Keyser Orthodontics

Serving the Triangle for 3O+ Years

Formerly Buckthal Orthodontics, Dr. Keyser is thrilled to carry on the legacy of Dr. James Buckthal. Drs. Keyser and Buckthal worked together from 2021-2023 to welcome Dr. Keyser and transition Dr. Buckthal into a well deserved retirement!

The comfortable and welcoming environment at Keyser Orthodontics, with amenities such as a patient fridge with seltzer waters, a coffee/tea bar in the lobby, and a children’s corner with coloring and games, reflects our practice’s commitment to providing a boutique, personalized, and family-friendly atmosphere. Serving not only Raleigh and Knightdale but also extending expertise to the greater Triangle, working with patients from Durham, Chapel Hill, Wendell Falls, Zebulon, and Clayton. Dr. Keyser and the team at Keyser Orthodontics invite you to experience the perfect blend of expertise, warmth, and a touch of classic charm in your oral health journey.

I absolutely loved my experience with Keyser Orthodontics. They guided this 50 year old through Invisalign with wonderful care, kindness, ease and expertise. I had a complicated case and Dr. Keyser was amazing. The entire staff is lovely to work with. Thank you so much!!

our skyscrapers

Our Values (aka Skyscrapers) —we believe many components make up a skyline, but there are certain things that stand tall above the rest, and we always want these skyscrapers to be in your view of our practice!


As Dr. Keyser says daily, “We treat each patient like a member of our family.” Your treatment will be customized for you, and we will always review options and recommendations and specialize each treatment plan for our patients. We will also personalize your payment plan to make care affordable for you—we accept most insurance plans and offer in-house interest-free financing.

QC (Quality and Consistency)

We want you to expect both when you come to our office. Dr. Kesyer is board-certified and will be with you every step of the treatment journey. Having one doctor in our doctor-owned office ensures these values are at the forefront. We provide quality care that exceeds your expectations in an orthodontic experience—from the latest technology to the best possible smile result— and consistency in this quality each time you visit us!


Our office mantra of “Live Life Smiling” is the way we approach each day. We want to celebrate with you! Not only your smile journey but your birthdays, your weddings, and your day-to-day joys—we’re celebrating alongside you!


We know the triangle is growing, and we love our communities in Raleigh and Knightdale. We feel that in an ever-expanding community, you shouldn’t have to compromise on the “small town” feel of receiving care in a timely, personal, and family-centered environment. We strive to make ourselves accessible to you and your schedule. And we love supporting our neighborhoods, schools, families, and patients because we count ourselves lucky to be serving our community!
