In 1962, our founding doctors, Dr. Frank Jeffries and Dr. Pete Omeara, began striving toward the goal of establishing the best practice providing orthodontic care in the greater Des Moines area. Quickly realizing they had a great community within which to live and work, this goal became the mantra by which they practiced.

In 1972, Dr. Don Hagan continued the high quality orthodontic care they began and added Dr. Dennis Kommer to the practice in 1976. Dr. Kommer added and worked alongside Dr. Jeff Sturdivant from 1994 to 2008 before retiring and the final addition of Dr. Kyle Mann was made, continuing a long tradition of top trained orthodontists being part of this great practice. Drs. Sturdivant and Mann are honored to continue the legacy of high quality orthodontics these great men have left behind and take very seriously their role in providing beautiful, healthy smiles that last a lifetime.

Our mission is to provide excellent orthodontic care in a respectful, relaxed, and fun atmosphere. Orthodontics is so much more than straight teeth. We provide beautiful, healthy smiles that last a lifetime. We are committed to providing the finest in quality orthodontic care to our patients of all ages!
