About Us

Welcome!

In dentistry, building a foundation of trust is vital to our success. We understand how apprehensive some patients may feel about their visit to the dentist and how we can make a difference by providing a relaxing and positive experience. Our entire team is dedicated to providing you with excellent, personalized care and service to make your visits as comfortable and pleasant as possible.

Preferred Insurance Coverage

For our patients who have dental insurance, we are happy to assist you in determining your available dental coverage in order for you to receive maximum benefits for which you are entitled.  Our loyalty is offered to you, not to an insurance company.  As your advocate, we will support you in every way possible in filing insurance claims and answering your insurance questions and concerns. After coordinating your insurance benefits, you will be responsible for any deductibles and/or balances remaining. We accept assignment from most insurance companies.  We are preferred providers for Premera Blue Cross, Regence Blue Shield, Delta Dental of Washington, and more. In addition, we work with Care Credit.  For more information about zero-interest credit for up to 18 months for dental procedures, visit CareCredit.com

After receiving my Doctorate in Dental Surgery, I came to Covington to work with Dr. Russell, my uncle. In August of 2010, I married the love of my life, Kelly. Together, we enjoy hiking, playing soccer, and travelling. Currently, I am a member of the Seattle-King County Dental Society, Washington State Dental Association, American Dental Association, and the Southshore branch of the Seattle Study Club. By staying up-to-date with the latest research and technology, and combining that with tried-and-true methods, I strive to achieve the highest level of quality the dental profession has to offer. I believe the key to that quality is communication.  Working with patients on an individual basis to develop a treatment plan that suits their specific needs and desires is the approach that I believe will best serve the people of Covington and the surrounding area. Together, you and I can achieve and sustain a healthy, beautiful smile. 2011 “America’s Top Dentists” Award Recipient
