Orthodontic Background

Dr. Raymond Maxwell, or “Dr. Max,” as his patients know him, has been serving Monroe and neighboring communities since 1995. Dr. Max is highly creative and not just in the unique dinosaur-themed design of his office. Prior to entering dentistry, he was an amateur cartoonist and was published in the Seattle Times. He enjoys a good laugh and making the process of orthodontics both enjoyable and efficient.

Dr. Maxwell attended the University of Washington School of Dentistry where he graduated with honors. He was elected to Omicron Kappa Upsilon, the National Dental Honor Society. Admission and membership to OKU is limited to those dental students who have distinguished themselves by excellence in scholarship, while demonstrating exemplary traits of character and potential qualities for future professional growth and attainments. He obtained his orthodontics training at the University of California, San Francisco.

Dr. Max has been named as a Top Dentist by Seattle Magazine for 2014. Ballots are sent out annually to members of the American Dental Association, and votes are cast based on which dentist they would refer a patient to. Congratulations to Dr. Max for being included on this prestigious list five years in a row!
