Dr. Kirk Round received his dental degree from Tufts University School of Dental Medicine in Boston, MA. While there, Dr. Round was a founder of the Orthodontic and Oral & Maxillofacial surgery clubs, as well as a charter member of the Green Initiative, which worked on incorporating environmental awareness into the medical field.
After dental school, Dr. Round attended the world renowned Orthodontic program at the University of Rochester, and earned his post-doctoral certificate in Orthodontics. His research there focused on the effects of tooth movement on patient's soft tissue profiles, and provided him a solid foundation in biomechanics, which underlie all orthodontic treatment.
Dr. Round is a member of the American Association of Orthodontists, and board eligible for the American Board of Orthodontics. Born and raised in Connecticut, he graduated with a degree in Political Science from the University of Connecticut after serving four years in the United States Marine Corps.
After practicing for several years in Connecticut, he and his wife have chosen to be closer to family here in the midcoast. They were married this past June (2016), and his wife Liv LiaBraaten is from the midcoast region. They are excited to be permanently back in the area.
He frequently attends conferences to keep up-to-date on the latest orthodontic innovations, allowing him to further stay current with the latest technique and technology to provide the best patient care.
Outside of working to improve the smiles of children and adults alike, Dr. Round enjoys woodworking, sailing, and is an avid outdoorsman. He is excited to join the MCO family, and share his positive and fun approach to orthodontics with his patients.
