Opened in January 2017, DK Orthodontics is Bismarck’s newest orthodontic practice. With a focus on high-quality treatment geared towards the individual needs of each patient, it is our goal to treat you in an environment predicated upon customer service to ensure your comfort and well-being. To have an opportunity every day not only to be part of a profession that truly can transform someone’s life, but also build lifelong friendships with the ones we serve is the driving force within our office.

We are excited to help create the smile you have always wanted, in an environment that values honesty, trust, and commitment. We are here to serve you, every day, and that is something we do not take lightly. Orthodontics is an exciting and life-changing journey and we look forward to taking this ride with you!

Treatment Coordinator

Danielle comes to DK Orthodontics with over 25 years of experience in the profession and will guide you through the entire orthodontic process starting with the complimentary consultation all the way to the day that treatment begins. She will work closely with you to find the right financial plan for your family and ensure that all of your questions are answered as you enter this exciting journey!

Danielle is originally from Flasher, ND, and has worked in orthodontics in Rapid City, SD, Glendale, AZ, and now Bismarck. Her free time is spent with family, friends, her significant other, Lee, and their two dogs Molly and Rowdy. She will be the first to tell you that Saturdays in the Fall are spent either in the Fargodome or in front of the tv as she never misses a Bison football game. We are very excited to have Danielle as part of the team!
