What People are Saying

From making the appointment over the phone for one of our daughter to walking out the door with both our daughters starting treatment, the staff was & is absolutely outstanding! We were treated with such kindness & respect, the moral of this office is wonderful. Thank you for making this such a fun & enjoyable experience for us.. 😊
I just have to say this is the best place in town! We drive a little farther to come here. They are easy when you have to reschedule. They work with you and don’t rip you off. The staff is amazing with everyone. The doctors are honest. I just can’t say enough good things. Great job to all of them 👏🏼👏🏼👏🏼
My daughter got her braces on today and she was extremely nervous. The team at Bridgetower was AMAZING!! They made sure they talked her through everything and took breaks when she was getting upset and needed a few minutes to calm down. They were so patient with her and as a mother I truly appreciate that. They made her feel special by celebrating her braces day and made the process so much easier on her. Hands down the best care you can get for your kids. Highly, highly recommend.
Orthodontics at BridgeTower has got to be, hands down, the greatest experience when it comes to braces. The whole entire staff was nothing but smiles and very warm hearted. They were also so welcoming know how to make you feel at home. I don’t think I had felt more comfortable in a medical setting. Dr Payne, Dr. Curtis what an amazing practice you guys have. You can tell your staff love what they do and love where they work. I would highly recommend Orthodontics at BridgeTower for anyone interested, you won’t regret it!
We've had 2 kids at Bridgetower and appreciate their kindness, friendliness and expertise. We always leave the appointments informed and confident in taking care of the kids teeth. It is quite a drive but worth it when you find well educated staff. My son says "thank you for taking care of my teeth"
this is reyna and when i was younger i didn’t have the chances to get braces but my mom told me about this place about a year ago and i got my son into it and it has helped him so much smile because when he was younger he never wanted to smile because his teeth and now he smiles everyday and cheryl allegood has been so much help for me because i didn’t understand none of it now i do but if i suggested a place this would be it.
Here we are again! 10 years ago, my oldest 2 girls were blessed by the treatment of Dr. Payne and his incredible staff. This past week my youngest and myself began our braces journey. We are super excited to be back because we are confident in the expertise of Dr. Payne and his staff. I am confident that we will end up with excellent results at the end of our journey and I KNOW we will have a good time along the way.This office makes the journey an enjoyable one with lots of fun things along the way. My oldest two had fun through their journey and my youngest and I are jumping right in there and playing along with all the fun events that they offer.Pic- My youngest daughter and her brother were not too sure 10 years ago when they tagged along for their big sister’s visit, but we are there now and she is totally ok and excited to go through this herself.Highly recommend this orthodontist!!!
Both my kids have been seeing Dr. Payne for the past 5 years and every visit has always been a pleasant experience. My kids love the game room, which makes it easier for them to go. His staff is always patient and kind during their braces process and I know we are in fabulous hands. Plus my son and Dr. Payne LOVE to chat about Legos!! Best Ortho in the Treasure Valley IMO!!
I had a great experience in my consultation. Amy was great at explaining everything to us and was very nice and patient. Dr. Payne was very supportive and encouraging when giving the results of the consultation and overall I had the perfect experience.Update: I just finished my treatment today and received my retainer after Invisalign. The process was great, Dr Payne was very patient and considerate the entire way through. He made sure to ask me how I felt my teeth were before scanning for retainers and even though it took a while for my teeth to settle into place, he was always willing to spend more time to make my teeth feel and look how I wanted. Dr Payne and the staff were all amazing and I had a great experience through my teeth process. Thank you for everything!
I am glad that I chose Orthodontics at BridgeTower for my orthodontic treatment! Dr. Payne, Dr. Curtis, and their staff are very friendly and took time to listen to my questions and concerns and provide answers.Whenever I called or emailed the office, the front desk staff was always very friendly, helpful, and responsive (which is somewhat rare these days). When I went in for my regular appointments I felt like the staff was genuinely happy to see me there. They have a friendly, comfortable atmosphere in their office which compliments the great orthodontic services they provide.There are many good things I could write about my experience with Orthodontics at Bridgetower; however, to be brief I will only say that I am extremely pleased with the results of my orthodontic treatment, the pricing was fair, and in addition to providing high-quality orthodontic treatment services, the staff (including front desk staff, assistants, and orthodontists) all care about and provide the highest quality orthodontic treatment and customer service for their clients. I really appreciate all the staff here, and I would recommend them to friends and family.
I never thought I would say this about orthodontics but I love this office! My son just got his braces on today and they were so quick to get us back and his braces were on in a flash. They were super organized and efficient and the staff is so kind. Everyone is smiling and you can tell they work together really well. I can’t leave out the game room and hot cocoa…best place for orthodontics, I highly recommend!
I went in for an estimate for braces, I got to say they are the friendliest and most caring staff. I felt super comfortable to say my opinion/treatment option. I love that they don't sugar coat anything -straight forward. I began my treatment plan today, shout out to Dr Payne, Dr Curtis and staff for their amazing effort and care. I'm super excited and look forward to my journey with you all!!
We love this office! We checked out several orthodontists and my daughter begged to go to this one. The staff and doctors are very kind, they have several incentives that get the kids excited about and involved in their own dental care, and my other children love the arcade in the waiting room! We're very happy we went with this practice.
I was recently involved in a free health clinic called Love Heals where local healthcare providers are able to donate their time and skills to help serve their community. I was involved with the dental department and was able to observe Dr Payne was absolutely amazing. This clinic provided cleanings, fillings and extractions. When I heard he was an orthodontist here to help I was surprised. Then when I saw him get in there and treat his patients I was blown away. Hands down the most impressive orthodontist I’ve ever met. He was so willing to help in any way he could. The was a purely volunteer event, and folks that come to these types of free clinics are one of a kind in my book. They come because they care. They come because they can help. They come because they are good people. I’m grateful to have met him and know that if you choose him to be your orthodontist, you have chosen someone with compassion and care at the center of his heart. Thank Doc for helping out.
This is the place to go! The front office staff has been a pleasure to work with. They are professional and easy to communicate with. They are always willing to help out and always smiling too. The assistants/hygienists are a pleasure as well. They explain every step of a process to make their patients feel comfortable and safe. Extremely nice and great too interact with. Could not ask for better Drs., both Dr. Payne and Dr. Curtis are extremely well mannered, always positive, well dressed, and easy to communicate with. They make them selves available for any additional questions and although extremely busy, they give each patient their full attention when working with them. Any additional staff such as the finance team is not to be left out of such a great team to interact with. I'm glad to have chosen Orthodontics at Bridgetower for both my children's needs. Thank you!
What a wonderful happy place this is! It was our first visit, and I was at first overwhelmed by the size and amount of people there. However, despite being very busy, it was like a family reunion with happy friendly faces everywhere, starting with the receptionists, the patients, the Doctors and Assistants - literally everyone was friendly and happy.They explained everything clearly and kindly every step of the way. We are so excited to now be part of this amazing “family”.They have contests, an arcade room, complete brushing station and more. Most importantly knowledge and honest doctors and staff.
We came to Bridgetower for a second opinion. We liked this staff and office so well that we signed up for services that day. We've been super happy with their efficient and friendly staff. I feel like the prices are reasonable and my children enjoy coming here. They even have free arcade games for siblings to play while they wait.
My family has been very happy with Orthodontics at BridgeTower. The entire staff is always very warm and welcoming. I have not had a single rude or frustrating encounter. I love feeling like my entire family of four kids is welcome and can enjoy the game room, not just the one getting work done. They also get us in fast and the work is usually done very quickly. I would highly recommend!
I have been taking my kids to Dr. Payne for 8 years now. My 3rd child just got his braces on. Dr. Payne and Dr. Curtis as well as their staff are amazing, friendly, fun, patient and kind. Their office works with you regarding payment of Orthodontics because they understand that while you want to give your kiddo those perfect teeth, you cannot always afford to pay up front for those braces. They are worth the 45 minute drive for me as they put my kids at ease. Child #3 they saw for the last 2 years until the time was right for him to have his braces put on. They did this without every charging us because they just understand! They reward your child (or you lol) for maintaining your dental hygiene, and for doing as you were instructed, like wearing rubber bands. Honestly, how could you not take your kid to a doctor that they like and that they don’t dread seeing!I recommend them to EVERYONE I know that has asked for recommendations!
