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.
Dr. Robert D. Forbes, a seasoned eye whisperer dedicated to ferreting out sight solutions for each patient's individual needs, supplies vision aids and tests to ocular owners of all sorts. During a comprehensive eye exam, Dr. Forbes treats peepers to a dazzling show of light and color. A phoropter measures refraction, while a modified Snellen chart tests patient’s familiarity with the Hungarian alphabet. Once pupils have been dilated and optic nerves exercised, Dr. Forbes can determine a new prescription to remove your visibility’s fuzzy edges. With the second option, sight-seekers can sport a new pair of specs ($184–$1,100) with brand-name frames. Encase your orbs in premium lenses to better see the feral raccoon you’ve mistaken for your child.
