We Make Getting Braces Fun

We want your experience at our office to be fun and stress-free.  Getting braces doesn’t have to be scary.  We strive to make our patients feel relaxed and welcomed.  We’ll take care of the details.

Outstanding Training & Experience

Dr. Dan Schruth and Dr. Irena Baker are specialists in the field of orthodontics and have been practicing in this area of dentistry for many years.  Orthodontic specialty certification requires at least two more years of full-time residency training beyond dental school.  Dr. Dan Schruth received his orthodontic specialty training at Vanderbilt University Medical Center and Dr. Baker received her residency training at the University of Louisville.  Our orthodontists have treated a broad spectrum of orthodontic challenges including skeletal jaw discrepancies, cleft palates, growth asymmetries and deficiencies, and comprehensive dental cases.  

In addition to treating patients at the office, Dr. Baker has served as a faculty member at the University of Washington Department of Orthodontics for 23 years.  Dr. Schruth recently had the honor of interviewing candidates at the University of Washington Dental School.  Our orthodontists are experts in their field, have a passion for lifelong learning, and are committed to providing clinical excellence.
