After studying biochemistry and molecular biology as an undergrad, the Dr. Gannon B. Stahl earned his dental degree at the prestigious University of Washington School of Dentistry. Dr. Stahl has garnered acclaim from both patients and fellow dentists—he was named the best cosmetic dentist in Seattle magazine's Best of 2010 Reader's Choice Awards, and awarded a spot on the Seattle Met's peer-nominated Top Dentists lists in 2009, 2010, 2011, and 2012.
To elevate his expertise, Dr. Stahl uses state-of-the-art technology during treatments at Pineview Aesthetic & Family Dentistry. He wields a laser to target periodontal disease, and employs a CEREC 3-D imaging and milling machine to create same-day crowns or tiny busts of medieval kings. Dr. Stahl extends his warmth and expertise outside the walls of his clinic, donating a significant amount of his profits to charities and the local community, and providing free dental care for people in need.
If you hang around outside Distinctive Tan, you might notice a trend: everyone leaving the building has great-looking skin. At both locations, clients can get a custom bronze in either a UV tanning bed—of which the facilities offer a diverse array—or within Mystic Tan airbrush booths. But tanning isn't the only focus of the salons, which have been in business for more than 20 years. Their knowledgeable, Smart Tan–certified staff also supplies WhiteICE teeth-whitening kits and administers red-light therapy, a treatment designed to firm skin and minimize wrinkles wrought by age or time spent trying to impersonate an accordion.
Describing his dental work as a mission to "motivate, educate, and promote good oral health that can last a lifetime," Dr. Bill Wong and Dr. Peter Wong help to keep mouths pristine with general and cosmetic services. Using Zoom! whitening treatments, Invisalign tooth-straighteners, and an onsite ceramic tooth-fabricating machine, the dental duo can impose order on even the most jumbled of toothscapes. They also perform preventive measures, such as routine exams and x-rays, to ensure dental problems don't manifest themselves as cavities or tooth graffiti.
Dedicated expert Dr. Stacy Pacheco straightens top and bottom gnashers with the advanced computer technology of Invisalign, whose clear aligners make precise adjustments to tooth orientation. First, Dr. Pacheco assesses overall oral health with a comprehensive exam, followed by x-rays and oral and facial photos. Next, she mints a series of mouth sheaths that prevent the hassles of traditional braces, such as constantly having to dodge wily scrap-metal collectors. Invisalignees can remove aligners while eating, drinking, and brushing their teeth. Treatment times average 9–24 months, during which time patients will visit Dr. Pacheco every six weeks to ensure healthy progress and trade out aligner sets, which total 18–30 throughout the process on average. If needed, Dr. Pacheco will make up to three revisions to the original case of aligners and one midcourse correction. Dr. Pacheco is also a preferred Invisalign Provider.
Drs. Tigran Khachatryan and Greg Rice lead an enamel-enthused staff as they sleuth out oral issues and shine smiles with Zoom! 2 whitening treatments. During a 15-minute exam, gentle dental detectives search teeth for evidence of lurking problems such as cavities or gummy-bear outlaws on the lam. Bitewing x-rays expose back teeth to the dentists' scrutiny; patients opting for a panoramic x-ray have entire teethscapes captured for a fuller evaluation of their biters. To whiten grins, the staff paints teeth with Zoom! 2 whitening gel, then leaves them to bask beneath the glow of a special LED light. Whitening sessions last about an hour, leaving chompers up to 8 shades brighter and 10 times more likely to pass the LSAT.
As long as the Oregon Trail, the list of services at Bellevue Park Dental emphasizes preventative care and doesn't skimp on advanced technology. The staff uses digital imaging that reduces the number of exams a patient needs and intraoral cameras that light up the mouth the same way robots smile—with LED lights. Despite its focus on the best modern equipment, the team doesn't neglect the simplest mandate of a professional medical establishment, though: a clean, safe office. Bellevue Park makes it their business to follow every last guideline set forth by the OSHA, EPA, and CDC. This means they chemically disinfect all surfaces, sterilize all nondisposable tools before each use, and refuse to admit any dogs that haven't showered and put on their finest suit. A family practice, Bellevue Park Dental welcomes all types of patients into this sterling environment and also offers a full lineup of cosmetic and orthodontic treatments.
