Meet Dr. Megan Utter

Dr. Megan could not be more excited to join Welmerink Orthodontics! She is a transplant from Grand Rapids, Michigan, and completed dental school at the University of Michigan. During her time there, Dr. Megan uncovered her desire to pursue a specialty in orthodontics, which led her to the University of Iowa where she earned a master’s degree in orthodontics in June 2021. She was Chief Resident of her program and earned high praise from her instructors and fellow residents for her outstanding orthodontic skill and compassion working with patients.

Dr. Megan is in the process of becoming a board-certified orthodontist. She is a member of the American Association of Orthodontists, the Pacific Coast Society of Orthodontics, the Northern Nevada Dental Society, and the Nevada Dental Society. She is very passionate about giving back to the community and maintaining involvement in organized dentistry. Dr. Megan appreciates the art and science behind moving teeth, recognizing that each patient has their own needs. She enjoys getting to know patients and their families throughout treatment, while watching their teeth move and smile grow bigger.

Outside of practicing orthodontics, Dr. Megan enjoys almost anything outdoors. She spends her time hiking, camping, snowboarding, and enjoying time with her spouse and two dogs. Dr. Megan also likes to travel (when the world allows her to) and explore new cultures and experience foreign cuisines. She loves a good card game and puzzle with her family and friends.

Dr. Megan looks forward to collaborating with Dr. Adam and treating patients here in Northern Nevada. She is passionate about her work and cannot wait to share her love for patient care and orthodontics with our community.
