As an adult, there are unlimited choices out there for orthodontists. I’m so glad I chose to go with Redwood Orthodontics. Dr Mortensen gave me a treatment that fit my lifestyle and budget. He answered all of my questions and concerns in a professional manner. Wearing braces isn’t fun but every visit was personal and enjoyable! Top marks for Dr Mortensen and his team! They do a stellar job and I now have an amazing smile!

Best place for braces!!!! It’s my second time here! Why? Because I was a stubborn kid who didn’t like wearing retainers, overall. I enjoy the environment here and they treat you like family! Dr. Micah is awesome! You can have friendly conversations with the assistants and they’re truly nice! I highly recommend friends and family to this place. I have my dentist and orthodontist all in 1 building!

—Sussie Verduzco

I always have a great experience coming to Redwood Orthodontics. They’re very welcoming as soon as I walk in the door. The staff are always friendly and very professional. In particular, Kathy. I just love her. She always ready for me. Tells me what’s going to be done to my teeth. And Dr. Mortensen is the just best. I would definitely recommend this place.

—Marisol Aguirre

We have had nothing but positive experiences at Redwood Orthodontics with Dr Mortensen and his fantastic staff. He is thorough, kind, and is great at what he does. We have had four children treated here and will continue to recommend him and his services to anyone needing orthodontic care.
