We have completed two rounds of braces at Ahrens, one for me as an adult and one for my daughter. Both experiences were exemplary! Drs. Doug and Gerry Ahrens as well as the rest of the staff are very personable and are very good at what they do. It is also nice to know that you will be seen on time and that the appointment will be completed in an efficient manner. Thank you!

Dr. Gerry and the entire staff are very pleasant to deal with. It's VERY obvious that they care for their patients and love what they do. I'm 36 and always had a straight smile, but I'm doing braces for TMJ problems and the results so far have been excellent. I highly recommend Ahren's Orthodontics for anyone contemplating orthodontic treatment.

I started my orthodontic experience at the late age of 69. Today after 2 years my braces were removed. I couldn’t be more pleased. I’ve been smiling all day. Both Dr Doug and Dr Jerry are tops in my book. They are always so thorough, kind and pleasant to be around. The entire staff are so friendly and efficient. If you are thinking about having work done, this is definitely the place!!

I recently finished my ortho treatment at Ahrens Orthodontics. I work in a dentist office myself and with that being said, I had high expectations for my end results. I went into ortho primarily for function purposes. I am very excited with how my teeth look and feel! Both Gerry and Doug Ahrens are terrific orthodontist and I would highly recommend their office.
