About the Doctor

Dr. Trevor Veltkamp

Trevor Veltkamp

Dr. Trevor Veltkamp is a Whatcom County native who learned to love gray drizzle at a very young age. He has two brothers and two sisters, all of whom now reside in Washington State. After graduating from Lynden Christian High School, Dr. Veltkamp attended Calvin College in Grand Rapids, Michigan and received a Bachelor of Science in Molecular Biology. He would also like to claim that he met his wife at that time (who was, coincidentally living in Grand Rapids) but alas, that pleasure had to wait another five years. He went on to earn his Doctorate in Dental Surgery from the University of Washington. He completed his orthodontic training at Baylor College of Dentistry where he received his orthodontic certificate and also obtained a Master of Oral Biology through the Texas A & M Health Sciences University.

Upon completion of his degrees, Dr. Veltkamp practiced in Ellensburg, Washington for seven years. After he and his wife had their third child, they decided it was time to finally come home, and Dr. Veltkamp has been practicing in Whatcom County since 2007.

Dr. Veltkamp’s orthodontic philosophy is to provide “the right treatment, at the right time, for the right reasons.” His orthodontic goals are to create a healthy, functional bite with a spectacular smile. He uses up-to-date research coupled with the best technology in addition to more than a decade of experience.

Dr. Veltkamp understands that one of the great joys and privileges of practicing orthodontics is the opportunity to develop relationships with patients and their families. Orthodontics not only encompasses the form and science of moving teeth, but also the art and pleasure of working with patients as he helps them enhance their self-image and improve their smiles.

Besides creating smiles, Dr. Veltkamp enjoys golfing, skiing, fishing, mountain climbing and coaching football. He occasionally grows giant pumpkins and has been seen kayaking in the oddest places. What he loves most is spending time with his wife and being a father to his children.
