A Road Map to the Future

Rocky Mountain® Orthodontics located in Denver Colorado, is The World’s Oldest Synergistic, Bioprogressive®, Breathing Enhancement Orthodontic Company®.

RMO® was founded in 1933 by Colorado orthodontist Dr. Archie Brusse.  The last 55 years was led by Martin Brusse whose vision was dedicated to developing continued education and future appliance systems in pursuit of promoting vital oral health for every patient.  RMO® remains privately owned and maintains a rich history deeply rooted in Denver culture.

Martin Brusse realized his goals in two very special and capable people he confidently selected to continue guiding RMO® into the future, Tony Zakhem and Jody Hardy.

Rocky Mountain® Orthodontics proudly supports the local community and  is honored to design, engineer, and manufacture its premium quality orthodontic products with pride in the U.S.A.

RMO® is proud to be recognized as the longest-running exhibitor at the AAO.  Since the company’s inception, Rocky Mountain® Orthodontics has pioneered numerous orthodontic breakthroughs such as pre-formed molar bands and the metal-injection-molding process.

RMO®’s innovations have continued with orthodontic advancements such as RMODS® and e-Ceph® computer aided diagnostic services, interceptive pediatric appliances, and the Straight Wire Low Friction system which includes RMO®’s patented Synergy® bracket line, the Dual-Top temporary anchorage device system, and the RMbond® Indirect Bonding system.

RMO® is dedicated to developing Continuing Education programs designed to enhance and expand clinicians’ knowledge of various systems, appliances, and biomechanics.  RMO® Seminars are conducted throughout the year and around the world with lecture specialists trained in multiple disciplines.

With a world-wide distribution network, a subsidiary division in Europe, and a joint venture operation in Japan, RMO® is truly a global manufacturer.  Rocky Mountain® Orthodontics has been awarded twice with The President’s distinguished “E-Star Award for Exports” by the U.S. Secretary of Commerce “For continued outstanding contributions to the Export Expansion Program of the United States of America”. In addition, in 2008 RMO® was awarded the Governor Award for Excellence in Exporting.

Many of RMO®’s great developmental strengths come from valued relationships and the exchange of oral health concepts, innovations, and educational information.  Combined, this process allows RMO® to service customers around the world with progressive Synergistic System treatment solutions.

“RMO® is proud of our heritage, history, and legacy. Tony and Jody have recently completed the formation of an entirely new executive management team that will guide the next generation as we move towards the future.”
