Happily improving the lives of adults and kids, one smile at a time.

At Ballard Orthodontics, our passion for quality healthcare is only surpassed by our passion for our patients. Come see why so many area dentists refer us.

The Difference

Being passionate about patients doesn’t simply mean attitude, it also includes best-in-class treatment options. No messy molds here; every consultation includes a quick 4 minute 3D teeth scan and a computer simulated before and after. When you add no-interest financing and flexible payment plans, it’s easy to see why our patients refer us so often.

Ballard Community

Located off Market Street in the heart of the Ballard neighborhood of Seattle, we are fortunate to serve our community both through orthodontics services as well as sponsorships. To date, we are proud to have partnered with Ballard Cheer, Ballard Junior Football, Ballard Little League, Ballard Youth Soccer, Magnolia Soccer, Hamilton Middle School, Pacific Crest School, St. Alphonsus School, West Woodland Elementary, and Salmon Bay K-8 School.
