      Forming the Smart Orthodontic Group

      In 2015, Dr. Kokich joined together with Dr. Chad Smart and Dr. Timothy Quinn to form the Smart Orthodontic Group and the Smart, Kokich and Quinn Orthodontics clinics, one in Tacoma and one in Gig Harbor.

      What brought these three top orthodontists together? Friendship, shared values and mutual professional respect.


          On a personal note, practicing in Tacoma means a great deal to Dr. Kokich. It's where his dad practiced orthodontics for 35 years and it's where he's been fortunate to build relationships with patients throughout his professional life. Dr. Kokich lives right here in Tacoma, WA. His other passions include: golf, skiing, and just spending time with his wife, Michelle, and their four children (Maddy, Nick, Luke, and Kate).
