Meet Dr. Sara Bratton

Dr. Sara Bratton, a graduate of University of Missouri-Kansas City School of Dentistry, is an accomplished practitioner who believes technical expertise needs to be combined with genuine, personal concern for the patient. She’s also a devoted Midwesterner who came straight home after her general residency and initial practice work in Louisiana, so she could provide the kind of whole-community care that just fits with the values you expect from a dentist in St. Joseph.

I’ve been coming here for years now, because the staff is friendly and professional and they take excellent care of my teeth! They never surprise me with extra charges and I have referred several friends over the years.

Our Dental Services

Dr. Bratton wants everyone in the St. Joseph community to feel welcome and well cared for at Bratton Dental Co. Individuals of every age and entire families are invited to come in and experience dental care rooted in a desire to serve all.

Offering Orthodontics, Too

Dr. Bratton’s approach to community dentistry includes having as many expert services as possible under one roof. That’s why she has trained in the field of orthodontics and can provide several teeth-straightening procedures:

  • SureSmile Clear Aligners: Convenient and virtually invisible aligners, similar to Invisalign.
  • Traditional Braces: Tried and true, full-metal, and the most economical option.
  • Ceramic Braces: Similar to traditional braces but with clear or tooth-colored brackets.
  • Self-Ligating Braces: Uses a built-in system, rather than rubber bands or metal ties to secure the wire threaded through the brackets.
  • Early-Intervention Treatment: Some children benefit from early treatments for jaw and teeth positioning that can prevent certain dental issues and make later orthodontic treatment easier.

Dr. Bratton may also recommend orthodontic treatment as a way to relieve TMJ.

Dr. Bratton is phenomenal! I first started seeing her as my dentist and we started to talk about my discomfort with my jaw. She advised on some first steps we could make to help with the pain and go from there. I feel like I’m getting my life back. She truly cares about her patients and works to find the best solutions tailored to you. I live in Kansas City but I will drive to St. Joe to continue to get her amazing care! Office and staff are fantastic too! Call and book today!

I have had bad experiences at the dentist throughout my life and because of this I neglected my teeth for a long time. About a year ago I gave dr bratton a shot after someone recommended her. She has done root canals, fillings, extractions on me you name it. I no longer have a fear of the dentist. She makes sure you’re 100% comfortable. It is always a good experience going to that office and dealing with any of them.
