Welcome Dr. Ethan Larson :: Smiles By Sutherland; Puyallup WaOrthodontist

It is with great enthusiasm I introduce to you our associate, Dr. Ethan Larson. Dr. Larson is originally from the Northwest, growing up in Bothell, Washington. After earning a B.A. in Biology from Covenant College he attended the University of Alabama Dental School where he received his doctorate degree. Dr. Larson was among a very select few chosen to continue post Graduate Education in Orthodontics. Three more years of intense Orthodontic Residency provided Dr. Larson with a post doctoral degree, specifically a master degree (M.S.) in Oral Biology and a certificate of Specialty in Orthodontics.

Dr. Larson and his wife Dolly have four children: Ruthie, Chandler, Olivia, and Austin. They love playing board games and riding bikes with their kids. The family looks forward to many outdoor activities the Northwest has to offer. The Larson's eagerly anticipate living out their faith in Christ in a local church and in the Puyallup Community.

I am certain you will enjoy his warm, welcoming personality and appreciate his commitment to excellent orthodontic care that our patients have come to expect at Smiles by Sutherland. Please join us in welcoming Dr. Ethan Larson.

This raises a question will I retire soon? The answer is eventually, but it will be a few years not a few months. The truth is I love what I do and very much enjoy working with my staff to give our patients great Smiles by Sutherland.

School Tours :: February :: National Dental Health Month :: Smiles BySutherland; Puyallup Orthdontist

We celebrated over 30+ years of school tours this year. If you are not familiar with the term “School Tours” let us share with you what it is all about! During Dental Health Month (February) our Smiles by Sutherland School Tours team(s) goes to different schools to educate primary students about basic oral hygiene and how the importance of taking care of your teeth goes a long way for your health.  It is a thirty minute presentation and at the end of the presentation we provide the kids with a toothbrush, toothpaste, floss, disclosing tablets, something fun such as a magnet, and a brochure on some info on orthodontic options.

This year we decided to implement an interactive program with the classes that they can participate in until May; and in which we hope they will carry on throughout their entire life. The program is called a “3-B Challenge”. The 3-B’s stand for Beautiful, Before, and Brushers. We emphasized to the students that they are already beautiful (the boys had a hard time with this, they mentioned they are handsome), and one way to always remain beautiful (or handsome), is by having awesome smiles. Therefore, the Before Brushers part comes in when they brush before they go to school or after breakfast and before bedtime. The challenge is from March until May 2011. All the classes that participated in school tours this year are then put into a drawing for a pizza party!
