Going the Extra Mile for Your Smile

The best orthodontic treatment experience is about more than receiving professional and gentle care. You should also trust that your doctor and orthodontic team have your best interest at heart.

At Meyer & Dana Orthodontics, we’ll go the extra mile to exceed your expectations at our offices in Rapid City, Spearfish, Gillette, Buffalo, and Pierre.

Expert Training

Our team is made up of six trained orthodontists: Dr. Chad Meyer, Dr. Jesse Dana, Dr. Peyton Cometti, Dr. Shannon Schober, and Dr. Ebach.

Orthodontists are dentists first, but only about six out of 100 dental school graduates continue to become orthodontists. To practice orthodontics, your doctors spent 11 years in training (four years of college, four years of dental school, and three years of orthodontics residency).

As orthodontic students, they spent three years learning the skills needed to manage tooth movement and guide facial development. This means they have the expertise necessary to give you a straight and beautiful smile!

Personal Service

At Meyer & Dana Orthodontics, we want to treat our patients like we would treat our own families. That means our supportive team is passionate about working with you to achieve your smile goals.

You’ll always get personalized treatment plans from your orthodontist at Meyer & Dana, as well as a thorough explanation for those treatments. You can always feel comfortable asking your questions and talking through any concerns throughout your care at Meyer & Dana Orthodontics.

At your initial consultation, one of our doctors will review your photos and X-rays to determine the best way to address your individual needs. Then you’ll choose the type of braces you want—traditional metal, clear ceramic, or clear aligners.

Our goal at Meyer & Dana Orthodontics is not just to give you the smile of your dreams, but to provide excellent customer service throughout your treatment.

Comfortable Treatments

Gone are the days of painful headgear, clunky bands on every tooth, and overly tight stainless steel wires. Modern orthodontic treatment with Meyer & Dana Orthodontics is much more comfortable than ever before.

This is because we use shape-memory NiTi wires and self-ligating brackets.

With the same technology that NASA uses, NiTi wires exert a continuous force against the teeth to move them in the right direction. This means there is no need to tighten any wires.
