“I feel truly blessed to be able to do what I do for a living. Helping people, making them smile, and giving them self-confidence has been fulfilling in ways I never could have imagined. It is my goal to provide each patient with the best possible treatment outcome. What they give me in return—their trust and appreciation—is an even better gift.” – Dr. Wagner
The son of an orthodontist, Dr. Peter Wagner chose to follow in his father’s footsteps and pursued his orthodontic training at Oregon Health Science University. Prior to earning his Doctorate of Dental Medicine and specialty in orthodontics, he attended Pacific Lutheran University in Tacoma, WA.
Since starting his private practice in Lewis County in 1995, Dr. Wagner has continued his education by attending local and national dental society meetings and study clubs to stay abreast of the newest orthodontic technology and treatment options. He stays active in the orthodontic and dental communities with several professional organizations:
- Cowlitz County Dental Society
- Lewis County Dental Society
- Washington State Society of Orthodontists
- American Association of Orthodontists
- Pacific Coast Society of Orthodontists
- American Dental Association
Dr. Wagner and his wife Julie met in high school in Adna, and raised their three sons—Peter, Parker, and Nolan—in this wonderful community. His oldest son is also pursuing a career in orthodontics! Dr. Wagner’s free time is most often spent hunting, fishing, and traveling with his family. Of course, cheering for his beloved Seahawks is a passion of his as well.
As a lifetime resident of Chehalis, Dr. Wagner is committed to making this community a better place for generations to come. He is active with the Lions Club and Rotary, and has always chosen to help those less fortunate through volunteer work.
