Welcome to Our Lab
Where Quality Craftsmanship & Artistic Expression Meet Five Days a Week
Trace Ortho Retainer
Owner, Operator and Master Technician, Tracie Thomas has worked in the dental industry for nearly 30 years, specializing in orthodontics since 1994, and appliance fabrication since 1999. After moving from Portland to Seattle in 2010, Trace decided to fuel her passion for appliance fabrication exclusively; and, after working for several in-house labs, decided to build her own practice from scratch, which she opened in late 2011. Having established partnerships with esteemed dentists and orthodontists in the greater Seattle and outlining areas, Tracie created a new gold standard in orthodontic appliance manufacturing, while simultaneously eliminating the void her core principle focusing on the total customer experience filled. Within five years, Trace Ortho Lab has grown to a client base of more than 150 practices, employing and training a staff of five full time employees.
As owners, as technicians and as a team, we stand behind our appliances, our doctors and each other. We remain dedicated to our core principles as a small business. Ignited by a leader with a dream, we are empowered by a well functioning team of respected professionals, each doing what he/she loves with passion, care and attention to detail.
Our entire team works closely through open communication and established in-house protocols to ensure your patients' cases have been delivered by your requested date and time. A quality customer experience with a dedicated team of professionals advocating for your success, all at a reasonable price? That's our priority as your partner in your practices' success. With as little as 48 hours to turn cases around without a rush fee, what do you have to lose? With your patients care as our focus and his/her success our priority, we make every effort to accommodate our doctors' styles, as well as their operating hours, typical rush periods, and lunch schedules.
