Get a Great Smile

They were patient & kind to my 11 yr old that had braces put on today. They also explained everything to us in detail!


If I could I would give them 6 stars! I was there for 1st time with my 7year old daughter and let me tell you! What a wonderful staff and doctors! Very friendly and professional! Before our appointment they showed us the whole facility. They are fantastic! I will definitely be back with when need it and I would definitely recommend them to all my family and friends!


Knowledgeable, caring staff � they make having braces look like so much fun! They are upbeat and encouraging. They have raffles, games, freebies, and a point system your child can use to purchase items


Hurley and Volk did an exceptional job giving each of my daughters a beautiful, and straight, smile! The entire office staff is knowledgeable and friendly. The in-office financing option made paying for 2 sets of braces very manageable.


My son went there and we loved the whole team. When it was time for my daughter to get braces, we of course went there. To our surprise, she got her braces off today (we thought it would be next month). Her smile is perfect! Thank you to everyone there for their dedication to their patients and the community. My daughters girl scout troop stopped by today and the office was so wonderful to the girls. They bought 2 cases of cookies! The whole place is wonderful, from the atmosphere to their commitment to the community. I would highly recommend getting your braces from Hurley & Volk!
