Dr. Dan Sletten

Dr. Sletten is a third generation specialist in orthodontics. The Sletten family has been providing orthodontic care to the Midwest for over 60 years! He graduated as salutatorian of the University of Minnesota Dental Class of 1999 and earned both his Master of Science degree and Certificate in Orthodontics from the University of Iowa. His research has been published in the American Journal of Orthodontics, and he is able to share his expertise as a part-time faculty member of the University of Minnesota Department of Orthodontics and the Cleft Lip and Palate Team at Children’s Hospital. He has been voted Minnesota's Top Orthodontist multiple years by Minnesota Monthly.

He completed the two-year Advanced Education in Orthodontics (AEO) program, which is a degree only a small number of orthodontists in the country obtain. It focuses on ideal facial esthetics and more complex orthodontic issues, such as TMJ disorders and jaw surgery. He also studies with the Roth Williams International Society of Orthodontists (RWISO) and FACE, which is a collection of the best orthodontists from around the world. Dr. Sletten believes that a world class education is the only way to create “World Class Smiles”.

Dr. Sletten enjoys spending time with his family and doing anything outdoors with his boys and their dog, Steve. Jennifer is a Registered Dietitian and does nutrition consulting and lecturing statewide.
