But you need to hurry! To lock in the 2017 fees, contracts must be signed by May 31, 2018, AND patients must start their treatment by the end of August. This means new patients must have signed their contract by the designated date, and started treatment by August 31st 2018 to lock in their guaranteed lowest rates!

Please note that there will be an increase in fees this year, so now is the time to get started on that new smile! Whether you are a new patient or one who has delayed starting, we encourage you to plan that new smile into your budget now!

New Year and UNCOMMON News

Looking back on 2017, we can say simply that it was a year of change at Uncommon Orthodontics. We appreciate every patient, parent and referring dentist, along with the entire Joplin community, for continuing to support our practice and be a part of the Uncommon Family during this time of transition and change.

With the New Year comes a new set of changes. We are so excited to announce the next chapter in our uncommon journey and share our New Year’s News! We are welcoming THREE new doctors to the Uncommon Orthodontics team! 

Welcome Dr. Dake, Dr. Field and Dr. Sharp to the Uncommon Family!

This team of experienced doctors has come together to provide patients with stable and specialized care while also bringing the UNCOMMON guarantee of overseeing the individual care of each patient.

What to Expect

We are confident that this dynamic team of doctors provides the senior clinical leadership and conservative approach to orthodontics that align with the vision and passion Dr. P. had for Uncommon. Their progressive approach to orthodontics, as well as their conservative philosophy of non-extraction and arch development, align with the vision of Uncommon Orthodontics.

What we are bringing to 2018: a competent and passionate doctor team that will work daily to continue Dr. P’s legacy through their dedication to excellence and continuation of care for the office and the Joplin community.

What Won’t Change?

Joplin’s UNCOMMON spirit and Dr. P’s unparalleled passion is still the heart and soul of Uncommon Orthodontics.

Uncommon Orthodontics remains committed to the vision and legacy of Dr. P. In 2018 we will continue to offer every patient the same opportunity for an UNCOMMONLY beautiful smile through our low fees, (including no down payment, no interest, and low monthly payments) an office that is open 5 days a week to serve your needs, and UNCOMMONLY great service.

Thank you, Joplin

Thank you Joplin for reaching out to us and embracing us as a part of the community. Our heart is in the Joplin community, and the team at Uncommon Orthodontics is blessed to have a New Year to continue providing the opportunity and affordability of UNCOMMON Smiles to everyone. We continue to move forward with Dr. P’s dream of providing Uncommon Care for the community, and we are very excited to usher in the next chapter of our UNCOMMON journey.

patient rewards

Uncommon Rewards


At Uncommon Orthodontics, we pride ourselves on providing our patients with the very best care possible. From our skilled and knowledgeable staff to our state-of-the-art equipment, the Uncommon team prides themselves on the care and quality each patient receives.

Patient Cooperation

Treatment success relies on patient cooperation. By brushing regularly and well, following appliance instructions for expansion, wearing elastics properly, avoiding breakage and obeying retainer guidelines, patients can ensure they are doing their part to maximize their results. That is why we work to get parents and patients to partner with us and work as a team. We all want the same outcome: a big, beautiful, healthy smile!

The more closely orthodontist's instructions are followed, the more likely treatment time will decrease and quality of outcome will be increase. To encourage patient cooperation, Uncommon Orthodontics offers incentives to encourage you along the way.  Patients earn rewards by keeping appointments on time, brushing with excellence, following doctor instructions, and joining us on social media!

Uncommon Rewards

Prizes include t-shirts, travel mugs, sunglasses, flashlights, gift cards and more! We like to stock “something for everyone” and are constantly looking for more cool…and uncommon…rewards! We want your help as we journey through “braces world” and look forward to celebrating your child’s smile together! We are accepting new patient appointments now. Give us a call!

Back-To-School Smiles

Are you ready for back-to-school season?

It’s that time of year again—when summer is winding down and a new school year is about to begin. This is also the PERFECT time to come in and talk about a new SMILE! We have appointments available to receive a FREE CONSULTATION and FREE X-RAYS (a savings of $388).


If you are already a part of the UNCOMMON family, don’t forget these essential school supplies when you do your back-to-school shopping so you can take care of your #uncommonsmiles this school year:

  1. Toothbrush and floss: Don’t forget to brush and floss after lunch.
  2. Elastics: Remember to wear your rubber bands. Keep a supply in your locker or backpack so you won’t forget to change them after you eat.
  3. Wax: Keep wax in your locker in case of a poking wire or irritation.
  4. Mouthguards: If you play sports, please remember to wear a mouthguard. They are essential for protecting your smile!
  5. RETAINERS: Always place retainers in the case when it’s not in your mouth. This will help to keep you from leaving it on your lunch tray and accidentally throwing it away. It’s best if you leave your retainers in your locker at lunch to minimize the risk of this occurring.

You may want to consider putting together a care kit to keep in your backpack or locker so you can follow your treatment protocol while at school. And don’t forget to avoid hard candy and foods to prevent the need for emergency appointments, which are generally taken care of during school hours. Contact us today to schedule an appointment!

young patients

Calling All Secret Agents!

The Uncommon Kid's Club gets young patients excited about being a part of the Uncommon orthodontics family while helping them learn positive habits to maintain healthy teeth and gums.

Sometimes when our “under 10” patients come in for their first appointment, parents and doctors agree to hold off on beginning treatment (too many baby teeth, too young, etc.), but the Uncommon Orthodontics team understands the importance of our young patients and wants to ensure these kids remain active members of the UNCOMMON family, and that is why these young patients are invited to join the UNCOMMON “Kids’ Club” and become Secret Agents!

When a young patient signs up for our kids club, they automatically become one of our Secret Agents, receiving a packet filled with missions, secret agent files, Kids’ Club referral cards for their friends, PLUS a unique “Kids Club Disguise“ tee-shirt and other cool prizes when they complete missions! And when parent's sign the consent form, kids can earn additional prizes for sharing their adventures on social media! Our staff favorite activity is the finger-printing for the “Secret Agent ID Card.”

At Uncommon Orthodontics, our “patients-in-waiting” are very important to us and we are excited to offer the Kids’ Club program. The Kid's Club is specially designed engage our young patient's imaginations and get them excited about being part of the Uncommon Orthodontics family while gently helping them develop positive habits to maintain healthy teeth and gums and ensuring they have the strong foundation they need to get the most out of their orthodontic care.
