Why Choose an Orthodontist?
About Our Practice
Straighten your teeth with an orthodontist you can trust. Well-known in the Maple Valley and Kent communities as “The Dentist’s Orthodontist,” Dr. Haeger has decades of experience treating dental professionals and adult patients. He has been named Puget Sound’s Top Orthodontist since the award's inception in 2005.
As a board-certified orthodontist, Dr. Haeger has years of expertise in maximizing treatment outcomes and staying up to date with the latest methods in orthodontia. No overselling and no treatments you don’t need. Just the quickest possible method to achieve the results you want.
Dream smiles aren’t one size fits all, so we don’t treat them that way. Once treatment starts, we’ll take a comprehensive look at your needs and preferences. For adults with complex cases, we coordinate with dentists, oral surgeons, and periodontists to get you the smile you want, no matter the severity. Many of our adult patients say “I wish I had done this 20 years ago!” Come and see why.
When you’re getting an important treatment like braces, go to our award-winning, board-certified orthodontist, Dr. Haeger.
Don’t like the look of braces? No problem. Dr. Haeger offers clear braces. This discreet option can fix misalignment issues with the strength and flexibility of traditional braces.
Get a beautiful smile without wires or brackets. Invisalign is a popular, nearly invisible option that comfortably straightens smiles. Dr. Haeger is an Invisalign-certified provider, so you can count on top results.
For adults considering braces, you are not alone! With shorter treatment times and straighter smiles, Dr. Haeger has transformed the orthodontic experience.
Back when Dr. Haeger wore braces, treatment lasted years and felt indeterminate. His experience as a patient inspired him to spearhead treatments and techniques that maximize treatment efficiencies to minimize the time patients spend wearing braces.
Braces treat alignment issues like tooth crowding, gapped teeth, overbites, underbites, and crooked teeth. For those with more complicated needs, we take a multi-disciplinary approach by coordinating with a skilled team of oral surgeons, dentists, and periodontists. No matter the severity of your case, we can find a solution to fit your needs.
Our adult patients often say, “I wish I had done this 20 years ago!” We invite you to find out why.
Achieve your dream smile without metal brackets and wires. Dr. Haeger offers clear braces, a discreet alternative to traditional metal braces. Clear braces are crafted with tooth-colored materials, typically porcelain or ceramic, and blend with your natural smile. Don’t be discouraged by the visibility of traditional braces. Reach out to our team to see if you are a candidate for clear braces.
Let your smile shine during and after treatment with Invisalign! Invisalign is a leading, proven clear aligner treatment that gently pushes teeth into alignment. With quality materials designed for your comfort, Invisalign produces quick, promising results, all while being nearly invisible to patients.
While Invisalign is consistently improving and can treat more complex issues than ever before, there are limitations. With sound judgment, we can determine if Invisalign orthodontic treatment is the right choice for you.
Dr. Haeger has gone through Invisalign orthodontic treatment himself and can happily share his experience with interested patients. Set up a complimentary exam with Invisalign-certified provider, Dr. Haeger, and get started on a beautiful smile.
Typically, to be a candidate for adult orthodontics it’s important to be in good oral health. We will consult with your general dentist and perform an exam before we begin discussing your treatment options.
After your mouth adapts to braces, you will be happy to learn that only about half of the adjustment appointments lead to any discomfort. More good news – adjustment discomfort usually only lasts a couple of days. We like to think of it this way: half of your visits will be basically pain-free!
Braces and Invisalign are different in that braces utilize wires and brackets, and Invisalign is a clear aligner that uses SmartTrack material. With Invisalign, you get more discretion and don’t have to change your diet. However, sometimes braces are needed for severe orthodontic problems.
Wires and brackets can become loose in the mouth and cause irritation. If this is the case, we recommend contacting our team as soon as possible during business hours. However, fallen teeth or a tooth that becomes loose are orthodontic emergencies and you should call us immediately.
