A Road Map to the Future

Rocky Mountain Orthodontics® (RMO®), based in Denver, Colorado, was founded in 1933 by Colorado orthodontist Dr. Archie Brusse. His vision was to create a company that supported continuing education and appliance systems in pursuit of promoting vital oral health in every patient. RMO remains privately owned and maintains a rich history deeply rooted in Denver culture.

RMO proudly supports the local community and designs, engineers, and manufactures its premium quality orthodontic products with pride in the U.S.A. Since the company’s inception, RMO has pioneered many orthodontic breakthroughs such as pre-formed molar bands and the mental-injection molding process.

RMO’s innovations 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.

The company has participated in a number of continuing education programs design to enhance and expand clinicians’ knowledge of various systems, appliances, and biomechanics.

A global company, RMO has a worldwide distribution network and a subsidiary division in Europe. RMO has been twice awarded The President’s distinguished “E-Star Award for Exports” by the U.S. Secretary of Commerce and in 2008 was awarded the Governor Award for Excellence in Exporting.

“RMO® has begun a new era with the sale by longtime owners Jody Hardy and Tony Zakhem to veteran orthodontic manufactures Michael Jahns and Brandon Bernacchi on October 20, 2020. The new ownership is committed to new investment in technologies and processes to ensure excellent quality and service and to renew RMO® as a globally respected brand.”
