We can hardly believe it ourselves – we’ve been working in the Brookings community for thirty years! To celebrate, we’ve put together a fun list of what else was going on 30 years ago.

  • Top Gun opened #1 at the box office.
  • Geraldo Rivera opened Al Capone’s vault.
  • Brookings’ own George Mickelson opened an insurmountable lead in his gubernatorial race against Lars Herseth.
  • Dr. David Meyer opened his orthodontic practice in Brookings, SD.
  • Halley’s Comet lit up the sky.
  • Oprah Winfrey lit up the Nielson ratings for syndicated afternoon television.
  • Brookings Telephone lit up tempers by raising the cost of a phone booth call from 10 cents to 25 cents.
  • Dr. David Meyer lit up Brookings, SD with his orthodontic practice.
  • Paul Simon released his hit album, Graceland.
  • The Chicago Bears released the music video for their hit single, “The Superbowl Shuffle.”
  • Nick’s released more of their hit hamburgers, one at a time, for 80 cents apiece.
  • Dr. David Meyer released his hit practice, Meyer Orthodontics, in Brookings, SD.

What have we been doing these past 30 years? We’ve been busy — about 6000 smiles busy. That’s about 150,000 teeth straightened.

Thanks for making our time in the community so memorable. We look forward to many more years in Brookings and Madison!
