Dr. Whetten's bio

This content was provided by Dr. Whetten "Las Vegas is my home, and I enjoyed growing up here, although I have lived many places since. I attended Bonanza High School and my first job was in my father's orthodontic office when I was 13. Studies have taken me to Utah, Nebraska, New York (Queens), and Canada. A mission for the LDS church allowed me to call Italy and Switzerland home for two years. I even found time to practice general dentistry in Green Valley in 2001. I met my wonderful wife while playing in a volleyball tournament. Together, we have three beautiful daughters and a son, and we are proud of them all. In my spare time, I enjoy spending time with my kids, traveling, golfing, and rooting for the Utes, Cornhuskers, and St. Louis Cardinals. Whatever you do deserves your best effort, so I spend a lot of time in my community, to offer my services and time as others did for me. I am involved in school oral health programs, the Boy Scouts of America, and my church. When possible, I also sponsor and coach youth sports teams."

Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Whetten "The number-one way to make a faster, more lasting first impression is through your smile. It is my belief that a simple smile can melt the day's ice away. That is why we are here: to improve patients' sense of self and help define who they are from that first encounter.  

It is absolutely imperative that I stay on the cutting edge of technology as an orthodontist. My master's thesis on digital model usage was published in the American Journal of Orthodontics and Dentofacial Orthopedics. In addition, I routinely take online courses from Invisalign® and other product manufacturers to stay abreast on what is on the horizon. Orthodontic component meetings in North America and Europe also continue to provide me with hands-on experience and lecture training."
