Jonna Laslovich, DMD

Dr. Jonna Laslovich was born and raised in Butte, and as a teenager undergoing orthodontic treatment, the removal of her braces made her recognize the value of orthodontics. She was amazed by the incredible transformation in smiles and self-confidence that resulted from orthodontic treatment. She graduated from Montana Tech with a Bachelor of Science in biology, and earned her doctorate degree and specialized in orthodontics at the Arizona School of Dentistry & Oral Health. Dr. Laslovich graduated from dental school with high distinction and was inducted into the Omicron Kappa Upsilon academic honors society. The research Dr. Laslovich completed while in residency was published in the Journal of Clinical Orthodontics in July 2016.
