Provide The Best Marketing Solution for Orthodontists on the Market
In September of 2018, Keaton Walker started working as a marketing manager for a local company in SLC, Utah. After months trying everything under the sun to market this local business, he stumbled upon some amazing results using paid social media ads. With time, he decided to start his own ad agency – his first client was a local Orthodontist!
Tyler Loveall was in the process of becoming an Orthodontist when he met a friend and mentor, Dr. Tyler Coles. Together, they started Ortho Marketing DFY, which Tyler helped scale to 120+ Orthodontic clients worldwide. Throughout this process, Tyler learned from and worked with the marketing teams from Nike, Adidas, Heineken, and the Golden State Warriors. He also helped grow Premier Orthodontics in AZ from 2-7 locations. Suffice it to say, he knows what he’s doing.
Eventually, these two marketing powerhouses started to notice each other going after the same customers! They decided to team up, and Orthopatients as you know it today was born! Our clients are our complete and utter focus, and the field of Orthodontic Marketing will never be the same.

Growing up in a family business made Keaton keenly aware of the problems these types of businesses face on a daily basis. When Keaton discovered digital marketing, he immediately clued into the impact it could have on local service based businesses. Leaning into innovation, he pioneered an easier way for patients and orthodontists to connect: conversational marketing.
Orthopatients.com was born from these truths: Marketing your practice shouldn’t be rocket science, and people should be able to message a business the same way they message a friend.
When it comes to marketing, Tyler has seen it all. He got his start assisting in the growth of an Arizona orthodontic practice from 2-7 locations in under 5 years. Today, with over 7 years of small business and orthodontic marketing experience, he has helped over 200 orthodontic offices grow their practices worldwide. Understanding the human element in marketing, Tyler has mastered what is called “Sales Psychology”. He has researched and developed conversational marketing to better enhance user experience through social media and other marketing platforms.
When not helping orthodontic offices succeed, he enjoys the beautiful Arizona landscape, country-swing dancing with his wife, MarKee, and any off-road adventure. Tyler and MarKee welcomed their first baby girl in September 2020.
