Meet Dr. Buck
Orthodontics is a passion of mine. I love to see a smile I helped create and the confidence it gives my patients. My goal for each patient is to achieve an excellent result and I take the necessary time, thought and effort to reach this goal. I enjoy making a difference, even in some small way, in the lives of the people that come through our doors.
There is something special about helping people obtain a beautiful smile. I love working with so many different individuals from so many different backgrounds and helping each achieve the smile they deserve. It’s exciting to watch their confidence grow as we improve their smile, and their inner light shines a little brighter.

Outside the Office
A native of St. Anthony, ID, I currently reside in Klamath Falls with my wife, and our three children. While I certainly love practicing orthodontics, my family is truly the light of my life. I feel that being the best you can be for your family is one of the most important things you can do. I love being a dad and a husband. When time allows, I stay active with ATV riding, snowmobiling, and water skiing, as well as playing tennis, basketball, racquetball, golf, and soccer.
I find great joy in helping others and strengthening the community, which gives us all a better place to live. Whether coaching boys’ basketball, volunteering with the Boy Scouts, collecting food for the local food bank, or simply helping a neighbor in need, I enjoy being an active member of my community.
