Alison Fallgatter, DDS, MS
As an orthodontist, I have the wonderful opportunity to improve someone's smile, which can really enhance their life. It is a great privilege and honor to be entrusted with this responsibility. I have the chance to not only transform my patients' smiles, but also establish a relationship with them that goes beyond just working on their teeth. It is truly a blessing to be able to serve the folks in the Jamestown community, as well as the surrounding areas.
My team and I pride ourselves in taking the time to listen to our patients' individual needs and desires. We are committed to involving and educating our patients during every stage of their treatment, and to make certain we are helping them attain their goals.
Education and Experience
I attended Bismarck State College, where I earned my Associate's degree and continued on to Jamestown College, graduating Summa Cum Laude with my Bachelor of Arts degree. My Master's of Science Degree, Doctorate of Dental Surgery, and Certificate in Orthodontics were all earned at the University of Minnesota. I practiced as a general dentist for three years before advancing my education in orthodontics. I completed my orthodontics training in 2006 and have been exclusively practicing orthodontics since then.
I also participate in a broad range of continuing education courses, not just in orthodontics, so that I can provide optimal treatment for my patients' overall dental health.

Outside the Office
When I’m not in the office, my life revolves around my family. I have one precious son, Will, who I adopted from Ethiopia in 2009, in addition to several cats and a dog.
I enjoy spending time with family and friends around a campfire, riding bikes, and following sporting events. I usually have a good book to read and pass it on to others. I have a great selection of music I put together for my patients to listen to, most of which have a positive, upbeat message. I grew up on my family farm and enjoy the simple life of country living still today.
