Dr. Melani Fulton

Our office has a long tradition of providing high-quality dental care in West Des Moines and surrounding communities under the original name and former owner Dan Todd, DDS. Known for his high-quality dentistry and quirky nature, Dr. Dan Todd started the dental practice almost 40 years ago.

Dr. Dan retired in April of 2021 selecting Dr. Melani Fulton to take over his legacy.  While the name has changed to Brighter Smiles Family Dentistry, the practice is still locally owned and operated by Dr. Fulton. She is committed to the same high-quality and patient-centered dentistry in which this practice was founded. If you are one of our many long-time patients, you will notice that the friendly staff are all still here to greet you and address your dental needs.
