Dr. Feller's practice philosophy is that each patient should receive the highest quality of care and attention to achieve a broad, beautiful smile. Orthodontic treatment should be an enjoyable and memorable experience, facilitated by a friendly staff and doctor. He advocates the use of state-of-the-art technology to facilitate a higher quality of orthodontics with less patient discomfort and shorter treatment time, while maintaining a reasonable fee schedule. Dr. Feller has received advanced training during and after residency in each of the following areas: Invisalign, TMJ dysfunction, cleft lip and palate, implant-supported anchorage, corticotomy orthodontics, combination orthodontics/orthognathic surgery cases, the Damon system, and many other areas. He feels it is vitally important to remain abreast of the finest orthodontic techniques through continuing education and study. In the years following his residency, he has attended educational seminars in New York City, San Francisco, San Antonio, Phoenix, and Boston for advanced orthodontic treatments.
As an orthodontist, Dr. Feller has the skills and knowledge necessary to ensure your orthodontic treatment is both efficient and effective. Since graduating from dental school in 2003, orthodontics is all he does! He said,
"One of my greatest rewards as an orthodontist is taking the time at the end of treatment to have our patients look back at where they started. They and I are always astounded at the amazing changes we see. But the specific changes in the smile so often correspond to changes in their self-esteem and overall confidence. That's the greatest part of my job. Seeing my patients realize their potential and true identity."
