Master Orthodontics
Dr. Carlos Caballero

Award-Winning Orthodontist in Pierce & Kitsap County

Dr. Carlos started his journey at the tender age of 11. It was his own experience with braces that left him mesmerized by the profession, and right then and there, he decided to become an orthodontist.

“I remember waiting for my appointment in the waiting room. The door opened and it was just one of those moments. The light went on for me when the orthodontist welcomed me to his office. Throughout my treatment, I always paid close attention to what he was doing. He was having so much fun, I was hypnotized by him!”

He completed his CAGS from Boston University and then received his MS degree at the University of Minnesota. He became the first Surgical and Craniofacial Orthodontic Fellow from Case Western Reserve University, where he graduated. Along the way, he won multiple awards and was published in the orthodontic field.

As a published orthodontic specialist, he has been recognized as a leader in his field. As a clinician, he is an Invisalign® VIP provider, placing him among the top 1% of providers worldwide. Dr. Carlos’ specialized orthodontic expertise offers children, teens, and adults an exceptional experience on their way to a beautifully straight smile. He is driven by a passionate desire to ensure patients of all ages receive the highest level of specialized orthodontic solutions.

Dr. Caballero supports the local community by sponsoring a variety of events and is an active blood donor.
