“Creating a beautiful, customized smile that instills confidence for each one of my patients is profoundly rewarding for me.” – Dr. Chad Larson
Dr. Chad Larson is a native of Rochester, Minnesota. In fact, he proudly wears a GLK smile himself! He was inspired to pursue orthodontics after working at GLK as an office and laboratory assistant for two summers during college. Now, as an orthodontist, he loves seeing the transformation of his patients’ smiles and the confidence it gives them to achieve their personal goals.
Dr. Larson is honored to work alongside Drs. Nellie Kim-Weroha and Brent Larson, together they continue to deliver the excellent patient-centered care upon which GLK was founded.
