Auctions :: School Fundraiser :: Smiles By Sutherland; OrthodontistPuyallup WA

We at Smiles By Sutherland love to give back to the community. One of the ways we accomplish that is by helping schools in their fund-raising efforts for future programs and enhancements.  Many schools have students that are patients in our office; these patients often ask Dr. Sutherland for support in their schools and activities. Auctions are one way that we participate! We generally provide an auction basket that contain fun tangible items as well as a certificate that can be applied towards the start of new orthodontic treatment in our office.

What is Invisalign? :: Smiles By Sutherland :: Puyallup, WA Orthodontist

Q. I keep hearing about Invisalign®; what is it and will it work for me?

A. Invisalign is the clear alternative to braces.  Developed with orthodontists, Invisalign is a nearly invisible solution to straightening your teeth. By using a series of clear, removable aligners, Invisalign gradually guides your teeth into the correct positions. As you change the aligners, about every two weeks, your teeth will move into alignment. The aligners are removable, so you can take them out to eat and brush. It is now possible to correct some difficult bites that previously required braces by wearing clear elastics with some of the Invisalign aligners. If you want to find out if Invisalign is right for you, give us a call at 253-848-4537 to schedule a complimentary consultation. Our office is conveniently located in downtown Puyallup.  For more information about our office visit us on the web at
