Dr. Morgan W. Gonder

Morgan W. Gonder DDS, MSD, is one of our orthodontists at GO Orthodontics in Oxford, Saltillo, Southaven, and Corinth, MS, and Collierville, TN!

From Dr. Gonder…

“I began working in the lab of an orthodontic office during the summers while I was still in high school. Even then, I began to see the positive effects a beautiful smile can have on a person’s life.

Whether it’s a child getting the treatment their parents wished they would have had as a kid, or an adult finally getting the smile they have dreamed of for years, the changes ripple throughout their lives. 

I truly enjoy getting to know people and hearing their life stories. As patients move through treatment, I love to watch their personalities grow and hear about their successes and even the challenges they endure in life.”
