Meet Dr. Samuel J. Frydenlund

Changing Lives, One Person and One Smile at a Time

I love being an orthodontist. I still look forward to going to the office each morning, even after 30 years. I enjoy meeting new people and helping them make positive, lasting changes in their life. I love watching people transform along with their smile, as they gain confidence and become more outgoing.

I now see patients who I treated when I first started the practice: they’re bringing their kids to me! It’s truly a joy to form those kinds of connections with my patients; they’re more than patients to me, they’re my friends.

Our practice is unique in that we provide long-term followup after treatment is complete. Many practices see a patient for only a year or two, but we have patients return for at least five years, until we’re certain we have a stable, healthy, and beautiful smile ... for life! — Dr. Samuel Frydenlund
