Creating beautiful smiles, working with patients of all ages, and being part of a wonderful team all make being an orthodontist so special. Beyond providing excellent care, I strive to create an enjoyable experience, build lasting relationships, and be involved in the surrounding community. Watching my patients grow and seeing what they accomplish in all aspects of their lives throughout treatment (and beyond!) is the most rewarding part of my career.-Dr. Hagel

Dr. Lauren Hagel

Education & Continuing Education

Following graduation, Dr. Lauren was honored to stay at the University of Washington, where she earned her Master of Science Degree in Dentistry and Certificate in Orthodontics.
