Michael W. Morrison, DDS, MSD
Whenever anyone asks, I can honestly say that I just love what I do. As an orthodontist, I get to change smiles and provide my patients with an opportunity to create a smile they are happy with. I love the excitement when they are getting ready for braces. As treatment progresses, it is great to see my patients start to smile more and more as they see a change in their smile and their confidence growing. There is a great kid behind every smile.
I am so lucky to have such a great team to work with each day. I love that we all love to laugh and enjoy the work we do. I absolutely could not do what I do without them; they all work hard to make each and every patient feel welcome and important. We truly believe that each person is significant and that they deserve the time and attention necessary for a successful smile. We try to make every patient feel comfortable in the office and help them to understand that they don’t need to be nervous. Having braces is fun!

Outside the Office
I am originally from Salt Lake City, Utah, and currently reside in Elkhorn, Nebraska, with my wife, Nichole, and our five children, Hannah, Gracie, Joshua, Sophia, and William. We haven’t been here long, but we sure love it and are happy to be back in Nebraska; it’s such a great place to live and raise a family.
When I’m not at work, I love being with my family. We love to be together playing games, camping, watching a good movie, and just hanging out with each other. I love to water ski, run, bike, play racquetball, and swim. I also enjoy reading a good book, if I get a chance. Most of all, I am passionate about my family.
