Welcome To Whitewater Orthodontic StudiosIn Yelm & Tacoma, WA

At Whitewater Orthodontic Studios, we believe that the essence of good health means helping people—especially children—feel good about themselves, about us, and about others. Orthodontic treatment is more than just straightening teeth. Orthodontics builds self-esteem and self-confidence and will nurture this kind of good health.

Our expert team, led by Dr. Andrew Leavitt, offers a variety of orthodontic treatments tailored to meet your individual needs. Whether it’s Invisalign, clear Lightforce braces, or traditional braces, we’re here to ensure you receive the best care. Join us for a unique orthodontic experience that promises excellence and a warm welcome.

We offer top-tier treatments: 

  • Invisalign: This innovative system straightens teeth without brackets, bands, or wires, making it a discreet and comfortable option for patients.
  • Invisalign for Teens: Teens can straighten their smiles without feeling self-conscious and without food restrictions, making it a popular choice for younger patients.
  • Traditional Braces: Most patients use metal braces to straighten their teeth, as they are the most common type of orthodontic treatment.
  • LightForce Braces: With LightForce’s digital imaging and planning, Dr. Leavitt can design your personalized treatment plan from start to finish with more precision and accuracy than with traditional braces.

In addition to these treatments, Whitewater Orthodontic Studios offers a range of orthodontic appliances, both fixed and removable, to cater to the unique needs of each patient.

Wow! I was recommended this place by a family member. I brought both my boys here for consults (their 3rd consults between here and other ortho offices) and 3 weeks later they were both getting started on their care. My key take aways:1. Not overly busy, so lots of quality time chair side with patients. And it’s not that they aren’t busy, the chairs are always full. They simply have the patient to staff ratio just right.2. The doctor himself called prior to the boys’ consults to introduce himself and see if I had any questions he could answer prior to our first visit. Working in healthcare for 20+ years, I have never worked with a doctor that called themselves.3. They guided me through every aspect of treatment, each type of treatment, and even talked through the financing part of it if I wasn’t able to pay in full.4. Since we had our consult and started treatment on the boys, we have always been welcomed with smiles and enthusiasm.Dr. Drew (aka Dr. Leavitt) has a top tier team here to treat his patients. Thank you, doc & team!

Today, my son enthusiastically rated his appointment at Whitewater Orthodontics with two thumbs up. Becki, his technician for the day, greeted him warmly in the lobby and continued to show genuine interest in him as a patient throughout the appointment. She engaged him in meaningful conversation during his adjustments, proving that it's the little things that truly brighten one's day. Thank you, Becki, for your exceptional care and kindness!

The best ever!! From the staff, office environment, Dr. Leavitt, and everything in between- I am so grateful to have chosen Whitewater Ortho as my family/team. Throughout my entire plan, they’ve been responsive, flexible, and so helpful in learning how to navigate the process. If I can encourage someone, it’s trust the process and care!! It’ll all work out in the end.Strongly encourage that you check them out on social media and/or meet with them in person as you decide your team. You won’t be disappointed. Thank you Dr. Leavitt and team!!

The entire experience is amazing from the consultation, to the visits, and the availability. They are affordable and so flexible. The staff are always so friendly and always have your best interest in mind. I can not thank them enough.

I came in here with low hopes of getting my problem fixed because I had poor experiences with other places . How ever I was very surprised and pleased how well they heard me out, gave me solutions, and worked with me to get my issues fixed rather quickly. Because I’m pregnant, I am not able to get x ray of any kind done due to health risks to baby. Other places said they can only give me solutions with x days; and that I must have my teeth fixed their way only. After coming in here they gave me an alternative that not only saved me money but also my teeth from shifting . They did no X-rays but spent quite some time with me to check my teeth, with tools that were not harmful to my pregnancy. I am so relieved that I got an answer and only in one week I was able to get my retainers and I’m wearing them today for the first time. I’m so happy I can prevent my teeth from shifting and that these doctors were able to help me with this problem. On top of all that they are all so kind. Very optimistic and care for you. I’m definitely going to recommend whitewater orthodontics to my friends and family. Definitely worth coming here! You won’t be disappointed!Observations : clean atmosphere, equipment new, music is not loud, there were adults as well as teens getting work done.It’s not scary here like at the dentist.Appointment wait time: they take you in quicklyFamily friendly atmosphere I was able to bring my 8 month old daughter both times. They were very kind to her .10/10

I love Whitewater orthodontics. I didn’t really think I needed it invisaline but once I started using it and I saw how much straighter my teeth became I’m completely happy. There’s a friendly atmosphere at Whitewater. Everyone’s nice and always has smiles on their faces. They get you in and out in a timely manner and it’s like being with family. I would recommend Whitewater Orthodontics to Everyone.

I went in to get my permanent retainer repaired. This retainer was applied 15 years ago by another orthodontist when I was a kid. Everyone was incredibly nice and helpful. I trusted them to give me guidance on any other treatment I may need in the future. I look forward to my next appointments in the future. Thank you!

I wanted to edit my review because Dr. Leavitt deserves it. I came across this place 4 years ago when I moved here from Florida and needed to have my braces removed because I could not afford treatment any longer. I called and asked for an estimate, saved up the money and made my appointment for removal. When I arrived Dr. Leavitt asked me my reasons, most of which were personal and he offered to fix my smile with no additional cost to me because of all of the years and money I had already spent trying to have the smile I wanted. This made me very emotional. What an amazing soul he has. I got my braces off, had cosmetic dental work done to fix the gaps I had due to incorrect orthodontic care I had done prior to meeting Dr. Leavitt and got my new retainers yesterday. I am sure that without Dr. Leavitt and his AMAZING team none of this would have been possible for me. Thank you for making such a large impact in my life. I will never forget his team and what they've done for me. Now I have the smile I always wanted and I feel so complete. I would recommend this place to anyone 1,000 times over.

We have been using Whitewater Orthodontics, originally Leavitt Orthodontics, since 2012. I had braces as an adult and Dr. Leavitt navigated this as well as jaw surgery halfway through. It was an amazing experience and I love my smile now! My daughter got braces and Invisalign in a 2 part plan with Dr. Leavitt and we couldn’t be more pleased! The team here at Whitewater Orthodontics is like a family and treats us like family too!

I've had two children get braces here over the course of the last few years. We started in their Yelm location and have since moved to their Parkland location. The staff is always friendly and so accommodating to us and our chaotic schedules. Unfortunately, due to a split household we have several scheduling conflicts but the staff never makes me feel bad about it. I even arrived several hours too early to one appointment at my own error and they got my kiddo seen anyway. We utilized their payment plans in the beginning and they were very budget friendly. We suffered no penalties for paying off early. We have had great experiences here. My first child's teeth look amazing and we are now approaching the end with our second child. Thank you for all the wonderful care over the years!
