Christopher got his braces off yesterday after over 2 years! Dr. Halvorsen and his staff provided outstanding service and support throughout the entire time. It was actually a pleasure to go into the office if you can believe that! I especially appreciated the patience, humor and friendliness they showed to Christopher. Dr. Halvorsen always, always took the time Chris needed, as well as taking time to explain everything about the process and possible options to me, from the very beginning and during the ensuing years. If you are looking for an orthodontist, look no further. -Pamela B
THANK YOU TO DR. HALVORSEN AND HIS ENTIRE STAFF. YOU ARE SIMPLY THE BEST!!! - Stacey S
This is Mackenzie's Dad and I will absolutely recommend your practice to anyone I can. You and your staff have been great to work with and Mackenzie's smile looks wonderful. We have two more kids, one of whom will definitely need braces, and I wouldn't consider going anywhere else. Thank you again for your fantastic work with Mackenzie!
Not only is Dr. Halvorsen wonderful, but his whole staff is, too. Filling out paperwork and figuring out payments are actually enjoyable tasks when you're working with warm and funny people who seem to love thier jobs. -Jenny S
My daughter just had her braces off and I am a little sad that we won't be going there as often. This was the best experience I have ever had as a parent and my daughter loved Dr. Halvorsen and all the staff. It always felt like you were showing up at an old friend's house or a relative. Everyone was so friendly and they honestly made one of the biggest things parents have to worry about very easy and stress free. It was just an all around great experience. They are so friendly and do things for the kids all the time. They are involved with the community and causes and they constantly have some sort of contest or raffle going on where the kids can win great stuff! I would recommend Dr. Halvorsen and his staff to anyone that needs braces. They are the best! They are amazing! We truly love them all! Debbie and Kelly...you guys are so awesome! You have always been so friendly and made me laugh so hard in person and on the phone! Thank you for everything. -Lisa E
Absolutely Agree!!...My daughter recently had her braces off and we feel the same way...Dr. Halvorsen and his staff are the BEST!!!...my other daughter will be getting her braces there next year. -Alisa C
Thank you to Dr. Mark Halvorsen and your whole office staff for a great experience. Easy, friendly and great patient care! Hope his new dazzling smile doesn't blind any golfers out there on spring break! - Danielle K
Thank you to everyone at Easton Braces. Sharon's teeth look amazing and we couldn't be happier. Actually, all three of the kids' teeth look beautiful and we owe it all to you guys. Such a great orthodontist. Such a great staff. THANK YOU AGAIN!!! -Lisa H
Thank you for taking such great care of Abby and making coming to your office such a pleasant experience. -Karen S
Thank you to all at the Halvorsen practice. For the kindness, compassion, and professionalism shown to Corey and to our family during his treatment. You are all GREAT! -Rose B
I would highly recommend Mark Halvorsen DMD!!! I went to a different DMD for my 7 year old and my experience was awful!!! I left feeling totally overwhelmed and frustrated. I saw Dr. Halvorsen and he was magnificent!! He explained everything and was fabulous with my daughters!! MY stress has been lifted!! THANK YOU!!!! -Jill K.
Love the gentle and friendly folks at Easton Braces! -Jenica L.
[We've moved, and] We're SO missing Mark and the Easton Braces team. You guys are great and we could only hope to find an orthodontic practice that meets the standards you've set! -Julie-Lynn W.
Dr. Halvorsen and the staff at his office are without question the kindest and friendliest people I have ever had the pleasure to work with. They took what could have been a difficult time for my daughter and turned it into an easy and pleasurable experience. Debbie is awesome at what she does. Dr. Halvorsen and his assistants were all caring and kind, and definitely have great senses of humor. They listened closely to everything my daughter told them about her treatment, what was going well and what was causing her discomfort, and they managed to get her through the different stages with ease. They make the entire experience as painless as possible both for their patients and the parents.
If you have to go through the experience of orthodontics, I promise there is no better place to be. We had previously gone to a different orthodontist at the recommendation of our family dentist. At that office, we felt like only a number. When it was time to move my daughter's treatment to the next level we decided to try Dr. Halvorsen. It was one of the best decisions we could have made. My daughter and I look forward to each visit, and as her treatment is winding down we are kind of sad that we won't be visiting as much. I can't thank Dr. Halvorsen, Debbie, Kelly, Sue, Carolyn, Lauren, Doreen, and Gail enough for everything they have done for us. -Steve C.
As much as I hate having to wear braces, thank you Dr. Halvorsen (and his amazing assistant!) for making my teeth straight and perfect! I have to be honest though, the Xbox in the game room seals the deal… -Ryan M.
Dr. Halvorsen and his staff are the best! I have two sons in braces. The younger one just got his braces off and has a beautiful smile! Dr. Halvorsen, Debbie, and everyone else are friendly and welcoming. I will miss them once we're done with braces! -Karen W.
Well, your team has done it again! I must say working with Mark and your entire team has been a wonderful experience for Jamie and our entire family! Selecting an orthodontist is not an easy task as it's overwhelming to look for the "right" ortho who will meet all of personal and financial needs. I, like other families, did my homework and took the natural course of asking my personal network of friends in Easton the million $$$ question: "Whom did you take your kids to for braces AND why?" Mark Halvorsen's practice was the #1 response and we were thrilled with our choice from day one. Mark's practice extended our family the flexibility which is HUGE these days with the kid's schedules, a very warm welcome and personal touches at the end we have a beautiful BRACE-LESS SMILE!! I would highly recommend Mark's practice and applaud the "gals" who make it happen every day, as you ALWAYS had your smiles on! -Jackie G
As an adult I crawled back to my old orthodontist office and found the new owner Mark Halvorsen! I was beyond happy with the results and would refer anyone to him :) I'm sure I'll be seeing him in a few years with my daughters....did he think he could get rid of me that easily? -Christine M.
There's nowhere else we'd go. -Jessica D.
Dr. Halvorsen was so gentle and patient considering my limitations. I love how Invisalign is transforming my smile! -Dawn A.
It is very important to trust your orthodontist and I feel very confident with Dr. Halvorsen and the staff. Debbie and Kelly are ALWAYS friendly and very professional. They are very helpful whenever we have called with any questions, as well as very knowledgeable. We even had an emergency situation where my young son accidently knocked my daughters tooth out with a golf club and Debbie and Dr. Halvorsen waited, after 6pm on Friday night, for us to drive up from the Cape with our daughter. Dr. Halvorsen was able to save my daughter's tooth and her teeth look absolutely beautiful!! I would highly recommend the office to family and friends! -Kristen R.
Thank you very much for being probably the most pleasant and easy office staff to have contact with! You guys are great!! -Sue M
I look forward to appointments as the office is always prompt, efficient, friendly, and accommodating. And CLEAN. Dr. Halvorsen and his staff are positive, engaging, encouraging, and take time to educate patient and family. We will miss everyone but know the practice will always welcome my children back and encourage wearing retainers. No other place is as committed to excellence. -Cynthia W
You guys are so amazing in so many ways. -Kelly E
Thank you Dr. Halvorsen and everyone else in the Easton Braces Office. Deborah Lyons, Kelly, Carolyn and Gail, for the AMAZING job you did with Rachel! The entire process from day one consultation all the way through to yesterday when she got her BRACES OFF has been an absolute pleasure!! You and your entire staff are truly the BEST!!! I have been and will continue to recommend you to everyone I know (and don't know for that matter). We will miss you all!!! XOXOX --Carolyn H
You guys all came through and the results were amazing. We appreciate you so much! Thank you for everything. --Hailey C
Thank you Dr. Halvorsen and the entire amazing orthodontic staff! Never could we have imagined such beautiful teeth! Thank you again and again for giving Brooke the infinite confidence of a dazzling smile. --Lisa C
Thanks to Easton Braces I can finally enjoy my smile! Dr. Halvorsen is phenomenal; he knows exactly what he's doing and took great care of me as a patient. Trust me when I say you can place 100% of your confidence in him! I never dreaded going to an appointment because he made the process run so smoothly. Also, the environment here is extremely comfortable and inviting, I loved it! Every staff member makes it their job to accommodate you, especially the lovely Debbie at the front desk! She made my experience so much fun. If you're looking for an orthodontist office, this IS your place! Thanks to Easton Braces I've gained a confidence that no one can every take from me! Thanks so much guys! --Sephora H
