Southern Minnesota Orthodontics

  • Your Smile is Our Specialty: Although many dental professionals offer orthodontic treatment, our practice is limited to orthodontic and dentofacial specialty care. Each of our doctors has completed post-dental degree specialty training in orthodontics, and remains at the leading-edge of advancements through continuing education. When we say your smile is our specialty, we mean it!
  • Evidence-based Orthodontics: We are proud to provide the highest-quality proven orthodontic services, grounded in evidence-based science and research. Not every new treatment option is ideal and our doctors carefully evaluate new techniques and technologies before incorporating them into your care. Your orthodontic treatment will be comfortable, timely, and effective, delivering a functional, beautiful smile that lasts!
  • Patient-Centered and Doctor-Driven Care: Your clinical needs and personal concerns play a large role in determining your orthodontic treatment. Working closely with you, your doctor will design a unique treatment approach that fits your expectations, works with your constraints, and delivers the best results possible. You’ll see your doctor at each scheduled active treatment appointment, as they evaluate your progress and make any detailed adjustments needed for your most beautiful new smile!
