Our family is new to the area, so it’s always difficult to find the right medical team for the family. We are so grateful we went to Joiner... Orthodontics. The team is taking all appropriate covid considerations. The treatment coordinator, Victoria, is fabulous and made my daughter laugh and feel comfortable. Dr. Dan was great and talked to my daughter directly about her treatment plan and explained with photos and videos. I really cannot have asked for a better experience. Thank you so much for easing the anxiety of my daughter. We look forward to working with you.read more

We consulted with Dr. Joiner 13 years ago after a nightmare experience with another orthodontist. Our oldest daughter was kind of traumatized about... having anything back in her mouth, but the moment she met everyone of Dr. Joiners team, she couldn’t wait to go back.He explained everything to her so that she felt part of the process and in control of what was happening. Through the years, and 2 other kids with braces, we continue to put our orthodontist needs in his care. He goes beyond making it about their teeth, he makes it about their health, their future and the entire family!After we went from a 2 person income to one person for a time, they worked with us on finances so we could still afford his care. His entire team is incredible!read more

My daughter needed braces. We had attended consultations at a few different local offices. We ended up having some "not so great" experiences. I had... a friend recommend Dr Joiner. We were totally impressed and really comfortable right away. This is by far the best Orthodontic practice in Santa Cruz County. Dr. Joiner and his staff are amazing. They really go 110%. The facilities are beautiful, clean and inviting. I highly recommend them to anyone, at any age, who needs orthodontic treatment.read more

Highly recommend taking your child to see Dr.Joiner. My 8 year old daughter said the office environment is fun & she cannot wait to get her first... ortho treatment. We would give more than 5 stars! Victoria made us feel safe (took temperature, provided hand sanitizers, and ensured everything gets sanitized between patients), made us laugh with her funny jokes, and good with kids and adults! The staff are amazing!read more
