Tamara Denning, February 2010

I've had a good couple of visits to Union Bay Dental Care. They sent out a recruitment card in the mail that gives a free exam/cleaning or $200 off of a service (crown, etc.). The staff are friendly and seem to have a lot of different kinds of cleaning machines. No complaints.

I can recommend Dr. Susan Miller at Pinehurst Dental Center. She answered a variety of questions knowledgeably, and she and her staff gave me informed opinions about recent dental technology. Insurance covered everything (normal checkup). 2063673700; 115th & 15th NE.

Tamara Denning, 07-April-2008

I wanted to find a dentist that accepted both the WPAS grad insurance and my boyfriend's insurance (MetLife). Robert Stark's office does, but they weren't taking any new patients until 6 months after the date I called in. Instead, I did a web search and went to Dr. Nash at 70th and 35th. I give them a neutral review - the office was pleasant and the staff were friendly and professional. Most of my time was spent with the dental hygienist who did a manual cleaning, with Dr. Nash popping in near the end to look things over. On the negative side, the gadgets that you bite on for x-rays seemed a bit bulkier and pokier than usual, and they kept asking me to open my mouth a result, my jaw ached for the next day.

Another thumbs up for 32 Good Reasons. A little sore from the cleaning, but they were friendly and thorough.

I recommend Dr. William Thompson and Laser Dentistry of Seattle. The staff is very friendly and he provides a drill/anesthetic free alternative for routine dental work (eg. fillings). Personally, I don't respond well to novocaine so finding his office has been a godsend. There's only one caveat, its about 10 miles away from the UW. If you are interested his number is (206) 242-5800.

Susumu Harada, 28-Feb-2005

Another thumbs up for 32 Good Reasons. Had a small filling without any anesthetics and didn't feel a thing. Pain free treatment as well as pain free insurance handling (they were very accurate on the quote they gave me).

Gary Yngve, 22-Dec-2004

I had some work done at Stacy Gilmore's office (see Sarah's entry), and it was quite excellent. Very friendly staff.

Peter Mork, 13-Dec-2004

I agree with Neva and Rachel. My whole family uses 32 Good Reasons (Dr. Barrett's office). My wife is very leery of dentists (due to oral surgery without anasthesia as a child), but they've been very good to her. She just had a pain-free root canal!

Ethan Phelps-Goodman, 12/12/2004

I went to Lynn Rowland once, and I'd say she was only OK. She was very friendly, and it was easy to make an appointment, but I didn't think the cleaning was nearly as thurough as I got from my dentist back home. And it was done entirely by a dental assistant, not the dentist. Maybe that's normal though.

Sarah Schwarm, 12/10/2004

I see Dr. Stacy Gilmore, and am very pleased with her office for both regular cleanings (they know our insurance, I never touch any paperwork) and more extensive work. I recently had a crown put on one of my front teeth to permanently repair a broken tooth from a high school mishap involving a field hockey stick, and I'm very pleased with the results. (The process of getting the crown done was a lot less unpleasant than I feared, too.)

Her office contact info is: 3216 NE 45th Pl Ste 302 Seattle, WA 98105 (206) 522-0443

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.

Andy Schwerin, 03-27-2007

I have been using Dr. Charles Wallace, on Eastlake Ave E, since late 2001. I have received regular cleanings and a referral for wisdom tooth removal, and been highly satisfied.

Stefan Saroiu, 09-24-2004

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).


Neva Cherniavsky, 09-24-2004

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.

Ernest Barrett 1107 NE 45th St. Suite 220 (206)632-9400

Dmitriy Portnov, 09-05-2001

Robert Stark 4530 Union Pl NE, Suite 206 phone 206-525-5000

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.

Craig Kaplan, 09-04-2001

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.

Denise Pinnel, 10-05-1999

Lynn Rowland 4115 Univ Way Suite 110 phone: 632-7575

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

Matthai Philipose, 10-05-1999

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.

Rachel Pottinger, 10-04-1999

Ernest Barrett 1107 NE 45th St. Suite 220

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