What Sets Us Apart

Welcome to Bruner Orthodontics! Dr. Matthew Bruner is a board-certified orthodontist (a specialist in orthodontics and dentofacial orthopedics) in Redmond, WA and Duvall, WA. Our practice was started by Dr. Stan Gile and has been striving to provide the best orthodontic care to patients from Redmond, Bellevue, Kirkland, Woodinville, Seattle, Sammamish, Fall City, Duvall, Carnation, and Monroe for more than three decades! We are pleased that you have decided to begin your orthodontic treatment with us.

Braces are an investment that will benefit you for the rest of your life. An improved smile helps build self-esteem, establishes facial balance and ideal function for your teeth and jaws, and allows for better long-term health. Our goal is for every patient to achieve a beautiful, healthy smile that will last a lifetime.

Our Treatments

We provide the absolute best orthodontic treatment with braces or Invisalign®. Our different treatments include: comprehensive orthodontic treatment with Damon® Smile or Invisalign, limited orthodontic treatment, early orthodontic treatment (Phase I braces), adult orthodontic treatment, orthognathic surgical treatment of severe malocclusions, and difficult interdisciplinary orthodontic treatment to help your dentist or team of dentists achieve the best results.

Our Office

Bruner Orthodontics is an award-winning orthodontic office. The design is thoroughly high-tech, modern, comfortable, and thoughtfully crafted with you in mind. The office location is conveniently nestled in Redmond and just minutes away from downtown Bellevue, Kirkland, and Woodinville. We have patients that routinely seek us out for their orthodontic care and travel from Bothell-Everett, Monroe, Duvall, Carnation, Fall City, and Issaquah.

Although our state-of-the-art facility was built in 2009 and remodeled in 2014, the office has been in the same location since it began with Dr. Gile in 1980. The Bear Creek Professional Center has ample parking and is easy to find.

From the moment you walk in, we want you to feel comfortable. We understand that our patients are busy, so everything we do is with excellent customer service in mind. We try to be efficient with our care, and that means fewer appointments and less overall treatment time for our patients.

What else makes us unique?

  5. Dr. Bruner and Dr. Helgen are interested in being the best orthodontists they can be. Both believe in pursuing certification through the American Board of Orthodontics.

  8. We work hard to make sure our patients have easy access to care. Having two locations allows us to offer more available appointment times. We can often get you a same-day appointment when necessary!
  9. We utilize state-of-the-art, hospital-level sterilization for your safety and health.
  10. We are committed to clinical excellence. Excellent results mean excellent oral health as well. Our oral hygiene program includes patient education, an electric toothbrush, oral hygiene grades/scoring at each appointment, and a report card from your hygienist at your four-to-six-month cleaning. We even have drawings for things like a new iPod Touch for those who participate in our Hygienist Report Card Program.
