Gig harbor orthodontist did magic on my teeth quite literally. My teeth were so crowded in the front and bottom. They were super nice and friendly everytime I saw them. I had moved a lot and they even accommodated to my wild schedule. I highly recommend going here.

Dr. Alatsis is an amazing orthodontist. She is very knowledgeable about the process, and very good at explaining the process and outcomes to others. I admire that she looks beyond the immediate issue and takes into consideration what is to come and how that plays into our child’s health. There is probably not enough space in this review form to explain our examples, but I will tell you, I trust Dr. Alatsis’s insight and direction with all three of my boys. I can’t end this without also mentioning that the rest of the staff is a joy to see each visit.
