Lake Washington Dental's Dr. Jake Park doesn't just want people in his community to have brighter smiles; his passion spreads well beyond city, county, and country borders. When Dr. Park isn't at his practice, he is often lending his dental expertise to underserved regions of the world at no cost, such as Mexico, Thailand, and Vietnam. At his hometown Kirkland practice, his prides himself on his use of some of the latest in dental technology, including digital x-ray machines, laser cavity detectors, and an advanced Tooth Fairy–detection system.
Apart from making our lives more efficient and ensuring that we can more easily answer nuanced questions about Golden Girls plotlines, technology can make us feel comfortable. At DMG Dental Design, Dr. David Myaskovsky grasps this modern concept and constantly seeks out innovative tools that expedite his procedures and set his clients at ease. In addition to low-radiation, digital x-ray systems, he outfits his treatment rooms with ultrasonic cleaning technology and laser cavity finders, which can more accurately detect decay before it causes extensive damage. The office also stocks the means for cosmetic treatments, from porcelain veneers to Zoom! teeth whitening.
Yet apart from technology, old-fashioned friendliness and a few amenities still help. At DMG Dental Design, a visual playground of glass sculptures entices the eye, with sconce lighting that resembles blue sea urchins stuck to the wall and an open treatment area divided by rectangles of opaque orange and green. Visitors can also augment their appointment by watching television, listening to music, or practicing their proficiency at speaking only in vowels.
The team at Progressive Dental Group regularly trains on the industry's latest technological developments to make their services as effective and pleasant as possible. Seattle-area natives and University of Washington School of Dentistry alums Drs. John Skibiel, Ranjiv Hayre, and Adam Berry call upon more than 35 years of combined experience as they provide cosmetic and family dental services, including single-visit CEREC crowns, dental implants, porcelain veneers, and teeth whitening. Dr. Berry was named a top area dentist by Seattle Met magazine in 2011.
Striving for patient comfort and entertainment, the crew outfits each treatment room with flat-screen TVs and WiFi access. The office's welcoming reception area invites clients to relax in plush armchairs arranged around the stone counter. A cozy fireplace warms hands in cold weather and eagerly consumes candy bars before they have the chance to induce cavities.
Shortly after Shivani Kant, DDS, graduated from the University of Washington School of Dentistry, she went about 15 miles north and opened Puget Park Dental. There, she and her staff run a family-friendly, community-minded practice that provides teeth cleaning, crown cementing, and cavity filling, among other general-dentistry duties. The practice works to keep kids comfortable with a play area and a post-appointment prize.
We are a private office that makes customer service our number one priority. We provide our patients one on one attention in a friendly, unhurried and relaxed atmosphere. We are a small staff who has worked together for many years. You will see the same people every time you come and get the best care.
