Dr. Jonathan Feller

After growing up in a small town in Wyoming, Dr. Jonathan Feller later moved to Utah and discovered his love of smile transformations, driven more as he worked with his orthodontist father during high school. Dr. Feller’s love of music also led him to an internship at a recording studio. 

Upon returning from a service mission in Australia, Dr. Feller set out to get into a career of recording and producing music, but after working as a dental assistant for his brother-in-law and delivering a denture to a patient, his focus shifted permanently from music to dentistry. The immediate confidence and joy Dr. Feller saw in the patient when getting his smile back was enough to solidify his choice to continue making these life-changing experiences possible. 

When Dr. Feller is not in the office, he loves spending time with his four kids and his amazing wife. He also enjoys snowboarding, playing football, and still has a soft spot for making and enjoying music.
