Dr. Feller was successfully accepted into the orthodontic residency at Tufts University School of Dental Medicine in Boston, Massachusetts. While in residency, he was trained in both the didactics and clinical aspects of orthodontics. He spent his research time focusing on class II correction mechanics of orthodontists. One of the greatest benefits of residency at Tufts was the wealth of knowledge from the many dedicated faculty who taught Dr. Feller multiple and varied orthodontic treatments. Dr. Feller served as class president for both years while working several nights a week in a general dental practice. In May 2005, he successfully passed the American Board of Orthodontics written examination, signifying that he is board-eligible. In June 2005, Dr. Feller received his orthodontic specialty certificate from Tufts University.
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, the Damon system, and many other areas. He feels it is vitally important to remain abreast of the finest orthodontic techniques through continuing education. In the years following his residency, he has attended educational seminars for advanced orthodontics in New York City, San Francisco, San Antonio, Phoenix, Orlando, Las Vegas, and Boston.
Dr. Feller is also a partner in an orthodontic practice in Rock Springs, Wyoming (Feller and Feller orthodontics). He enjoys spending a few days a month working with the fine staff and wonderful patients in southwest Wyoming.
The Feller family (beautiful wife and four awesome sons) now reside in North Salt Lake, Utah. Dr. Feller enjoys outdoor activities such as snow-skiing, wake-surfing, golfing, and pretty much anything that involves time with his wife and boys. He feels his highest priorities are love and service to God, his family, and his fellow man.
Dr. Feller's practice philosophy is that each patient should receive the highest quality of care and attention to detail to achieve a broad, beautiful smile. In orthodontics, as with so many other health-care realms, technology and treatment is evolving at a rapid pace. At Bountiful Orthodontics you will find a state of the art facility including 3D imaging and soft tissue laser technology, as well as the finest orthodontic treatment protocols from the low-force, low-friction Damon system to Invisalign.
