Meet Dr. ThurmanDr. Brian Thurman has spent his entire life enjoying all of the beauty that California has to offer. A Fresno native, he still escapes to the ocean or the mountains whenever his busy schedule allows. Driven by his love for natural beauty, Dr. Thurman enjoys creating beautiful smiles and healthy bites that last a lifetime. Dr. Thurman attended Clovis West High School, where he graduated as the class salutatorian and was a captain and three-time valley champion men’s basketball team. He went on to study biopsychology at the University of California—Santa Barbara (UCSB), graduating with high honors. He then earned his Doctor of Dental Surgery degree from the University of California—San Francisco, again graduating at the top of his class. After dental school, Dr. Thurman fulfilled his lifelong dream and completed an orthodontic residency program at Columbia University in New York City. There, he earned his Master of Science in Orthodontics degree after completing this elite three-year specialty orthodontic program. He is proud to be the only Ivy League trained Orthodontist in the Fresno/Clovis area. Dr. Thurman could not be happier in Fresno. He enjoys staying active and spends as much time outdoors as possible. He loves a good work out-hiking, surfing, snowboarding and playing golf and basketball are a few of his many hobbies. He spends as much time as possible with family and friends and enjoys giving back to the community he loves. You can often find Dr. Thurman, his amazing staff, family and friends out supporting the local community. He encourages his patients to join him as they volunteer regularly at a variety of charitable organizations in Fresno, Clovis and the surrounding areas. To stay up to date with the latest in orthodontic advances and better serve his patients, Dr. Thurman regularly attends continuing education courses and remains active in various national, regional and local professional organizations, including the American Dental Association (ADA), the American Association of Orthodontists (AAO), and the California Dental Association (CDA). He is a Premier Preferred Provider of Invisalign and is highly trained in treating patients of all ages, children and adults alike.
