Hello, and welcome! Dr. Ross and our entire team are looking forward
to meeting you in person soon. To prepare for your first appointment
and to understand the Ross Orthodontics experience, we have
prepared this booklet for you.
We are honored and appreciative that you have selected us for your orthodontic needs. You will find Ross Orthodontics unlike any practice you have known before because we put people first, and we go above and beyond to deliver an outstanding patient experience.
This is a modern, state-of-the-art practice utilizing the best technology the industry has to offer but with a personal touch. Our investment in technology, training, and materials allows us to deliver a better patient experience with less invasive exams and treatments that yield better, faster, and long-lasting results, no matter whether you’re seeing us in our Forest Lake or our Hudson office.
We do far more than just straighten teeth, we also offer healthy smiles! We can’t wait to give you the smile of your dreams! Dr. Ross is also highly unique in the world of orthodontics as he also actively treats sleep apnea. When he finds his patients are faced with airway challenges, he incorporates sleep medicine into his treatments.
The end result is a successful solution for issues patients have been potentially struggling with for years.
We spend a lot of time trying to make it fun. ~ Dr. Ross

I started my dental career in 2008 working at the VA hospital in Minneapolis. I found working there extremely rewarding as I was able to give back to those that sacrificed so much for our country. I am now married to a marine, and we have an amazing little baby, Wyatt.
I started working at Ross Orthodontics in 2018 when our family moved to Wyoming. I am excited to join this community! We love doing anything outdoors including hunting, fishing, 4-wheeling, snowmobiling and playing on a beach volleyball team.
