Check out what some of our happy patients are saying about us:

Sarah G. from Lancaster, CA (Source: Yelp)


My mom took me to 3 different orthodontists that were recommended by my dentist, my mom talked to me about how we can stop and listen to our feelings and what our feelings and thoughts are telling us. She said that just like when I am lost I should stop and look for a person that makes me feel good inside and then ask them for help, she said I should do the same as we visit the orthodontists too. My mom told me that I could help decide where I went but that I had to be honest in talking about the way I felt with each office not just picking the won that had the coolest prizes. the first guy we went too had an AWESOME office and I really wanted to go there, but my mom said we needed to check out the other 3 offices as well. the second one we went to was Dr. Theurer and my Mom loved his office, I thought his staff and him were SUPER nice. After we left the third office my mom asked me how I felt, I told her there was just something about the last one that I didn’t like and she agreed that it was not where she wanted me to go. I told her I loved the first one because of the toys and prizes but that it didn’t feel right either. Dr. Theurer’s office just felt right to me I felt like he was a really nice guy and I would pick him out of a crowd for help if I were lost. I was glad that my mom talked to me about how to trust my thoughts and feelings because I know we made the right decision. My mom said Dr. Theurer was her first pick as well. Thank you Dr. Theurer we love your office and have LOVED the treatment we have received.

I have 2 of my boys in treatment with Dr. Theurer and so far I and very pleased. He went over their procedures extensively and made sure to include and ask my boys if they had any questions or concerns. His assistants were very friendly and also very informative. I’ve never left with any questions unanswered. There’s a small game room, tablets and kid appropriate movies to entertain the children while they wait. Also, parents can help themselves to coffee or tea and relax in a massage chair while they wait. What more could you ask for? If you are looking for an orthodontist then I highly recommend you come and check out Dr. Theurer.

Dr. Theurer and his staff are wonderful- Professional, on time (You never wait!!) and they can ALWAYS see you if your brackets break!!!! From the first consultation all the way through to removal, they were friendly and amazing !!!! We highly recommend Theurer Orthodontics!!!

I was referr d to Dr. Theurer from my military Facebook friends, along with other referrals to different orthodontists. I’m glad I did my own research and found that Dr. Theurer was exactly what I was looking for in an orthodontist. Very caring, understanding, explains everything, answers all of my questions. My oldest son finished his orthodontics at the end of last year and now it’s my youngest sons turn. I am please with the results my son for. He smiles now with confidence. I can’t wait for my youngest to be done. I would recommend Dr. Theurer to anyone looking for advice or to do orthodontic treatment. His staff are all accommodating and nice and sweet girls. Love their office!

I love my teeth now!!…Dr Theurer did a phenomenal job with the Invisilines. I was not aware how bad the teeth looked til the Invisilines were recommended and after using them nearly a year, I am a happy camper!! I and all those that have known me can tell the big difference. I can smile with confidence! My experience is excellent, especially when the staff is friendly and they know you by name. Thanks so much Dr. and staff!

Dr Theurer did my braces almost fifteen years ago, when my husband said he wanted to get braces I knew just where to take him! The team did a great job answering questions and explaining what to expect. Dr Theurer was super friendly and made us feel comfortable the entire time. The office staff were all wonderful and we didn’t wait very long to be seen. The office has been upgraded tremendously since I was a patient so long ago, and they give you all types of free goodies when you get your braces on (like an electric toothbrush and a welcome kit). They were even kind enough to send my husband a Starbucks gift card and a note in the mail congratulating him on his new braces! It’s the little things that really impressed me about this office, and I will be happy to take my son here too when it’s time for his braces!

Sharay D. from Lancaster, CA (Source: Yelp)


So I started going here because my husband has beeb going here since he was a little boy. Staff are very friendly and knowledgeable. I got braces put back on and yes it was pricey but atleast here the fixed retainer are part of the deal too. Here they are all about making the patient happy.

Christine E. from Lancaster, CA (Source: Yelp)


We love Dr. Theurer! He is so nice. He is a true professional.  He explains everything very thoroughly,  my kids have always been very comfortable with him. He is always happy and in a good mood. The entire staff is very helpful and welcoming.  We are always greeted and tended to immediately with a smile. The ladies at the front desk are always helpful. The office is bright, clean and fun! We would definitely recommend this office! It’s the BEST!!

Jennifer W. from Lancaster, CA (Source: Yelp)


My 10 year old daughter just went and got her braces put on. It was a fabulous experience from the moment we walked into the door until we left. We went in for a consultation and left with braces! The reception staff were super helpful and friendly, the finance advisor was friendly and quick, the lady (I can’t believe I forgot her name already) was very kind and informative. Dr. Theurer was so kind and has truly formed a great atmosphere with his staff and facility.

Che J. from Palmdale, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Theurer (pronounced “Tire”) and his staff did an amazing job with my daughter’s braces. The staff is extremely friendly, knowledgeable and fun! They have wonderful treats for the family… like tickets to the JetHawks game (um, in a suite), and taking Dr. Theurer on vacation-contest, good grades incentives and fun games to play while waiting. Easy to get in for “emergency” appointments and from what I’ve heard of other dentist office, his work is excellent!

I drive 45 mins to this office for a reason, Theurer Orthodontics is the best orthodontic office I have ever come across. The staff along with Dr. Theurer are just amazing. He makes the experience a fun and a very affordable one. The waiting room has a very comfortable atmosphere – never have I felt like I was at a boring Dr’s office there, they have a kids game room, refreshments, iPads for use while waiting, massage chairs, and multiple TV’s playing the best movies everytime we have to go there. I had a horrible experience with braces as a kid and never wanted that for my children, I only wish Theurer Orthodontics was open when I was younger. Dr Theurer has put braces on two of my children and the third one will be getting them very soon from him! Our family is even stalling our move out of state until after our third child is done with her braces because I want her to go to Dr Thuerer!

Rikki M. from Morrison, CO (Source: Yelp)


Dr Theurer is great and so is his staff. They’ve always been really helpful (and great at what they do). The only drawback is their office hours. I feel like it can be more difficult than getting an audience with the pope sometimes, especially if you want to drop by after work to grab rubber bands or wax. They close earlier than you get out of work, and open after you have to be at work. Overall, I would still choose his office!

Almost 15 years later, I still get compliments on my smile. This is all thanks to Dr. Theurer, quite possibly the world’s perfect orthodontist! I remember getting my braces on in 8th grade, then having them removed the summer before junior year of high school. Those were three years of braces that most kids probably would have hated, but I didn’t mind at all. This is because a great orthodontist reassures you that you don’t look like a nerd (though I’m sure I totally did) and makes you feel that “braces freedom day” is just around the corner (even if it’s still a few years away). Not sure how to explain this, but he even LOOKS like a great orthodontist. All these years later, I still remember his great staff and the welcoming aura of his office. After all the patients he’s helped, he probably doesn’t remember me, but I remember him. A great smile is truly the gift that keeps on giving and I will never be able to thank him enough. I just thought of him all of a sudden during a trip to visit my folks in Lancaster. Saw that a few billboards have popped up throughout the city promoting his business. At the very least, if you’re considering orthodontia for yourself or your child, please consider giving his office a try. In 15 years, you’ll still be thanking me.

Best place for orthodontic work in the high desert.  My permanent retainer separated from two of my upper teeth, and since my orthodontist was in Idaho, I had to find someone to repair it for me.  After calling around, in which Dr. Snow’s office claimed a cost of $298.00, Dr.  Theurer’s office offered to do it for a way better price.  I was thrilled and went right away in which they saw me in a moments notice.  They’re so nice at this place and extremely helpful.  Cheryl (I hope I spelt it right) was awesome.  She was so kind, and she did an amazing job re-bonding my retainer.  Over-all best experience with orthodontic work/repair yet.  Thanks again to the staff who helped me.

We are now on the third member of our family getting braces and we have stayed with Dr. Theurer for all of them because he is great and so is his staff. Very professional and I love that we don’t have to wait to be seen (That is a huge plus!). It is worth the drive from the other side of the valley. I highly recommend them!

Gabriel R. from Lancaster, CA (Source: Yelp)


Review Message: My family and I have been coming to Theurer orthodontics for many years and today I received my second phase of braces. All of the staff is extremely helpful and nice I am glad that I chose this orthodontics. The second phase took just about an hour but felt shorter because the whole time there was some type of conversation going on. EXTREMELY recommend this place!!!

Secunda R. from Los Angeles, CA (Source: Yelp)


It doesn’t get any better than Dr. Theurer’s (pronounced Dr. Tire) office!  Everyone is knowledgeable and kind. They take the time to answer all of your questions. The doctor gives you the confidence to know that he has your best interests at heart. I can’t say enough positive things about this office :0)

Anna C. from Lancaster, CA (Source: Yelp)


I went to Dr. Theurer for my braces several years ago, and now my kids are going there. The staff are always very friendly, helpful, and welcoming, and Dr. Theurer himself is great! He has lots of goodies for the kids,  which keeps them happy, and it’s always easy to get in when you need something fixed or bands changed. I always have and always will recommend this practice to anyone looking for an orthodontist.

Dan Hauptman (Source: Google)


My sisters went to Dr. Theuer years ago and was wonderful. So much so, that my sons started seeing Dr. Theuer. He is the best. The whole office takes care of their patients. If you are thinking of investing in orthodontics, this is the place to go!

Jean J. from Palmdale, CA (Source: Yelp)


My oldest son was Dr. Theurer”s first patient (about 33 yrs ago) and he had such a great, positive experience we took our second son there.  Even knowing we paid cash, Dr. Theuer said he didn’t need braces and we really admired his honesty so of course when the grandkids came along they all have become patients of what we call “the Theuer treatment”. Every kid is treated with respect and always greeted with friendliness!  The office is always clean and has a great atmosphere.  Our kids teeth all look great and we really would not go anywhere else!

Tanya H. from Lancaster, CA (Source: Yelp)


My daughter is almost a year into her treatment with Dr.Theurer. He is awesome as well as his staff. Karen always sees her and is wonderful. My husband and several friends and their children have had braces with him in the past. The office is always clean. Great atmosphere. Best of all is that my daughter’s teeth are looking amazing. I recommend this office to everyone.

I have always been really happy with them, my oldest step son went to Western dental. Worse experience ever. My youngest step son we took here, and have had the best treatment plan for him, my oldest daughter is on her 2nd round of braces and our last daughter will get her braces here. The staff is so nice and helpful, and Micheal is amazing!!! Thank you guys!!!!

To tell you how good Dr. Theurer is, is to say this: I went to Dr. Theurer when I was a teen and now my son is the second generation to go to him and his service is still great! The staff are very professional and friendly. If you have any questions about the process or dental work they are not afraid to answer and are very reassuring! Love, love, love them!

Christy Parsons (Source: Google)


Dr. Theurer really helped me out with my TMJ issues. With the mouth guard I purchased the headaches, broken fillings, and ringing in my ears has gone away. He has also helped out my sonas he struggles with his teeth not growing in properly. Dr. Theurer made a plan for him and he helped to ease my son’s fears of having his teeth worked on. The staff here is great and I would recommend Dr. Theurer to anyone.

The staff and Micheal have been amazing. When a wire break, no issues you can come right in. Thank you guys for being amazing. We have one more child that will get braces done here!!!!

Dr. Theurer and his staff have been fantastic! Always fast and friendly! And big plus for them traveling to Tehachapi once a month too! My son has had his braces on for a few months and there is already a huge difference!! I will always recommend Dr. Theurer! Thanks, Rhonda Smith

Elizabeth R. from Manhattan, KS (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Theurer is amazing at what he does. While I was having a horrible experience with braces at Dr. Snow’s office, both my mom and my sister had gotten their braces on and off before I had finished my stint with Dr. Snow. Their teeth looked amazing and mine still lacked a lot. So then I went over to Dr. Theurer so he could fix what Dr. Snow never did. It was my senior year of high school and I wanted to get my braces off before graduation and they did their magic and made it possible. I went to my graduation rehearsal, visited the Dr’s office, and made it back to my graduation with time to spare, all with a brand new smile! I would HIGHLY recommend Dr. Theurer to anyone who is interested in improving their smile!!

Carla H. from Lancaster, CA (Source: Yelp)


If you’ve gotta do orthodonture, this is a great choice. The consultation was free and no pressure. With no insurance, I needed to wait a year and make payments. They were accommodating and friendly. There’s no judgement with broken wires and are always kind. True story. The waiting room is full of entertainment from a stack of game-loaded iPads, to massage chair to video games. “Unfortunately” they don’t ever seem to run behind so there’s no time to play with all this stuff. State-of-the-art orthodonture requires visits only every 10 weeks. So that reduces schedule impositions. I recommend.

Maddie P. from Lancaster, CA (Source: Yelp)


I truly cannot say enough wonderful things about the staff at Dr. Theurer’s office! This is the second time over the years I have been in to have a broken retainer fixed and received the best service. I now live out of town but the girls up front got me in on a last minute trip to Lancaster, no problem. Everyone in the office is so friendly, accommodating and punctual! Not only did they offer to take two sets of impressions and help fix the gap that had been created in my teeth, but they shipped the new sets directly to me! Lacey, a Lab Tech even gave me a courtesy phone call and also sent a personalized note with my new retainers to make sure I knew what to expect. So thoughtful! I highly recommend Dr. Theurer’s office for any orthodontia work!

Sherry R. from Honolulu, HI (Source: Yelp)


Both my girls go to Dr Theurer, and our experience with him and his staff had just been wonderful!  I’m so pleased in how easy it is to get a last minute appointment to fix wires, brackets; very accommodating!  Oh, we also love all the promotional items that Dr Theurer has.

Both my kids did their ortho at Dr. Theurer’s . His staff is very kid friendly and efficient. you are always greeted with a smile. I’ve never had issues getting in to be seen even when my kids break a bracket and I need in unexpectedly. wait times before Appointments are very short. I have recommended many friends and all of the friends I have recommended were glad they did! Prices are very comparable! I would never go anywhere else!

Shannon Hartwig (Source: Facebook)


Best orthodontist in the AV! He will do everything he can to make sure you are happy! Recommend him to everyone! Both my sisters and I have been patients of his and he has always gone above and beyond to make sure we are happy! He also goes above and beyond when it comes to supporting our community and the kids who work hard all summer to raise animals to show and sell at the AV fair! Thank you Dr. Theurer!

If you need Braces or any Orthodontic work We highly recommend Theurer Orthodonic, after a visit to our family dentist she stated that our eight year old son would need braces. she referred us to an Orthodontic, however after consulting with him I was not very happy with the treatment and the Payment plan that was being offered to us. a few days later I spoke to a friend who said try Theurer orthodontics! she gave me their number and we went in and met with Dr. Theurer that same day. the staff was very friendly and seemed to care for my sons’ needs. during our consultation with Dr.Theuerer he made my son feel very comfortable. explained the treatment, answered all of our questions he made a Fan out of us. Two years later were still big fans of Dr.Theurer and his Friendly staff. My son had his braces removed a month and a half ago his smile looks fantastic. Thank you Dr. Theurer and staff!


Welcome to Theurer Orthodontics, the most technologically advanced orthodontic practice in our area. We provide state-of-the-art orthodontic care in a comfortable and inviting environment. Dr. Theurer and our team recognize that every patient has different needs, and we pride ourselves on the personalized service we deliver to each person who walks through our doors. It is such a privilege to see how an incredible smile changes people’s feelings about themselves and how their lives change as opportunities are opened to them. Knowing that in some small way I was a part of that makes my job truly rewarding. Although my formal dental education is complete, I attend more than 50 hours of continuing education every year. The courses I take enable me to stay current with the latest developments in orthodontic care, to ensure our patients always get the most up-to-date methods of treating their orthodontic needs. Those who seek orthodontic care are concerned about themselves, both in their appearance and the health of their teeth. No matter their age, all our patients are young at heart and have an enthusiasm for life that I share. It makes people feel so much better about themselves when they have an incredible smile. It truly allows them to fulfill their dreams through the power of their smile! I love serving the people of the Lancaster and Tehachapi communities! In my practice, we are sponsors of every community activity and school team that approaches us. We have been doing this for more than 20 years. Our patients tell us our office is the second happiest place on earth, next to Disneyland! In my practice, we have great music and a game room for all ages. We provide a fun, happy, upbeat place to just hang out! The office team consists of incredible people who are exceptionally skilled in their responsibilities. The staff has more than 179 years of combined orthodontic experience, ranging from five to 32 years. They work with people exceptionally well, from healthy, happy patients to ones with health issues or special needs. Our team is exceptionally understanding and empathetic, and they are just kind, good people. They love to have fun! I was raised in northern Utah, but most of my adult life has been in California. For more than 20 years, I have called Lancaster my home. I am married to my wonderful wife, and we have two sons and a daughter. Our kids are all grown, with the youngest in college. My wife and I don’t quite have an “empty nest” yet, because our house is shared by our golden retriever! In my spare time, I enjoy doing anything that is outdoorsy, including hiking, biking, golf, hanging out in the sun, scuba diving, snow skiing, snowboarding, and surfing! I’m also an avid reader and a couch potato when it comes to professional sports.
