Michael Payne, DMD, MS

Dr. Payne was born and raised in Boise. He had braces as a gawky tween, and really saw the value of a good smile. Apparently, so did Jennifer Swain, a high school classmate, because they started dating shortly after meeting. Following high school, Dr. Payne served a mission for his church in Singapore, Malaysia, and Indonesia. He then finished college at Brigham Young University with honors in Mechanical Engineering. After finishing near the top of his class in dental school in Portland, Oregon and completing an orthodontic residency in Richmond, Virginia, the Payne's decided to go back to their roots. Orthodontics at BridgeTower was opened in 2004.Dr. Payne married his high school sweetheart, Jennifer, in 1994 and they are the proud parents of two daughters and a son (can you guess which are the twins?). His hobbies include tennis, skiing, golf, vacationing, baking, and mountain-biking. Dr. Payne and his family are very happy to be home here in Meridian.)
