Dr. Robert Meister
Orthodontist & Owner
I graduated from Loma Linda University, School of Dentistry in 1978 before obtaining my master’s degree in Orthodontics and Facial Orthopedics in 1984. I have been practicing orthodontics in Orange County for over 30 years and currently operate successful offices in both Laguna Hills and Rancho Santa Margarita. Since starting my practice in Orange County, I have been privileged to treat more than 7,000 patients.
Volunteer Service and Professional Advocacy
I care deeply about supporting and furthering the profession of orthodontics, and throughout my career, I have volunteered my time in leadership roles for several professional organizations in both California and throughout the western United States. I am currently the president-elect for the Pacific Coast Society of Orthodontists (PCSO). The PCSO provides state of the art training for both orthodontists and their team members in order to facilitate a safe, informed, and efficient treatment experience for patients. I have also served as a delegate in the House of Delegates for the American Association of Orthodontists for more than 8 years, and I am a past president of the California Association of Orthodontists.
I am passionate about staying current on the latest innovations in orthodontics. I help manage the Academy for Orthodontic Excellence, a study club that brings in speakers from throughout the world to update local orthodontists on the newest techniques in efficient treatment. I also attend the annual orthodontic society meetings of both the Pacific Coast Society of Orthodontists and the American Association of Orthodontists.
For over six years, I have been honored to serve as an Associate Professor of Orthodontics at my alma mater, Loma Linda University, School of Dentistry. In this role, I enjoy guiding the next generation of orthodontists through their residency programs and instilling in them the skills and values of the profession that I hold dear. I was humbled to recently be recognized by fellow faculty and my students for my commitment to orthodontic education.
I live in Laguna Niguel with Carolyn, my wonderful wife of 39 years. We have three grown children. Our sons Dustin and Blake reside and work in southern California. Our daughter Alyssa is currently practicing dentistry in Fort Lewis, WA, where she serves as an officer in the U.S. Army. Alyssa is a fellow graduate of Loma Linda University, School of Dentistry, and I was honored to present her with her diploma last year. Carolyn and I look forward to welcoming our first grandchild in December. In my spare time, I enjoy skiing, golfing, paddle-boarding, and pretty much anything else that I can do outdoors.
