Dr. Rooz Talks About 3D Printing Technology
Dr. Rooz developed the PORTH Clear Aligner system, an innovative method of creating customized clear aligners utilizing advances in technology and 3D printing.

The PORTH Story
Early in his residency at the University of Washington, Dr. Rooz and his wife went for a hike east of Seattle.
On the way home they stopped at Homegrown in Sammamish, and immediately felt something for this place. Dr. Rooz loved the Sammamish small town feel, with a diverse population and a strong sense that it was on the brink of change. This town was growing in leaps and bounds, and he wanted to be a part of it.
A few weeks later, Dr. Rooz's real estate broker introduced him to TRF Sammamish Project and the rest is history!
