If Dr. Noé Flores could give his chiropractic patients one piece of advice, it would be to work toward preventing pains before they start. By incorporating lifestyle coaching and practical postural-advice into his visits, he helps to fulfill his goal of helping patients practice prevention as much as he helps them relieve their pains. New patients experience an in-depth consultation during which Dr. Flores assesses their current issues, the number of bowling balls currently stuffed in their mattresses, and their goals for treatment, before he administers tests or treatment. During adjustments, he uses a low-pressure technique as a way to keep his patients comfortable. In some cases, he uses auricular therapy, a type of ear acupuncture that helps release endorphins and reduces pain. Building on his preventive ideas, the doctor and his team also give their patients exercises they can perform on their own to promote wellness outside his office.

Our office has been designed with the comforts and care we know our patients deserve and want. We offer only the finest in amenities and the latest in high-technology tools.
The My Premier Dental Group of America dental network links patients to private practices throughout the Pacific Northwest.

At Downtown Dental Care, Drs. Lance D. Bailey and Kirk Christianson combine their years of experience in general, restorative, and cosmetic dentistry in an office with a compassion-oriented philosophy. The doctors demonstrate their commitment to patients by participating in not-for-profit dentistry as well as such charitable organizations such as UNICEF, Pride Northwest, and Donated Dentistry, a clinic that administers free dental care for patients without insurance.
The doctors also devote themselves to continually honing their craft. Dr. Bailey cares for kids through his training in pediatric dentistry and for seniors with his advanced education in dentures. His training in laser dentistry, IV sedation, and CEREC one-visit crowns keeps him on the cutting edge of the industry. Meanwhile, Dr. Christianson’s advanced skills restore smiles beyond just the teeth with hard and soft tissue grafting and sinus surgery.
The team works to keep patients comfortable during each treatment. Every patient who wanders through the door, or chews their way through the wall, gets treated as an individual. The doctors thoroughly explain each treatment in order to reduce anxiety. During treatments, patients can keep tabs on the outside world with a flat-panel television and a broad window, both situated in front of the operatory chair.
