“Orthodontics is incredibly rewarding, and there is no better feeling that seeing a patient’s smile beam when their treatment is complete. I was attracted to orthodontics because of the positive and lasting change orthodontics can make in a person’s self-esteem. A great smile shows confidence and can have such a positive impact on your entire life. I truly love what I do, and feel so blessed to have formed so many wonderful relationships with my patients, families and community.” – Nadine Egger, DDS, MSD, PC
It’s no secret that I have two of the best jobs in the world. First, of course, is being a mom to three wonderful children (who aren’t really children anymore!). Second only to raising my kids is my longstanding love for Dentistry. This passion is deep-rooted and has, for as long as I can remember, been a way of being for me. Creating healthy smiles is second nature and it is the greatest privilege to make such a tremendous impact on the lives of families, seeing their worlds transform as their smiles come alive! My patients quickly become family and I welcome every opportunity to treat them as I would my own. I pride myself on exceeding patient expectations in both quality care and remarkable outcomes. PEOPLE WHO SMILE LIVE LONGER!
I feel fortunate to continue in the footsteps of my father in the field of Orthodontics. My training began in his office at the age of 14 where I worked as an assistant and laboratory technician. I received my doctorate in Dental Science (DDS) in 1988 from the University of Washington. Upon graduation, I worked for the Public Health Service in Alaska and Washington State for two years. It was then that I returned to the University of Washington to earn my Certificate of Proficiency in Orthodontics and Masters of Science in Dentistry (MSD). I have been passionately serving the community in private practice since 1992.
What an exciting time to be practicing orthodontics! The field of orthodontics is constantly changing, with new treatments and technology appearing every day. I can say without a doubt that I don’t treat patients the way I did 20 years ago. Our office remains at the forefront of orthodontic knowledge and techniques through continuous study, lectures, and collaborations with the medical community. Our knowledge is widespread and includes expertise in dental, laboratory, and orthodontic work. By regularly participating in continuing education in all of the above, we are able to provide a higher level of patient care and accelerated treatment.
