Orthodontic Treatment

Salt Lake City, Lehi, and South Jordan

At Smile Ranch Orthodontics we believe everyone deserves the confidence, joy, and quality of life that comes with a healthy, beautiful smile. We believe every face is unique and that our job is to enhance whatever makes you special by making it the best it can be. This means getting the right orthodontic treatment, whether it’s braces, Invisalign®, or the Damon® System.

What makes us unique? We believe there shouldn’t be a price on the type of orthodontic treatment you want, whether you prefer traditional braces or nearly invisible Invisalign retainers. We base the price of our treatment on how long it takes, not the treatment you choose to give you the freedom to pick the option best for you. Give us a call for a free consultation, where we can help you choose the right treatment for you.

Are you looking for a great smile? Look no further than Smile Ranch Orthodontics, where you can get affordable orthodontic treatment from one of our two experienced orthodontists, Dr. Alan C. Jensen and Dr. Douglas Anderson. We have four convenient locations you can choose from, including:

Invisalign Treatment

This orthodontic treatment is the invisible, removable, and comfortable option to straighten your teeth. Dr. Jensen has treated more patients with Invisalign® than anyone else in Utah. Many of our patients had never considered traditional braces but are now happily and comfortably improving their smiles with Invisalign®.


Invisalign Teen™ is custom-designed to fit your teeth and work with your lifestyle. This comfortable and smooth option allows you to continue doing the things you want without interrupting your life. Invisalign Teen™ Let’s You Be You! Learn more about Invisalign® here.


Traditional Braces

Traditional Metal braces are the most common type of braces and have evolved to become much more comfortable than they used to be. The latest materials move teeth faster and with less discomfort! With metal braces, you have the option of adding colored elastics (rubber bands) for a more unique and colorful smile. Learn more about traditional braces here.

Traditional brackets

The Damon System

The Damon System allows your teeth to shift easier and more comfortably by using self-ligating brackets that allow for better results in a shorter period of time. These are considered the most efficient form of braces requiring fewer appointments and shorter visits. If you’re interested in learning more about The Damon System, click here.


Clear Braces

These braces are made out of clear, ceramic materials making them less visible than traditional metal braces. Clear braces are the cosmetic option for braces typically used on older teens and adults. Being ceramic, these braces require a little more attention to oral hygiene to sustain them.



Orthodontic Appliances

Orthodontic Appliances are used to keep the teeth straight after treatment and fix other problems in the mouth such as overbite. At The Smile Ranch we use a few different appliances depending on your smile situation. We carry Quad Helix Appliances, Herbst Appliance, Temporary Anchorage Device, Retainers, AcceleDents, and Tongue Tamers. To learn more about the appliances we use and why, click here.

Life with Braces

Congratulations you are finally working towards that beautiful smile you have always wanted! At first life with braces can take some getting used to but we are here to help you out. Check out these pointers on eating, foods to avoid, soreness, brushing, flossing, and athletics.
