Not only is she Yuma’s only female orthodontist, Dr. Thayer is honored with numerous awards and distinctions during her years in college, dental school and orthodontic residency.
Dr. Thayer is originally from Sedona, Arizona and had great pleasure spending the last few years practicing orthodontics in Bangor, Maine and the greater Phoenix area. She completed her undergraduate degree in dental hygiene from Northern Arizona University (NAU). She then completed her dental and post-graduate orthodontic training earning her master’s in orthodontics and dentofacial orthopedics at the AT Stills University (Mesa, AZ). Outside the office, Dr. Thayer enjoys spending time outdoors with her husband (Brandon), 2 young children (Layla & Carson) and their two dogs (Beef Cake & Mac). Dr. Thayer looks forward to serving her patients and community.
Our office provides the latest in digital scanning technology, I-CAT imaging, laser therapy, 3D printing and more! Which means, no messy dental impressions needed to start braces or to transition to clear aligner therapy. We host creative monthly contests for our patients and their families. We love volunteering and donating to local schools, fundraisers and supporting our local Yuma businesses! We intentionally maintain a quaint private practice office and a small team which allows Dr. Thayer to spend quality time with each patient.
