Orthodontist in Oklahoma City, Edmond, Clinton, Deer Creek
Meet Melissa L. Farrow, DDS, MS
Dr. Melissa Farrow is a private practice orthodontic specialist in Oklahoma City, Edmond, Deer Creek, and Western Oklahoma has transformed thousands of smiles since 2007.
Over the past 15 years, Dr. Farrow built a team that truly feels like an extended family. This team has a genuine interest, concern and compassion for each other, their patients, and their patient's families.
The team works hard, has fun, and delivers amazing orthodontic experiences in an inviting atmosphere!
Prior to opening her private practice, Dr. Farrow completed her undergraduate degree and dental school studies at the University of Oklahoma. She went on to complete her orthodontic residency at the University of Colorado.
Dr. Farrow possesses a progressive orthodontic philosophy, which agrees with that of many dentists, hygienists, adults and parents. It is important to her to keep all permanent teeth in most cases and use comfortable modalities to achieve functional and stable bites that last a lifetime.
With that said, she finds early orthodontic treatment in young children to be a real benefit. Capturing young children in the mix of dentition with permanent and baby teeth is the perfect time to make space and eliminate the need for permanent tooth extractions in most cases.
Since Dr. Farrow was an adult orthodontic patient herself, working with adults is of particular interest to her.
She relates and appreciates the resources her adult patients put forth to undergo this experience.
She finds great pleasure in giving adults a smile that’s both healthy and functional—a smile that creates amazing self-confidence and self-esteem.

You will find them most often hiking, running, or walking together. Dr. Farrow’s initial professional background is in nutrition so health and wellness are an important part of her life.
