Dr Thompson is amazing and I would highly recommend him to anyone who needs braces no matter what your age! From day one when I first walked into the office I have had nothing but great things to say about him and his incredible staff! They’re all very professional, personable and friendly! I love walking into their office and they immediately call you by your name before you even sign in! I got my braces on in my mid 30’s and was hesitant at first because of my age, but instantly felt like I was being taken care of and that my age didn’t play a factor in it at all! I even had to have a pallet widener which was a challenge, but Dr T and his staff made sure I felt comfortable and confident in my braces!! After my two year treatment of braces, I received clear retainers and I love them!! My nieces and nephews had amazing experiences here as well with their braces and I have several friends (of all ages) who have loved going there also! They have great incentive programs that make it fun for everyone! You earn “beach bucks” for every time you wear your cool (free) T-Shirt that they give you to each appointment and they can be redeemed for cool gift cards! They even provide an awesome Summer Party for you and your family!! Seriously, they go above and beyond! THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU Dr T and your amazing staff for being SO good to me for over two years and for making me feel more confident about myself and my amazing new smile!! Straight teeth truly do rule!!

We have been going to Dr T for almost 10 years! He has done 3 of my girls braces and we are not only very pleased with the outcome but couldn’t be more grateful for all the amazing work he has done with them. My girls all LOVE him (and his staff) and he has made the experience for them a very good one, unlike the nightmare I had growing up with my braces! I wouldn’t take my kids anywhere else!

We love Thompson orthodontics! Quick appointments, friendly staff, nice incentives that keep my kids caring for their braces. Can’t beat the price and appreciated the help brainstorming the best options for our daughter who was missing certain teeth and required a little extra care. Would highly recommend them.

This office is awesome!! Dr. Thompson and his staff are amazing. They are so organized and professional. I have never waited than 10 minutes for my appointment. The assistants are great! They treat me like I am their best friend. I have recommended Thompson Ortho to everyone I know. They made my smile beautiful in only 15 months.

Dr Thompson is excellent and very friendly. He was able to fix my son’s teeth without pulling any out. The previous orthodontist said the only way to fix his teeth was pulling some out, that’s when we decided to look for a second opinion and a friend recommended Dr. Thompson, and again, excellent professional and human being. I highly recommend him.

Had my braces done here, and what an amazing staff! Dr Thompson is very good at remembering each of his patients, and treats them like they’re the only ones in the room. His staff are very respectful and easy to communicate with. I had my braces on for 29 months, but partially because I had a hard time with the rubber bands. If you do what you’re told consistently, everything goes much better. Would highly recommend to anyone needing orthodontic work.

Dr. Thompson and his staff are terrific. I am an adult who currently is receiving treatment. He has taken great care of my orthodontic needs, and his methods truly achieve visible results. I was initially referred here by my prior orthodontist who retired, and I am so happy that Dr. Thompson has been nothing short of wonderful to work with. I also see many happy children coming in and leaving when I am there for treatment. How often do you see that at an orthodontist?! That tells you right there that he and his staff treat patients well, and when my son needs treatment when he gets older I will be taking him here as well. You are treated like family here, and he takes very good care of you. I cannot recommend him highly enough, and you will be glad that you chose this orthodontist for you and your family

If you’re looking for the best orthodontist here in Utah County, Dr T is your man! The guy is beyond exceptional. He will go above and beyond for you so you can have the perfect smile you deserve. It is not so much about the money for him, it’s more about how satisfied you are as a valued customer which makes him so unique. He has an amazing team working with him and he will give you the confidence you’re looking for. He offers a clean treatment environment and we can’t forget about the additional perks you get with being his client!!!

We have loved the experience at Thompson Orthodontics!! We are finishing our second child’s treatment here, we have loved the staff and the careful attention Dr T pays to each patient and smile!! I would whole heartedly recommend them for beautiful healthy smiles!! You can tell a Dr T smile, there is a huge difference between straight teeth and teeth shaped to enhance the face. Love Dr T and his staff!!

Dr. Thompson is the absolute best! I chose Dr. Thompson for my son’s orthodontist because I heard how careful and particular he is about doing excellent work. My husband is a dentist and now refers only to Dr. Thompson. Dr. Thompson’s office is such a fun place to be! They make it a blast to get braces! And the results are exceptional. We’re so happy with the service, the treatment, and the outcome!

I LOVE THOMPSON!!!! This is by far the best Orthodontist in all of UTAH!!! All the people are so nice and really care about me and my teeth, the doctor is SUPER friendly and really know his stuff!! The whole office is the prettiest place every! They have the coolest decorations and the best traditions, like how you get a Dole Whip the day you get your braces on and off! Or how you can earn prizes from Beach Bucks! My smile is SOOOOO much better now, and it’s all due to Thompson Orthodontics! 11 out of 10 would recommend!!

After doing research and going to different ortho for quotes. I finally came down to Dr. Thompson. My first visit there was awesome! He was helpful and cares for his patient. He was never pushy but very helpful. His staffs are always so bright and nice. It’s a great atmosphere. Both my husband and I had previous ortho work done on us before and it doesn’t compare to this place! This place is awesome! I highly recommend !

I strongly advise you to give them a try.. Free estimate and flexible payment schedule!!! Couldn’t have done anyone else for our treatment.. Thanks guys you are the best

We needed to get my son braces so his tooth could come in–he had crowding on the top. We have been so happy with Thompson Orthodontics! They were the most friendly, the most knowledgeable, and the most thorough out of all the offices we checked. Plus, their office atmosphere is amazing! My kids would stay there all day every day if I let them–the decor is welcoming, there are toys, movies, popcorn, drinks, cookies, and really friendly staff. And Dr. T has done a great job with my son’s teeth–not only did his tooth come in correctly, but he has a great looking smile now! And the Beach Bucks and extra contests have also scored my son $75 and an iPad Mini, as well as several fun parties with other Thompson Orthodontics customers. And they also pay his school for every A! How can you go wrong with Thompson Orthodontics–they’re the best business ever, and I’d recommend them to everyone I know.

The atmosphere of the office is very inviting and friendly. My daughter just finished treatment and I couldn’t be happier. The office is efficient and runs smoothly. Dr. Thompson is professional, yet makes you feel like a friend. We thoroughly enjoyed our experience!

Emily K. from Hillcrest, Orem, UT (Source: Yelp)


I loved Thompson orthodontics. And my results were everything I wanted! The staff there is amazing and was always so kind to me and quick to help me each time I was in need of them or had a question. The environment there is so fun and really made them stand out from other offices. Dr Thompson and his associate who also worked on me, always answered my questions clearly and helped me understand the process each time I was there. They were always quick to see me and made sure each time I came that I was liking the progress I was seeing and happy with the results. GO THERE. You will have the best experience.

Doctor Thompson has seriously the best customer service I have ever seen. The receptionists are always kind and they make you feel welcome. The dental assistants are all nice and professional as well. The other dentists who work there are also very nice and Doctor Thompson is like the nicest guy on earth with his patients. Even the lady who goes over the type of payment is so caring. I recommend this office to everyone. My three kids are patients of them and their teeth look amazing now. Thank you.

Really great staff, so funny and kind, full of banter etc. Always willing to talk about their life story, does their job quick and efficiently. You will not regret a trip through the braces at the incredible Thompson Orthodontics. Be aware that they are remodeling currently however, so there are not as many fun decorations. I also love how this staff is a group of individuals who are all friends, always talking and gossiping, it’s really fun. Where’s Erica going after work? Is Morgan moving? This office also has Netflix (a popular choice) as well as Mario Kart in the front. A theater can also be found in the office with popcorn a plenty though both have been out of use for a while. They do so many fun things, including Beach Bucks, pool parties, etc. This office is also unique for its beach theme and it’s surfer trademark “Straight Teeth Rule!” If you are currently trying to choose an orthodontist, try Thompson.

Lindsey S. from Henderson, NV (Source: Yelp)


I love Thompson Orthodontics! My husband and I have both had adult braces here ( my husband did Invisalign) and we are so happy with our beautiful smiles. The staff is warm and inviting and Dr. T is always so willing to answer my questions– and he’s funny too! He always makes the appointment fun. When my kids are old enough I will definitely be bringing them to Thompson Orthodontics!

Stephanie D. from Eagle Mountain, UT (Source: Yelp)


I love this office! It’s decorated so cute, and the staff is very friendly and professional. The doctor is great and really knows what he’s doing! My daughters teeth are looking great so far, and I’m excited to see how good they look next month when she gets them off. My daughter doesn’t like going to the dentist, but loves going to see Thompson. thanks for being so great and making my daughters teeth look beautiful!

I am so happy with my treatment! I have waited so long for straight teeth and Thompson Orthodontics helped me soooo much! Payments were affordable and I was always treated so amazingly! Dr.Thompson, Dr.Maxfield, and Dr.Jorgenson, and Laura are wonderful! I would definitely recommend Thompson Orthodontics to everyone!

As an adult, I wanted to get braces on and off over night. In reality, nobody can make that happen. But with Dr. Thompson, I knew that my teeth were in the right hands. How did I know this? With extensive research. I went to different orthodontic offices examining things from the ceiling to the carpet. As a dental assistant and now dental hygiene student, I knew exactly what to look for in a good office and I found it with Thompson Orthodontics. His efficient and careful method changed my smile for the good. I am very pleased to have had the honor of meeting Dr. Thompson and his staff. I HIGHLY recommend all to come to Thompson Orthodontics for top quality orthodontic care.

These guys are so awesome. They have all the new technology/equipment, Dr. Thompson is so nice, and the assistants are always willing to help out with whatever I need. Go here for your braces. (P.S. Renee is awesome)

Dr. T and his staff are great! Everyone is nice and help me and my anxious child feel calm. Dr. T and his colleagues are knowledgeable and use the latest technology and techniques for orthodontic treatments. The office atmosphere is fun and friendly- the surfing theme, movie room, video games and fresh baked cookies all add a personal touch. We all look forward to our appointments!

Dr. Thompson and his team are the very best! Everyone is kind and friendly and it immediately puts you at ease. Throughout the process, I mostly had Bethany helping me out and she is so awesome- fast, efficient, and super friendly. Dr. Thompson corrected my insane cross bite and I still cannot believe how amazing my smile looks. Completely worth it to work with Thompson Ortho. Thank you SO much!!

I was a patient here for about a year of treatment. This is, unfortunately, my second round of braces (first time was not here though), but they were way better than my first round of braces. Accommodating, clear, and very reasonable in their prices. The atmosphere was very welcoming and made me feel at ease whenever I came in. Whenever I had a walk in, they were able to see me within five minutes. I’ve never waited to be seen longer than ten minutes. Absolutely phenomenal coming from an orthodontist. Highly recommended in every regard.

I went through my second set of braces with Thompson Orthodontics. (My first was with another orthodontist.) The experience I had at Thompson was by far more personable, comfortable, and I they did more to help me long-term. While the previous orthodontist informed me that I’d need corrective surgery for my bite, Dr. Thompson was able to correct the issue by having me where rubber bands throughout my treatment, saving me the cost and uncomfortable experience of having the corrective surgery the first orthodontist had informed me would be unavoidable. In addition to Dr. Thompson’s excellent, personal care, the rest of the staff that I worked with in his office were kind and helpful at every turn. I strongly recommend them

Thompson Orthodontics is my favorite place in the world to go. Whenever I go, everyone is always smiling and every single one of his helpers is super nice with everyone and it takes a lot of patients to be with everyone. They are always making sure you are happy. They even have cool activities and they have prizes in their office you can win and they have cool retainer cases and cool colors for your braces! I love that every time I go they asks me and my family how they are and how my summer has been going and they tell me about their lives too. I have many friends there and Dr. T is one of them. I hope that they will always be HAPPY

All my boys went to Thompson Orthodontics for their braces so we’ve been going there for over ten years! It’s been a wonderful experience! Everyone is so friendly, knowledgeable and helpful! They really go out of their way to make the whole process a great experience! Now that my youngest just got his braces off, I’m probably going to go get invisalign for myself! I can’t stay away! They’re just great! I would highly recommend Dr. Thompson and his entire staff!

Kaiya Allred (Source: Google)


My braces were removed today! This is round two for me (first set was from another orthodontist) and I couldn’t not be more happy with my results! I am going to miss everyone in the office and the free cookies! (THE BEST) Dr. T is great! He listened to all of my concerns through out the process and adjusted hardware accordingly. I highly recommend Thompson Orthodontics to anyone looking to walk away with confidence and a spectacular smile!

Amber Boyer Ferguson (Source: Facebook)


So grateful we found Thompson Orthodontics. My 10 year old needed severe orthodontic intervention. I new I couldn’t just trust anyone with such a hard case. When we sat down with Dr T and went over the X-rays his knowledge was definitely unbeatable. I knew we were in good hands. He confidence and personable approach put all my fears at ease. We love Thompson Orthodontics and everyone is truly treated like family here!

Throughout my teenage years and especially through high school I really wanted straight teeth but couldn’t afford it. I got into my early 20s and finally decided to just go for it and my parents had recommended Thompson. I definitely didn’t want braces in my 20s so I got invisalign. Thompson is affordable and such a great environment. I should’ve been done with my invisalign in 18 months but I wasn’t satisfied after that amount of time so Thompson was so patient with me and allowed me to do extra trays until I was absolutely happy with how my smile looked. That is so important to me and I’m so grateful for how they took care of me through the long process! Highly recommend!

Dr. Thompson and his staff are remarkable! We absolutely love them and the fun atmosphere in the office! Getting braces could be dreadful, but instead they make it something to look forward to, my kids love their visits!

Katie C. from Orem, UT (Source: Yelp)


Despite what another reviewer said, Dr Thompson gives you a free set of retainers the day you get braces off and then covers any damage for the first year with no cost. After that they are only $50 ea to replace (most Ortho’s charge $200+!) Unless the person is being careless, retainers should easily last 5 or more years with zero “wear and tear”. He is extremely good with patients and cares a lot about their long term care. (Hence the cheap retainers) I would 1000% recommend going to Thompson Orthodontics!
