Every year the Seattle MET Magazine Publishes a list of the Top Dentist and Orthodontist in the Seattle area. This year, Molen Orthodontics was honored to receive this award for our 13th consecutive year! When Dr. Molen started Molen Orthodontics in 1972, the focus has always been our patients, and continuing on with his “Legacy of Excellence” we have the same mission and focus today.

In addition to taking great care of our orthodontic patients, we consistently foster great relationships with our industry neighbors. Local Dental offices, Surgeons, and other Doctors know that they can rely on us to provide the best care to our patients alike. These solid relationships make shared patient care easier providing peace of mind of the patient and increased trust in their providers.

You might ask, why is an award like this so special? Because it’s a peer award – doctors are selected by other doctors who understand and appreciate the excellence of their work!

How Does A Dentist Become a Top Doctor?

Ballots are sent to dentists listed with the American Dental Association in King, Snohomish, Kitsap and Pierce counties. They are asked “If you had a patient in need of a dentist, which dentist would you refer them to?” Each general dentist evaluated specialists and specialists evaluated general dentists whose work they are familiar with based on:

  • Years of experience
  • Continuing education
  • Manner with patients
  • Use of new techniques and technologies
  • Results

Hearing the stories from our happy patients is priceless and music to our ears! Take a closer look at the Ritter Family’s orthodontic story and how their journey to our office started with a dentist recommendation to give us a visit! We’d like to give all of our industry partners a huge “THANK YOU” for this award and for making this a reality.
