Check out what some of our happy patients are saying about us:

Dr. Doppel and her team were fantastic. They got me in with no wait (especially helpful during the workday), and were really friendly. Dr. Doppel is really sweet and clearly very good at what she does. We chatted for a few minutes, then she quickly fixed my retainer issue and I was out in about 20 minutes. Since not all of the procedure was covered by insurance, I also had to be aware of costs. I learned that Dr. Doppel’s office was slightly cheaper than another office I visited, which was another perk. Overall, couldn’t be more pleased.

We have had nothing but fantastic service at Dr. Doppel’s office. We feel very well informed on all the processes we are going through and everyone in the office is very friendly and helpful. There have been a few times where we had to change appointment times and they have been nothing but accommodating. I highly recommend Dr. Doppel, she has a warm bed side manner so to speak and very informative.

I highly recommend Dr. Doppel. From the very first time I took 7 year old, snaggly toothed older daughter to see her to the present day Dr. Doppel has been awesome. She speaks to my kids directly but with humor, explaining the ins and outs of each procedure. She’s patient when they’re nervous, solicitous for their comfort and so good at what she does. Most of her patients are adults, because of her downtown location, but Dr. Doppel is really great with kids. Totally worth the drive downtown. And her office chips in for parking! Thanks to Dr. Doppel and her staff for their wonderful work.

I transferred to Dr. Doppel after my previous orthodontist in Redmond went out of business. I’m now almost done (just need retainers, but will have to get them from another orthodontist as I recently moved to the east coast – right before my last appointment with Dr. Doppel, unfortunately). I have to say I’m very happy with the results overall – my teeth look almost perfect. My prior orthodontist had made some mistakes (IMO) like not placing brackets on some of my teeth, which caused them to move, but Dr. Doppel was able to correct that. Dr. Doppel is very friendly, competent and detail-oriented. She listens to your concerns and explains everything in detail. Really the whole staff (Katie, Lindsey, etc.) is amazing. They’re very efficient – appointments are quick and there is never any wait. They are also often able to get you in on the same day if something breaks (like a bracket). The office is modern, bright and clean. They do everything from conventional braces to Invisalign. As others have mentioned, most of the patients are adults. I would definitely recommend this orthodontist.

I was referred to Dr. Doppel by another patient and I would highly recommend Dr. Doppel and her team. Always prompt, reliable, efficient and professional. It took a little longer to strive for my standard of perfection and Dr. Doppel patiently spent the time to see it through. I am thoroughly happy with the outcome and was able to make space for an implant. My teenager nephew also had his teeth adjusted with Dr. Doppel and it was efficiently done in a short time. Thank you Dr. Doppel and your team for your warm welcome with each visit. I’ll miss seeing you.

I just finished my treatment with Dr. Doppel and couldn’t be happier! I had braces as a kid, never wore my retainers, and then at 25 decided to do something about it. This time I was paying for it myself (yuck!) so I wanted to make sure I had it done right (and I swear I’ll wear my retainers this time). Dr. Doppel did a great job on my invisalign. My teeth look absolutely great, and I’m so happy with how they came out. I was very skeptical to spend so much money on my teeth, but I couldn’t be happier that I did. I will also say that the entire staff is very helpful. I have a crazy travel schedule, and they were so great to work with me to find appointment times that worked, give me additional invisalign trays as needed, etc. Also, this was one of the first times I had to deal with lots of insurance things and Erin was so great at helping me. My insurance also changed throughout the treatment, and she tried to help me get the maximum benefit possible, and continually communicated with me about my coverage. If you have to go through orthodontia, this is definitely a place I would recommend to everyone!

April G. from Seattle, WA (Source: Yelp)


A couple months ago my permanent retainer fell out….uh oh. The thing was solid in there for so many years my old orthodontist died in the time between long long ago and now. No other orthodontist would get me in. Dr. Doppel got me in, saw that my dentist had placed it, checked the placement and had me come back 6 weeks later to insure my bite wasn’t off. I will for sure yell her names form the rooftops anyone asks for recommendations. Her staff is professional and courteous, her office is top of the line, and she is friendly and knowledgeable.

Everyone at Pacific Orthodontics (Danielle, Katie, Dr. Doppel, etc) made the course of my Invisalign treatment very easy! I’m really happy with the results, and they all took such good care of me during the past year. They’re friendly, efficient, flexible, and invested in their patients. Would definitely recommend!

The entire team at Pacific Orthodontics is amazing. First rate and professional about everything! My son actually likes going to the ortho. We travel a bit to get there and the staff is always flexible and get us right in for our monthly adjustment. My older two kids went to a local ortho that was good and actually cost less but we wanted to try something different. Pac Ortho is just better; better technology and all of the above.

Alisa W. from Seattle, WA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Doppel is the best! I had terribly crooked teeth as a child, and went to her for braces as a teenager. Her care, attentiveness, and joyful personality made the whole experience as good as it could be. Ten years later, I had my first issue with a broken permanent retainer, and was able to get right in to see her and have it fixed. Dr. Doppel and her staff were as great as ever, and I was in and out within a half hour with a great new retainer! My teeth are still straight as an adult, and I’d recommend her to anyone!

Sasan D. from Manhattan, NY (Source: Yelp)


I’ve been a patient of Dr Doppel’s since June (or July) or 2005. I was 28 at the time. They put braces on my teeth (which was the only time I’ve had braces in my life.) The staff and the doctor are very friendly. They decided to take my braces off in Feb of 2008, but have continued to schedule me for more appointments to make sure that my teeth don’t move back to their initial compacted state. I have a feeling that they will continue to see me until we make sure that my teeth are stable in their place, and I’m extremely grateful for their level of commitment. BTW, theymoved to the 9th floor of the building at 720 Olive Way a couple of years ago. The address on Yelp is no longer valid.

Dr. Doppel and her staff create such a welcoming environment. I felt comfortable from the beginning asking all the questions I needed to from payments to procedures. My teeth look amazing now and I couldn’t be more happy. Every time during the process I was able to have open communication with the staff in regards to the progress of my teeth. I couldn’t be more pleased with the customer obsession I received and the kindness of the lovely staff there. I highly recommend Dr. Doppel not only for convenience of being downtown and close to my work but because I didn’t feel like a number there, I felt like a friend. The staff would always remember our conversations from my last appointment even when there were months between.

Robert M. from Seattle, WA (Source: Yelp)


When I found that at age 37 I needed to have braces (again!) I searched for the most professional office I could find, and I did this on my own. Guess what? I found it! Dr. Doppel’s office is staffed with professional, courteous, knowledgeable and down right nice people. The best part is that over 80% of her clientele are adults! Now that is hard to find and certainly makes it more comfortable when you are sitting in a chair next to someone your own age and not 12. This is not the least expensive office you will find, so if price is all you are after, this is not likely the place for you, however, if you are looking for top notch, professional service with years of experience to back it up, This is likely one of few offices that you will be pleased with.

Debra Groth (Source: Facebook)


I will confess that I was hesitant about getting braces at my age, but everyone I encountered at Pacific Orthodontics, from the receptionist to Dr. Doppel herself, was wonderful and encouraging. I’m so happy I did this and so grateful it was with Dr. Doppel.

Dr Doppel and her staff are always professional, courteous, and in tune to my wants and needs as a patient! I always feel well taken care of and know that I am getting the best possible orthodontic treatment available. They are all so friendly and I feel like I am treated more like a family member than a patient. Being in the dental field my self and doing all my research before choosing my orthodontist, it was no question who I was going to choose for my treatment . Thank you Dr Doppel and staff for my PERFECT smile !

I LOVE MY SMILE, thank you all the great people at PACIFIC ORTHODONTIST. I now have that confident smile that I’ve always wanted. The staff that Dr. Doppel has, makes this practice what it is. Hard working, experienced people, with the drive and love of what they do. The love, laughter, and experience makes coming to this office a joy. I would totally recommend Pacific Orthodontist for your smile, and tell them Ricky sent you. Ricky M.

Dr. Doppel and her staff are very professional and also fun! They all make you feel at ease. Dr. Doppel explained everything that needed to be done in detail, I was told how much my insurance would cover and what I would owe so there were no surprises. Your bite, teeth and smile will be perfection. Mine are and I have Dr. Dopple to thank! If anyone in your family needs braces I would highly recommend Dr. Doppel!

Alfonso B. from Seattle, WA (Source: Yelp)


I’ve been a patient of Dr. Doppel’s for about 4 years, including 1 year of Invisalign and 3 years of occasional checkups. I met with 3 of the most experienced orthodontists in Seattle[1] (and considered many more to reduce the set to 3) before choosing Dr. Doppel. Based on my experience as a patient, I believe she’s the most skilled orthodontist in the area and separately, her and her team provide the best overall care. I’m thrilled with the end result and the process. She cares about every last detail and it shows. I didn’t have any pain during the treatment. Billing, scheduling, retainer replacement, and followup care was easy and exactly as described to me before I started treatment. The 3D mouth imaging they used was easier and more accurate than bite molds, and seeing a rendered version of my entire mouth with the planned teeth movements was helpful. Aside from being a fantastic orthodontist, she’s an incredibly nice person and the office atmosphere is uplifting. That made a bigger difference than I expected because I actually enjoy the visits. I’d gladly sit in the office just to chat with her and the dental assistants. In about 25 visits over 4 years, I don’t ever remember waiting more than 5 minutes for my treatment to start. The entire team is on the ball. I think that’s at least partly because it’s how Dr. Doppel herself operates, so any less from anyone else would stand out. I can’t imagine a better overall treatment. I don’t have kids, but if I did, I’d bring them here. [1]: Based on aspects like experience/number of cases using Invisalign to solve my type of bite problem, board certification, participation in dental study groups, university affiliation, and peer opinion (using Seattle Met magazine as a coarse proxy).

I could not recommend Dr. Doppel enough. Her staff is absolutely amazing, friendly, and professional. Words couldn’t justify how thankful I am to have seen them. They’ve given me a reason to smile again (without being self-conscious about it)!

Daniela Borchmann (Source: Google)


I just LOVE this practice! Apart from the clear expertise and experience in what she does, Dr. Doppel is a caring, engaged, and empathetic healthcare professional. So is the whole team! They are able to create a positive and warm atmosphere with every visit that makes patients feel calm and cared for. I‘m so thankful I found them!

AMAZING EXPERIENCE with Dr Doppel! My daughter had an orthodontic emergency while we were visiting Seattle. Dr Doppel came in on a Saturday to help us even thought she had never even met us! She was so professional, as well as very knowledgeable and skilled with the advanced appliance that broke. Not only did she help with the broken appliance, she made some adjustments to the braces to make my daughter even more comfortable. We were so lucky to find her!!! I would recommend her office in a heartbeat!

Erik S. Seattle, WA (Source: Yelp)


After what was a frustrating on boarding process as a new patient owing to an appointment email gone awry, I am delighted to say that I am very please with my new orthodontist and her team of professionals. Today during my initial consultation I was given exhaustive explanation of orthodontic processes, my treatment options, and answers to my many braces related questions. I have every confidence that Pacific Orthodontics is the very best partner I could have for what will be the long process of uncrowding a few lower teeth. Based on what I experienced today, I am certain the path forward will be “painless” and will produce excellent results.

Experience could not have been better. I was new in town and had a retainer break. This office was able to see me the same day and had a new retainer ready for me within 24 hours. The staff was super friendly, the office is beautiful, and there’s a great view of Seattle while you’re in the chair

I love Dr. Doppel and her whole staff! I did consultations at three other ortho offices before Pacific Orthodontics and there is no comparison, it is the most comfortable and patient oriented atmosphere around. The front desk always remembers my name, the financial gal was very helpful and accommodating and the hygienists are always gentle and informative. Dr. Doppel is always upbeat and optimistic about my treatment plan. It feels like I’m visiting friends every time I’m in! I have multiple co-workers and friends who are now taking the next steps to their ortho care at Pacific Orthodontics after seeing how how happy I am!

I’ve seen a couple orthodontists for retainers since my childhood orthodontist retired and I wish I’d started with Dr. Doppel. I’d gotten my teeth whitened by a dentist back in 2011 (horrid idea, don’t do it) and they discovered flourosis on my teeth (it looks like white spots everywhere). My dentist was like “Oh, well there’s nothing we can do about it.” At my next appointment for my retainer, I mentioned the change to Dr. Doppel and she recommended a special paste for me. After a couple months, the bright white spots were practically gone. She listens to your concerns about your smile and really tries to get you the best help possible. If she refers someone to you, take her advice. I changed to Dr. Larsen at South Lake Union dentistry on her referral and have had zero problems. I’ve had a couple retainers and mouthguards done by her office now and they’re perfect each time. She’s quick and her office is very flexible with scheduling. They have in-house x-ray and even videogames in the lobby if someone is waiting for you to finish. All in all, great doctor, efficient office and wonderful bedside manner.

I went to Dr. Doppel for my orthodontics work a few years back and I was so impressed with her and her staff that I sent my daughters to her for their orthodontics work too. My daughters and I cannot be happier with the results. The office is well run and the whole experience has been great. Very highly recommended.

It’s the best experience you could possibly have with braces. The office is beautiful and clean. The front desk always remembers you. The staff is fun, friendly and comforting. And Dr. Doppel is The most upbeat nicest Doctor. Her energy just makes you feel good. It’s an all around positive experience for adults and children.

Nicola L. from Seattle, WA (Source: Yelp)


About six years ago, I decided to have my teeth and bite ‘fixed’. After some research, I decided to visit Dr Doppel’s office. Diane discovered that I had a serious gum disease and she recommended me to see other specialists first: I had to wait over a year before she could start the orthodontic treatment. I am so glad I followed her advices. I had my braces removed two years ago and I am very happy with the results. This office is kid friendly (they offer video games in the waiting room) but most of the clientele are adults. If you are not in your teens and you need brace, this is the right place for you. The staff is nice, friendly and professional and the office is modern, clean, and efficient. If you need braces, go for a consultation: I am confident that you will choose this office!

Dr. Dopple was highly recommended to me by two individuals that I trust. My regular Dentist had recommended that I look into braces because of a problematic bite that had the potential of breaking teeth. I was 68 years old when I met Dr. Dopple and was more than a bit hesitant to start this process at my age. Dr. Dopple and her entire staff were very professional and kind. I was confidant after my first appointment that this was something that would benefit me and that I wanted to go forward. My age was never a concern to me again and I was happy that I made this decision at such a “wise” age. As far as logistics go, they got me into every appointment on time or early. Her office is near to many bus lines for easy access. The staff took care of all coordination between my regular dentist to minimize my appointment trips. They stayed in close contact with my dentist throughout the entire process (20 months). I can’t think of a thing they could have done to make it any easier, safer, or better.

I had the pleasure of getting to know Dr. Diane Doppel and her wonderful team at Pacific Orthodontics this past year when I was referred to Dr. Doppel for my orthodontic treatment. I love my new smile and the kind and compassionate care I received during my treatment. I highly recommend Pacific Orthodontics!
