What our patients think

“Initially, Katie and I met with several different orthodontists who came highly recommended by friends and even our own dentist. Although you were all similarly priced, the means to the end were different: You stated that Katie would conclude treatment in 18 months, and no one else even came close to you on that time frame – they were all almost twice as long, or longer. One of the other orthodontists also proposed removing several teeth and using palate expanders. You assured me that, in Katie’s case, these measures were not necessary for perfect correction. And, now we know you were right on both counts. Thank you so much, Dr. Tom, for perfecting Katie’s teeth. We can’t get her to stop smiling!”

“I can’t thank Dr. Tom and his team enough for everything they’ve done for me. I came to your office as an insecure, awkward, painfully sky kid who never smiled because of her giant overbite. You guys played such a huge part in helping me get past that and become the person I am today, and certainly to have the confident smile I have today.”
Richlan D.


“I can’t say “Thank You” enough for the kindness and care you showed to me these past two years during my time in braces. You were always so welcoming and ready to answer questions. I’ll be quick to “brag” on you to anyone looking for a top-notch ortho team!”
Katie C.


“I was recommended to Dr. Tom’s office by a co-worker and I knew from the moment I walked in the door it was the best thing for my sons. The staff and Dr. Tom are so friendly and they treated us like family.”
Lynn M.


“Recent discussions with my dentist encouraged me to pursue orthodontics. Having had outstanding experiences with my 3 daughters earlier, there was no option in my mind except to contact Dr. Tom. I wondered what it would be like for a 63 year old man to have orthodontics, but when I visited the office, the staff put me completely at ease. Surprisingly, the entire procedure was virtually painless. I hope others will not allow their age to deter them from getting help from Dr. Tom’s office.”

“We are very pleased and happy to have all the professional services of Dr. Tom Atkinson and his friendly group. We are originally form France and are so happy we decided on Dr. Tom and the lovely group of professionals.”
Thomas N.


“Many thanks to you and your staff for your generosity in checking our daughter’s braces while I was temporarily relocated to work in our Greenville office following hurricane Maria in Puerto Rico. My sister suggested that we contact you as her kids have had braces with you, and we couldn’t have been happier with the service.”

  • review rating 5  I’ve been going to Dr. Tom for a little over a year now & my husband also started treatment with him & if my son needs braces he will also go to Dr. Tom! Everyone in the office is nice & caring. They take their time to make sure everything is right & you’re getting the best mouth for your money. 😁 I still have about a year to go in braces & cant believe my changes already & stokes to see my finish.

  • review rating 5  Dr. Tom is great. He took great care of my son‘s teeth when he was in high school roughly 18 years ago. Our son never had any issues then or since, and his smile has been seen on several TV shows and in a few movies since then. Dr. Tom also took care of my lower teeth 16 years ago, and just last month I returned for a slight adjustment needed as a result of one contact on my retainer coming off. They still had my file, and he and his staff remembered me and my son. They were as friendly, like family, like it was years ago. Dr. Tom and his staff know Orthodontics, are professional, friendly, relatable, and care about all their patients whether they are six or 60. So glad my dentist recommended Dr. Tom Atkinson and Big Mouth Orthodontics to our family.
