Who says braces can’t be fun! My 14 year old son just finished his treatment and we are thrilled. From the beginning all the way until the end we had an excellent experience. My son and I never felt embarrassed or nervous to go to each 10 minute adjustment. In the beginning, I worried about being reprimanded for improper brushing or improper rubber band usage. I have heard from other moms about their experiences with their doctors. We never had to worry. Any corrections were always done gently and in a positive manner. It really felt that this was a project we were all in together. At the end Dr. Dougherty was as excited as my son & I were to have the braces removed. Everyone in the office (and there were many staff) was always very friendly and eager to help with scheduling the next appointment. The cost was also affordable and easily managed by a low monthly payment through automatic withdrawal. If you want a painless braces experience as well as a few laughs (Doctor has

I am overwhelmed by how beautiful their work turned out. Dr. Dougherty and his superb staff are at the top of their profession and truly care about their patients. I had a fairly complicated mouth with both functional and cosmetic problems. Dr. Dougherty methodically, expertly and patiently solved them all. I can't believe how great my smile has become. If you need this work done, take my advice and call them. I highly recommend Dougherty Orthodontics.

Wendy Knutson – Feb 26, 2020
Both of our children were treated by Dr. Dougherty over the course of several years. His use of current technology and extensive knowledge inspired confidence. More importantly, he patiently explained his approach and answered questions. Most memorably for us, he met us in his office on a Sunday afternoon to help save our child's four front teeth after being hit in the mouth with a baseball. A couple years later, the teeth are intact and the roots have not died which we credit entirely to Dr. Dougherty's responsiveness and care. Forever grateful and pleased with our choice of orthodontist. Also, his staff is professional, responsive, and well trained.

Durbin Family in Burbank, CA – May 31, 2019
Dr.Doughterty is an expert and master at his profession. However his lack of patience with parents and answering questions thoroughly is awful. He knows he’s good at what he does and gets easily agitated if a parent asks him anything about the treatment plan. That being said if you don’t mind keeping your opinion to yourself and can just trust him blindly, he’s excellent and a leader in his field.
