Dentists in Seattle
Andrew Whitaker, 11/07/2004
I can whole-heartedly recommend Wallingford Dental Arts (google://wallingford dental arts). The office is run by a set of dentists, all of whom (in my experience) are extremely competent and friendly. And, they have the University insurance system down pat.

I use Dr. Charles Wallace on the Ave between 41st and 42nd Sts NE. I only really have experience with regular cleanings and a referral to get my wisdom teeth removed. For these purposes at least, Dr. Wallace and his staff have been highly satisfactory.

I go to Dr. Daniel Thacker in Kingston (you have to take the ferry to get there).
Apple Tree Cove Dental Ctr PO Box 149 Kingston, WA 98346-0149 Phone: (360) 297-3392
It seems like an overkill to take the ferry to go see your dentist, so why do I recommend him? Three reasons:
1. My wife is a dentist. She recommends that office (the truth is that I sometimes see my wife rather than Dr. Thacker). And no, she doesn't practice at that office, nor we derive any benefits from recommending people to go there.
2. They use very good materials and the dentist is good. Personally, I don't care too much about the staff being friendly. I think it's more important if the dentist is good and whether they're not into saving a couple of bucks by using inferior dental products.
3. That's the closest good dentist/good materials office we know of. We're not saying there aren't other good offices closer to UW.
By the way, the ferry ride is spectular ($5 per person both ways, no car).

Since Rachel posted so long ago, I want to reiterate what she said. I went to Dr. Barrett this summer and he and his staff were great. They were very friendly and professional, and they knew all about the insurance. It didn't cost me a penny.

Another recommendation for Dr. Robert Stark (dentist).
I agree with everything in Matthai's recommendation from 10-5-99. Very nice, modern office; friendly and professional staff. Staff knows about our insurance policy too.

Lynn Rowland (see below)
The first dentist I chose in Seattle was the right one. I'm very happy with Lynn Rowland. She's on the Ave. south of 42nd.

Very good, friendly, staff knows all about our insurance policy. Right on the Ave near school.

Robert Stark 4530 Union Pl NE, Suite 206 206-525-5000
His office is located just behind the university village. I've been going to him for about a year now, my wife has been going for a few years. We have found him (and his assistants) very professional and competent. The clinic is pleasant, bright and modern. I've gotten two wisdom teeth removed there, no problem. All in all, eons better than my previous Seattle dentist, a guy called Carey from the U District.

Very good; very nice, staff knows all about the insurance.
