Meet Our Orthodontist
Introducing Dr. Silas “Si” Dudley!
Dr. Silas Dudley was inspired by his own dentists and his mother, a dental hygienist, to become an orthodontist ever since he was 12 years old. Nothing makes him happier than taking off a patient’s braces at the end of their treatment and seeing them so overwhelmed with happiness at the positive results!
After attending Pepperdine University for his undergraduate degree, Dr. Dudley continued on to the University of the Pacific Arthur A. Dugoni School of Dentistry for his Doctorate of Dental Surgery. He completed his special orthodontic training at the University of Colorado School of Dental Medicine, earning an Orthodontic Certificate and Master of Science in Dentistry.
Upon graduation from the University of Colorado, he moved with his wife back to the Pacific Northwest. He has been a private practice orthodontist since 2012.
A native of Mercer Island, he now lives with his wife and three children in the nearby city of Sammamish.
Dr. Dudley’s Dedication to His Patients
Dr. Dudley believes that orthodontic treatment can be embraced at any age, allowing a fresh start for your smile whenever you are ready to begin. He has seen his patient’s quality of life and confidence improve over their series of visits with him and our team. He credits his own orthodontist with changing his life for the better at an early age and hopes to share that same positivity with his patients!
Dr. Dudley’s Role In Providing For Your Health
The Job of an Orthodontist
An orthodontist is an oral healthcare provider specializing in the correction of teeth and jaw alignment. Aided by our fantastic team of experts, Dr. Dudley relies on our orthodontic assistants, patient and treatment coordinators, receptionists, and financial coordinators. They help keep the office running as smoothly as it does, as we all help to provide the best care to our patients.
Common orthodontic services we provide at Dudley Smiles include metal and ceramic braces as well as clear aligners, such as Spark & Invisalign! Our goal is to help you feel more confident in your smile through high-quality treatment plans and expert care. With Dudley Smiles, you have multiple options to straighten your smile successfully.
