Dr. Kiersten Week-- Board Certified Orthodontist

Dr. Week is a board-certified orthodontic specialist and has been practicing in the Tri-Cities since 2006. She completed most of her undergraduate education at the South Dakota School of Mines and Technology, and completed her Bachelor of Science degree at the University of Houston, where she graduated magna cum laude. Dr. Week attended the University of Texas at San Antonio Health Science Center Dental School, where she graduated magna cum laude with honors in research and teaching. She earned numerous awards while attending dental school and was granted membership in the dental honor society Omicron Kappa Upsilon. Her time in dental school was not just spent in academics, however, as she was involved in student leadership and served as President of her dental school class for two years, participated in multiple research projects and was involved in multiple dental mission trips to Mexico.

After dental school, Dr. Week attended the University of Texas Dental Branch at Houston for her orthodontic specialty training, where she graduated with a Master of Science degree and earned her specialty certificate in orthodontics. During her residency, Dr. Week developed a special interest and passion for treating patients with cleft palate and other craniofacial anomalies. Dr. Week is a Diplomate of the American Board of Orthodontics, and a member of the American Association of Orthodontists, American Cleft Palate-Craniofacial Association, American Dental Association, Texas Orthodontic Study Club, Pacific Coast Society of Orthodontists, Washington State Dental Association and the Benton-Franklin Dental Society.

Dr. Week grew up in Richland, where she graduated from Richland High School. While she enjoyed her time living other places, her heart has been here and she is very happy for the opportunity to treat patients and raise her family in her hometown community. Dr. Week and her husband, Josh, have three beautiful children: Ty, Ezra and Ava. Outside of orthodontics, she enjoys spending time with her family, running, cycling, gardening, reading, cooking, backpacking and volunteering within her church and community.

Dr. Gregory Brown-- Orthodontic Specialist

Hello! My name is Gregory Brown and I will be starting as a new doctor at Signature Orthodontics on January 2, 2018. I am thrilled about this opportunity and cannot wait to meet you in person!

I was born and raised in the Tri-Cities. After completing my undergraduate degree from Washington State University and graduation from dental school at the College of Dental Medicine – Illinois at Midwestern University, I completed my orthodontic residency at the University of Oklahoma. Having been away from home for several years while I completed my education and training I couldn’t be more excited to be moving home to the Tri-Cities with my wife Andrea and our 18-year-old cat Navi. It will be an absolute honor to serve and work with the community I grew up in! Andrea and I are very much looking forward to setting down roots in this great community.

Besides moving teeth, I love doing just about anything active, especially in the outdoors. I am an avid snow skier, and more recently have really gotten into running and cycling. You may see me out running during my lunch break on a nice day! Andrea and I enjoy checking out new places to eat as well as cooking together at home, but as long as it involves food you won’t hear us complaining. My favorite food is pizza – pepperoni, pineapple and jalapeño is my go-to combo. We’re also huge sports fans, especially Washington sports! It always gets a little interesting around Apple Cup time given that Andrea graduated from the University of Washington and I graduated from Washington State…Go Cougs!

My favorite part of working as an orthodontist is interacting with patients and getting to be a part of their journey. Having gone through orthodontic treatment myself, I experienced first hand the positive effect transforming my smile had on my confidence and self-esteem. The positive impact orthodontics played in my own life instilled in me the desire to help provide the same for others.

My father, Dr. Dexter Brown, opened this practice over 45 years ago and now I have the incredible opportunity to continue his and Dr. Week’s legacy of great orthodontic care at this location. My number one goal is to ensure that you and your family’s needs continue to be met at this high level and that you feel well taken care of during this transition.
