Dr. Day - Orthodontist
Dr. Day’s education and background give him experience above and beyond the norm. Dr. Day grew up in Rochester, Minnesota where at the age of 14 and in braces himself; he decided he wanted to become an orthodontist! Once the goal was determined, he carefully planned out the steps he would need to take to achieve his dream. After graduating from Mayo High School, Dr. Day attended Brigham Young University, where he completed his pre-dental requirements majoring in Biology. He then attended Oregon Health Sciences University, where he received his DMD with high honors, graduating first in his class. After serving our country as a general dentist in Europe for three years, Dr. Day returned to school at the University of Louisville, where he earned his Master’s of Oral Biology and his certificate of orthodontics. He then served as Chief of Orthodontics at the Army Hospital at Fort Bliss, Texas, working on soldiers with difficult surgical orthodontic needs. While in Texas, Dr. Day also worked on his own time at a civilian orthodontic practice once a week and on the cleft lip and palate team at the Border Children’s Health Clinic. It was during his time in Texas that Dr. Day completed the process for Board Certification by the American Board of Orthodontics.
Dr. Day and his wife Allison have four wonderful children: Tyler, Anne, Elizabeth and Tanner. The years in the Army were great for the Day family, but as the children got older they decided to leave the military and settle down where everyone else seemed to be going – Gilbert Arizona! Growing up in Minnesota, palm trees always symbolized good times for Dr. Day, so as he created the vision of his private practice in Arizona, the name “Oasis” with a palm and waterfall theme were a perfect fit for him! Oasis Orthodontics opened its doors in 2005 and since then Dr. Day and his team have truly enjoyed seeing patients in this relaxing and fun atmosphere where they strive to make everyone’s experience a “cool and refreshing change from the ordinary!”
