Start Your New Smile

At Whitewater Orthodontic Studios in Lacey, Lakewood, and Yelm, WA, we believe that your first orthodontic visit is your most important one.

The first visit to a doctor’s office can sometimes seem intimidating, especially for kids. But, your first visit to Whitewater Orthodontic Studios will be completely painless.

You’ll be welcomed by our team, introduced to our orthodontist Dr. Leavitt and shown around our office. Our highly-trained, orthodontic treatment coordinator will then take some digital photographs of your teeth. If necessary, a panoramic and cephalometric X-ray. These images are the best way for us to see your teeth, jaws, and facial soft tissue.

After reviewing these records, Dr. Leavitt will join you in a private consultation room to discuss your individualized and unique treatment plan. Dr. Leavitt will point out specific areas of concern and show you what kind of corrections you can expect by showing photos and videos of similar cases.

He will take as much time as needed to answer your questions and decide what kind of treatment is best for you. Dr. Leavitt and his assistant will then walk you through the process. They will explain everything from scheduling to expected discomfort levels, to finances and payment options.

Our goal is to make sure that no question goes unanswered.
