend!

I grew up in Omaha, Nebraska, where I was one of ten children. My dad is a children's dentist, and my older brother is a general dentist, both in Omaha. Of course, I'm a huge Nebraska Cornhusker fan! My hobbies include golf, running and most of all, spending time with my wonderful wife and college graduate daughter. I always wanted to serve my country, so after graduating from Creighton University School of Dentistry, I joined the United States Navy as a dental officer. Serving in the Navy was a great experience, especially my two years at sea on board the USS Germantown. While I was stationed at Camp Pendleton, completing my General Practice Residency, I knew San Diego was the place I wanted to call home. I returned to the University of Nebraska and completed my orthodontic training in 1998. With my wife and baby daughter in tow, I was able to find a great practice in La Mesa with Dr. Dennis McKee in 1998.

My other passion is organized dentistry where I have served in many leadership positions including past president of the Pacific Society of Orthodontists, past President of the San Diego County Dental Society and the Board of Director for a variety of orthodontic organizations. I have always felt it is very important to give back to my profession which has given me such a wonderful career. I chose to specialize in orthodontics because I enjoy the challenges orthodontic treatment presents, and I feel that by bringing smiles to my patients, I can influence their lives in a positive way. I enjoy talking with my patients and their families, learning what is happening in their lives. I have three generations of families in treatment, and a number of patients turned employees, that have continued to enrich my life.
