The commercial segments introduce the most caring and compassionate local Doctors and Dentists in the community to promote healthcare and make the selection process easier for viewers at home.

Doctors and Dentists like Daniel W Sletten DDS were selected by an independent research team who determined them to be the region’s highest rated healthcare specialist through patient reviews on websites such as: Web MD, Yelp, Rate MD, Health Grades, Angie’s List, Droogle and other leading independent healthcare rating companies.

Daniel W Sletten DDS, one of the highest rated Orthodontists operates a successful practice, Sletten & Brettin Orthodontics located at 1820 Market Drive Unit B, Stillwater, MN 55082. Dr. Sletten is a third generation specialist in orthodontics. The Sletten family has been providing orthodontic care to the Midwest for over 60 years! He graduated Salutatorian of the University of Minnesota Dental Class of 1999 and earned both his Master of Science degree and Certificate in Orthodontics from the University of Iowa. His research has been published in the American Journal of Orthodontics, and he is able to share his expertise at the Cleft Lip and Palate Team at Children’s Hospital.

Dr. Brettin pursued degrees in Chemistry and Biology from Moorhead State University. He received his Specialty Certificate in Orthodontics and Master of Science degree from the University of Iowa – the birthplace of Orthodontics and one of the most prestigious programs in the World. During his time at Iowa, he was involved in researching the use of mini-implants in orthodontics and his research has been accepted for publication in the American Journal of Orthodontics. Dr. Brettin then received his Doctor of Dental Surgery degree from the University Of Minnesota School Of Dentistry where he was fortunate to graduate with honors and was inducted into the Omicron Kappa Upsilon honorary dental society.

Dr. Sletten & Dr. Brettin are the only providers of SureSmile in the St. Croix Valley area. This state-of-the-art technology yields enhanced patient comfort, fewer trips to the office and shorter treatment times. Through 3-D imaging and customizing each patient’s arch wires, the SureSmile system gives Dr. Sletten and Dr. Brettin more control to precisely configure each treatment plan. The Shape Memory alloy wires used in the SureSmile design are more effective than the traditional arch wires used in conventional braces, allowing for less discomfort, and treatment times reduced by up to 40% on average.

Patients hold Daniel W Sletten DDS in the highest regard. “If anyone had told me ten years ago that I would have become an orthodontia patient in my late 50’s, I wouldn’t have believed it. But my teeth started shifting years ago – to the point where my upper teeth were seriously out of alignment and the bottom were so crowded that the top of one healthy tooth actually broke off due to the pressure. Something had to be done. First, I visited the clinic of my new dentist, Dr. Ned Windmiller. After a lot of repair and rejuvenation, it was suggested that I needed to see you about orthodontia. I knew it needed to be done, although I hated to think about having braces again at my age. But I did my homework and came to see you. I was impressed with you, with your clinic and with your approach. Even so, I was still hesitant to make the commitment. So I did nothing for another year or so until I realized that, as you often said, the time will go by anyway. Why not come out of it with a dazzling new smile? So we got started. And in only a little more than 18 months, my teeth looked great. I felt that I was in good hands the entire time and that I could always count on you to tell me what was happening, how I was progressing and what I could do to help the process along. You were the consummate professional and I am forever grateful for what you have done for me. It’s been a pleasure working with you and everybody on your staff. What a great group of people! They were always helpful, caring and respectful of my time and schedule. In fact, my visits were something that I started looking forward to - a fun event on my journey to a happy, healthy smile. I’m now a loyal, satisfied patient who will forever be a fan of Sletten & Brettin Orthodontics. You are the best and I thank you for making this such a wonderful, exciting experience.” – Barbara 4/17/13
