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.
Frequently Asked Questions:
If you are in need of treatment, Dr Wagner will recommend an appliance specific to your dental needs. Some of the treatment options available include: Traditional braces, Clear braces and Invisalign.
Treatment times vary depending on your specific course of treatment, but with the new cutting-edge technology, the average treatment time is 18-24 months.
Brush your teeth by using a regular soft toothbrush. Brush down from the top and then up from the bottom on each tooth; always brushing away from your gums. Use a gentle sawing motion to work the floss on each side of the two teeth the floss is between. Be careful not to pull with too much force around the archwire.
That varies per patient but there is new technology that uses memory shape, heat activated wires that work without needing painful adjustments, decreasing the amount of office visits necessary to complete treatment. The average time between visits can range from 8-10 weeks. As you come close to finishing treatment, Dr. Wagner may want to see you more often, typically between 4-6 weeks during your last few months, to fine tune your final tooth movements.
The cost of your treatment will vary depending on your specific dental requirements. Once we complete a new patient exam and create a treatment plan for you, you will meet with a treatment coordinator to discuss the costs and payment plans available to you. We will work with you to create a payment plan that is tailored to your needs and budget.
