“What I love most about what I do is helping people ﬁnd conﬁdence with a smile they love. Too often people feel insecure and self-conscious about their teeth. Whether you’re an adult or a teenager, no one should have to live this way. What we've seen is that when people smile big, they live with greater confidence.” – Dr. Trujillo
Dr. Trujillo’s formal education began by receiving the highest scholarly honor from Bill Gates: a full-ride scholarship to any US University of his choice. With a strong passion for art and science, Dr. Trujillo knew early on that he wanted to pursue a career in the medical profession. He graduated from the University of Portland where he earned a Bachelor of Science in Biology. While there, he studied piano, was a nationally nominated academic All American swimmer, and swam for United States Swimming for Oregon and Hawaii Masters. His studies took him to Chaminade University of Honolulu as part of an exchange program, and to the University of Notre Dame-Australia, where he received a Certificate of International Studies.
Dr. Trujillo earned his Doctorate of Dental Medicine from the Arizona School of Dentistry, graduating Summa Cum Laude, and subsequently completed a Graduate Certificate of Public Health at University of Oklahoma, receiving his Certificate of Specialty in Orthodontics and earning a Master of Science degree in Orthodontics and Dentofacial Orthopedics.
He has been nominated by his peers as a Seattle's Best-Top Orthodontist 8 years in a row. Dr. Trujillo appreciates modern and evidence-based orthodontics and has provided award winning orthodontic care for the Seattle eastside for the last 10 years treating well over 8,000 patients. In Addition to orthodontics, he is also a quadruple certified transformational life coach with extensive training in leadership, psychology, behavior modification, cognitive behavioral therapy, and mindfulness based stress reduction.
Dr. Trujillo has achieved board certification through the American Board of Orthodontics (ABO), the only orthodontic specialty board recognized by the American Dental Association and in affiliation with the American Association of Orthodontists.
Dr. Trujillo understands the importance of fitting exceptional orthodontic care into busy patient lifestyles. With patient results and experience leading his orthodontic mission, his goal is to provide the best patient service full of joy, connection and fulfillment without bomboarding patients with excessively long or frequent appointments. Dr. Trujillo is a top 1% Invisalign provider in the USA and he stays current with the latest and greatest orthodontics has to offer.
Dr. Trujillo was born and raised in Portland, Oregon, and after completing his residency, returned home to the Great Northwest. He and his beautiful wife, Angela, were married in 2007. He has two daughters, Mia and Emma and they’re also the proud parents of a miniature dachshund and golden retriever, Cody and Oliver. In addition to Dr. Trujillo’s love of his family, he has a special interest in travel, culture, and psychology. To say that he is an outdoor enthusiast would be an understatement! Much of his free time is spent hiking, biking, swimming, and psychology coursework.
The honor of being a Bill Gates Scholar introduced Dr. Trujillo to service and academic and professional leadership. It is an experience that he now passes on to other young people as a mentor, not only for the Bill Gates Millennium Scholars Foundation, but in his office for patients with college and scholarship applications as well.
Community involvement and service is one of Dr. Trujillo’s greatest passions. He loves the Snoqualmie Valley, the families who live here, and his involvement in the Snoqualmie and North Bend area. He looks forward to growing with this amazing community for many years to come.
