Dr. Trevor Veltkamp is a Whatcom County native who learned to love gray drizzle at a very young age. Although he was gone for 17 years — to earn degrees from Calvin College, the University of Washington, Baylor, and Texas A & M — his heart was always in Whatcom County.
Upon completion of his degrees, Dr. Veltkamp practiced in Ellensburg for seven years. After he and his wife had their third child, they decided it was finally time to 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 aim to create a healthy, functional bite with a spectacular smile. He uses up-to-date research, coupled with the best technology, and draws upon more than two decades 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 smile.
Besides creating smiles, Dr. Veltkamp enjoys golfing, skiing, fishing, mountain climbing, and coaching football. He occasionally grows giant pumpkins, has been seen kayaking in the oddest places, and is not afraid to try new adventures. He has had the privilege of serving various humanitarian causes, both locally and abroad. What he loves most is spending time with his wife (Dr. Jody Veltkamp) and being a father to his children.
