Micah Mortensen, Orthodontist

About Micah:

Micah was born and raised in Utah and has roots both in the state and in dentistry, which are deeper than a stubborn tooth. He grew up the child of a dentist himself, and continued the family business by becoming a dentist and orthodontist himself.

After graduating from Taylorsville High School, Micah attended the University of Utah, where he received a Bachelor’s Degree in Medical Biology. From there, he was accepted to and completed the Dental Surgery doctoral program at the University of Washington School of Dentistry, where he graduated second in his class, with honors.

The last stop before setting up shop in Utah was an orthodontic residency and speciality certification at St. Louis University. Micah also squeezed in a Master’s Degree in Dental Science while he was at it. In addition to being the enemy of cavities and crooked teeth everywhere, Micah also finds time to reshape the field of orthodontics (not unlike the way braces reshape your teeth) as a member of the American Association of Orthodontists, the American Dental Association, and the Omicron Kappa Upsilon National Dental Society, and through his own research. He has been published in the profession’s leading journal, the American Journal of Orthodontics and Dentofacial Orthopedics. Suddenly, flossing doesn’t sound like such a big deal.
