Meet Dr. Ethan Larson

Dr. Ethan Larson is originally from the Northwest, growing up in Bothell, Washington. After earning a B.A. in Biology from Covenant College, he attended the University of Alabama Dental School, where he received his doctorate degree. 

Dr. Larson was among a very select few chosen to continue post-graduate education in orthodontics. Three more years of intense orthodontic residency provided Dr. Larson with a post-doctoral degree, specifically, a master’s degree (M.S.) in Oral Biology and a Certificate of Specialty in Orthodontics. Today, he remains passionate about his work as an orthodontist in Puyallup, WA. 

Dr. Larson and his wife, Dolly, have four children: Ruthie, Chandler, Olivia, and Austin. Two of their children attend Cascade Christian School and two are at home, making this an active and fun time of life for the Larson family. They are often at their children’s sports games and school programs and are striving to find the balance between extracurricular activities and family life. Some of their favorite activities include relaxing by playing board games, riding bikes, and watching movies together. Each member of the family enjoys a variety of water sports, and during the summer they are never far from a pool or lake. The Larsons are also building up an impressive road trip record.

Having spent so many years in the South, Dr. Larson has become an avid football fan. He loves to cheer for the University of Alabama, but concedes that his loyalties to the Seahawks and Huskies trump his passion for the SEC. Coincidentally, fall is his very favorite time of year.

Dr. Larson is passionate about pursing his faith through outreach in his community.
