Jesperson Orthodontics Welcomes Dr. Daniel Keith, DDS, MS
BISMARCK, N.D.: Dr. Daniel Keith, DDS, MS has recently joined Jesperson Orthdontics and is helping Dr. Brian Jesperson straighten smiles, 13,000 smiles and counting. With offices in both Bismarck and Dickinson, Jesperson Orthodontics is one of the few professional orthodontic providers serving western North Dakota.
Originally from Bismarck, Dr. Keith graduated from Century High School and University of Mary. He attended dental school at the University of Colorado, earning his Doctor of Dental Surgery degree. Following that, Dr. Keith received his Master’s Degree in Orthodontics from Seton Hill University in Pennsylvania.
The addition of Dr. Keith to the Jesperson staff is the culmination of a 10 year mentorship between Dr. Keith and Dr. Jesperson. In 2003, Daniel Keith was a student at University of Mary, undecided about his career path. When he walked into Jesperson Orthodontics for an appointment to get his teeth aligned, he had no idea that 10 years later, he’d be working with Dr. Jesperson as an orthodontist himself.
“I had just started undergrad classes at University of Mary, not really sure about my major. I came in for braces and Dr. Jesperson and I started talking. He said, ‘You know, you should consider orthodontics.’”
That discussion turned into a decade-long mentorship. “Really, I feel like part of his family. He’s helped guide me through school and through life. It’s great to be able to work with one of your best friends.”
Dr. Jesperson echoes that sentiment. “Dan has worked extremely hard to get where he is today. Although he gives me credit as a mentor, he really put in the work to get where he is today. I’m proud of his accomplishments and glad to be working together.”
“It’s exciting to be back home in North Dakota,” says Dr. Keith.
