Vision

Building on our legacy, we rely on the latest technology and solid educational foundation to provide the highest quality and most comprehensive Orthodontic care available. We artistically design custom smiles for each individual, understanding that a beautiful smile is “more than just straight teeth.” We strive to exceed all of our patients’ expectations by turning ‘braces’ into a fun and memorable experience.

We are sought for our expertise; we influence the industry to lead the discovery of improved techniques and drive a higher standard. We obsess over our customers, not our competitors. We do not cut corners; we pay attention to ensure all endeavors are completed superbly the first time.

We relish the success of personal growth and making a positive difference in the lives of all. We empower our gifted and talented team with the autonomy to be awesome. We proactively work together to adapt to change and discover solutions.

Our Values

Quality

Quality

This is the #1 reason most people choose Molen Orthodontics to design their smile. We are uncompromising in our pursuit of designing natural-looking smiles using the latest technology and most cutting-edge techniques. For example, 3-D x-rays and goo-free digital scanners. We do not cut corners and deliver the same level of care that we would to our own children. For this reason, many local dentists seek us out when their own children are ready for treatment—a fact that we are very proud of.

Expertise

Our doctors are world renowned for their expertise in orthodontics. Combined, our orthodontists have written several peer-reviewed journal papers, textbook chapters, and given over a hundred lectures world-wide on the topic of cutting-edge orthodontics. For example, Dr. Aaron serves on the Technology Editorial Board for the prestigious American Journal of Orthodontics & Dentofacial Orthopedics and was the Chair of the American Association of Orthodontists Committee on Technology.

Reputation

Our orthodontists have earned a reputation for quality and kindness as they’ve served our community. This reputation has been earned over the decades by designing beautiful custom smiles for tens of thousands of patients. We believe that a beautiful smile is the result of combining both artistry and science, and we work hard to design unique, natural-looking smiles for every single one of our patients.

Progressive

Our doctors are not content using old techniques from the past but instead seek out the most progressive and innovative approaches to designing smiles efficiently and as painlessly as possible. We often treat cases that were considered ‘untreatable’ by others and work hard to avoid the unnecessary extraction of healthy adult teeth. In addition to always working to avoid the extraction of healthy adult teeth, we are happy to say that we discontinued the use of headgear over a decade ago! Instead, we embrace more progressive techniques to address ‘overbites’.

Legacy

Dr. Bruce has been designing beautiful smiles since 1972. Dr. Rick, Dr. Aaron, and Dr. Chris have continued this tradition and are thrilled to now treat many third-generation patients. This legacy of quality is the reason grandparents bring in their own grandchildren to Molen Orthodontics—they know they’ll receive the same personal care they received over 45 years ago. Our doctors plan to continue Dr. Molen’s legacy of quality for decades to come.

Recently, our doctors were honored to play a founding role in the development and sponsorship of the new Gordon Family YMCA in Sumner. It’s this deep commitment to our community that creates the personal atmosphere you’ll experience whenever you come in for an appointment at one of our convenient locations. Due to our popularity within the community, our office will often be bustling with people and energy. Rest assured that you will never be treated ‘like a number’ and will always receive personal care.

Beautiful Custom Designed Smiles

We believe that each smile is unique and our doctors design each person’s smile to work in harmony with their facial features. We have worked hard to learn cutting-edge techniques that allow us to create a more natural and curved smile arc instead of the flat smiles typically produced using traditional orthodontic techniques. We have found that though the orthodontic science and technology behind what we do creates the foundation of the smile, it’s our artistic vision and dedication that ultimately brings your inner smile to the surface. Tools like Damon Braces and Invisalign help us to deliver the results we’re known for, however the primary determinant of success is not the tool itself but the artist wielding it. You can guarantee that our doctors will deliver a beautiful custom-designed smile that you’ll love for the rest of your life.

In addition to our artistry, patients and parents choose Molen Orthodontics due to:

  • our reputation for quality results
  • our family legacy & involvement within the community
  • our progressive treatment techniques
  • our recognized expertise within the field of orthodontics

No matter how simple or how challenging your individual case may be, our doctors will take the time to discuss all of your treatment options with you at your FREE initial consultation. You’ll find the fun and welcoming culture at Molen Orthodontics will make going through orthodontic treatment comfortable and enjoyable. Whether you’re 7 or 70, our orthodontists and our fantastic team will ensure you receive the smile you deserve to truly reflect your inner beauty. We stand behind our work and even offer the original lifetime retainer guarantee to ensure your smile stays beautiful forever.

We are proud to say that thanks to the reputation of our doctors, patients travel from all over the region to receive their Molen Magic Smiles. Some from as far away as the Arctic Alaska, Hawaii, the Aleutian Islands, California, Idaho, and beyond.
